Strength-Adjusted

Updated: Sep 1


Need an alternative to a mixed hardwood mat that is more affordable and just as strong?


Summary: Using a strength-adjusted mat you can increase quality and decrease cost. Save between $35-$80 per mat. For some 12”applications you may save 50%, substituting one 12” Eucalyptus for two mixed hardwood mats.

Specific solution:

  1. Estimate the strength of mat you really need. Often, bending strength (Fb)will be most important factor, followed by shear (Fv). Eucalyptus is 43% stronger in bending strength and 32% stronger in shear than mixed hardwoods.

  2. Consider the following table to compare your options:
