Piling is one of the more complex construction challenges, but can be deemed the most appropriate solution in a range of industrial, commercial, and residential projects. The use of the heavy-duty stakes can support the superstructure in a far more effective fashion. This ultimately enables teams to complete the work in a safe and efficient way without endangering lives or the surrounding environments.

Ahead of starting any piling project, though, it’s imperative that managers equip their teams with the right equipment and facilities. Bog mats are perhaps one of the most important items on the agenda. Here’s how they can support the team.

Spread the weight in a safe manner

When taking on this type of work, the new elements (or elements that will be raised) will be very heavy. Therefore, it’s imperative that the weight is distributed evenly. Otherwise, the overloading of existing features could result in collapsing or other major damage.

Birkett’s Bog Mats are currently working on a project at 3 Mills Studio to construct a higher flood defence wall. By spreading the load of the piling rig and construction plants, the current river wall is protected from overloading in an efficient manner. This perfectly highlights the importance of safe weight distribution through the use of a bog mat.

Protecting the surface

As well as protecting the construction by distributing the weight, bog mats can be used to create a protective layer over the top of surfaces throughout the project itself. The hard-wearing mats can be used to prevent damage to the surface such as dents and holes created from the use of heavy equipment and machinery, as well as scratching and weather damage.

The use of bog mats will also prevent machinery from toppling over thanks to the added stability, ensuring that the surface is actually less prone to encountering those pressures too. When working in difficult conditions, it also offers protection relating to water pipes and mains gas supplies as well as waterlogged or uneven land.

Create a safe access point

When access to certain areas of the site becomes tough due to soft or boggy grounds, bog mats are the ideal solution for supporting heavy machinery and enabling access to those challenging areas.
