For more than 15 years, the NFSI has researched testing for slip resistance in order to develop its current, comprehensive evaluation process,” said Russell Kendzior, president, NFSI. “Mats certified as high traction offer greater slip resistance to meet safety regulations.”

The ANSI/NFSI B101.6-2012 “Standard Guide For Commercial Entrance Matting In Reducing Slips, Trips And Falls” recommends that mats have a “high-traction backing” in order to reduce movement, which can lead to issues such as buckling and curling.

The Traffic Mat features a heavier weight rubber backing with tire-grip technology. This backing provides high traction to help the mat withstand foot, wheel and cart traffic. The mat is well suited for high-traffic areas within facilities such as airports, hotels, supermarkets and hospitals.

“Placing durable mats in heavily trafficked areas is essential for prolonging the life of costly floor assets and maintaining cleanliness and safety,” said John Engel, Director of Marketing, Cintas. “The Traffic Mat is designed to handle frequent abuse from shoes and suitcase and cart wheels, making it a great option for a wide range of facilities.”
