Locker Room Mats, Changing Room Mats & Shower Room Mats

The locker and shower rooms of swimming pools, gyms and other leisure facilities are prone to having wet and slippery floors. Using appropriate wet area matting can help to prevent dangerous slip and fall accidents in locker rooms and help to provide traction underfoot. Often, people using the locker room will be barefooted, so you should use matting that is comfortable to walk on in bare feet.  

Ideally, locker room floor mats should have flow through holes, to allow water to drain away from the mat, giving swimmers a safe and slip free walking surface. Some wet area mats are also treated with an anti-microbial coating, which prevents the spreading of germs and contamination with people walking on them in bare feet – this would be ideal in locker rooms.  

What are some of the Features:

  • Slip Resistance: Mats are engineered with textured surfaces or patterns to provide excellent traction, minimising the risk of slips and falls, particularly in wet environments like showers and changing areas.
  • Water Absorption: Many mats boast high absorbency, effectively trapping moisture from wet feet, clothing, or spilled liquids to keep floors dry and safe.
  • Durability: Constructed from robust materials, these mats are built to withstand heavy foot traffic, frequent cleaning, and exposure to moisture and chemicals commonly found in locker room settings.
  • Hygiene: Some mats are treated with anti-microbial agents to prevent the growth of bacteria, mould, and mildew in humid locker room environments, ensuring a clean and sanitary space.
  • Comfort: Certain mats offer cushioning and support, providing a comfortable surface for users to stand on during changing or showering activities, reducing fatigue and discomfort.
