Because we manufacture mats in a wide variety of lengths and widths, we usually have a stock product to suit just about any need. Although the vast majority of our customers order standard sizes, on occasion we receive a request for a mat with width measurements exceeding stock dimensions. In these cases, we seam or join two sections of mat together to achieve a desired custom width. The picture to the left shows the most popular mat we seam—our Diamond-Dek Sponge Mat.

Custom Seamed Diamond Dek Sponge Mat

Custom Seamed Diamond Dek Sponge Mat

Seaming is a process used to glue two mats together. For this project, we started by cutting 4” to 6” from the roll to remove the bevels and square the edges to be joined. With these cuts made, the two sections of Diamond-Dek were butted together, and glue was applied to create a seam. Once the adhesive dries, we can then perform any special cut outs, bevels, or rounded corners requested by the customer. The finished product shown here is seamed from 4’ wide Diamond-Dek material to make a 7’ wide mat.

If your employees move from one work station to the next rather than remaining stationary in one spot, or your manufacturing cells require mats with custom configurations (e.g., L or T shapes), the mats created by seaming can provide continuous comfort over larger portions of the production floor. To learn more about our custom seaming capabilities used to achieve special widths, or to request a quote, contact the mat experts at Durable Corporation for more assistance.

The Hi Viz (bright, almost neon yellow) coloring phenomenon in industrial design has given old products new visibility – quite literally! Durable Corp. mats are no exception. In 2013 we introduced three new matting products that set the standard in our industry for high visibility safety marked floor mats.

Our three Safe Zone High Visibility Mats:

  • Workmaster-HV
  • Diamond-Dek-HV
  • Sof-Spun HV

These mats promote both safety awareness and comfort by combining a High Visibility yellow mat surface with beveled edging. Sof-Spun-HV and Diamond-Dek-HV are 100% Hi Viz yellow color throughout the entire mat substrate. They are available in rolls, standard sizes, and custom cuts. Workmaster II- HV black industrial mats with drainage holes features a highly visible yellow beveled edge border.

Diamond-Dek sponge high visibility anti-fatigue matting features a diamond tread pattern for sure footing . High visibility yellow color clearly identifies a work area where safety is a must! Sof Spun high visibility matting is a sponge vinyl cushioned mat that helps to ease foot, leg and back fatigue at standing workstations. Workmaster II high visibility matting is a tough industrial mat with Hi-Viz yellow beveled edges. This mat can help create an ultra safe work environment at all types of workstations.The High Visibility Yellow beveled edges clearly identifies work areas

High visibility yellow is in all our futures. Make it part of your company’s safety plan to provide comfort while indicating the appropriate safe-work zones.
