Arena Panels

Load-distributing Arena Panels: Aluminum ground protection for vehicle traffic and pedestrians


eps custom-designed Arena Panels for stadiums. Similarly, the system is also useful for large-scale venues that accommodate heavy equipment or large crowds. Arena Panels create solid bases. Moreover, these provide suitable access roads for heavy loads on soft surfaces.

Arena Panels can function as a stable base for large stages. Similarly, these serve as a substructure for large stages or grandstands. You can erect these grandstands on lawns in stadiums. Moreover, these can also function as grandstands or as safe access for forklifts, site traffic, trucks, and heavy goods vehicles.

Ideal load-distribution

They are also suited for the short-term construction of working. In addition to this, you can also use these for parking areas. Similarly, these are also ideal for easily accessible car parks. The floor plates ensure improved load-bearing capacity. Moreover, these offer the best load distribution under extreme point loads.

This provides an ideal basis for preparing the football stadium. Moreover, it is also ideal for festival grounds or other event locations. These locations offer a venue for the high load requirements of large outdoor events.

Our Arena Panel system is lighter than other heavy-duty floor protection systems. Moreover, it is available in various sizes. A standard panel is 3 meters (9 ft 10 in) wide and 2.15 meters (7 ft 1 in) long. It weighs around 190 kilograms (419 lbs). There are also narrower and shorter versions. Moreover, these versions have a height of 4.8 cm (2 in). We use extruded aluminum with a slightly profiled surface for the production phase.

Fireproof and stable

The material offers silver-colored and unpainted aluminum plates. We offer these panels for long-term rentals. Similarly, these offer fireproof properties and stable texture. The high-quality floor protection comes in packages of 10 panels. Moreover, we can also take care of transport, construction, and breakdown. Similarly, one of our installation supervisors can provide on-site support.

Completely even surfaces

Arena Panels connect on all sides via an internal bolt and plate system. Moreover, this creates a completely even surface. Similarly, it ensures the most efficient weight distribution. Our systems are capable of supporting the heaviest of loads. Moreover, our panels are also compact and light enough. Therefore, you can lay them down manually with the help of a forklift.


Special ground issues, difficult terrain? No problem. Our team has got the right solution for all your needs.


The panels are lightweight. Moreover, these are stable enough to withstand heavy loads. You can also lay down large panels by hand. There is no need for a crane truck when laying the panels. However, the installation process may be complex. So, you may need several helpers for smaller areas. The panels are very firmly and stably connected. Therefore, you can only adapt them in one direction.


There are a few things you should know to protect sensitive lawns. You should ensure that the material, which is neither translucent nor permeable to air, is only suitable for a shorter lay period. The heavy-duty panels are convincing as stumble-edge-free protection. Moreover, these are pedestrian-friendly. Similarly, you can easily use these for floor covering. This happens due to counter-sunk bolts below the surface.

What are the Advantages of Arena Panels?

  • 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 tons (26455 lbs) per axel
  • More efficiently transportable compared with other aluminum roadways
  • eps Box Panels are recommended for uneven/undulating ground conditions
  • Constructed from 100% recyclable materials


We offer all relevant accessories, such as screws, brackets, 90° connectors, cable ducts, multiplex filling pieces, or plugs. We make underlays from PE foil, Enkamat, or geotextile. Moreover, these materials help prevent contamination. Similarly, these also protect the lawn at high temperatures. Ramps create smooth transitions from the laid floor slabs to the underlying floor.

Universal and ADA Ramps

In addition to start and end ramps and universal ramps for the panels’ transverse sides, we also have corner ramps and flatter. Therefore, we can offer wheelchair-friendly ADA start and end ramps. These are also ideal for enabling vehicles to enter and exit particularly gently. You can combine Arena Panels with all lawn protection systems for spectator areas.
