The Epica Bath Mat is helping me minimize the risk of slips and falls when I get in and out of the tub. The mat is made especially to prevent the growth of bacteria, which means that it not only helps keep us from falling but keeps us from being exposed to nasty gunk under our feet. I love that.
It's made from a heavy duty, latex free rubber, so it will hold up to a lots of use and abuse. This thing is substantial. When it arrived in the mail, I was surprised at how heavy it was. But it went down on the tub floor easily and it has stayed put the whole time; no shifting or slipping or give. It measures 16" x 28", which is good sized and works in almost any tub.
The underside has a ton of little suction cups. Most mats have larger sized ones, but these smaller ones really make a big difference. Since there are so many, most of the mat is kept securely held to the tub floor which gives you more security knowing it's not going to move. Plus they are made to adhere to even non-slip surfaces, so it will work in any style tub or shower floor.
You can see that the floor of my tub is made to be a non-slip surface, with texture built into it. The mat went onto the surface and has not moved, even after a lot of showering and one very large dog bounding in and out!
The top has a great texture that does not bother you feet but gives you a little extra traction while you are moving around. It just really adds to the feeling of security while you are showering. The texture also helps repel slippery soap residue. It's harder for it to build up on the surface, helping to not only keep your footing more secure, but making it easier to keep clean.
This is a great bath mat and I would highly recommend it to you!
