Dycem mats and flooring for increased Contamination Control

About Floor Level Contamination

80% of all contamination enters a critical environment at floor level on feet or wheels (Source: 3M). Therefore, controlling contamination and cross-contamination at or near floor level is an essential and fundamental part of protecting your critical environment from particulates and microbial counts.

  • The stickiness and suppleness of our floors efficiently ensure that the contaminants transfers from shoes/wheels to the Dycem flooring and stays there.
  • We use an antimicrobial solution in all our products which stops bacteria and fungi from multiplying and spreading into your critical areas. Our antimicrobial agent does not stop viruses, but the fore mentioned stickiness and suppleness effect does stop particles carrying pathogens such as viruses.

Installing Dycem Contamination Control mats or flooring prior to all entrances to critical areas will prevent up to 99.9% of foot and wheel-borne contaminants from entering the critical area (Source: Dr C. Clibbon, GSK).

Where to use Dycem Floor mats

  • Inside airlocks, gowning rooms, air showers and material transfer areas to control and retain contamination
