Tech Talk

 Durable manufactures specialty matting products that can help protect floors and prevent accidents in your workplace. 

When people build their business from the ground up, they don’t always think about flooring. However, when you need the proper support and protection to work on your feet all day or prepare for special business needs, choosing the right flooring can make a huge difference.

That’s why Durable offers specialty matting products for business. It’s good to have options, so Durable manufactures a variety of specialty matting products, including:

  • Mats
  • Tiles
  • Tapes
  • Paints

Every business has different needs for their mats, which is why we provide plenty of options for business looking for protection, aesthetic appeal, or both.

Protection Provided by Specialty Matting

Even a small slip is a big deal. Specialty matting can come in a variety of forms to protect against a variety of threats. Dura Kote non-skid paint, anti-slip tapes, and steel mats are all different options to fend off workplace accidents.

Your workers aren’t the only thing you may need to protect. Specialty matting can help protect the floors of your facility, your drawers, and even your vehicles as well. Dura Pro tiles are an easy-to-use hardwood flooring tile option for special events, creating a strong, attractive cover for hardwood flooring that needs to be protected from damage. Cushion tiles provide an interlocking layer of cover for a variety of surfaces.

Adding to Aesthetic Appeal with Specialty Mat Products

Metallic Diamond Dek Runners can provide a flash of color to your work spaces or showrooms. Sometimes keeping an area clean can make all the difference. Step-N-Clean mats absorb residue on dirty shoes to prevent people from tracking a mess into your facility.

Specialty Matting Solutions for Business

Whether a business needs protective surfaces or flashy floors, Durable specialty mat products give you plenty of options to help pad your facilities. Contact us today about our specialty matting products.

 Corner guards and extruded wall guards protect storage spaces, parking garages, and other settings. 

Cutting corners can hurt more than just the quality of a business’ products; it can also leave a large mark in their walls. A damaged wall, corner, or any other part of your building is a lasting reminder that proper wall protection is an important addition to any commercial or industrial setting. Here are some ways to make your business more durable.

Cutting Out Damages with Corner Guards

Durable corner guards are made of a heavy duty rubber compound to help prevent mishaps in your loading docks, parking garages, storage spaces, and any other location. Corner guards are a simple solution from beginning to end, as they’re easy to install and maintenance free, even withstanding severe elements.

Eliminating Issues with Extruded Wall Guards

Even a little bump can have a big impact. Extruded wall guards add some needed cushion to your docks, garages, and other settings. Whether you’re afraid that a forklift may wreak havoc on your walls or a regular driver may have an unfortunate mishap, wall guards provide extra defense in a variety of styles.

Preventing Property Damage with Durable Wall Protection Products

If you need wall protection, Durable can help. Both our corner guards and extruded wall guards can be made up to 10 feet long to provide extended protection, since you never want to come up short when an accident happens. If you need custom sizing to fit your facility, we can work with you to meet your needs.

Accidents happen, so don’t let your walls pay the price for them. Contact us today about protecting your walls with corner guards and extruded wall guards.

Custom loading dock bumpers for businesses.

All it takes is one mistake to make a person realize that they should have had loading dock bumpers installed. Problems can happen during loading and unloading, especially when you aren’t the person behind the wheel of the semi-trailer backing up to your building.

Proper loading dock bumpers help you protect yourself from these incidents, keeping your dock safe and the loading and unloading process nice and easy.

The Benefits of Loading Dock Bumpers

Mistakes happen. However, there are ways to turn what could be a big on-site accident into nothing more than a little bump in the road.

Durable dock bumpers have been shown to absorb more than 80 percent of impact, which can save both your dock and the offending vehicle a lot of damage. Not only will this make you happy that you won’t have to worry about structural damage, but the driver can’t also come away knowing that his or her vehicle won’t need time in the shop. Plus, our loading duck bumpers last for years, providing dock defense for any future incidents.

Where Loading Dock Bumpers Can Be Used

Every dock is a little different, so Durable offers custom bumpers to fit the product to your needs, including:

  • Gussets for low docks
  • Extended plates where bolting won’t work
  • Rub rails for narrow truck wells
  • Wall bumpers for fork lifts

Regardless of how your dock may differ from the norm, we can work toward a solution.

Providing Protection with Durable Loading Dock Bumpers

When it comes to defending you facilities, you can trust a company with over 90 years of experience. We’ve been manufacturing safety products for companies since 1923 and our bumpers will provide you years of reassurance that your docks are safe.
