Why choose Entrance Flooring?
Entrance flooring systems play a critical safety role in modern life. Did you know that slips, trips and falls on the same level make up 29% of non-fatal injuries each year (source: Health and Safety Executive - Kinds of accident in Great Britain, 2019)? Each incident can cause financial loss and suffering for individuals, companies and wider society. While dry or wet soiling can create slip hazards, looking sensibly at flooring surfaces and installing effective entrance matting means the potential for slipping can be reduced dramatically.
The Equality Act and Health and Safety legislation impose a duty of care on those who manage and own public buildings. This imposes an obligation to prevent interior floor surfaces becoming hazardous, with loose lay mats and coir not recommended.
The WELL Building Standard® recommends using entrance matting as a key tool to minimise pollutants entering the building.
