If yes, please read on. If no, here’s the quick answer to satisfy your curiosity, obviously intense enough to bring you here to the home of hardwood mats. A hardwood mat keeps you from getting stuck. So now, for all you who answered yes to our question about getting stuck in the mud, here’s the rest of the scoop on hardwood mats. A hardwood mat is a tool. A hardwood mat is a necessity in all types of terrain. A hardwood mat saves money. A hardwood mat saves time.

A hardwood mat does a lot of things. The basic construction of a hardwood mat (also known as a crane mat) is pretty simple. A mat is built by bolting together large pieces of timber. The specs of the timber can vary pretty widely, so check out our specs and mat sizes. There are a lot of different functions for hardwood mats, so the shape a mat is built in can range from mostly square to more rectangular. Bridge mats are one such example. They are built primarily for spanning larger distances over loose or wet soil, swamp, marsh, and even stream. They are built with long timbers to span larger distances than normal. Laminated mats, on the other hand, are much more squarely built. They can be used to build work spaces, parking areas, and stable footing over soggy or fragile terrain. Because they are often used in tandem with many other mats, their square shape helps ensure a sung fit and an easy time laying the mats. There is nothing like a game of Tetris while trying to prepare a jobsite. With that simple overview out of the way, next time we’re going to look at some of the finer details of hardwood mats and their roles on the jobsite.

When it comes to gasoline and other refined petroleum products, we find another huge number of mats across the miles of pipeline. This kind of petroleum is piped around the country through roughly 95,000 miles of pipeline. This number, however large it is, is dwarfed by the number of miles of natural gas lines that weave throughout the continent. More than 1.8 million miles natural gas pipeline weave throughout the in the Untied States alone. This bumps the a total number of miles of pipeline in the United States to more than 2 million… and that number is growing every day. Some people estimate that new pipeline construction in the beginning of the new millennium will be more prolific than any other period since the 1950’s.  Enter hardwood mats.
