Introducing RedStop™ by Notrax®

A New Technology that Prevents the Slipping and Sliding of Mats


Following a period of intense research and development, Notrax® is proud to introduce RedStop™ slip-resistant backing, a uniquely engineered technology that virtually eliminates the slipping and sliding of all Notrax® brand laminated floor mats.

Shifting of mats can occur when a user steps on it. The same can happen when pivoting or movement is required for the application. Smaller sized floor mats placed at work cell or individual station environments have a tendency to move more than larger mats of which the weight is mostly significant enough to keep it in place.

Introducing BrilliantStep™ Brush Logo Mat

Custom printed brush logo mat


Notrax 196 BrilliantStep Brush Logo Mat - Outdoor Printed Logo Scraper MatAfter more than a year of intense research and development, Notrax® is proud to introduce the Notrax® 196 BrilliantStep™ Brush logo mat, a custom-printed brush entrance mat for indoor and outdoor use. This high quality multi-functional dust control mat not only scrapes and cleans shoes, to prevent dirt and moisture getting tracked in to facilities; it also provides an excellent opportunity to promote a brand or company name because most people primarily look to the floor.

What makes the BrilliantStep™ Brush unique is the custom printing possibility.  Most outdoor logo mats are sewn in or manufactured using an inlaid logo process where the logo is custom cut from the same material and inlaid within the mat.  This does not allow for fine lines, shading or 3D effects. This labour intensive process not only limits the design possibilities, but also creates a large amount of waste, thereby increasing the cost of the mat.


Introducing Master Flex™ by Notrax®

Introducing the revolutionary modular multi-zone entrance matting system - Design-driven Innovation


The new Master Flex™ design blends the functionalities of a multi zone entrance matting system with the ease of on-site modular installation into an effective and ingenious matting solution.

The large quality carpet mat inserts in a variety of colors easily coordinate with the aesthetics of the building and interior design while providing excellent absorption of moisture to dry shoes and prevent slips and falls.

The Master Flex™ entrance matting system offers all the benefits of a matting tile that is easily installed, rearranged or replaced. Its unique interlocking system creates a durable and seamless connection that can be effortlessly installed by hand. The 50 cm x 50 cm tiles cover sizeable areas easily and can be assembled on-site for installation in recessed matwell frames in large entrances. Made from a durable natural rubber compound that is inherently resilient, anti-slip and withstands the heaviest foot traffic. The mat has excellent adherence and adapts to any surface while the raised studs underneath allow water to drain through, keeping the surface clean and dry.
