INTRAsystems is proud to be the market leader in the design of entrance matting and architectural grilles for commercial environments, assisting specifiers to achieve the full potential of their vision, with no compromises to design or functionality.
The entrances of schools, universities and colleges are often subject to intense periods of heavy footfall, with muddy shoes and studded footwear for sports making heavy-duty entrance matting a necessity. INTRAsystems is dedicated to finding the most suitable solution for your building, while simultaneously keeping costs low to suit centrally funded budgets.
Experts in the exacting needs of hospitals, care homes and surgeries, INTRAsystems can provide the hygienic and hard-wearing entrance matting solutions that the healthcare sector demands. Exceptionally durable to cope with high traffic flow, and featuring effective soil and moisture removal, you can be confident that your entrance will be both safe and sanitary for public use.
These are areas with extreme traffic levels, and a high performing and heavy duty Entrance Matting system is essential to ensure safety. This sector includes some of the most demanding areas for the use of Entrance Matting, with consistent high traffic flow and heavy wheeled items.
From grand exhibition halls to noble museums and opulent theatres, public buildings must stand up to both potentially high traffic and the critique of the public eye. We keep the desired character of your building in mind, alongside safety and performance requirements, to find you the perfect INTRAsystems solution for your building.
With bespoke entrance matting, architectural grilles and creative ceilings, you can give your shopping centre the wow factor. High levels of traffic, especially in peak seasons, demand a matting solution you can trust; with smooth tiled floors in frequent use, absorbent matting is a health and safety mainstay.

Entrance Matting at Manchester Metropolitan University
Combining the former Mayble Tylecoate and Grosvenor buildings, MMU’s new Arts and Humanities hub uses INTRAflex XT entrance matting for a classic aesthetic.
With the listed portico and the internal glass vestibule at the main entrance providing some shelter from the elements, the architect specified a primary entrance matting system with INTRAlux Elite fibre inserts in Anthracite 607.
This fibre has an exceptional tuft count to provide 5.4l/m2 of absorption, combined with the highest Class 33 Wear Rating.
To enhance performance with this simple primary entrance matting system, the specification provides a substantial walk-off area.
With 19,550mm wide entrance matting, entry through the main portico doors offers nearly 10,000mm of walk-off in either direction. While the adjacent pass doors are protected by entrance matting that measures 3629mm front-to-back.
This substantial walk-off area exceeds the BS7953: 1999 minimum of 2100mmm (designed to accommodate a single wheelchair wheel revolution). It also exceeds the WELL standard recommendation of 3000mm for creating a healthy entrance.
At the rear entrance, the barrier matting stretches the full 5510mm width of the corridor. The revolving door and further 2587mm of walk-off ensure additional steps on the matting to keep floors slip-free.
Clear anodised INTRAflex XT entrance matting profiles, combined with Anthracite fibre is a classic look favoured by many clients.
Manufactured in oversize panels, the dividing t-bar profiles perfectly align with the wall junctions to provide a clean aesthetic; this also ensures the primary traffic zones are free of joins.
As one of the UK’s greenest universities, according to the People and Planet University League, a sustainable specification was essential.
Recycled and recyclable aluminium profiles, combined with 100% Econyl regenerated nylon fibres provide a truly sustainable specification.

Zonal Entrance Mat Design at 338 Euston Road
Using INTRAform DM with differing inserts in the internal and external zones, the architect has created a two-stage zonal system at 338 Euston Road.
Encompassing the angled and recessed doorway, the external matwell continues the line of the interior mat to square. Not just a design feature, this interesting combination of internal and external matting actually helps to boost performance.
In zone 1 external, the matting is inset with multidirectional rubber which scrapes away excess dirt and moisture from footwear and wheels.
With the entrance on the corner of the building, the flexible rubber fins ensure performance, whichever the direction of approach. In the primary mat, (zone 2, internal), the profiles are inset with highly absorbent INTRAlux Elite polyamide fibre.
These inserts remove and retain any remaining dirt and moisture to ensure a safe and slip-free entrance. With the revolving door sheltered within the recess, the matting here is also inset with fibre. Made from 100% Econyl regenerated nylon fibre and capable of absorbing 5.4l/m2, INTRAlux Elite is both a practical and sustainable choice.
Minimal design, maximum impact
The INTRAlux Elite fibre in Grey 606 matches tonally with the multidirectional rubber. The oversized entrance matting panels lessen the use of diving t-bars. While the positioning of the t-bars has been carefully planned to align with the threshold. Along with the glazed façade, these elements help maximise the impact of the architect’s design, to create a stunning entrance.
