EFS Europe returned to the Reading & Leeds Festivals this year to once again keep the artist and backstage areas clear and accessible.

The specialist temporary surfacing provider installed over 1,000m2 of its plastic Temp-A-Path product to create safe pedestrian access for artists and production staff. The material was deployed around the village of portakabins that are used as dressing rooms, and also to create clear access from those areas to the main stage.

In addition, the Reading site also used a further 100m2 of Temp-A-Path in and around the female toilet areas. EFS Europe also supplied and installed the carpets within all of the artist dressing rooms.

Both festivals have increased the use of EFS Europe's plastic flooring in the last two years, with the product's easy installation by hand giving it the ability to be retrospectively installed once all of the portakabins have been located in position.

EFS Europe Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson said:

"We're delighted to have increased our work with Festival Republic over the last couple of years and we're particularly proud of how well the products have performed at the sites. Both the Reading and Leeds Festivals are significant parts of the British summer season and to play a part in them is a great marker for our company."
