Which Floor Mat Solutions Prevent The Risk Of Falls?

A professional floor mat is considered personal protective equipment (PPE). To limit the risk of slipping in your premises, here are three solutions offered to you:

A. Non-Slip Mat At The Entrance

The non-slip mat like a poolside matting is specially designed to reduce the risk of slips and falls. Thanks to its technology, it adheres firmly to the ground and is resistant to heavy traffic and bad weather. Easy to maintain, it can be placed in front of your entrances and doorsteps to absorb humidity, dust, mud, and gravel brought by shoes from the outside. For you, this is the guarantee of having safer, drier, and cleaner floors.

B. The Tactile Tiles Near The Stairs

These tactile bands have raised pimples that can be detected by the feet or the white cane. Thus, they help visually impaired, or blind visitors overcome an obstacle and considerably limit the risk of falls. They are usually placed at the top and bottom of each staircase or before an obstacle or danger zone. 

C. Bands Of Self-Adhesive Labeling

They stick easily to the ground and also serve to warn of danger (stairs, steps, obstacles, etc.) thanks to their bright color being easily visible. The self-adhesive tape adheres to any clean, sealed, uncoated surface and is easily cut by hand. Several colors and widths are available to meet all needs.
