BOG MATS & CRANE MATS
TIMBER MAT SPECIES
Our Bog Mats are produced from either Oak or Tropical Hardwood, and depending on the type of project, different wood types provide different choices. Oak is the most common choice, as it is very cost effective and if used correctly can last for years. Bog Mats made from durable Tropical Hardwood can last for up to two decades.
OAK HARDWOOD MATS
Our oak mats are manufactured from European Oak, which is both durable and hardwearing when used as a temporary roadway application in all fields of the construction industry. As they are reusable, they are environmentally friendly and because As they are reusable, they are environmentally friendly and cause minimal ground disturbance, and we source them only from contracted sawmills in Europe which respect National Forest Management Plans.
Our Oak mats are produced to a high standard using 5 x 200mm beams, and depending on the size of the mat, 19mm to 24mm bolts, all countersunk with strong washers and nuts to give a smooth finish. They weigh from 320kg up to over 1 tonne per mat.
TROPICAL HARDWOOD MATS
These are manufactured using carefully selected Tropical Hardwoods from Africa and South America which are extremely durable and resistant to wear and tear. The main species we source for the production of Tropical Hardwood Mats are Ekki, Dabema, Mora and Cumaru as they all have the properties crucial to the production of a durable hardwearing mat, such as their hardness, interlocked grain and elasticity.
Ekki, an African species, is particularly known for its strength, whilst other species from Guyana also possess all the properties necessary for use in very severe conditions. They are perfect for use in water as their high density allows them to sink and stay at the bottom to provide a solid working platform.
