Car park matting is the solution to protecting the ground from damage in a variety of situations, including heavy traffic, outdoor events and on access routes.

You might not think it, but temporary ground matting can be used in a variety of situations, such as providing stable parking for vehicles or as a safety element for people to walk on. Here are three uses for temporary ground matting, and why they’re so important.

Temporary car parks

Having available space for vehicles to park is important, and if as a company you aren’t able to offer permanent parking for people, temporary car park matting may be just the solution. Ranging from plastic grids to permeable paving, ground mats are engineered to help stabilise and protected the ground beneath from any wear and tear.

Car park matting is also designed to help improve water drainage and prevent erosion, providing an environmentally sustainable alternative to asphalt or concrete paving!

Events

Euro MatsYou may have seen matting and ground protection boards at outdoor events. They’re designed to help guests have a safe ground to walk on, as well as providing protection to the ground beneath. Large outdoor events require flooring to prevent ground erosion from extra footfall or traffic. The matts provide protection and reinforcement to the ground, and reducing the risk of ground saturation, slippage and erosion.

Matting protection boards are quick and easy to install and take up, making the process smooth and simple!

Access routes

Providing ground protection around access routes, for both pedestrians and vehicles, is important if you want to keep the ground beneath healthy and undamaged. Access routes are needed in a variety of scenarios, including providing protection for golf courses, emergency vehicle access to events and pedestrian access routes to car parks.

If ground surfaces were unstable, emergency vehicles, such as ambulances and fire engines, would have trouble accessing restricted or hard to access areas, which is why ground matts are so important.
