Other names for swamp / access mats are fir mats, hybrid mats, road mats and lease mats. Occasionally, the term “rig mats” is incorrectly used; it refers to a different product altogether.

How Large are the Mats?
The most common swamp mats / access mats used in Western Canada are 8í by 14í in dimension. They are constructed by combining three layers of rough sawn oak timber, each measuring 2í x 8í, and are perpendicularly laminated, held together by approximately 200 bolts.
The three timbers on each mat extend on one end leaving a cavity on the other end, allowing adjoining swamp mats to interleave. This feature provides enhanced stability and surface integrity when the mat is placed in the field.
How heavy are the Mats?
An oak swamp mat / access mat can weigh between 2,000 to 3,000 pounds. After field use and when moisture laden, the weight of swamp mats / access mats can exceed 3500 pounds.
Fir matting on the other hand is significantly lighter (1500 to 2000 pounds/ fir mat) and hybrid matting weighs in at 1700 to 2200/per hybrid mat.
How are the Mats Transported?
Swamp matting / access matting is transported in quantity from the manufacturer to the region of deployment by rail, and then transferred to transport trucks for furtherance to specific locations of deployment.
How are the Mats Handled On Site?
When the swamp mats / access mats reach their destination of mobilization, the matting is immediately unloaded, using Rubber Tired Loaders and Excavators. These machines are equipped with grapples specifically designed to handle heavy mats.
When the resource company has completed their work, the swamp matting / access matting is once again loaded on transports for relocation to the next project.
What are Rig Mats?
Rig mats are built with both structural steel and wood, and are typically 8í by 20í, 8í by 30í, or 8í by 40í in dimension. Due to their size, rig mats require crane and winches to move and handle.
By contrast, swamp mats / access mats can be handled by wheel loaders and grapple equipped excavators.
