Reduces Dust, Mud and Debris

Commercial entrance mats are the perfect solution when trying to keep your floors clean. Providing staff and clients alike with the opportunity to wipe their feet clean and dry before entering means that dirt, dust, mud and any other debris is trapped. Another benefit of cleaner floors is cleaner air! The less foreign matter there is stuck to your floors, the less bacteria there is in the air, helping to improve overall air quality.

Minimize Slip Hazards

Slipping and tripping can happen to anyone, in fact, it’s rather common. This is exasperated even further when shoes are wet and lacking the necessary grip to stay upright or the flooring is particularly smooth and shiny. Having a textured entrance mat for people to tread on provides traction, helping to remove any excess moisture or debris by gripping the bottom of their shoes when entering. This is helpful in decreasing the likelihood of people slipping and falling, making your floors that bit safer.   

If your entrance experiences a high footfall count, our Waterhog Classic is designed to trap both moisture and dirt within the lower portion of the mat, preventing it from being tracked into your property. It also benefits from a non-slip rubber backing and anti-static qualities, ensuring that it grips even the smoothest of surfaces. A commercial entrance mat can also help to ensure that your business fulfills a duty of care to everyone that enters, preventing accidents in which you could be deemed liable. 

Decorative And Professional

When clients enter your facility for the first time, the last thing you want is for their first impression to be a bad one. A business that looks unkempt and run down rather than fresh, clean and tidy will only leave a sour taste. You want to inspire them to return, ensuring they leave feeling positive about their experience and confident in their decision to invest in your company.


A good quality commercial entrance mat can help to reinforce that feeling of professionalism and aesthetic quality whilst being welcoming to those who visit. They don’t have to be an eyesore either! Entrance mats can actually look rather smart when matched with your interior, creating a polished and put-together feel to your space.

Company Branding

No matter the size of your company, investing in a commercial entrance mat that is adorned with your company branding can leave a strong and lasting impression amongst consumers. A vibrant mat could be used to strengthen your marketing, helping to push your messaging and convert visitors into valued customers. They are the first and last thing that clients see when visiting the premises, so why not take the opportunity to promote your business to everyone that passes by?


Our customised mats are the perfect opportunity to add extra character to your space. You can personalise them with any message or image you like! Our custom entrance mats are very effective in trapping dirt and moisture and are backed, helping them to grip to any surface, safeguarding your floors from slips and dirt!

Prevents Damage To Your Floor

Every time someone walks through your facility, they track dirt, sand, grit and even moisture across your floors which can lead to damage and the surface of your floor becoming worn, if not protected. The more traffic your floor receives, the faster the process.

A well-placed commercial entrance mat helps to protect your floor by removing the excess debris and moisture that causes these problems. It also helps your floor to stay cleaner for longer. Entrance mats can be a long-term and low-maintenance way of keeping your interior feeling clean, fresh and damage free. 

In the long run, this will save you money on cleaning products and maintenance costs, such as replacing your flooring. You also won’t have to steam clean your carpets or refinish and re-polish your hard floors as often.

Bacteria Regulation

You can even invest in commercial entrance mats that are specially designed to work with disinfectants, helping with the regulation of bacteria. These are especially important for facilities that require regular sterilisation such as hospitals or laboratories. Our StepWell OptiBrush Mat can hold up to 4 litres of disinfectant per square metre, and helps to disinfect the soles of shoes and that of wheeled traffic too. These types of mats help stop contaminants from being spread and becoming ingrained in your flooring, helping to maintain a cleaner and safer environment for your visitors, staff and customers alike.
