Nine years ago, I joined Sterling Supplies and thought mats are mats and if you have seen one, you’ve seen them all… With a company full of matting gurus and decades of experience, I quickly learned that there is much more to matting.
It’s interesting that one of the last elements to go into a building’s interior design is one of the first things a person sees when they enter. Commercial entrance matting is often excluded from the design process. So when it’s time to turn over the building, the facilities manager will contact their matting supplier?
People entering a building don’t often stop to wipe their feet so it’s important that an entrance mat is deep enough to ensure there are enough contacts between the entry matting and the soles of shoes to minimise the amount of dirt carried into the building.
