In areas where heavy equipment and machinery are commonly used, safety should be your number one priority as a manager or business owner. Without safety in the workplace, you are risking a lot of danger. The flooring that is typically found in industrial areas usually comes in the form of concrete or asphalt. These are slippery surfaces that provide zero traction for your workers. Worse yet, they are susceptible to damage from the kind of heavy metallic machinery that is common in these areas. What better way to protect your workers from injury than with rubber safety flooring? Our rubber safety mats are slip resistant, provide excellent comfort and cushion, and are easy to install.
Rubber surfaces are ideal for risky flooring applications because they are made with a naturally slip-resistant material. The secret behind this is the rubber material itself. Rubber tends to increase the overall traction in an area when it is used as safety flooring. The material has the necessary grip to keep people safe and secure on their feet while they are moving over it. If rubber safety matting is put in place, the overall risk of slip and fall accidents occurring are greatly reduced. This improves the safety of the work place, reducing possible liability costs and headaches.
Our rubber safety matting is also available with ribs and textures that offer extra traction. Surface textures are protrusions that are located across the surfaces of the rubber safety mats. The layout of their presence tends to follow strategic patterns that are designed to provide more friction and pushback against incoming feet. They act in conjunction with the natural traction already provided by the rubber, making for an improved slip-resistant safety flooring solution for any industrial area! Continue Reading Below
Due to the fact that rubber is water resistant and has a high natural coefficient of friction, it is especially useful in wet areas and during winter months. Slip resistance is important in entryways, walkways, and areas where moisture is unavoidable. You do not want your employees slipping or falling around heavy-duty machinery so plan ahead with rubber safety flooring!
Hard concrete floors and long hours may combine to make working conditions uncomfortable for warehouse staff, kitchen cooks, and factory employees. Standing and walking around on hard floors for extended periods of time can slowly make a person uncomfortable. Painful pressure can slowly develop in the joints of the feet and the base of the lower back. This can cause distractions, which will lead to less productive workers and possibly even accidents. Rubber safety flooring is a much softer comfortable to stand on than simple concrete or asphalt. Rubber’s natural elasticity relieves tension so that people can stand for longer periods of time. Provide your workers with comfortable rubber safety matting that will provide durable cushioning and lessen physical fatigue.
When it comes to industrial areas, the safety of the actual floors themselves is very important. If a concrete floor has any chips or cracks on it, it makes the overall area unsafe. A person can easily trip over a large crack on the floor. The most infuriating part is that the cost to repair such damage can be prohibitively high. Rubber safety flooring can prevent that damage from happening. Rubber safety mats act as a shield against hard physical objects that may cause sever damage to the floor.
Rubber safety matting is also easy to install. Don’t spend money on excess material or professional installers. When you purchase these products in custom-cut rolls or interlocking tiles, they are guaranteed to fit the size of your floor area. Installation of a safety flooring roll is as easy as laying the flooring down and securing it with a two-sided carpet tape. Interlocking tiles are even easier to install due to their DIY nature. They come either with interlocking pins or interlocking border designs, both of which are meant to facilitate the easy connection of one tile onto the other.
