Our grass protection mats support sustainable construction

The use of grass protection mats aligns with the emergence of sustainable construction practices, in the UK. At Davis Trackhire we are confident that our high-density polyethylene (HDPE) ground protection helps to minimize disturbances to ecosystems, prevents soil compaction, and contributes to overall environmental preservation.

In the UK, maintaining aesthetic landscapes is crucial, as it encourages others to preserve and look after their surroundings too. Maintainance has a knock-on effect. Our HDPE parking mats for grass allow projects to proceed without causing lasting damage to lawns, parks, or recreational areas.

Our grass parking grids preserve green spaces, ensuring that the environment remains attractive and enjoyable for residents and visitors.

Grass protection mats are often written into contracts

Ground protection is not always a direct legal requirement; however, the use of ground mats is often written into contracts, and made mandatory by the council, health and safety policies, insurers, agricultural groups, construction company guidelines and more…

 

Most roadside or highway maintenance requires the use of temporary roadway mats. This is to prevent the disturbance and destruction of the surrounding soft ground, and to avoid its dispersion into the road causing accidents.

The implications of not using grass protection mats

Not using grass car parking mats, where they are required can result in a myriad of costly fines, civil court cases, and punishments. In some circumstances, legal cases. If someone has a direct injury from lack of improper grass protection this could cause the filing of a personal injury, negligence or criminal damage case.

 

That’s why we are on hand to advise where we believe grass protection mats are required on your site, which type of mat will be best for the ground, how many are required, and what accessories are needed.

Ourdoor events and grass protection mats 

Where works are being completed or an event is being hosted on listed grounds, temporary grass protection mats should always be used. Listed grounds require the utmost protection, to support the preservation and respect of our land and heritage. Significant fines and punishments can arise for damage to listed grounds where trackmats for heavy equipment are not used.

In fact, councils explicitly hold the right to fine construction companies or event organisers for any damage caused to the ground and trees as a result of the works or event. An example of this is Splendour Festival in Nottingham, hosted on Wollaton Hall & Deer Park which is a grade ll listed building alongside other properties on the land which are also listed. In May 2023, Nottingham City Council initiated a new festival organisation process for Wollaton Park, which due to complications meant the 2024 festival had to be cancelled. Although grass car parking mats and overflow car park matting, would have been just one aspect of their new stricter process, it plays a vital role in gaining approval and meeting outdoor event criteria.
