At Ajax Flooring, we specialise in heavy duty matting that can help give your business a good first impression to visitors while also being barely noticeable.
Barrier matting is sometimes referred to as entrance matting, and it is a type of commercial flooring which is fixed in place near the entrance or exit of a business premises. It is often produced from aluminium or plastic, with inserts made from carpet, rubber/PVC scrapers or nylon brushes. These inserts are designed to clear dirt and absorb excess moisture from shoes as people enter the building.
This type of commercial flooring is available in two types;
Primary barrier matting and secondary barrier matting. Primary heavy duty matting is created using a combination of metal frames with inserts of hardwearing carpet or rubber. It is ideal for very high traffic areas such as busy entrances.
Secondary heavy duty matting is less intense and is generally made using an extremely hard-wearing carpet. This is designed to reduce dirt and dust that has been bought into the building and is the perfect commercial flooring for small areas and footwells.
