Esplanade 8000 has been specially developed for use in both interior and exterior environments subject to heavy foot and heavy wheeled traffic, such as shopping centres, airports and railway stations.

Available in 12mm and 18mm thicknesses and in open and closed constructions, the new matting system comprises silver anodised aluminium scrapers and rigid PVC-u carriers, incorporating either heavy scraper yarn carpet wipers made from 100% solution dyed nylon (in a choice of three colours – Orca, Shark and Marlin) for extremely effective moisture and dirt removal, or black PVC wipers for scraping off dirt, all joined together using stainless steel threaded bars.

Each wiper colour option has a light reflectance value (LRV) to allow visual contrast with adjacent surfaces to be achieved, in line with Approved Document M of The Building Regulations and BS8300:2009+A1:2010.

Rachael Robertson, Matting Product Manager for Gradus, said: “Esplanade 8000 is an incredibly durable matting system ideal for a variety of commercial applications where a heavy duty solution is required.

“The new primary barrier mat is resistant to bleach solutions making it easy to clean and maintain, and can be manufactured to most shapes and sizes as well as being available on the five-day manufacturing service. Rigorously tested to ensure suitability for use, Esplanade 8000 also achieves a low risk of slip using the HSL ramp test for slip-resistance.”

Gradus offers a full supply and fit service for primary barrier matting. For further information on Esplanade 8000, please contact Gradus Technical Support on 01625 428922 or visit www.gradusworld.com.
