Commercial Entrance matting – and its selection – is a critical part of designing an entrance, and whilst cheap throw-down matting does work to some extent, it can never come close to an effective, permanent entrance matting solution.
Read on to learn why commercial entrance matting supplied by Dublin based MLF Flooring is always your best option:
1. Improved Safety
Whilst throw-down mats generally have a grippy surface on the back to (try to) anchor the product in place slightly, they are still prone to bunching or curling up, causing a potential trip hazard. Permanent entrance matting is much more stable, and is usually either installed in a recessed matwell, or surface fixed to the floor, meaning they won’t move as traffic moves across them, reducing the likelihood of tripping accidents.
2. Reduced Tracked-in Dirt & Debris
Permanent entrance matting
generally offers a better scraping and drying performance, because the carpet inserts are usually made of a deeper, more abrasive pile. This helps to reduce building maintenance costs, and reduce the likelihood of a slip or trip accident beyond the entrance.
3. Reduced Cleaning & Maintenance
As mentioned previously, permanent entrance matting generally removes more dirt and moisture from the soles of feet and wheelchairs, gathering dirt beneath the surface of the carpet, or in the matwell to be easily removed later, saving time and money.
4. Better Indoor Air Quality
Throw-down mats generally collect dirt and particulates on the surface of the mat, which – when the mat is saturated – can be dispersed into the air as pedestrians walk across it, or if someone picks it up to move it. Permanent entrance matting traps and collects dirt particles underneath the mat, preventing dispersal into the air.
5. Enhanced first impression
Throw-down matting never looks as good as a permanent entrance mat, suffering from curled corners, bunching and movement away from the desired drying area. Permanent entrance matting provides a fixed, stable and aesthetically pleasing solution to tracked-in dirt and moisture. Permanent entrance matting can generally be customised to suit the aesthetics of the building, school, or store it’s being placed in. Many different colours, styles, materials and finishes are available to suit your design needs.
