Martinson-Nicholls new Waterhog Eco entrance mats are made from 100% recycled PET post-consumer recycled fiber reclaimed from drink bottles and 15% post-consumer recycled tires.

These environmentally friendly, indoor-outdoor mats combine the appearance of a fashionable carpet with the function of a doormat that traps dirt and water at your entrance.

Martinson-Nicholls and the Andersen Company are committed to the "Green Movement" and now offer a new line of recycled floor matting systems.

The use of PET Polyester fiber derived from used plastic drink bottles and rubber reclaimed from tires reduces landfill waste by over 400 tons annually.

It also conserves the natural resources and energy that would normally be required for their production. Every square foot of a Waterhog Eco matting eliminates four half-liter drink bottles from the waste stream. Each 3' X 5' floor mat uses approximately 60 bottles are recycled.

This new Eco line consists of the Waterhog Eco Premier, Grand Premier, Premier Tile, Elite, Grand Elite and Elite Roll Goods.

These high performance entry mat systems effectively stop damaging dirt and moisture at the door. A rubber reinforced "bi-level" cleaning surface is permanently molded into the product, eliminating crushing of the surface and insuring long term, cleaning effectiveness. The Eco carpet matting is available in a variety of sizes and colors to match any decor.
