Industrial safety mats are installed for many different reasons. Some industrial mats are installed for general applications or uses and others are installed for specialized purposes. Industrial mats are specially designed floor mats for installation in commercial and industrial buildings and sites. These mats are installed in office buildings, production sites, factories, mines, gyms, and other commercial and industrial settings. Based on their specific applications or installation sites, there are many different types of industrial floor mats including entryway industrial mats, log mats, indoor/interior mats, heated mats, anti-fatigue floor mats, medical mats, heated mats, salon mats etc. There are four main benefits of installing industrial floor mats. One of the main reasons of installing any floor mat is to ensure floor safety. Another major reason for installing matting products is to protect the floors from damage and to ensure floor cleanliness. Many industrial matting solutions are usually designed to provide ergonomic comfort by relieving stress and fatigue in the workplace. And last but not least, like all other floor mats, industrial mats enhance the beauty and professional appeal of any commercial setting. We will now look at each of these reasons for installing industrial mats.
According to one industry report, 50% of all reported accidents are caused by slips and trips on wet and slippery floors. That is why it is highly recommended that you install slip resistant industrial mats in your place of business to avoid these accidents. As mentioned above, one of the main uses or applications of all types of floor mats is to provide floor safety to users. Almost all industrial mats are designed to provide traction on wet and slippery floors. These mats feature grip surfaces on their backsides and textured surfaces on their topsides to ensure a firm grip on the floor and a firmer grip under your shoes. These mats prevent slip-and-fall accidents in the workplace thereby reducing accidental injuries and liabilities for the business owner.
Floor Cleanliness And Protection
Another important reason for installing industrial mats is to keep the floors clean and well protected. Entryway industrial mats are installed in the main doorway for people to scrape and remove all dirt and debris from outdoors from their shoes before going into the building. This means that the mats trap all this dirt and debris, which could have been carried inside the building to dirty the floors. Interior or indoor matting solutions help protect floors from coarse and rough exposure to the soles of the shoes of users.
Anti-fatigue floor mats are specially designed industrial mats that help relieve physical stress and strain in the workplace. These mats feature special foam materials that absorb physical stress and strain when the user has been standing or seating for too long. They help relieve fatigue in the workplace thereby providing ergonomic comfort to users. This increases workforce productivity due to improved health and rejuvenated spirits.
Beauty And Professional Appeal
Lastly, industrial mats are used to enhance the aesthetic and professional appeal of any workplace. Most of these industrial safety mats feature classic pattern impressions on their surfaces. We even have industrial logo mats that feature the logo and brand name of the company on their top sides. These mats project a classy outlook of the company to visiting clients.
