How To Determine The Right Portable Roadway Mats for Your Situation
- Calculate the number of times you might need to use the roadway mats per year.
- Determine the total weight of the equipment that the mats will need to support.
- Calculate the amount of time that you will need for the roadway installation.
- Determine the type of grade that the ground roadway mats will be installed over.
- Consider the types of tires on your equipment - some roadway mats are only suitable for use with rubber tires.
Top Reasons Why Temporary Roadway Mats Are Better Than Plywood
Sometimes, businesses think that using plywood as a temporary roadway will be faster, cheaper, and easier than investing in temporary road mats. Unfortunately, that's not the case, and only after you start in on your project will you discover that plywood is far inferior to portable roadway mats, which have been specifically designed for the task at hand.
Consider the following if you're thinking about using plywood instead of roadway mats:
- Plywood splinters - Under significant weight, and under repeated or regular use, plywood won't hold up. Your sheets will start to splinter, and you'll need to purchase new replacement materials, as well as spend the time installing the new plywood.
- Plywood gets waterlogged - When plywood is exposed to water for extended periods of time, it absorbs that water. This results in soggy, softened, waterlogged wood. It becomes slippery, and your machinery may start to slip on the plywood or slide right off of it.
- Plywood warps - With exposure to water and significant weight, plywood starts to warp. Your smooth road will be anything but, and will become more difficult to navigate.
- Plywood can move - In short, plywood isn't designed to create a temporary road that will see heavy machinery traffic. The wood can move and be dislodged, especially if placed over grass.
- Plywood can't be reused - With splintering, warping, and waterlogging issues, plywood can't be reused in future projects. You're investing in a product that you'll have to throw away at the end of each project - you're literally throwing money away.
If you want your project to go smoothly, and you want to preserve the integrity of the landscaping beneath your temporary roadway, then you must invest in temporary roadway mats. These mats connect together so they won't dislodge, and are specifically manufactured to be able to cope with the varying terrains and moisture issues associated with outdoor work.
Additionally, our mats have undergone meticulous testing and are rated to withstand the large amounts of weight that heavy machinery brings. There's no splintering or breaking to worry about; just install your roadway and use it without worry. Mats are an investment in a product that you can use again and again.
