Food service matting
Mats for gastronomy are a specific category of products whose main purpose is to protect employees and customers, often working in difficult or humid rooms. Such solutions effectively reduce the risk of slips or trips in everyday functioning.
In the food industry, the issue of safety is put on the proverbial knife blade.
The use of catering mats in everyday work in the kitchen not only protects employees from unwanted accidents, but also affects the efficiency of their work.
Activities such as: chopping, peeling vegetables or straining prepared stocks are associated with constant standing posture and carrying out many physical activities. Chefs are particularly exposed to burns and falls as a result of slipping on a wet surface. Mats designed with the needs of the catering industry in mind significantly facilitate work in the kitchen and increase adhesion to the ground among employees who use them. That is why many chefs breathed a sigh of relief after the introduction of anti-slip pads to the market.
Gastronomy mats are differentiated into typical workstation mats installed in food processing places, as well as antibacterial mats, which are designed to protect against the spread of dangerous infectious diseases to the area of direct contact with food.
Equally popular and often used are anti-fatigue mats, which increase the comfort of working in a standing position and reduce the static load on the body to a minimum. The group of mats for gastronomy also includes the so-called rubber bartending mats that are mounted on islands with a bar. Thanks to them, bartenders can easily continue serving customers, even walking on a partially flooded floor.
The extensive use of mats for gastronomy and their high resistance to fatty and oily substances proves that they are needed in the arrangement of modern food industry facilities.
