Summer has arrived, the official season for events. At Speedy that means our specialist events team are busy supporting our customers with outdoor events, concerts and festivals throughout the summer months.

Whether it's music, food, or sport, Speedy have all the equipment needed to run a successful event. From lighting and fencing to site and traffic equipment, we can provide the equipment you need, delivered direct to your site.  And if we don’t have the equipment you need our partnered services will source it for you.

Already this year we've been involved in a number of events and festivals, including; Glastonbury, Let's Rock, Ironman,and the Edinburgh Marathon, with many more due to take place over the coming months.  Working in partnership with our events team and other suppliers, we have developed a reputation for delivering all the necessary equipment to run any event, large or small.

Site and Traffic

We can provide specialist expertise for all your traffic management requirements, particularly useful at events where the traffic tends to be at its busiest. Our extensive range covers fencing, barriers and the latest in ground protection equipment, thus ensuring a complete site solution no matter where the event or what the weather.

Fencing and Ground Protection

Our fencing systems provide an excellent temporary barrier which is quick to assemble and an ideal choice for public events and concerts. We also have a range of barriers that can manage crowd control and traffic, including pedestrian walkways and trench covers, alongside the latest ground protection equipment.

The new Maxi Track system, available from Speedy, offers a premium quality trackway system that is easy to handle but hard to break. Made using a unique plastic to maximise impact resistance it also has a SmartGrip tread which ensures superior grip and durability, no matter what the event or weather.

Lightweight Temporary Traffic Signals

Our range of lightweight or freestanding traffic lights can provide a simple and safe traffic control solution with the added flexibility of being able to manoeuvre the units around a site quickly and easily. With low power LED optics, and latest in vehicle detection technology, the system adjusts automatically to running either during the day or at night.












Our units are compact, secure and totally silent, making them ideal for a wide range of traffic control applications and event locations.



With many events over the summer running late into the night, we can provide the right lighting solution for every occasion. From lighting towers to festoon lighting, our LED lighting fleet is one of the largest in the industry and delivers excellent eco credentials too.

Given our extensive range, it could be confusing knowing which lighting tower is suitable for you. To explain all the available options we've developed a Events Lighting guide to help outline the features and benefits of our main event lighting tower range.


VB9+ LED Lighting Tower 

The new poly LED lighting tower, exclusive to Speedy, features a 340° rotatable mast capable of extending to 8.5m and illuminates an area of 4,100sqm, approximately half the size of football pitch. The VB9+ represents state-of-the-art technology for safety and reliability, with LED lamps and LED drivers protected inside the poly body frame.

In addition, the water cooled engine provides excellent fuel saving costs whilst keeping operating noise levels down to ensure the local community isn’t kept awake at night by noisy equipment.

Pro Temp Mobile Solar Lighting Column

The latest addition to our lighting tower fleet, the Mobile Solar Lighting Column, is the first solar lighting column available from Speedy and offers a zero noise, emissions, fuel costs and maintenance free solution that is easily deployable and highly cost effective.

The product features an automatic dusk setting and a PIR sensor built in to detect movement which,once triggered, will increase the light output by 100% until any movement subsides.

Working with budgets large or small and to strict deadlines, our events team offer expert advice and a fully managed project installation and recovery service on everything we supply.
