Providing a stable base of operation for cranes and heavy equipment in a wide variety of challenging terrains.
We’ll Get You There
Crane Mat is a generic term used to describe a heavy equipment mat made up of large timbers. The timbers within a crane mat have a common thickness, are green in moisture content, and are generally not graded for quality or strength. Typical sizes are 8” to 12” thick, 4’ wide, and 16’ to 40’ in length. Steel through-bolts connect timbers of random width to form the finished width of the mat. Acceptable service life for a crane mat ranges from 18 to 48 months. The EMTEK equivalent to a crane mat is constructed using hardwood laminated billets with a certified grade of Fb-3100 psi. Billets are pressure treated for decay resistance and through-bolted to form the finished width of the mat with steel edges. Typical sizes are 5.5” to 24” thick, 4’ to 8’ wide, and 14’ to 60’ in length. Acceptable service life for an EMTEK mat ranges from 48 to 96 months.
