Step Right in with a Floor Mat Rental Program that Keeps the Dirt Out

Mat Systems – Placement

Mat Placement strategy

Roscoe's general placement strategy for rental mats.

Two weeks ago, Roscoe posted on the benefits of having a mat rental program; today we stress the importance of mat placement. If a mat rental system is properly installed it should get nearly 100% of the dirt coming through the door. The reasoning behind this is that 30% of the dirt coming into a building is picked up in the first three feet of matting, while 85% is picked up in the first 15 feet. That adds up to a spotless work environment!

Different mat types serve for different stages of defense against particles and contaminants. The first line of defense is the scraper mats, which also has anti-fatigue mat properties. The heavy and durable rubber stops the toughest of dirt, mud, snow, water and debris from boots and shoes, which is why the best place for these mats are entryways, spillage areas, locker rooms and work stations. All-rubber mats have improved ergonomics which increase employee comfort, reduce fatigue, and result in greater productivity.
