Rubber Floor Covering for Elevators!

Elevators are a novel invention, the whole premise of which involves the transferring of cargo from one elevation to another. Most modern elevators accomplish this task with a system of pulleys and wires that use weights to offset the weight of the main carriage. What is of more importance than how these elevators work, is what is inside of them, and making sure the cargo safely makes it from point A to point B. Given that elevators involve the use of a carriage moving at a high speed, it is important that the contents of an elevator carriage do not move while in travel to ensure the integrity of this precious cargo. Placing a commercial rubber mat on top of the current elevator surface is one way to increase the stability of the items moving in the elevator.

A commercial rubber mat will increase the friction between the item and the ground to help prevent the slipping and moving of items or people in the carriage. A commercial rubber mat is the cheapest insurance policy an owner can purchase, and the safety and protection of things being transported cannot be understated. Rubber mat tilesare easily installed and can be bought in varying sizes to fit any elevator size.

While elevator types vary, the logic is the same; the protection and safety of assets inside the carriage is imperative, and the use of indoor rubber mats can help these items stay put. More specifically, here are three places where employing a commercial rubber mat can make all the difference.

Installing indoor rubber mats can mitigate the chances of someone slipping on a wet spot and keep building owners safe from expensive lawsuits. Rubber mat tiles should be placed just outside the elevator on each floor as well to help ensure that dirt, grime, and wet sludge don’t get tracked into your elevator.
