Retail Issues

Customers are looking to shop in a clean, elegant, high-quality environment, with clean products and displays.

With 85% of all the dirt and moisture in a building coming in on the soles of shoes, good quality, open structure entrance matting systems play a vital role in stopping and capturing dirt and moisture at the entrance – unlike basic matting which quickly becomes ineffective as the dirt and moisture simply sits on top, and this is then carried into the store by the next customer.

Here are just some of the knock-on effects that dirt and moisture can have on your store:
