Transport Hub Issues

Travellers & employees need a safe, clean environment to transfer between drop-off and transport boarding areas. It helps maintain high levels of health & safety, as well as providing a desirable environment to wait for departures and for working employees.

Wet & dirty floors pose a direct threat to this desired environment.

85% of dirt & moisture in a building comes in on the soles of shoes.

Without good quality, heavy load-bearing open structure entrance matting, very little of this dirt & moisture will be stopped at the entrance because the matting soon becomes ineffective as the dirt & moisture simply sits on top, which is then tracked into the workplace by the next employee or visitor.
