How Trak Mats Can Aid Developers

Many towns and cities are seeing an increase in construction. Big developments such as supermarkets, out-of-town retail parks and housing developments are springing up across the country. Industry experts surmise that the growth may highlight that the UK is finally out of recession.

However, with re-development comes mess and concerns for structures already in place. Popular in the construction industry at the moment is the need for ground protection mats. Not only do they protect the ground underneath but they also provide a safe and secure roadway for construction vehicles.

The temporary ground protection panels are often used for safeguarding existing block-work, tarmac or grassed areas from heavy loads and machinery whilst enabling an easy site route for vehicles and plant hire.
The easy to use mats can be taken away quickly at the end of development with the minimum of fuss and no damage to the ground underneath.

The use of these mats will save money as there will be no damage to carry out from heavy tools and machinery. The only equipment required to tighten the bolts on these mats is an Impact Driver and a 14mm socket.

There are many benefits to using Ground Access Hire's boards. TrakMats are;

·         Lightweight, only 33kgs
·         Easy to handle 
·         Constructed from durable HD Polyethylene renowned for being a tough material.

·         Connected together easily and joined using Urethane connectors and bolts.

A Temporary Car Park Can Make a Permanent Difference

If you have ever hosted an event that required the use of your lawn for extra car parking, you are probably fully aware of the terrible damage that can be caused from just a few cars rolling across your pristine lawn. With summer finally under way, it’s quite possible that many of us are planning and preparing a whole host of events to be staged on our own land or property, from simple barbeques to glamorous wedding receptions.

Of course, here in the UK, the summer doesn't always (ever?) equate to good, dry weather. So, the chances are that even if the sun is shining, the ground will still be moist underfoot and you are having nightmares about those extra cars that need to park on your lawn or patch of land to avoid blocking the road.

There is a simple solution and its comes in the form of ground protection mats. They are made from HD Polyethylene which are light and hard wearing and are perfect for creating temporary car parks. The mats also have a non-slip surface, so even if there is some wet weather, it will help to prevent tyres from slipping.

Very easy to assemble and put down and just as simple to remove, they can be put into place shortly before the event and removed shortly after with the minimum of fuss.
