Changing Room Mats

Unsurprisingly, school changing rooms are a high-risk area when it comes to slips, trips and falls and so the correct matting is essential to ensure that the area is safe for pupils and teachers alike. In changing rooms and showers, you should consider using open grid matting (matting containing holes) to protect areas that become a high risk when wet. Mats4U open grid, anti-slip matting allows water to drain away through the holes which means the surface remains perfect for providing traction underfoot, for a completely non-slip area.

In addition to having matting that prevents slips and falls, it should also have a surface area that is comfortable to walk on in bare feet. As well as comfort, it is important to consider a mat that can maintain high levels of hygiene, particularly in changing rooms where bare feet and water are both present. School changing room floors will often experience a high volume of footfall due to lessons taking place all day, five days a week so it’s important that the area is kept clean and as germ-free as possible. Mats4U provides matting that is treated with anti-microbial and anti-bacterial chemicals such as Heronrib and Ultima which are designed to prevent the spread of germs and infection – perfect for a changing room environment, particularly in a school where health and safety is of the utmost importance. These chemicals also disguise the inevitable odours that occur over time in school changing rooms ensuring that the area remains fresh throughout the day’s many PE and gym lessons.

What are changing room mats?

Changing room mats are specialised floor coverings designed for use in areas where individuals change clothing, such as gym locker rooms, swimming pool changing areas, and spa facilities. They serve to enhance safety, hygiene, and comfort in these environments.

What are the primary purposes of changing room mats?

Changing room mats serve several important purposes, including:

  • Providing a clean and slip-resistant surface for individuals to stand on while changing clothes.
  • Absorbing water and moisture to prevent slips, trips, and falls.
  • Protecting the underlying flooring from damage caused by water, dirt, and debris tracked in from outside.
  • Enhancing hygiene by creating a barrier between the floor and bare feet or footwear.

What types of changing room mats are available?

There are various types of changing room mats to choose from, including:

  • Rubber mats: Durable and water-resistant, rubber mats provide excellent traction and durability in high-traffic areas.
  • Vinyl mats: Vinyl mats offer a comfortable and slip-resistant surface while being easy to clean and maintain.
  • Absorbent mats: These mats feature materials such as microfiber or absorbent fabric to soak up water and moisture, keeping the area dry and safe.
  • Interlocking tiles: Interlocking tile systems allow for customizable coverage and easy installation in irregularly shaped or large changing areas.

How do I choose the right changing room mat for my needs?

Consider factors such as the size and layout of the changing area, the expected level of foot traffic, durability requirements, ease of cleaning, and any specific safety regulations that need to be followed. Choose mats that offer sufficient traction and absorbency for the intended use.

Are changing room mats easy to clean?
