Organising an event is a demanding process. Whether you are organising a sports, leisure or music event, or a conference, convention, festival, performance or competition, one of your priorities is going to be managing your venue for the number of visitors you are expecting. You may have already considered seating, car parking and facilities, but it is highly likely that you will have (literally) overlooked a key role of events management; ground protection. Can your current venue handle the pedestrian and vehicle traffic which you are expecting?
The chances are if any area of your venue, car parking or walkways is going to be based on bare ground surfaces such as grass, mud or gravel, you are likely to need to use temporary access mats. Protecting the venue is key to your events success. Not just to avoid damage to the venue resulting in fines from venue owners, but to prevent cars becoming stuck in the mud, creating emergency access routes, keeping pedestrian routes safe by reducing slips and falls, and allowing access for professional machinery or media vehicles.
A failure to provide appropriate pedestrian walkways or vehicle roadways can lead to a complete disaster. Ground protection mats such as EuroMat® offer a safe and effective way to provide temporary access at you event. Heavy duty mats such as these are ideal for events co-ordinators because they are multi-purpose, providing a simple way to protect the ground from pedestrians or vehicles. The plastic mats interlock together to create ground coverage for whatever size and shape of pedestrian walkways, car park or roadways your event will require, and are simply lifted up and transported away after your event.
Temporary access mats are required at music festivals and outdoor performances. But they are often essential at conferences, sporting events (golf and football grasses must be protected), and fairs and small town shows too. Small events often require a greater deal of ground protection than first…
