The Gate is a premier leisure complex with a wide range of restaurants and bars, as well as a casino.  It has recently undergone a major refurbishment that includes a brand new lobby area that completely changes the entrance by leading visitors further inside the building.

As part of The Gate’s £3.5 million investment programme, Gradus’ Esplanade 6000 primary barrier matting in closed construction with Boulevard 6000 wipers in Nightfall was installed at various entrances to the complex, providing an ideal matting solution for such a busy leisure and retail environment.

Paul Staines, Site Services Manager for The Gate’s refurbishment said: “The Gate welcomes over eight million people to its facilities each year so we needed to specify a durable matting solution that could cope with the demands of this heavy traffic environment.

“We are delighted with the standard of the new matting installed by Gradus.  It gives the entrance a sleek, modern and professional appearance to visitors entering The Gate.”

Karen Burman, Marketing Product Manager for Gradus, comments: “Esplanade 6000 in closed construction was the perfect solution for The Gate as it is a durable matting system designed to withstand heavy foot and wheeled traffic.

“Barrier matting forms the start of the journey through a building.  Our systems help to reduce slip accidents caused by wet floors and help to maintain the aesthetics of surrounding floorcoverings by reducing the amount of dirt and moisture tracked in from foot and wheeled traffic.  This in turn, reduces maintenance costs and prolongs the life of the surrounding floorcoverings.”

“A well-specified barrier matting system will not only increase public safety but will also enhance the appearance of the entrance by creating a clean and welcoming first impression.

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
