Durable & Robust Solutions, Yet Lightweight for Easy Transport
Developing & using the right temporary roadway mat system is imperative for ensuring job site access that fits your budget. One size does not fit all; over-engineering a temporary or portable road solution can be costly. Our team of site access specialists can assist in identifying the most cost effective temporary road solution for your unique site access challenge and subsurface condition.
Types of Temporary Roadway Systems
Since not every construction site is the same, we offer a wide range of temporary or portable roadway mat systems for wetlands, marshes and other difficult-to-access terrain. Our systems, described below, are engineered to offer ultimate versatility to support a variety of applications.
The Matrax Strong Plank access mat is a durable engineered option that is available for rental or purchase. Made of steel, these mats last 15-20 years, yet they weigh about 50% less than the traditional steel road plate. The lightweight design of these mats allows them to serve as a cost-effective temporary road alternative without sacrificing load capacity.

Dura-Base® interlocking composite mats are great for parking lots, fields and turf. Unlike rigid steel or wood, composite plastic mats conform to uneven terrain, and the interlocking feature keeps each mat from the “hopping” effect experienced with other products on extreme slopes. The mats are semi-buoyant and have a non-skid tread pattern for tracked or wheeled vehicles, making them the ideal swamp mats solution.

Matrax timber mats are constructed from natural hardwood (no preservatives) and cross-laminated making them stronger and stiffer than other timber mats on the market. These mats are ideal for large areas of flat terrain including grass, mud or even snow.

Using only the best dense hardwoods, our crane mats are designed to support heavy duty machinery. Crane mats are a common solution for excavator and crane stabilization platforms, stream crossings, drainage ditch crossings and areas of extreme saturation and swamps. These mats are designed with the contractor in mind, featuring notches that hold 1-¼” bolts on each end for easy lifting.
