Floor mats might seem like a minor detail, but they are a crucial investment for bars. Staff spend all day rushing around the place to look after guests. Rushing around with drinks and food is not only a safety concern, but it can also cause musculoskeletal disorders, which are one of the most common forms of work-related illness in the hospitality industry.
Our mats are anti-fatigue. They’re designed to reduce stress on the body when staff are doing their jobs. Often, staff are unable to wear comfortable, cushioned shoes as part of their uniform. These mats help staff to do their jobs comfortably and effectively.
Floor mats are important for a number of reasons. Not only do they make life a bit easier for staff, they reduce accidents and protect stock by protecting items when they fall. As they are made to endure constant footfall and heavy weight, they’re incredibly durable, so you won’t have to worry about replacing them for a long time.
The mats are also great for outdoor areas or parts of the bar that are likely to become slippery during service. You can have a floor consisting entirely of rubber mats if you wish, as our mats come in interlocking and bevelled edge forms. So, they can be placed in specific, oddly shaped corners, or across whole rooms.
Make sure that you don’t neglect this aspect of your bar setup. It will improve staff satisfaction and could prevent a lot of problems and save you money along the way!
