Prior to changing over to a "soft spikes" policy at the end of 1997, all our matting was that stiffed ribbed rubber. However, if the dew was heavy, heavy frost or rain, these mats were extremely slippery. In our pursuit to replace these mats and experimenting with a few different types, we found that P.E.M. Golf Course Matting was the best. No slipping, easy to clean and easy to install. I could recommend this product to anyone with a similar need.

We are a year round Marina on Shasta Lake in sunny California. We have been using your product for 5 years on our Gas Dock.

We are extremely pleased with its performance. In the 5 years of constant exposure to Petroleum products, extreme weather conditions and heavy foot traffic, it still looks and feels brand new. There has been no fading or tearing, no unraveling. It’s still as pliable as the first day we installed it. It’s constantly exposed to water and is pressure washed weekly, the easy drainage has prevented any moisture problems, and we’ve had no mold or mildew problems at all. The scrap pieces are used in boats and around our docks, where they’re needed, no waste.

We are very pleased with PEM Surface and plan to use more of it around our Marina. Thank you for making such a quality product!

I own and operate a very busy horse-drawn carriage company in the downtown St. Louis area. Over the years we have tried various products to minimize the urine and ammonia odor on the cobblestone streets where we offer our tours. Nothing seemed to work! In June 1998, I attended Equitana '98' and picked up some of your company's literature. Upon returning to St, Louis, I purchased a bottle of B.E.S.T. Odor Control Spray and tried it on the streets. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The ammonia and urine odor was completely eliminated. Thanks B.E.S.T. for solving this on-going problem!

The purpose of this letter is to relay our satisfaction on the P.E.M. Aquatic Matting product we purchased from you for use in our pool bath house. Previous to using your product the flooring was slick for the most part and unpleasant to look at from the publics standpoint. I believe the application of your product reduced our liability as well as greatly improved the appearance.

Thank you for the excellent service your company provided throughout the process of purchase and installation. We look forward to future opportunities to use your excellent product and service. Thanks again for a job well done!

Mayacama Golf Club is a walking only golf course complimented by a professional caddie program. We focus on maintaining a quality walking experience.

Numerous stairways and wooden bridges are used to access greens, tees and fairways and we use PEM Golf Course Matting on all surfaces to provide a non-slip surface for our members, guests, and caddies, on the golf course. The matting provides excellent footing for players wearing spikes and ensures a safe working environment for our caddies in all weather conditions.

Additionally, the matting has an excellent aesthetic quality that we are happy to incorporate into the look and feel of our walking experience on the golf course.

The PEM Playground Surface is a hit according to the parents whose children were using the playground when I stopped by a few weeks ago.

They commented that their youngsters were actually dry after a rain a few days earlier, and that this would not have happened with the mulch we used to have under the playground equipment.

The mulch was a good alternative to sand, and I think the PEM surfacing will be a good alternative to the mulch, because of the cost of the special mulch, and the labor to keep it to the proper height per ADA & ASTM requirements.

People can now use wheel chairs on this surface, which was hard to use with mulch, if at all.

I believe with just a little training my staff should be able to install the surfacing ourselves, like we do with the other PEM matting, that we use at the pools, ball fields, concessions, and restrooms.

Thanks again for working with me.

We have used the matting in the parks, pools, and golf course since 1999. I personally like it in the outdoor restrooms as the blue brightens up the restroom and it is very easy to clean. I even use strips along the backstops of our ball fields to save money over replacing the wood base. The coaches and umps like the way the matting reduces ball bounce compared to the wood. I have and will continue to recommend PEM to my peers.

The Rosemont Park District was searching for a good surface for our Splash Pad. We fount it in P.E.M. The surface is comfortable on your feet and it is not slippery. The water drains well, and it is easy to clean. We are going into our 4th season and it still looks great and we have never had a problem with it.

Woodland Marina installed your blue P.E.M. marina material on our gas dock a few years ago, it has proven to be a very durable and safe product for the area, which endures a lot of wear and weather.

We are very pleased with the product and look forward to doing business with you and your company in the near future.

The Charleston Boat Club installed your Blue Mat material on its primary access walkways last year, and it has proven very satisfactory. To date, the material shows very little wear and we are able to keep it clean without a great deal of expense.

We have ordered additional Blue Marina Mat for use in other areas of our facility and look forward to receiving the shipment as soon as possible.

Over a year ago I began using B.E.S.T. System in my barn, I have a ten stall barn with everything from ponies to old brood mares, from polo ponies to jumpers and just pleasure pets.

The initial introduction of B.E.S.T. to the barn took some time but looking back only minimal, compared to the time saving advantages. We began the process by leveling all the stalls with chat and saturated the floor with the odor control. Then we placed the matting over the top, cut to fit the mat, and put shavings on top. I managed to move the mats all by myself After that the stall was good to go. We have used them daily and everything worked well. Because of the construction of the mat, once it is in place there were no more urine pools. The porosity of the mat allowed the natural drainage of the stall to work properly. Now whenever people come to visit the barn. They all remark on the fact that the barn is clean and they can not really "smell" barn odor at all.

During the summer the B.E.S.T. odor control is used in the ceiling spray system. Once used for Fly spray. It not only controls the odor, but by doing so helps minimize the fly population. During the winter months I use a portable mister once a week in each stall for a few minutes to accomplish results similar to the ceiling spray system.

I have also used the mats in wash room, grooming area, as well as taking them to horse shows for the porta-stalls. Speaking of shows. You know that "clean;" smell you get when you wash sheets, blankets and wraps which end up clean, but still "smell of stall" (urine). Just add a, little BEST odor control to the rinse water and that smell is gone.

Needless to say after all the other products I have used to help eliminate odor in the barn they can't touch the results I experienced using B.E.S.T. odor control. I used a little over 1 gallon for the barn for the entire year.

I strongly recommend the use of both products in the B.E.S.T. system for everyone to use. They enhance the overall barn environment, for both horse and human. Please call any time with your questions.

I would like to personally thank you for your extraordinary effort in helping us solve our bridge problem. Fortunately for us, you arrived on our doorstep in the nick of time. The new aquatic portion of our facility opened with an overwhelming success rate. With success comes unexpected and unanticipated safety concerns.

Our maintenance department installed your P.E.M. Aquatic Matting product on our bridge. I no longer have to worry about clientele slipping and or falling on the bridge while moving from one aquatic feature to another.

Your solution of the P.E.M. Aquatic Matting was quick, economical and aesthetically pleasing.

Thank you for your assistance.

Prior to hosting the 2008 BMW Championship here at Bellerive, we were looking for a quality, functional and aesthetically pleasing surface cover for the existing foot bridges on the course. The PEM material fit our needs perfectly. No more slipping with soft spikes and the surface blends well with the surroundings.

We had a lot of steps, wooden walkways and bridges that were of concern when the club decided to go spikeless. The P.E.M. Golf Course Matting was easily installed on these areas and the members love it. Water drains right through the mat, and it provides excellent traction for spikeless traffic. The PVC construction also greatly reduces golf ball bounce on high impact areas, around greens and fairways. The rubber matting I tried was always wet on the underside and slippery when moist. All of the rubber was replaced with the P.E.M. Golf Course Matting. I think it will truly last for many years.

We discovered P.E.M. Aquatic Matting about four years ago for use in our aquatic center and outdoor bath houses. They are easy to clean with a hose or "Hotsy" pressure washer and dry quickly. Once our patrons tried our matting they wanted it in other areas of our health club. We have yet to find a better product!

Your horse mats have been installed in our barn about 6 months now. (The last set of another product lasted only two years, and the manufacturer said we were on our own.) From what I see after 6 months, our mats, (three stalls, one wash stall, and one central aisleway) are looking as good as the day they were installed last fall.

I am convinced your product will last over 10 years. They are as pliable as the day they were installed, and show no signs of wear to date. They do not get slick like other mats. They keep the sound down, dissipate water in the wash stall so we don't get as wet as our horses, and they look great. They are the talk of our horse community, Christmas Valley. Our neighbors installed your mat in a foaling stall, and we now have a foal in the valley.

Thanks for developing a great product that you can easily install yourself. If anyone wants to see how they look, tell them to check out your web site: www.aba-mat.com and look for our green mats, they coordinate great with our barn.
