Environmental Matting for Safe and Secure Work Areas

Over wetlands, through deep forests, and across steep slopes, utility and infrastructure projects often contend with rough, rugged terrain. Environmental matting ensures safe, stable work sites and access roads for work crews, while also protecting local habitats and wildlife from damage. Riggs Distler’s matting team specializes in taming tough landscapes for our clients so that their projects can proceed.

Protect your Project with Environmental Matting from Riggs Distler

Maintaining safe access and work areas for employees is a key concern for our clients, but environmental matting also helps to mitigate environmental concerns and compliance issues. Matting reduces a project’s environmental footprint by preventing contamination, spills, erosion, and other degradation that may require clean-up or restoration. Protecting against these factors, especially in sensitive natural areas, can result in significant time and cost savings on your project. 

Our environmental matting team designs site-specific solutions and mobilizes quickly to keep projects on schedule. With a massive inventory of matting and a fleet of delivery vehicles, we’re ready to roll whenever our clients need us. Riggs Distler offers:
