Why You Can't Welcome with Carpet Tiles
Entrances are used by all building inhabitants daily, which means a lot of wear and tear on the flooring. Carpet tiles, though sufficient in low-traffic areas, are not designed for high-traffic and weather-affected areas, such as main entrances.
As people enter a building, they can quickly develop a negative impression based on the cleanliness and appearance. That impression may remain as they evaluate the rest of the building and influence their judgment about the quality of services rendered.
Tracked-in water and debris sit on the surface of the carpet at the entrance, creating an unattractive floor as well as a potentially slippery surface.
Insufficient trapping of water and debris means it can be tracked further into the building, increasing facility and maintenance costs and adding to the building overhead.
With a short life cycle due to the high amount of foot traffic, worn out carpet tiles will need to be replaced. Newly replaced tiles greatly contrast with surrounding tiles that are dirty or faded.
We understand that every project has its own special criteria for entrance mats + grids, and that our standard designs may not be right for your needs. We have a team of technical experts that can work with you to design a custom entrance flooring product that meets your building's exact requirements.
