Entrance Matting CPD

We take a look at ensuring that the right product is selected for the right environment so your client isn’t paying too much for an over-engineered entrance matting system. Neither should they be getting something that creates a false economy by being cheap and ineffective.

CPD is known as Continual Professional Development and its purpose is to remind professionals about all facets of design, construction and abiding regulations. We deeply respect the CPD procedure and take pride on adapting quickly to any changes.

Then there are other costs to take into account in the workplace such as how much importance the HSE puts on effective products, and the impact they have on safety underfoot. HSE has published a brilliant article on ‘Slips and Trips – Why does it matter‘ – which sums up why it is so important.

Equality Act 2010 legislation and Part M of the Building Regulations are also looked at, and how matting can impact all forms of disability. For example, how much matting do we need for a full revolution of a wheelchair wheel?

With so many different types of matting now available, we also look at how the products chosen should become part of the design process rather than a compromised afterthought. Matting is much more than just ‘another product’!
