Frontrunner SB 01

Gateway SB

Solid-backed, ribbed entrance mat that can be used in internal or external environments with no mat well.

Designed to integrate easily with existing floor coverings, Gateway SB (Frontrunner SB) is a low profile, solid-backed walk-off mat.

The ribbed pattern scrapes shoes and wheels clean, while the grid construction traps and collects debris, helping to reduce the amount of dirt walked into the building.

Wheel- and heel-proof and resistant to rolling, this indoor entrance mat’s commercial benefits are numerous, as it can be loose laid in just about any commercial or retail environment. Just roll it out, cut to fit and lay within your existing carpet tiles or luxury vinyl tiles – no mat well needed.

You can also place this ribbed entrance mat directly onto your current floor, with ramped PVC edges creating a slip-resistant entrance walkway.

Gateway SB's one-piece construction means installation is simple

There are two ways to install SB: you can adhere directly to the floor, or loose lay modules with PVC edging. For large installations with medium to high traffic, we recommend adhering your mat using F Ball’s Styccobond F73 PLUS, which is a single-part, heavy-duty adhesive that provides high bond strength.
