WaterHog Plus Mat

Stock Product Number 6185
WaterHog Plus mats are durable, stain-resistant mats with a unique bi-level design that traps dirt and moisture, keeping your floors clean, dry, and safe.  WaterHog Plus mats feature an attractive swirl pattern and are backed with 100% nitrile rubber making them commercially launderable.
  • Clean & Dry - Bi-level surface effectively scrapes dirt and moisture from shoes, trapping it beneath shoe level to prevent tracking; water dam border holds moisture keeping it off your floors (WaterHog mats can hold up to 1.5 gallons of water per square yard)
  • Durable - Reinforced rubber nubs prevent pile from crushing and extend the performance life of the mat
  • Fade & Stain-Resistant - Solution-dyed PET fabric (30 ounces/square yard) is resistant to staining, dries quickly, and will not fade or rot
  • Eco-Friendly - PET fabric is made from up to 97% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles; may contain up to 3% latex
  • Safe - Beveled edges provide a safe transition from floor to mat; certified high-traction by the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI)
