Wet Area Matting & Wet Room Mats

Being present in an area exposed to water, chemicals or any sort of liquids can pose a threat to your health and safety. This can become a major slip-and-trip hazard, which also creates an unsafe environment for workers and members of the public. That is why we provide wet area matting to prevent slip, trip and fall accidents in environments prone to moisture.

If you have a business that is exposed to moisture or water such as a swimming pool, gym, spa or therapy centre, we have a range of wet area matting (also known as wet room mats) that will help to prevent slips, trips and falls. Floor matting for wet areas such as our wet room floor mats and wet floor mats are designed to provide traction and grip underfoot. Allowing liquids to flow away from the standing surface, to provide safe and non-slip flooring for wet areas with easy drainage.

The Importance of Matting for Wet Areas

Wet room mats or anti-slip mats for wet areas should be an essential part of any business’s health and safety precautions, especially if they include areas that are often wet or damp, as these areas can be prone to accidents. When offering services to the general public such as a swimming pool, gym or spa, it is important to ensure that all areas of the business are safe with wet area mats and this includes areas such as pool sides, changing rooms, saunas etc. - that can often become wet and may cause slips. According to HSE GOV, 40% of slips and trips can lead to major injuries. Having non-slip wet area mats that have been specially designed for wet areas, can minimise the risk of accidents both from employees and members of the public.

We have a range of wet area matting which can be used to prevent slip and fall accidents but also give you peace of mind that you are doing everything you can to protect those who work for you and those who are in or around your business premises.

What are the benefits of wet area matting?

  • Safety: Wet area mats provide traction to prevent slips and falls on wet surfaces.
  • Hygiene: They help to keep feet dry and clean, reducing the risk of slips as well as the spread of bacteria and fungi.
  • Comfort: These mats offer cushioning underfoot, making standing for extended periods more comfortable.
  • Protection: Wet area mats can protect underlying surfaces from damage caused by moisture and foot traffic.
  • Aesthetics: They come in various styles and colours, enhancing the visual appeal of wet environments.

What materials are commonly used in wet area matting?

  • Rubber: Rubber mats are durable, slip-resistant, and resistant to moisture and mildew.
  • Vinyl: Vinyl mats are lightweight, easy to clean, and provide good drainage.
  • PVC: PVC mats offer similar benefits to rubber and vinyl mats and are often more affordable.
  • Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR): TPR mats combine the durability of rubber with the flexibility of plastic.
  • Polypropylene: Polypropylene mats are resistant to moisture, chemicals, and UV radiation, making them suitable for outdoor use.


How do wet area mats enhance safety?

Wet area mats typically feature surface textures, patterns, or perforations that improve traction by increasing friction between the mat and footwear. Additionally, their drainage capabilities prevent water from pooling on the surface, reducing the risk of slipping.

Where can Wet Area Matting be placed?

Ultimately, wet area matting can be placed in areas where water or other liquids are present. Whether commercial or industrial, wet area mats are suitable for any industry. This includes:

  • Gyms and leisure centres
  • Food and drink handling areas, such as kitchens and bars
  • Swimming pools
  • Industrial manufacturing environments

 How do you clean wet area mats?

  • Regular Maintenance: Sweep or vacuum the mats regularly to remove dirt and debris.
  • Cleaning: Wash the mats with a mild detergent and water solution, then rinse thoroughly and allow them to air dry.
  • Disinfection: Periodically disinfect the mats to eliminate bacteria and fungi. Follow manufacturer guidelines for suitable disinfectants and procedures.
  • Deep Cleaning: For stubborn stains or buildup, use a scrub brush or pressure washer for a more thorough clean.

Can wet area mats be customised to fit specific spaces?

Yes, many manufacturers offer custom sizing options to accommodate various areas, including irregularly shaped spaces or areas with unique dimensions. Additionally, some mats can be easily trimmed or interconnected to fit specific layouts.

Types of Wet Area Matting

To meet the requirements for different locations, we offer various types of wet area matting for various areas as follows:

Are wet area mats suitable for outdoor use?

Yes, there are wet area mats specifically designed for outdoor use. These mats are typically made from durable materials that can withstand exposure to sunlight, moisture, and temperature fluctuations.

Are wet area mats eco-friendly?

Mats4U offers eco-friendly options made from recycled materials or materials that are recyclable themselves. Additionally, choosing durable mats that require less frequent replacement can help reduce environmental impact.

How do you install wet area mats?

Installation methods vary depending on the type of mat and the surface it will be placed on. Some mats come with adhesive backing for simple peel-and-stick installation, while others may require additional fasteners or adhesives. Follow Mats4U instructions for proper installation procedures.

Barefoot & Swimming Pool Wet Area Matting

Some wet area matting solutions, such as Heronrib and Ultima wet area mats are also comfortable for walking barefoot, as well as having an anti-bacterial treatment.

These types of mats are suitable in areas such as swimming pools, waterparks, changing rooms and leisure centres. Due to the smooth surface, this delivers comfort underfoot whilst providing traction to prevent slipping and falling. To contribute further to health and safety, our Barefoot Wet Area Mats contain anti-bacterial properties to stop the growth of fungi and prevent odours.

Chemical, Grease and Oil Resistant Wet Area Matting

When working in an environment exposed to chemicals, grease and oils, it’s important to use matting resistant to these liquids, to not only prevent slip accidents but to stop the matting from breaking down due to exposure to the chemicals. You can even use matting with drainage holes to allow these substances to pass through and away from the standing surface, without harming the matting material. We recommend checking out our chemical compatibility chart to ensure you have the right mat for your environment.

Anti-Fatigue Wet Area Matting

Our anti-fatigue wet area mats are suitable for areas where liquids are present, and when workers are required to stand up for a long period of time. This could be in a kitchen, behind a bar, or on a car production line for example.  Designed to alleviate stress from muscles and prevent serious health issues, our Anti-Fatigue Wet Area Matting performs well in all industrial settings.

Superior Water Drainage

Designed to handle excess moisture and water accumulation, our wet area mats feature strategic perforation or raised patterns that allow water to drain through effectively. By preventing water pooling, these mats help maintain a dry and slip-free surface, even in the most water-prone environment.

Slip-Resistant Safety

Our wet area matting is engineered with slip-resistant properties, providing an extra layer of safety in wet and slippery conditions. With their specialised surface patterns and textures, these mats significantly reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls, ensuring a secure footing.
