Product Specifications

At Northern Mat & Bridge we believe in continuous improvement and quality. Having our own manufacturing facilities ensures that you get the highest quality mat, every time. Features common to all of our access mats include:

  • Dimensions – 8’ x 14’ x ~5 1/4"
  • 3 ply configuration with solid core centre for maximum strength and flexibility
  • Premium grade lumber (No.2 or better)
  • Precise placement of carriage bolts ensures structural integrity
  • 12” Finger-joint system interconnects mats from end to end, ensuring consistent weight distribution & connectivity


Fir Access Mat

Durable & Lightweight

Constructed with No.2 grade or better Canadian Fir, the Douglas Fir Access Mat is our most lightweight mat. We choose Douglas Fir because the straight grain of the lumber, results in the mat being hard and quite dense for a softwood. These characteristics give the mats an excellent strength to weight ratio, resulting in a durable yet lightweight product. The Fir Mat is typically 30-50% lighter than our premium oak mats; therefore you can expect to see a 30-50% decrease in your transportation costs.


FirLite Hybrid Access Mat

Consumer #1 Choice

A FirLite Hybrid access mat is a cross between our Douglas Fir & Oak Mats. It is by far our most popular choice for access mat rentals. This mat has the same design and craftsmanship of the fir access mat; however, the 4 outer boards of the mat have been replaced with 100% premium Oak.  As such, they have a longer lifespan and are used for a majority of our matting projects.


Three-Ply Bolted Oak Mat

Strong & Resilient

100% premium oak and Mixed Hardwood mats are known for being the strongest and heaviest products available for your project.
