I’ve heard many industry professionals channel their frustration on this very dilemma; how to prevent dirt entering a facility. Many seeking a better way, a way more in keeping with their technological advancements.
In truth, using traditional methods, a floor is only clean when it is being cleaned. So, unless you have a cleaning army that cleans all your floors 24/7, how can you really keep on top of it?
There must be a better way than the perpetual cycle of cleaning – day in day out, 24/7 in the modern world of manufacturing. As the proverb says, prevention is better than the cure (or something along those lines).
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It’s more prudent to head off a disaster beforehand than to deal with it after it occurs” ‘De Legibus’ (c. 1240).
Prevention seems an obvious solution!
Given that 80% of all contamination (dirt, dust and moisture) is carried in on tyre wheels and shoes, strategically placing a solution at entrance points would be a good way to start. So, am I suggesting a doormat? Yes, I am.

Case Study – UK Food Manufacturer
Following a very similar installation process, a major UK Food Manufacturer saw the following impressive results. Based on the 5-week trial, we can assume that ProfilGate would drive a potential 254.8 kg of contamination/dirt prevention in 12 months.
