Benefits of Using Access Matting – Part 2: Environment

Posted on Jun 10, 2019

As we covered in part 1 of this series, we know that safety is important on any project site. Following safety, protecting the environment is another key factor. It is necessary that industry considers the environmental impact, and the potential negative impacts that may be caused when planning and executing a project, especially in remote, agricultural and Indigenous land settings.

Industrial matting products, such as wood mats, rig mats and laminate mats, create a highly effective barrier for ground protection for sensitive terrains. In addition to decreasing ground disturbance from heavy equipment and traffic, temporary matting also helps to prevent soil or weed contamination in agriculture settings and promotes regrowth post-project so the land recovers quickly.

So along with safety, be sure to consider how industrial matting can help you minimize the environmental footprint of your next pipeline, power transmission, oil and gas or other type of construction projects.
