Our barrier mats have an eco-genics backing as standard, here are some of it's wonderful qualities - 

Anti-slip: The waffle design combined with the soft latex rubber allows grip on hard, polished surfaces to stop the mat from slipping or creeping. While the anti-slip does work on most carpets, depending on the pile weight and construction there can be slight movement. 

Anti-stain: Our stable rubber compound backing is designed not to leave marks, is non-damaging and contains non-staining antioxidants – tested for use on a wide variety of floorings. Our backing is also free from both vinyl & PVC

Recycled content: We have always looked for the best way of preventing harmful waste, as part of that we have invested in technology that allows us to add renewable rubber and post industrial plastics into the rubber backing therefore saving over 100 tonnes of plastic per year going to landfill and damaging our environment! We are very proud of the fact that our textile mills in Yorkshire are ZERO waste to landfill!

Our extra tough fibre membrane is made from recycled plastic bottles and bottle tops to bond the fibres to the backing. At our Yorkshire factories we recycle over 16 million plastic bottles each year preventing them ending up in the oceans or landfill.

From the sourcing of our materials, the development of entirely new manufacturing processes, using cleaner/greener sources of electricity made by hydro pumps, windmill farms and solar, through to our products disposal and recycling, we try to considered everything to ensure they have as light an environmental footprint as possible.

Machine washable: Washable at 30ºC. Due to the strong bonding layer and the flexible rubber backing the mats can be washed over and over again. The tufted surface becomes more absorbent once washed.
