ACCESS MATS

At YAK MAT, we provide solutions to create temporary roads, reduce ground pressure, and protect the environment. Our access mats are uniquely constructed, making them strong enough to withstand challenging terrains including swamps, streams, and bogs. Select one of our access mats below to see which is best for your project or contact us for a custom option.

Timber Mat

These heavy-duty mats are made of hardwood timbers providing temporary access roads in challenging terrain. Whether it is swamps, marshes, or any other wetland, our mats protect the environment and minimize ground pressure, while allowing equipment to cross. As the largest timber mat producer in North America, our inventory allows for rentals, purchase options, and utilization of used mats when necessary.

  • Precision drilled to meet exact specifications
  • Made of dense hardwoods
  • Each rod is notched for safety and security
  • Allows heavy equipment to cross
  • Various sizes including custom sizing available

3-Ply Laminated Mat

Our laminated mat provides the same access solutions as our hardwood timber mats. However, these mats are ideal for projects that need surface decking, temporary roads built, or for use with rubber tired equipment. In addition to construction usage, these can be utilized as ground pressure protection when transporting heavy equipment while also put down as general ground covering at events or areas with excessive mud and water.

  • Strengthened with 3 layers 2' x 8' of lumber

  • Chain pick up system
  • Made of dense hardwoods
  • Various sizes including custom sizing available

CLT Mat

As the most lightweight mat in the market, YAK MAT's CLT mat weighs 2/3 less than a standard hardwood timber mat, therefore providing a significant reduction in freight charges. This new technology is twice as strong and five times stiffer but not ideal for all access needs. Talk to one of our access solutions experts about this new technology and if it is an ideal fit for your project.

  • Lightweight material
  • Ideal for flat surfaces
  • Reduces transportation costs due to reduced weight
  • Various sizes up to 16'

Bridge Mat

Trenches, ditches, and swamps make it difficult for equipment to cross throughout different stages of a project. Utilizing our large hardwood bridge mats, your teams can easily create a temporary bridge, allowing heavy machinery to cross. These are not industry specific and may be used on any construction project.

Leasing vs Purchasing

YAK MAT brings the same level of complete dedication to the rental customer as it does the buying customer. We provide the largest inventory of mats throughout the country to serve our customer's needs. Regardless of whether you are purchasing or leasing, YAK MAT has solutions for your specific needs.

WHEN TO LEASE

Not every company will need mats upon completion of their project or have the storage capabilities necessary to house. That is why YAK MAT offers simple lease programs which allow customers the ability to use what they need, when they need them. Leasing minimizes the large upfront capital associated with purchasing mats, letting YAK MAT manage the inventory, installation and removal (if necessary), and logistics and transportation, beginning to end.

WHEN TO PURCHASE

Sometimes it may be necessary to keep an inventory of mats due to immediate needs or project demands that may occur during a mat shortage. In these events, your best option may be to purchase mats.
