All you need to know about entrance mat standards - Commercial Flooring & Mats Vancouver
In North America every year thousand of persons are hurt by a slipping injury when they enter a business premises? Whereas high-quality entrance mats can have an important roll in avoiding unintentional slipping by eliminating humidity from walking shoes, low-dimensional or poor-quality mats often contribute to stumbling blocks and falling when they warp, bend or are turned over.
From 6-2012 "The industry leader in commercial entrance mats to reduce slippage, impact and crash. "These standards define requirements for the choice, fitting, inspection, servicing and servicing of entrance mats and walkers in commercial establishments with the aim of minimising slippage, stumbling and falling. Much of these injuries are due to slipping, tripping and falling risks such as soft ground and sands, puddle dampness, uneven corners and incorrect use of entrance mats and mats.
Continuing to bring trial and case actions, this new norm has contributed to defining the commercial operator's responsibility for the security and well-being of the population. Section 6 clearly sets out the industrial standards of grooming for the correct use, servicing and periodicity of entrance mat inspections and influences the way property owner should groom, survey and choose mats.
What is contained in the norm? Paragraph 3 of the norm deals with the back of mats and their capacity to avoid movements when they are placed on the ground. We recommend that the mats have a high tension backing, such as a durable structured PVC or non-slip rubberised back. Matting without traction-strong backs is less robust and more prone to motion during operation, which raises the risks of kinks and rolling edges that can significantly increase the chances of slipping, tripping and falling.
Paragraph 5 of the norm deals with the correct choice of mats in terms of their location and use, and defines four different areas, including: exterior, vestibule, interior and other areas. Wherever the mats are outside a structure, the mats should be either a deep ened mats, a wiping mats, or a wiping mats that can either be loosely placed or fixed in a deep well.
It is also important to remember that the norm states that the choice of mats for the inner bowl is determined by the use of outside mats and that if a scraping mats is used outside, the mats in the bowl must be a scraping or dry mats. If, however, a scraping mats is not used outside, the anteroom mats must be either a scraping or a wiping scraping.
If an outdoor squeegee is used, the interior pad must be a squeegee or squeegee. If no mats are used outside, the inner mats must both scratch and cure. Squeegee mats are the second mats at the entrance. A recent Windsor Company whitepaper states that a 6 ft entrance carpet typically removes only 40% of the floor and humidity and that it requires about 36 ft mats to eliminate 99% of the floor and humidity.
Paragraphs 7 and 8 deal with the correct servicing and upkeep of entrance mats and at the same time provide guidance on reducing new risks arising from incorrect use of entrance mats. Those paragraphs stipulate that'[m]ats may not be used in any way other than for their designated purpose' and that'woven mats shall wave, crinkle or have sharp corners, the mats shall be taken out of operation and shall be substituted by mats lying level', and that when a mats bends, either the state causing the bends of the mats shall be rectified or the mats shall be restrained or taken out of operation and shall be substituted.
" In addition, the norm stipulates that "mats must be laid on a neat, arid surface and placed in such a way that they do not overlay. If the mats are not lying level, the mats shall be fixed to the ground in such a way that they are lying level or are taken out of use.
" Since most commercial premises have inputs that are bigger than the usual 3×10 or 4×6 mats that can be covered sufficiently, it is easily understood why tailor-made mats are a need and not a luxurious option. Amount of mats removing the floor is not statical or fixated. In unfavourable climates, an extra mat should be used to complement the drying mat, or the service interval should be raised in relation to the climates (i.e. frequently wet/dry suction to return the mat to full absorbency).
Using bigger mats whenever possible reduces the probability of migrating the mats due to the bigger weight of the bigger mats.
