Although we are still enjoying the summer season, winter is soon going to become a reality, which is why businesses should start to think about their pre-winter preparations. One product that should feature on your checklist is outdoor mats! Outdoor mats can often be overlooked; however, these seemingly simple items can significantly enhance the safety, cleanliness, and aesthetics of your property during the colder season. Here at Grimeford Mill, we are a leading UK manufacturer of outdoor mats, and we are here to help you find the right matting solution for the upcoming winter.

Enhance Safety with Non-Slip Matting

The winter months can bring along ice, frost, and increased rainfall, which could escalate the number of slip-and-fall accidents that happen on your premises. To protect your staff and visitors, outdoor matting is a cost-effective solution, specifically designed to help counteract these issues. All of our outdoor mats are manufactured out of durable rubber or feature a non-slip backing. Each mat is constructed out of heavy-duty materials, designed to deliver excellent grip and traction. Our mats significantly reduce the probability of accidents occurring on your business premises, providing a safe and comfortable walkway, despite the weather.

Keep Interiors Clean with Outdoor Mats

In addition to reducing accidents, outdoor mats can help keep your entranceways and interiors clean and hygienic. Alongside increased moisture, footwear can carry mud, grit, and other debris into your building. This unwanted intrusion can quickly lead to dirty and slippery floors, requiring you to spend more time cleaning the area. High-quality outdoor mats can help busy businesses by effectively trapping dirt and moisture before it can be tracked further indoors. This first line of defence can help to keep your interior spaces clean and presentable, providing a lasting impression on new visitors. Furthermore, the removal of dirt and debris can also reduce the wear and tear on your flooring, saving you the cost of premature refurbishments.

Why Should You Prepare Now?

As we all know, British weather can be unpredictable, especially towards wintertime. Early preparation ensures that you are not caught off guard when your business is faced with sudden frost or heavy snowfall. Ordering your mats with us in advance guarantees their timely arrival and installation before the worst of winter hits, providing peace of mind for your business. Our outdoor mats are not only beneficial to your business, but they are an investment for you, your staff, and visitors, lasting many years to come.

Choosing the Right Type of Outdoor Matting

With a vast range of outdoor mats designed to suit a variety of needs and preferences, it can be difficult to choose the right one for your business, but we are here to help! When purchasing an outdoor mat, you might want to bear in mind the following aspects:

Purpose: identify the main function the mat needs to serve, whether it's scraping off dirt, soaking up moisture, or displaying your brand logo.

Dimensions: take accurate measurements of the area where you plan to position the mat and opt for a size that fits in the space perfectly. If you require additional help with measurements, please feel free to contact us and our expert team will be happy to help. We also offer made-to-measure options on our outdoor mats.

Material Type: search for mats constructed from durable, weather-proof materials such as rubber or artificial fibres. Here at Grimeford Mill, all of our outdoor mats are manufactured out of high-quality materials, so you can rest assured that you will receive a mat that lives up to your expectations. Our Outdoor Rubber Mat is created out of heavy-duty textured rubber, whilst our Outdoor Scraper Mats feature durable polypropylene fibres and latex pre-coat backing.

Safety: confirm that the mat possesses anti-slip features to minimise the risk of falls and slips. All of the mats offered at Grimeford Mill are non-slip.

Maintenance: if your business is busy with limited time to spare, you will want to choose a mat which is low-maintenance and easy to clean. Our outdoor rubber mats can simply be hosed down with water to remove trapped dirt and debris. For more stubborn areas, you can also use a hard bristled brush to loosen the dirt.

Investing in quality outdoor mats is a simple yet effective way to improve safety, cleanliness, and brand visibility on your business premises during winter. So, why wait?
