Rubber floor covering is also healthier. It’s anti-slip surface reduces the risk of falls and injuries. It absorbs impact and prevents tendons and joints from over-stressing. It saves on hoof and shoe wear. And rubber flooring instead of clay reduces dust to help COPD sufferers.
Research results also prove that a non-porous, vulcanised-sealed rubber surface has a lower microbial count than concrete. Any soiling that may find its way under the mat has no impact on the hygiene status.
