Plastex Matting News
Frontrunner XT entrance matting from Plastic Extruders Ltd is being laid across Lidl stores in Germany. Currently installed in numerous locations, the high performance matting provides a safe and slip resistant walkway over the ceramic floors, which otherwise could be slippery due to rain or snow.
The 100% vinyl open grid matting, specified by German flooring specialist GfG Group, was selected because of its proven high performance in extreme weather conditions and its tough grip surface which removes underfoot dirt. This in turn falls through the grid and is not transferred inside buildings by subsequent visitors, thereby reducing cleaning and maintenance costs.
Frontrunner XT is loose laid and can easily be rolled up to facilitate easy cleaning and removal of dirt beneath. It is supplied in 5 or 10m rolls and in widths of 60, 91 and 120cm for recessed and surface-mounted applications and is also available as a stand alone module and in different colour options.
Frontrunner XT forms part of the popular Frontrunner Entrance Flooring System range which comprises several mats suitable for different interior and exterior applications. It is often used externally in combination with Frontrunner Plus, the entrance matting for interior use with absorbent inserts within the vinyl grid designed to scrape, clean and dry shoes. Other options include Frontrunner Brush with nylon brush inserts to combat severe soiling and Frontrunner Brush Wide with an extra wide grid. All of can be trimmed easily on site to fit any shape, such as within revolving doors or irregular shaped matwells.
