It should come as no surprise that industrial areas can be hazardous places to work in. While there are many potential hazards present in industrial workplaces, perhaps none are as insidious as slip-and-fall accidents. According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), 294 out of 796 deaths in the field of construction were the result of these fall-related accidents in 2013 alone! That figure does not even take into account non-fatal injuries. Fortunately, slip-related accidents can be easily prevented through the smart use of rubber anti-slip flooring mats.
Industrial buildings can have dangerous floor areas for a variety of reasons. It can be due to the presence of moisture from rain or other spilled liquids, or the danger can arise from an unexpected loss of footing. The end result is always the same: a fall that is both painful and embarrassing. No one should learn the hard way in which one fall can lead to astronomical medical bills or a costly loss of productivity in the workplace. Add a layer of grip and safety to your floors with rubber anti-slip flooring from the Rubber Flooring Experts. Anti-slip rubber matting adds traction, resilience, cleanliness, and affordability to your business workplace. Temporary rubber mats are a cost effective piece of insurance to protect your clients, customers, and employees when floors become unsafe!
The rubber that is used to make our anti-slip rubber matting is a water-resistant material that has a high natural coefficient of friction. Friction is the amount of resistance that pushes against in incoming object, such as feet. The presence of friction leads to traction. Traction is the key to ensuring the stability and balance of those standing on top of the rubber anti-slip flooring mats. As a result, rubber floors add a superior level of slip resistance to surfaces that may otherwise be slippery and dangerous. Continue Reading Below
Although the rubber material by itself can improve the overall safety of an area, anti-slip rubber matting can bring an extra safety feature to the forefront. Some of our anti-slip floor mat products are equipped with uniquely designed surface textures. The purpose behind the added textures on anti-slip flooring is to increase traction that the rubber material provides. These textures often come in the form of slightly raised designs on top of the mat. Each raised protrusion has the ability to enhance the grip already provided by the rubber material of the mat. Textured anti-slip rubber matting makes for an even safer floor that prevents slips and falls and can protect foot-traffic from injury can only be found in rubber!
Moisture can be a real problem in any area, whether it is residential, commercial, or industrial. Most of the time when somebody loses his or her footing, it is the result of walking over a wet surface. This kind of hazard is something to watch out for in industrial settings because the existing surfaces of these areas are very hard and unforgiving to fall on top of. Anti-slip flooring made of rubber is inherently moisture resistant. It can retain its traction enhancing traits even when wet. However, we offer some anti-slip rubber matting that comes with drainage holes on their surfaces. Drainage holes offer additional security by keeping the mat’s surface dry and safe to walk on.
Since our rubber mats are unaffected by moisture, wet weather will not affect floor surfaces covered by them. Some of our anti-slip flooring mats are considered all-season flooring products because they have excellent UV resistant qualities due to a high content of the raw material EPDM. This means that you can put them in the outdoors for extended periods of time without having to worry about them suffering from immediate damage in the forms of cracking or discoloration. Anti-slip rubber matting is also easy to clean and maintain because rubber is water resistant.
Durability is another characteristic that makes an anti-slip floor mat a smart buy. Rubber floors made from eco-conscious recycled rubber tire crumb are naturally resistant to abrasion and resilient when faced with harsh weather, natural elements, heavy machinery, and high volumes of foot traffic. Rubber floor covering is ideal for tough environments and provides safety and a peace of mind.
