Rarely do people live in a place with a single weather extreme, like a place where it constantly rains or a place where it’s always dry. Of course, there are exceptions like the desert, or snowy mountains. But more often than not, people live in areas that will see a whole range of weather patterns—from sunny summers to snowy winters. A waterproof mat is an affordable and durable investment that will bring added safety and aesthetic appeal to nearly any indoor or outdoor area. A waterproof mat is designed to provide maximum quality with minimal upkeep, even in areas with harsh weather conditions. Available in a range of styles, such as runners and individual mats, there is a waterproof rubber flooring option for every need.
A waterproof mat as well as other rubber surfacing products, can be made with durable natural and synthetic rubber variations. Some of the principal advantages of these rubber variations are their amazing resistance against UV rays, ozone, and wet weather. So, whether you live somewhere in the Mojave Desert, or you just happen to have severe heat during the summer like many places in the US, our specialized outdoor waterproof flooring will stand up the extreme heat without cracking or fading in color. And that means that your floor mats will continue to look good and function appropriately for a long time.
If you live in a state like Florida or Louisiana, where a few of its cities see more than 60 inches of annual rainfall, then you probably understand the importance of having a slip resistant and waterproof mat. However, seeing as there’s no single state in the US that doesn’t receive at least more than 5 inches of rainfall a year, it’s safe to assume we all can grasp the importance of having secure footing in wet conditions. A waterproof floor is perfectly suited for these wet environments. Not only are they designed to provide added traction and grip, to help prevent slip and fall accidents, but the material itself is also resilient. Outdoor rubber flooring can often be made from recycled and reclaimed tires, which speaks to the true toughness of this material. Automobile tires are designed to stand up against harsh conditions, such as hot asphalt, excessive moisture, and hard uneven roads.
A common and unfortunate result of excessive rain can be flooding. Water, can have devastating effects on property, causing damage and often destroying things. The use of rubber products in outdoor environments can ensure that one less thing gets destroyed! A rubber non-slip waterproof mat will offer added protection against slip and fall accidents, but it will also survive excessive moisture. Rubber is naturally water resistant, and unlike mats and surfacing made of other materials (such as cloth, leather, silk, or even wood), rubber waterproof materials will not soak up moisture. A waterproof mat is highly non-permeable as its solid structuring does not allow water to pass through them. This ensures that they will continue to function before and after a flood. And due to rubber’s resistance to water, its surface becomes an inhospitable place for mold and mildew to grow.
Outdoor waterproof flooring is necessary in places that get even a little snow fall during the year. Some surfacing options are available in specialized ribbed designs that help remove snow from the soles of shoes, which can in the long run help you save money on the cleaning costs of interior flooring as well as giving you the benefit of non-slip surfacing. But again, the durability of a waterproof mat is really going to shine in this environment because it will stand up to the cold and to heavy foot traffic, while maintaining its shape and functionality.
For tough outdoor applications, rubber surfacing really is the perfect solution. Made from recycled, virgin, and synthetic compounds, waterproof rubber flooring is going to provide you with the best anti-slip qualities, while being highly durable. With a waterproof mat you can apply these great qualities to nearly any space—from the busy outdoor walkways and paths of a corporate building to the entrance of your own home.
