Brighton Museum & Art Gallery is in the Royal Pavilion garden. It houses local, world and natural history collections and attracts approx. 260,000 visitors each year.
Matting was required to comply with Health & Safety regulations on all of the main front entrances. Industry research has shown that 94% of all dirt that enters a building is brought in on the soles of shoes or by wheeled traffic. This dirt creates a safety issue due to the increased risks of slips, trips or falls. The floors in the historic building can also suffer damage from grit bought in through the entrances.
The free Quantum SpeCialist Measuring SeNice, QSMS, was used and within 24 hours of contact by the flooring contractor, a Quantum Flooring Solutions surveyor had measured up and templated both the mats. This survey was completed outside of the museum opening hours so as not to negatively impact the
visitor experience at the museum.
Quantum Flooring Solutions also offered a "Aid and Assist" service on the day of install to oversee and guide the floor fitter on how to fit the Matting correctly.
The recessed Matting helps to prevent slips when the weather is wet by retaining moisture and loose material with it's textile insert. As well as a much safer entrance for the museum, the Matting will also help to prolong the life of floor and therefore reduce associated maintenance costs.
Well specified and installed entrance matting will reduce the risk of Slips, Trips and Falls.
