Live Trakway set to Make a New World Record
Live Trakway kicked off the events season in Europe with the largest single trakway area they have ever created in their 50-year existence and they believe the installation is highly likely to be a new World Record.
Record trakway stock
Live, the merger of Lion Trackhire and Eve has positioned the company as the largest trakway stockholder in the world, with the nearest competitor having only 1/3 of Live’s total stock and crew capability. Established over 50 years ago, the company created the very first Trakway panel. Putting their capability into context, if they laid all their trakway end-to-end, they would easily cover a 155-mile distance from their main offices in Chesterfield to London and almost be able to run their barriers and fencing alongside it too!
The largest temporary floor
This May, LIVE installed a colossal platform when the German Evangelical Church staged a major outdoor convention to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Church’s Reformation. The weekend of the 27th and 28th saw a global congregation converge on the banks of the river Elbe near Wittenberg, where the event required the flooring for access, utilities, operations, backstage area and emergency services camps – altogether more than 20 specific operational zones.
Working on the event with Limes Logistik GmbH & Co. KG and in cooperation with Cteam Consulting & Anlagenbau GmbH, Live installed a staggering total of 7,315 aluminium panels (approx. 53,000m²) all connected with sunken bolts and internal cross-plating to attain a zero-risk trip hazard platform. The largest continuous area was for the huge backstage section where they installed an impressive 4,252 panels (approx. 31,000m²) of temporary floor, equating to over four football fields!
Using their unique 5th generation ‘Lion’ Panel, they were able to create a completely flat floor using the panel’s recessed bolting and unique side connectors. With seven Lorries and crews, one project manager and two site supervisors, they completed the mammoth installation in just eight days. Known for many firsts in the industry, Live are now applying for a Guinness World Record for ‘the World’s largest temporary floor’.
