At events there are many ways that you can protect a floor from guests and the guests from themselves. Mats provide the comfort, Geogrid provides the stability for the ground, and cable protection hides away cables that are unsightly and a health and safety concern. Companies such as
The Floorbox are providing temporary solutions to event organizers. In some cases, permanent solutions, where events happen more regularly.
Mats and Flooring
Heavy duty mats and flooring are an important consideration when large numbers of guests are passing over a floor. Sections can easily be fitted together to make one large seamless area that nobody is going to trip up over, unless that is what they do anyway. Firms will come and fit the
flooring for event organizers and party hosts. This takes away the worry of this aspect of putting on an event. The surface that we walk on is important for our comfort and safety. In outdoor situations, mats and heavy-duty flooring are the solution.
Disco floors and exhibition carpets can be used. It can depend on the event what type of flooring is most suitable. Online firms can provide flooring to suit all situations or occasions. It will all come in pieces for easy transportation and be able to be constructed quickly, so there is no need to have it in place for a long period of time beforehand. This will reduce the costs of hiring it.
In terms of location, it is necessary to look for flat outdoor spaces to situate an event. It makes flooring possible and results in a more pleasing floor to walk on. The elderly, particularly, like to walk on surfaces that are flat. This is because they are more prone to tripping, and if they do, they are
more likely to sustain injury because of the brittle bones of old age. Everyone need to be considered at an event, from young to old. Children will want to run around, and it is hard to stop them, so it is important that a floor is not going to trip them up or injure them. Softer flooring solutions are available where children are concerned. Hard flooring is available where it is required to be more durable.
Sometimes, outdoors, the ground needs reinforcing. Soil gives way in bad weather. A boggy ground can be dealt with by using Geogrid. This will stabilize the ground, protecting the ground from harm and making for a flatter and more stable surface for those walking on it. Everyone attending an event will thank its organisers for it. Geogrid is fitted in no time at all and something that landowners will appreciate when they want their land returned to them in the condition it started when they agreed the event organizers could use it. It avoids compensation when no longer-term damage is done to the land because of protecting it. Geogrid is good for the environment, too.
Cables, apart from being unsightly, represent a health and safety risk. People, guests, visitors, can trip up over them and hurt themselves. This can result in compensation being claimed, which, although insured for, will result in greater insurance premiums the following year for an event to
fund. So, the answer is to fit all cables inside a heavy-duty cable protector and lay them across the floor in a way that can be walked over. There is no getting around the fact that events will have sound systems producing the entertainment for guests and visitors, and so will have the cables to
deal with. In the longer term, cable protectors can be used where electrical equipment is remaining in place for longer periods.
In summary, the flooring at events can be improved by having the right mats for a specific event,
taking account of the quality of the ground, and reinforcing it with Geogrid where necessary, and by
not overlooking cables. Instead, making sure that they are housed within protection that means they
cannot be damaged, and nobody can trip up over them and injure themselves.
