Entrance Flooring Systems

Entrance flooring is fundamental to modern building design: Preventing walk in grit, dirt, dust and moist, minimizing maintenance costs, protecting a building's flooring and environment from pollutants and dirt.

Your entrance is the first contact with a customer. With both textile (Coral) and rigid (Nuway) Entrance Systems in our portfolio, we can offer an entrance solution for every situation.

    No entrance area is too big, too small or too awkwardly shaped for a Nuway rigid matting system. No level of traffic is too heavy and no level of soiling is too high. Whatever type of rigid engineered system you have in mind, Nuway's experienced sales and technical teams can guide you to a solution tailored perfectly to your needs.

    Ever thought about slowing down or stop to wipe your feet when you walk into a store, an office, hospital clinic or school, or other public space? Chances are you don't. Most of us just stride on in, which is why it's important to install an entrance flooring product to keep the world outside, outside.

Keep Your Building Clean and Safe

Keep Your Building Clean and Safe

If you really want to keep your building clean and safe, it’s not enough to throw down a mat at the door. In fact, the Health and Safety Executive advises against the use of loose lay mats which they state "can introduce a range of hazards and are not always very effective".

Creating an effective entrance flooring system involves thinking about footfall – the number of people walking in and out in a given period – and walking routes (the directions they take once inside) and applying that information in the design of the entrance area. One of the best ways to plan an entrance flooring system is to think in applications:

Application 1: Outside Use
Any matting placed outside the building entrance is the first line of defence against foot-borne soil, scraping the coarsest dirt from the soles of shoes before they cross the threshold.

Application 2: Inside Use
Moving inside, the next line of defence, is used to remove foot-borne moisture and finer dirt particles.

Application 3: Other Circulation Areas
Other areas in the building also suffer from soil and moisture; reception areas, corridors, walkways, elevators, staircase exits, etc. All these areas will be prone to residual soiling and will benefit highly from a purposely designed Coral entrance mat to absorb this soiling.

Making an Entrance

Entrance flooring systems have a critical safety role to play. Slips, trips and falls made up more than half of all reported major injuries in 2010/2011 (source: RIDDOR) causing suffering and financial loss for individuals, companies and society at large. Wet and dry soiling can both create slip hazards but by taking sensible decisions over flooring surfaces and installing effective entrance matting, the potential for slipping can be dramatically reduced.

A well designed entrance flooring system will prevent dirt and moisture from being tracked in and thereby prolong the life of interior flooring and reduce cleaning, repair and overall maintenance costs.

Research shows that up to 94% of the dirt entering a building is brought in on the soles of shoes and the tyres of wheeled traffic. This wet and dry soiling makes interiors look dirty and unattractive, causes structural damage to interior floor coverings and finishes and creates unnecessary health and safety hazards.

If effective measures are not taken to avoid this problem, the repair and maintenance costs of a typical floor covering over its lifespan could be nine times the cost of the original investment. A well designed entrance flooring system will prevent dirt and moisture from being tracked in and thereby prolong the life of interior flooring and reduce cleaning, repair and overall maintenance costs.
