We have been helping organizations in automotive manufacturing make their workplaces safer and more comfortable for over 25 years. Our first customers were automotive manufacturing companies. They needed extraordinarily durable anti-fatigue matting and asked us to help.

 

Our team of ergonomic, engineering and kinesiology specialists developed a number of different tiles for all their workplace challenges.

 

Slips, Trips and Falls are the number one cause of workplace accidents in this sector. However there are many safety hazards which require special attention. We know the unique challenges faced in automotive manufacturing.

These are some common issues that we address:

Edges as Trip Hazards

Beveled edges are placed along any sides of matting sections where foot or cart traffic comes on or off. The height of the mat is no longer a trip hazard, plus our edges won’t curl or tear.

Lubricants

In areas of the manufacture line where lubricants are used, we recommend AG1 and AG2 tiles which are covered with the top grit surface available on the market today. Slip tests show a resistance of 1.54 with ASTM D1894.

Welding Stations

All our products are class 1 fire resistant so that welding sparks and metal can drop safely on the mats and extinguish without damage.

Hazard Areas

Use colored edges or highlight tiles to comply with OSHA Code 1910-144 to indicate machine and hazard areas.

 

 

Hoses as Trip Hazards

Tiles are constructed with special channels underneath to allow cords and hoses to be run safely out of the way of foot and cart traffic.

Double Mats as Trip Hazards

Our mats are 1” thick and never bottom out so it is not necessary to double up mats. Doubled mats slip more easily and often result in uneven edges which are unsightly and dangerous trip hazards.

Cart Traffic

For areas that primarily function as traffic areas for carts, we recommend A1-SM smooth top tiles, they do not have compression dome texture and allow for smooth and quiet cart movement.


5S and 6S Programs

Colored tiles can be used to organize work spaces and adhere to 5S and 6S programs.
