“The Safety Message Mats stand apart because they still function as a high performance matting system, but at the same time clearly communicate safety messages”
“There is no other product in the industry like these mats,” said Mike Andersen, manager at leading mat manufacturer The Andersen Company, who partnered with MySafetySign to design the products. “It is the first time that signs have been incorporated into floor mats.”
The mats are made from a solid rubber base, with plastic polymeric safety signs such as Caution, Do Not Block, or Authorized Personnel Only molded into the rubber. Each mat features a bi-level construction, with a top rubber surface that filters dirt through to the nitrile rubber base, which withstands traffic and wear. A rubber water dam border traps water, debris, and moisture within.
“The Safety Message Mats stand apart because they still function as a high performance matting system, but at the same time clearly communicate safety messages,” said Andersen. “They are an essential part of any floor care system.”
