VACUUM TECHNOLOGY

The future of ground protection installation

Laying floor panels for live events to protect the turf has been a steady, comparatively unspectacular process for the past 40 years. Under the guidance of experienced supervisors, temporary crews and hands performed the work manually. The decisive factors: weight, size, and design of a panel, the installation layout, and the number of workers available.

New standards in heavy-duty floor covering installation

Until now, many assistants and light, manageable panels meant fast installation. Now eps has solved this formula. With technical innovation and aluminum panels, the world’s leading infrastructure service provider in the live entertainment segment is setting new standards in installing heavy-duty floor covers.

BENEFIT AT ALL LEVELS

QUICK INSTALLATION QUICK INSTALLATION
Assembly and disassembly can be implemented much faster
INCREASED WORK SAFETY INCREASED WORK SAFETY
Safe, easier transport of the aluminum panels creates optimal working conditions
LESS COSTS LESS COSTS
Costs can be reduced thanks to time/staff savings
REDUCED CO₂ FOOTPRINT REDUCED CO₂ FOOTPRINT
The technology and resulting savings minimize CO₂ emissions

VACUUM MEETS ALUMINUM

We have found our ultimate dream team: vacuum technology and aluminum panels. With semi-automated installation, the installation time is twice as fast as the conventional technique. Dismantling is even faster. Also, a certain minimum number of personnel and the weight of the panels are no longer important for the installation.

New possibilities in the heavy-duty sector

This opens up completely new possibilities, especially in the heavy-duty sector. Due to the significantly lower CO₂ footprint compared with plastics, our new technology relies, in particular, on aluminum floor protection panels, which we recycle 100%. This also includes our recently developed lighter and more transport-efficient Arena Light Panels.








The future belongs to laying machines. Their use saves personnel and costs, increases speed and quality, and reduces our CO₂ emissions. It also ensures planning security and increases occupational safety requirements enormously. With well-trained personnel, we will achieve incredible capacities in the future – and in a much more sustainable way.

THE FUTURE BELONGS TO LAYING MACHINES

The new installation method was tested under a wide range of weather conditions—successfully. We reduced the laying time by almost 50 percent and had considerable cost savings compared to the conventional approach.

USE OF ALUMINIUM PANELS WITH LOWER CO₂ FOOTPRINT

Moreover, a certain minimum number of hands, panel weight, and dimensions are no longer important for the installation. Therefore, we increasingly rely on aluminum floor protection panels, which, compared to plastics, offer significantly lower CO₂ footprint.
