How we work with Architects on entrance matting projects

COBA Flooring entrance matting

More and more architects are specifying COBA Flooring’s entrance matting systems for their commercial design projects. Our flooring products are being used in all types of sectors from offices to retail environments.  We explain here how we work with architects in helping them to create the perfect entrance for a wide range of buildings.

Entrance matting specialists

Our entrance matting specialists operate from our Leicestershire Head Office, and throughout the UK. All our team members are extremely knowledgeable in the entrance matting field and can offer as much advice and support as required.

We welcome the opportunity to meet with architects, or to arrange site visits if required and can, if needed, support contractors throughout the construction chain until the project is completed. We can provide any additional data about our products that may be required. It is also worth knowing that we publish case studies on our website illustrating some of the environments in which our products are successfully used.

We even have an entrance matting specification builder on our website, you can customise the entrance matting’s surface finish, profile height, insert material, and colour. This information can then be easily copied to the project documents in a few clicks.

Do you custom manufacture entrance matting?

Yes, products such as those in our aluminium entrance matting ‘Plan’ range, are custom-made to order to suit the precise size and shape of an entrance well. Plan.a is fast becoming one of our best-selling premium quality aluminium entrance mat systems, and with a variety of surface finishes, can be used to create some stunning entrance areas, while being practical too. Bespoke logomats can also be integrated within Plan.a. In fact, it is worth noting that logomats can be incorporated into all our entrance matting options.

We’ve even worked on a range of custom projects for revolving door entrance matting.

Do you offer ‘value engineered’ solutions?

Entrance matting is very often one of the last products to be fitted on a building project, and if budgets are being squeezed in the final phases, we offer several effective, lower-priced options. PathMaster Alu is a good example as it gives the illusion of a bespoke aluminium system, yet it is supplied in standard rolls and can be applied to the floor surface without having to construct a recessed matwell.

Is your entrance matting manufactured from recycled materials?

Treadwell Barrier Matting

A number of our products are produced from recycled materials, the Premier range of interlocking entrance tiles being a very good example. Treadwell, is part of our ‘recycled range’ of entrance matting, a stylish yet durable nylon carpet tile manufactured from recycled tyres.

Can you react swiftly to last-minute requests and specification changes?

As a UK-based entrance matting manufacturer headquartered in Leicestershire, we can offer swift turnaround and delivery on products.  Options, such as our Premier, PathMaster, and Treadwell collections, are very often available ex-stock and we can usually turn around our custom-made aluminium entrance matting systems in 5-10 working days.

We also offer Premier FastTrack entrance tiles that are conveniently supplied in boxes of 8 tiles to cover 1m2, ready to install straight from the box and no adhesive is required for faster installation.

Yes, we’re able to offer entrance matting installations by trained professionals. Our teams can also provide fast installs and turnaround times when you need them. Find out more about our Supply & Install service.
