Grippy Carpeted Entrance Mat is the
world’s first adhesive-backed mat
that combines safety, performance
and stylish good looks.
Every day, as millions of people walk through
the doors of facilities large and small, they all
have one thing in common: they’re tracking
in whatever happens to be on the soles of
their shoes. The mess can be anything —
from dirt, grease, sand and salt to rain, mud
and melting snow — and once it comes in,
it’s no easy task to get it back out.
The High Cost of Cleaning Up
According to the International Sanitary
Supply Association (ISSA), as few as 1,000
people can track in 24 pounds of dirt over a
20-day period, at an estimated cleanup cost
of $600 per pound. Why such a steep price
tag? Professional cleaning associations say
that labor alone accounts for 90% of
building maintenance costs.
Enter the Entrance Mat
Every dollar you spend on prevention saves
$10 in cleaning costs, says Cleaning and
Maintenance Management. That’s why
entrance mats are the standard line of
defense at the front door. But there’s a catch.
ISSA estimates that only 30% of dirt is
trapped in the first three feet of the mat, and
that it takes 15 feet of walk-off to capture
85% of the mess and keep it from reaching
the floor. Even with an exterior scraper mat,
you still need enough coverage inside the
door for people to take at least six steps.
Fragmented Coverage Doesn’t Cut It
Let’s say your entrance requires 60 square

feet of coverage. That makes the ideal floor
mat a single 6' x 10'. But if you’re using
standard 3' x 5' carpeted mats, you’ll need
to piece four of them together to create
adequate coverage. This fragmented
approach is not only ineffective at keeping
your floor clean, it guarantees that the mats
will move out of position, creating gaps and
overlaps that become dangerous trip hazards.
One of the most popular carpeted entrance
mats weighs in at over 8 pounds per square
yard. The logic behind the bulk is that the
heavy rubber backing will keep the mat in
place and eliminate the tripping hazard.
But in many facilities, these 30–80 pound
behemoths must be removed before routine
floor cleaning. That means it’s someone’s job
to roll them up, lug them out of the way and
then drag them back into position when the
floor is dry — an expensive time waster that’s
also a back injury waiting to happen.
Time to Roll Out a Better Solution
Adhesive-backed mats aren’t just an
improvement over risky rubber-backed mats,
they’re a completely new solution. PIG
Grippy® Mats — the world’s first adhesive-backed mats — set the standard for good
looks, proven performance and ease of use.
Grippy Carpeted Entrance Mat, available in
a variety of rich colors and textures, makes
a great first impression— even in upscale
environments. The mat rolls out to the exact
length you need and can be cut to fit for
customized, continuous coverage with no

gaps or overlaps. The proprietary adhesive
backing keeps the mat firmly in place while
it’s in service, but peels up easily without
leaving residue when it’s time to replace it.
Grippy Mat Helps to Control Costs
Grippy Carpeted Entrance Mat’s bi-level
surface effectively traps dirt and moisture,
looks cleaner longer, and resists crushing
to extend performance life. Best of all, the
mat can be cleaned in place with a vacuum
or water extractor, saving time and labor.
Grippy Mat Helps to Mitigate Risk
Because Grippy Carpeted Mat never
bunches up, ripples or shifts, it dramatically
reduces slips, trips and falls and the liability
claims that come with them. This low-profile
mat is also certified by NFSI as a high-traction surface and is ADA compliant for
walkers and wheelchairs.
Here’s what Jackie says in a recent customer
review: “Grippy Carpeted Mat is better than
I expected. I bought the 36" x 25' roll to
replace rented mats that would constantly
bunch up and cause tripping hazards. I
placed 8 feet of it at two separate entrances,
and I am beyond happy with the results.”
