Protect Your Floors With Matting
Consider the following four areas for matting placement to help limit indoor contaminants from slips, trips and falls:
- Entrance zones
These areas include front and back entrances and peripheral doors that lead to the outdoors.
- High-risk zones
Zones of increased risk include transitional walkways between risk areas.
For example, spaces between the kitchen and front-of-house areas or offices and hallways leading from restrooms to dining areas are particularly susceptible.
- High-traffic zones
Most hallways and corridors in restaurants are considered to be high-traffic zones and should be protected with a matting program.
Also, consider cashier and check-out stations, as there is often increased foot traffic in these locations.
- Productivity zones
Areas where staff members or patrons frequently stand, such as work stations, check-out counters or produce kiosks, are considered to be productivity zones that can benefit from the placement of matting.
