Rubber mats present the ideal solution to a range of problems plaguing the average home or business-owner. Whether you are having problems with dirty and wet doorways or slippery kitchen floors, rubber mats can be used to deal with the issue. Tough rubber mats for floors are so effective because they give extra traction while offering slip resistance and anti-fatigue comfort in a portable and easy to clean product. Rubber mats can also be used in a wide variety of different settings, whether it is residential, commercial, or industrial in nature. In any situation our rubber mats can be used to give you safe floors as standard!
Our roll rubber matting is made with durable material which has a high level of flexibility and elasticity. This can range from natural rubber, which is made from plant sap, to recycled rubber which is created from old rubber tires. Rubber is a great material to use for flooring because it combines qualities to create the perfect mixture of durability and comfort that is crucial for any good flooring surface. This is especially true for recycled rubber mats. Since the recycled rubber material is made from vehicle tires, the resulting rubber mats for floors will feature the well-known physical resilience of the tires used to make them. Think of it as a parent’s traits being passed on to their child. Tires have to be able to take a beating on the roads, and this physical durability is key in creating new rubber mats. This strength allows rubber mats to protect the existing floors that they are placed on top of against any potential harm. Damage to wood or tile floors can be very expensive to repair, so having roll rubber matting in place over them will help save you a lot of money in the long run.

Rubber mats for floors can be soft and cushioning surfaces with anti-fatigue qualities, since rubber is a flexible material that adds padding to otherwise solid surfaces. Rubber’s elastic nature can accommodate the shape and weight of the human foot, often acting to relieve any built-up pressure in a person’s joints and ankles. This anti-fatigue comfort feature can be increased, depending of the specific thickness that your rubber mats come in. Thick roll rubber matting will bring much-needed support to areas in which people stand for long periods of time, including assembly lines, commercial kitchens, and retail stores. Rubber mats for floors such as these can help workers stay on their feet without pain for longer, and even increase productivity by reducing the strain on their bodies.
Moisture is a significant hazard to watch out for in many areas of your home and business. It can make surfaces slippery and dangerous to walk on. At the same time, if there is excess moisture left unchecked over extended periods of time, it can cause harmful organisms like mold and mildew to form. Rubber mats help to eliminate these moisture related problems. Roll rubber matting or smaller rubber mats will naturally repel water. This is due to the natural moisture resistance and non-porous nature of most types of the material. Rubber mats for floors also boast great traction and surface grip ability – due to the natural friction carried by rubber – which make them the ideal products to be used in slippery areas such as home or commercial doorways, kitchens, and bathrooms. Add slip-resistance and safety to any of these areas with one of our drainage or non-slip rubber mats, made from slip-resistant rubber.
Mats and roll rubber matting products are great inside the home and business, but can also be used in the outdoors – especially if the rubber mats are made from recycled rubber. As we mentioned above, tire rubber is tough, and designed to resist the harmful effects of intense UV rays, ozone, and rainwater. Rubber mats for floors which are made from this recycled material will survive in the outdoors for longer periods of time without suffering from any degradation in quality. This is why rubber mats and tiles have become popular for use in outdoor playground flooring and patio deck surfacing.
Our rubber mats for floors can come in different forms. First there is roll rubber matting, which is flooring that comes in the form of a roll. These are easy to adhere onto surfaces through the use of double-sided adhesive tape, and can come in a wide variety of lengths. Then there are the standalone mats that come in pre-determined sizes. They can be either lightweight or heavyweight and are very easy to move around as needed, making them extremely versatile. Finally, there are interlocking rubber mats. As their name suggest, these mats are designed to lock into each other through the use of either interlocking pins or border designs. These are meant to facilitate a quick and easy DIY installation process, and can be used to cover areas of varying sizes by adding additional mats.
Another key characteristic of our mats and roll rubber matting is how easy they are to maintain. Any dirt and dust that may accumulate on the surface of the rubber mats can be cleaned off with ease. Clean these water-resistant mats with a damp towel or mop. If soap is needed, only use common household soaps. High strength caustic detergents are not recommended.
A durable rubber mat will last longer, protect your floors, and save you money where it counts. Our mats are designed to make your life easier and more comfortable, no matter where you use them.
