Stadiums, Sports Centres, Swimming Pools, Hotels

With varied traffic flow between locations, event areas would experience exceptional traffic levels on particular days, whilst other areas such as hotels have a regular traffic flow. These areas are demanding and require heavy duty matting to ensure safety of all visitors and the protection of internal floor coverings.

Aesthetic value is important, enhancing the entrance areas and the impression of all visitors. Durability and efficiency of the matting is also essential, ensuring it can function correctly in times of high traffic flow and inclement weather.

Specialist matting is available for entrances/access routes between fields and buildings, with the aggressive INTRAbrush matting offering excellent performance in the removal of coarse dirt from studded footwear etc.
