Since commercial offices usually record substantial footfalls every day and, more importantly, have an image to portray to prospective clients and customers, it is imperative that they keep their premises presentable.

Studies have shown that more than 80% of all contaminants affecting offices a come from the shoes of the people entering these buildings. This is why an Entrance Matting system that enables your visitors to wipe their shoes before entering the building is so critical. In essence, Entrance Matting acts as a barrier against the ingress of foot borne soil and moisture.

So, why is this important?

  • Safety: For a commercial office, slips and trips are number one on the list of things to avoid. On average, they cause 40 per cent of all reported major injuries and can also lead to other types of serious accidents. A good management system can help identify problem areas and ensure sensible measures are implemented to control risks in workplace. Risks such as a wet or contaminated floor can significantly increase the likelihood of slips and trips occurring on hard smooth floor surfaces. By using effective Entrance Matting the prospect of these issues happening is minimised.
  • Cleaning Costs: Keeping the dirt out of the building makes the cleaning quicker and easier therefore reducing the expense of cleaning and maintenance. Intrasystems high quality polyamide secondary sheet fibre has superior moisture absorption capabilities trapping 5.4L/M² . For a commercial office facility having lower overheads can have a direct impact on profits!
  • Protect & Preserve: By creating a barrier against dirt and moisture ingress, not only are cleaning duties reduced but the internal floors last longer. Studies have shown that every time we enter a building we bring in an average of 0.58g of soil, which can damage the internal flooring by scratching the surface which can be visually displeasing.
  • Client & Staff retention: Keeping your building clean, safe and visually attractive is essential for a decent client experience. A wet floor, loose lay matting or a dirty floor when overlooked can have a huge impact on the experience of every visitor.

Knowing what systems to use is crucial in creating an office environment which is both safe and aesthetically pleasing. Call us on 01425 47200 or email us on to find out how we can offer the full Entrance Matting service for your offices.
