Logo mats are an important addition to any business, whether big or small. This is because they play a major role in brand promotion and creating a great first impression. Logo mats go beyond serving the basic functions of a standard floor mat, they also enhance your décor in a commercial or industrial setting.

The question is, what type of logo mat should you choose for your business? This depends on where you are placing the mat, the amount of footfall you have, the number of colours or intricacy you require and more. At Mats4U we have 3 types to choose from, Heavy Duty Logo Mats, Superscrape Logo Mats and Coir Logo Mats. This blog aims to guide you to choose the correct type of logo mat for your business.

What drives people into buying mats is the fact they help keep floors clean and dry to reduce risks. Other reasons lie in SPACE. We don’t mean the space that exists beyond planet earth, but the acronym Safety, Protection, Appearance, Comfort and Economical.

There has been a massive shift in food consumption over the last few years. Many people are riding the vegan wave and changing their lifestyle for the better. Citizens across the UK have embraced the plant-based diet when they realised animal welfare and climate change are at stake. In fact, according to The Guardian (2018) the number of vegans in the UK sky rocketed by 350% in 2016, meaning the vegan population has increased from 150,000 to 542,000 in just under a decade. In addition, meat-free food has shot up to 22% between 2013 – 2018, and the growth is set to continue (Source: Mintel, 2019).

The sun was nice whilst it lasted. Seeing the sun shine towards the end of February gave us a glimpse of hope, but all that washed away when the weather changed. Although Spring is on the horizon, we are expecting more showers during March (Source: BBC News, 2019). The sudden weather change has led us to be more cautious about safety. Wet weather results in slippery floors, which could lead to accidents.

The coir mats are one of our top best-sellers. Constructed from highly absorbent coconut fibres, they are most effective in entrance areas, doorways and reception areas. This is due to their coarse texture, and strong scraping capabilities that instantly scrapes mud and moisture off footwear. These naturally powerful mats can lock in large quantities of water and dirt, ensuring that your floors stay clean for a long period of time. To learn more about coir, feel free to read our Where and Why to Use Coir Matting blog or watch the video below to see how to install coir. Below the video will also include a step by step guide.

It’s Valentine’s Day. The most romantic day of the year. The day when chocolates, florists, restaurants and holiday bookings have a dramatic increase in sales. You’ll start seeing stores and supermarkets flood their aisles with a dozen red roses, cute cards, and other Valentine’s Day gifts. What a great money-grabbing occasion! While many couples are celebrating their time together, and others are celebrating singledom, don’t forget your mat needs some love too! Especially entrance mats as they endure the highest volume of foot traffic. If they are loved and taken care of, they will take care of your environment.

You probably don’t go around observing floor mats everywhere you go. Yet here at Mats4U, we do! As sad as that seems, it’s actually quite interesting to see the condition and type of mats used in various places.
