Technical Information


DAWSON-WAM stock hundreds of heavy-duty steel access mats. The mats are 6.5 metres long by 2.5 metres wide and 0.3 metres deep, and weigh 5.5 tonnes each. They are capable of withstanding the heaviest loads on any surface and can carry construction traffic such as rubber tyred or tracked excavators, cranes and piling rigs. These mats enable the loads to be distributed over a much larger area.

Steel Mat Dimensions

Each mat is made from eight 6.5m long 305 x 305 x 97 S355 UCs, fully welded along each flange and enclosed with 10mm plate.
