Plastex Matting News
Frontrunner XT slip resistant matting has been installed on all exposed walkways at a housing development of 4 blocks of apartments on 3 levels - 550 sqm, in St Laurent Blangy, Northern France.
Manufactured in the UK by Plastic Extruders Ltd and supplied by French flooring distributor Socofra Ubo, the matting has solved the dual problem of the occupants slipping on the passageways when wet and also reducing the echoing from pedestrian traffic.
Frontrunner XT is the perfect choice for exterior walkways, balconies and decking.
Manufactured from 100% vinyl, it has a highly slip resistant deeply embossed surface which is safe, permanently weatherproof and comfortable to stand on. Also, in addition to being heel and wheel-proof, it dampens down and absorbs noise.
The open grid matting is 14mm high enabling it to straddle pools of water whilst the open grid heel-proof surface allows water to drain through keeping the standing surface dry. Frontrunner XT is laid loose and contours over uneven or rough surfaces.
Frontrunner XT is supplied in 10m rolls, making it quick, easy and cost effective to install and providing a firm underfoot surface in all weathers. Other external options include Frontrunner Brush with nylon brush inserts to combat severe soiling and Frontrunner Brush Wide with an extra wide grid for larger debris to fall through. Manufactured from flexible PVC, they can all can be trimmed easily on site to fit any shape, such as within revolving doors or irregular shaped matwells.
