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.
- ESD Kumfi Pebble 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.

Aquasafe offers many advantages over the abrasive material as it has an embossed textured surface that prevents the harbouring of any bacteria or dirt, can be very easily cleaned, and being a very tough material, provides excellent impact protection.
- Diamond grip aluminium plates are the ideal solution for use in areas where Diamond Grip tape is not suitable i.e constantly wet, uneven or loose surfaces. They are commonly used on external wooden surfaces such as decking as well as applying as slip resistant stair treads. With a non slip coating covering most of the top surface and finished with rounded corners these aluminium plates combine functionality and aesthetic into one.
- Cable Protectors offer a simple and cheap solution to hazards presented by training wires and leads. With two seperate internal channels, cables can be simply inserted through a slot on the base of the profile that then lay flat on the floor surface. Idea for use in offices, storage areas and workshops.
