COVID-19 Response range for facilities management

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has become a global pandemic in 2020 and governments, businesses and members of the public are having to take unprecedented steps to protect themselves and others. Whilst many countries are easing their lockdowns, normal socialising is strictly prohibited. Social distancing and contamination control are effective ways to reduce the risk of the virus spreading. This range of social distancing and hygiene products from COBA is designed to help businesses operate efficiently and safely.

COBA has been providing effective, and innovative, matting and flooring solutions for over 40 years. In this time, we have expanded and refined a range of dependable products, ideal for facilities management.

Social distancing floor mats

Visual aids are key to communicate to visitors and employees your specific guidance around social distancing. The South African government’s guidance on social distancing remains 1.5 metres wherever possible. For businesses that can’t operate with 1.5 metres such as pubs and hairdressers, we have a range of smaller mats, including directional signs and other instructions around enhanced hygiene such as hand sanitisation.

Loose lay floor mats to promote social distancing, and health and hygiene awareness. Ideal for all public buildings including retail, hospitality, healthcare, supermarkets and offices.

Choose from standard designs or create your own to compliment your brand. Adding your logo creates a strong visual impact while showing customers you care.

Reduce standing fatigue

One thing that hasn’t changed since the COVID-19 pandemic reached South Africa, is that key workers across the country in supermarkets, warehouses, and manufacturing locations have stoically been attending work. Issues from standing fatigue and health ailments caused by prolonged standing haven’t gone away. We’ve updated two of our key Orthomat® products with social distancing messaging. And our newer Hygimat product is an ideal way to bring fatigue relief into hygienic sensitive locations.

Reduce cross-contamination

There has been a huge campaign of public awareness since the pandemic began and so everyone is aware the risks posed by physical contact with items that may be carrying viruses. There is perhaps less awareness around viruses and other germs being transported on people’s footwear between different buildings and departments.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, contamination control is more important now than ever before. Contamination between buildings and rooms occurs at the threshold, and all doorways have one thing in common, a doormat. Our range of tack mats and entrance mats are designed to improve hygiene and reduce walked in bacteria and other particles.
