Heavy duty commercial entrance mats are an essential first step to a cleaner building. Heavy duty entrance mats will stop dirt at the door. Your building stays cleaner and nicer looking. Entrance mats actually lower your cleaning cost. They can also aid in the prevention of costly and painful slip and fall accidents.
Heavy duty commercial mats are for areas with a lot of foot traffic. Commercial entrance mats are heavier and last longer. It's not uncommon for mats like the 117 Heritage Rib™ and 118 Arrow Trax™ mats to last 10 years or more.
Your new commercial matting will work better if you use your mats the right way. There needs to be a mat system that removes dirt and moisture from your feet using different kinds of mats.
First you need an outdoor mat whose job is to remove the heavy dirt, snow and contaminates from the soles of your shoes. These mats are non-absorbent and are usually a scraping mat. Next comes the foyer area with a combination scraping and drying mat. This mat removes the finer particles of dirt and snow, etc. and begins the drying process. Finally the indoor mat finishes the drying process. If you can't use this many mats make sure the interior mat is as long as possible.
