Shopping Centres & Retail Parks

With bespoke entrance matting, architectural grilles and creative ceilings, you can give your shopping centre the wow factor. High levels of traffic, especially in peak seasons, demand a matting solution you can trust; with smooth tiled floors in frequent use, absorbent matting is a health and safety mainstay. It also helps to maintain a clean and polished appearance to welcome your shoppers and make the ideal first impression.

A clean visual appearance is valued by all shopping centres, enhancing the centre’s appeal to shoppers and potential retail clients. Longevity of the entrance matting and flooring products and a straightforward cleaning routine underpin these values, and also help to ensure minimum maintenance costs over the long life of the system.

As public safety is of vital importance, high quality and effective entrance matting is essential. Matwell extensions or secure surface mounted options should be considered in areas with identified slip hazards, avoiding loose laid matting where possible, which poses its own risk as a trip hazard.

Specification Guidelines

System Specification
Hardwearing material such as Aluminium or PVC, with high performance inserts. External matting recommended with rubber inserts. Internal matting in a Zonal design: combination rubber / polyamide inserts initially and polyamide fibre inserts to remainder of matwell.
Matwell Size
Matwells should cover the full width of the entrance doors and recommended to extend between 6-10m 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, depending on size/capacity of the centre.
Type of Traffic
Heavy wear: foot traffic / shopping trolleys / wheelchairs, etc.
External Environment
Often exposed areas with hard surfaces – prevention of moisture ingress is primary.

Effective soil & moisture removal for protection of internal floor finishes and the prevention of slips on hard floors due to surface moisture.
