Heronrib matting, manufactured by Plastic Extruders Ltd, is helping keep prayers safe at the Karama Mosque in Dubai. The slip resistant matting has been specified by Intercare Ltd, Plastex distributor in the UAE, and was installed over the tiled floors in the Mosque's three internal ablution areas. Here the ablution, 'Wudu', is performed 5 times a day, the ceremony which involves washing the head, hands, face and feet before walking barefoot into the prayer areas.

Not only does the matting provide protection from slipping on the tiled floor but its surface is impregnated with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal additives. This ensures that it is hygienic for bare feet, reducing the risk of cross-contamination, as well as being comfortable underfoot thanks to its embossed surface.

Heronrib is widely used in swimming pools, changing rooms and showers, and is the well proven safety solution for wet areas. The matting is manufactured from hardwearing non-porous vinyl with a two layer open grid construction and channelled underbars to help water drain away easily in all directions. This means the embossed surface remains relatively dry and highly slip resistant.

Heronrib is available in several colours and is normally supplied in 10m long rolls and widths of 50cm, 1m and 1.22m.
