Hospitals, Care Homes, Surgeries

Areas with consistent high traffic flow, often continuing throughout 24hours on every day of the week. Hygiene is obviously critical, and Entrance Matting should be quick and easy to thoroughly clean. It is recommended that matting is pressure or steamed cleaned periodically, and a system that is straightforward to remove from the matwell is therefore ideal.

Matwell Size Matwells should cover the full width of the entrance doors and recommended to extend between 5-8m in the traffic direction. Where matwell size is restricted, surface bonded high performance fibre can be considered for increased performance
Volume of Traffic High Traffic areas with regular flow 24/7
Type of Traffic Heavy Wear: Foot traffic / Wheeled stretchers / Wheelchairs etc.
External Environment Often exposed areas with hard surfaces – prevention of moisture ingress is primary
Internal Environment Effective soil & moisture removal for protection of internal floor finishes and the prevention of slips on hard floors due to surface moisture
