Custom Made Rubber Tire Link Mats
For a wide variety of special uses.

    Custom Made Rubber Tire Link Mats - As an example of what kind of application might call for a Custom Made Rubber Tire Link Mat consider that The Mat King has been supplying the US Postal Service with Custom Made Step Treads for use in the recessed foot wells on the famous Grumman Long Life Vehicle (LLV) in service since 1987 and manufactured through 1994 to protect mail carriers from the potential slip and fall accidents particularly in inclement weather so common in the snow belt region of the northern parts of our country. These hearty "work horse-like" trucks were originally expected to last twenty (20) years, but are now expected to last thirty (30) years, which would bring their usable life out to between 2017 and 2024 depending on when they were manufactured.

The way this kind of adaptation becomes a necessity may be a something designers of future long life products such as the LLV could take into consideration when first developing their plans. Nothing lasts forever, but somethings can almost be counted on to ware out way before the main entity does. Thus the story of the surface of the step well in the LLV. But, for now, allow The Mat King to come to the rescue by creating a special custom made mat to provide the needed features at a modest investment.

US Postal Service LLV step well
The LLV is equipped diamond deck plate in the step well - but after tremendous use even diamond deck plate embossed metal can get so worn as to become slippery. When that happens, mail carriers can easily assume that they are safe when in fact they may no longer be since the usually dependable surface may look like it always did but its ability to provide slip resistance even when wet may be gone.
