TRAGEDIES Heronrib barefoot matting, manufactured in the UK by the matting division at Plastic Extruders

Ltd, is being used to keep the local swimming and water polo teams safe from slipping accidents at a swimming pool in Athens, Greece.

Greek flooring Plastex distributor, Beredimas Safety Floors, recommended Heronrib as the perfect barefoot slip resistant solution. The matting has been laid in the locker

rooms and the hallway just outside the shower area to protect users walking barefoot on the wet, slippery, marble flooring.

Heronrib has a C Classification for slip resistance surface under DIN 51097 and an open grid, two layer construction with channelled underbars, which guarantees a dry surface is maintained even in the most trafficked wet areas. Additionally, its non-porous PVC sections and impregnated anti- microbial and anti-fungal additives ensure permanent barefoot hygiene.


INTO SPOTLIGHT fter the successful introduction of Black Mamba Gloves in 2012, Fortress Distribution once again demonstrated its ability to introduce leading-edge PPE brands to the UK
