Rig Mat Cores

CrossLam® CLT rig mat core is the next generation of rig mats. Using CLT panels, the internal steel system required for 3 / 4 beam mats is replaced or greatly reduced. CrossLam® CLT core offers substantial increases in strength and reduces the life-cycle cost of rig mats due to its strength-to-weight ratio advantages. CrossLam® CLT solves the challenges faced when moving walking rigs and ensuring safe working pads. Our rig mat core is the only timber mat that can offer load ratings that are equal to the requirements of today’s drilling operations.

A 4” CLT rig mat replaces a 6” conventional rig mat and provides 50% less weight and 25% more product per truckload.

Structurlam can supply a CrossLam® CLT core for your own rig mat designs. Contact us for more information.

Working with Structurlam to make sure that the mass timber structure was executed smoothly was great. The communication during the shop drawing process was very professional and collaborative.
