The Andersen Company is a producer of high-quality, dependable mats for indoors and outdoors. This post is dedicated Healthcare Solutions.

Interior Mats

Interior mats perform many tasks. They are useful as dust control or finishing mats when used in conjunction with an entrance mat program. There are many areas of a healthcare facility that require an interior “finishing” mat. In areas with high traffic flow, and the possibility of spills and contamination, interior mats are used to protect floors and minimize tracking. They also improve traction when placed on hard surface floors.

Entrance Mats

Maintaining a high level of appearance and providing a safe environment for occupants is a challenge all healthcare facilities face on a daily basis. The International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA), the world’s largest cleaning association, has found that as much as 80% of the dirt that enters a facility is tracked in as people enter the premises. These contaminates, if allowed to enter the facility can cost up to $600 per pound to remove and cause health risks to employees, patients, and visitors. High performance entrance mats and entrance systems can capture as much as 90% of these contaminates at the door.  This proactive measure greatly reduces occupant exposure while saving healthcare facilities hundreds of dollars annually in cleaning and maintenance costs.

Ergonomic Mats

Many healthcare employees that stand on hard surfaces such as tile and linoleum ofter suffer from fatigue and discomfort that can lead to reduced productivity. Prolonged standing puts pressure on the feet, leg muscles, spine, neck, and shoulders and can lead to chronic pain, injuries, and muscular disorders.

As a practical consideration, by providing anti-fatigue matting in many areas of the healthcare facility, employers will see many benefits that lead to savings through increased productivity and worker moral, and decreases in sick leave, worker compensation claims, and substandard production due to fatigue.

Slip Resistant Mats

Slips and falls will occur, but there are steps management can incorporate to minimize these accidents. Proper matting and floor covering certified by the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) is the best step to reduce these occurrences in high risk and high traffic areas. Over 30 Andersen products carry the NFSI certification. These mats have been subjected to a rigorous series of NFSI tests that include real world applications. Andersen continues to be the leader in high performance safe matting products.

Green Cleaning

Entrance mats are an integral part of any green cleaning program. By preventing contaminants from entering a facility mats will substantially reduce the need for cleaning chemicals that might be harmful to the building occupants and the environment. As a member of the US Green Building Council, The Andersen Company is committed to developing a manufacturing green friendly mat products. Their rubber compounds now contain 25% recycled rubber content, and the WaterHog mat line also contains recycled fiber content. Andersen makes buildings cleaner by keeping them cleaner.
