Frontrunner SB

Solid-backed, ribbed entrance matting designed for internal and external areas without a mat well.

Download Data Sheet

No mat well? No problem: Frontrunner SB is a loose lay entrance system designed to be placed directly over your existing floor coverings.

The mat’s ribbed surface scrapes shoes and wheels clean, while the grid traps and collects debris. This helps to prevent dirt being tracked inside, which helps to reduce cleaning intervals and keeps interiors looking stylish for longer.

Slip resistant, wheel-proof and heel-proof, Frontrunner SB has excellent rolling resistance, making it the ideal loose lay matting for workplaces, commercial buildings, supermarkets, and shopping centres with high foot traffic.

Installation is simple. Adhere directly to the floor to create a surface-mounted entrance walkway, or place this loose lay matting directly over your existing floor to create a slip-resistant walkway – no mat well required.

Frontrunner SB's one-piece construction means installation is simple

There are two ways to install SB: you can adhere directly to the floor, or loose lay modules with PVC edging. For large installations with medium to high traffic, we recommend adhering your mat using F Ball’s Styccobond F73 PLUS, which is a single-part, heavy-duty adhesive that provides high bond strength.
