“The INTRAsystems matting installed in our new facility provides a brilliant first impression to anyone who visits AberInnovation. The tessellating system matches the on-brand décor used throughout the buildings and provides a warm welcome from the moment visitors arrive.”
– Phil Ellis, Equipment and Services Manager

 

As a world-leading facility within the biotechnology, agri-tech, and food and drink sectors, INTRAshape Hexagon Entrance Matting tiles are the perfect choice for The Aberystwyth Innovation and Enterprise Campus (AKA AberInnovation).

From beehives and basalt columns to insect eyes, graphite, fruit skins and snowflakes, the hexagon is prevalent throughout the natural world.

With strong connections to nature, science and the company’s brand, the hexagon is the ideal decorative motif for the facility.

Inspired by these connections, hexagons are used subtly throughout the building’s design.

 

INTRAshape Entrance Matting Tiles

 

Using INTRAshape tiles, this naturally occurring hexagon formation features in the entrance mat design.

The specification for AberInnovation uses the standard aluminium Hexagon tile with INTRAlux Linear fibre inserts in Anthracite 443 to create an eye-catching design in a classic colour palette.

This heavy-duty looped pile fibre offers 4 litres of moisture absorption per metre and exceptional dirt retention. While the large area of fibre within the INTRAshape tile is ideal for multi-directional traffic, providing an effective solution for busy commercial environments.

Exclusive to INTRAsystems, INTRAshape entrance matting tiles are unique in the market. Available in five tessellating shapes and a variety of sizes, this distinctive entrance matting system offers endless creative possibilities.

Compatible with our complete range of INTRAlux fibre inserts, their aluminium frames can also be anodised to suit your designs.

 

Draft Lobby

 

Situated between the Cambrian Mountains and the Irish Sea, the AberInnovation facility is an exposed site, subject to changeable weather conditions.

To address this, the entrance features a sizeable draft lobby which is filled with the hexagonal INTRAshape tiles.

With the lobby measuring 3272mm front to back, the entrance mat provides a large walk-off area to ensure the tiled floor beyond remains safe and slip-free.

This exceeds the BS 7953 standard recommendation and WELL Building guidance at 2100mm and 3000m respectively which is advisable for such an exposed location.
