You need to ensure the right sizing. There are many types of matting available. Some are designed for heavy foot traffic areas, while others are for walking spaces with light foot traffic. Also, consider delivery carts and trolleys that might be passing through this area.
Winter weather can bring snow and rain, which will create a lot more mud, dirt, and grime every day. It is important to choose entrance mats that are weather-resistant. This will depend on where your facility is located. Be aware of the climate in your local area when choosing the mat.
