Anti-Microbial Sticky Mat For Fitness Center

Anti-Microbial Sticky Mat For Fitness Center

Our Basketball Sticky Mat has proprietary anti-microbial agent that is in the adhesive, and it prohibits the reproduction of the mircoorganism. The goal is PREVENTION of microorganisms from entering controlled environments such as fitness centers.

A 2015 formal lab study shows promising result of bacteria removal in controlled environments by using Anti-Microbial Sticky Mat. A number of microbes, including Staphylococcus aures, were tested through various experiments. After establishing the test methodology and setting various parameters, the results began to reveal meaningful trends. For the Staphylococcus aures bacteria, it was observed that the adhesive contamination control sticky mats achieved a removal rate of 85%, whereas the prevention rate stood at 99.7%. Likewise, for Aspergillus niger, the removal and prevention rates stood at 97% and 99.9%, respectively. The anti-microbial adhesive contamination control sticky mats prevented significantly more microorganisms from entering a potential protected zone than the negative control surfaces.

Sticky Mat with Anti-Microbial adhesive is for use in facilities where control of bacterial growth is a concern.

Anti-Microbial Sticky Mats can effectively resist a wide range of organisms including:


Achromobacter parvulus
Alcaligenes faecalls

Fitness center users sweating over the various machines and sharing equipment with strangers, it’s no surprise that fitness centers are among the biggest germ hotspots out there. Germs spread in this environment fairly easily, because bacteria jump from our skin onto anything we touch – including weights, machines, punchbags and all gym equipment. Users normally enter with street shoes which introduce even more harmful microbials to fitness center floors. Viruses and bacteria floating in the air eventually drop with dust to the floor. Floor decontamination with Walk-off Anti-Microbial Sticky Mat becomes an effective and necessary measure to safe guard various passage and entrance areas in the fitness center.

One of the most common germs hiding in gyms is the staphylococcus bacteria. A dangerous strain, MRSA – Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a group of Gram-positive bacteria that are genetically distinct from other strains of Staphylococcus aureus. MRSA is responsible for several difficult to treat infections in humans. It caused more than 100,000 deaths attributable to antimicrobial resistance in 2019. CDC reports ( that MRSA can spread easily in fitness center, athletic facilities, locker rooms, gyms, and health clubs because of shared equipment and skin-to-skin contact. Fitness centers need to keep all surfaces clean to prevent MRSA from spreading.

While there are many different types of mold on earth, one of the most common and concerning is Aspergillus niger. This is generally believed to be the most common form of fungi in the world with more than 200 species having been identified. While many of these specifies are only mildly allergenic or completely harmless, there are some that are incredibly dangerous to humans and have been known to cause acute and chronic infection and disease, which is why so many people are interested in how to kill Aspergillus niger. MBL Laboratories (, states that this type of mold is concerning because it can be inhaled and then penetrate deep into a person’s lungs. The small size of the spores makes it difficult for people to clean their homes and eliminate the mold on their own. People are always wondering how to eliminate mold, especially because Aspergillus niger can so easily grow on many different substances. This mold can grow in areas without many nutrients, making it incredibly hardy. A niger is able to form fungal balls deep in lungs, which will grow and cause respiratory symptoms.

Walk-Off Anti-Microbial Sticky Mat is an important preventive measure to trap these dangerous germs and molds at the entrance and keep them from produce and does not continue travel with foot traffic.
