Custom Waterhog Logo Mats: Now More Options Than Ever

Waterhog Mats have become a staple in the flooring industry as durable, commercial-grade floor mats that help prevent dirt, water and debris from being tracked inside.   The non-logo versions of these mats are available with customized lengths and the logo mats were limited to only one style until recently.  Now, several different styles of custom Waterhog logo mats are available to fit any application and environment.

Oversized, Extra-Large Waterhog Mats

One of the biggest drawbacks with most floor matting, and Waterhog Mats in particular, is the limitation on available sizes.  Most mats are available no larger than 6 feet wide (as most double doors are this width).  Thus, even though Waterhog floor mats are non-directional (and therefore we can consider either side the width and either side the length), mats larger than 6’ on both the width and length were, until recently not feasible.  The goods would be cut down from a 6’ wide roll, backed, beveled and finished and there was nothing that could be done.  Now we have two different options for oversized Waterhog matting where both the width and length are greater than 6 feet, the Waterhog Berber Roll Mats and a variety of different Waterhog Floor Mat Tiles.

Waterhog Classic Mats vs Waterhog Fashion Mats
