Sailing along the high seas sounds like a lot of fun, but a big part of having that fun is making sure you install a durable and protective boat mat in areas where non-slip safety is necessary. Salty waters can be corrosive, and with barnacles constantly growing from bow to stern, you probably have a lot of things to worry about. Make sure you do not overlook safety! Accidents due to slippery conditions are always a threat on boats. Therefore, using a boat mat can be greatly beneficial. If you are not sure what marine flooring will best fit your needs, start by looking at flooring made of rubber. Rubber surfacing can offer amazing anti-slip qualities and long-lasting durability in outdoor environments. Rubber matting for boat decks is also a great DIY project because it is very simple to install. With a variety of styles, colors, and sizes, we are certain there is something that will adhere to your aesthetic needs, too.
Whether you are hanging out in the marina or taking your boat out into the open seas for a joy ride—wet conditions will always be a risky environment. With unpredictable waves splashing onto the deck, a non-slip boat mat is going to provide a more secure and non-slip surface. As a material, rubber has a naturally high coefficient of friction. This means that rubber inherently enhances traction. Thus, when used as flooring, a rubber boat mat will minimize the chances that someone will slip and fall while walking around on your boat. Furthermore, much of our rubber matting for boat decks comes prefabricated with surface textures. These patterns of corrugations that texture many of our products are useful, as well as aesthetically pleasing. For one thing, these corrugations increase the number of points of contact between the flooring and people’s feet, thereby further securing their grip as they traverse said flooring. For another, the many styles of patterns we offer are a testament to just how beautiful some mats can be. From diamond-plate to checkered patterns, there is a variation of marine flooring that matches your tastes, as well as needs. Some rubber flooring is offered with raised designs meant to amplify rubber’s naturally high coefficient for friction. The design adds a rich traction surface that will help people stay on their feet even in wet conditions.
Marine flooring needs to be especially tough to withstand the unique environment of watery locations, whether it is the ocean or a lake. A vessel’s floor is always exposed to corrosive sunlight and is often inundated with water. Therefore, the boat mat must also be able to withstand these harsh environments. Our rubber matting for boat decks is unparalleled in terms of durability, safety, and cost-effectiveness. Simply put, there is no replacement for the value you get when you choose rubber flooring for your boat. It comes in different styles to suit all types of situations. For example, you can use a modular floor covering for more temporary applications since these mats can be easily removed when not in use. Employing temporary rubber boat decking to cover existing surfaces is a cost-saving strategy which also improves marine safety. Boat floor coverings made of rubber can withstand all weather conditions like excess sunlight, rain, and some saltwater while maximizing slip-resistance. And if you are worried about the steps on your boats being safety hazards, we have you (and your steps) covered! Stair treads such as our diamond-plate rubber stair mats are perfect for covering any stairway which experiences any degree of moisture or slipperiness otherwise. They—like our flooring—are made of rubber, too, which means that your boat’s steps can enjoy all the benefits that rubber flooring offers to your boat deck.
Boats can be as unique as their owners. For that reason, having a variety of options when it comes to a boat mat is very important. There are lots of available sizes of rubber matting that we offer. For example, consider rubber runners, which are rolls of rubber flooring that can cover entire walkways or rooms with as few seams as possible. Also, consider modular flooring options, which come in predetermined sizes for areas that are smaller, yet still dangerous. If you want something smaller and wider, there are interlocking rubber tiles, which also offer the same benefits that a boat mat does. Of course, there are mats which offer great protection for specific locations—like the foot of the helm. And as we have mentioned, we offer many styles of rubber stair treads, which all serve to significantly enhance the level of safety you and your guests experience while using your vessel’s stairways. All of these different types of marine flooring have their own variations, too. Some options are offered in different colorways. Others come with different types of surface patterns. The many ways in which we vary our selection of boat flooring helps us cater to even the most particular of applications. No matter how specific your demands are, there is likely a product that fits your needs. These options, paired with the fact that rubber is easily customizable, ensures that a product from FloorMatCompany.com can fit easily into most nooks and crannies.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of boating has to be the fact that you take care of your boat yourself—much like how an automobile enthusiast takes diligent care of his or her own car. Regardless of your level of interest in the actual maintenance of your vessel, the application of a boat mat does not have to be a hassle. Installation is extremely easy with rubber surfacing. Most of our products stay down under their own weight. And for those that do not, simply apply a basic double-sided tape to ensure that the product stays secured to its underlying flooring. Of course, if you want something more permanent, double-sided adhesives work great for those mats which naturally stay down, too. Regardless of your level of technical expertise, boat deck flooring is very easy to install yourself. Moreover, because rubber naturally resists water, it is extremely easy to clean. Simply use water and a basic household cleaning solution to clear the mat of any lingering debris. However, we do recommend that you avoid using caustic chemicals, such as bleach, to clean your product.

Remember that the exterior floor of a boat is the most exposed and the most utilized part of the vessel. Therefore, protecting this area is extremely important. A boat mat will give you a sturdier surface to stand on; it will enhance the level of anti-slip safety that you, your loved ones, and your guests will experience while on your boat; and it will add a touch of personality to your boat’s floors. Without non-slip boat mats, your boat can be a very dangerous location, especially since seafaring can be tumultuous. People falling off the deck of a ship is a common tragedy. Not only is rubber boat deck flooring an excellent safety option, but it will also remain a long-lasting flooring option that will not be harmed after extended exposure to otherwise damaging environmental factors. Use a rubber boat mat from FloorMatCompany.com and create a safe and enjoyable environment on your boat!
Furthermore, whenever we can, we employ the use of recycled rubber materials in our products. This practice helps us minimize the amount of environmental damage caused by the rubber industry since the majority of rubbers are non-biodegradable. Our recycled rubber products are made from discarded car tires, which otherwise end up in landfills. This also helps us reduce manufacturing costs. These savings are then translated toward our competitive price points, which we hope our customers appreciate—along with the minimized environmental impact that our products generate.
