Barrier matting systems, also known as entrance matting, is usually a fixed matting system made from aluminium or plastic, and featuring inserts made of carpet, nylon brushes, or rubber/PVC scrapers.
Different types of inserts are designed to scrape dirt or absorb moisture from footwear and wheeled traffic, and the combination you specify will depend on the environment, amount of footfall, and type of traffic.
Barrier matting is designed to stop moisture and debris from being tracked into a building and can offer a number of aesthetic and practical benefits for any business.
