Extreme Situation Fall Protection Mats
Big Mats for Big Falls

    Extreme Situation Fall Protection Mats are engineered to provide a durable resilient landing zone for people who accidentally fall from heights of up to 15 feet or more depending on the size of the person.Extreme Situation Fall Protection Mats are constructed with extra heavy duty 22 ounce per square yard Nylon reinforced vinyl cover material, three layers of specially selected polyurethan foams, a fully vented mesh top surface with special seam integration flaps, mechanical fasteners that join mat sections into fully configured mat deployments, a top cover for use during storage and to protect against inclement weather exposure.

The thing about arresting a falling body that is so problematic is the need to defuse the force of the fall quickly enough to stop the fall while not allowing the material that stops the fall from becoming itself detrimental the person’s wellbeing. Starting at the top of the mat, which might be called the “business” surface, the Extreme Situation Fall Protection Mats are equipped with a mildew resistant mesh that allows for almost 100% air evacuation directly upon impact. As the air blows out, the foam beneath (1118) begins to do what it does best: cushion the person in a cocoon-like way that is instantly custom-molded to the faller’s body. As the initial foam cushion gets compacted, the next two layers of foam (1236) that have been specially configured in what might be described as a honeycombed-style matrix of double-layers of foam integrated with large open space that allow the foam itself to fall away from the faller only to be contained, controlled and arrested by still more foam in the bottom most layer.

 

It is expected that the mats may be used in exterior locations and in certain extreme conditions. With that in mind, the Zipper that seals the outside cover is made of corrosion resistant plastic. The D-rings used in the buckle latch system that hold the mat sections together are zinc-coated. The vinyl cover sewn around the sides and bottom and used as the storage cover is of the same grade used as truck loading dock seal material. You can just imagine what kind of a beating those things experience.

Extreme Situation Fall Protection Mats are joined together to form broader layouts. An ample 9 inch wide flap that connects to a 4 inch wide strip of Velcro along the entire length of the seam is employed to make the coverage from section-to-section all but seamless. There are four handles sewn into the 12 foot long sides of each mat to allow for ease of portability.
