The Atlas floor runner mat is optimized for wiping footwear and absorbing moisture, making it an ideal mat for entrances, hallways, vestibules, and lobbies. This oversized commercial quality runner is ideal for large spaces such as office or retail vestibules, and hallways. This charcoal entrance wiper mat is designed for heavy foot traffic and durability to withstand wear. The 5-rib needlepunch top surface material is 30% heavier than standard residential quality mats. The commercial-grade quality of the vinyl backing on the mat is thicker than standard residential mats, adding more overall weight and longevity.. Vinyl backing grips surfaces to minimize slippage while protecting floors from moisture, salt and eroding chemicals. Use the Atlas mat on the inside of the building, coupled with a scraper mat on the outside of the entrance to ensure a complete floor protection system.
