When wet weather starts to creep-in, keeping commercial entrances and walkways dry is next to impossible. Slippery surfaces are a hazard that should never be tolerated. At the very least, someone experience a little bit of pain and a lot of humiliation after slipping and falling. But such wet floor related accidents have the potential to be extremely harmful. You run the risk of someone suffering from a life threatening injury. In such instances, it is vital to maintain a safe walkway that can offer good traction even in the face of moisture. The Rubber Flooring Experts offer ribbed rubber matting for high-risk conditions such as these. Corrugated rubber flooring adds traction to slippery doorways, endures abrasive environments, is available in different styles, and is sold in custom lengths!
Installing a ribbed mat is an easy way to add traction to commercial doorways, slippery outdoor walkways, and other commonly trafficked areas. Rubber is a naturally slip-resistant material with a high natural coefficient of friction, even while wet. This feature has made rubber a very popular and in-demand material for use in flooring products. Although rubber is inherently a traction enhancing material, it can at times come with an added bonus in flooring. That bonus is the corrugated rubber surface textures.

A ribbed mat provides extra traction in slippery spots and can prevent serious falls and injuries in high-traffic areas. The layout of the corrugated rubber design helps to improve the traction given to the feet on top of the matting. Each rib acts as a kind of “force multiplier” for the overall level of friction that helps keep people balanced on their feet.
Ribbed rubber matting can also be much more comfortable to walk or stand on than regular concrete surfaces. Rubber is a naturally elastic material that tends to provide comfort for the feet standing on top of it. Your feet and lower back are much more likely to be free of tension while standing on a rubber surface.
Corrugated rubber flooring is extremely abrasion resistant and durable. You want a good level of physical protection for your entrance walkways because any chips or cracks on their surfaces can be very hazardous. A strong rubber mat can prevent these from occurring. Our ribbed rubber matting contains 100% post-consumer recycled rubber from vehicle tires. Tires are manufactured to survive the toughest of physical conditions. They are made to endure even the elements, including common factors such as ozone, UV ray exposure, and constant moisture. Ribbed rubber matting made from these materials is tough enough for any indoor or outdoor application and will last longer than other common floor surfaces.
For outdoor applications, moisture is perhaps the biggest concern of all. For a product like a ribbed mat, you want to make sure that excess levels of moisture do not damage or degrade the product in any way. Water tends to corrode other materials. If it is present in excess levels for extended periods of time, then mold and moisture are known to develop. This is not the case with rubber. Ribbed rubber matting can prevent mold and mildew from forming on its body. This is a common feature of rubber that helps to keep things safe, clean, and healthy for everyone in the area.
Our corrugated rubber products come in very easy to handle forms. They are available as rolls. Typically they are available in widths of either 3 or 4 feet and can be ordered in lengths of up to 50 continuous feet. This provides for a wide range of floor protection for almost any setting. The rolled form of our ribbed rubber matting products is ideal for mobile applications where you may need to transport the ribbed mat from one location to another. In order to adhere the mats down on a surface, it is as easy as using double-sided tape. The use of tape will help make sure that the mats stay in place. No matter your application, you can buy our corrugated rubber matting in pre-cut or custom-cut lengths.
