Where is the Best Place for Recessed Mats?

Recessed mats are a leading floor safety solution for many commercial office spaces, retail stores and apartment buildings. Like standard commercial entryway mats, recessed mats are efficient at preventing slip-and-fall accidents while preserving interior cleanliness and hygiene. Their principal advantage is a uniform, durable design crucial in high-traffic areas.

Recessed mats, unlike typical business floor mats, can be placed in an empty reduction in the floor, allowing the surface to sit flush with the surrounding area. This low-profile, flat shape reduces tripping dangers caused by curling edges. When property owners and facility managers install recessed mats, they don't have to worry about tripping hazards. Raised edges on business floor mats, which are frequently in critical need of replacement, pose a safety risk, legal responsibility, and financial hardship. Surface-mounted recessed mats are those that are installed within a frame on top of an existing floor.

Recessed mats, in addition to their attractive appearance, trap moisture, dirt, and debris beneath the surface. This prevents bacteria from spreading to shoes and across your business. Keeping your workplace, store, or hotel's entryway clean enhances the indoor air quality and assures the health of your employees and customers.

Recessed Mats for Every Space

Some recessed mats come with grills, which are a highly-durable and gripping surface made of metal (aluminum) and carpet inserts. The aluminum aggressively scrubs the bottom of shoes for moisture and dirt, which is then locked into the fibers of carpet bands. 

For something less complex but similarly robust, Berber Impression mats are best used in moderate traffic areas, such as mid-sized offices, schools, hospitals and hotels. Their long-lasting durability and continued support is a major benefit. Plus, they contain weatherproof UV stabilizers which eliminates fading when used outdoors. Because of their sunken design, Berber impression mats trap dirt and moisture beneath the visible exterior.

For sustainable offices and workplaces, Waterhog Classic Floor Tiles provide an eco-friendly recessed matting alternative. Although Waterhog tiles are constructed entirely from recycled plastic, their heavy resilience is well-suited for spaces with moderate traffic. And, they won’t fade or rot over time.
