Western Canada boasts some of the harshest terrains in the world, from subarctic terrain to swamp, muskeg, and other challenging conditions. If your organization needs access mats to reach a remote worksite, you need to ensure they’re up to the task. Inferior access solutions can lead to equipment damage, environmental destruction (and expensive remediation!), and even safety hazards for your workers. On the other hand, a strong, reliable access mat can add value to any project by getting your equipment and workers wherever they need to be, both safely and efficiently.

Vortex Energy Services is committed to providing strong, safe and reliable access mats for projects of all sizes and scopes. Available for sale or rental, our 3-ply access mats are engineered and manufactured to provide superior performance, even on challenging Western Canadian terrain. Read on to learn more about how Vortex access mats provide superior performance, as well as our complete range of solutions and services for heavy industry.

Engineered for Performance

Vortex 3-ply access mats are designed and manufactured in the heart of Peace Country, AB, using the highest quality available today. Our mats are constructed using either 3-ply Douglas fir or our premium fibre blend (fir, pine, and spruce), allowing us to provide value-adding access solutions that meet every technical and budget requirement.

All Vortex access mats are manufactured under compression technology, resulting in a true gapless top and middle layer. These solid layers provide maximum shear strength and loading capacity while giving noxious weeds and other contaminants nowhere to hide. A gapped bottom layer ensures maximum strength and stability, even on the most challenging terrain Western Canada has to offer.

Vortex mats also feature a unique 192-bolt pattern, the most bolts used by any major matting supplier. Combined with compression construction, the 192-bolt pattern makes Vortex mats some of the strongest and most durable in the industry today. Finally, all Vortex mats feature routered outside edges to minimize wear and tear in transportation, installation, and use.
