EMS were delighted to be asked to manufacture and install entrance matting for an entrance area within the prestigious Wimbledon Tennis Club grounds at the beginning of 2017. We were able to perfectly match the iconic dark green and purple colours of Wimbledon by using the new 003 multi-directional polypropylene infill. Shown below is a sample of the Evergreen Debris Channel entrance matting system with solid aluminium grid system and 003 md emerald green and purple infills. Due to the heavy use in this entrance area and the fact that we had the perfect colours for their club within this range of entrance matting, we advised The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club to choose this heavy duty polypropylene with its bobble, honeycomb texture and multi-directional properties. This is perfect entrance matting solution for heavy footfall from any direction.
