Entrance matting systems are important for the safety of visitors, indoor air quality, maintenance and the aesthetics of a building.

Entrance matting is one of the first things visitors see when entering a building. COBA Africa, part of the COBA International Group, gives some pointers on why it is important to install entrance matting systems and walk-off mats to commercial, institutional and residential buildings.


Entrance matting systems are designed to provide traction, even in wet conditions, which is reducing the risk of slip-and-fall accidents. This is particularly important in areas with heavy foot traffic, such as malls and shopping centres.

Air quality

Walk-off mats prevent dust, dirt and other pollutants from entering a building. This is especially important for hospitals and laboratories, which house sensitive equipment, where even small amounts of dust or contaminants can have serious consequences.


The installation of a proper entrance matting system can save up to R100 000 a year by:

  • Reducing the amount of cleaning required.
  • Reducing maintenance costs.
  • Extending the life of flooring and other surfaces.


Walk-off mats are available in a variety of colours and styles, can be customised to match the decor of the building and can include a logo. This enhances the overall aesthetics of the entrance area, creating a welcoming and professional environment.

Choosing the right entrance matting system for your building according to the estimated footfall can be a daunting task, but the team at COBA Africa is available to assist. Contact COBA Africa today to find the right matting solution for your building.
