Where to use?

Where should I use Coral entrance flooring?

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 a good entrance flooring 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.

We have defined 3 entrance zones to plan in your entrance flooring solution:

Application 1: Outside use Coral grip
Any matting placed outside the building entrance is the first line of defense against foot-borne soil by scraping the coarsest dirt from the soles of shoes before they cross the threshold.

Application 2: Inside use Coral classic, Coral duo, Coral brush
Moving inside, the next line of defense is used to remove moisture and finer dirt particles from all feet entering the building.

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

Save money by using an entrance floor

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 floor covering over its lifespan could be 9 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.
