Exhibition Halls, Civic Offices, Museums, Theatres, Event Areas

From grand exhibition halls to noble museums and opulent theatres, public buildings must stand up to both potentially high traffic and the critique of the public eye. We keep the desired character of your building in mind, alongside safety and performance requirements, to find you the perfect INTRAsystems solution for your building.

Being areas of public focus, safety, performance and the aesthetics of any entrance matting is paramount. Traffic levels vary between locations, so careful consideration of the most appropriate matting system must be taken.

Access for disabled persons needs to be safe and easy, and suitable matting should be considered for areas with wheeled access, ensuring the matting extends in travel direction across a distance that is greater than the circumference of an average wheelchair’s wheel.

Matting For Public Buildings

Specification Guidelines

System Specification
Hardwearing material such as aluminium or PVC, with high performance inserts. External matting recommended with rubber inserts, combination rubber/fibre inserts within circular doors etc, polyamide fibre inserts internally.
Matwell Size
Matwells should cover the full width of the entrance doors and recommended to extend between 5-8m in the traffic direction. Where matwell size is restricted, surface bonded high performance fibre can be considered for increased performance.
Volume of Traffic
High to extreme wear: with concentrated traffic flow during peak periods/event days, etc.
Type of Traffic
Heavy wear – foot traffic / wheelchairs / mobility scooters, etc.
External Environment
Often exposed areas with hard surfaces – prevention of moisture ingress is primary.
Internal Environment
Effective soil & moisture removal for protection of internal floor finishes and the prevention of slips on hard floors due to surface moisture.
