More information about Heavy Duty Entrance Mats

Heavy-duty Entrance Mats help create a positive experience for your visitors while keeping floors clean and safe. Making the first impression is crucial in your workplace, so make sure to use heavy-duty commercial entrance mats if you want to impress your customers.

High-quality commercial-grade entrance matting can help maintain your professional image, and at First Mats, we stock a range of features that suit your requirements and budget. Whether for a shop, reception area, or busy train station, we offer a selection of heavy-duty commercial entrance mats suitable for almost any environment.

Heavy Duty Entrance Mat Sizes

At First Mats, we understand that not all premises are the same, so we offer several made to measure door mats available in roll widths ranging from 90cm wide to 200cm wide. With this option, you don't have to limit yourself to standard-sized options. Instead, you can choose a heavy duty door mat at any length you need, allowing you to take visitors all the way up to a reception desk or fill that awkwardly shaped entrance hall.

One of the great options you may want to consider is the EntryBrush. This rough texture makes it a great "scraper" mat, which means that it is an excellent choice in environments where people entering the building are likely to have mud and debris on their feet, as these mats will help to scrape the dirt away.

What Makes a Heavy Duty Door Mat?

You will want to ensure that your heavy duty commercial door mat can cope with higher traffic volumes in busy entrances, such as schools and airports. Heavy duty entrance mats are made possible by combining a synthetic plush material attached to a heavy-duty rubber backing.

For high-traffic commercial environments, we stock extra-durable entrance mats such as the AquaProtect Absorbent Door Mat, which scores the highest in each rated category – Crush Resistance, Soil Resistance and Water Retention. 

For the ultimate "wow factor", why not consider ordering a custom-made logo mat with your own banding and colours? Simply visit our Logo Mats page and complete the enquiry form to get a free quote.

Most Absorbent Heavy Duty Door Mats

One of the challenges that commercial premises must face is the weather. Come rain or shine, customers and other visitors will still expect to enter a building with a clean and dry floor, but in heavy rain or snow, the default fair weather entrance mats may need help to cope.

For businesses open all year round, especially shops and retail centres, it may be worth considering stocking some mats that will only be used in these challenging conditions. Using absorbent heavy duty entrance mats will help to keep water away from the floors and reduce the risk of slip accidents. Consider our AquaProtect mat, which can absorb up to 6 litres of water per square metre.

Heavy Duty Door Mats for Outside

One of the best ways to keep your internal floors clean is to keep the dirt outside using an outdoor door mat. Unlike indoor door mats, made from absorbent carpet piles, the outdoor mats are made from water-repellant materials such as rubber and allow rainwater to drain away through holes in the mat's backing.

See the EntraGuard Rubber Door mat, which features a pattern of holes that scrape mud and stones and even show away from shoes. It is popular with schools and commercial entrances.

Our BrushScrape mat is a unique outdoor door mat that looks like a carpeted indoor mat, but with coarse synthetic fibres that scrape dirt from shoes without absorbing water.

Mat Cleaning and Maintenance

Cleaning your commercial entrance mat will prolong its lifespan, giving you even greater value for money. Some entrance mats, such as the popular Renown Mat, can be cleaned in a commercial or domestic washing machine (depending on the size of the mat.) In most cases, though, simply vacuuming over the top of the mat, when dry, will remove most of the dirt and stones captured from visitors' feet.

Around 80% of dirt in a building is carried in on people's shoes, so regularly cleaning your mat can save you from having to clean the surrounding floors as often, reducing maintenance costs.

Note: Most door mats are designed for smooth floors such as tiles or wood. For soft floors, see our range of Door Mats for Carpet Floors.


All of the mats in this category are heavy-duty mats intended for busy commercial entrances, but remember to consider your requirements to make sure you choose the right one.

  • Does your mat need to be absorbent?
  • Does it need to be resistant to mud intrusion?
  • Are you looking for a low-cost mat?
  • or able to cope with very high volumes of foot traffic?

For any questions or more information about any of the mats in our range, please contact us, and we will be more than happy to assist.
