Safety Mats FAQ's
Larco can modify any of the standard mat sizes at time of manufacturing to create an unlimited number of "custom" mat sizes and shapes. You can specify changes in length and/or width of a mat and/or cut notches, angles and radiuses for any of our standard mat sizes.
Larco mats are available in a number of color options? The standard mat color is black and yellow but other colors are available for an additional charge, including brown, grey, blue, red and other custom colors.
You can place any number of Larco mats side by side to obtain whatever length you desire. The only thing you are required to do is to remove the lock lip edge from each mat where any two mats are joined together? You then must place a piece of Active Joiner extrusion #230010 under that seam which guarantees a 100% active seam where the two mats are joined.
The Larco mat is designed to withstand load capacities of 3000 PSI. The only thing we suggest is that if forklift traffic will occur on the mats use the 2-1/2" ramp trim extrusion #211926 which has a more heavy duty design over the 2" ramp trim extrusion #219033.
Answer: The trim provides the user with four functions. One, according to industrial safety standards a mat that is used cannot be easily moved out of position. The trim is properly install it will hold the mat or mats in place. Two, according to the safety standards the mat cannot create a tripping hazard. The ramp trim creates a gradual incline to the mat surface thereby reducing the tripping hazard. Three, the trim provides a place to run the mat cords which protect the cords from damage and helps in the ease of installation. Four, the trim prevents debris from building up under the mat which over time may flex the mat enough to cause a false activation.
