Different grades of rubber matting and flooring are used throughout many different sectors for an even wider range of applications. We supply rubber matting for industrial work areas, leisure centres and fitness areas, public buildings, offices and homes. Common applications of rubber matting and flooring are to create a non-slip and impact absorbing surface which also relieves muscular fatigue and improves circulation. Standing for long periods of time on hard floor surfaces causes muscular fatigue and constriction, which greatly reduces blood flow. In this situation the employees' heart is forced to work harder to pump blood through these constricted areas and his or her body begins to run out of energy. If a person is allowed to stand on a rubber mat, their muscles will subtly contract and expand as they adjust to the flexibility of the mat. This muscle movement increases blood-flow and increases the amount of oxygen reaching the heart, thus greatly reducing fatigue. Rubber mats are ideal for this purpose. By reducing an employees' energy consumption and easing fatigue, the user is able to carry out tasks for much longer periods.
