Have you ever bought one of those two-sided rolls of 4â€ wide masking tape designed for removing lint from your clothing, or for whatever purpose double-sided tape can be used? I LOVE those things! Well, what if you could have something like that for your shoes, or for the shoes of visitors to your home or work place that requires dirt and other contaminants not be tracked into a certain area? Sticky, or tacky mats are among the greatest of inventions in the world of commercial or industrial trade show flooring products.
These pads of sticky, two-sided mats are fantastic for capturing grime that invariably clings to the bottoms of our shoes. The pads of sticky mats come in a wide variety of dimensions, from 18â€ x 36â€ up to 36â€ x 46â€ [with several sizes in between], and peel off just like those rolls of lint tape you use on your clothes. These would be a great â€œpost matâ€ to put down, just after visitors step onto your entrance mats, which will catch heavier grime and moisture.

Are you looking for durable, luxury, indoor carpet mats to protect interior floors? Most people naturally think of welcome mats or outdoor entrance mats for walkways and front porches; but what about something for just inside the doorway, or even a breezeway, for when people are in a hurry to get out of the rain, sleet, or snow, and they donâ€™t take enough time to wipe their feet on your decorative welcome mat?
Then, once inside, they apologize for getting your floors all wet and/or muddy, and you keep thinking, â€œBoyâ€¦we sure need some mats for just inside the door for people to clean their feet off!â€ Itâ€™s at times like those you realize you have no one to blame but yourself for not putting down some good entrance mats to catch not only the water and grime, but also to protect your own liability against falls due to slippery floors.

Most of todayâ€™s outdoor entrance mats are made from 100% durable, recycled rubber, and have either a carpet top surfaceâ€”or something similarâ€”that is designed to catch grime and dust. If youâ€™re not looking for a decorative door mat, but something more conservative, the rib pattern door mat [pictured] is always an excellent choice, with a durable vinyl backing, and are more economically priced if your budget canâ€™t handle something â€œhigher endâ€ and yet you need to â€œcover your tracksâ€ in regards to providing mats for people to wipe their feet on.
And then, once your budget increases, you might want to consider something such as the ever popular CleanScrapeTM outdoor entrance mats, which are much heavier duty, UV resistant, meaning they wonâ€™t fade in sunlight, and the most aggressive entrance mats on the market, made with an eco-friendly, recycled rubber base.

Decorative welcome mats arenâ€™t appropriate for most commercial settings. Maybe youâ€™re a commercial professional developer who has just built a nice facility to serve as your model office space, and you want to make a nice presentation. Are home-style door mats going to be the appropriate choice for your situation? Wellâ€¦not likely; not if you want to make an impression of professionalism that doesnâ€™t smack of real estate agent, when youâ€™re dealing with a different group of professionals.
Thank goodness, then, there are tough, sharp-looking, commercial entrance mats that will provide nice footing to every entryway, will pick up impurities on peopleâ€™s feet, and will even be suitable to place in your breezeway, and just inside the door, before visitors and employees step onto, perhaps, nice, hardwood floors.

Typically, the most attractive or impressive door mats most of us see are something ornate on the front porch of a highbrow residence or perhaps multimillion dollar business, orâ€¦maybe at the entrance of a Hollywood studio.Â If you take a stroll through an upscale business park, you will most likely run across a few businesses that have had their own custom logo door mats with the company logo embroidered, stamped, or painted on the entrance mat, or mats in the breezeway.
If you own a business and have always wanted your own company logo mats for your place of business or as promotional items, you can have your own mats custom made in either bulk orders or single mats; no order is too big or small.Â Custom logo mats really ad that bit of pizazz your business has been missing all along.Â So why not trade out your conservative entrance mats for some distinctive, custom logo mats with your company logo or motto deeply embedded in the mat material?

Weâ€™ve said the older, time-tested, rubber outdoor entrance mat is still around in the world of door mats, and we meant it!Â The reason being?Â Rubber mats for outdoor use, are very practical and desirable; some basic needs just donâ€™t change, and durable, rubber door mats are appropriate for so many situations.
For instance, if you have a patio or some stone or brick steps where you would like to place a large, rubber mat to protect against slips when your patio is wet, covered in ice, or simply where youâ€™d like a softer place for people to step, or a where a need for people to wipe their feet, perhaps decorative front door mats arenâ€™t really what you would look for to suit your needs.Â That’s one instance when the “good, old-fashioned”, rubber outdoor entrance mat just can’t be beat!

When youâ€™re looking for entrance door mats with carpet top, rubber welcome mats just donâ€™t cut it, now do they?Â Sure, recycled rubber door mats are gorgeous and are great for greeting guests, who need to wipe their shoes, but you canâ€™t expect those arriving at your business or even home to stand out in the rain, if you donâ€™t have a covered porch, wiping their feetâ€”especially if they donâ€™t happen to have an umbrella, now can you?
And you donâ€™t have to worry about spending an arm and a leg for decent entrance mats, either.Â Low cost entry door mats are readily available and come in a variety of colors and appearances to fit most any taste and needâ€”typically in conservative profiles, so as not to draw unwanted attention to them selves.

If you own your own company and either frequently or occasionally find a need for trade show flooring to place beneath display cases for showcasing your goods, you can find just what youâ€™re looking for in a remarkable variety of styles, colors, textures, and applicationsâ€”all in one place.
Perhaps you donâ€™t need a whole lot of flooring to cover a large area; in which case, you might get by throwing down a few indoor carpet entrance mats, which would work nicely if your cases arenâ€™t too large or heavy. Then, once youâ€™ve returned to your office, those mats could continue to serve you just outside your front door, or even just inside as added protection for your nicer, more permanent flooring. The point is, you donâ€™t have to invest in large segments of trade show flooring tiles or rolled flooring to suit your needs.
