Lab Mats

Keeping containments such as bacteria and germs out of a lab is paramount. From hospital laboratories to science centres or industrial labs, we have a mat that will work for you.

Keep out unwanted germs, dirt and bacteria with our anti-microbial and anti-bacterial mats. Our anti-microbial mats are treated with an anti-microbial formula that kills and controls micro-organisms and odour. 

Anti-microbial and anti-bacterial tread mats to help prevent contamination and the spreading of germs and bacteria in surgery rooms and theatres. Tacky mats are also ideal for use in laboratories, as they remove fine particles of dirt and dust from footwear as they are walked over so that it is not carried into the laboratory or clean room. The germ and bacteria killing additive contained within the mat will last for the mat's lifetime and does not lessen with cleaning.

Made from a rubber frame and a replaceable adhesive surface, this mat can remove over 90% of fine dust and dirt particles with just two steps.

For laboratory technicians, who must stand for long periods of time, lab anti-fatigue mats are the answer. Anti-fatigue mats have ergonomic features to provide a comfortable standing surface for workers, to prevent fatigue and muscular aches and pains. Anti-fatigue matting is also available with non-slip properties with flow-through holes so that any liquids will fall away from the standing surface, preventing slips, trips and falls.

As a leading supplier of high-performance matting, all our lab mats are designed to provide a comfortable, safe, hygienic and practical working environment. All our mats are easy to clean either in a washing machine, with a pressure hose, a vacuum cleaner or carpet cleaner. 

What are lab mats?

Lab mats are specialised protective surfaces used in laboratories to safeguard workspaces, prevent contamination, and provide a stable surface for various lab procedures.

What materials are lab mats typically made of?

Lab mats are commonly made of durable materials such as silicone, rubber, or PVC. These materials are resistant to chemicals, heat, and spills commonly encountered in laboratory environments.

What are the primary functions of lab mats?

  • Surface Protection: Lab mats protect laboratory benches and surfaces from scratches, spills, and damage caused by chemicals or equipment.
  • Chemical Resistance: Lab mats offer resistance to a wide range of chemicals, preventing corrosion and damage to underlying surfaces.
  • Contamination Prevention: They provide a clean and sterile work area, minimising the risk of contamination during experiments or procedures.
  • Stability: Lab mats offer a stable surface for equipment such as beakers, flasks, and centrifuges, reducing the risk of spills or accidents.

4. What types of lab mats are available?

  • General-Purpose Mats: These mats provide basic protection and are suitable for a wide range of laboratory applications.
  • Anti-Slip Mats: Designed with textured surfaces to prevent equipment and containers from slipping during use.
  • Chemical-Resistant Mats: These mats offer enhanced resistance to chemicals, acids, and solvents commonly used in laboratory work.
  • Heat-Resistant Mats: Heat-resistant lab mats are designed to withstand high temperatures, making them suitable for applications involving hot equipment or processes.

Are lab mats reusable?

Yes, many lab mats are reusable and can be cleaned and sterilised between uses. However, it's essential to follow manufacturer instructions for proper cleaning and maintenance to ensure their longevity and effectiveness.

How do I clean lab mats?

Lab mats can typically be cleaned using mild detergents and water. For stubborn stains or contamination, specialised cleaning agents may be required. It's crucial to thoroughly rinse and dry the mats after cleaning to prevent residue buildup.

Can lab mats be autoclaved?

Some lab mats are autoclavable, meaning they can withstand autoclaving processes for sterilisation. However, not all lab mats are suitable for autoclaving, so it's essential to check the manufacturer's specifications before attempting sterilisation.

Are lab mats compatible with different types of laboratory equipment?

Yes, lab mats are designed to be compatible with various laboratory equipment, including glassware, microscopes, balances, and centrifuges. They provide a stable and secure surface for equipment operation and minimise the risk of accidents.
