COBAmat PVC floor matting, manufactured by COBA Europe, is being used by farming and vegetable packing business Frederick Hiam at its Brandon site near Ipswich.
Over 40m of COBAmat Inter in blue was fitted to an open gridded platform floor in a busy area where parsnips are washed, graded, labelled and bagged. This area is prone to water spillage and loose food debris. Without the matting, the metal grid floor surface would be uncomfortable for employees whose jobs require prolonged standing.
The PVC woven design features open holes allowing liquid and debris to escape through the matting for safety underfoot. Fully-reversible and easy to install and clean, the interwoven design also gives COBAmat its flexible properties for increased durability and comfort.
Cross-ribbing in two directions helps to provide a firmer footing and the product conforms to Slip Resistance Test DIN51097 Category B.
