An oil-slicked aisle in the heart of the shop. A slippery slope forming at the end of your grinding equipment. Dust, debris, or grease that is tracked from the shop into the office. Any of these common occurrences can result in costly cleanup or, worse, the human toll exacted when a team member experiences a slip-and-fall accident. You think you’ve solved the problem by throwing down a few mats. You’ve only created different slip-and-fall scenarios: soiled mats sliding on a wet workspace, a rippled rug in a high-traffic area, a corner that bunches and catches on warehouse equipment or an individual’s foot.

NuTrend, a leader in sorbents, has introduced TaskBrand® SureGrip absorbent adhesive floor mats featuring the next generation of sorbent technology to help prevent slips, trips, and falls. SureGrip offers superior absorption and an impermeable adhesive backing. They’re fast-drying, won’t slip, and are available in 50-foot or 100-foot rolls that can be easily custom-cut for hard-to-fit areas. The material is fire retardant as per ASTM 726.

SureGrip mitigates the sobering statistics for slip-and-fall injuries. Falls caused by slips—12 percent of total falls—account for over 1 million hospital emergency room visits. Falls resulting from slips are the primary cause of lost days and, for people of ages 55 years and older, are both the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims and the leading cause of occupational injury.

Industry-leading absorbency combined with high durability means SureGrip has you covered when the unexpected happens. The heavyweight universal sorbent material absorbs excess moisture, oil, grease, condensation, and spills. SureGrip also provides effective barrier protection, stopping dust, dirt, and debris from entering offices or storefronts.

The advanced adhesive backing will ensure the mats stay put, regardless of constant foot traffic and rollovers by warehouse equipment like carts, hand trucks, and forklifts. For easy removal, the mats’ remarkable sticky backing stops just short of the edges.

Prevent slips and falls with TaskBrand SureGrip floor mats that adhere and stay flat, absorb spills, and can be made to fit even unusually shaped floor areas.
