Mat World New Zealand, the matting division of Glomesh New Zealand Ltd., has included in their range a mat sometimes referred to as a “sticky” mat. Named CleanStep and consisting of 60 adhesive coated, disposable sheets, these mats are used particularly in areas where extra high degrees of cleanliness are essential.
Prolonged standing on hard surfaces can lead to long-term circulatory problems including varicose veins resulting in pain and suffering.
Long periods of standing cause physical fatigue including pain in feet, legs and back, neck and shoulders.
Mats supplied by Mat World are all made using first-class materials. among the many features of these mats is their slip-resistance. However, great care needs to
be taken both in the placement of these mats and the care of the mats and the floor itself to ensure that the mats are used in circumstances which will not allow the mats or the users of the mats to slip.
It is generally accepted that there is a marked difference between domestic and commercial carpeting. To no less an extent is there a considerable difference between commercial mats depending on the traffic that matting is expected to accept. The consequence of choosing the wrong matting shows up in the very expensive cost of constantly having to replace low-quality matting in high traffic areas.
It is an unfortunate truism that matting quality is not easily determined simply by its look or even by its feel and the result is that too often poor quality matting designed for low traffic volumes is placed in high traffic areas.
