LET’S TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE SANISTRIDE™ MAT  STATION SETUP POSSIBILITIES

The SaniStride™ Mat can be placed in a couple of different directions on the drying mat.

Sanitizing Floor Mat with disinfectant, sanimat, Antimicrobial mat deminishes the spread of MRSA and germs.

THIS “STAMP” SETUP is for 1 minute of soaking when heavy contamination is suspected. It can accommodate 2 people using the mat side by side simultaneously. This is also the suggested method for every day use as the Decon station. It is the most effective way to be certain you are diminishing the spread of bacteria and virus into the station by boot to floor contact.


When boot treads are packed with debris and possible contamination stamp gently on the mat a few times then proceed directly to the boot scraper. Before using the scraper, spray the arches and around sides of boots with the disinfectant in the spray bottle, then scrape.

THIS “STRIDE” SETUP is used when low levels or minimal contamination is suspected. This mat configuration would be used along the wall leading to the door of entry to the living quarters. Stride Two steps on the Mat then wipe boots on the drying mat. The wall and door of entry in this setup would be to the immediate left.


This “stride” configuration can also serve a dual purpose roll. Both the “stride” and “stamp” method can be used, so this setup could also serve in the  Decon station. For this a 4’x6’ drying mat will be needed underneath to provide more area for drying step off in both directions.

We strongly recommend that the Mat be placed on a 3’x5’ or 4’x6’ (4‘x6’ is more ergonomic at the  Decon station) drying carpet to avoid slipping when stepping off the Stride Mat. The drying carpet will also absorb any spills from the Mat if it has been over-charged.

ANOTHER EXTREMELY IMPORTANT SaniStride™ Mat station should be located when feasible just off the opening side of the doorway to the station’s living quarters. When used on the way into the living quarters, the Sanistride™ system will effectively diminish the spread of any remaining contamination into that area. Boot scraper is only needed at the Decon Station.

OTHER POSSIBLE PLACEMENTS of the Stride Mat can be just inside the entry doorway from the personnel parking lot, and the doorway from the station area to the clerical offices. By creating these multiple SaniStride™Mat stations, the entire personnel section of the station has now been sufficiently matted to highly diminish the spread by shoe to floor contact of bacteria and viruses in the station’s working and living environment. In this photo, entry doors to both the living/office space to the left and station from parking lot have been covered with one Mat.

“STAMP” METHOD used here when high contamination is suspected, 1 minute of soaking time will be 99.99% effective against (Accugen “kill” test) the spread of contamination by shoe to floor contact. Please note the Quat used in the mat MUST be EPA registered to be 99.99% effective against the germs targeted or obviously the mat delivery system will not be 99.99% effective against the spread of those germs.

“STRIDE” METHOD (Two steps) used here when minimal contamination is suspected, no soaking necessary. As treads of boots air dry after striding across the mat, the disinfectant will have sufficient time to be effective against the spread of contamination by shoe to floor contact.

A MAJOR THREAT for spreading contamination into an interior environment is lodged in and carried by footwear when returning from the outdoors.

To significantly diminish the chances of spreading these germs throughout the facility, it is very important to place aSaniStride™Mat DECON-TAMINATION STATION in very close proximity to the returning vehicles or door entry. In a fire station If possible, center the Mat in front of the parked vehicle. When going on call simply pass over the mat; upon return pull up to it. If there are typically two vehicles departing and returning, center the Stride Mat (maybe two mats) between them towards the front of the vehicles. These locations allow all personnel to exit the vehicles and contain footpaths to a restricted area on their way to use the mat. This small possibly contaminated floor area can be easily mopped clean with a Quaternary Ammonia concentrate diluted to disinfectant levels as well as the vehicle’s floor mats and foot peddles. At this decon station place a boot scraper to one side of the mat as well as a quart size spray bottle of diluted Quat, so any other parts (tops and bottom arches) of the boots as well as pants leg can be sprayed if contamination is a concern there. For most applications in other environments, the boot scraper, spray bottle and gallon of sanitizer is of course not necessary. We do however recommend the use of a drying mat.

 

AFTER 3 MONTHS of field testing it has been established that for Fire Station applications it is very advantageous for the Decon station to have a gallon of Quat disinfectant on standby along with the boot scraper and spray bottle. This allows the returning contaminated Fire Fighters needing to use the Mat immediately, to have the ability to quick charge the Mat if the disinfectant level is low at that time.

For ease of use, a gallon container with a handle is suggested.

When you notice the the top carpet getting full of debris as shown in above photos, simply flip it over to the clean unused side. If both sides are in need of cleaning, we recommend rinsing the insert packet off in the slop sink or hosing it off and hanging it to drip dry... the water runs out of the packet quickly. The insert once rinsed cleaned can still be damp when put back in the SaniStride™ System and recharged.
