The fatigue-fighting, bacteria-blighting mat

31 May 2018 11:09:32 BST

Even a hard floor surface can cause health problems for workers who are on their feet all day. Teknomek is tackling all these problems from the ground up with Teknomek’s food zone anti-fatigue matting range.

Made from 100% anti-microbial nitrile rubber, this hardwearing mat prevents the growth of bacteria and other contaminants, and is resistant to vegetable and fish oils, animal fats and citrus liquids. Its open underside allows fluids and particles to pass through, and the holes make for quick and easy cleaning with a hose.

The mat’s nitrile-infused sponge backing also means it dramatically reduces standing fatigue – a health issue that can lead to costly absenteeism. In fact, it’s worth mentioning that using anti-fatigue mats can improve muscle activity by 50% compared to standing on concrete, and has even reduced absenteeism by 23% within a year of being installed*. Definitely food for thought.

The Teknomek food zone anti-fatigue matting is available as a mat or runner. To find out more tread here.
