Choosing the correct anti slip mat can go a low way to ensuring your building, warehouse or home is safe from slips and falls.
Areas like decking, ramps and foot paths commonly pose slip hazards from a build up of dirt, grime or ice. It is important for building managers to ensure these areas are treated prior to a slip and fall accident.
Anti-slip mats for pools are very common to prevent slips and falls. It is important when choosing slip free mats for around pools that it drains well. Build up of water near and around pools can contain body fats and can quickly become unhygienic.
A particular issue in kitchens and industrial environments, grease and oil spills are treacherous and exceedingly dangerous. There’s not just a high slip risk, but the area is usually punctuated with hard, sharp surfaces and dangerous items. It is important that the mat can resist the chemicals used in the area with full nitrile based rubber anti slip mats like our Comfort Clean and True Grip are perfect for these areas.
