Crane Mats: Providing Strong Protection

Bringing in cranes for heavy construction lifting is pointless if the ground where the cranes sits is soft, uneven or unstable. Just imagine a huge machine tipping and falling over while lifting a steel beam or other material. The results could be disastrous! That’s why crane mats are vital to any job with questionable ground conditions.

Providing Strong Protection

Quality Mat Company’s crane mats are made from strong, interlocking oak timbers reinforced with steel rods. They bear heavy weights and stand up to the harshest conditions, while delivering stability even in marshy areas. Tough construction means they’re reusable as well, which saves resources, time and money. The untreated timber won’t harm the environment, and the protection Quality Mat’s digging mats provide allows quick ground recovery when a job is done.

Multiple Uses for Crane Mats

In addition to supporting all types of building construction, crane mats protect underground utility lines, as well. They help the pipeline industry with stabilization during digging, and they also benefit cleanup efforts after natural disasters and environmental spills.

Customization Options

Standard mat sizes offer considerable variety; however, custom sizes are available for specific needs. Additional options include a choice of attached chains, bolts or cables for lifting.

Mat rentals accommodate a range of needs, from supplementing a few days’ work to fully supplying a months-long job, and used crane mats are budget-friendly.
