The original 'scrape and clean' entrance system


Well proven as the ideal first barrier to prevent dirt entering buildings, Frontrunner Entry’s ingenious combination of an abrasive ‘diamond’ tread surface, to literally scrape away undershoe dirt, with an open gird system to let the debris automatically fall through, effectively prohibits dirt from being trodden inside a building. This efficient, high quality, ‘clean and scrape’ system also protects internal floorcoverings and significantly reduces cleaning costs.

The special close space design of the open grid bars, also allows the product to be heel proof and suitable for wheel chairs, shopping trolleys and other wheeled traffic.

Frontrunner Entry is manufactured by Plastex from a hardwearing, flexible PVC and supplied in rolls so that large areas can be conveniently covered by one piece of flooring. Modules can additionally be supplied with sub-dividing panels created by the use of joining strip-enabling extensions. This allows sections to be easily removed for periodic high pressure cleaning and other specialist cleaning such as the removal of chewing gum.

When used in conjunction with Frontrunner Plus, which additionally removes moisture, the system provides permanent entrance protection that is durable and certified slip resistant.

Low Profile Frontrunner

Frontrunner is available in a standard 14mm (9/16") thickness and also in a low profile version of 10mm 3/8". At this height, Frontrunner Low Profile aligns with standard ceramic floor tiles and carpets in recessed applications to avoid the need and expense of creating a deeper matwell in an existing subfloor in order to accommodate the entrance matting system.
