Perfectly suited for use inside of industrial buildings, but also easily applicable to several environments, a roll rubber mat can provide a safe surface to walk on in any location that might see hazardous conditions or heavy foot traffic. Because aisle ways tend to connect different parts of a building, they will often be busy locations which will see more wear and tear than other areas and they are also areas that harbor the most debris. If moisture is ever an issue, then the use of a roll rubber mat is an ideal choice because of its natural resistance to water, which will also help to inhibit the growth of mildew and mold. An anti-slip rubber runner will often come equipped with a richly textured surface that is designed to add traction to rubber’s already naturally high coefficient of friction. Also, regardless of the length of your aisle way, protection is not something you’ll ever have to do without thanks to our custom mats, which ensures that you get the right length roll rubber mat for just about any location.
Bathrooms, dining areas, and workstations tend to require a non-slip roll rubber mat to ensure a certain amount of safety because they seem to carry the highest risks. Bathrooms and dining areas can have wet floors, and employees will tend to spend most of their time in their designated workstation/area. For that reason, it may be easy to forget aisle, walkways, or corridors. However, these can be high-risk areas too, and should not be overlooked. According to Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, “Every year in America, nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury from which some may never recover.” This is a staggering number that custom mats could potentially help to prevent by creating a safe and non-slip work floor.
A roll rubber mat can help promote non-slip safety in two ways. Firstly, rubber rolled flooring is a moisture resistant surfacing option. It only takes a few drops of moisture to make a hard/smooth surface into a hazardous area. Linoleum, tile, and even concrete can become slippery if moisture or any other sort of residue is present. Rubber has a naturally high coefficient of friction that is paired with a rich texture. This results in a flooring option that will afford excellent slip resistance. So, by simply placing a long rubber mat in busy aisles you could help prevent falls and serious injuries. Secondly, rubber offers superior traction-enhancing properties. Because not all falls are due to slips, the texture and friction of a runner mat will also come in handy in the absence of moisture. Grip and texture can help keep people standing should they stumble, trip, or accidently be pushed. Such accidents are more readily seen in high traffic areas such as aisles, halls, or corridors.
Along with non-slip safety, a roll rubber mat can also offer excellent floor protection. Whether your aisle is in an industrial, residential, or commercial location, the protection of your building, both external as well as internal, should be an important priority. It doesn’t matter if you own or rent the building that you are occupying, keeping it presentable and damage free is an important aspect of safety as well as business etiquette. Your roll rubber mat won’t just protect employees, guests, and clients—but it will also help to safeguard the original flooring structure of the aisle.
Much of our roll out mat collection is made, in part, from recycled materials the source of which is discarded automobile tires. The use of such a strong material source (tires are proven to be tough and capable of withstanding some very abrasive conditions) gives our runner mats amazing resilience, the likes of which just isn’t seen in many other flooring options. This is a product that will stand up to harsh conditions and will keep up with the wear and tear of foot traffic. And while it will eventually wear out and need to be replaced, it will be a lot less expensive than the replacement of permanent flooring fixtures!
Due in large part to rubber’s natural resistance to water and the mobility offered by a roll rubber mat, it is a flooring option that will be remarkably easy to maintain. When installed, a broom is more than enough to sweep away debris and if your mat is short enough to be safely picked up it can just as easily be shaken out. For more thorough cleanings a damp mop will clean away stuck on dirt and grime, and if the roll rubber mat is located outside and is fully rubberized then it can very easily be washed off with a hose and left to dry.
Aisle ways are busy areas and construction in or around them can usually mean a slowdown of the day’s events and even productivity. Therefore, replacement of permanent flooring structures can be very disruptive to a business or industry. Fortunately, that’s not something you’ll have to worry about with a runner mat! Rubber flooring rolls are incredibly easy to install, requiring very little technical knowledge—very simply all that is required is rolling the mat out and placing it appropriately along the aisle you wish to cover. And because this flooring option is available as custom mats, which can be cut to the appropriate lengths that are necessary (up to 50 feet) nearly any corridor, hall, and aisle way can be afforded protection.
Easy to maintain and easy to replace, our durable and hardworking roll rubber mat options offer both non-slip safety and floor protection. Rubber is the ideal material for creating rubber mats due to its natural traction-enhancing and protective properties. Using a roll rubber mat is a great investment to make for any business, home, or industrial location.
