Grocery Store Areas that Need Rubber Mats

Rubber mats ensure that safety is promoted in any industrial, domestic or commercial facility – including grocery stores. Large supermarkets and smaller-scale grocery stores alike have frequently high footfall and it is important to fit each area with mats to avoid slips, trips and falls.

Grocery Store Mats

We have listed the grocery store areas that ideally require safety mats:

Store Entrance

Entrance mats not only promote good slip resistance, they also demonstrate high quality drainage properties – so the mess stays outside and the floors stay drier! Highly resistant to daily wear and tear, rubber entrance mats can also help to give the impression of professionalism.

Fresh Produce Section

Shoppers tend to linger in the fresh produce section, as it holds a wide array of farm-produce to peruse.

Anti-fatigue mats in this area can reduce customer fatigue caused by prolonged walking and standing - the longer they are comfortable, the more time they will likely spend selecting their items and this gives you the opportunity to increase those all-important sales!

Meat, Seafood and Deli Section

Since the meat and seafood are either refrigerated or placed on ice (and some seafood on water) to keep them fresh, this area can be prone to water spills and that can be a potential risk factor.

Assure your shoppers’ safety by placing anti-slip mats in this department.

The Checkout

Designed to provide safety and comfort, anti-fatigue mats can noticeably increase your employees’ concentration and productivity. They can also help to avoid health risks caused by prolonged standing such as:

  • Sore feet
  • Swelling of the legs
  • Varicose veins
  • General muscular fatigue
  • Lower back pain
  • Stiffness in the neck and shoulders

Cold Storage Rooms

Rubber mats are also suitable for installation in cold storage rooms, as they demonstrate the perfect employee-friendly characteristics:

  • Prevent employee injuries
  • Provide cushioning
  • Reduce the risk of falling and tripping

Durable and hardwearing, rubber mats can also withstand extreme high and low temperatures, depending on the polymer used – making them ideal for cold storage applications.

Additionally, cold storage rooms can make use of PVC curtain strips to retain the cold air.

If you are responsible for running a large supermarket chain or even if it’s a little corner shop, you should always strive for best employee safety practices. By installing safety rubber mats, you can effectively minimise possible accidents – and enjoy a more productive workforce!  For quality rubber matting products that will keep your store safely productive, contact the rubber experts today on 01702 560194.
