Classified as 'Hollow Rubber Mats' these 1m x 1.5m x 22mm thick mats have a variety of uses including:
Anti-Poaching Mats - especially useful for gateways, around feeders and water troughs* See our HEAVY DUTY GRASS REINFORCEMENT MESH FOR GATEWAYS as a tougher alternative - and more economical for 2 or more gateways!
Walkway Mats - used on both hard and soft surfaces for a good anti-slip walking surface
Anti-Fatigue Mats - relieves muscle stress when standing in hard surfaces for period of time
Play Mats - up to 3.5m fall height to BS EN1177:2008 when laid onto grass (tests and certification can be offered at your particular site - please call for costs) - copy of our test report and certificate on application.
Dirt Collection Mats - suitable for door entrance mats
Washdown Mats - laid onto drainage medium, these mats allow water to pass straight through while offering a safe, non-slip floor surface.
Caravan Mats - these mats can be easily rolled up to transport and are perfect for door mats, or under awnings around your caravan !
The mats are normally fixed together using cable ties, of for temporary fixing when laid onto solid floors, a special moulded rubber connector is also available. Plastic fixing pins are used where the mats need to be anchored to grass which quickly grows through the 25-30mm holes in the mats.
The mats can be back-filled with pea-shingle, bark, sand etc to provide access for wheelchairs when laid onto soft areas.
When laid onto soft areas, or where light vehicle use is also expected, we can also supply an underlay mesh offering weight support and minimising the effect of mats being compressed into wet soil which can result in rubber mats tearing.
Typically where these mats are used with horses for anti-poaching in gateways etc, please refer to our information on Heavy Duty Mesh products, which are often used in conjunction with rubber mats to create higher strength and better weight supporting areas.
Material: 100% Natural Rubber and Synthetic Rubber Blend with recycled content (carbon black) for environmental purposes.
TESTING - 25.2.2014 - OUR MATS HAVE NOW PASSED THE BS EN 1177:2008 TESTING BY SMITHERS RAPRA (CTR NUMBER 56666) FOR A CRITICAL FALL HEIGHT OF UP TO 3.5M LAID ONTO A NON-ENGINEERED (IE GRASS) SURFACE.

Derived Critical Fall Height
Test Result Individual Values (m)
CFH, m 3.5
NB: The maximum HIC value for an acceptable level of injury prevention is taken to be 1000. The resultant Critical Fall Height for the sample is determined as the lowest figure obtained within the series of the tests as undertaken rounded down to the nearest 100mm.
The CFH for the sample submitted in this work was found to be 3.5 meters when tested against a grass sub-base. This test was carried out under the particular climatic and site conditions occurring on the day of the test. The results shall therefore not be treated as reproducible to the same standard that can be acheived in a laboratory test.
