Imagine this: Your office entrance is beautiful. You seem to have hit all the right buttons when it comes to making first impressions. Think about the muddy, watery footprints and the water pools that are on the floors of reception. It takes away the professional air. It can cause havoc in your lobby, reception, and entrance areas. This will impact how people perceive your business. But it could be worse. Unattended water on floors can cause slippage and other accidents. This can lead to injuries and even legal action. This is not the type of situation that any professional firm would want to be in.
These unpleasant situations can be avoided by choosing the right mat.
Most of the time water is carried into the building by guests on their soles, particularly in wet or rainy areas. It is possible to tap and drain most of the water before it enters your building. This will prevent any puddling or wet footprints. Clean and safe floors will only be possible with dry floors.
Waterhog Mats are perfect for this purpose. These mats are made of durable, industrial-grade materials and are perfect for this task. They are thicker and more resistant to temperature changes. By definition, a drainage mat has drainage holes that allow water to drain off the surface. These mats are great for rainy days but can also be used in dry conditions because dirt, mud, and other debris can pass through the drainage holes.
Waterhog mats are versatile and can be used in many areas of a facility.
Outdoor drainage mats can be placed outside your front door to help reduce the amount of dirt and water that gets in the business. The mats’ drainage holes are used to gently scrape the soles of shoes. Once the mat is clean, the debris, water, dirt, and moisture that has been removed from the soles of the shoes drain out through the drainage holes. Because it doesn’t remain on the mat, other shoes can pick up any dirt or debris. Drainage holes are a great feature if your business building is in wet areas. The drainage holes allow water to drain off the surface, rather than being carried inside and collecting on the floors of reception areas and lobbies.
These mats work best when combined with an interior entrance mat. This mat scrapes the dust from shoes and absorbs any moisture. The indoor-outdoor system will provide safety and hygiene benefits for visitors.
Areas With Swimming Pools
Pools are full of water. As people splash around in the pool, a lot of water is thrown around. People are more likely to fall, slip and get hurt when water condenses in puddles. This can be dangerous for anyone but is particularly dangerous when children, the elderly, and others don’t know how to swim. Waterhog mats are a great way to keep everyone safe when walking on slippery surfaces. Drainage holes allow water to drain off the surface, rather than collecting on it and making it slippery.
Drainage mats indoors can be used to accomplish a variety of tasks.
- Kitchens: These drainage mats are water-resistant and grease-resistant and are great for areas that use a lot of butter, fat, sauces, and other liquids.
- Showers: A rubber mat with drainage holes on the floor allows water to drain from showers.
- Saunas & Steam Rooms: Because of the damp environment and low visibility, saunas & steam rooms may benefit from drainage mats to prevent slippage in enclosed spaces.
- Workshops: Engine oils, grease, motor fluids, and other fluids are no longer a danger to slick surfaces.
- Factory Assembly Lines: Drainage pads might be helpful in factories that work with oils, liquids, or foods. Rubber anti-fatigue drainage mats can also be beneficial for employees who are tired from standing for long periods.
