Regardless of the season, commercial entryways are areas where accidents are just waiting to happen. For instance, during rainy seasons, moisture creeps through open doorways and turns floors into safety hazards, creating potential liabilities for businesses. We, the Rubber Flooring Experts, have an affordable solution for these kinds of problems: carpet and rubber entrance mats! We offer rubber backed carpet mats in a variety of designs and colors that can be placed in indoor entryways to prevent slips and serious injuries all year long. Our door mats and runners are anti-slip, weather-resistant, and customizable for commercial entryways of different sizes!
Our entrance matting products are made using two different materials: carpet and rubber. Many entrance mats use rubber for its durability, anti-slip safety, anti-fatigue comfortability, and weather-resistant capabilities. In its own way, rubber is a kind of wonder material that is very well suited to flooring applications. Entrance mats that are made either partially or entirely from rubber bring a superior level of surface protection to an area that is hard to find from other materials. While the majority of our matting is made with rubber, some of them also feature a surface made from carpet fibers. Carpet is used in our door mats and runners as a top surface material. Usually, the carpet layer goes on top of a rubber or vinyl backing. The reasons behind the use of carpet are both functional and cosmetic. Carpet is very practical for scraping dirt off boots and other footwear, as the fibers of the material can flush out and trap unwanted outdoor debris from incoming footwear. At the same time, carpet also helps to enhance the visual aesthetic appeal of an area, because entrance mats with carpet fibers are available in a variety of different colors and can thus blend into a variety of color schemes.

Rubber entrance mats are cost-effective, durable, and add traction to slick commercial entrances. Hard floors like wood, vinyl, and tile flooring can be slippery even in dry conditions, causing fall accidents. Factor in a spring rain shower to make the floor even more slippery, and you’re asking for trouble! You can prevent slippery floor situations by installing a commercial door mat made of rubber in any doorway or entrance area with high foot traffic. The texture of rubber produces a high level of friction against human skin, such as feet on top of a rubber mat. This friction helps to keep a person safe, stable, and upright on their feet, and greatly minimizes the chance of them suffering an accident as the result of a slip. In fact, rubber produces even higher levels of friction against other rubber surfaces, such as the rubber soles of most footwear. This makes rubber an excellent safety material for entrance mats, since people stepping on entrance mats are more likely to be wearing footwear. Rubber is a unique material due to the fact that it can maintain this level of anti-slip traction even when it is wet.
Natural friction isn’t the only characteristic that makes rubber door mats and runners a smart safety solution. While rubber has a high coefficient of friction even in wet conditions, it has another feature that makes it great for wet conditions: Being water resistant, rubber can help prevent the formation of harmful microbial byproducts like mold and mildew. When left unchecked for long periods of time, excess levels of water can cause mold and mildew to develop. These can be harmful to human health and should be prevented. Fortunately, rubber entrance mats do not allow for the growth of any such microorganisms on them.
Many of our door mats and runners are also extremely weather resistant, which makes them vital during inclement weather seasons. Since many of our commercial door mat products are made with recycled rubber tires, they exhibit the same all-weather durability that keep your car tires rolling for thousands of miles in spite of the obstacles that “Mother Nature” may throw in the way! Recycled rubber not only resists moisture from rain and precipitation, but also harsh UV rays that could potentially cause discoloration and cracking in other materials. Due to their resistance to weather and other outdoor conditions, our rubber door mats and runners can function for a long time before needing to be replaced.
Whether placed inside or outside, entrance mats can add to the aesthetic style of a commercial entryway. Our rubber door mats and runners come in a variety of patterns and textures, which can subtly affect a person's first impression of a business when placed at the front entrance. For indoor areas, we offer carpet mats that have different color and pattern options, allowing you to choose a commercial door mat with the design that best fits the desired theme of your business. For outdoor entrances, some of the rubber mats we provide are designed with a cast-iron appearance, which adds a touch of elegance to the area. There are a multitude of different tastes and preferences out there, and we aim to provide as many aesthetic options to our customers as we can.
Outdoor entrance mats can be purchased in a variety of custom length rolls and sheets, making them easily available in many sizes. They are also easy to install in the entrances of any business establishment. Purchase rubber door mats and runners according to the dimensions of your business entryway, and then secure them to any existing concrete or wood surface with simple double-sided carpet tape. No pain, no mess, and no hidden costs! Trust the Rubber Flooring Experts and invest in a tough, slip-resistant commercial door mat to protect your customers and your business.
