INTRODUCING: MATTA PRODUCTS LIMITED - SPECIALIST SAFETY SURFACING SOLUTIONS
Matta Products is a world leader in the innovation, design and manufacture of high quality, ergonomic, safety surfacing solutions for industrial and commercial environments as well as for playground, sport and recreational venues. Matta Products has built its international reputation by creating products of consistent quality and durability, with proven health and safety benefits that are also made from environmentally friendly recycled materials.
PROTECTION AT WORK AND PLAY
Health and safety regulations worldwide have required that businesses and communities become more pro-active in the utilization of products that are proven to significantly reduce
the risk of personal injury while at work or play. Matta has answered the challenge by taking a ground-up approach, designing a robust, cost-effective product that disperses and cushions a person's body weight, thereby reducing discomfort and fatigue.
A “FLOOR ABOVE THE FLOOR”™
The Matta concept - "A Floor Above the Floor" ™ - is the result of extensive research and development to design a specialized safety surface system with scientifically proven ergonomic and health benefits. Matta's flooring tiles incorporate a unique understructure of Compression Columns™ that act as springs when weight is applied to the surface of the tile to counter the negative effects of impact or standing for prolonged periods. This ergonomic concept has been shown to significantly increase user comfort.
PIONEERING RECYCLING TECHNOLOGY
Matta Products is a company that is committed to creating superior products which protect people and their property, as well as the environment we all share. As a globally responsible manufacturer we actively promote and continually optimize recycling systems for all our resourcing and manufacturing processes. Because recycling is a core value of our business, over 90% of Work Matta™ products are made from materials recovered from the waste-cycle stream using our innovative and patented recycling technology.
We utilize plastic and other waste from around the world, and give it new life as a range of durable, high quality safety flooring products that we are proud to put our name on.

WORKING SOLUTIONS Work Matta™ flooring is used world-wide, in a variety of commercial environments such as: heavy industrial, food processing, manufacturing, engineering, retail, services, health, recreational, offices and workstations - anywhere that the safety and protection of both people and product is important!

WORK MATTA™ ERGONOMIC BENEFITS
At Matta Products we realize that you can purchase anti-fatigue matting from many supply outlets. However Work Matta™ is special:
Work Matta™ is unique in offering scientifically proven, ergonomic health and safety benefits, while delivering outstanding value and guaranteed durability.
There is a choice of tile compression values with color options available by request.
The results of extensive, rigorous and controlled testing by a team of independent ergonomists and human physiology specialists at Massey University in New Zealand, show that the Matta range of safety surface flooring significantly reduces the perception of discomfort in the legs and lower backs of people standing for extended periods of time.
All Matta tiles utilize a unique Compression Column ™ construction specifically designed to encourage proper body alignment while promoting a calculated degree of movement or "sway". This almost imperceptible motion stimulates the muscles and promotes efficient circulation of blood through the veins - especially in the legs - which is key to preventing worker fatigue and discomfort.
THE MATTA ERGONOMIC "FAMILIES" OF SAFETY SURFACING
Work Matta™ tiles are available in three grades of compressibility with varying degrees of ergonomic "sway":

  • Comfort™: low compression (firm)
  • Excel™: mid-grade compression
  • Ergo™: high compression (soft)

Comfort Mats
Comfort Mats

THE INDUSTRIAL & COMMERCIAL PROTECTION SURFACE
The low-compression Comfort™ range is structurally robust and is capable of tolerating the heavy loads and harsh conditions associated with industrial environments.
Comfort™ tiles are available with a range of surface options. The Diamond Shield™ closed-surface provides excellent anti-slip properties while the Smooth Top™ surface is ideally suited to debris-sensitive areas that need to be easily cleaned.
Comfort™ is also available in Carpet Top™ where an office-type environment may be preferred. Comfort™ compatible safety ramp edging, in matching black or high-visibility yellow, ensures a safe transition to and from the Work Matta™ area. Comfort™ is designed to provide a safe, comfortable area for people in industrial environments who are required to stand for long periods of time.

COMFORT™ SUMMARY OF FEATURES

  • Heavy duty - extra strong & robust
  • Ergonomic Compression Column™ benefits
  • Diamond Shield™ open or closed, Carpet Top™ & Smooth Top™ surface options PLUS Grit & ESD
  • Excellent sound dampening qualities
  • Arrow Lock™ modular interlocking system

Excel Mats

COMMERCIAL SAFETY SURFACE
Excel™ mid-compression tiles are the safety flooring solution for the heavy to light-industrial and commercial markets. Excel™ can be used to create an attractive, safe and healthy environment for workers and customers alike.
Excel™ closed top tiles feature the Shock Pocket™ surface design, which helps to deaden shock and increases tile compression, a must for workers who are required to stand in static positions for extended periods of time. The pronounced ridges of the Excel Shock Pocket™ surface provides effective traction for areas where sure footing is important. Excel™ compatible safety ramp edging, in matching black or high-visibility yellow, ensures a safe transition to and from the Work Matta™ area. Excel™ tiles incorporate Flex Lock™, the interlocking system that ensures stability even in extreme conditions.

EXCEL™ SUMMARY OF FEATURES

  • Industrial/commercial - robust & protective
  • Ergonomic Compression Column™ benefits
  • Shock Pocket™ tread provides effective traction
  • Shock Pocket™ open or closed surface design PLUS Grit & ESD
  • Excellent sound dampening qualities
  • Flex Lock™ interlocking system

Ergo Mats
Ergo Mats

For a stable surface in busy foot traffic situations, high-compression Ergo™ tiles, at half the size and thickness of other Work Matta™ tiles, are extremely versatile and can be installed in configurations to suit most work place situations.
The low profile of the Ergo™ tile and Ergo™ compatible safety ramp edging - available in black or high-visibility yellow - makes it safe and easy to enter and exit the Work Matta™ “Floor Above the Floor”™. Ergo™ closed-surface tiles are the perfect safety flooring solution for environments where function and style are high priorities. The Ergo Diamond Shield™ closed-surface tile provides excellent anti-slip properties while the open-surface tile is ideally suited to wet areas. The EZ-Snap™ interlocking system of the Ergo™ range makes installation and removal, if required, simple.

ERGO™ SUMMARY OF FEATURES

  • Commercial - protective & versatile
  • Smaller tile dimensions
  • Ergonomic Compression Column™ benefits
  • Diamond Shield™ open or closed surface PLUS Grit & ESD
  • Diamond Shield™ anti-slip tread
  • Excellent sound dampening qualities
  • EZ-Snap™ modular interlocking system

Work Matta Grit Mats
Grit Mats

Work Matta Grit™ is a maximum grip, durable, slip-resistant surface suitable for work areas where sure footing is paramount. Work Matta Grit™ performs well in conditions where footing may be compromized by fluids, dampness and industrial over-spray. Work Matta Grit™ Open surface tiles have efficient drainage to quickly disperse liquids and lubricants away from the surface, eliminating any pooling hazard. Work Matta Grit™ Closed surface tiles are useful in areas where extra traction is needed for foot-­tracking areas surrounding slippery trouble spots.
Because all Work Matta™ tiles are modular in design, Work Matta Grit™ can easily be incorporated into the overall layout of any standard Work Matta™ installation.

GRIT - PERFORMANCE PLUS
Work Matta Grit™ can be manufactured using any of the main tiles from the Work Matta™ range as a base. This means the Grit tiles retain the ergonomic benefits and technical features of the Work Matta™ tiles, plus have the additional advantage of a high-traction surface.
Using a special coating method, our Work Matta™ grit formula is first adhered to the Work Matta™ base tile and then subjected to a curing process that produces a robust anti-slip tile.

  • Hard-wearing Work Matta Grit™ tiles have a superior COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION

Work Matta ESD Mats
ESD Mats

The patented Matta Grounding Plate System™ is ideally suited to the modular, interlocking design of Work Matta ESD™.

WORK MATTA ESD™
Electro-static discharge - ESD - is a major concern for manufacturers and assemblers of electronic products. Effective, reliable ESD control can generate significant cost savings and production efficiencies. Specialized Work Matta ESD™ flooring will
provide protection from electro-static discharge in two ways:

  • As an anti-static area that will not allow static electricity to be generated at potentially hazardous levels.
  • By removing the charge from a conductive object placed on the surface.

Work Matta ESD™ flooring is highly effective because it is manufactured to perform within narrow parameters on the conductive/insulative spectrum and each tile is guaranteed to operate in the ideal dissipative range.

ESD - PERFORMANCE PLUS
Work Matta ESD™ is available as closed face, black tile, with a choice of ergonomic compression values and surface options: Comfort Diamond Shield™; Comfort Smooth Top™; Comfort Carpet Top™; Excel Shock Pocket™ and Ergo Diamond Shield™

  • Work Matta ESD™ is unique in having two functions in one mat offering both certified ESD control PLUS scientifically proven ergonomic health and safety benefits, while delivering outstanding durability and value.
Work Matta ESD™ should be a primary component of any program designed to minimize the threat of ESD events in the work place.

PERFORMANCE PLUS - WORK MATTA™ ADDITIVES
The function of a Work Matta™ “Floor Above the Floor”™ can be further enhanced by combining selected specialist additives into the tiles during the manufacturing process. These compounds are designed to counter a range of environmental factors that may impact on an ordinary safety surface installation, and therefore your business operation.
The standard range of Matta additives includes:

  • Anti-microbial agents
    These actively inhibit bacterial and fungal growth for Work Matta™ tile applications such as in food processing and ablution areas where water is prevalent and where maintaining high sanitary standards is important.
  • Anti-freeze agents
    These additives work to protect your Work Matta ™ installation against extremes of cold in tile applications where low temperatures are a concern such as in industrial freezers, and intemperate environmental conditions.
  • Fire-resistant agents
    The fire-resistant properties of standard Work Matta™ tiles can be increased for applications where a proactive fire safety protocol is required such as military installations and foundries.

CUSTOMIZED APPLICATIONS
Matta Products recognizes that there are times when the standard range of surfacing may not meet certain individual requirements. For this reason we can create customized Work Matta™ flooring to suit your needs - whether using special additives to counter environmental factors, adapting manufacturing processes to achieve particular ESD and technical outcomes, making tiles with specific ergonomic compression values or creating special design or color batches. The manufacture of non-standard Work Matta™ safety surfacing is based on minimum order requirements.
Talk to your Matta Products representative about creating a customized solution for any specialized needs you may have.

WORK MATTA™ - INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE
EASY CLEANING
Work Matta™ safety flooring is an easy-care product that can be cleaned as you would most other flooring surfaces - by sweeping, vacuuming, washing and scrubbing. Depending on the application of the tiles and environment in which they are installed, the use of additional cleaning agents may also be required. Most commonly used household cleaners such as detergent, abrasive creams and glass cleaner, are suitable for use on Work Matta™. If a bleach is required, use a percarbonate or non chlorine-based product. Surface scuff marks may be removed by spot cleaning with an aromatic hydrocarbon, such as mineral turpentine, which should be wiped or rinsed off afterwards.
Exposure to sulphur-based oils or fluids containing emulsifiers should be minimized and any pooling or puddling of such liquids should be immediately cleaned using standard absorption techniques, followed by washing with detergent. Work Matta™ is a stable PVC product and highly chemical-tolerant. However we recommend testing agents you are uncertain about on a small area first.
MODULAR DESIGN
Work Matta™ safety flooring systems are simple to install as well as being adaptable. Modular tiles can easily be configured to suit a wide variety of applications.

SAFETY CONSCIOUS & FUNCTIONAL STYLING
The professional look and functional safety of any Work Matta™ “Floor Above the Floor”™ installation is completed with a selection of interchangeable, safety ramp edging that easily locks into the modular tiles.
Work Matta™ safety ramp edging comes as a male or female modular fitting with straight or mitered ends to suit any configuration (see diagram above). The standard edging is available in matching black or high-visibility yellow color options.
Tidy away wires & cabling
The Compression Column™ sub-structure of Work Matta™ will accommodate a myriad of wiring and other commercial cabling that is needed in most work environments. The wiring remains easily accessible under the Work Matta™ tiles and, importantly, work areas are kept tidy and safe.
