Mats help to ensure hygiene from the ground up

16 July 2017

Teknomek has introduced three new matting ranges to its catalogue for 2017. Autoclave anti-fatigue matting which is made from 100% anti-microbial nitrile rubber to reduce bacterial transmission. The mats can be used in dry, wet and oily environments, and are autoclavable up to 121°C. 

The use of anti-fatigue matting can also help improve muscle activity by 50% when compared to standing on hard surfaces such as concrete. This can dramatically reduce standing fatigue and related absenteeism.

 The addition of a deep-sided sole footbath offers an economical option to help  fight against cross-contamination. Made from colourfast, chlorine-resistant high density polythene, the footbath holds up to 18.9 litres of sanitising solution. The mat fit in most main doorways to help prevent contamination between areas, as well as reducing slips and falls around work exits.

 The final new addition is sticky tack matting. As well as catching and holding onto dust and dirt on contact to remove 98% of contaminants from shoes, the smooth vinyl polymer surface also attracts airborne particles electromagnetically.

 A permanent version is designed for long-term use to reduce cost and waste – a simple clean with mild detergent and tackiness is restored while disposable versions offer a convenient alternative, especially in areas of heavy foot traffic. Each mat has 30 numbered layers that can be torn off at the end of each day (or as necessary) and disposed of.
