Entrance Matting for Commercial Office - First AND Second Impressions Count
Creating a clean, safe and welcoming environment within a commercial office building results in a positive impression for visitors and employees alike. Choosing an effective barrier matting system can help achieve this.
Primary barrier matting is an ideal solution for exterior and interior entrances and, when installed as the first point of contact, will help to remove and retain dirt and moisture.
This is often the focus for many specifiers and installers, however, there is a risk that some residual moisture is carried beyond the primary matting system. When coupled with the fact that many commercial offices, especially in cities, typically opt for terrazzo, marble or other hard flooring, this can significantly increase the risk of slips.
Considering the above, understanding walkways and other areas moisture may originate from, it’s possible to use secondary matting to add additional performance throughout a building and instil confidence underfoot.
Barrier matting also provides an effective solution to reducing maintenance costs by protecting the appearance of surrounding floorcoverings, ensuring great impressions are made repeatedly.

Gradus makes the grade for interior solutions at the University of Hull
The new £28 million Health Campus boasts the new five-storey Allam Building, which features a mock operating theatre, hospital ward and intensive care unit. This provides an innovative learning environment to train doctors, nurses and healthcare workers, and allows students to learn practical skills in a clinical environment.
Gradus supplied and fitted a range of wall protection systems for the new development, including Bed Head Protectors, High Impact and Standard PVCu Corner Guards and dual height Wall Guards. The Bed Head Protectors have been specified to provide maximum protection against damage caused by frequently moved beds. They are a designed to help prevent damage to walls and wall mounted equipment from beds that are continuously moved up and down as well as in and out.
Corner guards and dual height wall guards were installed to protect circulation areas from scuffs and scrapes and aid navigation for building users.
Katie Knass, Press Officer for the University of Hull, commented: “The training facility in the Allam Building is expected to experience heavy impact and abrasion caused by beds, trolleys and medical equipment. As a result, we needed a wall protection package that would offer a high level of protection without detracting from the interior design. Gradus were on hand at every step of the specification to offer guidance and advice.
“The new range of 34 colours meant we had plenty of choice and were able to select a design that would complement the building’s new modern interior and produce a great finished look.”
Maria Morgan, Product Manager at Gradus, said: “The new wall protection profiles are proving immensely popular and the colour options are perfect for contemporary interiors in healthcare and education settings such as this. The wall protection products specified for the University of Hull work together to reduce ongoing repair and maintenance costs, and will also protect the appearance of the building’s interior in the long-term.”
Gradus ADXT2 aluminium XT stair edgings and Esplanade 5000HD primary barrier matting were also specified for the project. Esplanade 5000HD was installed at the entry point of the Allam Building to minimise the amount of dirt and debris tracked into the facility. This not only enhances the buildings safety, but also improves the lifecycle of surrounding floor coverings. Gradus’ market-leading XT range of stair edgings feature an insert that extends around the leading edge of the profile to increase underfoot contact with the slip-resistant element of the stair edging, reducing the risk of slips, trips and falls on stairs.
