Gallant Wall System: Moving Beyond Flooring

The Matworks is continuously looking for ways to address pain points with our customers, oftentimes not related to flooring but rather other areas of retail operations. One such example is our recent innovation of the Gallant Wall System. This alternative to drywall offers a range of flexibility rarely found in commercial applications.

Why should a retailer consider the innovative Gallant Wall system? Here are the top reasons why we are testing this product and anticipate more interest from customers:

• Easier to Install: Can be installed by one person where drywall requires at least two people to hold it in place.

• Faster Installation: Lead installer with 30 years of drywall experience indicated that the wall at the test site (a national discount retailer with more than 11,000 locations) would have taken three days to install drywall versus the one day it actually took to install the Gallant Wall system.

• Handling & Storage: Drywall requires heavy machinery, more manpower and takes up more space to store. Gallant Wall system arrives on a crate that can easily be moved around by a single person using a forklift.

• Gallant Wall is a finished product. Simply install and done. Eliminates
patching, taping, sanding and painting.

• Does not require special temperature conditions to be installed while drywall requires water and appropriate temperature conditions for the drywall compound.

• Strong and Durable Product: Eliminates plywood framing construction typically needed for pharmacies, cash rooms, and other special rooms.

• Reduces waste since the cut panels are reused at the ends.

Here’s a quick comparison of drywall vs. Gallant:

New Product Spotlight: Pronto Porcelain

Pronto Porcelain, a newly introduced product by The Matworks, offers all the benefits and features of porcelain – durable, beautiful, water resistant – but without the installation headaches. This highly innovative product requires no grout, no mortar and no waxing and can be installed in one day for most surfaces.

Pronto’s wide planks offer the appearance of wood and the patented tongue and groove interlocking system eliminates grout lines, giving a more realistic and luxurious look. With a porcelain top and waterproof composite bottom, this product is flexible and incredibly easy to maintain. Because there is no grout or adhesive, these porcelain planks can be removed and re-installed should the need arise.

Pronto is currently available in four colors: dark brown, light brown, grey, white.

Quality is in the Details: Hand Assembled Walk-Off Mats

Since its inception in 1966, the Matworks has focused on delivering quality products and services to our customers while adopting the latest innovations and technologies to improve and enhance our offerings.

One such example is the attention to detail and craftsmanship we employ when creating rubber edged walk-off mats. These mats are custom cut, edged and sewn by hand in our facility. Each mat is given individual attention and inspected by our knowledgeable staff, many of which have been with us for more than 20 years.

Edges - UncutHand sewn edgingStitched edgingEdges Hand Glued

While ensuring a high-quality product is our primary goal, this approach also offers the customer a high level of flexibility in sizes, configurations and backing types. Unlike mass-produced mats, we can determine the right edging and bevel needed for a given application and customize a tailored solution. This is typically much faster than ordering from the manufacturer and gives us control over the quality of the output.

Maintaining these high standards for our products is something we stand by and will continue as our business grows and evolves.
