Make Secondary Entrance Matting a First Thought

Make Secondary Entrance Matting a First Thought

Although many specify a primary entrance mat without hesitation, fewer consider a secondary entrance mat.

While we agree a primary mat is vital to tackle the bulk of dirt and moisture, it rarely removes all of it. Secondary matting is a good option to continue to remove these foreign elements and preserve the appearance of internal floorcoverings.

Perhaps more importantly, where entrance mats lead onto surfaces such as terrazzo, it's versatile enough to serve as a sure-footed pathway during wet weather. 

In some circumstances, such as in a small building where it is not always possible to install the recommended amount of matting, secondary matting can also be used as a stand-alone solution. 

As well as at entrances, secondary matting can also be used in other circulation areas of a building that experience heavy traffic such as such as canteens and lift lobbies.

A well-designed entrance flooring system will pay dividends in terms of reducing cleaning and maintenance costs, improving health and safety for building users as well as creating a professional and welcoming entrance.
