Main Features of Outdoor Door Mats


All Rubber Construction – Our outdoor rubber door mats are typically made from nitrile or natural rubber that provides great slip resistance. The waterproof and hard-wearing properties of rubber ensure proven all-season weather resistance and durability.


Dirt and dust prevention - The great outdoors is abundant in dust, dirt, moisture and many other annoying substances that can quickly ruin floors. With an outdoor mat, you can stop dirt at the entrance keeping floors protected and cleaner for longer.


Bevelled edges – Our outdoor door mats feature bevelled or ramped edges, for great accessibility and easy access for wheeled traffic.

 

Anti-Slip Properties –  Our clever mat designs, combined with Rubber’s natural grip properties, provides great all-round slip resistance on a variety of surfaces.


Textured / Patterned Surface – The textured or raised pattern surfaces found on outdoor door mats help drain excess water as well as scraping away any pieces of small debris such as small pebbles, dust and other grime from the outdoors.


Choosing Outdoor Entrance Mats


Do your door mats reduce the amount of water and dirt coming in from outside? The best outdoor or exterior mats remove large amounts of dirt and moisture, as well as snow and ice, from your visitor’s boots and shoes before they enter your premises. This could be through a rubber mat with holes which allows effective drainage of water and collects dirt, or a patterned surface that scrapes dirt and mud away from shoes. Outdoor entrance matting prolongs the life of the internal floor coverings and helps to ensure you meet your health and safety obligations.


Outdoor door mats can be used in almost all types of environments, from homes or small independent retailers and offices to large commercial premises. You'll need outdoor door matting for anywhere that has high footfall.


Our outdoor door mats are made from different materials with many designs to choose from, however they generally all have an abrasive texture to scrape soil, mud and dirt from boots and shoes. Thick rubber mats can also be porous or have a raised surface to allow water to drain off and many are waterproof. These heavy-duty door mats also come with safety features such as bevelled edges and are designed to grip onto the floor to help you avoid slips and trips.

Indoor Door Mats versus Outdoor Door Mats


Indoor and outdoor door mats have a few defining traits that make them suitable from their intended environments. Below are some of the main points between indoor door mats against outdoor door mats.


Feature

Indoor Door Mats

Outdoor Door Mats

Overlaying Surface

The overlaying surface is made from coir, cotton or a specialised carpet pile. Usually dyed to blend in with any décor, indoor door mats normally have one or two-toned coloured finishing, with the most popular designs ending in the darker range of the spectrum.

Unlike indoor mats, outdoor door mats are commonly found in a standard mat black finish with some sort of raised textured pattern or holes designed to catch and trap debris and moisture.

 

If you have a very large or unusual building entrance, you may need a custom-sized entrance mat. You should choose a size that ensures clients or customers will put both feet on the mat before entering the building.

Edges and Border

Indoor door mats will more than often have a rubber border around the edges and feature a designed choice.

Bevelled edges to allow wheeled traffic to enter – in compliance with DDA regulations.

Materials

Made from coconut coir, a dyed carpet plush or cotton. Normally features a rubber or nylon backing with an optional border for some entrance mats.

Made from weather resistant rubber compounds with high tensile strength and durability.

Height

The height varies from mat to mat with thin low-profile door mats starting from 5mm to chunkier bigger mats measuring up to 23mm thick.

Generally, most outdoor mats will have a low height profiles to stay flush underneath or near as to the door entrance. Additionally, high profile outdoor mats would only block and restrict access to visitors when opening and closing doors and passing thought entrances.

 


For best practice, we highly recommend having a combination of indoor door mats with outdoor door mats for maximum efficiency especially in cold and wet seasons where dirt and moisture are more likely to stain floors.


Outdoor Matting Cleaning Guide


Outdoor mats are notoriously easy to clean with only a high-pressured washer or garden hose needed. Simply soak down the mat with cold water for up to 3 minutes and wait for the mat to air-dry. While drying avoid, treading on the mat to avoid more dirt and grime staining the surface. Also, to remove more dirt, flip the mat over and soak away any debris that may have fallen underneath the surface.


Use the mat as normal after this has been completed.
