customize their system to include one or all of the programs for
convenient, cost-effective protection. From mats designed for revolving
doors and unique entryways to mats suited for poolside areas, Cintas has
the appropriate system to improve the image of any property.
"Hotels experience extensive traffic yet must continuously promote a
positive brand image," said Mike Thompson, Senior Vice President, Cintas
Facility Services. "From 30 to 3,000-room properties, our versatile
hospitality mat system provides a complete service offering to help
hotels elevate image, improve productivity, reduce housekeeping costs
and keep guests safe."
Within the new hospitality mat system, hoteliers have the opportunity to
select from the following options:
Rental Program. Cintas' rental mat service captures contaminants
and moisture before customers track it through a hotel, keeping floors
dry and clean. The program includes prompt and reliable pick-up,
cleaning and delivery on a routine basis. Cintas' service reduces
upfront inventory costs and ensures mats won't become saturated with
contaminants. The mats are designed to protect all essential areas
including entrance zones, high risk zones, high traffic zones and
productivity zones. Rental mats include:
Standard Carpet Mats prevent soil and moisture from being
tracked throughout a hotel. They are equipped with gripper backs,
beveled edges and a rubber base to keep mats in place and reduce slips
and falls. They are ideal for entrance, high risk, high traffic and
Logo/Message Mats are standard carpet mats with personalized
logo and message options. This enables businesses to promote their
brand with vivid lasting colors while reassuring guests that they are

no-trip surface to promote a safe work environment. Ideal for high
risk and productivity zones, they resist oil and grease. Their
anti-fatigue properties reduce employee leg stress while their
antimicrobial properties prevent bacterial growth.
Scraper Mats are ideal for entrance and high risk zones,
trapping moisture and dirt before it enters the facility. Constructed
of tacky rubber to collect contaminants, scraper mats can hold up to a
gallon of water. Their special backing enables water to aerate to keep
the mat in place while their anti-static properties protect electrical
equipment from static shock.

such as lobby or entrance mats. Cintas offers its entire mat line via
direct sale and can brand any mat with a customized logo or message to
further enhance image. Direct purchase mats include:
