Weld-Diamond Anti Fatigue Welding Mat

Welding is a tough, hard and sometimes dangerous job. That's why employers should take every precaution possible to improve comfort for welders as this will lead to a safer and more productive working environment. Fortunately, our Weld-Diamond Anti-Fatigue mats are perfect for such a task.

Designed for heavy-duty industrial applications and featuring a flame retardant diamond tread surface, this mat is an ideal choice for welding bays and other demanding industrial uses.

What are Anti-Fatigue Welding Mats?

Anti-Fatigue Mats are designed to improve comfort for workers who stand on their feet for long periods of the day. Unlike in most other industrial areas, welders work with sparks and naked flames which their mats and other safety equipment need to be able to repel to avoid fires.

Welding Mats offer all of the health benefits of regular anti-fatigue matting matting with the added benefit of being fire resistant.

Benefits of Using Anti-Fatigue Welding Mats

The benefits of using Welding Mats extends much further than simply making welders feel more comfortable. Anti-Fatigue matting is proven to reduce workplace injuries and absenteeism whilst boosting staff morale and productivity.

  • Reduce risk of slips on floors
  • Improve comfort and morale for workers
  • Reduce absenteeism and injuries
  • Reduce fire risk in welding bays
  • Save money by reducing downtime

 

Fire Resistance Testing

Many welding mats state that they are fire resistant, but the Weld-Diamond is fire tested to BS EN 13501-1:2002 with a classification of Cfl-s1. The test establishes at what level radiation energy in kW/m2 the flames extinguish.

  • 4.5 kW/m2 is the minimum value for class Cfl-s1
  • The value determined for vertical flame spread must not exceed Fs< 150 mm within 20 seconds. 

Additional Product Rating Scores

In addition to the fire safety classification, the Weld-Diamond is scored on three categories to measure how it performs for anti-fatigue, slip resistance and wear resistance.

Anti Fatigue Anti-Fatigue - 2/3 This mat offers Very Good anti-fatigue properties. This is measured by ASTM D3547 which records the compression and decompression of the mat. The higher the rating the better its anti fatigue qualities.
Slip Resistance Slip Resistance - 2/3 This mat provides Very Good slip resistance. This is measured by ASTM C1028-89 & DIN-E-51130, 51097 which tests the force required to cause slippage of a load across the mat. The higher the rating the higher the slip resistance.
Wear Resistance Wear Resistance - 3/3 This mat offers Excellent resistance to wear. This is measured by ASTM D3844-92 which subjects the mat to 5000 cycles under an abrasive wheel. The higher the rating the longer the life span of the mat.
Fire Retardant Fire Tested This mat carries a Flame Retardancy Certificate. Please ensure this is suitable for your environment. 

 

What are the Welding Mats made from?

Our Anti-Fatigue Welding mats provide comfort and safety through a carefully chosen combination of materials. The high-density foam backing delivers a comfortable surface to stand on, providing anti-fatigue benefits for workers, whilst the solid PVC surface repels sparks and flames for fire safety.

The fire resistant surface surrounds the welding mat, reducing the risk of tripping on the edges.
