rigging, lifting and fall protection equipment that it offers under the


Roadcrew brand to suppliers serving the event industry, ranging from chain hoists and staging platforms, to harnesses and lanyards. The company says it also intends to launch a new line-up of material handling products at the Executive Hire Show.


Known to tool and equipment hirers for its business management software, inspHire promoted a system it has developed especially for the audio-visual and event hire markets under the Current brand. It is hosted and access entirely over the internet, enabling users to access and update information in the field or wherever they have a web connection. The software is designed to record details regarding hire and sales transactions, crew logistics, transportation and venue data.


Another software supplier, Syrinx, which will eventually adopt the name Point of Rental following its recent acquisition by the US-based developer, gave details of additional products it can now offer. Rental Essentials is a simple on-line system that can be used to handle orders placed via the internet, while the Expert package gives capabilities such as processing purchase orders and invoices, and can integrate with GPS tracking systems. Also available is Elite, described as a suite of business management applications, which can be customised to meet the needs of larger hire organisations.


HAE and its sister organisation, the Event Hire Association, promoted a number of new initiatives including new Codes of Practice scheduled to be published early next year. These include new guidance on Marquees and Temporary Structures, and on Portable Sanitation.


A-Plant was amongst a number of hirers that were once again exhibiting at the Show, and, on the first day, it announced that it had completed the acquisition of Lion Trackhire for a total consideration of £38m. It will be merged with the Eve trackway activity, which it

Another product range designed to minimise damage to turf is the articulating compact loaders from Avant. Making their debut on the company’s stand was a range of Tent Ox attachments for use in erecting or taking down marquees and similar structures. Implements available include pallet forks, tent peg hammers, post carriers, stake pullers and an attachment for raising canopies. Global Export Sales Manager Jukka Vaatovaara told EHN that the company has offered these for two years in America and now sees potential for them in the UK.





bought in 2013, and the combined operation will adopt the new name, Live, from 1 January, supplying trackway panels, fencing and barriers. Live will be managed by Dale Robinson, who has previously worked for Eve and also founded Lion. “We see real scope for growth in the supply of trackway for transmission and construction projects. HS2, for example, is going to be huge for temporary access.” A-Plant says it is also keen to grow Lion’s business in Germany, where it has a presence, and to further develop the European market.


Hewden’s display included a preview of new turf protection panels that the hirer will be introducing in the New Year for use at stadiums and other facilities with grass surfaces. The Terraflor system is designed to maintain a moist atmosphere under the tiles to enable grass to grow, and the panels have an overlap to prevent litter and liquids reaching the turf. Also available will be TerraTrak Plus, which offers the additional benefit of enabling sunlight to penetrate, allowing photosynthesis to take place for healthy grass.
