Frontrunner SB+

Solid-backed entrance matting with carpet inserts for maximum moisture removal in internal areas.

The superhero of the entrance matting world, Frontrunner SB+ is a low-profile, solid-backed mat that requires no recessed mat well.

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 etched pattern removes debris and the heavy-duty absorbent inserts dries any moisture, helping to reduce the amount of dirt walked into the building. Wheel and heel proof with excellent rolling resistance, it's perfect for commercial buildings and shopping centers with high traffic.
