Esplanade 1000 has been specially developed for use in internal applications with medium foot and trolley traffic, such as high street shops, offices and schools. 

The new matting system incorporates an aluminium base, available in open or closed construction and 12mm or 18mm thicknesses, with carpet wipers made from solution dyed nylon material, thus making it effective in moisture and dirt removal. 

Esplanade 1000 is available with a choice of four wipers, which have all been awarded the highest A* BREEAM rating. Plus, each 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, Product Manager for Gradus, said: “Esplanade 1000 is a durable yet low-maintenance matting system ideal for a variety of commercial applications where a cost-effective solution is required. 

“Meeting Approved Document M, BS8300 and BS7953:1999 guidelines, the new primary barrier mat incorporates solution dyed nylon wipers to remove water and debris from soles of shoes and wheeled traffic, whilst retaining its appearance for an aesthetically pleasing flooring solution.”

Gradus offers a full supply and fit service for primary barrier matting. For further information on Esplanade 1000, please contact Gradus technical support on 01625 428922 or visit www.gradusworld.com.
