Nuclear & Power

The nuclear and power industry is one of the most important in the world. It provides energy for homes and businesses, and powers some of the most important machines on the planet. But it’s also an industry that comes with a lot of dangers and so companies in this industry need to be extra careful when it comes to choosing the right products for their needs.

An important product for use in the nuclear and power industry is the crane mat. Our hardwood bog mats are designed to provide a stable and strong foundation for cranes, which are essential for moving heavy loads. But just as importantly, they are able to withstand the high temperatures and radiation that come with working in this industry.

Utility Companies

Utility companies often need mats for a variety of purposes, including protecting equipment from being damaged by heavy trucks, providing a stable work surface for crews, and preventing erosion around work sites.

Our hardwood bog mats are an ideal solution for these needs, as they are durable, easy to deploy and remove, as well as being very effective at preventing damage and erosion.

Construction Industry

Crane mats have been in use in the construction industry for a while now to provide stability and support during construction projects. They are also used to protect the environment by preventing damage to the ground underneath.

There are different types of crane mats available on the market, each with their own advantages. It is important to choose the right mat for a project, as using the wrong one can result in problems. At Birketts we’re always happy to discuss requirements and recommend the right product for that application.

Events & Festivals

Whether you’re hosting a music festival, a food and drink festival, or any other type of event, our bog mats can provide a firm footing for guests, turning slippery ground into a steady surface.

They’re easy to install and remove, and they can be used on their own or in conjunction with each other to create a larger surface area. Plus, they prevent sinking into mud, so your guests can enjoy your event without worrying about getting dirty.

Corporate & Private Landowners

For corporate and private landowners, timber bog mats are a useful investment to help protect their land. As well as providing a safe and stable surface for people to walk on, they can also help protect the ground and sensitive environments from damage.
