What Makes Us Different?

At Ground Protection Ireland, we aim to push the boundaries of product quality, service delivery and customer support to new heights.

'Planning to Completion" Service

At Ground Protection Ireland, we provide a comprehensive service from ‘planning to completion’.

We supply, deliver, install, and then recover temporary access solutions nationwide, along with offering project management, design, and health and safety guidance.

In-House Solutions

Ground Protection Ireland does not rely on third-party suppliers.

All of our access solutions, mats and trackways are stored at our headquarters, so our supply chain is not subject to delays or shortages and our clients can buy directly from us.

24/7, Nationwide Service

We offer a 24/7 service to every county in Ireland complete with delivery and installation crews who are on the road full time, operating specialised company-owned vehicles.

This means we can respond to the requests of our customers immediately, no matter when, where or how urgent it is.

Free Onsite Surveys

We offer a free onsite survey to all our customers.

Our project managers will visit the client’s location to find out exactly what they need and to help us create a tailormade solution.

Our clients also receive ongoing support– pre and post-delivery – from both our in-house design staff and our health and safety team.
