Commercial properties have exclusive requirements that influence the kind of matting that would work optimally for them. Commercial spaces such as stores and malls experience heavy foot and wheeled traffic. Others see more people than carts and trolleys. In some cases, first impressions matter but so does the budget. Each scenario presents a different challenge and requires a specific (and different) type of flooring. But, one matting solution that is a good fit in all situations is the recessed well and the matting we have for it. What is a recessed well? A recessed well is a square shape that is cut into the floor. It is usually ½ inch deep, but it can be deeper. It is meant to be filled with matting made from synthetic or natural material. In homes, the well is generally inside the house, just inside the threshold. In commercial establishments, the well is created just outside the entrance. Why do we have recessed wells? Recessed wells holds matting inside them, keeping it level with the floor. One of the biggest advantage of having a recessed well, is that it helps prevent the mats from sticking out which in turn helps reduce tripping hazards. The wells are very useful for areas with heavy wheeled traffic. Another advantage is that dirt, dust and water that get scraped off shoe soles stay within the well rather than spread around creating unsightly and unhygienic surroundings. The recessed wells also impart a seamless flush appearance to the flooring while keeping it clean. The advantages of a recessed well are more apparent in commercial and industrial premises than in homes. What kind of mats can be used in a recessed well? Any kind of matting can be used in the recessed well depending on your need - nylon, natural and synthetic rubber, natural fibers like coir, cloth etc. One important requirement with recessed well matting is that it should be customizable, as the well-dimensions could differ.
