Construction Mats – Dependable, Durable Walking and Working Construction Surfaces
The name ‘Construction Mats’ is a generic term that applies primarily to access mats used to gain access around construction sites. Not to be confused with the generic category ‘Heavy Equipment Mats’ which refers to the use of crane mats, timber matting or rig mats to make working platforms under extreme loads, or the term ‘oil field mat combo’ which refers to a specialty mat not used for access, construction mats are used to make all weather working, walking and driving surfaces. The matting serves two key purposes: it provides access to a relatively clean, smooth surface for the movement of people and equipment, and it keeps worksites open when the weather gets bad. Please see our mat comparison for the names and typical uses of the different mat types.
Construction mats are primarily used in all industries for access into unfavourable terrain. Common applications included
- oil and gas sector – temporary roads, platforming on leases, pipeline terminals, and facilities
- powerlines – tower erection
- electrical sub-stations
- construction of buildings and warehouses.
Becoming more commonplace are access mats deployed on residential housing projects. Contractors need to be aware of emerging legislation penalizing builders for depositing mud and debris on the streets, this penalty in an effort to keep deposits out of storm drains where it is very expensive to remove. Contractors will have a competitive advantage using Paradox’s construction mat solution by allowing mud-free site access in all weather. Developers are seeing the advantages of guaranteed safe site access. Regulations are changing – just as it has become mandatory to provide dumpsters and sanitary toilets on site, you will soon be required to have clean and safe access matting. We are here to help.
