Your building entryways tell a story to your clients, workers, and visitors. Can it be a welcoming, secure story? Or is it a tale of danger, ugliness, and neglect? Installing top-notch entry mats for office buildings constructed of tough, appealing floor mat material tells the world that the company cares about security and a fantastic first impression.
Selecting the best commercial interior or exterior entrance mat is more than a quick Google search. Vital things like the mat’s ability to trap and eliminate grime, how nicely it may minimize falls and slides, in addition to its durability and ease of maintenance must be considered to optimize your entry mat plan.
Heavy Duty Entrance Mats Reduce Tracking Dirt Inside
Studies show 85 percent of dirt and grime walks into your building on pedestrians’ feet. Installing 15-feet of entry matting can neutralize 75% of this mess. That means less work for custodians and a more attractive interior. Also, tracked particles may increase wear and tear on inside carpets.
Proper mat placement is not only a benefit to office cleanliness but also, but it will also help preserve strict industry standards. The American Society of Testing Materials’ specifications for building design and construction conditions:
“Building entrances shall be provided together with mats or runners, or other means to remove foreign particles and other contaminants in the base of pedestrian footwear. Mats should be supplied to minimize foreign particles that may become harmful to pedestrians especially on hard smooth floors, from being monitored on floors.”
