The House Builders Construction Mat is our new 5m x 1m x 85mm oak mat, recently launched as a solution for house builders and developers. Filling the gap between the 70mm thick and 100mm thick ground mats, the new 85mm thick mat is ideal for supporting lighter equipment such as telehandlers and concrete mixers.
Our mats are very competitively priced and available for construction projects across the country from our UK-wide depots. They are already being used successfully for new home developments, being in high demand due to the excellent quality and the flexibility of sale or hire options, as well as the option of next day delivery if needed.

Why we created the new Build Mat Pro
Birketts noticed a gap in the ground mat market for a mat with a thickness between the available 100mm thick and 70mm thick mats. Contractors and building companies faced the dilemma of choosing between the two thicknesses without knowing which one was the most suitable for their project. As they were often just using bog mats to support lighter equipment, we used our forty years of experience in the ground mat industry to determine that an 85mm thick ground mat was what was needed.
Like all Birketts ground mats, our new House Builders Construction mat is robust and long-lasting, providing a cost effective solution to creating temporary access and a secure base on construction sites.
Our aim is to supply these new and unique ground mats to many more home developers. As with all our products, our quality is backed by outstanding and personal customer service. Supported by our 40 years of industry experience and our many depots across the UK, we hope to continue offering developers a constant and reliable supply of quality ground mats.
Praise for our new 85mm thick mat
Tim Barnes of luxury home builder, Galion, says: “We like to do things innovatively and in sustainable and lower-impact ways and Birketts Bogmats’ ground mats allowed us to rethink how we usually handle haulage road creation.
“Without these keenly priced mats from the ground mat market leader, we would have struggled to form a haul road without incurring ongoing refurbishment costs and would have always had the potential for the road to fail, as a possible on-site issue. By using Birketts’ ground mats, we have created a robust, yet easy-to-remove, haul road.”
Galion turned to Birketts bog mats for a haul road solution at its new LakeView development in Keinton Mandeville, Somerset. Using the new 85mm thick House Builders Construction Mat, they were able to create a robust trackway for delivery vehicles as well as telehandlers and concrete mixers. This not only enhanced site safety by increasing vehicle stability, but also supported their aim of reducing their environmental impact. Using the new access mats meant that there was minimal impact on the ground’s substrata and less waste as the ground mats are reusable.
