Rubber Mats Rubber Mats for Bars, Dishwash Areas and Commercial Kitchens Rubber mats are essential in restaurants, bars and commercial kitchens. Having rubber mating both protects against trips and falls in wet areas but also keeps workers more comfortable on long shifts stood on their feet.Drainage holes in the mats mean any spilt drinks or water from a dishwasher are dispersed underneath the mat leaving a dry surface for staff to walk on. Slips on wet floors are a major hazard in many work areas of a restaurant and kitchen which can be costly to both staff and owners. A good mat system is crucial.Happy staff means happy customers which in turn means a profitable business. People who work in catering are often on their feet for long hours. No one can be happy with cold wet feet. Rubber mats as well as keeping people’s feet dry are also cushioning to walk on helping to reduce fatigue from hours standing.Grease resistant mating is essential in food preparation areas especially behind cook stations with griddles, fryers and other cooking equipment where cooking fats can end up on the floor. It’s also a good idea to have in front of the pass where waiting staff are to guard against drops and spills.Cooksmills range of rubber mats can be seen 7 days a week in our Manchester store or bought online.
