WHAT SIZE SHOULD AN ENTRANCE MAT BE?
Recommended entrance matting size
We recommend the following walking direction length.
- 3 to 5 metre mat length for normal dirt pick-up
- 6 to 7 metres for medium dirt pick-up (indoor/covered)
- 8 to 10 metres for high dirt pick-up with heavy traffic
For applications where space is limited, an entrance mat should be a minimum of 2.1meters long in the walking direction. The matting width should be at least one metre wider than the door opening; this allows for efficient cleaning of feet/wheels for those who don’t enter the building in a straight line.
