Frontrunner Entrance Flooring SystemsWhy is entrance flooring important? ...

... because you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.

As the first thing visitors see, entrance flooring is critical in both the form and function of a building. Firstly, because flooring is often the biggest single area of colour, thereby dictating the style and feel of a location. Secondly, and just as importantly, it plays a vital role in safety, cleanliness and comfort. The Frontrunner System will help you create that all important first impression. Whatever the location, be it the smartest of corporate head quarters, heavy traffic retail store or an industrial site, we have a range of styles and colours to help you achieve the effect you want


Excellence in cleanliness and durability

Research shows that up to 80% of dirt in a building comes in on the shoes of visitors, or on the wheels of deliveries. If it doesn’t get stopped at the entrance, it’s then carried all over the building, upping cleaning costs and increasing wear on internal floor finishes. Frontrunner elegantly traps and hides this dirt for easy removal during daily cleaning. When it comes to durability, we also score highly. Not only do we offer a three year warranty against manufacturing defects (page 23), but many of the photographs in this brochure feature installations which still look great after ten years service - including locations in high traffic retail stores. This outstanding mix of style, cleanliness and durability comes from unique diamond cut patterns in various degrees of aggressiveness, combined with an open grid that’s big enough to allow dirt to fall through, but small enough not to trap heels or wheels.


Health and Safety

Wet shoes and smooth floors can be a lethal combination. That is why all mats in the Frontrunner system are classified R11 under DIN 51130. What this means is that Frontrunner has been tested, when wet, to be slip resistant on an incline of 27º - and that’s steeper than all but black runs on European ski slopes!! Additionally, our matting patterns are designed to meet the requirements of the UK Disability Discrimination Act, providing sure and stable underfoot conditions.

Frontrunner Plus Custom Logos


The positioning of the scraper bars on Frontrunner Entrance Flooring Systems can be varied to allow the incorporation of a logo panel.


Logo panels are achieved by either die cutting with another compatible carpet or by ink jet printing, both methods giving a permanent and colourfast message.


Logo panels run the width of the matwell and are either 30 or 45cm tall, providing a highly visible message, in that all important "first impression" area.


Frontrunner Entrance Systems incorporating logos, can be supplied for recessed systems or surface mounted modular mats.
