Every project is unique, which is why we offer four core products that are designed to meet a wide variety of needs:
In this series, we take a closer at each of them outlining the key features, benefits, common uses, and environmental aspects of each one, starting with TerraTrak Plus.
TerraTrak Plus – Ground Protection For Events And Gatherings
TerraTrak plus is a single-solution, heavy-duty flooring system that is designed to protect the ground before, during, and after large-scale events. It is used worldwide to conserve natural or synthetic turf and is the best system available for protecting parks, stadiums, and arena surfaces.
Key features of TerraTrak Plus
TerraTrak plus has a distinct overlapping design and locking system that provides an uninterrupted and gap-free walkway for workers and patrons alike. Its slip-resistant heavy flooring is pedestrian-friendly, reducing the risk of falls and injuries.
This makes it particularly suitable for public events with heavy footfall, such as concerts, festivals, matches and fairs.
It allows heavy machinery such as cranes, forklifts and tractors to move quickly and safely through the grounds for the crucial load-in and load-out stages of an event, all while preventing damage to the underlying pitch.
Where can it be used?
TerraTrak plus is a versatile flooring solution that can be used for any type of public event where ease of access and protection of the ground is important.
Some of the most common uses include:
- Sports grounds
- College grounds
Ground Protection Ireland has deployed TerraTrak plus at Croke Park, the Aviva Stadium, Thomond Park and the Big Grill Festival at Herbert Park, perfectly preserving the turf in each location for the duration of its use.
How TerraTrak plus works
TerraTrak plus can be installed by hand with minimal hassle and no need for any tools. Because the panels are assembled in pairs, two workers can cover an area of 2.42㎡ (26ft2) with each panel.
The panels are connected by vertical cam-locks that are comprised of a special type of nylon. It is as strong as steel but will not bend or rust, thus creating the strongest possible connection between panels.
Grass can easily be damaged by inferior materials that do not allow air to circulate. The translucent HDPE plastic panels of TerraTrak plus are permeable to light, water and air so the grass will continue to grow, even when covered for several consecutive days. This ensures that the grass looks as healthy as it did before the event.
