Designed for internal areas with high traffic, Gateway SB+ (Frontrunner SB+) is a low-profile, solid-backed, ribbed entrance mat that requires no recessed mat well.



Simply roll out, cut to fit and lay it within your existing entrance carpet tiles or luxury vinyl tiles. The PVC edges means you can also place this ribbed carpet entrance matting directly on your current floor to create a walkway or surface module mat.

The mat's etched pattern removes dirt while the heavy-duty absorbent inserts absorb moisture, reducing the amount of dirt that’s walked into your building.

Wheel- and heel-proof, and resistant to rolling, this heavy-duty ribbed entrance matting is ideal for use in commercial buildings and shopping centres.

Seamless integration

Comes in 10m (33") rolls or order a custom size

Simple installation

Simply roll out and cut to fit on site; contours to uneven surfaces

Easy to maintain

Light to handle; no special cleaning tools needed

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.

Watch the videos below for a step-by-step installation guide, or download the installation instructions here.
