At Bear Slide Golf Club we have over 1,700 feet of wood bridges. PEM matting has helped us reduce the risk of our guests slipping and getting injured as our bridges can be very slick when wet.

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.

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.

If you have any input to your greens committee, I highly recommend P.E.M. Golf Course Matting. At our club, we have used a multitude of railroad ties for paths and steps. Upon making soft spikes mandatory, players were constantly slipping on the ties. After several hip, shoulder and knee injuries, we soon saw an urgency to solve the problem, and we were fortunate to find P.E.M. Golf Course Matting. The product looks great, doesn't fade, and gives tremendous footing. Quite a savings over replacing the railroad ties! It can also be used to cover cart paths in play, as it greatly reduces the bounce of the golf ball!

A Great Product!

This letter is written to advise you of the City of Maplewood's experience with the use of PEM Aquatic matting under the two play features in the City of Maplewood's outdoor zero depth entry swimming pool at 7550 Lohmeyer Avenue. The product has been in place for the last two pool seasons.

  --  There have been no signs of deterioration.
  --  No special cleaning has been needed to maintain the sanitation or appearance.
  --  The application has met the city's need for a softer surface for falls from the two play features.
  --  No deficiencies have been noted by the St. Louis County, the local inspection authority.

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 P.E.M. that covers our varsity baseball field fencing has held up in outstanding fashion and adds a great dimension to player safety, as well as tremendous esthetic dominance. The matting used in the interior back wall of our dugouts greatly reduces wear on uniform shirts.

The large concrete areas in front of our stadium bleachers that are covered with the P.E.M. have really served our cheerleaders well in providing a safe and beautiful cheerleaders "pad" for their activities.

The P.E.M. specifically designed for our tennis courts as "windscreen" has performed beautifully with exceptional durability.

In all of these areas, I have found that the quality and performance of the P.E.M. to be outstanding. All of the areas are subject to severe heat, cold, and sun light. The P.E.M. has held up beautifully and I hope to add the P.E.M. product to other areas of our facility in the near future as our budgets allow. Some of the other areas I have in the plans, include the swimming pool area, the weight room, shower and locker rooms, etc.

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.

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 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.

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!

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.

Here at Valhalla, we have many bridges and I seemed to get a call every time it rained on someone slipping. The P.E.M. Golf Course Matting solved our problems and the best part is that it drains and helps in preserving the wood. Itís helped our members as well as the best players in the world.

Thank You,

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. Itís still as pliable as the first day we installed it. Itís constantly exposed to water and is pressure washed weekly, the easy drainage has prevented any moisture problems, and weíve had no mold or mildew problems at all. The scrap pieces are used in boats and around our docks, where theyíre 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!

The PEM non-slip surfaces have made a big impact on the safety of our events, and the swimmers really appreciate that!

Excellent product! We have been using P.E.M. Aquatic Matting since 2002. The product is easy to cut into any configuration with no chance of a trip hazard. You can conveniently custom cut any size mat off a roll and put a round edge on it. We at our YMCA facility use the mats in our locker rooms, showers, and pool areas. Our custodians appreciate the fact that the lightweight mat is easy to lift and handle during cleaning.
