EcoPath™, a recyclable entryway matting solution made from environmentally friendly renewable and recyclable products, urges facility managers to consider entryway matting as a vital component of any seasonal operations plan. To these efforts EcoPath has put in place a team of regional specialists to counsel building professionals on how EcoPath products can help minimize tracked dirt, lower cleaning costs, reduce slip and fall hazards, and contribute to LEED certification.

EcoPath's matting products include EcoMax, EcoRib, and EcoClassic (shown here).

This team of dedicated regional reps offers a breadth of service experience in such industries as flooring, carpet, tile and insurance. “Our regional professionals are armed with the expertise and available to help with every step, from initial inquiries to overseeing the installation process and managing customers’ continued needs,” said Jack Lindsay, founder of EcoPath, a product of Engineered Conversion Systems (ECS).

Whether forecasting snow, heavy rain, winds, or sunny skies, EcoPath can complement a facility’s seasonal management strategy to:

  • Protect floors with moisture hoarding, dirt  trapping construction
  • Control tracking and minimize dirt
  • Minimize slip hazards
  • Handle heavy traffic without showing wear
  • Reduce cleaning costs
  • Reduce environmental strain by utilizing recycled materials in its construction
  • Contribute toward LEED building certification
