Flowrider and Heronrib matting
The UK's only double FlowRider® surf simulator has opened at the Retallack Resort & Spa in Cornwall. To provide safety underfoot, Heronrib matting from Plastic Extruders has been installed around the facility to provide a slip resistant surface for surfers, instructors and spectators.
Known as 'The Loop', this exciting water attraction generates a thin sheet of water which flows over a stationary wave allowing users to carve or turn, ride up and slide down the simulated surfing surface.
Heronrib matting is the well-known safety solution for wet areas. Its open grid construction helps water to drain away easily in all directions. This means that the embossed surface remains relatively dry and therefore slip resistant. The matting is very hardwearing yet comfortable to stand on while the anti-bacterial and anti-fungal additives ensure it is hygienic for bare feet. Another important benefit is that the matting is supplied in 10m roll format which reduces the number of seams and thereby minimises the potential for tripping.
The matting is available in several colours and in widths of 50cm, 1m and 1.22m. Samples, information and performance Certificates are readily available from Plastic Extruders Ltd (tel 01268 571116) or visit www.plastexmatting.com
