Entrance matting systems on trains will save rail operators time and money

Entrance systems in vehicles are the unsung heroes that do their job invisibly and without acknowledgement of the bigger audience. Forbo Flooring‘s entrance matting system, Coral FR, is one of those underestimated solutions.

To prevent moisture and dirt coming into the vehicle, a good entrance system in the form of a mat or grid shape is important – it wipes off sand, water and snow without passengers actively having to wipe their feet.  A good entrance system will not only improve cleanliness throughout the train, but will also reduce maintenance costs as well as prolonging the life of other floor coverings.
