A slick and moist floor is a significant hazard. Some surfaces like tile and laminate are prone to becoming extremely slippery when moist. Accidents that occur as a result of a misplaced foot can be embarrassing, painful, and very costly. It is always a good idea to have anti-slip floor mats set in place, especially in an area prone to wet conditions. Rubber-Cal’s line of safety flooring mats is an ideal and affordable solution to safeguarding your area from the dangers of moisture while making sure that you and your guests are secure on your feet. A huge part of this safety lies in the rubber material used to make our anti-skid flooring. It enhances traction and inhibits moisture at the same time. Every type of floor, whether it is residential, commercial, or industrial, can benefit from the presence of rubber traction mats.
The primary feature about anti-slip floor mats is that they increase the safety of wet areas. Business owners take an interest in rubber non-slip mats because of this reason. Some commercial venues like restaurant kitchens are hazardous areas that see lots of loose liquids getting onto their existing floors. Without any safety flooring in place, the risk of workers slipping and injuring themselves is far greater. In addition to kitchen areas, these mats are ideal to place at entryways when there are wet weather conditions. With rubber anti-slip floor mats placed in such areas, people will experience more security while on their feet. This safety is provided in large part thanks to the rubber material that is used in our traction mats.
One could not ask for a better material to use for anti-slip floor mats. The most important feature about rubber, in regards to safety, is that it comes with a naturally high level of traction. Rubber provides for more friction and resistance against moving objects. When feet have more friction put against them, they are more likely to stay firm and secure. This is true of the various different types of rubber that we use in our anti-slip floor mats, such as recycled rubber and synthetic rubber. Recycled rubber is a popular material that is very durable yet affordable to the consumer. It is also an eco-friendly material that can help consumers reduce their overall environmental impact.
Rubber’s natural traction enhancing abilities may also be further improved by surface texture. Some of our anti-skid flooring mats come with surface textures that are specifically designed to enhance traction for the people standing on top of them. A commonly used surface texture is a design that features slightly raised protrusions across the top of the mat. Surface textures will serve to enhance the rubber’s already considerable traction qualities, giving your feet an enhanced level of grip.
Our anti-slip floor mats are likely to come across moisture. However, one does not need to worry about water damage to these non-slip mats because they are made of rubber. It is naturally resistant to moisture. Other types of flooring, such as wood, can absorb water and develop organic byproducts like mold. The cost of repairing such damage can be costly. Anti-slip floor mats made of rubber can spare you that unnecessary expense because they do not absorb any water and inhibits the development of organisms like mold. Any water of the surface of rubber safety flooring can be wiped off without harming the material’s natural traction capabilities. To further enhance their maintenance against water, some of our anti-slip floor mats come with drainage holes that help channel excess water away from the surface of the mat. This feature can aid in maintaining safety and cleanliness at the same time.
Given all of these excellent features, it is essential to have rubber traction mats in your area, especially if it is prone to wet weather conditions. It is very important for commercial businesses to have non-slip mats in place because they can keep both workers and customers safe from disastrous slip and fall accidents. Since these anti-skid flooring mats are made of rubber, they are a cost-effective safety solution that is easy to clean and maintain in the face of excess moisture. Anti-slip floor mats are a great investment for the safety of you, your guests, and your workers.
