Well Mats from Hygenie Washrooms

See how we transformed the entrance to 2 care homes with our Well Mat supply and maintenance service…

What is a Well Mat?

A Well Mat is a recess within the floor which is designed to allow a door/entrance mat to be installed so it sits flush with the surrounding floor.

First Impressions Count…

Your Well Mat is likely to be the first thing your clients see when they enter your premises. And everyone knows how important first impressions are! Is your Mat on brand? Is it clean and tidy? If you experience a high amount of footfall, you’ll notice how quickly your Mat gets dirty. Here’s an example of how we can help…

Hygenie Well Mats – Supply & Service

Hygenie Washrooms offer the supply and service of Well Mats for commercial premises across the Midlands (Birmingham, Oxford, Coventry, Nottingham and further afield).

We were recently asked to quote this service for a Care Home group, as their Well Mats were looking worse for wear.

We surveyed all of their 6 sites and recommended new Well Mats but on a ‘lift and lay’ service. This means we exchange their mats regularly on a service schedule, so they’re always kept fresh and clean.

We also suggested they chose darker coloured mats for a better look and to prevent them looking as dirty.

Please see pictures of the first two installs below…

Design of an accessible and inclusive built environment

Part 2: Buildings – Code of practice

In the British standard bs 8300 It states that at entrances to commercial buildings used by the general public, a suitable entrance flooring system to remove water and debris from the soles of shoes and wheelchair wheels should be provided, taking into account of the volume of pedestrian flow and the distance required to accommodate the circumference of a large wheelchair wheel.

It also states that deep pile carpets and coir matting on the surface of the floor or within a mat well should not be used.
