Frontrunner Entry

Open-grid, slip-resistant entrance matting designed for high traffic areas.

Set the scene with Frontrunner Entry, the perfect entrance matting for high traffic areas.


The mat's aggressive tread pattern scrapes shoes and wheels clean, while the open grid traps and collects the dirt and debris, preventing it from being tracked inside. This expands the life of your floor finishes and keeps interiors looking stylish for longer.

  • Seamless integration: Choose from modules with ramped PVC edging, rolls in standard widths and 33' lengths, or order a custom size
  • Simple installation: One-piece construction means you can cut to fit on site, with no previous site visits needed
  • Easy to maintain: Simply roll or lift to clean, no special tools needed

Working with ceramic floor tiles or carpet? Frontrunner Entry also comes in a 13/32" low profile, which means you don't need to create a deeper mat well in the existing subfloor.
