Scraper Entrance Mats

Your first line of defense

Scraper mats are designed to stop mud and larger particles of dirt from being tracked inside buildings. These mats provide aggressive scraping action and trap dirt and debris in recessed areas until the mats are cleaned. Scraper mats can be used outside or inside and should be used in conjunction with a scraper/wiper mat and a wiper mat.

Scraper/Wiper Entrance Mats

The second step to keeping dirt outside

Scraper/wiper mats are designed to provide scraping action and wiping to further stop dirt and moisture from entering your property. These mats are typically made of tough fabrics, like rubber and nylon. They channel and retain dust in recessed grooves while absorbing moisture in the fabric face. Primarily used inside, these mats may be used outside as well.

Minimize Maintenance Costs with Matting In hotels and other facilities, mats are the first defense to stop dirt and moisture from entering the building. Serving as a filter, mats stop contaminants from being tracked inside, saving hundreds – even thousands – of dollars a year in excessive cleaning costs and damage to interior floor surfaces.

Consider these facts...

  • 70% to 80% of dust, grime and dirt in a building is tracked in from the outside on people’s feet, permanently damaging floors.
  • One square yard of carpet can accumulate one pound of dirt a week — twice that in inclement weather.
  • The estimated cost to find and remove a single pound of dirt from a building can run in excess of $600 in cleaning costs. As few as 150 people entering a facility can track in one pound of dirt in a 5-day work week, costing over $30,000 annually to remove.
  • By utilizing high performance entrance matting of at least 10' to 15' as recommended by the U.S. Green Building Council and the Carpet and Rug Institute, you can capture as much as 85% to 95% of contaminants, saving maintenance dollars and protecting building assets.
