Poorly supported pipeline are a serious hazard. Not only can they wreck your project, but they can also cause serious energy or even death. That’s why Select Mat offers pipeline skids in addition to construction mats.
Pipe skids are useful for cribbing, racking, and elevating oil pipeline. We sell full sawn pipeline skids to support your pipeline and make your project safer, easier and more efficient. We can meet small orders or fulfill orders of over 100,000 skids.
Mats Per Truckload
All of Select Mat’s pipeline skids are hardwood, full sawn skids that come in the standard size of 4″x6″x4′. A full truckload consists of 14 bundles of 82 pipeline skids totaling 1148 skids per truck.
We recommend buying full sawn skids for the consistency and reliability of the cut. When you are installing your skids and laying them one on top of the other, even an inch of difference in the cut of one skid could make your set up significantly less stable. In other words, even small differences in the cut or dimensions of skids for pipeline cones can create a safety liability.
Full sawn skids are cut in the exact same dimensions each time, so freight capacity is always predictable.
Pipeline cones serve the same function as hardwood and timber skids. However, they are made from composite material rather than wood. Pipe cones can offer significant cost savings over skids due to their much lighter weight, which will save you money on freight expenses.
Moreover, one person can load a pipeline cone, which increases the ease of installation. They also come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so they can meet the needs of your project. Additionally, they have a higher rate of reusability due to their composition. Cones for pipeline are made from composite material, so you don’t have to worry about them rotting or cracking.
While both products are proven and reliable choices for your pipeline project, pipeline cones offer significant advantages over pipeline skids. These include but are not limited to:
One person can load a pipeline cone, which makes installation easier. Not only that, but it can save your project significant freight costs.
Cones are made of composite material. In other words, they don’t absorb contaminants, they can be easily cleaned, and they don’t rot.
Pipe skids and pipe cones are both more than sturdy enough to support pipeline or on the job site. However, because they are made from composite material, pipeline cones aren’t susceptible to rotting.
Unlike pipeline skids which come in a standard size that generally fits all pipe sizes, pipeline cones need to come in a shape that conforms to the specific pipeline being used. That said, pipeline cones come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to match the different shapes and sizes of pipes. So don’t worry about whether or not there’s a cone for you, because there probably is.

Select Mat does not sell used pipeline skids. We believe that they are not worth the potential safety risk to our customers.
With used hardwood skids, the lifespan is going to be shorter. Not only that, but using used skids for a pipeline means that there is the possibility of using rotted or cracked wood to support your pipe. The integrity could be compromised without you being aware. This could create a danger to your project workers who will be working underneath and around your oil pipeline.
