Protect your floors, people, and wallet with M+A Matting

Coming out of the pandemic, we are all looking for ways to save our capital and reinvest it back into our businesses. One way to accomplish this is to make sure we have the proper equipment that can help us maintain our facilities at a lower cost. With the M+A Matting 3-mat entrance system, we can help you protect your floors, protect your people, and protect your wallet.

Protect Your Floors

It only takes 1,500 people entering a facility to remove 42% of your floor’s finish in the first six feet of your entrance, according to Construction Specialties. It’s true, and the number one line of defense against contaminates like rocks, pebbles, sand, moisture, and mud from entering your facility and ruining your floors is a proper entrance matting system. A study performed by the Rug and Carpet Institute shows that 80% of contaminates can be stopped in the first 9 to 15 feet of matting. Our 3-mat entrance system is designed for this and consists of an outdoor scraper mat (SuperScrape Plus®), indoor scraper/wiper mat (WaterHog®), and wiper mat (ColorStar®). The 3-mat system can also be personalized with your logo or message.

Protect Your People

When someone enters your facility, whether it is employees, guests, or customers, M+A wants to help you provide the safest environment possible. The NFSI states that slips and falls are the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims and are the leading cause of occupational injury for people aged 55 years and older. Our eco-friendly WaterHog® Silver mat features a water dam border that holds 1 ½ gallons of water per square yard to keep floors safe and dry. The anti-microbial top surface prevents the growth of bacteria, mold, fungus, mildew, and odors.  Lastly, it features a bi-level surface reinforced with rubber to trap heavier soils in the channels below shoe level, helping prevent tracking throughout the facility. The WaterHog® line is the ultimate mat solution to help protect floors and the people by keeping your floors clean and your people safe!

Protect Your Wallet

Did you know that labor costs make up 85-95% of the cost of cleaning according to the ISSA? Chances are, you can relate. We recommend having 5’ of outdoor matting, like our SuperScrape Plus® scraper mat, as the first line of defense to trap heavier contaminants. The second line of defense would be 10’-15’ of indoor scraper/wiper mats like our WaterHog® Silver mat. Our ColorStar® carpet top mat finishes off the trifecta by wiping off any remaining dirt, dust, or moisture. The proper 3-mat entrance system can help you protect your floors, protect your people, and protect your wallet by saving on labor expenses.
