STRATA Sales - Stand Safe, Work Comfortably
Is absenteeism and productivity an issue in your company? Did you know that prolonged standing on hard surfaces can lead to serious health conditions such as varicose veins or circulatory problems. Our anti-fatigue mats offer the solution you need. Standing on specially designed anti fatigue mats, muscle movement is increased, which in turn promotes blood flow to the heart. Installing cushioned floor matting helps to increase productivity, worker concentration and comfort.
At Strata, we have over 20 years of experience, and are the leading experts in rubbler floor matting and supply clients throughout the UK and Europe. We also supply mats ideal for industrial applications - view our range of industrial floor matting, as well as other floor safety products such as broad rib mats.
Why do you need cushioned rubber floor mats?
Rubber anti-fatigue floor mats are designed to relieve strain of workers who have to stand for prolonged periods of time to carry out their job. Over time, this strain can lead to worker injury such as back pain, knee pain, and sore feet as well as other lower limb disorders. Scientific studies have demonstrated that prolonged standing over time is stressful and fatiguing.
The type of flooring in workplaces has an important influence on worker comfort and levels of fatigue. Hard floors such as concrete or hardwood are the most uncomfortable for standing workers. Our rubber floor solutions offer a more comfortable and safer option for workers who are on their feet all day. Our mats are suitable for industrial and commercial applications.
If you care for your workforce and want to reduce the risk of lower limb injuries and fatigue, call our sales team (01926 338547) who will be able to advise the right mat for your needs.
How do the mats work?
Such mats allow the body naturally and imperceptibly sway. It's this movement which encourages subtle movement by calf and leg muscles throughout the working day.
This helps to:
Stimulate energy levels
Help oxygen levels
Promote blood flow around the body
Prevents blood from stagnating in the veins and blood pooling in the legs (thus avoiding fatigue to set in)
Studies carried out at a leading University for the study of ergonomics, make observations of the difference between standing on hard floors verses standing on soft floors. Both studies conclude that mats significantly affect fatigue and comfort in different body regions.
There is good reason to believe that reduction of fatigue also reduces the possibility of accidents and improves general worker efficiency. There are fewer lost
days to injuries, fewer medical claims, and compliance with new health and safety requirements and worker comfort recommendations. Lower limb disorder sicknesses on average total 25 days off per incident.
