What are Swamp Mats?

Swamp mats are a type of access mat that has a more region or location-based name. However, just like typical access mats, they serve multiple purposes. First, swamp mats provide a stable foundation for your project’s crew and equipment. Second, they provide a layer of protection for the environment, as they are a physical barrier between the ground below and the machinery above. Swamps, muskeg, and other ecosystems are highly-sensitive, and the less your project disturbs them, the better off everyone is. By utilizing swamp mats, you’ll spend less time on reclamation after your project is complete and will ensure that your worksite is safe and accessible.

Vortex’s Access Solutions

At Vortex, our swamp mats are manufactured in-house at our facility in Peace Country. Each of our swamp mats is made using only high-quality materials like Douglas fir, pine, and spruce and a unique bolt pattern. Our access mats have a 192-bolt pattern, which is the most out of any major manufacturer. In addition, during manufacturing, Vortex utilizes horizontal and vertical compression to ensure our mats have incredible strength and durability. Vortex’s swamp mats, in particular, have been engineered to resist warping, diamonding, and structural failures that could otherwise cause damage to the environment, your crew, or equipment. The gapless tops and cores in our swamp mats provide maximum shear strength and load capacity while minimizing the chance of cross-contamination. Our high-performance swamp mats are designed to save you time and money no matter the challenging terrain or environments you may encounter.
