crane mat in use

Our crane mats are robust and strong and made to last. Our 3m x 1m versions in either 100mm or 150mm thickness are an ideal solution for creating stable bases quickly and easily for crane operations on all kinds of construction sites and environments. Whilst these are the most popular solution, our 5m x 1m outrigger mats are gaining popularity and are a good alternative, especially when covering a larger surface area.

Delivered Europe wide our crane mats are made with two lifting points which enables them to be easily lifted and installed in place meaning you can keep your site running smoothly with little interruption of hassle. In fact, in most cases within the UK our crane mats can be delivered to site and quickly and easily laid the day after being ordered.

Our stable hardwood crane mats can be purchased or rented from us depending on your requirements. We recognise that for some companies, it’s more cost effective to rent and that’s why we offer competitive pricing for whichever scenario meets our customers needs and budget.
