Temporary walkway mats are specifically designed with the main aim of providing safe access across a site for people on foot. These types of mats can either be bought or hired out at affordable rates, and rented mats can be returned easily once the job is over and completed, so there is no long-term storage demand either.
Our temporary walkway mats are made with anti-slip treads which are perfect for pedestrian access around construction sites, festivals, shows or anywhere in which they may be needed to provide safe access across a site for people travelling on foot. In locations where public access is required, walkway mats can be particularly useful as a temporary measure. With the material of the mats being very hard wearing and with the anti-slip layer, cases of accidents are limited and they therefore apply to health and safety regulations.
The lightweight mats are easy to maneuver meaning the time it takes for them to be set-up and put in place is much more limited than any other form of walkway. The system in which these mats are installed is commonly known as the Ground Mat system. Using this system, the mats can accommodate rubber tracked and wheeled plant, alongside pedestrians on foot. The temporary walkways are installed using double and single joiners, which enables the mats to be linked together to form a safe stable walkway or roadway.
Other specific design features include a rugged grip, under foot, helping to ensure that pedestrians do not slip or fall, especially in wet and windy conditions. This feature is important when working to comply with health and safety laws in reducing the risk of an incident or injury either to an employee, external contractor or a member of the public passing through your site.
