Truck Mats, Swamp Mats & More
Laminated crane mats are also called laminated truck mats, swamp mats, grid mats, waffle mats, three-ply mats, and board road mats. Laminated truck mats are the most cost effective mat based on square footage.
A large majority of Spartan Mat’s laminated mats go on trucks to drill sites and also mats on rail cars into Canada to serve the oil sands and transmission line projects in Alberta and other Canadian provinces.
Most temporary roads and access roads including logging roads, pipeline roads, and transmission line roads will use these starter mats or wood mats for this application.
Benefits of Laminated Truck Mats
- Ideal for lighter loads, such as trucks and other rubber-tire vehicles
- Useful for creating staging areas and road turnouts
- Creates better project site stability in wet weather
- Leaves a minimal mark on the environment, whether wetlands, permafrost, or sand
Laminated mats are strong, durable hardwood mats that have a variety of uses on a construction site or for gaining access to a site. They are ideal for using underneath lighter loads, such as trucks and other rubber-tire vehicles, and are the most cost-effective mat available based on square footage.
Types of Laminated Mats
There are many different names for laminated mats, but they all refer to the same product:
- Laminated truck mats
- Grid mats
- Three-ply mats
- Board road mats
- Waffle mats
- Swamp mats
Spartan Mat constructs most of our laminated mats with hardwood (though some mats in our buyback inventory are constructed from bamboo and we also offer an equivalent composite mat). They are usually made from 2x8 timbers and are 4”-6” thick, 8’ wide, and come in lengths from 12’-16’. Custom sizes are available.
Laminated mats are typically made with two or three layers and assembled with nails or bolts. These mats are available with or without lifting chains or cables.
The Uses for Laminated Mats
A large majority of Spartan Mat’s laminated mats go to drill sites in Canada to serve the oil sands and transmission line projects. In addition, many are used for the following:
- Logging, pipeline, and transmission line roads
- Road turnouts
- Staging areas
The Benefits of Laminated Mats
As mentioned before, laminated mats are the most cost-effective of any other mat. However, the benefits don’t end there. These mats (and other mat products) create better site stability in wet weather and leave a minimal mark on the environment, whether wetlands, permafrost, or sand.
