Choosing entryway systems to maximize guest impressions

Entryways are one of the most important areas of a building. Did you know that 70 percent to 90 percent of the soil entering a building is “walked in” through the front door? Shockingly, this can total as much as 24 pounds by just 1,000 people when a matting system is not installed.

We’re excited to share our expertise on how to create an inviting atmosphere that not only offers superior functionality, but also leaves a long-lasting impression for customers, employees and visitors. Below are six tips for making decisions on choosing entryway matting for your space. 

·     Price - Of course, price is important, but the life cycle and total cost of ownership should also be taken into consideration as well.

·     Functionality - Each entryway needs to be assessed individually to identify the best solution. Be sure that your entryway system can handle the traffic coming through the door. 

·     Safety - The use of a safe and secure entryway system is a compelling reason to prevent unnecessary injuries resulting from slips and falls, as well as the resulting liabilities.

·     Durability - Properly engineered entryway products are specifically developed to serve as soil and moisture barrier systems. They stop, hold and hide soil and moisture.

·     Aesthetics – Choose an entryway matting system that enhances – and not detracts from - your building’s interior and exterior aesthetics. 

·     Service – Careful consideration should be given to the required maintenance and cleaning cycles. This will help prolong the longevity of your entryway matting.
