Rubber-Cal recently expanded its product line to include two new matting products for the food service industry: the Dura-Chef Jr. and Dura-Chef Sr. The new Dura-Chef kitchen mats are designed to prevent slips and falls in food prep areas where the floor tends to be damp or greasy. The key is the large drainage holes which trap dirt, liquids, and grease beneath the surface of the mat where people step. Also, for additional traction, the edges of the drainage holes are raised, providing a safe surface for workers to walk across and increasing foot comfort.
These food service mats are available in 7/8 inch thick (Dura-Chef Sr.) or 1/2 inch thick (Dura-Chef Jr.). The 7/8" Dura-Chef is recommended for commercial applications or large kitchens, food prep areas, and fry stations. The 1/2" Dura-Chef is suggested for individual uses or smaller bars and food prep areas.
The Dura-Chef mats are offered in general purpose black and grease resistant red. The grease resistant red contains high contents of the elastomer Nitrile (Buna-N), making it extremely resistant to grease and oils, and very durable over time.
