Famous for its 5000m2 geothermal seawater lagoon, thehealth site attracts 400,000 visitors each year.
In order to provide a safe, slipresistant and comfortable walking surface, Heronrib matting has been laid within the changing rooms, shower areas and on the outside decking which leads to the lagoon.
Heronrib features an open grid vinyl construction with raised profile underbars which help water to drain away easily in all directions. This means that the embossed surface is comfortable to barefoot traffic yet slip resistant. The matting is hardwearing yet comfortable to stand on, while the anti-bacterial and anti-fungal additives ensure it is hygienic. Heronrib is also resistant to extremes of temperature as well as to the natural, health-giving salts, silica, sulphurs and chemicals which are present in the lagoon water.
