Stunning new Volvo Showroom protected and enhanced by Advance Entrance Matting Systems

Published May 1, 2015


The design of the new Volvo showroom in Greenlane reflects the qualities of design and safety that Volvo is well known for the world over.

Ensuring that this environment remains clean and safe is a correctly specified system of Entrance Matting from Advance Flooring. On the exterior of the building ReTread Entrance Mats have been used, this attractive aluminium strip mat with a Recycled Rubber infill strip reduces the amount of dirt, grit and leaves entering the building whilst knocking the initial moisture off visitors shoes. Critically though the inserts do not absorb the water thus avoiding becoming a water trap.

Then on the interior the proven system of CoralTread has been used with its highly water absorbent inserts, this ensures that by the time people move on to the smooth ceramic tile floor the possibility of slip and fall accidents has been minimised all the while trapping moisture and dirt in the entrance mats keeping the rest of the showroom looking great.

People entering a building do not often stop and wipe their feet so it’s important that an entrance mat is long enough to ensure there are enough contacts between the entry matting and the soles of shoes to minimise the amount of dirt carried into the building. The New Zealand Building Code’s recommendation is that a mat should have a minimum dimension of 1.8m from front to back which allows for 2 contacts of each foot.
