Restaurant Floor Matting: Safety First, Comfort Second

Getting quality kitchen floor matting isn’t only a staff comfort issue; it’s an important safety issue as well. Kitchen floor matting is made from a rubberized material and can be placed anywhere in your kitchen where staff stands while working, including on the line, in front of the dishwasher, behind the bar, and in front of sinks.

Floor matting is great for safety because, as anybody who has worked in a kitchen knows, floors become wet and greasy very quickly, no matter how recently you cleaned.Commercial kitchen floor matting is anti-slip even when greasy or wet.

The best thing about it is your staff will love you for putting down floor matting because it’s so much more comfortable to stand on than concrete

Cloud matting brings an extra level of comfort to whoever gets to stand on it, and is almost a requirement for staff who stand in the same place all day while they work.  Cloud matting is also slip resistant and anti-microbial and is the best in comfort and safety.

Over time your kitchen floor matting will wear from constant use. You should replace your matting if it has begun to tear, or if it’s become very thin. No matter what, maintaining good floor matting in your kitchen and bar is very important for staff safety and comfort, so make sure you keep good matting down at all times in your restaurant.
