Winter Facility Care Starts with a Sound Matting System
FREMONT, OH — With much of North America covered by snow and ice, now is the perfect time to review one of the most effective ways to keep facilities clean and healthy during the winter months.
According to Dennis Knapp, national sales director for Crown Mats and Matting, "An effective matting system is your best defense against adverse winter weather, preventing sand, rock salt, moisture and other contaminants from entering a facility ...
