At Global Mat, our mats are made from the finest materials, including furniture-grade oak and other hardwoods, steel fasteners and bolts, assembled in our field-proven, patented configuration. They’re designed for rigorous industrial applications and the most brutal conditions. When you need to gain access to difficult terrain or protected geography, Global mats are the preferred choice because we start with the best lumber available and build them by hand. This is important in that it is required to visually inspect each timber and orientate the timber’s grain, checks and knots correctly to maximize and enhance the natural strength of southern oak. And as one of the largest lumber buyers in the U.S., we maintain special relationships with dozens of mills, insuring an uninterrupted supply of hardwood timber resulting in the largest shelf inventory of mats in the industry. The best mats are made from the best hardwood, it’s that simple; and we don’t cut corners on the quality of our mats.



Our manufacturing process, like our patented designs, is industry leading. We invest in the highest quality materials in the assembly of our matting products. Beginning with the finest, strongest hardwoods available, we assemble each mat carefully and consistently so that it will last under extreme applications. Our fasteners are supplied exclusively by Duofast and are special ordered for our process. All of our mats are given extra attention during the assembly process so that the boards and timbers remain tightly bound for the lifespan of the mat. With special jigs and racks, our team of trained assemblers will flip and rotate each mat to install a predetermined pattern of nails, rods or bolts. This ensures the strongest mat possible that will outlast any other competing product due to our stringent manufacturing technique.



We use the most productive and economical intermodal means available to deliver mats to your project. Whether transported by truck, rail, ship, or barge, be assured that the mats will arrive on time and in excellent condition to the work site. We are accustomed to large volumes, so we can serve any customer, no matter how large or small or how far the project is – we can deliver.

  • Trenching
  • Marine Activities – When you’re transporting something heavy that’s made of steel on a barge with a steel surface, a wooden mat will prevent the steel surfaces from touching, and reduce slipping.
