Barrier Entrance Matting

Entrance Barrier Matting For Reception Areas

Is there a more well-used area in your business than your reception? Entrance areas are typically busy and experience high numbers of people coming in and out. This presents a challenge for many of our customers as they need a hard wearing entrance floor mat solution that both looks great and that still holds up under the pressure of all that traffic.

But we also know that sometimes a full primary entrance matting system can’t be justified. There may be area restrictions, or cost constraints to consider which would make this solution not viable.

In these situations, our high-quality barrier matting entrance carpet is the perfect solution for many of our customers. Available in off the roll cut lengths in various colours, it offers a real value for money alternative to a full entrance door matting system solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I cut my barrier mat to a shape?

Yes you can cut our barrier matting without loosing any integrity of the mat.

The reason for this is that the fabric is moulded into the Rubber backing during the manufacturing process and therefore will not fray when being cut.

How long can we expect these mats to effectively trap dirt and moisture before needing a clean, and how long will they last under high traffic conditions?

There is no definitive answer to this question as it is purely dependent on a number of factors, type of environment, amount of traffic, amount of dirt, is it a wet period weather wise, all these factors will affect cleaning of the matting.

As a general rule a good housekeeping regime should be maintained and any type of matting requires cleaning everyday by vacuuming or brushing depending on mat type. Wet cleaning or washing should be done every 2 weeks.

Barrier matting should last 3-5 years depending on traffic and good housekeeping. 

Do you offer customization options in terms of size, shape, and design, especially if we have unique space requirements or branding elements we would like to include?

We supply oblong, square, circular, semi-circular as standard and semi-curves only in specific sizes.

Should you require any branding please see our logo floor mats for further information.

How effective are the anti-slip and anti-trip features of these mats, especially in wet conditions? What kind of backing options are available to ensure maximum safety on our specific type of flooring?

These mats have been tested for slip resistance and received the National Floor Safety Institute High Traction certificate.

By having Nitrile Rubber backs which means they will always lay flat to floor with either a gripper backing for carpets or a smooth back for hard floors.

Are these mats easy to clean? Given they can be washed at 40 degrees, how frequently would you recommend washing them, and are there any specific cleaning agents or methods you recommend?

These mats can be simply washed in a washing machine every 2 weeks with a neutral detergent, do not use any type of Bleach product and if you have to tumble dry then reduce the temperature to 30 degrees.

How do these barrier matting entrance carpets compare in cost to other primary entrance matting systems? With the 5-year guarantee on the rubber mats, what does the warranty cover?

As primary entrance matting systems are generally first ine defence matwell products and used in very high traffic areas and designed to last a minimum of 5 years with some as much as 12 years or more so there is no real comparison as they are not like for like products.

The 5 year guarantee is against  manufacturing defects and would be replaced completely without cost should they fail.
