Western Canada is known for its breathtaking landscapes, but it's also home to some of the harshest terrains on the planet. From dense forests and swamps to frozen tundra and rugged mountains, the region presents formidable challenges for industries such as forestry, oil and gas, mining, and construction. Accessing remote worksites in these areas can be a daunting task, but there's a solution that's proving to be both safe and efficient: access mats.


The Challenge of Western Canadian Terrain


Western Canada's diverse topography poses a multitude of challenges for industries that rely on accessing remote locations. These challenges include:

  1. Inaccessible Terrain: Many worksites are situated in areas that lack proper roads or infrastructure, making access nearly impossible.

  2. Environmental Concerns: Western Canada is known for its pristine ecosystems. Traditional methods of accessing remote sites can disrupt these environments, causing lasting damage.

  3. Safety Risks: Navigating rugged terrain can be dangerous, leading to accidents and delays.

Access Mats: The Solution


Access mats, also known as construction mats, swamp mats, or road mats, are engineered solutions designed to conquer the toughest terrains in Western Canada. Here's how Mats Unlimited's high quality Access Mats provide a safe and efficient solution:

  1. Ground Stability: Our access mats create a stable and secure surface for heavy equipment and vehicles to traverse, reducing the risk of accidents and protecting the underlying soil.

  2. Environmental Preservation: Our mats are designed to minimize the environmental impact. They prevent soil erosion and habitat disruption, making them an eco-friendly choice.

  3. Versatile Applications: Our access mats can be used in a wide range of industries, from logging and oil and gas to power line construction and environmental restoration.

  4. Ease of Installation: Our access mats easy to install and remove thanks to their interlocking design, allowing for quick access to remote worksites without the need for extensive road construction.

  5. Cost-Efficiency: Our access mats are a cost-effective solution compared to building permanent infrastructure, especially for temporary or seasonal projects.
