Prolift Access now has temporary roadway systems available for hire to complement its extensive fleet of more than 400 machines.

Ground protection is essential at any time of year when using powered access machinery, but particularly during the winter months when it can be wet and soft underfoot.

By hiring out Ground-Guards, Prolift Access is offering MEWP operators a safe and cost-efficient way of protecting turf or ground while carrying out work.

Ground-Guards RoadTrack panels, measuring 4ft x 8ft, weigh just 39kg each and can be installed quickly and easily by hand without the need for a crane.

But despite this, the lightweight plastic panels are capable of taking vehicles of up to 60 tonnes and are ideal for manoeuvring heavy machinery with minimal disturbance to the ground.

As well as protecting grass or turf, the Ground-Guards can prevent powered access machinery from becoming bogged down or stranded.

They have been designed as a practical and cost-effective alternative to stone roadways, and can be quickly and easily repositioned as the job progresses.

A lorry load of 500 Ground-Guards is enough to make a 600m roadway. Delivery and collection would involve just two lorry journeys, compared to 64 trips to create and remove a stone roadway of the same size.

Four smaller RoadTrack panel sizes are also available with roadway tread. Visit our Ground-Guards temporary roadway system hire page for more details, and to contact us with your requirements for a quote.
