KEEP IT GREEN

One of the most important parts of the Green Building Program is concern for the environment, including the use of products that can help reduce the need for landfills. There are two key issues with entrance mats and anti-fatigue mats:

1. THE COMPOSITION OF THE MAT

Many of our products have recycled content that prevents post-consumer or post-industrial products from entering landfills, thus preserving our natural resources.

2. THE PERFORMANCE LIFE OF THE MAT

High-performance mats can have a performance life of many years. Our Performance, Prestige, Logo and Ergonomic Collections have an extended Total Confidence Warranty that ensures a productive and effective life. To perform efficiently in a green building, sustainability is key. Inexpensive, low-performance mats will need to be replaced more frequently causing a disposal issue.

DID YOU KNOW?

The proper use of entrance mats is recognized by the Green Building Council of Canada, under LEED® certification system (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), visioning a transformed built environment leading to a sustainable future. Some Mat Tech products can contribute in obtaining 2 credits:

1 Credit* : "Permanently use the entrance matting system to capture dirt, particles etc. from entering the building at all high volume entrances"

1 Credit** : Use material with recycled content in order that the sum […] constitutes at least 7.5% of the total value of the material in the project.
