Frontrunner SB

Solid-backed entrance matting designed for internal and external areas with no mat well.

Frontrunner SB is a low-profile, solid-backed mat that can be loose laid to integrate easily with your existing floor coverings.

Simply roll out, cut to fit and lay within your existing carpet tiles or luxury vinyl tiles – no mat well needed. You can also place directly on your current floor with ramped PVC edges to create a slip-resistant walkway.

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

Wheel and heel proof with excellent rolling load endurance, it's perfect for commercial buildings and shopping centers with high traffic.
