Tips for Timber & Crane Mat Installation

  • If installing timber and crane mats on a wetland area, run your mats across the terrain until they reach solid ground. Missing spots may lead to environmental degradation.
  • Use machinery for laying down mats. To install your timber and crane mats, especially for large construction projects, use vehicles like track excavators or skid steers for best results.
  • Use the lifting bolts to make timber and crane mat installation easy. Timber mats come with two lifting bolts on each end, enabling them to be lifted and moved into place using machinery.
