Vibrations can be present in numerous different types of industrial settings. They often come from the various kinds of machines and equipment found in such areas. The steady hum and rhythm of vibrations can ensure that industrial equipment is functioning properly, but it can also at the same time be a real nuisance. At times, however, it can go beyond being a mere irritant. Vibrations, especially those that are emitted by heavy industrial machinery, can cause serious damage to both the floors of an area and the machines from which they come. It is very important to guard against these hazards, and the Rubber Flooring Experts are here to provide the solution to such problems!
Our anti-vibration mats are made from supple rubber material that shields industrial machinery from rigid floors and protects warehouse and factory floors from heavily vibrating machinery. Rubber’s natural resilient and flexible characteristics make it an ideal protective layer for flooring or even as a universal seal! Rubber floors, such as our vibration mat products, are elastic enough to absorb impact while resilient enough to withstand abuse. It is due to these reasons that rubber is widely used for flooring in other kinds of applications that go beyond industrial anti-vibration mats.
Heavy-duty machines that vibrate while in use are abrasive by their very nature. They are often made from hard materials like metal and can weigh up to several tons. It does not help that they are often placed on equally hard and unforgiving surfaces. Asphalt and concrete are the most common types of industrial floor surfaces and do not absorb the shock and impact of modern machines. Continue Reading Below
Without any padded mats in place under the machinery, this may lead to costly damages and repairs. Metal and asphalt are among the hardest materials out there and can damage each other when they come into direct contact. Rubber anti-vibration mats are a very affordable way to protect pricey equipment. A rubber vibration mat can absorb the pulsation of heavy-duty machines while they dampen the blows and soften the strain placed on their moving parts. As the rubber of the anti-vibration mats minimizes the repetitive impacts of vibrations, the machines will benefit from being in contact with a softer and more elastic material that won’t cause harm to their structure. At the end of the day, the rubber anti-vibration mats will save you money while ensuring a stable level of productivity.
It is not only the industrial equipment that benefits from the presence of a rubber vibration mat. Rubber padded mats can help protect floors from the abuse of heavy industrial tools and equipment that can cause damage or wear down flooring over time. As mentioned earlier, the kinds of machines and the type of flooring commonly found in industrial settings are both made from very hard materials. Heavy vibrating metal machinery can grind away at the structural stability of concrete and asphalt floors over time. The cost to repair chips and cracks in concrete and asphalt can be very high. Some people find it to be prohibitively expensive. Anti-vibration mats can prevent this by acting as a shield for the floor. A rubber vibration mat has the ability to absorb impact in order to protect any floor type from damage. Whether it is carpet, wood, linoleum, or concrete, you can save the costs of repair and replacement by protecting your investments with affordable rubber anti-vibration mats.
Besides protecting floors and equipment, rubber anti-vibration mats are also extremely durable. Due to the physically demanding nature of industrial applications, these rubber mats simply have to be! Many of our padded mats are tough and abrasion resistant because that are made from all weather recycled car tire crumb. This type of rubber benefits from the strength of the vehicle tires used as its raw materials. Anti-vibration mats made from recycled rubber are considered eco-friendly because their production helps to reduce non-biodegradable waste in the environment. Best of all for consumers on a budget, they are available at more affordable rates than their non-recycled synthetic rubber counterparts.
Additionally, anti-vibration mats can make an industrial workplace more pleasant by dampening the noise levels that come from vibrations. The steady hum of the vibrations emitted by heavy machinery can grate at the ears. This can negatively affect the productivity of workers in the area as they may be more focused on how irritating the sound is instead of their given tasks. The rubber material used in padded mats can minimize the overall noise given off by vibrating equipment.
