The office is the face of a company or brand. Your customers, clients, vendors, and potential clients may have seen your advertising and branding. But once they walk into your office, it becomes a reality. It is worth creating a professional, reliable impression of that reality.
Of course, your decor can do a lot for you. We have a post on how to choose the best entrance mat for your home.
Entrance mats are meant to protect floors and keep the place clean. An entrance mat that is strong and durable will hold dirt, scrape it off, and conceal it. You can find office entrance mats in rolls, grid, and molded formats. They are made from coir, synthetic polypropylene, or nylon mats.
Custom Logo Entry Mats
These mats can be printed with your company’s logo, slogan, or branding. You can get custom logo mats in nylon, polyamide, polyester, polypropylene, and nylon, or in combinations of these materials. They can be printed or inlaid to your branding. For logos with more detail and intricate designs, printing is a great option.
The mats will last longer because they are printed with high-quality dyes and a machine-printing process. Inlaid doormats are a different process. The entire logo design is cut from a base mat. Coloured and cut pieces of the design are then added to make a composite logo design. Inlaid logo work looks luxurious and lasts for a longer time, even in high-traffic areas. These commercial floor mats can be made of coir or synthetic fibers and will remove dirt and grime from shoe soles while keeping them out of sight.
Who should purchase: Custom logo entry mats are great for displaying professionalism, seriousness, and, of course, your brand assets. They have a rich, luxurious look that exudes elegance and sophistication. These are a great way for your brand to be displayed at the front door and help you build brand recall.
Recessed Well Entry Mats
A recessed well mat is required if there is a recessed opening at the door. Recessed-well mats allow matting to sit lower than the floor, and not above it. This allows for a smooth and level entrance so that the mat doesn’t stick out or cause people to trip on it.
Who should purchase? These mats are ideal if there are indoor or outdoor recess wells at your front door. It is important that your mat allows for wheelchair movement when you have a lot of people using your premises. This purpose is served well by well-received mats.
These mats are great for offices that see a lot of foot traffic throughout the day. A mat that is flush to the floor means that visitors are not likely to trip or fall, which can be embarrassing.
Because the mat is less likely to be damaged by feet striking against it, there will be less curling or fraying. Recessed well mats are available in a grid and roll-good formats.
Drainage Entrance Mats
Drainage mats are made with holes or slots that allow water, snow, and ice to pass through them. This makes the surface less slippery and keeps it dry. These mats allow dirt, mud, and grime to slide down the mat to the bottom. This is hidden from plain view. This means that the office floor is dry and has no muddy puddles. This reduces the risk of accidental falls and slips. These mats are made of durable materials like rubber or vinyl that resist dirt.
Who should purchase? Drainage mats can be a boon for areas that experience a lot of wet weather. These mats can be used outside of your office if you live in an area with a lot of rain. These mats are great for cities that experience seasonal monsoons. You can bring it out in rainy or snowy weather, and store it away when you are not using it. These mats are very easy to clean due to their material. This is a huge plus considering that they often see wet soles of shoes and require frequent cleaning.
Combining them with indoor entrance mats made of absorbent synthetic fibers will make a more efficient system to keep your premises clean and dry.
Indoor Entry Mats, Synthetic and Carpeted
Although rubber and molded Vinyl are excellent for protecting the environment, indoor mats must be soft and plush to give off the warmth and sophistication that office receptions and entrances desire. The indoor entrance mats can be made of absorbent materials like nylon, polypropylene, and polyamide, or a combination thereof. Because of their soft material and carpet appearance, indoor entrance mats can be almost as hardy as entrance mats.
These mats are great for scraping dirt, mud, and other debris from the soles of your boots. They can also be used to hold and conceal them. These mats have fibers that absorb moisture and offer absorption. This reduces slips and falls by preventing water and mud from getting trapped.
Who should purchase? Indoor entrance mats are suitable for use anywhere and by all. A professional, clean and sophisticated interior is essential for any business. Clean interiors are a crucial factor in the hospitality and restaurant industry.
They can be used in conjunction with tough outdoor entrance mats/drainage mats to get rid of most dirt. The indoor mat can still handle moisture but it won’t become too dirty.
Coir Entrance Mats
Coir mats are warm and earthy in style. These mats are made from natural coconut fibers and are safe, durable, and eco-friendly. These mats make excellent boot scrapers. Coir mats can be cut to any size and come in a variety of colors to match your interiors. They can also be printed with your logo, motto, or tagline.
Who should purchase? Suitable for most offices, except those in rainy areas. Natural fibers are able to absorb moisture but they work best in warmer and drier places. They are also available in rolls and can be used as runners, doormats, and floor mats.
Consider your business’s needs, geographic location, and interior design when choosing an office entrance mat. The perfect entrance mat for your business will be found somewhere at the intersection of all these factors.
