‘Trusted range of products’ from First Mats

‘THE perfect flooring option for areas where extra grip or protection is required, First Mats is delighted to now offer studded rubber flooring,’ says the company.

‘Industry requirements and customer feedback have inspired First Mats to add a type of safety flooring to their already comprehensive range of rubber matting.
‘As specialist providers of industrial health and safety mats; this addition is a welcome, affordable option for those seeking to install a safe and protective floor surface.’
The company continues: ‘Studded Rubber Flooring offers users a durable option for two common workplace situations. First, this style of protective flooring is an excellent option to either protect a floor from damage or replace the surface of an already damaged floor.
‘This leads to great cost savings, by extending the lifetime of the base layer of the floor or offering a quick and cheap alternative to fully refurbishing or replacing a damaged floor.

‘Second, this mat offers a reliable method for increasing the grip of any surface. This is of paramount importance in work areas where users are in danger of slips and falls. The matting is made from natural rubber materials and adopts a coin-shaped or studded pattern to increase traction and limit the chance of slips.’

Adds the company: ‘With fantastic wear- and slip-resistance, as well as resistance against mild acids and alkaline, this is a smart option for those who need a durable and cost-effective workplace flooring. This product is perfect for most commercial situations, including throughout walkways, corridors, stairwells and workshop floors. Although not recommended for use in areas where oils are used, First Mats offer some excellent alternatives when this is the case.’

‘The addition of studded rubber flooring to our range represents our first step into the flooring market. We want to be able to cater for all of the flooring needs of our customers, to ultimately provide them with a better experience and service,’ says Richard O'Connor, marketing & strategy director, First Mats.

‘With flexibility in mind, the new First Mats studded rubber flooring is available in two thicknesses (3mm & 4.5mm), can be cut to custom lengths and can be purchased in either black or grey colours.

‘First Mats pride themselves on offering excellent customer support and impartial advice. To help their customers understand whether studded rubber flooring is the best option for their unique situation, free samples are available on request.’
