Message Mats – When Safety Matters Most

These are challenging times. Businesses, schools, hospitals, and other facilities need to make every effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. Workplace safety has a new dimension which includes social distancing, disinfecting and diligent hand washing. Flooring mats can play an effective role in keeping workers both aware and safe. In addition to cleanliness and slip resistance, 6-foot social distancing “message mats” can help both employees and visitors to your building visualize where they need to be to keep everyone more protected.

We also offer an array of Hygiene Message Mats and Walk-in Reminder Mats (from M+A Matting and NoTrax) to ensure your employees and visitors are aware during these challenging times. Pre-printed messages in highly visible colors and graphics help your facility maintain a safe environment while keeping your building cleaner and more comfortable.

Here are some options to consider from NoTrax:

Here are some options to consider from M+A Matting:

StepWell Sanitizing Mat

The StepWell mat provides an all-in-one solution for safely sanitizing shoes. It features a 2′ x 3′ well that holds an abrasive insert and your preferred liquid sanitizer, followed by a 3′ x 5′ carpeted section to help remove any excess moisture from shoes, reducing the likelihood of slips following sanitation. Wash, wipe, and walk on safely!

Stick-and-Stand Mats

Stick-and-Stand mats are adhesive-backed mats designed to clearly mark floors and provide customers with a safe place to stand while waiting in lines.
