Plastex Matting News
Heronrib matting is enhancing the enjoyment of guests at Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore, and their sight of the wonderful canals, picturesque bridges and architecture of Venice on its new Gondola Ride.
The operators recognised that there was a potential for the floor of the gondolas to get damp and wet which might cause slips and falls for guests. Matting specialist Klenco was approached to find a solution and they had no hesitation in recommending Heronrib matting, manufactured by Plastic Extruders Ltd.
Heronrib is the perfect answer for this type of wet area problem. The matting has an open grid construction and raised profile underbars, which help water to drain away easily in all directions. With an overall height of 10mm, the pooling water is also kept away from guests’ shoes and bags. As the matting is easy to cut to size, it contours perfectly into the bottom of the gondolas.
Heronrib, manufactured from hardwearing non-porous vinyl, is widely used for wet areas, such as external walkways, changing rooms and around swimming pools. The embossed surface is comfortable to stand on and highly slip resistant, while the anti-bacterial and anti-fungal additives added at manufacture ensure it is hygienic for bare feet and reduce cross-contamination. The matting, available in several colours, is supplied in 10m long rolls and in widths of 50cm, 1m and 1.22m.
