Featured Mat of the Month: Gateway Entrance Matting

Rubber entrance matting can significantly reduce building maintenance and cleaning costs

As a leading matting provider, we are often asked to supply rubber entrance matting for high-traffic entranceways. For these types of applications, it is important to select entrance matting that is effective in significantly reducing the amount of dirt and debris that is tracked into a building. Cutting down the amount of tracked in dirt can greatly reduce the costs associated with building maintenance and cleaning.

Gateway rubber entrance matting is well proven as the ideal first barrier to prevent dirt entering buildings. This efficient, high quality, ‘clean and scrape’ system protects internal floor coverings and significantly reduces cleaning costs. The matting is now also available in the Gateway Plus format, with 100% Nylon BCF carpet strips to remove the heaviest soiling and moisture.

Gateway entrance matting is an open grid style matting system manufactured from 100 percent solid welded PVC. The matting is heel and wheel resistant, durable yet quiet, and eliminates the noise and clatter associated with aluminum roll–up mats.
