Non slip shower mats aren’t just for bathrooms.
From commercial changing rooms to private pools, non slip matting is essential. Where there’s water, there’s slippery surfaces and slips are a major safety hazard in wet areas. Rubber non slip shower, pool and bath mats cover the floors to add friction while still allowing water to drain through. Tubular PVC design is one often seen at poolsides, but we also offer a drainable loop pile non slip pool mat to keep your floor clean too.
Keeping your customers safe is a legal requirement in many industries, so while private pool owners might leave their slip hazards standing, business owners can’t make that mistake. Non slip matting around the edge of a pool is required by the building code – make sure you know your compliance requirements. Children running and jumping from the side of a swimming pool is extremely dangerous without adequate slip protection.
Gripping to the floor and creating friction underfoot is the obvious safety feature of non slip matting, but draining water is equally as important. Pooled water on the surface of a mat reduces its effectiveness by adding slipperiness to the floor. Excessive wear is also likely to reduce the lifespan of the mat, so proper drainage is important for longevity too.
Although commercial pools have an obvious need for non slip mats, they are also used in the residences of the elderly. Older adults have less balance than others, and a slip can be extremely dangerous. Aged care homes and private bathrooms should feature non slip shower mats for their elderly residences. In some industries, it is also the law to provide adequate safety measures.
