The Most Durable Access Mats in Edmonton, Calgary, and all of Northern Alberta

MaXXiMaT’s access mats— also known in the field as “swamp mats”—are redefining industry mat standards for quality.

We supply our swamp mats in Edmonton, Calgary, and surrounding areas. Our access mats are designed to minimize ground disturbance and maintain the balance of sensitive systems surrounding your worksite. We understand the importance of improving and extending productivity in challenging climates and have engineered our mats to withstand the toughest conditions.

Swamp Mats for Alberta’s Unique Terrain

Providing sustainable access and worksite solutions for Alberta’s robust energy industry is at the heart of what we do. We know the challenges you face, and the term ‘swamp mat’ is an apt one. The muskeg conditions found in large portions of Alberta’s land mass, particularly in the north, create swamp-like conditions, making access to and working in these high water-table areas difficult. Our swamp mats are uniquely designed to solve these issues while minimizing surface disturbance.

Using MaXXiMaT’s best-in-class access mats, made in and for Alberta, will give you the traction and work surface you need to ensure the safety of your workforce and provide solid, trouble-free stability for your equipment, whether it be trucks, excavators, cranes, or any other heavy equipment. At the same time, the sensitive ecosystems in which you operate must be protected. We work hard to create appropriate, sustainable matting solutions to meet the needs of each project, while ensuring that the environmental impact is minimized. Our swamp mats are the smart choice for use in accessing Alberta’s wetlands and other environmentally-sensitive regions.
