Did you know that bacteria can spread via footwear? This is an important factor to consider, especially in places where hygiene is paramount, such as hospitals, GP’s, pharmacies and other healthcare facilities.
Bacteria prevention in hospitals, doctor’s surgeries and care homes is vital. At Mats4U we have matting solutions that will help to ensure the safety of your patients and the cleanliness of your establishments. Not only do our range of mats provide traction to prevent the common problems of slippery floors and walkways, they also pick up bacteria underfoot that workers, patients and visitors will inevitably walk in from outside.
As well as this, we have our anti-fatigue mats range, which is the perfect hospital mat solution for those workers that are standing up for long periods of time. This particular type of hospital mat will help to alleviate the pressure that prolonged standing inflicts onto joints and muscles – something that is a common problem amongst hospital staff such as surgeons performing long surgeries
We want to help you ensure the safety of patients, staff and visitors. That’s why we supply a large selection mats suitable for medical applications. From anti-fatigue, to anti-microbial, our mats are proven to enhance health and safety in sensitive environments, reduce slippery wet floors, and to provide comfort to those required to stand for a long period of time.

Why hospital and medical mats are important
Hygiene: It’s important for hospitals, GP’s and other healthcare environments to remain sterile. However due to sick patients, these environments are exposed to viruses and bacteria that can be passed onto others. Floor matting can help to keep health standards up to scratch, avoid contamination and protect people from potential infections. Amongst other methods, deploying medical anti-microbial mats is a cost-effective approach to maintain a safe sterile environment.
Safety: At times, medical environments can experience slippery floors and walkways. This can pose as a threat to safety and increase slip and fall accidents. Most of our medical mats are made with an anti-slip surface to curve this issue, providing a safe walking surface.
Anti-Fatigue: Our medical and hospital mats also include an anti-fatigue range. Some staff members working in the medical field are constantly on their feet, or have to stand in one place for a long period of time, such as surgeons. Health issues can arise as a result of this, such as joint pains, muscle fatigue and other risks. To improve wellbeing of staff, anti-fatigue mats are the answer to these problems. Due to the cushioned surface, the mats can improve blood circulation, reduce pain, alleviate muscle fatigue and prevent serious health issues. We also have anti-fatigue mats which are autoclavable to keep the mats clean and hygienic after use in theatre for example.
Preventing cross-contamination in medical environments with anti-microbial mats
Hospitals and GP surgeries benefit from the use of an anti-microbial mat, as patients visiting these establishments are likely to have a weakened immune system, making them high risk for contracting bacteria, further illnesses or disease. Bacteria can be easily transferred from outside on shoes and spread onto the hospital floor, which could put vulnerable patients at risk. With an antibacterial floor mat, hospitals can minimise the risk of dangerous bacteria being spread throughout the hospital by stopping the dirt and germs in their tracks.
Types of Hospital and Medical
At Mats4U, we offer a variety of medical mats suited for different areas.
Tacky Mats for Hospitals
Tacky mats, also known as sticky mats, are designed with a removable adhesive later to capture fine dirt, dust and bacteria from footwear, wheeled traffic, or any other passing objects. Once the sticky layer has collected enough dirt and dust, it can be easily removed to reveal a new fresh layer.
Tacky mats are a great choice for hospitals and healthcare environments as great at protecting your facility against dirt and bacteria and help to prevent cross-contamination in sensitive areas. Take a look at our Clean Stride Adhesive Tack Mat and Frame.
Medical Anti-Fatigue Mats
Working in the medical profession can a lot of the time mean being on your feet all day, with long shifts. That’s why we offer Anti-Fatigue mats for use in medical environments. Designed to provide comfort to staff, improve work productivity and reduce serious injuries. We recommend the Cushion Station Anti-Fatigue Non-Slip Rubber Mat, which can also be autoclaved for cleaning and sterilising.
Surgical rooms and operating theatres are highly exposed to germs and bacteria. However, our surgical mats are made to prevent contamination and reduce fatigue for surgeons and nurses standing for long periods of time. Check out our Surgical Mats page here to find out more.
To keep unwanted germs out of hospital labs, we have a selection of lab mats that will protect the environment from contamination. For more information, feel free to check out our Lab Mats page here.
