What is commercial entrance matting?
An essential requirement for any public building, entrance matting is one of the first architectural elements that visitors will see when entering your facilities. By trapping moisture and debris at the door, commercial entrance matting is essential for public safety and maintaining the cleanliness of your building’s interior.
Compared to your everyday, residential entrance mats, commercial door mats are architecturally designed to ensure a sleek, modern aesthetic and hard wearing durability. Customised to suit the environment, commercial matting solutions sit flush with the surrounding floor surface and are fixed in place to ensure a free flow of foot and wheeled traffic, and the elimination of trip hazards.
How many types of commercial door mats are there?
Broadly speaking, commercial entrance matting can be categorised into two types.
Based on application method
- Recessed entrance matting – Recessed door mats are designed to be installed within a matting well, sitting flush with the surrounding floor. Recessed systems are a popular option for commercial buildings due to their durability and high-end appeal.
- Surface mounted entrance matting – Surface mounted matting is edged and backed for quick, easy installation on top of your existing surface. Providing excellent grit and moisture removal, the tapered edges eliminate potential trip hazards.
Based on format/specification
- Customised entrance matting – From logo features to sizing, shapes and inserts, matting systems can be customised to meet your business’s unique requirements. Bespoke entrance matting has the versatility to suit both new and existing interiors.
- Roll out entrance matting – Easily rolled up for convenient cleaning of dirt and debris, the perfect solution for businesses looking for quick, simple installations and maintenance.
- Modular Tile entrance matting – Offering a soft aesthetic with a plush underfoot feel, tile mats are a cost-effective solution that can be specified to your exact requirements. Individual tiles can be replaced at any time, without the need to replace an entire section.
What is the benefit to using commercial door mats?
Whether it’s for an office, restaurant or entertainment facility, high levels of in and out foot traffic are to be expected for any public building. From presentation through to keeping your building’s interior as clean as possible, commercial entrance mats are a smart and crucial investment that every business should consider.
Benefits of commercial entrance mats
- Enhances your business’s public image
- Creates an aesthetically pleasing entranceway
- Traps dirt and moisture at the door
- Upholds a clean, hygienic appearance throughout your building’s interior
- Reduces your maintenance costs
- Reduces the risk of slips, trips and falls
Furthermore, Safe Work Australia requires businesses to eliminate the risk of slips, trips and falls “so far as is reasonably practicable” – entrance matting plays a huge role in public safety by minimising risk, and saving you from potential costly payouts.
What type of commercial door matting is best for your project?
To choose the appropriate commercial entrance matting system for your project, you will need to:
- Estimate the expected level of foot or wheeled traffic, at any given time
- Research the size and depth of matting required to ensure effective cleaning
- Review the type of matting required – scrape, wipe or staged
- Identify the most common walking routes within your building
- Consider the different entrance zones – outside, inside and other circulation areas
- Outline the aesthetic requirements to complement your building’s entranceway
- Assess the desired longevity
- Define your budget
Once these factors have been considered, you can then design the best system for your entranceway.
