WaterHog Silver Mat

Product Number 184
WaterHog Silver mats feature the unique bi-level design that made WaterHog mats famous, with a new anti-microbial surface that reduces bacteria growth by 99%!
  • Anti-Microbial - Woven with a unique silver ion anti-microbial fiber, WaterHog Silver mats offer added protection from odor-causing bacteria
  • Dirt & Moisture Control - 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/yard2) is resistant to staining, dries quickly, and will not fade or rot
  • Safe - Beveled edges provide a safe transition from floor to mat; WaterHog products are certified high traction by the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI)
  • Eco-Friendly - PET fabric (30 ounces/yard2) is made from at least 90% recycled content reclaimed from plastic, and SBR rubber backing contains 20% recycled rubber from car tires
  • Available in 2 colors with choice of classic (rubber) border
  • Features 78-mil SBR rubber with universal cleated backing or smooth backing

WaterHog Silver features a zirconium phosphate-based ceramic ion-exchange resin that contains silver.  This resin is effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms that cause discoloration, odor, biofouling, and other aesthetic problems.  In independent tests conducted by The MicroStar Lab, WaterHog Silver reduced bacteria growth by more than 99%.  During testing, WaterHog Silver mat swatches are placed in a sterile container, inoculated with bacteria^, and incubated for a specified time.  After incubation, colonies of recovered bacteria are counted and used to determine percent reductions.  In the WaterHog Silver test, less than 1% of the bacteria remained; more than 99% had been reduced.  

^Specifically the klebsiella pneumoniae and staphylococcusaureus bacteria
