Our Stages Three Step Matting System is the perfect combination of indoor, foyer and outdoor entrance mats built into a fool proof matting system. This is an easy to use three step entrance matting system designed to stopping dirt, grime and moisture from entering your building. Stages Entrance System is part of the OptiMA Green Product Line.
The Stages™ system is based on the 15' rule. What is "The 15' rule"? It is estimated that a total of 15 feet of matting is required to remove the majority of dirt and moisture from foot traffic. This allows each foot to make contact with the matting at least 3 times ensuring that the majority of soil will be stopped at the entrance. You accomplish this best when you combine three different types of mats:
Step 1: The first is the outdoor scraping mat that removes large debris, snow, sand and slush off the bottom of the shoe.
Step 2: The second step is the foyer mat, a combination of a scrape and drying mat to remove smaller debris and start the drying process.
Step 3: The final step mat goes in the lobby. This mat is the drying mat that finishes the drying process.
Did you know?! 70% to 80% of interior dirt and soil is brought into the facility from foot traffic. It costs four to five times more to remove dirt from inside the building than it does to stop it at the door. Think about the cost of good quality entrance mats versus the last time you had your carpets cleaned or your tile floors refinished.
