Wedding Bells for EFS this summer

Wedding Bells for EFS this summer

Posted: Sat, 26 Aug 2017 11:02

EFS Europe was delighted to help with a wedding with a difference and make the great outdoors accessible for even ladies in heels! The Richardson family contacted us with a little problem… How to convert an arable field into a suitable venue for a series of teepees and their 200 plus guests? After the cornfield was harvested, and with just a week before the wedding, concerns were raised over the condition of the ground, which is when EFS stepped in! An access road was required to the teepees for the wedding guests, catering outlets, generators and toilet blocks. EFS installed their Hex Road, a heavy duty roadway ideal for instant access and car parking at events.

The second part of the brief was to provide a safe, pedestrian friendly, aesthetically pleasing area in front of the teepees for a designated guest area. After being rolled by the farmer, the field was partially covered with 30m x 10m of Temp-A-Path to the front of the teepees and catering outlets. Following installation of the Temp-A-Path, the client decided they wanted the area to resemble an English country garden lawn; EFS then laid their Gadsby 33m pile height Astroturf on top of the Temp-A-Path for a stunning finish. The client then sold on the Astroturf after the event – perfect recycling!

IRONMAN UK

IRONMAN UK

Posted: Wed, 26 Jul 2017 11:02

The organisers of the Ironman UK event in Bolton – now in its 13th year contacted EFS, once again, to provide a safe and secure transfer area from the swimming to cycling stages. Temp-A-Path was installed for this critical element of the event. Following a 2.4 mile open water swim the athletes leave the lake and transfer to their bikes for a 112 mile cycle ride followed by a full marathon! So it was vital that the transition area was made safe under foot when covered in water with athletes "sprinting" over it. Over 200m² of Temp-A-Path was installed by the team to create a safe and secure under foot surface from the lakeside to the transition area. This extreme sporting event attracted around 2000 athletes from around the globe. Frenchman, Cyril Viennot, won the race for the men whilst in the women's Lucy Gossage, 6 x Ironman champion won again. Jeremy Simpson – Business Development Manager of EFS commented: "With such a demanding high profile athletic event, we knew that it was vital for our product to stand up to the critical demands of the terrain and weather conditions. We were delighted to be involved and to see great performances from these talented athletes."
