Slips and falls are one of the very most common accidents in public-facing hospitality spaces, for both employees and guests. While you can’t control the wet weather outside that often leads to these types of accidents, you can mitigate your risk by upgrading your door mats! If you’re a medium-or-larger hotel with a high volume of foot traffic, standard door mats don’t cut it—you need heavy duty commercial entrance mats. custom logo floor mats
Factors such as seasonal weather, your type of flooring, and whether you have single or double doors should be taken into consideration when determining where to place your main entrance mats. The right mat for your back-of-house, kitchen prep, and laundry areas most likely isn’t the right mat for your lobby and customer-facing areas! For example, your hot tub, locker rooms, pools, and shower areas should use appropriate drainage mats, like 3M Nomad 1500 and Nomad 3200. Although kitchens are also wet areas, these mats won’t do the job – you need something that’s resistant to grease, like our Competitor Series in orange nitrile rubber. Place mats strategically in places when transitioning from one surface to another, because many slip and fall accidents are caused by the different amount of traction available when moving from one flooring surface to another in different areas.
