What Size Is A Commercial Kitchen Floor Runner?

By Paige Cerulli Created: May, 2022 - Modified: June, 2024

The flooring that you install in your commercial kitchen is essential to staff safety. A commercial kitchen floor runner can help you to quickly and easily maximize the safety of high-traffic areas in your kitchen.

What Is a Commercial Kitchen Floor Runner?

Commercial kitchen floor runners are long mats that you can lay on top of existing kitchen flooring. They can fit behind benches, in workstations, and along cooking lines, making these spaces safer for your staff.

Because commercial kitchen environments are particularly demanding, these mats are designed to be highly durable. They can not only withstand heavy foot traffic, but can also withstand water, grease, cleaning chemicals, and other elements that they may be exposed to in kitchens.

Most of these mats feature a non skid surface to help maximize staff safety, and they tend to be comfortable underfoot. They are also often perforated to let liquids drain through and keep staff feet dry.
