Posted on

There are a wide variety of entrance mats and or matting systems available. In the current culture of insurance injury claims, this is now more important than ever to ensure your entrance, reception and building has the relevant safety matting to protect you from such claims. This should be a particular consideration given high priority in a publicly accessed building.
Both primary and secondary entrance matting can be of vital importance, helping to reduce dirt, wet and moisture from entering a building. Thus, reducing slips, trips and falls.


Businesses and Contractors must be educated in the right systems to fit the project, from the technical requirements of heavy traffic areas, to the newest possibilities offered by the vast number of modern ever growing ranges of brightly coloured products available on the market.

Research tells us that up to 90% of all dirt present on the floor has been walked in from the outside. In addition to causing cleaning and maintenance issues, this can also permanently damage the flooring finish. This backs up the need for a high quality and effective entrance system. Reducing cleaning and maintenance costs in the long run.

How to WOW visitors to your Hotel whilst adding colour and Protecting floors!

Posted on

Slips-Falls are the number one cause of accidents in Hotels, Restaurants and Public Buildings; 70% occur in flat and level surfaces. This can lead to costly claims and unwanted media attention should such claims come to court. With todays technology safe floors are possible but effective maintenance is a must to reduce the staggering slip and fall statistics. 

Hotel Logo Mat

It is of paramount importance that your hotel has high quality floor mats placed throughout the hotel to protect customers, visitors and staff members from slippery surfaces both interior and exterior. Bathrooms, Showers, Pool and Spa facilities all need particular attention.

Every building no matter what the type can benefit hugely from the usage of entrance mats and other protective matting. Such mats cannot only increase Health and Safety levels of a building but the can enhance your hotel interiors with colourful branding that can transform an entrance and add to the interior décor.

Entrance matting can be cost saving also reducing cleaning and maintenance costs by removing a staggering figure of up to 95% of moisture walked into a building.


What Size of Mats?

Careful consideration should be given when deciding on the correct size entrance mat. We @MasterMatting recommend both primary and secondary matting to ensure that feet are fully wiped before entering a building. Depending on which type of matting you chose, the larger the mat the higher the absorption. Forbo Flooring’s Coral range offers a staggering fact that for each m2 of Coral matting placed into an entrance, it can remove up to 5kg of dirt or 6 litres of water!

Coral RX Mats

We have a huge range of interior and exterior mats available in a wide variety of colours, patterns, styles and textures. Hotels are a prime business to use entrance matting to enhance your brand at the entrances and exits with bespoke logo matting. Many Hotels  use logo mats to solidify their brand identity throughout their buildings and add to the wow factor for the guests. Logo mats can use colour to transform interiors from what would otherwise be a dull, often unnoticeable floor space.

Although we do offer printed logo mats, our inset logo mats are handmade from high quality, heavy duty contract entrance matting. This makes our mats superior to the printed counterparts as they are highly absorbent and long lasting material designed for high traffic areas and designed to reduce soiling and moisture from entering a building.
