Entrances to commercial buildings, require protection against outside dirt and contamination to ensure their longevity and to minimise unnecessary maintenance costs.

Matting formats

MasterMat offers different solutions for entrances:

  • Customised mats – generally fitted into matwells.
  • Standard sizes – generally loose-lay, with ramp edges to prevent trip hazards.

Three-zone system

Matting systems are designed for a three-zone system. Each zone type is geared to protect against the different types of dirt found in that zone or brought in by pedestrians.

Zone 1Zone 2Zone 3
External area immediately outside the building.Covered area as you enter the building.Area inside the building.
Ultraviolet (UV)-stable and weather-resistant matting of a scraping nature designed to remove small stones, dirt and mud.Typically, a combination of brush, rubber and textile designed to remove additional dirt, dust and some moisture.Final dirt and moisture removal before entering the building.

The ideal solution is to use a combination of the three matting systems, preferably covering a six-to-eight metre length to deliver optimal cleaning. Each zone’s matting should also be carefully maintained to ensure optimal functionality and should be included in the initial specification.

Top tip: MasterMat offers different matting solutions for the three-zone system to provide optimal dirt protection for floors in commercial buildings.
