Walk-off Mats

The Access Board’s web site indicates that there is no specific requirement for edge fastening walk-off mats per carpet requirements.  They provide the following recommendation under 4.5.3:

Recommendation: ADAAG does not contain provisions for carpet that is not permanently fixed, such as matting placed in lobbies during inclement weather. Where used, it is recommended that they meet the pile height and trim requirements for fixed carpeting, have firm tapered edges for smooth transitions, be firm enough to minimize buckling or rolling and have an underside material or texture that grips the floor.
