Access Solutions

Whether your event is taking place in a temporary location or a permanent venue access can sometimes prevent people being able to come along and take part. Acorn’s in-house design, sales and onsite build team have a wealth of knowledge to help overcome accessibility issues. From temporary walkways to create level access over uneven ground to bridges over busy roads to help increase pedestrian safety, Acorn has the vast experience to supply it all. Staircases and access ramps are key features in many of Acorn’s staging and temporary structures and can be supplied as an integral part of a larger build. Acorn can also supply access solutions as a one-off installation for client’s own builds where needed.

As with all temporary structures and staging supplied by Acorn Structures, pedestrian walkways and bridges are fully engineered and supplied with drawings and structural calculations. They are also fast to install minimising site disruption and road closures.

With a range of sizes and configurations available to suit size, height and space, access ramps, staircases and bridges come with a choice of floor covering or cladding materials. In addition they are supplied with a choice of handrails, from the basic to VIP standard, that are fully complaint to all relevant public access regulations.


Acorn Structures have installed the sub-structure for start and finish gantries at some of the most renown sporting events across the United Kingdom. These structures have supported cladding and branding that have enabled organisers to enhance sponsor promotion.

Entrance facades over the years at prestigious events such as RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Frieze London and Frieze Masters and Goodwood Festival of Speed have been made possible because of Acorn gantries.

Service gantries to accommodate essential cabling and ducting are also regular structures installed by Acorn as part of their extensive event temporary structure provision.

Acorn Structures gantries have clear spans from 6 to 30 metres and are configurable to virtually any height and width. With minimal site preparation requirements, the fast installation also minimises disruption. Finishes gantries can be covered in a choice of cladding or branding materials.
