Robinsons Scotland Ltd - Lockerbie
As a supplier of Wooden Timber Mats we were recently involved in another high profile project in Scotland. One of our customers had a requirement to provide a cost effective and suitable solution that would provide regular access and working pad for heavy plant and machinery whilst the construction of a new facility was completed. The system needed to withstand heavy weights and have the ability to withstand all weather conditions and very soft ground.
A large number of Wooden Timber Mats were supplied to the customer. The mats are easy to handle with a heavy duty forklift and can be installed using a lifting chain. The rigid nature of Wooden Timber Mats provided an excellent solution for the customer, enabling all plant and machinery to complete work on site even when ground conditions became wet and boggy.
Our Heavy Duty Hardwood Bog Mats are manufactured from European Hardwood, which is both durable and hardwearing when used as a temporary roadway application in all fields of the construction industry.
Bog Mats are used to provide access for both rubber and tracked vehicles to areas with difficult ground conditions, often on wet ground or where the tracks of a vehicle might damage the grass, car park or paths below. They are also used to reduce axle weight pressures and reduce the risk of damage where access is required over underground services.

As they’re reusable, they are environmentally friendly and cause minimum ground disturbance. All of our Hardwood Bogmats are sourced from contracted sawmills in Europe which respect National Forest Management Plans.
Our mats are produced to a very high standard using 5 x 200mm beams, and depending on the size of the mat, 18mm to 24mm bolts, all countersunk with strong washers and nuts to give a smooth finish. They come complete with 2 lifting bolts/eyes as standard.
