Regardless of the season, commercial entryways are areas where accidents are waiting to happen. During rainy seasons, moisture creeps through open doorways and creates safety hazards for businesses. 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 entryways of different sizes!
Our entrance matting products are made using two different materials: carpet and rubber. While the majority of our matting is made with rubber, some of them utilize a carpet surface. Rubber is used for its durability, anti-slip safety, anti-fatigue comfort, and weather resistant capabilities. In it’s own way, it 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 in other materials. Carpet, on the other hand, is used in our door mats and runners for a top surface material. Usually, the carpet goes on top of a rubber or vinyl backing. The purpose behind the use of carpet is one part functional and one part cosmetic. On one hand, carpet is great for dirt scraping purposes as the fibers of the material can flush out and trap unwanted outdoor debris from incoming footwear. On the other hand, it helps to enhance the visual aesthetic appeal of an area because it is available in a variety of different colors.
Rubber entrance mats are cost-effective, durable, and add traction to slick commercial entrances. Hardwood, vinyl, and tile floors can be slippery even in dry conditions; add a spring rain shower and you’re asking for trouble! Continue Reading Below
You can prevent slippery situations by installing a commercial door mat made of rubber in any high traffic doorway or entrance area. Rubber produces a high level of friction against the feet on top of it. This helps to keep a person safe, stable, and upright on their feet and greatly minimizes the chances of them suffering an accident as the result of a slip. 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 is naturally water resistant and has a high coefficient of friction even in wet conditions, it has another feature that makes it great for wet conditions. 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. Thankfully, 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 despite the obstacles that “Mother Nature” may throw in the way! Not only does this include rain, but also harsh UV rays that can potentially cause discoloration and cracking in other materials.
Entrance mats can bring a lot of style to an entryway. We offer carpet mats for indoor areas that have different color options. For outdoor entrances, we provide rubber mats that are designed in a cast-iron style for an added touch of elegance to the area. There is a multitude of different tastes 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. Purchase rubber runners according to the dimensions of your business entryway, and then secure them to any existing concrete or wood surface with a simple double-sided adhesive! No pain, no mess, and no hidden costs! You can trust the Rubber Flooring Experts and invest in a tough, slip-resistant commercial door mat to protect your customers and your business.
