Hi Viz Mats – New Products At Durable Corp

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.

Why Spring Is the Right Time to Replace Your Loading Dock Wheel Chocks

OSHA requirement 1910.178(k)(1) requires the brakes of all highway trucks shall be set and wheel chocks be placed under the rear wheels to prevent trucks from rolling while they are boarded with powered industrial trucks. This is a relatively straight forward requirement when you think about it: if a fork lift is loading or unloading a trailer, the rear wheels must be chocked. Even in the absence of an OSHA requirement and subsequent fines for non-compliance, chocking trailer wheels during loading and unloading makes sense from a safety standpoint. The procedure is fast, easy, and simple.

With spring just around the corner in many parts of the country, now is the time to replace wheel chocks that may have been lost or damaged over the long winter months. Durable’s 88-8 Heavy Duty Laminated Wheel Chock which is made from recycled bus and truck tires and our 68-9 Molded Fiber Reinforced Molded Rubber Wheel Chock represent two of our most popular styles. We also carry several other wheel chock styles, including the 68-9-OR, 811-7, SC-8, WC5810 and new styles 89-7 and 87-10.

If you are waiting for lost wheel chocks to reappear in the melting snow drifts outside the loading dock, you are jeopardizing the safety of your employees and running the risk of an OSHA citation, so don’t delay. Replace your missing wheel chocks before you have a surprise visit from an OSHA inspector, or worse yet, a loading dock accident. To learn more about our complete line of loading dock wheel chocks, visit us online at or contact one of product specialists for additional information.
