Disinfectant mats have long been used in the food industry, health care, agriculture and cosmetics. However, due to the impact of COVID-19 these hygienic devices have become commonplace in all types of environments: from small shops to large factories with high worker traffic.
From Reysan we have worked with different manufacturers of disinfectant mats to be able to offer you a wide catalogue with up to twenty different models:

How do disinfectant mats work?
The aim of these products is to prevent bacteria, viruses and fungi that we can carry in our shoes from entering a given environment and contaminating it. Let's see how they work:
- The first step is to place the feet with shoes on a mat made of different materials (nitrile rubber, natural rubber, polyethylene...) that create a "brush effect". This mat is impregnated with a diluted footwear disinfectant solution.
- The user must slightly rub their feet on this mat and remain on it for a few moments.
- The person then goes through a final drying mat, in this case textile, to remove any moisture left by the disinfectant.
Types of disinfection mats
As for the typology of these mats, we have two models: single disinfection mats (without drying zone) and double disinfection mats (with two zones, disinfection and drying).
Here we have the example of the Sani-Trax disinfectant mat, made up of thousands of flexible filaments that eliminate contaminating agents from any type of footwear.
On the other hand, we also have models that incorporate two types of mats in one. So that in areas of high traffic (such as the entrance to factories or shops) the mechanism can be quickly understood, we have a series of models in which clear indications of the steps to be followed appear, as you can see in these two articles: the Sani Citi S shoe kit and the Sani-Scrape'N Dry II mat.
In addition, in our special section you will find other types of devices such as footbaths and special mats for the food industry. If you need advice on your choice, do not hesitate to contact our team.
