Textured rubber flooring products can add a whole new dimension to your surfaces. Rubber is famed for its high coefficient of friction, which provides superior traction to many other material types. That level of natural traction is a great feature, but it can be made even better by texturing. Textured mats and textured tile products will feature surface protrusions that offer a wide range of benefits, from non-slip qualities to visual enhancements. Textured mats made from rubber are available in a wide range of options, and the texturing itself comes in a huge range of different designs to meet all needs.
With rubber textured mats, you can expect to find raised surface texturing in a range of arrangements and patterns. Some products might feature small circular protrusions, while others could be straight ridges, running along the full length of the textured rubber flooring. Other variations might include a dotted texturing, or a diamond-plate patterning. Some textured mats feature extremely subtle protrusions, while others might have deeper ridges and channels. Each of these different textured mats and flooring options have slightly different advantages.
Textured Rubber Mats
Perhaps the most important quality of a textured tile or matting product is the ani-slip traction it can provide. No matter what form of design it is in, a textured rubber flooring product will provide supreme underfoot grip. The raised texturing provides extra edges for shoe soles to grip against. This extra traction is vital in helping to prevent accidents. In particular, such texturing protects people from suffering embarrassing, painful and dangerous slip and fall accidents wherever the textured mats are placed. Anti-slip protection is especially useful on staircases, which can be particularly hazardous. Rubber textured mats are also made by Rubber-Cal in the form of stair treads. Having grip-enhancing protrusions on your stairs is a very effective way of using the outstanding attributes of textured rubber to improve safety.
Some texturing has specialist uses that extend beyond providing grip. For instance, some anti-fatigue matting products are covered with surface bumps. The bumps on these textured mats act as small air pockets, giving those standing on top of it a layer of padded comfort, relieving the stress on their joints and muscles. Other textured rubber surfacing can provide shoe-scraping capabilities by providing additional edges to help remove substances like dirt and moisture from the soles of shoes. Having a textured floor can have a wide range of benefits!
Textured rubber products come in a wide variety of forms to cater for all of your flooring needs. You can get modular textured tile products, which are interlocking and fit together to create as large or small a flooring area as you need. Our textured tile options are particularly versatile, because you can add or remove tiles at any point. As well as allowing you to change the size of your textured area easily, tiles are easy to store and transport when needed. You can also swap them out if one tile or area of tiles suffers more wear or damage than others. Aside from a textured tile, you can also get textured rubber in the form of mats and rolls. A flooring roll will come as one continuous piece, usually cut to lengths up to 50ft., while textured mats are created to specific sizes to cover defined areas.
People usually focus on the functionality of rubber textured mats, but one often underestimated feature of a textured flooring type is its aesthetics. The texturing can provide an attractive look to any given flooring surface. Textured mats and other surface products often bear protrusions arranged in symmetrical patterns. From diamond-plate to straight-line and circular texturing, these flooring options provide a clean and modern aesthetic which adds an attractive and interesting element to all surfaces.
Textured rubber flooring can be deployed in a huge variety of locations to great effect. Different textured mats work best in different locations. For instance, a mat with more pronounced protrusions could be used at an entranceway to provide shoe-scraping capabilities. Other flooring with more subtle texturing could be used in all manner of settings, from bathrooms to basements, garages and countless others. The grip provided by the texturing mean that they are ideal for locations where traction is needed, such as gym flooring, or areas which are liable to become slick or slippery such as stairs, kitchens, walkways or even boat decks. Textured mats, rolls and tiles are truly versatile and incredibly useful. Utilize textured rubber flooring to meet all of your surface needs, whether you are looking for highly-functional anti-slip qualities or an eye-catching floor design.
