San Diego Convention Center

Known for abundant, flexible space and five-star service, the San Diego Convention Center is a meeting planner’s choice for conferences of a couple hundred attendees or major conventions with over 100,000 people. The 1.1 million square foot Convention Center hosts numerous events simultaneously and receives millions of people through its doors annually.

In the fall 2011, the San Diego Convention Center management and Building Superintendent recognized that it was time to replace the facility’s unattractive and worn out entrance matting and enlisted the help of DFS Flooring, Inc. to find a solution. The mats were worn from the outdoor elements, harsh temperature changes and a volume of attendee and heavy equipment traffic. Consisting primarily of rubber, the matting was not effectively scraping off dirt or absorbing moisture and the facility’s maintenance staff had developed extensive routines to clean the tracked in debris. Additionally, the staff members attempted to remove dirt and debris that had been trapped in the shallow recessed well beneath, but found that the mats were extremely heavy and difficult to move.

San Diego Convention CenterDFS Flooring supplied the Convention Center management team with a variety of products to evaluate, including traditional walk-off matting, rubber matting and steel grates. With such a grandiose facility to maintain, it was of the utmost importance to management and facilities personnel that the new matting would help reduce interior maintenance and remain attractive while thousands of pedestrians march through the entryway.

The Convention Center staff chose Legend matting from Mats Inc. for its superior scraping and moisture absorption abilities that would help prevent dirt and debris from entering the building, its heavy-duty, lighter-weight material that would allow for easy, one-person cleaning and its open construction that would keep the matting looking clean until hidden dirt could later be removed.

“The Convention Center facilities staff love the difference Legend has made in maintenance and cleaning routines,” stated Sarah Allen, Account Executive at DFS Flooring, Inc.
