The Broadway shopping centre sits in the heart of Bradford City Centre. Anchored by M&S and Debenhams it has over 80 retailers, including a selection of coffee shops and restaurants. The leisure offer at the Centre has recently been expanded with the inclusion of a six screen Light Cinema.

Gradus’ Esplanade 6000 primary barrier matting with Boulevard 6000 wipers in Nightfall was installed at five different entrances to the complex, providing an ideal matting solution for such a busy retail and leisure environment.

Esplanade 6000 features 100% solution dyed nylon wipers providing excellent soil and moisture retention whilst the patterned design helps to disguise the effects of soiling. 

Dave Downes, Deputy Centre Manager at The Broadway, said: “We needed to specify a durable matting solution that could cope with the high number of daily visitors which we experience at The Broadway. We are delighted with the standard of the new matting.  It gives the entrances a sleek, modern and professional appearance, creating a welcoming first impression to visitors.” 

Karen Burman, Marketing Product Manager for Gradus, comments: “Barrier matting forms the start of the journey through a building.  Our systems help to reduce the amount of tracked-in dirt and moisture, which reduces the risk of slips and trips caused by wet flooring.  

“Esplanade 6000 was the perfect solution for The Broadway shopping centre as it is a durable matting system designed to withstand heavy foot and wheeled traffic which helps to provide an inclusive environment for all visitors.” 

Gradus offers a five-day manufacturing service and a full supply and fit service for primary barrier matting. For further information please contact Gradus Technical Support on 01625 428922 or visit
