Product Advantages


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
Weight 1000lbs. Fir 1,975lbs
Oak 3,000lbs
Shipping Cost* $45,000 Fir $90,000
Oak $135,000

* Based a one thousand mat order, 325 miles cost approximately $2,000 based on a 45,000lbs load. (i.e. Billings to Williston)



Our traditional bolted mat is also an extremely durable product, and with Rig Mats of America’s strict product control, improved design and construction, these mats are built to last.
