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.
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!
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.
