Crown Mats and Matting, one of the largest and oldest matting companies in the U.S., proudly announces that several of its matting products have passed the National Floor Safety Institute Phase 2 Testing procedure and are now certified as providing "High-Traction."

This status means the products help contribute to a safer and healthier indoor environment, according to JoAnne Boston, business development manager for Crown Mats and Matting.
