There are several different types of floor mats for several different uses. At the most basic level, we have residential floor mats and commercial or industrial floor mats. The former are used at home while the latter are installed in commercial settings by business owners and production site managers. We also have other different types of floor mats based on their functional application. There are heated floor mats that are installed on floors to provide warmth in the house or workplace. There are logo mats that are used for brand promotion and marketing or advertisement purposes. Medical mats are specially designed floor mats for installation in healthcare facilities. And then we have entrance mats that are installed both at home and in the workplace. The following guide covers everything you need to know about entrance mats.
What Are Entrance Mats?
Entrance mats, which are also referred to as entryway or indoor/outdoor floor mats, are specially designed floor mats for installation across doorways. This means that these mats are designed in such a way that they cover the entrance of your house or building. Entrance mats extend to cover a small section inside your house and another section just outside the door; hence the name indoor/outdoor floor mats. Entrance mats come in all sizes, colors, designs, and are manufactured from all types of materials. As we will see below, the main use of entrance mats is to keep the indoors clean and to provide floor safety. This means that these mats have to be made in a very special way. Most entrance mats feature a tough backing made of rubber or vinyl and an absorbent top surface or fabric like carpet fibers.
Uses Of Entrance Mats
Entrance mats are used for many different purposes. The main function of entrance mats is to keep the interior of the house clean and dry. These mats are designed to trap dirt, moisture, salts, ice, and other debris from the soles of the shoes of people entering the building. They have an absorbent rough material that traps all these impurities from outside and prevents them from getting into the house. The mats are therefore used to protect the floors in your house. Another use of entrance mats is to provide traction to users when entering the building. This means that all entrance mats are used as slip proof mats to prevent accidental falls due to slippery floors. When the user steps from outside into the house, his shows could have collected moisture and this can cause him to fall at the doorway or after entering the house. Entrance mats are used to prevent such problems. Another function of entrance mats is to beautify the house. You should always choose an aesthetically appealing entrance mat to enhance the interior décor of the house. Remember that entrance mats are used as “welcome mats” in any building.
Places To Install Entrance Mats
Entrance mats are installed in all kinds of places. As mentioned above, these mats are installed in doorways. You will need to install an entrance mat at the main entrance of your house or building. You can also install these mats in connecting doorways. Entrance mats are installed at home and in commercial and industrial settings.
