Ground Protection & Crowd Control

trackway & crowd control header icon



SignaRoad is a heavy-duty ground protection product, it performs very highly terms of load capacity, protection and safety. Each panel has an interlocking flange system, which means a continuous, seamless surface with no mud splashes or trip hazards. The panels are made of super durable 100% recycled HDPE, which means they don't rot or degrade and are 100% recyclable at end of a long lifespan. They are 3m x 2m in size and weigh 225kg each.

Ground Guards

Ground Guards

Our Ground Guards offer light to medium-duty ground protection for general use. The panels are made of 100% recycled HDPE and are 100% recyclable at end of life, which is typically 10 years. They are 2.4m x 1.2m in size and are relatively lightweight at 39kg each, so are perfect for a 2-person installation. We've also designed a quick-fix connection system which makes for fast and simple joining. We can board out entire unit bases or locations but, are equally happy to supply a small number of boards to protect smaller areas of grass.

Heras Fencing

Heras Fencing

We can drop your heras fencing off for you to install 'in house' or we can do the leg-work for you. The panels are 3.5m in length. We have the ability to deliver 100's of panels at the same time using our 32 tonne Hiab.

Crowd Control Barriers

Crowd Control Barriers

Our crowd control barriers are made of lightweight steel so are heavier duty than plastic pedestrian barriers but not too heavy to handle! Ideal where you need a super-robust barrier solution. The barriers are 2m long.

Pedestrian Barriers

Pedestrian Barriers

Pedestrian Barriers are easy to set out and stack neatly together when not in use. We can deliver up to 30 in a P8 Trailer, meaning you can easily move them around and have somewhere to store them when they are not in use. The barriers are 2m long.

Pedestrian Mats

Pedestrian Mats

Pedestrian mats are similar to a ground guard panel but are 1.2m x 0.8m so much smaller and lighter duty. They are designed for pedestrian traffic and magliners rather than cars and trucks. Like our trackway boards they are made of 100% recycled rubber composite and are 100% recyclable at end of life.
