Frontrunner Plus goes to school

Plastic Extruders' open-grid entrance matting system is helping to keep a Danish university clean and dry

Posted by Dave Higgitt | March 05, 2015 | Interiors

As part of a refurbishment project, Frontrunner Plus entrance matting was installed in several entrances at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH), the oldest and largest university and research institution in Denmark. Supplied by distributor Top Matting, this entrance flooring system was chosen for its ease of maintenance, quick installation time and ex-stock availability.

Manufactured from flexible PVC in the UK and USA by Plastic Extruders Ltd (Plastex), the product features an open grid which scrapes dirt off shoes and allows it to fall through, whilst the absorbent inserts capture moisture, keeping internal floors clean and dry. This translates to a reduction in cleaning and maintenance costs. Savings on installation time and cost are also achieved, as Frontrunner Plus is supplied in 10m-long rolls, allowing for seamless and quick installations as the mat is cut on site.

Frontrunner Plus comes in five grid colours, with a choice of 10 different absorbent inserts to allow the perfect match with interiors.

Frontrunner Plus is part of the Frontrunner Entrance Flooring range, a system that combines entrance matting products for interior and exterior use, including a choice of nylon brushes for areas with severe soiling, a more aggressive thread pattern for increased slip resistance (R12 rating under DIN 51130) as well as a solid backing and 6.5mm overall thickness for areas that do not have a recessed mat well.

Whatever entrance requirements you may have, Plastic Extruders can “offer the right product for the right reason”.
