This German based company produces wooden mats of any size using a selection of wood from Oak, Softwood to tropical hardwoods. They boast a wide portfolio and have an extensive stock pile available for prompt delivery ensuring all projects commence on time.


The use of Mora and Wamara

In most of their tropical wood mats KO-MATS use Mora and Wamara 'Iron wood' as these species boast a good wear and tear reputation. They are naturally hard with an interlocked grain which gives them elasticity, a necessity for all strong mats.


Mat specifications

All tropical mats have 2 pick holes for easy transportation and movement. All bolts, washers and nuts are countersunk. Mats with a thickness of 150 mm or more are standard with solid boxed hearts. The short end of all mats over 150 mm in thickness are reinforced with nail plates, these ends along with the nuts/bolts are then protected against rust by a special coating. The 150 mm and over mats are chamfered on all sides, meaning they can be used on both sides. Depending on the thickness of the mats 16, 19, 24 or 30mm bolts are used, along with strong washers and nuts which can be individually adjusted.


Ekki and Guyana wood based mats

All KO-MATS mats sized 70/100/150/200/250/300 mm in thickness and up to 11.8 meres in length are made from Ekki wood, an African species known for its strength. Species from Guyana outperform African wood in some areas, but have been found to be weaker in others, KO-MATS have found that tropical timber has the best wear and tear reputation and are suitable in severe conditions.
