Railway & Bus Stations, Airports, Ports

These are areas with extreme traffic levels where a high performing and heavy-duty Entrance Matting system is essential to ensure safety. This sector includes some of the most demanding areas for the use of Entrance Matting, with consistently high traffic flow and heavy wheeled items.

Internal floor surfaces are often smooth, hard terrazzo for ease of cleaning – it is therefore essential that the Entrance Matting absorbs & removes maximum levels of moisture to prevent slips and falls. A combination of rubber and polyamide fibre inserts offer an excellent solution, providing longevity and optimum moisture absorption, even in periods of intense traffic and inclement weather.

Cleaning and maintenance routines are often restricted to short but concentrated periods, and it is therefore important that the matting can be quickly and thoroughly cleaned to maintain ongoing performance & efficiency.
