Is temporary car park flooring the answer for your event?

Car parks are one of the most important parts of any event, construction site or business. They need to be durable, easy to clean and maintain, and comfortable for visitors. Temporary car park flooring can satisfy all these demands – while still being temporary.

When the time comes to move the car park after completing a project or event, you simply remove the flooring, leaving a clean space. Temporary floor coverings also help protect the ground from damage, so the surface can return to how it was before the event. It’s a smart decision all round.

So, what exactly is it?

Temporary car park flooring is a type of flooring that’s designed to be used at all types of events and occasions where vehicles need to be parked at the venue/property. It’s straightforward to install, and can be removed quickly too. Outside of the car park, it can also be used as a surface for exhibitions, trade shows and other similar events. The flooring material incorporates an anti-slip feature, which provides added safety for those walking on it. It also provides protection from scratches and scrapes occurring on any existing floors.

There are multiple benefits

With so many benefits, it’s no wonder temporary car park flooring is becoming more and more popular for events such as weddings, expos and music festivals. These are just some of the benefits:

  • Easier to install – Installing a temporary car park flooring system is easier and quicker than installing a permanent car park flooring system.
  • Offers an attractive traffic pattern – These floors can be made from a variety of materials, such as aluminium, plastic rubber and PVC; providing a distinctive look at your event.
  • Protects the ground underneath – The surface underneath the temporary car park floor will be protected from dirt, oil and other contaminants that vehicles can leave behind.
  • Improved safety – Parking areas with temporary car park floors provide better grip for vehicles; plus, its surface reduces the risk of accidents occurring due to slipperiness or tripping hazards.

It’s also tough and cost-effective

In many cases, temporary car park flooring will be less expensive than other types of flooring. The material is also durable and long-lasting, which means you won’t have to purchase new temporary flooring again any time soon.

Temporary car park flooring does not need protection from UV rays or harsh chemicals because it’s made from polypropylene, which is highly resistant to all kinds of weather conditions. It handles abrasion well and there are no worries about oil spots from cars on it.

What can temporary car park flooring be used for?

This flooring is  handy for events/venues/companies with limited permanent parking, but with land available. It’s the ideal solution for events and occasions such as:

  • FestivalsUsed to create a designated parking area for attendees’ vehicles.
  • New business locations –Temporary car park flooring is a cost-efficient way to establish your presence at ground level.
  • Sporting events –Often used as a designated parking area or as a ramp for loading and unloading.
  • Construction sitesA safer alternative to gravel or dirt sites where people are working.
  • Schools, colleges, universitiesThis temporary flooring is often utilised because there’s nowhere for people to park their The surface can also be used as an attractive alternative to traditional concrete, which can quickly become unattractive due to wear and tear from heavy usage.

Are there any disadvantages to using it?

Temporary car park flooring may not be as aesthetically pleasing as some other types of flooring. And depending on the size and duration of your event, the cost may quickly add up. Some types of temporary flooring are easier to clean than others after an event: especially if they’re used for outdoor events where rain or other weather conditions come into play. However, remember it is highly effective, safe and convenient – and not a permanent solution.
