Back To School – Mats for the Classroom

Back to School Mats

With Summer coming to an end, schools across the country are preparing to re-open for the new Autumn term, making now the perfect time to consider new school entrance mats for your school’s entrances, exits and kitchens.

Not only will effective door matting protect pupils, visitors and employees from slipping on wet, hazardous floors, but they will also protect the surface of your floor. Without entrance matting, 1,500 people alone, can remove 42% of the finish from your floor.

School Logo Door Mats

Logo matting is a popular choice with schools as it instantly brighten entrances and exits and are a great way to reinforce the schools brand colours, emblem or message. Primary schools and nurseries often ask pupils to draw the school emblem which they then send to us and have this printed onto the mat. This adds a really personal touch and gets the children involved.

Free artwork visuals are always created prior to order, with no commitment to order. This process allows you to view the mat prior to printing and allows you to make any necessary alterations.

Choose from;

Printed
Coir
Outdoor brush
Outdoor rubber

Indoor Door Mats for School, Nursery & Universities

Whatever colour you require your matting to be, we can manufacture it!

There is a huge range of indoor entrance mats to choose from to trap unwanted dirt, dust, water and grit, however, we selected the five best sellers chosen by schools.  Each product is extremely durable, hardwearing and designed to withstand heavy foot traffic. Two of the products are also fully washable.

The mats we recommend for schools are all manufactured with a premium nitrile rubber border and backing that will not crack, chip or bend and ensures the mat remains firmly in place.

Stop Slips in School with Outdoor Door Mats


80% of the dust, dirt and grime in a building is “tracked in” from the outside, therefore, we always recommend a dual mat solution when purchasing mats. An external mat will scrape shoes clean, while the indoor mat wipes shoes dry resulting in beautifully clean floors. With many kids rushing into the entrances, the risk of slippery surfaces is high, but outdoor door mats will help reduce this.

We also have options for playground areas, ideal to help protect little ones at playtime.

Our best-selling outdoor products for schools are;

Rubber scraper
Rubber bristle
Rubber honeycomb

School Canteen & Kitchen Floor Mats


Kitchen mats are manufactured using a resilient nitrile rubber construction, which is designed to reduce fatigue of long-standing jobs in the kitchen and helps prevent impact breakage. The textured surface provides secure footing whilst the unique holes allow drainage and cleanliness. The rubber is also oil and grease resistant.
