If you’re trying to cut down on that $1 billion dollar per year spent by businesses on slips, trips, and falls, then you should have some mats outside your office or business as well as inside.
Having mats on the outside—outside of front or side or back doors—prevents water, snow, ice, dirt, and debris from entering the building. These mats prevent accidents outside your building but while folks are still on your property and still your responsibility.
Furthermore, the mats outside cut down on the wear and tear on the mats inside. The outside mats trap all that water and debris before it makes its way onto your inside mats.
Wondering which kinds of mats are appropriate? Here’s a quick survey.
- Waterhog Mats. These are special mats designed to absorb and channel away a lot of water. It’s a highly absorbent mat that comes in at least 19 colors. Washing them is as simple as hosing them off and allowing them to dry flat.
- Rubber Mats. If you have a particularly dirty area, maybe you should use rubber mats. These are designed for hard-wearing, high-traffic areas and are a breeze to clean. A good spot for these would be outside a back door or near a delivery area or loading zone where there’s heavy and dirty traffic.
- Logo Mats. If you want to make a bold statement at the entrance to your place of business, then logo mats are the way to go. We can print anything you want in any color to make your brand or logo obvious to passersby.
- Eco-Friendly Mats. Don’t worry, for the eco-minded among us, we have a big selection of mats made of recycled materials. These mats are built to last, and we can come up with any look you’re going for.
Outside mats protect the interior of your business. Mats cut down on the slip, trip, and fall accidents, and they make you look good. They are such a low-cost way to protect your interior flooring and the safety of your customers and your employees that it’s really a no-brainer to load up on them. Get enough mats, so you can replace dirty ones with clean ones while you’re washing the dirty ones. You should have several sets to be able to rotate them.
