Floor coverings and Anti-slip mats for wet areas

Slips and falls are usually the biggest worry in "oily" work environments. They constitute 20-30% of accidents resulting in long absence from work. Losses from this effect are often high, as 30% of falls cause sick leave for more than 21 days.

Four main reasons for slipping or tripping:

• slippery / wet floor due to water or other liquids;

• slippery floor as a result of dry or dusty pollution, eg sawdust;

• permanent or temporary obstacles;

• surface irregularities and level changes, e.g. unmarked thresholds.

Source: NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) is a federal agency in the United States responsible for conducting research and issuing recommendations on prevention of accidents at work. Its mission is to gather knowledge on OSH and translate this knowledge into practical activities.

The Supermaty.pl company has a special range of anti-fatigue mats designed specifically for slippery floors.

Improved adhesion thanks to oil-resistant liners and supermaty.pl mats:

When wet or exposed to oil or grease, floors become dangerously slippery. This causes a liquid that, at the time of footing, is between the sole of the shoe and the floor. This is similar to aquaplaning when driving a car.

Wet sources of pollution are

water, oils, greases and cleaning solutions.

The problem can be solved by increasing the grip by using appropriate footwear and anti-slip mats.

Waste disposal

The floor also becomes slippery due to contamination with dry or dusty bodies, e.g.

Anti-fatigue effect

Standing on a hard surface for a long time can lead to many problems.

First of all, when standing, the muscles contract, which reduces blood flow. This causes muscle and joint pain and blood stasis. In addition, standing for a long time causes pronation or excessive flattening of the feet.

It is tiring and a bit painful, and can lead to plantar fasciitis and other serious foot complications.

The strongest pain in the lower back occurs in people standing daily for 4 hours or more

As noted by James Kendrick in the April 1999 issue of Occupational Health & Safety, the cushioning effect of anti-fatigue mats causes continuous foot micromoversion, which minimizes blood stasis in the legs.

As the second cause of fatigue prof. Dr. Redha Taiar (2011) from the University of Reims in France reported an imbalance.

In addition to using the same muscles too often, when the system is out of balance, the muscles must work harder in finding it and their short response time is maintained at the expense of energy (fatigue).

Taiar emphasized that "without a mat, there is a dysfunction in body balance that can cause pathologies whose development accelerates the performance of the same activities all the time." Such an imbalance is very dangerous for the body.

The use of anti-fatigue mats allows you to achieve the right balance and even distribution of body weight on the right and left leg.

Research by prof. Taiara confirmed that the anti-fatigue mats significantly reduce pain.

A variety of materials and substances. Mats and floor coverings. Supermats must withstand harsh industrial environments.

For this purpose, our modular mats are made of specialized chemical compounds suitable for the given application.

The variety of materials gives a wide selection of the required specialized features, such as oil resistance, static electricity dissipation, flame resistance for welding stations, Grip Step® coating for extremely slippery areas, or a combination of these properties.

Our offer includes mats for general applications at affordable prices and highly specialized mats.

All anti-slip mats and floor coverings available at supermaty.pl are marked with the product number and the name and characteristics of the material from which they were made, which makes it easy to distinguish them.
