Tacky Mats & Sticky Tack Mats - Sticky Entrance Mats & Sticky Floor Mats

What are Tacky Mats?

Tacky mats (tack mats), also known as sticky mats, are different compared to your standard mats. They are specially designed mats with a removable sticky, adhesive layer to capture dust and dirt from footwear, wheeled traffic, and other passing objects upon entry. Designed to prevent the transfer of dirt into sanitary environments, tack mats are ideal in areas where hygiene is paramount, such as factories, computer rooms, clean rooms, warehouses, school gymnasiums, and healthcare facilities.  If you have a business that requires certain areas to be free from dirt and dust, tacky floor mats may be the perfect commercial matting solution for you. Speak to our experts today about our range of tack mats, sticky mats, and tacky floor mats.

To effectively remove dirt and dust particles from underfoot, tacky mats have a sticky layer that collects and holds on to even the smallest piece of dirt. This stops it from being transferred into areas that must be kept clean by using them as sticky entrance mats or as standard sticky floor mats. Our Clean Stride adhesive tacky mats have multiple, replaceable layers, unlike other sticky door mats that can then be peeled away and disposed of once they are used, to reveal a fresh sticky tack mat layer to continue effective dust removal. Each removable sheet eliminates even the finest piece of dirt, guaranteeing contamination is stopped from being transferred into sensitive areas.

We also offer dual tacky mats, which are combined with our best-selling entrance mat, the Waterhog Classic. This is designed so that the Waterhog removes any heavy dirt and moisture, followed by the adhesive layer of the tacky mat which grabs remaining dirt and dust particles.  

Why are Tacky Mats important?

Removing contaminated particles is crucial in order to keep the facility sterile. When using a standard mat, there may be small traces of fine dirt remaining on footwear or other objects.  However, the sticky layer captures dirt as soon it comes into contact with the layer. Contaminated particles are then left behind on the mat until ready to be disposed of. Once a sheet is dirty, remove the layer to reveal a new clean sheet underneath.

How do tacky mats work?

Tacky mats work by utilising a sticky surface that effectively captures dirt, dust, and other particles. When someone steps on the mat, the adhesive surface removes particles from the bottom of their shoes or wheels, preventing them from being tracked into clean areas.

What are tacky mats made of?

Tacky mats typically consist of multiple layers of adhesive-coated polyethylene sheets. The adhesive layers are designed to be strong enough to trap contaminants but not so sticky that they leave residue on footwear or wheels.

How do you install tacky mats?

Tacky mats are usually placed in entrances or transition areas between clean and dirty zones. To install them, simply peel off the protective film on the bottom layer to expose the adhesive surface, then place the mat on a clean, dry floor. Once the mat becomes saturated with contaminants, simply peel off the dirty layer to expose a fresh adhesive layer underneath.

How long do tacky mats last?

The lifespan of tacky mats depends on various factors such as the amount of foot traffic, the type of contaminants, and the environmental conditions. Generally, tacky mats can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks before needing replacement. Regular monitoring and replacement of saturated layers are essential to maintain their effectiveness.

Are tacky mats environmentally friendly?

Tacky mats are typically disposed of after use, and the adhesive layers may contain chemicals that could impact the environment if not properly handled. However, some manufacturers offer eco-friendly options made from recycled materials or biodegradable adhesives. It's essential to check the product specifications and disposal instructions to ensure proper environmental stewardship.

Are tacky mats safe to use?

Tacky mats are generally safe to use when handled properly. However, it's essential to follow the manufacturer's instructions and safety guidelines to prevent accidents or injuries. Users should be cautious when walking on tacky mats to avoid slipping, especially if the surface is wet or heavily soiled.

Where can Tacky Mats be placed?

The healthcare and food industry can benefit from cleanroom tacky mats as they are highly effective at preventing contamination and help to ensure areas are free from dust and dirt that may otherwise contaminate products or sanitary areas. Tacky mats or Sticky Mats are ideal for any hygiene or dust-sensitive environments such as:  

  • Laboratories
  • Hospitals
  • Medical facilities
  • Pharmacies
  • Manufacturing sites
  • Clean rooms
