According to the National Floor Safety Institute, 22 percent of workplace slip and fall incidents result in up to 31 days of missed work. Commercial kitchens and other food-processing facilities are especially ripe for accidents due to spilled water, dropped food debris or oil and grease.
In addition, regulations require restaurants and other food-industry facilities to maintain strict floor cleaning protocols, creating another potential for slippery conditions.
Deploying kitchen floor mats can not only mitigate slip-and-fall risks, but also provide anti-fatigue comfort to workers who must stand for long periods of time. NoTrax® mats for kitchen floors can handle more intensive cleanings without breaking down as quickly, keeping your employees safe and your food-service business running smoothly.

Raised Interlocking Drainage Mat Ultramat®
A lightweight, modular, anti-fatigue mat system, Ultramat features molded-in mat connectors for easy on-site custom configurations and longer lengths. Its anti-slip surface area maximizes traction in wet or greasy areas while its multi-nib backing provides anti-fatigue support of the mat.
As liquids cover the floor throughout the day, Ultramat’s large hole design provides next-level drainage that diverts liquids and debris away the worker’s standing area platform. Ultramat is constructed of lightweight, general-purpose rubber making it easy to handle.
Red Interlocking Drainage Mat Ultramat® Max
The name says it all, Ultramat® Max is the more rugged big brother to the Ultramat. Constructed of a resilient rubber compound, Ultramat Max is for heavy duty use and sports greater resistance to grease and oils. Molded-in mat connectors allow for simple configurations for any floor area. Offering the same superior drainage and anti-fatigue benefits of its little brother, Ultramat Max also has an available beveled ramp system to reduce trip hazards, allowing for easy access. Finally, Ultramat Max is manufactured with MicroStop anti-microbial rubber compound (in red only).

Its drainage system helps whisk away liquids and debris from the work area while molded-in beveled edges reduce tripping hazards.
