Working in industries that require you to be on your feet for extended periods can cause stress and fatigue to the body which can increase the incidence of injury and accidents among your employees as well as slow down production. Luckily, rubber floor mats are an ergonomic solution that lessens the risk of these things from happening.
What Are Rubber Floor Mats?
Rubber floor mats, especially the type we handle here at DACO, are thicker and more comfortable to stand on than other models. These mats are known for their anti-fatigue properties which means your employees can stand on them for hours during their shifts and not feel sore and achy.
When rubber mats are used, worker fatigue is decreased, and when worker fatigue has reduced, so does the incidence of slips and falls. This can reduce the amount of worker’s compensation claims due to employee injuries. In the end, rubber mats will save you money.
As your employees stand on hard, cold, hot, or vibrating surfaces, safety can be an issue. Rubber floor mats keep surfaces balanced and comfortable. Our floor mats are tested and approved by the National Floor Safety Institute.
Ortho I and Ortho II anti-fatigue mats are 3/4″ thick, ESD anti-fatigue mats are 5/8″ thick, and the anti-slip mats are 1/4″ thick. Each mat is made from superior closed cell virgin nitrile rubber. Ortho I has an antimicrobial compound added as part of the manufacturing process to prevent mold, mildew and bacterial growth. These models are incredibly lightweight and easy to lift.
Our mats can withstand exposure to petroleum products, animal and vegetable fats, and a plethora of other chemicals without breaking down. Many people enjoy our mats being made with non-allergenic material that’s latex and silicone-free.
You can easily clean the mats with ammonia, bleach, chlorine, or any acid-based cleaner and they can also be steam cleaned. Mats are available with beveled edges on all four sides for ease of cart traffic and added security, but are available without if needed. We also offer a 3″ safety strip if needed.
The mats are long-lasting and typically hold up for 3 to 8 years, depending on how they are being used. Available in multiple sizes and shapes, you can customize the mats according to the needs of your industry.
Comfort benefits include:
- Improves grip and shock absorption
- Reduces foot, leg, and back pain
- Stimulates blood flow
- Encourages better posture
