2.Other safety features of KATA Mats

Besides carefully choosing the material, KATA also puts strong emphasis on the design of KATA Mats to provide extra safety for consumers. Generally, when experiencing wet condition such as rain or snow, stepping on a flat surface would make occupants easier to fall. Therefore, KATA Mats have rougher surface in different pattern to create friction between occupants’ feet and the car mats to reducing the risk of slippage. Furthermore, the underside of KATA Mats are equipped with small nubs to stop them from sliding around and causing accidents for drivers and passengers. Although helping the mats to grip firmly onto the car floor, these small nubs are made from plastic and have round shape so they surely cannot damage the refined cabin of Hyundai Kona.

Without the retention system, car mats may slide toward, stuck under the brake pedal or accelerate the gas pedal and unintentionally cause accidents for owners. Thus, it is really important to have these holes on the floor mats for cars.  Another safety feature of KATA Mats lies on their edge. KATA Mats have the edge bound with nylon while KATA Mats Pro’s edge is heat-pressed for the purpose of preventing it from curling up so that customers will not trip or fall when getting in or out of the vehicle.
