COMMERCIAL KITCHENS NEED SPECIAL MATS

Soft n Safe Kitchen Mats The major reason for the breakdown or degrading of mats in commercial kitchens is the rubber mats themselves.

Too often rubber mats are sold into kitchens that are nowhere near the specification that is essential if the rubber mats are to last in the difficult environment that is a kitchen.

The problem is that however good extraction systems may be, there is always a degree of fats and oils in the atmosphere and this ultimately settles on horizontal surfaces. And this includes the floor and the mats. In addition, in every kitchen there are inevitable spills which add to the problem.

MAT WORLD LAUNCHES UNIQUE “S”-MAT

Made to Mat World’s specification and to their own design, the new S-Mat has a multitude of advantages over other mats currently available.

It was designed, in the first instance, as a wet area mat, very much with aquatic centres and swim pool complexes in mind. The requirements for such areas is that the water should be channeled away easily, keeping the top walk-on surface as water-free as possible, but it has to also be kind to bare feet. In addition it must provide a slip-resistant surface, be light and easy to lift in large dimension mats and yet be stable enough to stay in position.
