Entrance matting

Stop dirt in its track

Entrance matting is fundamental to modern building design. A well-designed entrance flooring system will prevent dirt and moisture from being tracked in and thereby prolongs the life of interior flooring, reducing cleaning & maintenance costs and the potential for slip injuries.

About entrance flooring

Why entrance flooring?

A lot of time and money is spent on the visual appearance of a building.
It is often forgotten that the visual appearance can only be retained when the floor stays clean and undamaged. Keeping your building floors clean and keeping your visitors safe is key to prolong the life of interior flooring, reduces cleaning & maintenance costs and the potential for slip injuries.

A well-designed entrance flooring system will:
● Reduce the risk of slip injuries
● Prolong the life of the interior floor finish
● Reduce cleaning & maintenance costs

Where to use entrance matting?

Where should I use Coral entrance matting?

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 defence 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, Coral interior
Moving inside, the next line of defence 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.

Choose the right entrance matting system

When choosing the correct entrance flooring system for your building, there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration. First of all, the location of the building determines the type of dirt and moisture the EFS needs to combat, secondly there is the expected footfall, followed by the type of traffic (e.g. business people, school children) and finally, the size of the entrance area.

The good news is that for every factor or consideration, there is a Coral product that’s perfect for the job.

We have defined 3 entrance zones.
For each zone we offer a selection of products that best fit the entrance area.
Zone 1: External primary matting
Zone 2: Internal primary matting
Zone 3: Circulation zone matting
