Internal or external

Nuway Tuftiguard offers products suitable for external and internal entrances.

Outside, matting will protect from soil and the worst of footborne dirt. Inside, it protects from footborne moisture and fine dirt particles.

Nuway Tuftiguard can be used for internal and external entrances

Reversible?

As it’s double sided, Nuway Tuftiguard can be reversible where supported by the configuration of the entrance mat, effectively doubling its lifespan.

Finishes

With a wide choice of scraper bars and wiper strips, Tuftiguard mats complement all interior finishes.

Scraper bars
As you’d expect, these bars scrape soil from the traffic crossing the mat. With Tuftiguard, scraper bars are available in in a choice of colours, in anodised aluminium, and in bamboo.

Wiper strips
Polyamide fibre and prime rubber remove fine dirt and moisture and can add design and colour to the entrance mat.

Moisture

Removing moisture from shoe soles is essential in preventing slipping on interior surfaces. Selecting double wiper strips will help to remove moisture and is highly recommended for entrances where the mat walking depth is less than 3m.

Removing moisture is important to prevent slips

Considerations
BS8300-2:2018 Section 14.2 states that both natural and artificial sources of lighting should be designed to avoid creating glare, pools of bright light and strong shadows. As with all aluminium matting systems of this type, in very brightly lit or illuminated areas, the strong contrast between light coloured aluminium scraper bars and dark wiper strips can sometimes create a strong visual contrast (and in extreme situations, a strobe effect) which should be prevented. To avoid disorientating pedestrians affected by this type of visual disturbance, consider using Bamboo or coloured anodised scraper bars with a less contrasting wiper strip.
