Mine Shaft Guides/Shaft Sets

One of our gold mine projects in Manitoba required all of the interior shaft framing as well as the shaft guides for the elevator. This project was performed and submitted from CAD II drawings provided by the client. PacWest cut, trimmed, framed and drilled all components to the exact specifications on the CAD II program.

Utilizing the highest quality timber and the best pricing we cut, mill and drill to your mine’s specs. Mine shaft guides are dried, bundled and wrapped so they arrive in great condition.

You can rely on PacWest for timely delivery, and quality standards that provide stability and safety in all your mine applications.

Railroad Ties

PacWest is a supplier of both new and used wood railroad ties. These ties are normally Creosote treated however other treatments are available for special usage particularly in environmentally-sensitive areas.

Wood Railroad Ties conform to AREMA specifications and are available in most sizes however 6×8 and 7×9 represent the majority of usage. Both Grade ties and Industrial Grade are available.

Cross-ties are available in:

  • 8′
  • 8’6″
  • 9′
  • 10′

Switch ties are available in lengths up to 28′

New wood railroad ties are available in both hardwood and softwood.

PacWest can also supply Relay Ties that are graded for soundness of wood, lack of splits and crushing in the plate area, creosote retention, and worn holes from spikes, etc.

Exposed Beams

One of the principal uses of timbers is as exposed beams. Although Douglas Fir is often the preferred species, various other softwood species are in demand including Hem-Fir, White Pine, Western Red Cedar, and Lodgepole Pine.

Quality and Strength

Exposed beams represent the best of both worlds: high quality appearance and superior structural integrity. They are produced both kiln dried and unseasoned.

Exposed beams are available in the following:

  • Rough sawn
  • Resawn to a specified size (e.g. ALS surfaced sizes)
  • Surfaced

Crane/Access Mats

Pacific Western offers an array of solid wood crane mats. We use both Hardwood and Softwood species to fabricate the crane mats to customer specifications.

Our mats are employed for crane, bridge, access, road, outrigger, rig mats and transfer applications.

We can custom fabricate crane mats to required lengths and sizes from our mill sources.

Each crane mat is made safer by counter-sinking all hardware ensuring that any bolts are cut flush to the surface of the mat. This attention to detail insures that our mats are safe for all jobsite applications. The sizes of the mats we produce are not limited because of the full compliment of materials available to us. We also have the capability of constructing mats using LVL or laminated lumber to meet engineering requirements.
