Commercial mats can help protect businesses from slip and fall accidents, costly litigation, muscle soreness, static electricity, and more. Did you know that they can even help protect our environment? Mats can be recycled and used for other purposes and can have a positive impact on building maintenance, conserving natural resources. We illustrate the eco-impact of our commercial mats.
Keep Dirt & Grime Outside
Did you know that 85% of dirt that enters a facility is tracked 15 feet within the building? This not only creates more work for your maintenance staff, but requires the use of more chemicals and natural resources. By implementing a commercial matting program, you can decrease labor and resources spent on cleaning floors, while declining your carbon footprint.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Commercial mats should be able to store soil and water until they are ready to be laundered, which will result in a minimum impact on the building. The reduced amount of cleaning chemicals required to clean the building will reduce airborne and organic contaminants found in commercial cleaners. As a result, the building’s indoor air quality will be improved.
Commercial Mats are Recyclable
Go green with commercial mats that are recycled. Our rental mats are repurposed and regenerative, reducing the amount of waste placed in landfills, while finding greater uses for old mats. Mats that are past their life cycle, will be ground up and reformed to become a non-launderable mat or for use as boiler fuel.
Earn LEED Credit
The U.S. Green Building Council has created a system for buildings to encourage business owners to earn LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits related to facility maintenance. This includes utilizing entrance systems and mats to keep dirt outside of the facility. Recommendations include 10-12 feet of matting to be placed at the entrance of a facility. It is cited that 85% of all soil that enters a building originates from the feet of visitors.
High twist, heat set nylon yarn, used in some of our mats, has superb brushing ability and can remove soil and dirt from the soles of shoes. Commercial matting solutions not only can help protect business owners from litigation, but can count toward LEED credits that can distinguish them from the competition.
