COBA Deluxe Rubber Bar Mats from COBA Africa have been selected and installed at the magnificent Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa.

The luxurious five star hotel, with views out to Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean, was opened in 1997 by no other than, Nelson Mandela. With 329 bedrooms, this highly appointed hotel, with conference facilities and a spa, is a much sought-after location for recreation and business clients. Its popularity means that its facilities are in high demand, and this includes its bar areas. They are located both inside the hotel and outside, around the pool.

COBA Deluxe is proving beneficial for a variety of reasons. Its 19mm thickness provides a comfortable ‘anti-fatigue’ standing surface for bartenders who are very often on their feet for prolonged periods of time. The matting also features open holes which allow spilt liquids to drain away from the surface of the mat, to reduce the risk of slipping. It also alleviates the problem of unpleasant ‘sticky’ floors. The other major benefit of COBA Deluxe is that it helps to reduce glass and crockery breakage – dropped glassware tends to bounce rather than break. Over a period of time, this can help save considerable costs to any business.

Installation of COBA Deluxe is straightforward too. The matting can be easily lifted for cleaning purposes. Each mat is 1m x 1.5m with connectors available to link mats for longer, or wider coverage. Bevelled edging is also available to give a neat, professional finish to any exposed edges, while also reducing the risk of trip hazards.

Speaking on behalf of Table Bay Hotel, Camissa Restaurant Manager, Heinrich La Meyer says:

The quality of the mats is good and they help our bar staff a lot. I really like the fact that a bottle can drop and actually not break, not like some other bar mats that can be too hard – believe me, I have tested it!
