The Emtek® Wetlands Access System from New South
With the EarthSafe® revolutionary new approach, no materials penetrate into the wetlands themselves. It's the very first system in which the mats simply float on the vegetative layer, making it the only environmentally sound way to access protected areas. The emtek® mats used by EarthSafe® are designed to work with wetlands rather than against them, and do not block normal water flow. Rather, they simply move with the water as the level rises and falls.
ENGINEERED FOR MINIMUM IMPACT, MAXIMUM BENEFIT
Since the mats exert little downward pressure (approximately 3.5 psi), there's minimal environmental impact as they're placed or removed. Even when mats are fully loaded with equipment weighing hundreds of thousands of pounds, the downward depression into the surface is only inches deep rather than far below. And, the emtek® system uses just a fraction of the mats normally needed.
Built smarter from the ground up.
New South starts each project by taking your exact design criteria, carefully analyzing the wetlands, and then determining what needs to be built to support that particular load factor. Every mat is RFD-tagged so it can be easily tracked by GPS. Using only low-ground-pressure, tracked equipment in installing and removing the Emtek® Wetlands System, our logistics team builds the project as we move through the site, never having a piece of equipment enter the wetland area. Also, rather than you having to buy mats, New South can provide and install them for you at the designated location. Compared to traditional timber matting, EarthSafe® can often help to reduce project costs.
Assurance that every mat is accounted for.
Keeping track of every mat is vitally important in environmentally protected areas. That's why each one is equipped with a radio frequency tag and a designated GPS location. Once mats are in place, we scan them into a computer program, taking inventory of every mat and its precise location. Then, when the mats are picked up, they're rescanned to ensure that we find and account for every single one. After all, you never leave a mat behind.
Designed so that your footprint was almost never there.
As for the wetlands areas themselves, our specially trained site crews and eco-sensitive equipment work to provide the
least amount of site disruption possible. Overall, the EarthSafe® approach dramatically shortens recovery time, enabling protected areas to return to their formal beauty just as nature intended. We'll be happy to evaluate your
