Why Use Anti-Slip Mats?
The installation of carefully selected anti slip mats can help to combat workplace slips. Slips can result in serious accidents and seriously affect employees or visitors to any building.
Workplace safety is a continual concern and slip prevention is just one of the areas of focus for health and safety professionals. Accident prevention must be the first course of action for combating slips. Appropriate anti slip rubber mats can increase grip and safety underfoot in both dry and wet areas.
Our mats prevent slips in wet environments, as well as dry ones. There are many options available in terms of surface texture, drainage holes, tile options, anti slip mat rolls and individual anti slip mats – ideal for workstations. Different wear resistances are also available to meet different industry standards, such as engineering to bar areas.
A wet workstation will require a non slip mat with drainage holes, rather than a textured solid surface mat. Swarf mats also feature within this range, with drainage holes that allow dry debris to fall through, preventing slip risks. Oily workstations will not only need a mat with holes, but also one that is oil resistant. Slips can result in minor and serious accidents, which can cause a loss of productivity.
Selecting the right mat for your environment can feel daunting, with the many aspects to taken into consideration. Our Mats in Mind app will help you to quickly narrow down the ideal solution from over 100 matting options.
Many of our anti slip mats also feature anti fatigue matting properties, which reduce fatigue from standing and offer prevention from further health risks, as well as improving all-round wellbeing.
