The correct industrial matting plays an important role in keeping workers safe and productive.
We provide industrial matting solutions to clients across many different industries. This includes everything from oil and chemical resistant anti-slip and drainage matting to electrical rubber safety matting that protects industrial workers from electric shocks.
Here, we explain the many kinds of industrial rubber matting that exist, their uses and how they could help you.
Industrial Electrical Safety Matting
Electrical safety mats are one of the most common forms of industrial matting and are designed to prevent electric shocks. They’re used when working on switchboard apparatus and are essential to worker safety. We provide rubber electric safety matting to a range of industries, including oil and gas, and shipping.
Tested to a range of voltages, our extensive industrial rubber matting offering is the perfect solution that meets the most rigorous health and safety standards.
Industrial Anti-Static Matting
Almost all industries have employees who routinely work around electronic materials and components. For these workers, minor shocks from static build up are a real risk. Anti-static matting is an essential part of keeping them safe.
It’s not just about preventing shocks either. Sparks from static can cause large fires, so anti-static matting helps to reduce this risk to your business.
In addition, our anti-static mats also often have anti-fatigue properties. It means that they also have an important role to play in the wellness of your employees – which is also one of the keys to increasing productivity.
Industrial Anti-Slip Matting
Slips are one of the most common causes of injury in the workplace. Anti-slip rubber matting is essential in any industrial work environment where liquids such as oil can cause slips.
At MatsDirect we offer a wide selection of anti-slip matting, including multi-directional grip solutions that make it easier to work safely.
Many of our anti-slip rubber matting customers are in the oil and gas industry, a sector where health and safety is paramount. In these oily and wet environments, anti-slip matting (combined with other options such as drainage matting) is essential.
It is a popular solution across other industries too, such as shipping. The decks of boats become very slippery, and anti-slip industrial matting is an essential part of keeping workers safe.
Industrial Interlocking Flooring Tiles
Another versatile anti-slip solution is interlocking anti-slip flooring tiles. We supply these either as a permanent or temporary flooring option for many of our clients across a range of industries, who value their oil, chemical and grease resistant properties.
Industrial Anti-Fatigue Matting
At MatsDirect we also offer a selection of innovative anti-fatigue matting solutions. These help you to improve employee health and productivity through an effective and easy to maintain flooring solution in PVC or rubber.
Hard flooring can be tiring on the legs. To alleviate this, anti-fatigue matting works by encouraging small movements that increase blood flow. That means fewer aches and pains, fewer sick days – and a happier, healthier workforce.

Industrial Drainage Tiles and Matting
Using industrial rubber or PVC drainage tiles in areas where there is a slip hazard is an excellent way to create a safer environment for your workers. Depending on your needs, there are various designs and materials to choose from, with a wide variety of drainage options.
