Understand your traffic
Entrance mats don't just have pedestrian traffic going across them, in supermarkets or retail stores they often have to cope with trolleys, cages laden with deliveries and in some instances forklift trucks going across them. So it's important to consider the rolling load capabilities of the entrance matting product you choose.
Consider the traffic direction
An understanding of traffic flow patterns also helps with designing an effective entrance matting system. When pedestrians enter the building, most follow the same path - for example leading them to a reception desk or a staircase - but some will spread in other directions. The entrance matting system should cover all the likely routes of people entering the building.
Consider the zonal approach
Breaking an entrance up into zones is a much more cost effective and efficient solution to entrance matting as each zone requires the entrance mat to do a slightly different job. You don’t always need the full length of your mat to be highly abrasive, only a section needs to be.

Please ensure you are accurate with your measurements, and advise us what measurements you have given us on any templates or drawings you supply us with. Acceptable dimensions can be: The overall finished size of the mat, the size of the mat including the frame, or the size of the mat minus the frame.

Reduce cleaning costs
Cleaning costs of institutions surfaces can be mitigated by the use of the zoning principle. The pits used to store dirt and facilitate maintenance. Installed carpet will be rolled up or arranged in modules to facilitate maintenance operations.
Optimize the capture of dirt
Open mats are extremely effective for capturing dirt. They are ideal in environments subject to dust and weather. carpet rails are perforated to capture dirt in contact with the scraping surface and bring them quickly into the pit. So make sure you have a sufficiently large pit height or shorten your pit maintenance cycles if you opt for openwork mat.
The visual contrast as signage
Long, the use of strong contrasts to alert and inform users about their immediate environment. Applied to the carpet, this rule improves the wiping time and the cleanliness of your establishment. A visible and recognizable carpet more easily invite users to consider your carpet and it wipe their feet.
To comply with standards for disabled
The welcome mat, for compliance, must submit a hard surface so as not to impede the progress of chairs and strollers. So are aluminum rail carpets safe and ideal answer to this problem because their structure gives them rigidity and resistance to rolling loads. When free, adding a ramp is required to facilitate the movement of people with reduced mobility (PRM).
