Standing for long periods of time on cold, hard floors causes general fatigue plus a host of other health complaints. These conditions, coupled with slips, trips and falls lead to decreased productivity, absenteeism and ultimately cost employers millions each year. Blue Diamond industrial mats are designed to reduce these occupational risks to a minimum and create a safe, comfortable working environment.
Up to 80% of workers who stand at work suffer from backache, headaches, poor circulation or knee and foot problems. Research has proved that using an anti-fatigue mat during an 8 hour period reduces tiredness and increases comfort by 50% in comparison to a hard floor. The matting encourages posture change and insulates the feet from temperature extremes and vibration, often reducing levels of absenteeism by up to 30%. 20% of accidents in the workplace are caused by slips, trips and falls. Anti-slip surfacing or raised duckboards can eliminate these risks by keeping feet off wet, slippery floors. Breakage of delicate items and tools can be costly and troublesome to clean up. Matting can be utilised to protect both floors and equipment.
- Texture Top is a heavy duty anti-fatigue mat designed to withstand sparks and solders caused by welding. The tough pebble embossed rubber surface is bonded onto a resilient microcellularvinyl base giving excellent anti-fatigue properties. With it's easy to clean surface, texture top will withstand most industrial fluids and chemicals.
- Interflex Grip is an extremely tough duckboard matting with aggressive anti-slip surface, suitable for heavy duty industrial use. This matting will ensure maximum safety in wet, oil and greasy areas as well as providing ergonomic comfort for workers standing for long periods.
- Interflex Hazard is a traditional grid welded PVC duckboard matting with high visibility yellow strips down each side for workplace safety for use in industrial and commercial environments where slip hazards exist. The matting is designed to self-drain making it suitable for use in wet areas indoors or outdoors and where oil, grease or chemicals exist.
- ESD Kumfi Tough is formulated to dissipate static electricity. Simple worker tasks - working, walking or even sitting on certain types of stools - creates static electric. Left unchecked, static can discharge into static sensitive equipment, potentially causing damage. Conductive/Anti-static matting drains static from workers, preventing unpleasant static shocks and safeguarding equipment.
