The main purpose of this type of mat being to support diggers, cranes and other plant on areas where the ground needs protected or to facilitate a stable working area. We find that different sectors of the construction industry refer to our hardwood mats by different names ie. Demolition/Crane Hire speak of ‘Crane Mats’; Pipeline companies call them bog mats or timber mats.

We supply them all! To us they are the same product and the product we both hire and sell throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe

Please Note: ‘Ekki’ mats do technically imply that the wood used to make the mat is tropical Ekki (Azobe; Lophira alata) hardwood. However we do find that the majority of our enquiries requesting ‘Ekki’ mats are just wanting the generic hardwood bogmat – which we hold large stocks of in our yards throughout the UK – for both purchase and hire

We supply bog mats for:

  • Pipeline contracts – in oil, gas and Utility industry infrastructure projects
  • Wind Farms
  • Piling
  • Temporary bridges/crane outrigger mats
  • Marine and lake projects/piling/jetties
  • Construction and civil engineering contracts
  • Working platforms and tracks (for stability of cranes and other heavy plant)
  • On sites with hard surfaces and underground services requiring protection
