Three Matting Options for a Cleaner Facility
- Debris Matting: Stop dirt in its tracks! Debris matting helps remove moisture, dirt, salt and fine sand from shoes before it enters the building and causes damage to your floors. Consider using this matting in vestibules, exterior entrances and parking levels.
- Scraper Matting: Scraper matting is a heavy-duty matting solution that can help trap water, snow and sand from footwear. Place this matting in exterior high-traffic locations including outside primary doors and vestibules for increased coverage.
- Wiper/Scraper Matting: Decrease the risk of slips and falls with wiper/scraper interior matting. These matting solutions help to minimize moisture and trap fine particles, leaving your floors safe, clean and looking their best. These mats are perfect for interior entrances, gyms and hallways to help protect against floor damage and extend their lifespan.
Three Matting Solutions for a Safer Workplace
- People-Protecting Matting: Workplace fatigue can lead to decreased productivity and cause more accidents. Keep your team comfortable and safe with anti-fatigue and slip-resistant matting to reduce slip and fall accidents and reduce the risk of injury. These matting solutions are ideal for workstations and high-traffic walkways.
- Product Protecting Matting: Matting helps protect products from scratches, dents and warping if dropped on floors. Protect your products during handling with floor and shelf liners and designate/define safe walking areas through your facility.
- Tool Protecting Matting: These matting solutions are designed to help prevent tool damage that could be damaged by dropping or rough handling. They can absorb high impacts, prevent dulling and can be perforated to allow for fluid drainage.
