While most of our products are developed for protecting equipment and devices, we’re also in the business of protecting workers and the public. In areas that may become slippery when wet, anti-skid mats often used to prevent injuries from accidental falls.
Anti-skid mats are layers of patterned rubber or plastic that are placed on the ground or on treacherous areas, such as stairs or ladders. Anti-skid (also called anti-slid and non-skid) materials can be used to keep large equipment and small devices from unwanted movement.
Uses of Anti-Skid Mats
Anti-skid mats can be used in numerous areas both indoor and outdoor, for workers, elderly, top-heavy adults, and children.
