Rubber Matting 3mm and 6mm
Our large range of rubber matting is used in many different environments. We have voltage tested electrical safety ESD matting that provides protection in electrical environments. Many of our rubber matting products have the option of being able to purchase cut lengths of matting to the length you require, reducing the need to buy the whole matting roll.
There are so many uses for rubber flooring matting, in fact you don't even need to use it as a floor covering, it can also be used to cover table tops and line drawers, to protect tools and stop items sliding around.
Many people find these rubber products to be ideal for putting on the floor of stables. When used as stable matting, it can reduce the amount of time taken to muck out a horse and greatly improve the cleanliness of the horse's home. Due to the properties of quality rubber, the flooring will also act to cushion the impact of hooves on concrete and help to protect equine knees in the event of a stumble.
Also within the horse world, our matting rolls can be placed in horse boxes to improve the comfort of travelling animals.
Within our selection of rubber mats, there are a number of elements to consider, the first of which is thickness. A 6mm thick mat will be quite heavy to lift and less flexible, so not so good for applications where weight needs to be kept to a minimum. The advantage of a heavy duty mat is that it is less likely to curl up at the edges, due to the added rigidity. A 3mm thick mat will be easier to lay and cut, but will offer less protection.
Another use of this very flexible product is in the lining of workshop drawers. Once glued down it softens the impact of dropping tools and makes the action of opening and closing the draw quieter. In order to fit our rubber to the base of a draw or cupboard, simply measure the size you need and carefully cut with a knife. The cut length can then be glued down.
If you move stock on flat bed trolleys, then this matting can also be stuck to the platform surface. This can the benefits of stopping items sliding off and protecting the load from damage caused by the hard platform.
The patterns on the matting can also vary greatly. Often used in entrances, a circular or coin pattern increases grip and is easy to keep clean. The fluted options have small channels in the surface which can aid in the drainage of water from the surface of them. Lastly there is checker plate design, where individual squares are combined to form a pattern
