emtek® Runner System Increases Efficiencies And Reduces Costs 35%

December 27, 2010

After a late November thunderstorm spawned a half mile wide tornado that touched down in Loves Park, Illinois, NEW SOUTH Equipment Mats received a phone call from ComEd to provide access for crews scrambling to repair damaged transmission lines responsible for supplying thousands of customers with power. After surveying the job site and determining the project's needs, NEW SOUTH Equipment Mats was able to design a temporary roadway using a runner system with emtek® mats, the only mat that has engineered certified load ratings. The runner system was able to reduce the amount of mats needed, dramatically cutting down the amount of freight costs involved, which led to a reduction in costs over 35% compared to using traditional matting and techniques.
