MANUAL HANDLING & ERGONOMICS


PRODUCT SPECIAL: NOTRAX®


Standing on hard surfaces for long periods has been proven to lead to discomfort and fatigue. Long-term standing causes muscles to constrict, reducing blood flow. This makes muscles and joints hurt, and it causes blood to stagnate. So it is no surprise that documented complaints of lower back pain are highest in workers who stand for four hours or more per day. Research, dating back to 1972, documents the consequences of fatigue in workers and how it can be improved by the use of an anti-fatigue mat. A 2011 study, by Professor Redha Taiar of the University of Reims (France), compared the effects of fatigue on workers standing on hard floor to working standing on an anti-fatigue mat.

The results illustrated that an anti-fatigue mat enables correct balance and a uniform distribution of weight between the right and left leg, as well as substantially reduced pain.


Ergonomically engineered to prevent fatigue, the new SkyStep™ from Notrax utilizes the power of air and suction to prevent the mat from shifting by trapping air in its chambers. These air pockets, combined with the resiliency of the rubber, create an ultimate cushioning effect while keeping the mat lightweight.


Available in two sizes (60x90cm and 90x120cm), the 13mm thick standalone rubber mats have a gritted bubble surface pattern to provide maximum fatigue relief while maintaining


vital anti-slip properties. SkyStep™ is moulded from a high quality industrial rubber compound with integrated bevelled edges on all four sides to prevent tripping on the mat.


NATURAL RUBBER,


NITRILE OR ESD SkyStep™ is available in a selection of compounds for specialized industrial applications such as general purpose, oil-proof or ESD static dissipative. The natural rubber compound is recommended for general purpose applications in dry industrial areas. A 100% nitrile rubber version, which is resistant to oils, greases and other industrial fluids, is also available. The SkyStep™ ESD is formulated to drain static electricity from workers and fulfills
