Load-distributing Aluminum Ground Protection for Vehicle Traffic and Pedestrians

eps offers custom-designed Arena Panels that are specifically tailored to stadiums and large-scale venues, capable of supporting heavy equipment or accommodating large crowds. These aluminum panels create solid bases, providing suitable access roads for heavy loads on soft surfaces. They can serve as stable bases for large stages or grandstands, making them ideal for use on lawns in stadiums. They can also be safe access routes for forklifts, site traffic, trucks, and heavy goods vehicles.


  • Pedestrian-friendly textured grip and counter-sunk connections
  • The weight distribution of load protects the subsurface and reduces compression
  • Supports access for heavy vehicles up to a maximum weight of 12 t (26,455 lbs) per axel

Our ArenaPanel® system is lighter compared to other heavy-duty floor protection systems, making it more convenient to use. It is available in various sizes, with a standard panel measuring 3 meters (9 feet 10 inches) wide and 2.15 meters (7 feet 1 inch) long, weighing approximately 190 kilograms (419 pounds). There are also narrower and shorter versions with a height of 4.8 cm (2 inches). For production, we use extruded aluminum with a slightly profiled surface.

Product Description

The material offers silver-colored and unpainted aluminum plates, which are available for long-term rentals. They are packaged in sets of 10 panels. These panels are fireproof and have a stable texture, ensuring high-quality floor protection. We also offer transportation, construction, and breakdown services. Additionally, our installation supervisors can provide on-site support.

Completely Even Surfaces

Arena Panels connect on all sides using an internal bolt and plate system, creating a completely even surface. This ensures efficient weight distribution and allows our systems to support heavy loads. Despite being compact and light, you can lay down our panels manually with the help of a forklift.

US: 105 per truck = ca. 677 m² / 7,276 sqft
Optional Extras

We offer a comprehensive range of accessories, including screws, brackets, 90° connectors, cable ducts, multiplex filling pieces, and plugs. We also provide underlays made from PE foil, EnkaMat, or Geotextile, which help prevent contamination and protect the lawn from high temperatures. Ramps are available to create smooth transitions from the laid floor panels to the underlying floor.

Universal and ADA Ramps

In addition, to start and end ramps, as well as universal ramps for the panels’ transverse sides, we also offer corner ramps and flatter ramps. This allows us to provide wheelchair-friendly ADA start and end ramps, which are also ideal for enabling vehicles to enter and exit smoothly. Arena Panels can be combined with all turf protection systems.


  • Ramp accessories to ensure safe and smooth transitions to subsurfaces
  • ADA Ramps facilitate wheelchair access
  • Optional range of underlays to protect subsurfaces and adapt to ground conditions
  • Transition products to seamlessly connect Arena Panels with other ground and turf protection systems
  • Flex Panels to create seamless curves in roadways
  • Compatible with eps’ range of pedestrian and drivable flooring
  • Cable Protectors to safeguard equipment and audiences on the event floor
  • CAD design to help optimize planning processes


Arena Panels are the perfect pedestrian-friendly floor protection in any weather, here at the “Openair Frauenfeld” and “Wacken Open Air


The panels are lightweight, yet stable enough to withstand heavy loads. They can be laid down by hand without the need for a crane truck, making installation easier. However, the installation process may be complex, so you may need several helpers for smaller areas. The panels are very firmly and securely connected, so you can only adapt them in one direction.


There are a few important things to know when protecting sensitive lawns. The material is not translucent nor permeable to air, making it suitable for shorter lay periods. The heavy-duty panels provide stumble-edge-free protection and are pedestrian-friendly. Similarly, you can easily use these for floor covering due to counter-sunk bolts below the surface, making them easy to walk on.

Arena Panels are also suitable for short-term construction and working purposes. You can use these for parking areas and for easily accessible car parks. The floor plates ensure improved load-bearing capacity and offer optimal load distribution under extreme point loads.

Ideal for High Load Requirements

Arena Panels provide an ideal foundation for preparing football stadiums, festival grounds, and other event locations with high load requirements for large outdoor events.
