Ms. Gopal Kaushik, Country Manager Marketing & Business DevelopmentLindström India said “MATS in India are not really looked into seriously, and this is what we wanted to change. On average, 70% of the cleaning costs of premises is spent on the floors and around 80% of the dirt inside premises is carried in through the footsteps. Once set up correctly, our Mat Services enable significant savings in the cleaning, maintenance costs of the premises and also increase their comfort and visual appeal in numerous ways”.

The Set of yarn in these MATS is twisted and tufted in a backing fabric and then vulcanized into the rubber.

As per ETSA (European Textile Services Association), only four steps on the mats can remove upto 80% of the dirt from the shoes. Only about 10% of absorbed dirt and grime can be vacuumed from regular carpets or mats. Lindström’s 1m2 of mat can gather up to 2.3 litres of moisture, 2.0 kg of dirt making it suitable for usage year around be it dry summers or monsoon season.

The various varieties of Lindström’s unique MATS on rent include Ergonomic Rubber mats (designed to reduce fatigue and discomfort as well as slips and trips by providing a cushioned rubber surface for standing workers), Entrance mats (placed at the entrance of an office or building to help trap dirt and moisture from shoes), Logo mats/Branding mats (can be used as a branding and marketing tool), Safety mats (designed to provide additional traction and slip resistance in areas where spills or wet conditions may occur) and Scraper mats (placed at the entrance of an office or designed to remove dirt and debris from shoes).

buildings” further continued Mr. Kaushik.
