by Brianna Crandall — May 8, 2017 — New Pig Corporation, the brand that helps workplaces manage leaks, drips and spills to create safer, cleaner and more productive environments, now offers a line of Pig Grippy Floor Mats to help facilities improve floor safety and maintenance and cut potential liability claims and costs dramatically.
The Grippy Floor Mat is pitched as the world’s first adhesive-backed absorbent mat. Unlike standard carpeted or rubber-backed floor mats that become trip hazards, Grippy Mat won’t bunch up, flip over or shift around. NFSI Certified as a high-traction surface, it helps reduce slip-and-fall claims by as much as 90 percent when used as part of a floor safety program, claims the company.
Tim McMillen, New Pig product manager, stated:
Placing this mat in wet, slippery or fall-prone areas helps eliminate trip, slip and fall accidents. It’s not going to budge, and it’s easy to clean, too. Sweep, vacuum or scrub — it stays in place during routine floor scrubbing or buffing.
Constructed with a durable, absorbent top layer, a middle liquid-proof barrier layer to keep liquids from passing through to the floor, and a repositionable adhesive bottom layer, Grippy Mat keeps floors dry and safe and can stay down for up to 12 weeks before changeout. Engineered fibers absorb and evenly distribute moisture throughout the mat to prevent surface puddles and minimize tracking. The ultra-thin material can be custom cut to any length or shape desired, which creates a neater, more attractive facility environment. And, rental mat users can save over 50% annually in rental program costs by switching to Grippy Floor Mat.
Grippy Floor Mat adheres tightly to nearly all floor surfaces, but peels up easily, making mat relocation or replacement quick and easy, says the company. Tough enough for heavy-duty walk-on and wheeled traffic, it is designed to not rip, shred or fray. Grippy Mats are available in rolls of 100′ or 50′ and can be easily installed to provide continuous coverage on floors with no gaps between mats, adds the company.
