If you work in a warehouse or factory in the UK, you will be used to the impact weather will have on the environment you work in. Without a doubt you will be aware of rain and mud in the winter, dust and dirt in the summer constantly being dragged into the warehouse on the wheels of forklift trucks and the boots of employees.

Well, Strata Sales have a solution, a tough, affordable mat to clean the wheels of forklift trucks, and the feet of anyone who walks across it. It is called Clean-Start.

“We’ve sold forklift truck wheel cleaning mats before but realised our previous solutions were good but felt they could do better” Comments Randal Thomas, Strata Sales Managing Director.

“There are other solutions available in the marketplace – hard, coarse mats that are tough but have a minimal absorbency and integrated systems with moveable parts that are at the top end of the market. But no tough, absorbent mats at an affordable price were available. So, we set out to source and develop one and we are delighted with our solution. We’ve developed a simple to install mat that absorbs up to 6 litres of moisture and 1400g of dirt per square metre – that’s 50% more moisture and an impressive 75% more dirt than standard floor mats!”

It’s fair to say the Clean-Start mat is not what you’d expect to find in a warehouse doorway. The 14mm high, fine-twist nylon is 40% thicker than a standard mat and looks luxurious and arguably would not look out-of-place in a hotel reception or business foyer. However, the twist nylon does an incredible cleaning job and the heavyweight, non-slip nitrile rubber backing protects the mat from oil damage. Thus, ensuring the mat is tough enough to clean the dirtiest of forklift wheels.

It’s easy to clean, easy to install and easy to relocate.

An added bonus is that Clean-Start can also be used to kill germs and viruses with the addition of disinfectant, obviously invaluable in the current battle to keep workplaces Covid-19 free and employees safe.

With workplace compensation claims ranging from £1,675 to £99,500 and estimated by the Health and Safety Executive to cost employers around £500m per year. Any employer who doesn’t worry about wet, slippery floors is putting themselves and their business at risk.
