When To Use Temporary Event Flooring

Event flooring can be a fantastic feature of any venue for so many reasons. Whether it’s outside or inside, you will have seen the utilisation of temporary flooring to serve many purposes.

Quite often at venues, the original ground is just not suitable for the event you’re holding. On top of that, if it’s a large event the high amount of traffic is enough to damage or mark even the toughest of permanent flooring.

Protecting Your Venue With Event flooring

One of the purposes of temporary event flooring is to protect. Sometimes you have ground or floors at your venue that need to be preserved for a multitude of reasons.

Let’s take a look at the different types of flooring that needs protecting:


Outside events often make great use of event flooring, grass looks lovely when undisturbed, but is so quickly turned into a muddy mess. Particularly at festivals or in park events, utilising temporary flooring to save the green grass below is encouraged and sometimes necessary. After all, too much mud means no event entirely.

Historical Buildings

Here in the UK, we’re blessed with so many historical buildings and landmarks. Sometimes, events are held within them to enjoy their beauty and elegance. However, history must be preserved, and, in some circumstances, you might require temporary flooring to preserve the floor of a building.


Protecting carpets is a massive priority if you’re venue has them, specifically around the bar area. If your event serves drinks, and you’re expecting a large amount of people to attend, its better to be safe than sorry when it comes to a carpeted bar area.

Protection isn’t the only purpose of event flooring, quite often it can be used to guide crowds as well.

Parks and festivals are where this is utilised the best. If you’ve got a large open area with a multitude of acts, stages and booths, you’re going to want to give people some form of direction. Coloured walkways made from our durable flooring can be the perfect answer to this.
