Heavy equipment construction mats are the perfect solution to many on-site issues for protecting your workers, your equipment, and the environment.
Here are just some of the reasons why you might need heavy equipment construction mats:
- To stabilize and distribute extreme loads from bulldozers, trenchers, loaders, dump trucks, pile boring/driving machines, cranes, oversized excavators, and oil and gas drilling equipment.
- For easy work-site access, better traction in wet weather, and temporary bridging or crossings.
- To keep heavy equipment clean, in good working order, and easily accessible.
- To keep workers safe from slipping or tripping in wet or muddy conditions.
- To prevent water from interfering with construction activities.
- To protect sensitive environmental areas such as wetlands or permafrost from rutting erosion gullies and water channeling under heavy flows while you’re working.
- For easy cleanup from mud, chemicals, and oil spills.
For any environment and every condition, you’ll always find a reason to use ground mats for heavy equipment.
What to Look for in Heavy Equipment Construction Mats
When looking to buy or rent heavy equipment construction mats, you want to make sure you get a mat product that can withstand every scenario you throw at it.
Here are a few features of good construction mats:
- Variable Sizes: You may need different lengths, widths, and depths depending on your specific site and equipment.
- Different Materials: You’ll want the choice of hardwood timber, laminated, or composite mat materials depending on your job.
- Easily Transportable: Mats should be lightweight enough to move around over and over again from site to site.
- Interlocking: You may want mats that connect together completely, eliminating tripping hazards.
- Durable: Mats should be built to withstand long-term repeated pressure from heavy equipment.
- Quickly Cleaned: Mats get dirty from mud, oil, and other chemicals so it’s helpful if they clean up easily.
- Special Additives: Good mats have special additives that are rot- and UV-resistant.
- Anti-Static: You don’t want mats that build up static and cause safety concerns.
- Cost-Effective: Mats that can be used for many years are more cost-effective than one-time use mats.
