When specifying entrance matting for transport it’s vital to have public safety as a high priority, due to the vast numbers of daily foot traffic. Airports, train stations, and bus stations can have footfall reaching the thousands every week. The potential for slip and trip accidents is high.
Entrance matting can increase safety underfoot, preventing slips in areas where there is constant high footfall, which is often the case at transport hubs. When specifying for these types of public areas, it’s important that the entrance matting can also withstand high volumes of wheeled traffic, from luggage trolleys, baggage trolleys, and small indoor wheeled vehicles. The product selected must be able to cope with heavy loads. Aluminium entrance matting is often the best choice, due to its high durability.
