In food processing not any wet area mat will do. It has to be easy to clean, easy to handle, fight contaminates and resist animal fats. Elevate AFR was designed specifically to perform in the highly regulated food processing and preparation industries. It is made from a flexible animal fat resistant PVC infused w/anti-microbial and anti-fungal additives so it is resistant to animal fats and oils. The 1-1/8" x 3/4" widely spaced grid design allows fluids and by-products to fall through while elevating employees above it. Elevate is up to 1/3 the weight of conventional rubber drainage mats so it is easy to install, clean, roll up and move. Elevate Connectors allow you to combine sections of mats together. Create longer lengths, wider widths, or custom shapes with the floor hooks. It is recommended that you use 1 connector every 12". It’s time to “Elevate” your employees!
