Lingen, January 2020 – A building’s entrance always plays a key role in the overall architectural impression. The entrance mat design is an integral part of that impression. emco from Lingen, Germany, offers a wide range of design options with its versatile products.

In particular in commercial properties such as hotels, museums, theatres or exclusive shopping centres, architecture and design are just as important as functionality. We provide colour-anodised frames and aluminium profiles as well as matching profiles in gold, medium bronze, black and stainless steel that offer the perfect solution for every modern entrance with the various insert colours to create a consistent overall colour concept,” explains Jörg Harbecke, CEO of emco Bau.

This enables developers and designers to either reference shades from the surroundings – wall colours, for example – to achieve a harmonious look, or use contrasts to create special highlights.

Elegant example

In the James-Simon-Galerie on Berlin’s Museum Island, the entrance area of the David Chipperfield-designed building features emco Marschall and emco Plaza entrance mats with medium-bronze anodised aluminium profiles. These not only optimally protect the high-quality interior flooring against soiling and wear; combined with the light-grey ribbed carpet inserts, the frames create a look that matches the overall architectural aesthetic superbly.

Stylish, clean, flexible

The individual products can be combined flexibly and coordinate perfectly to form an overall system. The 3-zone cleaning system is a combination of entrance mats and a clean-off, effectively ensuring retention of coarse, fine and wet dirt. As a result, the clean-off systems not only look beautiful, they also protect the rest of the floor from damage and help preserve the property value.
