Commercial kitchens can be full of safety concerns. These are high activity areas that see increased levels of foot traffic on surfaces that have an almost constant presence of liquids on them. Such liquids are often present in the form of spills and puddles. The presence of these liquids can cause accidents and injuries. You can take actions to prevent such disasters from occurring through the use of rubber kitchen mats from the Rubber Flooring Experts! Our rubber matting products are slip resistant, have the ability to repel oils and greases, and provide for increased anti-fatigue comfort.
Our rubber floor mats are perfect for keeping people safe and secure on their feet. This is due to the fact that they are made with naturally slip-resistant rubber components. Rubber has an excellent level of innate grip. It provides moving feet with the levels of friction needed to maintain a stable balance. Even if the kitchen rubber mats are wet, the rubber material will not lose its traction. That is part of the beauty of having a kitchen cushion mat made of rubber, the ability to ensure the safety of everyone in the area even the wettest and messiest of conditions.
Some of our kitchen rubber mats are equipped with specially designed surface textures for extra anti-slip safety. Think of this as going the extra mile. Rubber already comes with a significant level of traction, but some mats are designed to enhance that traction even further. The surface textures come in the form of slightly raised protrusions that are arranged in a specific pattern. These protrusions add to the resistance encountered by peoples’ feet while on the rubber kitchen mats.
If there is an excessive amount of liquids in the area, then consider our kitchen rubber mats that come with drainage holes. Continue Reading Below
These holes are located throughout the body of the mat. Although the specific size of the holes can vary depending on the mat, they are all meant to facilitate the drainage of built-up unwanted liquids away from the surface of the mat.
We also offer rubber matting that is grease and oil resistant for commercial floor surfaces that are constantly coming into contact with these hazards. Oils and greases are simply a fact of life in the world of a busy restaurant kitchen. Anyone in the food service industry can tell you as much. Unfortunately, their presence on a floor can be more hazardous than water’s. That is why some of our kitchen cushion mat products are made with a combination of natural rubber and grease-resistant nitrile rubber compounds, allowing them to keep grease off of floor surfaces and prevent slips and falls in busy foodservice environments. Nitrile rubber is a synthetic elastomer that was initially developed for oil-related applications. It can therefore come into contact with many more different types of oil and grease compounds than its natural rubber counterpart. Oil and grease products can cause damage to a material’s structure if left unchecked for an extended period of time, but nitrile rubber can prevent such damage.
We also recommend rubber kitchen mats that are soft and offer anti-fatigue qualities. Chefs and other restaurant staff are required to stand in one set place for long periods of time. If they are standing on an uncovered surface such as ceramic, concrete, or tile, they will inevitably become more uncomfortable as the shift goes on. These are hard surfaces that do not relieve any pressure that can build up in the feet and lower back. If an employee is suffering from physical fatigue, their productivity is sure to go down. What better way to protect them from stress and physical fatigue than with a rubber kitchen cushion mat? Rubber is a naturally elastic and shock-absorbent material that can help to relieve stress on joints over time. When compared to harder surfaces like concrete, rubber is a clear winner in terms of providing a more comfortable surface to stand on. A comfortable employee is a happy employee, and a happy employee is a productive employee. A rubber kitchen cushion mat offers great anti-fatigue comfort at an affordable price.
We offer a variety of mats and rubber runners so that your installation can be contiguous or modular depending upon the specific size required for your needs. Place kitchen rubber mats in your restaurant kitchen to protect your guests and employees. Keep those restaurants running smoothly by investing in rubber kitchen mats.
