A GOOD ENTRANCE SOLUTION
What does an optimal doormat solution look like? Several factors that come into play when choosing doormats, e.g., location of the premises, climate, size of entrance, etc. In short, different entrances make different demands on entrance solutions. A grocery store does not have the same needs as a smaller store inside a mall.
But a good starting point when it comes to doormats is to have the following arrangement:
- A scraper carpet outside the entrance
- A combination carpet or drying carpet just inside the entrance
The scraper carpet outside the entrance collects coarse dirt and gravel. Choose a scraper carpet with a pattern that allows rainwater and liquids to flow through easily. You will find the following carpets in our assortment suitable for that task: Sani Top, Rubber Tip and Yoga L.
The combination carpet/drying carpets’ primary function is to scrape off the dirt that remains after the scraping carpet and soak up moisture on the shoes. When choosing a drying carpet, it is essential to select a mat with high absorbency. All drying carpets in our range have good absorbency and can handle everything from medium to heavy traffic. In our range, you will find the following mats suitable for that task: Exclusive, Classic and Solett.
This combination of carpets is suitable for larger and smaller shops directly adjacent to street level. A combination carpet is often enough if your premises are indoors, e.g., in a mall. If you have room for two mats, we recommend an amalgamation of a combination carpet and a drying carpet for best possible functionality.
GOOD TO THINK ABOUT WHEN CHOOSING AN DOORMAT
Below we list some excellent questions you should ask yourself before choosing a carpet:
- Where will the carpet be placed?
- How big does it need to be?
- What does the traffic look like? High, medium, or light traffic?
- How will the carpet be looked after?
