Visual difference between the 1/4" & 3/8" slip resistant matting
3/8" Thick Heavy Traffic Mats
The 3/8" thick heavy traffic matting is for areas with consistent foot traffic. The extra thickness provides more cushion and comfort underfoot along with added longevity. If your project is in an area that has daily, or frequent use, or if people are standing on this area for extended periods then the Heavy Traffic mats are ideal.
1/4" Thick Lightweight Mats

Slip Resistant Matting Applications
Pool decking and the area surrounding a pool are notorious for becoming wet and slippery with use. These slick pool-side surfaces can become a potential falling hazard for pedestrians and are why many of our clients are using slip resistant matting to provide underfoot stability for pool guests.
Both the 1/4" lightweight and 3/8" heavy traffic matting are used for pools and aquatic centers depending on the use case. Many residential pools will use the lightweight mats
The lightweight matting is also commonly used in locker rooms and showers.

Green non-slip matting golf courses, bridges, and country clubs
Our matting was originally used to support golf courses and provide clubs and facilities stable walking paths for their patrons and guests even when wet. When clubs started to ban metal spikes on their courses in order to preserve wooden walking bridges and stairs from damage there was an unintentional increase in slips and falling injuries. Because of this the non-slip mats were introduced to help increase stability and safety out on the links. There are more than 2,000 courses worldwide using our technology.
All matting is UV stabilized and able to withstand the elements and extreme temperature swings. The durable 3/8" construction of the heavy traffic mats supports both pedestrian and golf cart traffic.
Additionally the mats dampen and reduce golf ball bounce.
Docks and marinas become slick when wet and pose a potential slipping hazard for those entering and exiting watercraft. These slip resistant poly vinyl mesh matting is applied directly to the dock to increase stability and traction of boaters and their guests. Each
The looped "Spaghetti" mesh design provides great underfoot traction. These units assist in preventing slips and falls over slick marine surfacing.

Non-Slip Matting - Vinyl Loop Matting
non-slip matting is useful in many areas where people are prone to fall and slip. the following discusses more about the use of these types of mats
Non-slip matting, also known as anti-slip matting or slip-resistant matting, is a type of floor covering that is designed to provide a secure and stable surface for people to walk on. Non-slip matting is typically made of rubber or a rubber-like material like PVC, and it is used in a variety of settings, including commercial and industrial environments, as well as residential spaces.
Non-slip matting is designed to reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls, which can be caused by a variety of factors, including wet or slippery surfaces, uneven surfaces, or changes in elevation. Non-slip matting is often used in areas where there is a higher risk of falls, such as in kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways, or in areas where there is a high volume of foot traffic.
Polyvinyl loop matting, also known as vinyl loop matting or carpet tile, is a type of flooring material that is commonly used in commercial and industrial settings. It is made of a durable, synthetic material called polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is known for its resistance to wear, moisture, and stains.
One of the main benefits of polyvinyl loop matting is its ability to trap dirt and moisture, making it an effective choice for use in areas that may be prone to spills or wet conditions. The loops on the surface of the matting are designed to capture dirt and debris, which can be easily removed by vacuuming or shaking out the mat.
Polyvinyl loop matting is also resistant to fading and discoloration, making it a good choice for areas that are exposed to sunlight or other sources of UV light. It is also easy to clean and maintain, requiring only regular vacuuming or mopping to keep it looking fresh and new.
In addition to its practical benefits, polyvinyl loop matting is also available in a wide range of colors and patterns, allowing it to be used as a decorative element in a space. It can be used in a variety of settings, including offices, schools, hospitals, and retail stores.
Overall, polyvinyl loop matting is a durable, practical, and versatile flooring material that is well-suited for use in a variety of settings. It is easy to maintain and can help to keep floors clean and dry, making it a popular choice for commercial and industrial environments.
