EFS Europe to Supply RHS Chelsea Flower Show

EFS Europe is delighted to announce that for the first time it will supply services to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The company's Hex-Road™ temporary roadway system will be installed on 6th May to create vehicular access to the world famous grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

With no plant machinery required, the organisers selected Hex-Road™ due to its ease of installation and uplift. In order to further reduce costs to the client, EFS Europe will be allow the RHS's own team to install the product, with a single EFS Europe staff member supporting the process. As Hex-Road™ is laid by hand, this scenario would not be possible with traditional aluminium or steel trackway.

The Hex-Road™ will be installed on top of a geo-textile membrane, preventing the product from embedding itself into the ground and minimising any negative impact.

Speaking on the forthcoming project, EFS Europe's Jeremy Simpson said:

"The very nature of the event requires the ground to be presented in the best possible way. This means that organisers have to strike a fine balance between selecting products that will cope with the vehicular demands but not cause unnecessary damage to the ground. With Hex-Road™ they have been able to select a product that perfectly meets the requirements."
