Shoof Mat-In-A-Box

The perfect shoe and boot disinfectant mat for people who are visiting or moving on and off farms and need a mobile disinfection facility. They reduce the chances of transporting disease and contamination.

The Mat-In-A-Box has a 30mm foam-core mat, encased in a sturdy polyethylene box with a lid. The mat can be pre-filled with solution, but will not spill, as the mat takes up all the liquid. The Mat-In-A-Box is then simply placed on the ground when required. No risk of spillage in your vehicle.

Alternatively the Mat-In-A-Box can be used at the entrance to sensitive premises and kept covered when not required. Click the video here to learn more.

Dimensions: 58cm (W) x 39cm (D) x 5cm (H)
Capacity: 2.5 Litres
Dry weight: 4 kg

Shoof Vehicle Disinfection Mat

For vehicle entrances to farms and disease-sensitive properties. This extremely durable mat can be placed at the main entrance, so that all vehicles in and out pass over it. The Shoof Vehicle dinfectant Mat is sized to allow all tyres to do a full rotation on the mat. Longer or custom sizes are available. 

Strong enough to handle all sized vehicles from light cars to heavy trucks, the upper surface is made from a woven polypropylene mesh. The bottom surface is made from 620gsm reinforced PVC fabric for durability and to reduce seepage.

The mat works by hydraulically forcing disinfectant liquid up betwen the treads of the tyres. This action created by the weight of the vehicle over the mat.

The inner core is segmented into pockets containing 30mm PU re-bond foam which provides a very effective liquid hydraulic effect. The leading and trailing edges are stitched flat to provide a thin profile to allow small wheels to pass over the mat smoothly whilst picking up the disinfectant held in the inner foam.

The mat is provided in two halves for ease of installation and transportation. The mat can be secured to the entranceway through 12mm stainless eyelets or be left unsecured.

These mats can be placed at doorways and building entrances.

Sweetmat Disinfection Mats function by utilising the hydraulic pressure created when standing on them, thus causing the disinfectant solution to rise upward through the treads of the footwear. There is no danger of flooding or damaging footwear as might occur in a standard foot bath.

The Sweetmat Disinfection Mat can be used with any disinfectant or sanitiser.

Disinfection Mats feature an upper surface made from a permeable fabric which enables disinfection of footwear or anything crossing over it. However, this permeable fabric allows very little organic matter to penetrate the mat surface, meaning there is little chance of neutralisation of the disinfectant solution and keeps your disinfectant at the correct concentration. The bottom surface and sides use a non-permeable antibacterial PVC to prevent leakage or leaching of disinfectant solution onto the ground, meaning less waste occurs. All mats have a 30mm inner core of bonded-urethane foam.

To use simply place your mat at your entrance upon a smooth and level floor surface. Pour your solution onto the upper surface of the mat where it will be immediately absorbed by the inner foam core. When foot traffic passes over the mat, the solution is passed onto the footwear.  To clean, place mat on its edge and hose off, then leave to drain.
