The Frontrunner Entrance Flooring System uses a simple but effective framing method, which is installed at the same time as the entrance flooring.
As the Frontrunner Entrance Flooring System is supplied in rolls or panels, the installation is quick and easy and does not require any advance templating. Additional visits to site for fitting the matwell frame when the floor slab is poured are also not required.
'U' Frames- Used in areas of traffic movement. Same height as the Frontrunner Grid, which ensures a level, smooth and quiet transition across entrance system.
'R' Frames - Used on left and right extremities of well to cap and secure ends.
'T' Frames (optional) - Used as dividers for large left to right panels, to ease removal of panel for seasonal maintenance of matwells. Positioned outside of traffic areas.
'L' Formable Trims (optional) - Used in circular door and non-rectangular installations.
The recessed well should be to a depth of 14mm* from the finished floor level. It should have a level and sound base, free from any obstructions. If required, use a self-levelling latex screed to bring the base of the matwell up to required overall depth.
*for low profile installations the depth is 10mm.
The simplicity of Frontrunner Entrance Flooring System allows it to be installed by any competent building tradesman. Easy to follow instructions are included with each delivery. It is advisable to install the Entrance Flooring System as one of the final jobs before handover, to reduce soiling or damage from other heavy building processes.
Frames are secured using screws and plugs supplied with the system. When completed the 'R' frames cap and further secure the matting and 'U' frames.
The matting will be supplied either in rolls or pre-cut panels (supplied slightly over size) to allow for final trimming and fitting on site. This allows for any slight variations in the matwell size from design drawing, through to actual construction.
Once cut to size, the panels of Frontrunner are positioned in the matwell. The flexible PVC grid facilitates the snug fitting under the 'R' profiles.
The following cleaning and maintenance procedures are recommended to ensure the product maintains its desired appearance and effective performance, as well as ensuring a long life span for the product. The cleaning regime will depend on traffic volume over the entrance system, together with the level of soil in areas prior to the entrance. If the entrance system is allowed to become saturated with dirt and debris it will prove more difficult to restore. Regular cleaning appropriate to soiling is therefore recommended.
