Keeping the floors clean in retail or corporate buildings is a difficult but important task. Dirt and debris can impact the impression that your business leaves on customers. More crucially, moisture and grime can present safety hazards for customers, clients, and employees. A long, continuous, and seamless mat is the ideal approach to keeping the floors of a business clean and non-slip. You may have already seen these kinds of long rubber runner mats in front of the entrances or along the side walkways of commercial buildings. The Rubber Flooring Experts offer a wide selection of rubber runner mats that are perfect for persistently slippery entrances and walkways. Their durability, slip-resistance, and easy installation make for a cost-effective rubber mat that protects your business and customers from harm.
Our rubber runner mats help to protect existing flooring because they are made from durable rubber materials that include recycled, reclaimed, and natural rubbers. Many non-skid runners contain rubber that has been collected from recycled vehicle tires. As a result, these rubber mats inherit many of the attractive qualities found in tire rubber. Tires are designed to survive contact with rough and bumpy roads under various weather conditions for long periods of time. Similarly, these rubber floor runners are resistant to abrasion and long lasting. Whether they are supporting human feet, wheeled objects, or even heavy equipment on a daily basis, these rubber runner mats are strong enough to protect the underlying floor areas from damage.

Of course, physical objects are not the only source of floor damage to worry about. A constant source of potential damage actually comes from the environment, specifically the weather. Factors like rain, snow, and intense sunlight can cause some materials and products to degrade in quality over time. This is not so much the case with our recycled rubber runner mats. Recycled rubber floor runners retain the UV and ozone resistance that make rubber tires durable enough for long-term usage and continuous exposure to the elements. Rubber has no equal in terms of resisting moisture damage, allowing these rubber runner mats to endure wet weather in all seasons. Thanks to this moisture resistance, rubber also inhibits the development of microbial byproducts like mold and mildew, which would otherwise cause harm to customers and employees. These non-skid runners are also “Green” and eco-friendly, since they are made of 100% recycled rubber! Regardless of whether you install your rubber runner mats indoors or outdoors, their performance will stand up against the most intense physical conditions.
Rubber runner mats bring excellent non-slip safety to busy commercial areas and businesses that experience high volumes of foot traffic. Rubber has a degree of natural grip to it, making it much less slippery than other materials when exposed to moisture. This allows the rubber runner mats to maintain traction even when the surface is wet. In addition to its water-resistance, rubber has high coefficient of friction, which makes it the ideal material for non-skid runners. Friction is a key function of non-slip flooring and matting because it plays an integral role in keeping people stable and balanced when walking. When placed along heavily used pathways, the rubber runner mats enhance traction greatly to prevent consumers and employees alike from experiencing slips, trips, and falls in high-traffic areas.
For increased anti-slip capabilities, some of our rubber runner mats are equipped with surface textures composed of corrugated ribs or protrusions that provide extra surface traction, making them ideal for areas where falls are common. These kinds of surface textures are a great feature of non-skid runners that serves to enhance rubber’s already considerable traction qualities. Each raised rib or protrusion can provide even more friction than an ordinary rubber surface. As a result, these special textures allow rubber non-skid runners to provide an even better level of grip, allowing you to stand and walk securely without threat of falling. You can place these rubber floor runners along high-traffic entryways and walkways to keep accidents and injuries out of your daily business concerns.
Keep in mind that the surface textures of some rubber runner mats can also contribute to the cleanliness of the interiors of your business. This is because surface textures allow the non-skid runners to double as dirt scrapers for the front entrance of your business. If people scrape their dirty shoes along the textures of these rubber runner mats before entering, then dirt, debris, and moisture will be trapped on the mats rather than tracked indoors. These rubber floor runners can prevent mud, grime, gravel, sand, and other dirt from getting inside your place of business and ruining your clean office or showroom, thus preserving the tidy image that you present to your customers.
Our non-skid runners are available in a wide selection of sizes, but they can be purchased in custom lengths as well. You can order rolls of rubber flooring in half-foot increments up to 50 feet. When you order rubber runner mats to match specific dimensions, installation is as easy as trimming the edges and securing with double-sided tape. Transporting these non-skid runners is very simple. They can be rolled up and carried around from place to place as determined by your needs.
There is no reason why any business should go without the added safety of rubber floor runners. They are a great way to ensure that both customers and employees are slip-free and comfortable while walking inside. These eco-friendly rubber runner mats are also a good way to protect the existing floors of the entryway, protecting the overall value of your residential, commercial, and industrial spaces. These are simple and cost-effective solutions to improve your business! Trust the Rubber Flooring Experts with your business—choose affordable rubber runner mats for your home or office!
