Gibson

Champion at capturing sand and absorbing water

The Gibson is our top performer for capturing sand and absorbing moisture in the high-traffic areas of large and mid-size buildings, such as:
• entrances
• stairwells
• pantries
• lifts

Sand dirt that would otherwise get tracked into a building stay on the Gibson. Where no outside mat is available, a mat such as the Gibson is strongly recommended.

The Gibson boasts the highest classification for sand absorption of any of our entrance mats, scoring a 3. And it can absorb as much as six litres of water per square metre.

How? It combines velour absorption segments and linear scraping segments. These make it work like a sandbox, while the velour absorbs all that moisture.

The Gibson is also highly resistant to wear and tear, even under high, intense traffic: in our use classification, it gets a rating of 33.

There’s the option of an s-FLX backing—our revolutionary, eco-friendly alternative to PVC, which
• installs easily
• is 20% lighter than PVC
• takes 30% less energy to make than PVC
• causes 15% less in greenhouse gas emissions
• contains no plasticisers or chlorine
• won’t discolour the subfloor
