Trackways, Access Roads & Ground Protection

When using access platforms on rough terrain or weak ground there can be a requirement for temporary roadways or ground protection.

At Blade Access we offer different types of temporary roadway and surface protection solutions for all ground conditions. This can be from a complete temporary roadway to access site or simply large outrigger pads to reduce outrigger point loadings.

Trackway hire or the installation of a temporary road can be most useful when access platforms are required to work where weak or soft ground is present. This could be on grass or water logged rough terrain for example.

We can offer either composite or aluminium panels all of which can be deployed at any location throughout the UK. For more information please contact our hire desk on 0845 1 900 800

Terrafirma Temporary Roadways


It is not only vital to restrict pedestrians from entering your work zones but to also ensure a safe and protected alternative route is provided where works obstruct footpaths and walkways.

Our considerately designed schemes can help reduce them impact on local residents where site works can be distressing and cause disturbance.

Our Pedestrian Management schemes can be designed and integrated in to more complex Traffic Management projects where required allowing you to concentrate on your works knowing your pedestrian management is in safe hands.

Point Loading Reduction


All Access Platforms generate a loading either during travel or when elevated. Consequently, it is occasionally a requirement to reduce these loadings.

This can be to meet the loading design criteria of a particular surface or to simply increase the stability of a platform on untested ground.

We have various options available to reduce point loadings and for more information please contact our hire desk on 0845 1 900 800
