WaterHog Forklift Mat

Product Number 1253
WaterHog Forklift mats effectively remove moisture and dirt from forklift wheels to minimize tracking and potential slip hazards.  They are ideal for use in areas where forklifts enter and exit buildings.
  • Durable - Reinforced rubber nubs, backing, and fabric top are designed to withstand forklift traffic up to 14,000 pounds
  • Clean and Dry - Bi-level surface removes dirt and moisture from wheels and trap it to minimize tracking
  • Easy to Install - Mats are easy to install and scalable for large applications; aggressive adhesive taping system (sold separately) keeps tiles from moving
  • Eco-Friendly - PET fabric (24 ounces/yard2) is made from at least 90% recycled content reclaimed from plastic, and SBR rubber backing contains 20% recycled rubber from car tires
  • Available in 6 colors with 100-mil SBR smooth rubber backing
  • WaterHog Forklift mats should be installed with double-sided tape (not included)

WaterHog Forklift mats can be cleaned using the following instructions:

  • Vacuum regularly (daily in high-traffic commercial areas; weekly in lower-traffic areas)
  • Extract or hose off as needed to remove heavy soil/debris
  • Hang mat to dry

Always make sure the mat is dry before placing it back in service.

  1. Place the mat face down with the rubber backing side up.
  2. Place double-sided tape (sold separately) along all four sides of the tile, as close to the edge as possible. The sticky side goes on the rubber with the blue side facing up.
  3. Add more tape inside the rectangle. Create an X by placing tape from one corner diagonally to the opposite corner.(Note: 1 roll of double-sided tape will cover 3 WaterHog Forklift tiles)
  4. Place the tile in the desired position.  Carefully fold one half of the tile back, exposing the blue tape.
  5. Remove the blue liner and trim back to the folded area. Then fold that half back into place and repeat on the other side.
  6. To secure the bond between the tape and the tile, apply pressure by walking around each side of the tile.
