The Rundown on Matting: Commercial & Industrial

From the entryway of a school building to the shop floor of a manufacturing plant, matting has a place in just about every industry. While the function of matting varies—ranging from safety and ergonomics to facility maintenance or even decor—its integral and fundamental application in both commercial and industrial environments provides solutions to everyday problems. Here’s a rundown on some of the most common commercial and industrial matting types/functions:

Safety- and Health-Related Matting Functions

Depending on the specific mat, some prominent safety- and health-related matting functions may include:  

  • Preventing life-threatening electrical shock and/or harmful chemical contact
  • Mitigating the risk of accidental slips and falls
  • Providing ergonomic support to increase worker comfort and productivity, while minimizing pain and fatigue
  • Guarding against bacteria in germ-intensive environments

Maintenance-Related Matting Functions

Maintenance-related matting functions may include:

  • Prolonging floor surface life
  • Dust & Dirt Reduction / Minimizing maintenance and reducing cleaning costs


Scraper Matting

Did you know that 70-80% of a building’s dust, grime and dirt is tracked inside on people’s feet? That’s why scraper mats are a crucial function toward facility maintenance efforts, effectively serving as your first line of defense against contaminants entering the building, all while saving you maintenance dollars and protecting your building’s assets. Appropriate for indoor or outdoor use, the efficacy of scraper mats lies in the implied “scraping” action they provide, effectively trapping dirt and debris in recessed areas until they are cleaned.

Scraper/Wiper Matting

Scraper/Wiper mats provide both a “scraping” and “wiping” action that to further prevents dirt and moisture from entering your building. These mats are typically used indoors and made of a tough fabric that channels and retains dust in recessed grooves, while absorbing moisture in the fabric face.

Wiper Matting

Meant to be used indoors and in conjunction with both a scraper mat and scraper/wiper mat, Wiper mats are designed to stop any remaining dust, dirt or moisture from entering the facility, improving the appearance and life of your flooring. These mats are typically made with carpet facing to complement most interiors.

Custom Logo Matting

Custom logo mats are a unique way to promote a company’s image. Logos or other designs can be replicated on the face of numerous styles of mats without any setup charge. Logo mats add a professional look to any entrance, while acting as a further barrier to keep contaminants from entering a facility.


Anti-Fatigue Matting

Anti-fatigue mats provide ergonomic support through a cushioned surface that can reduce worker fatigue by up to 50% and increase worker productivity by over 20%. These mats work by increasing blood circulation and reducing pressure on the body’s musculoskeletal system. They also reduce foot arch pronation, varicose veins, and pain commonly attributed to standing for long periods of time.

Anti-Static Matting

Anti-static mats include non-conductive mats and static dissipative mats that protect against shock and high voltages. Non-conductive (Switchboard) mats insulate workers, protecting them from deadly shocks generated by high voltage equipment. Meanwhile, static dissipative (ESD) mats are designed to protect sensitive equipment by quickly drawing the static off workers before they touch susceptible chemicals or equipment. The primary difference between the two is that conductive mats disperse the static electricity quicker than static dissipative and thus should be used around the most sensitive equipment.

Anti-Slip Matting

85% of worker’s compensation claims are attributed to employees slipping on slick floors, which is why anti-slip mats are so important. These mats have uniquely designed and textured surfaces that help to prevent accidental slips and falls in the workplace. Heavy-duty rubber keeps the mats in place and prevents movement on a variety of surfaces.

Flow Through Matting

Flow through mats allow liquids to pass through them to eliminate slip hazards. Anti-fatigue properties provide comfort when standing for long periods of time. The thick rubber helps alleviate stress on the legs, feet and lower back.

Clean Room Matting

Perfect for laboratory, medical and food processing applications, clean room mats are designed to trap impurities, preventing dirt, debris, and contaminants from entering sensitive areas. Clean room sticky mats feature an adhesive “tacky” surface that pulls dirt and dust from shoes, wheels and other passing objects before they can contaminate a “clean room.”

Fight Flu Season: Special Pricing on Disinfectants, Hand Soaps & Sanitizers

This past weekend marked the official start to the Fall season, and along with the onset of cooler weather and changing scenery comes a less fortunate seasonal occurrence—flu season. According to the CDC, flu activity begins to increase in the months of October and November, and activity peaks typically between December and February. That said, there are preventative actions—and products—that can help you fight this flu season, and we’re here to help.

“Preventative actions to stop the spread of germs” is one of CDC’s “Take 3 Actions to Fight the Flu” in 2018. Some of those preventative actions include:

  • Washing your hands often with soap and water; and if soap and water are not available, using an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.

In the context of work, what other preventative measures does the CDC recommend to stop the spread of germs, such as those that cause the flu? A few of those include:

  • Finding out about your employer’s plans if an outbreak of the flu or another illness occurs, as well as whether flu vaccinations are offered on-site.
  • Routinely cleaning objects and surfaces that are frequently touched, including doorknobs, keyboards, and phones, to help remove germs.
  • Making sure your workplace has an adequate supply of tissues, soap, paper towels, alcohol-based hand sanitizers, and disposable wipes.

In line with these recommendations and in preparation for the upcoming flu season, we’re holding a special promotion on a variety of disinfectants, cleaners, hand soaps and sanitizers—all from trusted industry brands like Purell, Lysol, Dial, and Clorox!

BUT HURRY – Promotional pricing only lasts through September 30, 2018, so don’t miss your chance to stock up on these essentials to effectively fight the flu this season!
