Make a good impression on the visitors right from the doorstep by placing a good door carpet outside or inside of your premises.

We will help you shop for mats so that you pick up the right product bringing felicity ro you. Reduced maintenance cost inside your facility start outside, “before” your visitors enter the building. Stopping debris and water outside your entrances is the best way to keep costly contaminants from entering your facility and doing damage to your floors.  Abrasive dirt and moisture take a free ride on the bottom of visitor’s foot gear.  If dirt and moisture are not stopped outside, they have a better chance of entering the building and can causing damage and premature wear to interior flooring. That can be expensive.  A quality outdoor entrance mat is engineered to begin the cleaning process well before your visitor passes over your threshold.  They are designed to handle the rigors of exterior weather conditions and do a difficult job cleaning and retaining unwanted debris. According to a study, 15 linear feet of matting can stop 80-85% of tracked in dirt.

Mats with textured surfaces are supposed to be ideal for the outdoors. Scraper surfaced mats are also widely sought after.

Buy a mat that is thick and does not slip easily.

Mats that have been made from jute and fabrics are the best to be used indoors.

Choose the size of the door carpet that fits your door size.

High mats are supposed to be kept outside.

When conditions are wet and slippery, inclines and ramps or slippery steps can quickly become a high risk, hazardous location prone to slips and falls by visitors.  Anti-Slip runner mats increases tractions on ramps, walkways or even smooth wet walkways. 

Floor mats are available with two distinct types of backing: rubber-backed mats  and vinyl-backed mats.  Rubber backed entrance mats are superior to vinyl-backed entrance mats.

Rubber is the preferred backing for all floor mat products.  Rubber backed floor mats are made for high-use, heavy-traffic areas; perfect for office buildings, schools, hospitals or commercial facilities.  Premium, commercial-grade rubber will not dog-ear, curl up and become a potential tripping hazard.

In addition to being able to withstand extreme temperatures (both hot and cold) and its ability to always lay flat, rubber is fade, stain and mildew resistant.

Vacuuming should take care of virtually all the cleaning for these door mats, but they can also be hosed off, shampoo or steam extracted and even laundered in a washer.

Vinyl is a composite material and, although slightly less expensive than rubber, it does not have many of the key features associated with rubber mats. Vinyl mats are often placed in light to medium-use locations such as smaller retail stores, back doors and lower traffic entrances.

Vinyl mats are more chemical resistant, more resistant to moisture absorption and can be produced in a wider variety of colors than rubber floor mats can.  The vinyl material, however, does not have the same resistance to extreme temperatures or the durability of rubber, especially when being unrolled and rolled frequently.  Eventually, the vinyl may curl, warp or even crack.

Whereas rubber can be produced with the gripper backing, vinyl mats are only available with a smooth backing and thus should only be used on hard surfaces such as wood, tile and marble.

Vinyl door mats should be vacuumed or hosed off only, they cannot withstand the more aggressive cleaning methods of rubber and can definitely not be laundered.

Although vinyl backed entrance mats are slightly less expensive and offer greater chemical resistance, rubber backed mats are more durable, safer and less likely to be problematic.
