High Traffic Entries: 5 Recessed Solutions to Consider

High Traffic Entries: 5 Recessed Solutions to Consider Recessed mats are not new in the commercial matting business and it has been helping many businesses already. However, still some business owners refuse to invest in recessed mats because it is pricier than the average commercial mats.

Many businesses have benefited from recessed mat applications in the entryways to their commercial or production facilities.  These mats are highly effective and discreet; they are framed in an empty space in the floor that keeps the surface flush with the ground.

Using recessed mats has a number of benefits more than the average commercial floor mat. One direct advantage is a high degree of risk management.  Recessed mats present a minimal tripping hazard because they lie within a recess.  This reduces the likelihood that a raised edge or an overall disheveled entrance mat will cause a guest to trip and fall.

Another advantage is seen in the way in which recessed mats contain debris.  For example, recessed grills allow dirt, moisture, and other debris to fall into a compartment located directly below the surface (in the recess in which they are installed).  This keeps the surface of the recessed mat clean, even when located in heavily trafficked areas like commercial vestibules.

If you are starting to think that this is the time to install recessed mats in your business store, office or building then you are on the right track.
