Using Temporary Access Mats at Your Event


Joshua Fraser

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 considered. Even pedestrian walkways used by a relatively small number of people can cause considerable damage, particularly if the ground is wet or muddy. EuroMat is the leading temporary access mat, with designs for pedestrians and vehicles available. Easy and fast to install, the 100% recycled plastic mats help you to avoid health and safety issues at your event and allow you to create vehicle roadways and pedestrian walkways

where there are none. Optional reflective markings allow for increased safety in the dark for night time events, and the temporary access mat also features a chevron design to create traction for added safety. If your ground conditions are poor you will require a ground protection mat such as EuroMat.

If not, you will still need to entertain the possibility that weather conditions or heavy traffic (pedestrian or vehicular) could transform your ground conditions into poor conditions. The easiest and quickest way to ensure poor conditions do not hinder the success of your event is by making the most of a temporary access mat provider. Ground protection mat providers will discuss the possibility of pedestrian walkways or vehicle access with you, enabling you to find a temporary access mat to suit your needs, whether that is EuroMat or another type of ground protection mat.
