Heronrib - Police dog van
Heronrib providing a hygienic and comfortable surface for police dogs
Heronrib matting, manufactured by Plastic Extruders Ltd, is being used to help Police Dogs keep clean and comfortable when on active duty.

Specialist vehicle company Auto Umbau required a high performance mat for lining the floors of stainless steel kennels fitted into Vauxhall Zafira cars and Hyundai Police Dog vehicles. The matting needed to be hygienic and comfortable but also sturdy and solid enough to withstand constant heavy use. Following tests, Heronrib was found to be the perfect solution and has now been rolled out across all the vehicles.

Manufactured from non-porous PVC, Heronrib has an overall height of 10mm with an embossed open grid top surface for improved slip resistance and comfort. Additionally, its raised profile underbars help fluids to drain away easily and also facilitate jet-cleaning of the cages. A further advantage is that Heronrib has impregnated anti-bacterial and anti-fungal additives making it hygienic and helping to prevent the spread of bacteria, thus reducing the risk of cross-contamination between animals.

Heronrib is a high performance slip resistant solution, normally used for wet areas in outdoor and indoor leisure facilities, such as on walkways, in changing rooms and around swimming pools. The matting, available in several colours, is supplied in 10m long rolls and widths of 50cm, 1m and 1.22m.
