There are many reasons why pedestrian walkways may need to be installed at a site. It could be that an access path is required at the roadside for staff carrying out work on stretches of motorway, or a footpath linking the showground to the car park at an equine event.
Each situation and environment demands a different ground protection solution, dependant on time constraints and whether the solution is to be temporary or permanent. At Groundtrax we have a range of ground reinforcement products that are designed to meet every pedestrian walkway requirement.
Where time is of the essence and a walkway is required in a hurry, GroundProtecta Anchored ground reinforcement tiles offer quick and easy installation. The tiles can be installed on soil or grassed areas with or without sub-base and have special openings which serve to provide effective drainage. GroundProtecta can be used as a temporary walkway or as a permanent solution; with grass intertwining with the reinforcement tile the longer it is in situ.
Well Drained Ground
If ground is well drained but the grass surface requires some protection, GrassProtecta is a great option for footpaths and walkways. This cost effective ground reinforcement mesh can be laid quickly and will not usually require any excavation or soil removal. The green mesh blends with the grass sward over time, to provide a discreet pedestrian footpath that offers superb slip resistance.
Where the ground is naturally quite wet and a sub-base is required, TruckPave heavy-duty porous plastic pavers can be utilised. The cellular paving can be filled with gravel or topsoil and grass seed for the desired aesthetic; offering a permanent footpath that can handle high levels of pedestrian traffic.
