Antimicrobial Slip Resistant Bath Mat - Blue

The mats achieved Level 1, deemed to offer the greatest slip resistance.
Silver technology is now being widely used as an additive in the manufacturing of materials, for its antimicrobial qualities.

This StayPut bath mat is a top quality cushioned and comfortable slip resistant mat made to a generous size. Free draining with a lightly textured soft surface, and strong grip suckers underneath, which ensure a safe footing, helping to prevent foot and surface slip, as tested for the BS Standard BS8445:2012
