The Royal Horticultural Society commissioned Event Flooring Solutions (EFS) to provide temporary event flooring for this year’s event at the magnificent Chatsworth House. This is the second year running that EFS has been selected to provide the flooring for this major event.

At the heart of the site sits the Floral Marquee, home to nurseries, specialist societies and floral design. EFS provided the flooring for this impressive marquee with their Temp-A-Path, a lightweight, robust, interlocking flooring system.

The flooring was installed again this year, to improve accessibility, enhance visitor-experience and provide comfortable and safe all-weather terrain for the thousands of visitors.

The installation took place over two days with seven men working eight hours per day, with the uplift taking the crew the same amount of time. All together, 5700sqm of light grey Temp-A-Path was installed. This was laid on top of a Geo-membrane to improve protection to the ground below.


Jeremy Simpson, EFS’s managing director said: “We were delighted to work with the Royal Horticultural Society for the second year running. We knew that Temp-A-Path would tick all the boxes; it does what it says on the tin! 

“Thousands of visitors punished the flooring across the five days of the event. The product had proven itself time and time again and the organisers knew it would stand up to the anticipated heavy footfall! We supplied the flooring with geo-membrane to further protect the beautiful lawns. We were delighted to be asked to supply the event again, which was another knock-out success for the RHS.”

The RHS Chatsworth Flower Show offered a thrilling day out that blended tradition with exciting and innovative design. The five-day show took place from 5th-9th June with thousands of people flocking to the show.
