Imagine trying to do construction work on muddy, soft ground. If you have experience in the construction field, it’s not hard to see why that’s a bad idea. Construction equipment is large and heavy, and if you don’t take the right precautions, it’s all too easy for your equipment to get stuck – or to do serious damage to the ground around your construction site. Oil drilling sites, solar farms, and pipeline sites often have similar problems.
Fortunately, there’s a solution. Bog mats make it easier to transport heavy equipment and machinery back and forth to a site without damaging the ground or the equipment itself.
What Are Bog Mats?
Bog mats are mats designed to protect and stabilize the ground. They are usually made of either wood or plastic. For example, the high-tech bog mats made by JWA are made from high density polyethylene, UV stabilizers, and static dissipaters. Bog mats come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Bog mats can be used at construction sites to provide a firm base for equipment like cranes. They can also be used as access roads to and from a drilling or construction site, so that workers can transport equipment back and forth over soft ground easily.
When Should You Use Bog Mats?
Bog mats can be used in a wide variety of situations. Anytime you need to protect the ground, create a stable working surface outside, or move a lot of heavy machinery without making deep ruts in the ground, you might want to consider using bog mats.
Bog mats can be used on a wide variety of different terrain types. If you live in a marshy or swampy area, mats are an ideal solution for protecting the wet ground. Bog mats can also be used to stabilize the ground in sandy environments like deserts and beaches. They’re ideal for building simple access roads across small creeks and streams. Bog mats can even be used over snow.
Bog mats are useful for people working in many different fields. Construction teams make frequent use of mats to improve safety and efficiency on-site. People who work in the drilling, pipeline, and power industries also use bog mats frequently.
Any kind of outdoor work that involves heavy machinery can be hard on the ground. Wet or unstable ground can also create dangerous working conditions for construction crews and other workers. Bog mats were invented to solve both of these problems. Bog mats can be turned into access roads or even helicopter landing pads, making it easier to access remote work sites. Bog mats also improve safety conditions for workers and eliminate the risk of breaking or damaging expensive equipment. In short, if you need to build a temporary road or want a sturdy work surface, bog mats are exactly what you’re looking for.
