Industrial spaces, their use and functions have evolved over time. Industrial facilities are a key part of any economy because they manufacture the products that are so essential to our every day life. Their link to the well being of our economy makes it vital to take care of any and all industrial buildings. As important as they are, industrial areas can still be full of hazards and are quite expensive to maintain. The floors in these settings are often overlooked but they are actually a very important part of the area as a whole. Most of the time, these floors are made of concrete and asphalt, both of which are very hard materials that offer no comfort and zero traction.
Industrial flooring made out of rubber is used to turn cold and hard concrete floors into more accommodating surfaces. The Rubber Flooring Experts offer industrial floor mats that are made with anti-slip qualities in order to add an extra degree of grip to slippery floors. Whether it be an open-air outdoor walkway or an indoor tiled floor, our rubber mats and floors will add friction to surfaces even when wet. The rubber material in our industrial rubber mats is also enhanced with enough physical durability to handle heavy physical impact from high volumes of human foot traffic and active machinery at the same time. Best of all, our industrial flooring rubber mats are ultra-durable since most of our products are resistant to moisture and have excellent UV resistance. Continue Reading Below
Comfort should be a must have for any industrial workplace. Industrial settings are hard areas to work in, usually involving physical demands from the people working in them. From the perspective of an owner or manager, it is a standard best practice to ensure that industrial workers are as comfortable as possible. If workers are uncomfortable, there is a real risk of them harming either themselves or the productivity of the area. Our rubber industrial flooring offers superior anti-fatigue cushioning for assembly lines and areas where employees may be required to stand for long periods of time. Rubber has natural elasticity and flexibility that makes it an excellent option to have for flooring material. Industrial floor mats are ideal for keeping warehouse employees safe and productive because they provide the necessary cushioning to relieve stress on feet, legs, and backs.
Rubber industrial flooring is also meant to keep workers safe on their feet. Industrial rubber mats can help keep the workplace safe thanks to the natural traction enhancing abilities of rubber. But some industrial floor mats can come with an added bonus to them: surface textures. The point behind surface textures is to increase the traction inherent in rubber. These textures are protrusions that have been slightly raised across the surface of the mats. You may find them arranged in patterns of diamonds, circles, or blocks. Industrial flooring with surface textures will help keep the area much safer overall.
Industrial rubber mats protect floors from heavy machinery, severe impact, vibration, and dampen noise. This is a trait that makes our rubber flooring products desirable in numerous other applications such as in gyms. However, it really proves its usefulness in industrial settings. Industrial machines are heavy and often vibrate when in use. Without the proper industrial flooring in place under them, it is very likely that the existing surfaces of an area can suffer from structural damage. Even concrete can crack under a vibrating industrial machine. We offer industrial flooring in a variety of thicknesses in order to fit most applications and budgets. The reduction of vibration and impact absorption provided by our industrial floor mats not only protects your real estate investments, it also adds life to your equipment by softening the impact.
Rubber floors and mats also provide a layer of protection for your current floors against environmental factors. Do wet winter months muck-up your carpet or wood floor? If so, rubber industrial flooring can mark a path for incoming foot-traffic and keep moisture off of your floors. Rubber can even prevent mold and mildew from forming. This modular and seasonal approach will reduce interior maintenance costs and add life to your floors.
Given these benefits, there is no reason why you shouldn’t have rubber industrial flooring in place. Industrial rubber mats are cost-effective packages that combine physical durability with comfort and anti-slip protection.
