Access the Inaccessible
Much of western Canada’s northern regions are covered with muskeg and swamps, limiting the off-road movement of heavy equipment to the winter months when the ground is frozen. The use of prefabricated matting can extend access into these regions by providing a temporary solid surface over unstable ground conditions for transportation and operation of heavy equipment. Projects can also be interrupted in the summer months by extended periods of rain, making it difficult to move heavy equipment. Roads and work locations that have been surfaced with our mats allow work to continue through these wet periods.
Horizon North manufactures matting for sale or rent and also provides transportation, installation services, storage and client inventory management services. Horizon North’s matting manufacturing facility is located in Grande Prairie, Alberta, with matting operations out of Grande Prairie and Westlock, Alberta.
