Entrance Defense

Entrance Zones 1 Outside 2 Outside Inside 3 Inside

A well designed entrance system plays a vital role in providing a safe, clean and attractive entrance way and environment. The best and most cost effective solution for decreasing maintenance costs is an effective entrance matting system. vG’s Entrance Defense can be a 1,2 or 3 part system; performance is ranked by the number of zones utilized. A single mat achieves good results, but a three-part entrance matting system achieves superior performance.

ZONE 1
Outside:
Scrapes Heavy Debris.

According to TRSA research, within commercial buildings more than 80% of the dust, dirt and grime is tracked in from the outside via footwear. This tracked-in soil affects not only the appearance of interiors, but also the quality of air.

ZONE 2
Outside & Inside:
Cleans & Absorbs Moisture.

TRSA studies also show that one square yard of commercial carpeting can accumulate a pound of dirt per week and up to two pounds during wet weather.

ZONE 3
Inside:
Absorbs Moisture & Dries.

According to TRSA research, within commercial buildings more than 80% of the dust, dirt and grime is tracked in from the outside via footwear. This tracked-in soil affects not only the appearance of interiors, but also the quality of air.

 

We suggest, along with commercial flooring experts, that a minimum of 5 to 6 steps or 18 linear feet from Zone 1 to Zone 3 is required for a zone system to effectively keep dirt out. By using any one of our walk-off products, you will lower your maintenance costs, achieve better air quality and have a safer building by reducing the opportunity of slip-fall accidents. Let vG’s floor covering experts customize your entrance way.
