As the first defence against slip accidents on wet floors, changing room mats are essential to any establishment's safety and hygiene protocols. Designed with clever water drainage features, slip-resistant materials, and long-lasting wear and water resistance, changing room mats considerably raise the levels of safety and reduce the risk of accidents and potential injury claims.
Proper matting is critical to maintaining a safe and secure environment in wet and leisure areas. In addition to enhancing safety, Changing Room Mats and Flooring also provide insulation against hard, gritty flooring and tiles found in changing rooms, creating a soft and comfortable surface ideal for bare feet while ensuring excellent traction for visitors.
Changing Room Matting is often found in commercial leisure centres, gyms, hotels, and private pools. These high-traffic areas require durable and reliable matting to reduce the risk of slip accidents for guests on wet floors.
Changing room mats are commonly found in the changing rooms of swimming pools, sports clubs, and locker rooms, where water accumulation is frequent. We highly recommend positioning your mats near showers, lockers, and cubicles to maximise safety and hygiene.
In addition to providing slip resistance and water drainage, our changing room mats offer superior comfort, making them ideal for barefoot areas. Whether you're operating a commercial facility or a private pool, investing in quality changing room mats is essential for the safety and satisfaction of your guests.
Our changing room mats boast an array of distinctive key features and benefits, such as;
Slip Resistance - Slips, trips, and falls can prove hazardous, especially in wet and slippery environments. Fortunately, our changing room mats have outstanding slip resistance and underfoot traction, ensuring excellent health and safety practices.
Comfortable on Feet - Our changing room mats are designed to provide the most comfortable flooring surface possible, delivering a safe balance between grip and comfort for the users.
Easy to Install - Little to no assembly is required – simply connect the tiles piece by piece with the corresponding edges, or place and position the mat accordingly for mating rolls. Mats can easily be lifted and moved to other locations whenever needed.
Easy maintenance and storage - Changing room matting is easy to maintain and store away, perfect for high-volume busy places with sustained foot traffic levels. This saves time for cleaning and maintains a high level of hygiene.
Available in custom sizes and tiles - Many changing room mats are limited by size or colour, meaning they are only suitable for use in a few facilities. Our wide variety of changing room mats are designed to be universal for any recreational changing room or locker room, with custom sizes, lengths and modular tiles available to cater to your needs, plus a spectrum of colours to suit surrounding colour schemes.
Promotes good hygiene - With changing room mats in place around the changing room, any unwanted substances will fall through the gaps and be contained within the mat - preventing cross-contamination between interconnecting corridors and rooms. Our mats also feature an anti-microbial coating reducing the amount of damp-loving fungus and bacteria.
For changing rooms linked to swimming pools and other wet areas, we have a specialised selection of Swimming Pool Mats. These include our AquaDeck Wet Room Shower Tiles, the AquaStep Changing Room Mat, and our SlipProtect Slatted Wet Room Mats.
