Matrax Timber Mats

Matrax timber mats are standard construction timber mats made from all natural hardwood (no preservatives). They are constructed using top quality bolts (100% bolts & no nails) and overlapping boards. Bolts provide a stronger bond than nails between the boards and prevent breaks during use.

Matrax mixed hardwood timber mats are available in 2-ply and custom lengths with the following specifications:

  • 8’ x 14’ x 5.75” Standard
  • Approximate weight: 2,150 to 2,800 lbs. per mat
  • 112 sq. ft. usable surface area
  • 18 to 21 mats per truckload on average
  • Mixed hardwoods, hybrids
  • 5,000 mats in our rental fleet
  • 2 Ply & custom lengths available

GluLam Timber Access Mat

Glulam is a stress-rated engineered wood product comprised of wood laminations, or “lams,” that are bonded together with strong, waterproof adhesive.  GluLam timber mats weigh less than traditional 3-ply mats yet are twice as strong and five times stiffer than traditional bolted mats. The revolutionary glulam design ensures a strong, solid top, making them easy to clean to prevent site to site contamination.
