There are many very good reasons for why slip-resistant flooring is predominantly made from rubber! Every material has a certain coefficient of friction. And of all the materials rated with a coefficient of friction, rubber has one of the highest. This means that, naturally, rubber is one of the best materials for creating a surface that enhances traction. In terms of flooring, this translates to excellent gripping capabilities that are highly desirable in a variety of settings. Here at FloorMatCompany.com, we take full advantage of rubber’s natural traction-enhancing qualities, using rubber to make most of our slip-resistant flooring options. On top of that, we even deck most of these options out with intricate surface patterns, which—while looking nice—further increase the amount of traction that rubber naturally provides. These surface textures act as additional points of contact between the rubber floors and people’s feet, which makes them coveted when it comes to the best slip-resistant flooring options. And for our customers who are especially concerned about the visual appeal of their newly resurfaced space, the many types of textures we offer certainly cater toward even the most particular of consumers.
Perfect for residential, commercial, or industrial settings, our slip-resistant flooring will help protect guests, customers, and employees from potentially devastating accidents that could result in costly medical bills. Slips, trips, and falls can be more damaging than many people realize, which is why we attempt to limit them at every opportunity. Our non-slip runner mats can be custom cut to your needs and are available in seamless lengths of up to 50 feet. Essentially, no matter your size requirement, we have got you covered. Plus, our anti-slip options are also easy to install and even easier to maintain!
We use many types of rubber materials when making our mats. However, for the most part, we aim toward using recycled and reclaimed rubber materials. The reasons for this are manyfold. First and foremost, recycled and reclaimed rubber materials are environmentally-friendly: they repurpose discarded car tires into functional flooring options that multiply the lifespan of the tire’s rubber many times. Otherwise, tires are simply discarded into landfills where they take a millennia to decay. Secondly, recycled and reclaimed rubber materials are much more cost-effective to source than their non-recycled counterparts. This means that recycled rubber products are much less costly to produce than products made of rubber that is brand new. These savings that we gain from using such materials directly translates to the price points at which we offer our products. Third and finally, car tires are built specifically to withstand the harshest outdoor factors. On a daily basis, tires must contend with the presence of harsh chemicals, direct exposure to sunlight, heavy impacts from objects, and rugged abrasions from road conditions. Of course, these qualities that make tires so resilient are translated directly into our recycled rubber floors. During the recycling process, these rubber materials are also specially treated to offer added protection against moisture and other abrasive conditions. This is done on top of rubber’s natural plethora of resilient properties! Altogether, by using mats that employ our rubber non-slip material, you would not just be inheriting all the strong qualities that make automobile tires so resilient when they are on the road, but you would also be buying a product that is environmentally friendly! By buying an anti-slip mat made of tire-derived rubber, you’re directly reducing the amount of waste that gets fed into landfills, thereby decreasing your own net carbon footprint. As we know, rubber offers a naturally high level of friction, but—because our slip-resistant flooring is often manufactured with raised surface textures—our traction mats are designed to offer maximum efficiency, all in one package!
Safety is one of the most prominent concerns for business owners because, oftentimes, any slip, trip, or fall that occurs within or around their buildings can be a liability with all of its accompanying lawsuits. It is an unfortunate reality that slips and falls comprise a significant percentage of all workplace injuries in the United States. Naturally, slip-resistant flooring is an ideal means of preventing these injuries. Keep guests, customers, and employees safe by use slip-resistant flooring in busy hallways, bathrooms, and entryways, actively preventing potential accidents from taking place. Installing a non-slip runner demonstrates that you are proactive in maintaining the safety standards you uphold. By minimizing the danger presented by potentially hazardous environments, you show your appreciation and commitment to employee and customer safety. Plus, you reduce the chances that you will be held liable for a slip and fall accident that occurs in your workplace. What’s more, by using our slip-resistant flooring, you will be providing a softer surfacing for your employees to walk and stand on, ensuring their short- and long-term comfort while operating within their workspace. To a business-owner, this might be of particular concern, especially considering the fact that a comfortable and happy employee is likely much more productive than a fatigued and disgruntled one. In short, enhanced comfort in the workplace is directly linked to increased productivity, which is something both employees and bosses can enjoy. Thus, while our slip-resistant flooring acts as surfacing which greatly enhances safety, it also possesses anti-fatiguing properties which most users will greatly appreciate.
