A rubber reinforced "bi-level" cleaning surface is permanently molded into the product, eliminating crushing of the surface and insuring long term, cleaning effectiveness. The Eco carpet matting is available in a variety of sizes and colors to match any decor.

These products are suitable for airports, hotels and motels, schools, retail stores, healthcare facilities, restaurants, grocery stores, plant entrances and office buildings.
