People entering a building do not often stop and wipe their feet so its important that an entrance mat is long enough to ensure there are enough contacts between the entry matting and the soles of shoes to minimise the amount of dirt carried into the building. The Australian and New Zealand’s codes recommendation is that a mat should have a minimum dimension of 1.8 metres from front to back which allows for 2 contacts of each foot. Refer Acceptable Solution D1/AS1 Access Routes.
