When our Fieldguard honeycomb hollow ring mats were first available, we were contacted by a primary school who had a serious problem with mud and dirt being bought indoors throughout the year after the children had been playing outside.
We suggested that they may consider trying our large, heavy duty honeycomb mat, which is what they did with a small section of one of the play areas. They were laid extremely well by the school ground staff, and the result was spectacular in dirt and mud suppression.
The following school holiday they decided to complete the job on that section. So pleased were they that the children now had year round access to the outdoors that the following school holiday they covered their final two large play areas.
When the delivery lorry arrived it was to be greeted by the groundsman with the comment “I’m on my own, I’ve a bad back so you’d better throw them (all 500 of them) off onto the grass one at a time”. Our driver had noticed that next door to the school was a building site complete with a large digger, so he asked the driver if he’d help out. All mats off loaded in 10 minutes and still neatly stacks on their pallets.
The mats have proved superb at retaining green grass all year round, and are still happily ‘working’ as can be seen when looking at any pictures of the children playing outside on the school web site.
Fieldguard are proud to have been of service, with a durable product that has helped The Russell School for the past 10 years, and will continue to do so many years hence; for the mats show no signs of wear whatsoever.
