Organising a fête or public event can sometimes be a bit of a nightmare, especially if it rains and the ground becomes wet and soggy, and in some cases it may force you to even cancel your plans. Fear not because help is at hand in the form of a Trakmat. Yes a Trakmat is a great piece of kit that can be laid on the ground for people and vehicles to walk or drive over which means there is no need for you to cancel your event.
Trakmats have been designed in a way so they are easy to transport, easy to manoeuvre and easy to put together. They can be laid on all types of surfaces, surfaces like grass, stones or gravel, in fact any surface that will deteriorate when it becomes wet. They are easy to lay as they come in small pieces, much like a jigsaw, and you just connect the pieces together with either cable ties or steel connectors.
A Trakmat can be used in a number of different ways from footways and pathways for pedestrians to temporary roads for the traffic to use. They are made from a material that is known as HD Polyethylene and they have a UV inhibitor, which means they will not become brittle the older they get.
If you are using them for vehicles they can withstand up to 30 tonnes in weight which makes them ideal for all different types of usage, especially public events that are held in fields, events like music festivals for instance. Trakmats have been designed to dispel mud and water when cars go over them, and they have been designed so they do not rot or absorb water either.
Trakmats can be hired or they can be bought outright depending on what you need them for. If you are looking to use them at a yearly event it may pay you to hire them from a company nearby, but if you are planning more regular events it may be worthwhile to buy you own as a Trakmat would be a sound and solid investment meaning your events would never be cancelled.
It is essential particularly in the wettest months of the year to use a Trakmat in order to protect the ground from being dug up when using heavy machinery. Ground protection is key or you will end up with the grass chewed up and nothing but a muddy mess.
