Anti Fatigue Matting

Anti-fatigue mats are designed to make anyone standing on them ‘sway’ slightly. This swaying sensation encourages the calf and leg muscles to make subtle adjustments to maintain balance. These very small but continuous adjustments ensure the blood is always moving, which reduces the risk of developing pain and fatigue.

Our partner brand’s floor mats are designed and tested to provide different degrees of fatigue relief for different environments. The matting is graded in a ranking system on its anti-fatigue properties, slip resistance and wear resistance, allowing our customers to identify the most appropriate product for a particular workplace.

Decontamination Matting

Making sure your workplace does not get contaminated with dust or debris is a must in many industries particularly in; Aerospace, Laboratories, Pharmaceutical, Specialist Manufacturing.

Working with Blue Diamond, Lyreco can offer assistance with this potential contamination issue thanks to the Blue Diamond Sticky Step Plastic Tack Mat.

Sticky step plastic is a contamination control mat formed of 30 adhesive layers. Dust and dirt are effectively captured on the anti-microbial surface when foot-traffic or equipment wheels pass over it into the controlled environment. The layers can be easily peeled off to reveal a new clean surface, which is ideal for maintaining a clean room and laboratory standards. The bottom layer adheres to any clean, floor surface, helping to reduce the risk of the mat slipping, helping to prevent an additional hazard in a slip, trip, or fall.
