“Established in 1992, Timbermat has successfully grown into one of the UK’s largest independent suppliers of temporary roadways and ground protection solutions.”
Based out of Manchester, with depots in London & Edinburgh, our expertise and knowledge within this industry has helped us to achieve a national customer base boasting nearly all of the country’s top civil engineering and construction companies. Our ground protection mats or bog mats have been tested and approved by both the Utilities and Rail industries through the UVDB and Link Up Supply chain network.
Our extensive stock allows us to provide every customer with the right product for their particular requirements. Whether it be for a one tonne excavator or a 250 tonne crane, we have a mat to meet your specifications.
“We can usually have mats on site the same day, or within twenty four hours of the enquiry!”
Made from tough tropical hardwoods, our ground protection mats are capable of carrying the heaviest plant safely across treacherous ground conditions – but can also be utilised to protect hard standing surfaces such as roads and paved areas.
We can also offer to our customers a ground protection mat installation service. This consists of hiab mounted vehicles operated by qualified staff.
A complete design package, risk assessment and method statements are provided, and all works are carried out to comply with current health and safety regulations and any site rules provided by the customer.
To complete our service we have a long-standing business relationship with a national haulage contractor, this allows us to respond to urgent requirements and means we can usually have ground protection mats on site the same day, or within twenty-four hours of the enquiry.
