In this fast-paced life, people entering a building do not often stop and wipe their feet, so it's important that an entrance mat is long enough to ensure there are enough contacts between the entry matting and the soles of shoes to minimise the amount of dirt carried into the building. The New Zealand Building Code's recommendation is that a mat should have a minimum dimension of 1.8m from front to back which allows for two contacts of each foot.
Studies have proven that fitting an entrance with a 6m depth of an effective matting solution is enough to stop 94% of all walked in dirt and moisture. Cleaning Research International has proven that maintenance is 86% of the total life cycle cost of floor covering. By stopping 94% of walked in dirt and moisture, users can reduce their cleaning costs by 65% and extend the life of floor coverings.
