Temporary walkway mats (also called track way mats) are specifically designed with the main aim of providing safe access across a site for people on foot.

Where are temporary walkways used?
Walkway mats are commonly used as a temporary access solution in areas where public access is required. They are perfect for pedestrian access across any site where people will be travelling on foot such as:
- Construction sites
- Car parks
What are the features of a temporary walkway mat?
To help comply with health and safety regulations, our temporary walkway mats are made with anti-slip treads to reduce the risk of accidents or injuries to either to an employee, external contractor or a member of the public passing through your site, especially in wet and windy conditions.
- Hard wearing
- Size: 1.2m x 2.4m
The system used on these mats is commonly known as the Ground Mat system. They are installed using double and single joiners, which enables the mats to be linked together to form a safe stable walkway or roadway.
The lightweight mats are easy to manoeuvre meaning the time it takes for them to be set-up and put in place is much less than any other form of walkway.
In addition, the material of the mats is very hard wearing.
Although most commonly used for pedestrian access, our ground mat system can accommodate rubber tracked and wheeled plant.
Sectors that use temporary walkways
With temporary walkway mats to hire, there’s no reason why any sector shouldn’t make good use of them to provide temporary protection for exposed ground and a safe place for pedestrians to walk.
If you regularly need pedestrian trackway mats, consider investing in some of our temporary walkways for sale at competitive prices, and you’ll always have a stack close at hand.
Some of the sectors that have an ongoing need for pedestrian walkway mats include:
- Concert facilities
- Construction sites
- Festivals, fairs and fetes
- Other outdoor events
- Tidal and coastal work
As with all of our categories of timber mats, we have a variety of sizes, thicknesses and timber species to choose from, and would be happy to help you decide on the best fit for your needs.
Combined temporary pathways and roadways
What about sites with only a single access point or where it is desirable to route pedestrian and vehicular traffic along roughly the same track?
That’s not a problem – our heavy duty temporary pathways can be suitable for light vehicles too, including both tyres and tracks, while an alternative option is to use our temporary roadways to establish a single trackway wide enough for both foot traffic and vehicles.
However, where it is possible to have separate roadways and pathways, it is almost always safer to do so as a way to demarcate the different routes.
Remember, because our mats are designed for easy repositioning with standardised lifting points, they make a versatile and flexible option even if you need to change the position of your temporary pathway as work progresses across the site – so you can always get pedestrians to the active part of the site safely.
To make an enquiry about temporary walkway mats to hire or for sale, on their own or in combination with temporary roadways, crane mats and other products, call your local Timbermat distribution depot today on 08000 12 1231 or fill in our online contact form for a prompt reply from a member of our team.
I wish that every firm that we dealt with were like Timbermat!
