Entrance Matting - Domestic Entrance Door Mats & Commercial Entrance Mats

Are you looking for an effective and high-quality entrance mat & commercial mats for your business? Entrance door mats and commercial door mats help make those first impressions count in business and making sure your office floor or commercial unit is presentable and clean is important, especially when it comes to employing talented individuals and inviting business clients to your premises. This is why our high-quality entrance mats are built to make sure those first impressions count.

At Mats4U, we have a wide selection of commercial matting, entrance door mats and entrance matting for both inside and outside use that can help not only transform the look of your office but also help to prevent up to 90% of dirt from entering your building. Having a high-quality commercial door mat or entrance mat at the entrance to your business or office building will encourage employees and visitors to wipe their feet, which in turn helps to reduce the transfer of dirt around your business.

What should entrance matting do?

Entrance matting plays a crucial role in maintaining clean and safe environments in buildings and facilities. Its primary purpose is to effectively manage and control the ingress of dirt, moisture and debris brought in by foot traffic at entry points. Here are the key functions that entrance matting should fulfil:

  1. Prevent dirt and moisture from coming into the building
  2. Hold onto dirt and moisture until it can be cleaned
  3. Stop dirt and moisture from being tracked off the mat
  4. Provide a safe walking surface 

Our Entrance mats serve the purpose of effectively removing dirt and moisture from footwear. We provide a range of high-quality entrance mats suitable for any business or home, with great value for money. With effective scraping capabilities combined with highly absorbent materials, our mats prevent unwanted particles from migrating into your facility, ensuring your premises are safe and clean. 

Outdoor Entrance Mats

An outdoor entrance mat needs to be able to endure harsh weather conditions, from cold and snowy, to hot and sunny. Rubber outdoor mats & matting are very durable and will not crack, split or curl, no matter what the weather condition.

At Mats4U, our outdoor entrance mats are constructed with materials, such as nitrile rubber, to survive all weather conditions. They also have the power to tackle heavy dirt, grit, snow, ice and excess water, ensuring that no unwanted particles are tracked into your premises. Offering you durability and being constructed from hard-wearing nitrile rubber, these mats are guaranteed to last up to 5 years.

For outdoor, an all-rubber mat with raised scrape numbers and drainage holes is the best choice, such as the Value Rubber Scraper Mat with Holes.

Indoor Entrance Mats

The indoor entrance mat is the main entrance mat & matting and in most cases the only entrance mat that businesses and homes opt for. The indoor entrance mat, therefore, must do much of the work in terms of stopping dirt and water from getting into your premises.

For those that only have one entrance mat in place, it is important to invest in one that will perform very well, to save yourself on cleaning costs and reduce slip and fall accidents.

The best choice is an indoor entrance mat with raised sections to wipe and scrape footwear and it should have a fabric top which is able to soak up and contain moisture. A great example is the Waterhog Classic.  You may need to regularly clean this mat so that it doesn’t become saturated with dirt and water. So we advise you to check that the mat is easy to clean.

What size Entrance Mat should I choose?

The Carpet and Rug Institute recommends a minimum of 12-15 feet (3.6 – 4.5m) of entrance matting to remove 90% of tracked-in soil.

Most entrances we come across do not have anywhere near this amount of entrance matting, in fact, the most popular entrance mat size purchased in the UK are 3x5 and 4x6 foot mats.

You can often judge if your current mat is the right length or not by looking a little beyond the edge of the mat. Does it still have wet or muddy footprints beyond the mat? If so,  you can assume that the coverage is not right for the circumstances.

To remove the most amount of dirt and water, and to keep your entrance safe, we recommend that you buy the largest mat that you can for your entrance. People do not wipe their feet, so you want people to take as many steps on your matting as possible, which will help to protect your floors and keep them clean and dry.

 Types of Entrance Mats

  • Rubber Backed vs. Vinyl Backed Entrance Mats – Vinyl backed entrance mats are much cheaper than rubber backed, but there is a reason. Rubber is super durable and suitable for high-traffic areas, whereas Vinyl or PVC is prone to cracking, splitting or curling and can also creep along the floor.

  • Bi-Level vs. Flat Entrance Mats – With bi-level entrance mats, the upper surface scrapes and wipes footwear, and the lower level collects and stores the dirt until cleaner, to avoid it being tracked into the building on the surrounding floors. Single-layer, or flat entrance mats are usually better for drying, however, there is nowhere for the dirt to filter, so it can sometimes be tracked onto the surrounding floors.

  • Cotton vs. Nylon Entrance Mats – Cotton entrance mats are great for mopping up water, however, it can take a long time to dry, so is best for low-traffic areas. In contract, Nylon dries super quickly, and is the preferred choice for busy entrance areas.

Cleaning your Entrance Matting

Keeping your entrance mats clean is paramount for keeping them effective and performing well. They spend all day removing and holding on to dirt and water, so it is important that they are cleaned regularly so that the don’t become overloaded and therefore less effective. Each mat will have different cleaning instructions, check out the cleaning tab on each product for specific instructions.

How long will your Entrance Mat last?

How long entrance matting will last will depend on several factors:

  1. The type of backing – rubber backed mats will always be longer lasting than PVC or Vinyl.
  2. The amount of mat pile – look for the weight of the face fabric, the heavier the better!
  3. The amount of foot traffic – busy entrances will require a more durable mat in order to increase the lifetime.

In addition to this, the better you look after your mat, the longer it will last. Refer to our above point on how to clean your entrance mat.

3 Mats Entrance System

 To get the most out of your mats, using the 3 mat entrance system can provide you extra support in preventing dirt and water from entering your building.

  1. The first step of the system is to have a strong rubber outdoor entrance mat. This mat is the first to come in contact with footwear, so it’s ideal to have a mat that can handle heavy mud, moisture and grit. We recommend our Value Rubber Scraper Mat as a great choice.
  2. As soon as people enter your premises, indoor entrance mats are ideal to remove moderate levels of dirt and water. A great suggestion is our Waterhog Classic, which is bi level constructed and capable of trapping debris within the mat, making sure it doesn’t get transferred into buildings.
  3. Finally, the finishing mat removes the remains off footwear by absorbing moisture and removing finer dirt and dust. Tri Grip Heavy Duty is one of our most popular and performs extremely well as a finishing mat in high foot traffic areas.

Prevent Slips & Trips with Commercial Entrance Mats

Commercial entrance mats are also great at preventing slips and trips as they can help to absorb excess water, which, if allowed to build up in a reception area or office building, is a health and safety issue. Our most effective commercial door mats to absorb water are Waterhog mats. These heavy duty entrance mats are designed for areas of high footfall, such as doorways, corridors and reception areas, they are made with a high-quality water absorbing material that not many other commercial entrance matting can outperform. Stop dirt, grime and water at the door with Mats4U’s entrance door mats and heavy duty entrance matting.

Why are entrance mats important?

Entrance mats play a crucial role in maintaining a clean, safe, and welcoming environment in various settings, including commercial buildings, offices, retail stores, and residential homes. Here are several reasons why entrance mats are important:

  • Dirt and Debris Removal: Entrance mats effectively trap dirt, mud, sand, snow, and other debris from footwear, preventing them from being tracked further into the building. This helps to keep interior floors clean and reduces the need for frequent cleaning and maintenance.
  • Moisture Absorption: Mats placed at entrances absorb moisture from wet shoes, umbrellas, and boots, helping to prevent slip-and-fall accidents caused by slippery floors. This is particularly important during rainy or snowy weather conditions.
  • Protection of Interior Flooring: By capturing dirt and moisture at the entrance, mats help protect interior flooring surfaces such as hardwood, tile, carpet, or laminate from damage, scratches, stains, and premature wear and tear. This can save significant costs associated with floor maintenance and replacement.
  • Enhanced Safety: Entrance mats provide traction and stability for individuals entering the building, reducing the risk of slips, trips, and falls. Mats with slip-resistant backings or surfaces further enhance safety by minimising the potential for accidents, especially in high-traffic areas.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: Mats help prevent outdoor pollutants, allergens, and contaminants from being brought indoors, thereby improving indoor air quality. This is particularly beneficial for individuals with allergies, asthma, or respiratory sensitivities.
  • Professional Appearance: Entrance mats contribute to the overall aesthetic appeal of a building's entrance by providing a clean and welcoming appearance. Customised or branded mats can also reinforce the organisation's branding and create a positive first impression on visitors.
  • Regulatory Compliance: In some industries, such as healthcare or food service, entrance mats are essential for regulatory compliance with health and safety standards. Mats can help prevent the spread of germs, bacteria, and contaminants, contributing to a hygienic environment.

Overall, entrance mats serve as the first line of defence against dirt, moisture, and contaminants entering a building, promoting cleanliness, safety, and comfort for occupants and visitors alike. Investing in high-quality entrance mats is an effective way to protect interior surfaces, minimise maintenance costs, and create a positive impression of the facility.

What materials are entrance mats made of?

Entrance mats are made from a variety of materials, each offering specific properties suited to their intended function and the environment they'll be placed in. Common materials used in the manufacturing of entrance mats include:

  • Coir (Coconut Fiber): Coir mats are made from natural coconut husk fibres and are known for their excellent scraping and dirt-trapping capabilities. They are durable, moisture-resistant, and suitable for outdoor use.
  • Nylon: Nylon mats are durable, resilient, and absorbent, making them effective at trapping dirt and moisture. They are often used in high-traffic areas and can withstand heavy use.
  • Polypropylene (Olefin): Polypropylene mats are lightweight, stain-resistant, and quick-drying, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor use. They offer good scraping and moisture absorption properties.
  • Rubber: Rubber mats are durable, slip-resistant, and weather-resistant, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. They provide excellent traction and drainage capabilities, making them ideal for wet or high-traffic areas.
  • Vinyl: Vinyl mats are durable, flexible, and easy to clean. They are often used in commercial settings and can be customised with logos or designs. Vinyl mats offer good scraping and moisture absorption properties.
  • Microfiber: Microfiber mats are highly absorbent and can hold moisture and dirt effectively. They are soft to the touch and can be laundered for easy cleaning. Microfiber mats are commonly used in residential and commercial settings.
  • Cotton: Cotton mats are soft, absorbent, and comfortable underfoot. They are often used in residential settings or areas with low to moderate foot traffic. Cotton mats may require more frequent cleaning and maintenance compared to other materials.
  • Wool: Wool mats offer natural resilience, durability, and soil resistance. They are soft to the touch and can effectively trap dirt and moisture. Wool mats are commonly used in upscale or luxury settings.

Entrance mats may also feature combinations of these materials to optimise their performance and functionality. For example, a mat may have a rubber backing for stability, a polypropylene surface for scraping, and nylon fibres for moisture absorption. The choice of material depends on factors such as the intended use, level of foot traffic, indoor or outdoor placement, and desired aesthetic.

How do entrance mats trap dirt and moisture?

Entrance mats are designed with features that allow them to effectively trap dirt and moisture brought in on shoes, thereby preventing these contaminants from being tracked further into a building. Here's how entrance mats accomplish this:

  • Scraping Action: Many entrance mats have textured surfaces or raised patterns that create a scraping action when shoes come into contact with them. These ridges or bristles dislodge dirt, mud, and debris from the bottom of shoes, helping to remove large particles before they can be tracked indoors.
  • Absorbent Materials: Entrance mats are often made from absorbent materials such as coir (coconut fibre), nylon, polypropylene, or microfiber. These materials have the ability to absorb moisture from wet shoes, umbrellas, and boots, preventing water from being tracked onto interior floors.
  • High Pile or Looped Fibres: Mats with high pile or looped fibre construction provide additional surface area for trapping dirt and moisture. The fibres act like tiny sponges, wicking moisture away from shoes and capturing dirt particles within their structure.
  • Dual-Zone Construction: Some entrance mats feature dual-zone construction, with a rough-textured zone for scraping and an absorbent zone for moisture retention. This two-step process effectively removes dirt and moisture from shoes, enhancing the mat's performance.
  • Rubber Backing: Many entrance mats have rubber or vinyl backing that provides stability and prevents the mat from slipping or sliding on the floor. The backing also helps to trap dirt and moisture underneath the mat, preventing it from seeping through to the floor below.
  • Water-Dam Borders: Some entrance mats feature raised borders or edges that create a "water dam" to contain moisture within the mat. This prevents water from spilling onto surrounding floors and helps keep entryways clean and dry.
  • Regular Maintenance: Regular maintenance, such as vacuuming, sweeping, or shaking out the mat, helps to remove trapped dirt and debris, keeping the mat's surface clean and maximising its effectiveness in trapping contaminants.

By employing these design features and maintenance practices, entrance mats effectively trap dirt and moisture at building entry points, helping to maintain cleanliness, safety, and indoor air quality within the premises.

How do entrance mats contribute to safety?

Entrance mats contribute to safety in several ways:

  • Slip and Fall Prevention: Entrance mats help reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents by providing a stable surface for walking, especially in areas where floors may be wet or slippery due to rain, snow, or spills. Mats with slip-resistant backings or textured surfaces enhance traction and stability, minimising the likelihood of slips and falls.
  • Moisture Absorption: Mats placed at building entrances absorb moisture from wet shoes, umbrellas, and boots, preventing water from being tracked further into the building. By keeping floors dry, entrance mats help reduce the risk of slips and falls caused by wet surfaces.
  • Dirt and Debris Removal: Entrance mats effectively trap dirt, mud, sand, and other debris from footwear, preventing these contaminants from being tracked indoors. By keeping floors clean and free of debris, mats reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls caused by obstacles or loose particles on the floor.
  • Enhanced Visibility: Brightly coloured or reflective entrance mats can improve visibility in dimly lit areas, alerting individuals to potential hazards and promoting safe navigation through the space. Mats with contrasting colours or patterns can also help delineate pathways and guide foot traffic, reducing the risk of collisions or accidents.
  • Alertness and Awareness: Placing mats with messages or symbols indicating caution or safety reminders at building entrances can help promote alertness and awareness among occupants and visitors. Messages such as "Watch Your Step" or "Caution: Wet Floor" serve as visual cues to encourage cautious behaviour and reduce the risk of accidents.
  • Regulatory Compliance: In some industries, such as healthcare, hospitality, and retail, entrance mats are essential for regulatory compliance with health and safety standards. Mats help prevent slips, trips, and falls, which are leading causes of workplace injuries, and demonstrate a commitment to providing a safe environment for employees and customers.

Overall, entrance mats play a crucial role in promoting safety by reducing the risk of slip and fall accidents, maintaining clean and dry floors, enhancing visibility and awareness, and facilitating compliance with safety regulations. Investing in high-quality entrance mats and implementing proper maintenance practices can help create a safer environment for everyone in the building.
