Walk off mats are commonly known as entrance (or entranceway) mats. Good walk off mats can significantly reduce the amount of dirt and debris that is tracked into a building or facility, significantly reducing the amount of cleaning that needs to be done.

How do Walk Off Mats Work?

Walk off mats work by scraping and wiping debris from the soles of shoes worn by persons entering a building or facility. Scraper walk off mats feature raised structures on the mat surface that dislodge debris from shoe soles. Wiper walk off mats, in contrast, feature carpeted surfaces that absorb moisture and loose debris as visitors pass through a facility’s entranceway. Commercial-grade walk off mats are especially designed for the higher foot traffic normally encountered in larger buildings and facilities.

How Should Walk Off Mats be Used?

Simply buying and placing good commercial-grade walk off mats is not enough. Rather, some thought should be given to developing a simple walk off mat strategy for building entranceways. This will produce much better results and significantly lower cleaning costs.

What are the Components of a Good Walk Off Mat Strategy?

A good walk off mat strategy for an entranceway has the following components:
