CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER (CLT) ACCESS MAT
Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) Access Mats have all the durability of our traditional bolted access mat. They have the ability to lock to traditional bolted standard oak or fir mats but are much lighter. As you can see the example below, this revolutionary light weight mat delivers significant savings in trucking fees.
|Specification||CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) Access Mat||Traditional Bolted Access Mat|
|Shipping Cost*||$45,000||Fir $90,000
* Based a one thousand mat order, 325 miles cost approximately $2,000 based on a 45,000lbs load. (i.e. Billings to Williston)
