Seamless cover for the heavy mob

A NEW seamless ground protection trackway for stadium and festival use promises a significant leap in the quality of temporary ground cover with its continuous surface and durability, according to developer Live Trakway.

Formed in 2016 by the merger of Eve Trakway and Lion Trackhire after both were acquired by rental business A-Plant, the company has invested £1 million on TigerTrak, with a further £5m spend expected over the next five years.

The product can support a 12-tonne axle load and is suitable for both stage support pads and heavy vehicle access, says the company, while manual installation eliminates the need for costly truck-based crane installation.

The seamless surface is achieved with a new edge locking system, in contrast to most track products which are held together by protruding bolts and plates.

“We applied a lot of fluid dynamic research into the surface to remove water from the tread and keep the traffic contact-point dry,” says Live MD Dale Robinson. “TigerTrak has been independently slip-tested, scoring in the same risk category as a permanent pavement and its profile fits seamlessly with [Live product] Supa-Trac, so there are no trip hazards between the two systems.”

Live’s clients include Glastonbury (cap. 140,000) and Latitude (35,000).
