Rubber Backed Door Mats

Door Mats are usually made with either PVC, Vinyl or Rubber Backings. The advantages of Rubber Backed Door Mats are that they are hard wearing and offer excellent anti-slip properties.

Rubber is a heavier material than Vinyl, which helps to reduce the chances of the mat moving on the floor. This is aided further by the fact that Rubber mats can also feature a bobbled or other textured under surface making it even better at gripping the floor. Rubber is also very flexible and durable meaning that you can expect a longer life span from a rubber backed door mat than one made with Vinyl or PVC, especially in areas with high volumes of foot traffic.

Choosing the right mat can be difficult, so we have created this list of our top Rubber Backed Door Mats to make the process easier for you.

Super Absorbent Rubber Backed Door Mat - AquaProtect

AquaProtect Door Mat

Our AquaProtect mat can hold an impressive 6 litres of water per square metre, making it our most water absorbent mat available. It is ideal for premises where water being bought into the building on feet is a problem and is suitable for medium to high volumes of foot traffic.

The Rubber backing on this mat is raised slightly allowing mopped floors to dry underneath rather than having to wait for the area to dry, ideal in places with regular foot traffic.

100% Rubber Door Mat - DirtTrap

DirtTrap Rubber Entrance Mat

If you don’t feel that a rubber backed mat is right for you but still want the benefits they bring, why not consider a 100% Rubber Mat? Our DirtTrap mat is made from natural rubber and features a pattern of raised fingers that effectively scrape dirt and stones from shoes.

This mat can be used both indoor and outdoor, but we recommend using it outside with a separate indoor mat as rubber is not an absorbent material so won’t offer much protection against water intrusion alone. It is however available from £21.00 in four standard sizes to cover most standard doorways.
