The Importance of Entrance Matting

3 Key Reasons For Installing Entrance Matting Today!

They may seem like any ordinary product but entrance matting provides more benefits than you might think. With the unpredictable Autumn and Winter weather now upon us it’s very important to keep in mind that rain water and moisture can play havoc in the entrance of a business or premises. Over the years many slip or trip accidents have been reported - at Pittman we want to equip you with the best products to keep your health and safety standards in check and save you money in more ways than one.

The Facts

According to a study provided by the Health and Safety Authority:

  • Almost 1 in 5 slip victims are non-workers.
  • Most slips tend to occur between 8am and 10am.
  • Slips account for the vast majority of wet floor slips, trips and falls.
  • Majority of slip victims are female.
  • Footwear only accounted for under 3% of slip accidents reported.


It’s obvious that wet floors can provide many problems for you and your customers. Aside from the obvious health risks the lack of entrance matting can cost you in several ways.

Here are 3 key reasons to purchase entrance matting from Pittman

  1. Reduce slips and trips

Using the correct entrance matting not only helps to catch moisture at the source – it can help to absorb it so that pedestrians will be less likely to slip or trip when on your premises, thus promoting better health and safety standards

Pittman entrance matting also comes with vinyl backing and will stay in place at all times, while the bevelled edges reduce the risk of tripping.

  1. Reduce cleaning costs

Having entrance mats in place will stop dirt and moisture at the source and will in turn help you reduce the need for regular cleaning elsewhere around the building. Entrance matting means visitors have a chance to wipe their feet and reduces the need for expensive cleaning elsewhere, especially where carpets are concerned.

  1. Protect expensive floors

Tiles, marble or wooden floors can be very expensive to install. If too much moisture, dirt or debris gets into them they will not only look bad, they may eventually have to be replaced. Using entrance matting helps to catch debris and reduce scuff marks, scratches etc. that will preserve this expensive flooring as long as possible.


Act fast

With the unpredictable Autumn weather imminent now is the time to equip yourself with the best products available, especially if you have a busy entrance to look after. Before the rain hits make sure you have Pittman entrance matting in place to protect your floors and to keep your premises clean.
