by Brianna Crandall — April 24, 2019 — As facilities managers (FMs) well know, adverse weather can wreak havoc on a business’s floors. From tracked-in debris such as sand, salt and mud, to soggy carpets and slippery floors, unsightly floors can run rampant no matter the season. To help businesses maintain clean and dry floors, Specialized workplace products and services provider Cintas Corporation recently introduced the Active Scraper Floor Mat.
Designed to reduce the amount of dirt and moisture being tracked into a facility, the Cintas Active Scraper Floor Mat uses active blades of various heights that move when walked over to scrape particles and grime off shoes. The mat’s unique design also contains deep channels and drainage holes to help keep accumulated dirt and moisture away from shoes, making it suitable for outdoor use in front of entryways.
Due to the blades’ innovative high-performance design, the mat can be placed in any direction, as the blade pattern will work no matter which direction the mat is walked on. This allows the mat to capture three times more dirt and debris than traditional mats, keeping moisture and debris outside where it belongs, claims Cintas.
Sean Mulcahey, marketing manager, Cintas, remarked:
Eighty percent of dirt within a facility is tracked in from the outside. The Cintas Active Scraper Floor Mat acts as a first line of defense against dirt and debris, allowing businesses to proactively protect and care for floors no matter the weather forecast.
When paired with an additional interior mat as part of a dual mat system, businesses can save precious time previously spent sweeping and mopping floors — not to mention the money savings associated with increased floor protection, points out Cintas.
