Interesting facts about KOMO
KOMO is a german manifacturer for ergonomic workstation mats. This flooring made of rubber or polyurethane ensures healthy and comfortable standing for employees and increases workplace safety.
In the following section, we describe the specific features and benefits of ergonomic KOMO workplace mats.
defintion of physical ergonomics: the science of designing user interaction with equipment and workplaces to fit the user.
In this regard it is important to ensure an efficient and accurate work process and also to prevent health issues for the staff, even at longterm execution of their activities.
Our primary objective is Ergonomics. In material and design of every floor mat, we attach great importance to reach the highest ergonomic values as possible.
KOMO and Ergonomics
Every workplace makes individual demands to the human body, which is not designed for standing on hard floors. Thus workplaces requiring standing, walking and turning are a challenge for workers’ bodies. The consequences are cold feet, tired and heavy legs, arthralgia or problems with the backbone.
KOMO workplace mats are designed in a way that the body is always in motion, though hardly discernible. Thereby the blood circulation is stimulated and the leg muscles keep flexible. This means that standing is less painful, which naturally results in greater concentration and better motivation and less periods of lost hours due to sickness.
KOMO Polyurethane mats offer the highest amount of comfort, flexibility and durability. They are manufactured from Polyurethane which has been especially developed by KOMO. The KOMO outer skin is thick and highly compressed so the mats are very low in abrasion and very long life. The mats can also be laid out in humid or even wet areas.The material is unsusceptible against many chemicals, base and leach, conditionally acid- and oil resistant. Very insulating against coldness.
Quality 'made in Germany'
KOMO rubber mats are available in many variations.
Synthetic rubber made out of Nitrile (NBR):
oil- and chemical resistand, long durability.
Mats with very low abraison.
Natural rubber (NR):
highly flexible, very tear-proof, low abraison.
Every type of rubber is produced out of a special mix depending on the area it's going to be used in.
To guarantee reliability and high quality of those electronic components, special measures and precautions are necessary. Therefore KOMO produces ergonomic work station mats in the versions 'A' and 'AF'. These meet the demands of standard DIN EN 61340-5-1 and are provided with an ESD badge, Bleeder 5 x 107 Ω. The versions 'a' and 'aF' feature antistatic equipment, Bleeder 109 Ω.
Depending on the planned use of the mat you can choose different surfaces:
- Knobbed surface: for workers standing and walking, performing rather rare turning moves. very flexible, foot-massaging, anti-fatigue
Products: FLEX, SOFT FLEX, Comfort S, Comfort Sg, Comfort H, Comfort KL, ECO, Combi E+M, Combi Single
- Flat knobs: for workers standing, walking and turning. With cushion knobs for an effective damping
Due to the wavy line structure and the hollow knobs with drainage channels, our mats are enormously slip-proof on slick and wet floors.
Standing safely does not only happen on the mats' surface. The bonding with the floor is also very important. The rills and hollows provide additional smoothness and comfortable standing and working.
KOMO rubber and polyurethane flooring are easy to clean. Due to its own weight they do not need to be attached to the floor. Cleaning of mat and floor is facilitated by simple removal of the mat.
All KOMO Products have molded bevelled edges which eliminate the risk of tripping and reduce the danger of stumbling - workstation safety. It also makes the mats drivable.
Comfort Sg with additional yellow bevelled outside edge for more safety.
KOMO guarantees the environmental sustainability of its products. Our manufactured materials are neutral and dermatologically harmless, therefore unproblematic to dispose.
