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, dependent 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.
GrassProtecta – Grass Reinforcement Mesh
GrassProtecta grass reinforcement mesh is a heavy duty thick slip resistant polyethylene plastic mesh grid for reinforcing and protecting grassed surfaces prone to wear, rutting and smearing which can result in a muddy surface incapable of withstanding vehicular or pedestrian traffic applications. GrassProtecta is a great solution for low to medium traffic areas and where the ground is free-draining. Simply roll out across the area and pin down with our Steel U-Pins or if you prefer, you can use our plastic GRM Pegs.
CellPave™ AP – No-Dig Ground Reinforcement Solution
CellPave™ AP from Groundtrax is a ‘no-dig’ anchored ground reinforcement paving tile. It is installed quickly and easily and it provides a cost-effective way of reinforcing existing grassed areas without the need for a sub-base. It is used extensively for car parking and to reinforce grassed areas for walkways and other pedestrian areas. The grids are a much stronger alternative to roll out meshes that are pinned into place as the grids themselves are vibrated into the ground with a vibratory roller.
CellPave™ 40 – Plastic Cellular Paving Grid
CellPave™ 40 grass and gravel pavers are a cellular paving grid system for grass and ground reinforcement applications where there is regular vehicle or pedestrian use. CellPave™ 40 permeable paving grids can be installed with either a grass or gravel filled surface and allow full rainwater penetration. Manufactured from UV stabilised 100% recycled HDPE, in black or green, CellPave™ 40 plastic pavers are strong, chemically inert & non-toxic, enabling them to provide a durable, safe & sustainable eco-friendly surface for trafficked areas.
The INDUSTRY STANDARD Cellular Paver with over 6.5 million grids supplied since production started in 2002.

Rola-Trac™ ULTRA – Temporary Event Flooring
Rola-Trac™ ULTRA is a click together system of panels, which can be fitted on any surface and to any shape, creating a firm, non slip surface for commercial, professional and domestic use. The flexibility and variety of uses make it one of the most adaptable flooring systems available. It can be used for both indoor and outdoor events where a solid non-skid surface is required and the existing surface must be protected. Grass is protected from being trampled and dirt areas are covered.
Rola-Trac™ ULTRA is very fast and easy to install, as no tools or expertise are required and panels are supplied in pre-assembled panels. It can be used in all weather conditions as it is molded with high-impact polypropylene with UV inhibitors preventing damage from long UV exposure.
Where time is of the essence and a walkway is required in a hurry, CellPave AP 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. CellPave AP 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.
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.
