Ground-Guards launch innovative and environmentally-friendly ground protection solution

Ground-Guards Ltd, a leading supplier of innovative and high performance temporary access solutions, has launched an advanced and cost-effective ground protection system that is ideal for use in retail and car showrooms.

Made from 100% recycled PVC, Ground-Guard’s new FastCover PLUS in an extension of the popular FastCover range and features unique interlocking flanges for improved ease of use and a superior trip-free surface. Lighter and easier to install, FastCover PLUS is a versatile ground protection solution that is suitable for a range of tasks, from surface protection for block paving and interior floors, to temporary protection for paths and walkways and permanent flooring in factories and warehouses.

Weighting just 14.5kg per mat, FastCover PLUS can be laid directly onto grass, footpaths or stone bases, featuring a superior anti-slip surface for maximum health and safety, whilst built-in hand holes make the product easy to handle and ensure that lifting and transporting the system is simple.

In addition, interlocking lugs connect the mat securely together in straight runs as well as being able to create a brick-bond pattern, giving a more smooth, firm and trip-free surface.  Built with durability and longevity in mind, FastCover PLUS features an innovative honeycomb underside, providing strong structural support and ultimately increasing the useable life of the product.

FastCover PLUS is ideal for use on an outdoor worksite all year round thanks to it’s improved ability to accommodate heat expansion. So much so that the innovative matting system can even be used effectively as temporary car parks over stone surfaces.

Marcus Oliver, Product Development Manager at Ground-Guards, commented: “As ground protection differs greatly from project to project, it’s important that those working in retail have access for solutions that can adapt to different applications and meet specific requirements.

“At Ground-Guards, we are constantly looking at ways we can raise the bar in the temporary access solutions market so we are delighted to be launching our new FastCover PLUS system.  This cost-effective, environmentally-friendly and versatile matting system not only offers a superior trip-free surface to maximise safety, but it’s also really quick and easy to install, for those looking for a ground protection solution.”

Backing up the launch of FastCover Plus is Ground-Guards commitment to provide its customers with a first class service offering, which includes product warranties and access to training at the company’s state-of-the-art facilities in Yorkshire.
