Nowadays, we need to be smart about how and where we spend our pesos. This is especially true this coming Christmas season.

We would want to save or invest the rest of our bonuses, right?

Safety Matting is Extremely Important

Safety Matting is Extremely Important

Safety is of prime importance in any type of facility, whether it is industrial, commercial, businesses, schools, restaurants, hotels and motels, nursing or assisted living homes, warehouses, fitness centers, gyms, walkways, entrances, playgrounds, wet areas, and other locations which are heavily used and require the addition of a preventive measure.

Why Are Floor Mats So Needed?

Floor mats are among the safety necessities required in order to protect workers, visitors, and the floors themselves. AntiFatigue mats keep workers’ legs and feet comfortable and cut down on absences from work caused by the resultant aches and pains from having to do a lot of standing. In addition, non-slip mats reduce slip and fall injuries by both workers and customers who come to the business or facility.

What Types of Matting Are Available?

More than 30 years of first-rate experience in the industry learning about the requirements to accommodate a safe environment has resulted in a very wide selection of high quality durable and affordable matting products. Competitive prices are maintained, especially with one choice being recycled rubber mats.


Combining sales with the added benefit of actually manufacturing many of the mats results in being able to keep pricing down for customers who have to operate within a predetermined budget. Examples of such mats are Grip Rock, Super G, Grip Rock-Freezer, and Brite Trac slip resistant matting.


Always offered is at least a standard one-year warranty against any manufacturer's defects on all products, and some products have an even longer warranty.


Utilizing JCH International in Rome, Georgia, and its knowledgeable and friendly sales staff will assist you in the proper product and quantity selection that is right for your particular purposes.

You can get quick immediate delivery by using products in stock, or you can get help designing a logo or other unique or unusually-sized mat if you are willing to wait for your order to be completed according to your directions.. You can also obtain free samples to assist in the selection of the many colors and complete line of products.

Ways to Take the Guesswork Out Of Bidding for a Job

Regardless of the construction trade a person works in, everyone has a task they enjoy doing and a task they just hate to do. Usually, the task they enjoy doing is something they can do well. For an experienced HVAC contractor, installing duct work is a piece of cake. Then there are other tedious tasks that are frustrating to do. The challenge for contractors is understanding how to calculate and accurately charge for these types of tasks.

Most individuals who choose to work in the construction field do so because they enjoy working with their hands. They enjoy interacting with real things. They did not get this job because they wanted to be an accountant. However, as much as a contractor may hate estimating jobs and then making bids based on these estimates, it is an essential part of what they do. Being able to accurately estimate a job and being able to accurately bid for a job can mean the difference between a successful business and one that fails.

Many contractors have experiences where they get the job, do the best work they can, but because of a problem with their estimate, they either break even or walk away losing money. Mistakes associated with pricing a job will cost contractors money.

The first step in accurately estimating a job is to make sure that you include all of the materials you are going to need. For example, a plumber would need to know the pipes they're going to be using, the number of elbows they will need, and the amount of digging and excavating they will need to do for the job.

Something else to take into consideration is the number of vehicles that are going to be used on the job. Contractors should not forget to prorate the wear and tear their vehicles are going to have, depreciation of the vehicles, and fuel costs. Additionally, overhead costs need to be factored in. This includes insurance, permits, advertising, salary, and all of the other little things that contractors need in order to keep their business running.

Many contractors have seen the benefit of pre-estimating a job and then using that to create a flat rate. Electricians can show their customers the flat rate in an electrical price book. They can also show upgrades to the job that can be done for an up charge. This takes a lot of the guesswork out of bidding for a job.
