industrial use and harsh weather conditions. These mats are made from 50% cotton and 50% nylon, which make them highly absorbent and suitable for use in workshops, garages and production areas where oil and grease are present. The high absorbency of these mats ensures floors are kept clean and dry, and reduces the risk of accidents in the workplace.


FIGHT FATIGUE Anti-fatigue mats address common problems that arise from long periods of standing, such as joint pain, backache and tiredness. These mats have been designed to make employees more comfortable and increase concentration and efficiency, while enhancing safety in the workplace.


Anti-fatigue mats have small cushioned air domes which encourage foot and body movement. This promotes posture changes and stimulates blood circulation for those people standing on them, which reduces the risk of joint pain and backache – lessening these symptoms of fatigue will ease discomfort and hopefully improve motivation and efficiency. The thick rubber in these mats also protects those standing on them from cold floors. The ideal

locations for anti-fatigue mats are in places where people are likely to be standing or waiting for long periods of time; you will usually find them at customer service counters, reception desks, supermarket counters and occasionally work stations.


In demanding industrial environments, Safe Step anti-fatigue mats are an excellent solution; made from a chemical resistant material with a close-cell sponge base, they provide support to the legs and back, whilst also providing excellent traction and an easy-to-clean surface.


WATCH YOUR STEP These form part of the non-textile range and are primarily designed to prevent accidents and injuries occurring in wet and slippery environments, such as leisure centre changing rooms and pub kitchens/bars where spillages are likely to occur.


The construction of these mats allows liquid to quickly drain away through the specially designed drainage holes, whilst its suction cup backing ensures the rubber mats remain in place. They remove any potential slip hazard, whilst also providing a non-slip surface for guests to walk on.


Some non-slip rubber mats also have a built-in anti-bacterial agent that prevents the growth of bacteria, mould or mildew, thus maximising hygienic conditions. Their cross- ventilating channel backing helps reduce moisture build-up underneath too, while minimising the risk of unpleasant odours.


These are also perfect in food and bar facilities, as the soft rubber mat surface acts as a cushion and helps to reduce breakages of crockery and glassware. The ramped edge of the mat enables trolleys and cages to be transported easily over their surface, which is ideal in high traffic working areas.


Once you have chosen the type of mat best suited to your business, it’s important to ensure they are cleaned and laundered on a regular basis. By spending the time assessing the functionality and selecting the mat accordingly, this will make a huge difference to creating and maintaining a clean work environment for customers and staff alike.
