First impressions are important, especially when trying to entice customers to walk into your business. Is your entrance clearly marked? When the customer enters the building, is the floor clean and dry?
A quality logo mat can solve both those issues. Why let your entrance look like these:
When your entrance could look like this?
Before deciding how your logo would look on a mat, though, you must remember that a quality entrance mat must provide the following functions:
1. STOP SOIL AND WATER AT THE DOOR
The most effective mats provide a combination of scraping and wiping to stop the maximum amount of contaminants.
2. STORE SOIL AND WATER FOR REMOVAL
The most effective mat must provide a way for soil and water to be contained so they cannot spread to the surrounding floor. Why? Contaminants that flow off the sides of a mat cause damage and can lead to slip/fall dangers. Lawsuits are bad for business.
3. MINIMIZE TRACKING OF SOIL AND WATER
This capability is best accomplished by a BI-level construction that provides an upper surface for walking and a lower area where soil and water are stored until removed by cleaning. The amount of soil that a mat allows to be reattached to shoes is directly related to the construction of the mat..
4. PROVIDE A SAFE SURFACE
The bottom of a mat should be slip-resistant to minimize movement on the floor when it is walked on. Also any water on the mat should be contained in a reservoir below the traffic surface to prevent moisture on flooring surface adjacent to the mat that can cause slip/fall incidents.
