Carry on Camping with Ground Protection Mats

The British summer is notorious for not being very summer like, but that doesn't stop millions of us still choosing to holiday in our own country. Of course there many wonderful places to visit up and down the UK and caravanning and camping have always been great ways of getting up close and personal with the British countryside.

However, because of that unpredictable weather, many of our camp sites and caravan sites can be turned into quagmires during holiday season and make for a very unpleasant, wet and muddy experience. Well, for camp site owners and individual caravan holidaymakers, perhaps the ground protection mats supplied by Ground Access Hire may prove to be an ideal solution and help to prevent your summer holiday from becoming a wash out.

The mats themselves are relatively lightweight, yet extremely strong and durable. They are easy to slot together and assemble which means customers can easily assemble them themselves if need be. If you require members of the Ground Access Hire to do the assembly, this is also an option. They could be used for temporary walkways and temporary car parks within the camp site or in other areas that might be at risk from turning into a mud bath.

Please see our main website for more details.

Size Doesn’t Matter - Ground Protection for Events Large and Small

You heard it here first...size doesn't matter, at least not when it comes to the size of your summer event or festival and your need for protecting the ground with our ground protection mats. If you are having a small village fete and expect just a trickle of visitors, a fancy wedding on a back field or a concert/music festival in which thousands might be in attendance, our team of professionals are well equipped to deal with any occasion.

We are about at that time of year, when music festivals up and down the country are either about to get under way or are in the final planning stages. There is usually a little something for every musical taste, with plenty to please the mainstream pop and rock fans as well as quirkier, alternative offerings.

For those of you who have been to a music festival, regardless of its size, your experience may first of all be dictated by the weather. If the heavens open, the bottom line is you are going to get wet, but if there are ground protection mats positioned in the most crucial areas of the site, then a mud bath can be avoided.

We have all seen images on our TV screens of completely drenched music lovers up to their ears in mud at major music festivals and it’s quite clear that in these particular areas ground protection mats have not been employed.

Although we are more than happy to tackle larger events here at Ground Access Hire, we are also perfectly set up to cater for smaller events. Things like car boot sales, markets and sports days can all benefit from the firm footing that the mats provide. If the event needs an area for car parking, this too is perfect for protection mats, with them protecting the ground from all of those heavy wheels and vehicles.

Another perfect use for the mats is to create temporary roadways or pathways for events held on the beach, perhaps a wedding reception or other beach event. The mats make it much easier for both vehicles and people to make their way across the sand to where the actual event is being staged.

If you are planning an event and are considering the use of protection mats, please feel free to contact us via our main website and we can certainly provide you with good advice and point you in the right direction.
