SAFETY MATS AND INTERLOCKING FLOOR TILES

AA Matting Solutions has been a reliable and innovative supplier of a wide range of rubber and PVC flooring systems for almost 10 years. AA Group diversified into this area after listening to the needs existing customers in nursing homes, hospitals, and laboratories, however they now service all industries where these products are required. AA Matting Solutions are usually called in to address the following issues:

  • Workplace fatigue. Making your staff more comfortable when standing for long periods of time can help motivate and increase efficiency. Combating fatigue makes sense, staff who are tied and uncomfortable will more readily make mistakes which results in lower quality output.
  • Dirt ingress into your workplace both creates general workplace hygiene problems which demotivates staff, and increases cleaning and maintenance costs.
  • Slip and trip hazards are one of the most common safety issues in the workplace. These hazards may be caused by process generated substances such as water or by unevenness in your flooring.


Lokmat PVC Tiles - A durable, long lasting solution

AA Matting Solutions supply Lokmats and Loktiles which are made from 100% recycled PVC via an injection moulding process.

Lokmat tiles

Installation

Lokmat and Loktile Easylay installation could not be simpler as tiles and ramps are equipped with dovetail connections on all sides. This system facilitates a simple and quick placing of the floor, fitting the tiles and locking them into each other.


Applications

Lokmat and Loktile flooring systems are used today in refineries, distilleries, oilrig platforms, electro galvanizing industry, laboratories, chemical plants, soft drink industry, breweries, meat and fish plants, refrigerated warehouses, industrial kitchens, agricultural greenhouses, workshops, sporting facilities, etc. In general, any area where prolonged standing or walking is a requirement.


Adaptability

AA Matting Lokmat and Loktile floor solutions are almost unlimited with due to their anti-slip and anti-fatigue properties. Lokmat and Loktile do not conduct heat or cold, nor electricity when dry and is completely rot and rust proof.

The dovetailed connection of ramps allows for smooth transition to the Lokmat area which is easily traversed by trolleys or forklifts. Please note that soft Lokmat is not suitable for forklift passage.

Some of the solutions that AA Group has come up with for the use of Lokmat is quite ingenious, for example:

  • A customer who was contracting on a building site, connected a series of ramps on either side of a conduit and eliminated a trip hazard using a highly visible series of ramps in black/yellow alternating sequence.
  • An HSSE manager had a problem in a high traffic area within a zinc plating plant. She used Lokmats in a shared pedestrian and forklift zone. The Lokmats both marked out the pedestrian area for forklifts even when reversing and allowed safer pedestrian egress in a very damp area. Note that forklifts must have pneumatic tyres to be driven on Lokmat.
  • A frozen foods company used Loktile to reduce the impact of cold floors on its staffs’ feet when working for long periods of time in their freezers.
  • One warehouse had 30 staff who were standing on concrete floors, staff were complaining about the temperature of the concrete and the fatigue that they were suffering. Lokmat soft improved staff morale and work output dramatically.
