How Entrance Matting Systems Save You Money in the Long Run

Previously we looked at some of the safety aspects of having an entrance matting system but now we’re going to look at how it will work to save you money in the long run. This may seem a strange point of view, especially when having an entrance matting system installed is not cheap.

However, there are many areas that you will save money from, when you couple this with the safety benefits you will be glad you invested in a good entrance matting system.

Here are some of the areas that will benefit and in turn save you money:

Extended Flooring Life: Entrance matting acts as a barrier, protecting your interior floors from dirt, moisture, and debris. By minimizing the number of abrasive materials walked onto your floors, matting systems reduce wear and tear, delaying the need for expensive repairs or replacements.

We also mentioned this as a safety feature, it can stop the and abrasive materials from being walked in from outside.

As an entrance is also the area that will take a massive amount of footfall it will definitely save your flooring.

Reduced Cleaning Costs: By trapping dirt at the door, entrance mats significantly reduce the amount of dirt and dust that enters the building. This means less frequent deep cleans, saving you on cleaning services and maintenance staff time.
The entrance matting systems at Mats Direct are made to make sure that the dirt stays on them as much as possible and can even be configured for the direction of footfall to make them even more efficient.

Slip and Fall Prevention: Safety is paramount and slips and falls are among the most common workplace accidents. Entrance mats keep floors dry, reducing the risk of accidents and the associated potential for costly litigation or increased insurance premiums.
We mentioned this in our list of safety features, but it also ties in with saving you money. After all, you do not want anyone to slip and fall while inside your business.

Improved Indoor Air Quality: By capturing dust and pollutants, entrance mats improve the air quality within your premises. This can lead to lower healthcare costs and fewer sick days among your staff, boosting productivity and saving money on temporary staffing.
This is a little-known benefit, in the same way that entrance matting systems can help collect the dirt they can also improve the air quality in the building. This is because any smells on people’s feet will be collected with a good entrance matting system.

Brand Image and Aesthetics: First impressions matter, and a clean, well-maintained entrance speaks volumes about your business. Investing in a high-quality matting system can help maintain your brand image, potentially translating into more business and higher profits.

This not only saves you money but is a fantastic way of advertising.

The first thing that people will see is your brand this will cause it to stick in their mind and is a fantastic way of pushing your brand further.

Energy Savings: Mats also act as insulators during colder months, keeping warm air in and reducing the amount of heat escaping through the entrance area. This can lead to a decrease in energy bills.
In 2023-2024 this is a really big deal with rising energy costs, you can save so much money by a simple entrance matting system that provides better insulation

Sustainability and Longevity: High-quality entrance matting systems are durable and have a longer lifecycle than cheaper alternatives. Although the initial investment might be higher, the long-term cost of ownership is lower, as you won't need to replace them as frequently.
