Filling the entire vestibule, INTRAflex XT entrance matting becomes part of the clean, modern aesthetic at Two New Bailey Square in Manchester.
Quality, Sustainable Design
Offering 188,500 sq ft of Grade A office space, Two New Bailey Square balances high quality finishes and sustainability, to achieve a BREAAM Excellent rating. Manufactured from 100% recycled aluminium, and inset with 100% regenerated nylon fibre, INTRAflex XT entrance matting is perfectly aligned with the building’s design ethos.
The high strength aluminium system comes with a 10-year warranty, while INTRAlux Elite’s dense tufting provides superior absorption and retention. By minimising the influx of dirt and moisture, an effective entrance matting system helps minimise the need for cleaning and extend the lifespan of the flooring, fittings and finishes.
The size of this entrance mat is also key to maintaining the building’s high standards of presentation. The BS 7953:1999 recommends a minimum of 2100mm, based on one rotation of a wheelchair wheel, 6000mm+ is an effective length for high traffic buildings.
By filling the entire vestibule with a mat measuring almost 11,000 x 8000mm, the architect’s design exceeds minimum recommendations. This design offers maximum footsteps and wheel rotations before visitors reach the tiled floor, to retain more dirt and moisture.
The same entrance matting system is installed in the cycle store, which offers storage for 102 bikes. This additional matting helps remove moisture and debris from wheels to further prevent dirt and moisture entering the main building.
