7. Gradus Entrance Matting System


The Gradus SystemMatic approach to matting combines the use of primary barrier matting and secondary barrier carpet in different areas throughout a building to provide an attractive, functional solution to the problem of tracked-in dirt and moisture.  More than 70% of dirt and moisture in buildings is tracked in by pedestrian and wheeled traffic. Using an effective matting system can:

  • Reduce the amount of dirt and moisture walked into a building by up to 90%
  • Reduce the risk of slip accidents
  • Improve the appearance of internal floorcoverings
  • Reduce cleaning and maintenance costs
  • Help provide safe access for all users of buildings, including wheelchair users, in line with the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) 1995
