Matrax Matting Beats Out Stone to Create a Safe, Efficient Laydown Yard for Duke Energy

To create a safe and efficient laydown yard for powerline contractors’ service trucks and equipment, Duke Energy needed an affordable alternative to stone, which was not readily available in Clearwater Florida. To cover the 3 acre yard, Matrax graded the area and installed 125,000 square feet of 3-ply solid deck timber matting. The Matrax installation team finished the job in just 4 days.

The matting, which will be in place for up to 4 years, is temporary and therefore required no civil permitting, providing another important advantage over other options.
