Commercial Floor Mats 101

There are various places where commercial floor mats can be used; they include commercial buildings like hospitals, offices, residential complexes, hotels, and even banks.

They are explicitly placed at the entrances, locker rooms, swimming pools, corridors, and many other public spaces in a business facility where people are constantly passing by.

Commercial mats are positioned at these places because they must be free of hazards and other potential dangers to the building’s occupants to function properly.

In this article, we will discuss commercial floor mats, giving details about the surface coating materials and the external sheets, as they are the main parts of any carpeted mat. Let’s dive right in.

The Surface

Commercial floor mats can be made from various natural and synthetic materials. Examples are cotton and other natural fibers, which are very absorbent. Most floor mats on the market are made from synthetic fibers like nylon, polypropylene, and polyester.

These materials are used due to their superior resilience, fade resistance, and inherent stain resistance compared to natural fibers.

Nylon, among synthetic fibers, has the widest range of possible uses. It can be made into various commercial floor mats or low-maintenance loop carpets. However, since Polypropylene fibers don’t absorb moisture well, professionals prefer using solution dyes for its coloring.

In addition, polyester is a popular floor mat fiber because it combines nylon’s adaptability and polypropylene’s durability. 

It’s important to note that not all materials under the polyester category are precisely the same. They are all different depending on what you’re trying to use them for.

Coating Materials

Coating materials for any commercial floor mats also come in many options. However, the most commonly used ones are Rubber or polyvinyl chloride (PVC). 

Although visually similar, the resistance and durability of various materials vary greatly; therefore, knowing these distinctions can help you choose the optimal material for your specific application.

You should also know that Vinyl floor mats are often less costly than rubber ones, but they need more features that make rubber mats so useful. 

On the other hand, high-traffic and heavy-use areas benefit the most from rubber floor mats. It’s convenient since it can be rolled up for storage yet remains flat on the ground.

External Sheets

When selecting the type of external sheet you think would be suitable for your office, you should also consider the spot/location where you will be placing it.

Professionals recommend that floor mats with suitable external sheets be put on a dry surface regardless of the backing material and the kind of flooring used.

A smooth external sheet is suitable for mats that will be put on a smooth surface, such as marble, tile, or wood. 

The mat won’t move because of the smooth backing, which maximizes contact between the mat’s two sides.
