Entrance Dirt Mats

Most of the dirt on the floor that has to be cleaned off is brought in from outside.  And 90% of that can be avoided by effective and correctly dimensioned entrance matting.

The Less Dirt that comes in through the entrance, the lower the maintenance requirements. An efficient dirt barrier dirt barrier system should be based on the three stage principle.  There should be a scraper and nearest the outside, then a grass mat and finally a fibre mat.

To trap and absorb the remaining dirt. the total length of the three mats should ideally be approximately 7-8 metres where possible for heavy traffic entrances.
