What is a Good Mat for Your Commercial Kitchen

Slips, trips, and falls are major safety concerns in commercial kitchens. An effective way to prevent these types of accidents is utilizing kitchen matting to keep people on their feet. Matting provides a higher friction surface than the installed flooring, which is helpful in a kitchen environment where various liquids, such as oils and greases, are commonly spilled.

What should you think about when selecting a commercial kitchen mat? Whether you have a small kitchen space or a bustling restaurant, material, size, location, and color are all things to consider. Watch this 3-minute instructional video to learn how to select a good mat for your commercial kitchen.
