15 ft. Rule

The 15 ft. of matting can consist of a single mat, or for a true high-performance entrance matting system, several mats with unique functionality that are typically used together and address the three major zones of an entrance.

Zone 1

The first zone is where a majority of the scraping occurs catching the first wave of heavy debris with up to 40% of dirt/moisture being removed from shoes. This zone often times starts outside the entrance using matting with heavy weather-resistant materials and fibers to remove much of the debris before it enters the facility.

Zone 2

The second zone continues the scraping process targeting finer particles and debris while starting the moisture absorption process. These mats typically combine a tough scraping carpet fiber with a more absorbent fiber to enable the dual process in a single mat. This zone is either a foyer entryway or the area just inside the entrance to the facility. 

Zone 3

The third and final zone completes the drying and cleaning process with virtually all dirt and moisture removed from shoes. Mats used in this zone are made of softer more absorbent fibers to ensure that all moisture and debris has been thoroughly removed. This zone begins just after zone 2 inside the entrance.
