Hospitals, Care Homes, Surgeries

Experts in the exacting needs of hospitals, care homes and surgeries, INTRAsystems can provide the hygienic and hard-wearing entrance matting solutions that the healthcare sector demands. Exceptionally durable to cope with high traffic flow, and featuring effective soil and moisture removal, you can be confident that your entrance will be both safe and sanitary for public use.

Hygiene is absolutely critical, in healthcare environments, so entrance matting should be quick and easy to thoroughly clean. It is recommended that matting is pressure or steam cleaned periodically, and a system that is straightforward to remove from the matwell is therefore ideal.

Healthcare settings also experience consistent high traffic flow, often 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Durability and efficiency are therefore also essential functions for a high performance barrier entrance matting system in order to cope with the continued traffic flow.

Matting For Hospitals

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 traffic areas with regular flow 24/7.
Type of Traffic
Heavy wear: foot traffic / wheeled stretchers / wheelchairs, 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.
