Frontrunner Plus matting cleans up

Posted on November 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A problem with any entrance hall is how to reduce wet and dirt entering and soiling the building. At the same time, any entrance matting needs to be attractive, easily cleaned and to create a pleasant transition between the street and the interior. Canterbury City Council recently used Frontrunner Plus in the entrance hall of Windsor House at Whitstable. This complex of 47 flats provides sheltered accommodation for elderly people. Staff say they are pleased that Frontrunner Plus is not only very successful in wiping shoes and keeping the new carpets clean but, importantly for older people, it also helps to prevent slips and tripping. Frontrunner Plus can be cut to size from 12m rolls and is easily shaped to any configuration or design. Its flexibility means that it is quiet, contours easily to the floor and is quick to install or remove. Literature and samples of the matting are available from Plastic Extruders, Tel 01268 735231.
