Which Size Mat Should I Use?

When deciding on which size of hardwood timber bogmats to use, here are a few guidelines:

70mm – Ideal for creating a temporary roadway on pipeline and construction sites. Suitable forlight construction equipment i.e excavators and dumpers

100mm – the most common size again used to create platforms and roadways

150mm – Ideal for the middle to heavyweight cranes, machinery and large trucks usually weighing 80 tonne. THis mat is often used as a sub-soil for pontoons or concrete floors, or in civil projects

200mm – For heavy cranes, construction equipment and caterpillar machinery with weight in excess of 100 tonnes

Please note that the above is intended as a guideline only as there are no accurate weight load test results. The correct mat choice remains the responsibility of the end user.
