With the cold weather creeping in early this year, it's time to start thinking about shoes tracking in dirt, mud, snow, water and other debris and how you will protect your workplace floors, employees and customers.

A preventive method for slips, trips and falls in the workplace is an effective mat system; if properly installed, should get nearly 100% of the dirt coming through the door.

Currie Motors valued customer of Roscoe – the Chicago mat company that understands the importance of providing a safe work environment is Currie Motors. Currie Motors has two locations in Illinois that the mat company services – one in Frankfort and one in Forest Park. Their highly educated staff and large inventory can guide you in purchasing a new or used Ford or Chevrolet.

Both of their locations have a showroom and as you can imagine it is flooded with people. Yet, it is impeccably clean and beautiful. Studies and experience have shown that presentability can influence buyer behavior and user experience and Currie Motors provides a great experience. They are taking pride in their image and brand by renting mats from Roscoe.

At their locations, Currie Motors has about 40 mats laid throughout their showroom. They are utilizing a variety of mat rentals including scraper mats, super bristle mats, image mats, and custom logo mats.

Mats Add Professionalism to a Workplace

Scraper Mats

Scraper mats are the first stage of defense against particles and contaminants because they are made with a heavy and durable rubber. Its improved ergonomics increase employee comfort, reduce fatigue and, thus, result in greater productivity. Super bristle mats are great for entryways and are the most aggressive in a mat system, stopping 35% more dirt and debris than traditional mats.

The Chicago mat company is unique in offering scraper mats in sizes as large as 6'x10'. Image mats are made with 100% Nitrile Rubber that resists curling, cracking and movement and add an aesthetic appeal. Like image mats, custom logo mats promote your company's image throughout your facility while adding an additional layer of professionalism and keep your facility tidy.

Renting mats offers a plethora of benefits including placing clean mats, removing soiled ones and conditioning mats. The Chicago mat company also purchases the highest quality mats available and launders them on the regular, making them last longer than store bought mats.
