Here at First Mats, we have an extensive selection of wet room matting ideal for Wudu/ Ablution areas in Mosques and other spiritual sites. The outstanding water drainage, anti-slip properties and anti-bacterial hygienic surfaces of our Wudu mats allow any Mosque to keep hygiene and safety levels high - a must for the holy cleansing of Wudu.
A Wudu/Ablution area is a dedicated space for performing ritual cleansing before Muslim prayer. This cleansing is known as ‘wudu’ or ‘ablution’, and involves washing the hands, face, arms and feet. It is an integral part of the Islamic faith, and its importance comes from the fact that it prepares the worshipper to be in the presence of Allah in a clean state.
An ablution/wudu washroom typically consists of an open square washroom with a drain in the middle and taps on each side of the room. The mats are used in the centre of the room to help drainage and stop any loose water-causing slipping hazards.
Although not mandatory for Wudu/Ablution, the main benefit of wet room matting is to keep your floors safe, hygienic and moisture free – all critical factors in any public environment, including places of worship. Our entire wet room matting range is fully water resistant with anti-bacterial surfaces, and can be loose-laid on any floor or surface without any prior installation required.
