The Omni Drainage Mat is available in a 3x4, 3x20, 3x26 or 3x36. However, it’s only 3/8” thick so it will provide moderate anti-fatigue features, superior anti-slip qualities and good drainage properties.

Customer are sloppy and just don’t give crap if they drop ice cubes, soft drinks or soft-serve ice cream on the floor. This creates a slippery hazard to our customers. Several times a year the restaurant management gets threats of slip & fall lawsuits. How can we prevent this hazard at our Las Vegas restaurant? Which floor mat do you recommend?
The Uni-Mat is a common mat for this particular application. The floor mat is heavy so it will loose-lay securely. The mat borders are wide so the edges will not curl-up.
