The secret behind the effectiveness of these mats lies within the rubber material itself. Rubber is unaffected by and does not absorb moisture. This unique feature makes it an inherently water-resistant flooring option that leads into its strengths as a slip-resistant flooring solution. Our rubber drainage mats are designed for the sole purpose of keeping water and other moisture away from well-travelled areas. Equipped with holes that allow moisture to escape the surface, rubber mats make the continued use of any given area possible, regardless of spills or wet weather. Better yet, rubber does not allow for the growth of microbial byproducts like mold and mildew. These can develop when excess moisture is left unchecked, but rubber is not a suitable material for their development. Our drainage rubber mats can reduce accidents and the effects of bad weather conditions while also presenting a more hospitable floor for customers and employees to walk safely on.

At the same time, you can place these mats in a commercial kitchen area where several cooks are splashing various kinds of liquids onto the floor. Although they may be different situations on the surface, they are similar in the fact that both situations can increase the chances of a harmful accident occurring. All it takes it one wrong step for somebody to fall over and hit their head. By using our drainage rubber mats you will increase traction in these potentially hazardous areas, protect visitors from dangerous falls, and ensure that your business runs smoothly.
Not all spilled liquids are water. There may some occasions when the liquid in question is something heavier, like an oil or grease. We offer some drainage mats that are made out of synthetic rubbers like nitrile. Nitrile is an elastomer that is often used in applications that involve oils and greases of various kinds. While the usual natural and recycled rubbers may not have the best resistance to prolonged exposure to oil, nitrile rubber can survive contact with such materials with ease.
The holes on our drainage mats can also filter through solid debris. If the particle is small enough, it can fit through the hole. This feature is especially useful in the kitchen areas of the food service industry. It is not uncommon to see small food particles fallen and forgotten on the floor next to the cook. These can easily cause someone to slip and fall over. Some further examples of solid particles that can be drained through our drainage rubber mats are rocks, sand, gravel, ice cubes, and more.
Rubber is a material that is ideal for improving the overall traction enjoyed by feet in an area. Rubber has a high co-efficient of friction, providing enough of it to keep feet safe and secure. One of the great traits of rubber is that even if it is wet it will not lose its anti-slip benefits. Few other materials can boast that unique quality, and not all of them are as affordable as rubber.
Additionally, thicker rubber mats possess anti-fatigue comfort that is welcomed in commercial kitchens. Chefs, dishwashers, and other foodservice employees spend hours on their feet without reprieve. Oftentimes they are standing on hard concrete or tile surfaces. These surfaces do not allow for any stress relief. Since rubber material is naturally elastic, rubber flooring protects employees from stress injuries as well as fatigue. It can help relieve any pressure that slowly builds up in the back, feet, and ankles. Create a safe, slip-free space in your business with rubber drainage mats from the Rubber Flooring Experts.
