The 4 Types of Restaurant Mats Your Business Needs Today

restaurant mats

Mats are important to have in all businesses, and especially in restaurants. They help prevent slips and falls, they keep floors clean, and they overall add to the professional look of any business.

Not all mats are created equal, however, and each type of mat serves a specific purpose. Here at Golden West Betterway, we’ve seen it all! Through over 30 years of experience, we’ve been able to narrow down the best mats any restaurant can benefit from having.

Here are the 4 types of mats your restaurant needs today:

1. Scraper Mats

Scraper mats are perfect for the entrance of your restaurant, right in front of the door. Think about how many customers and employees walk into your business on a daily basis, and how much dirt is on the bottom of their shoes. As much as 80% of the soil, dust, etc. that enters a facility is tracked in on the shoes of employees and visitors.

Scraper mats are made to be tough and durable, easily able to stop dirt and other bacteria before it enters your facility. Not only do scraper restaurant mats keep your floors clean, but they are also a great way to prevent slips and falls from tracked-in water.

Scraper mats will also save you time and money as they help reduce constant floor maintenance.

2. Entrance/Logo Mats

Entrance mats are great for enhancing your restaurant’s image while helping customers walk safely into your business. They further aid the scraper mats in preventing leftover dirt and water from being tracked into your restaurant.

Additionally, they provide the opportunity to show off you restaurant’s logo and make your business welcoming and pleasing to the eye. Logo mats are inviting to customers, and show the pride that you take in your business.

The great thing about logo mats is that they can say anything you want them to! They can be used to welcome guests or to warn employees that they are entering a hazardous area. Here at Golden West Betterway, we are committed to customizing our logo mats to your business’ specific needs.

3. Anti-Fatigue Mats

Anti-fatigue restaurant mats are perfect for any kitchen or cooking space. These cushioned mats help reduce the strain that standing all day in a kitchen will do to any employee. You want your employees to be comfortable so they can always perform at their best.

At Golden West Betterway, our anti-fatigue mats are designed to promote subtle movements in the legs and feet that help stimulate blood flow. This reduces stiffness and fatigue. Trust us, your employees will thank you!

4. Kitchen Mats

The final type of mat your restaurant needs is a kitchen mat. Grease, oil, and other liquid spills can lead to a variety of health hazards including falls, the spread of bacteria, and the attraction of bugs – yikes!

Kitchen mats are designed to keep kitchen floors clean and safe for your employees. These restaurant mats are slip-resistant and can be used in kitchens, behind bars, in walk-in freezers, and more!
