The patented WaterMat® Pro is a portable float that just about any water-based professional can use to make their work easier and safer. When every second counts, First Responders would say the FEMA-certified WaterMat Pro "is a lifesaver."
Current uses and applications include:
Ice rescue deployment for First Responders
Off-shore standing post for Life Guards
Floating equipment base for SCUBA Instructors
Portable work platform for boat maintenance
Because it is a genuine WaterMat, it doesn't need to be inflated, assembled and has no sharp edges. The durable WaterMat Pro weighs just 61 lbs. but has a surface area of over 125 square feet and is rated to support over 1800 lbs. of gear or people.
Make no mistake: This product is built for the professional. The bright orange WaterMat Pro is covered in heat laminated, extra- tough poly mesh material. The Pro uses our Double Grommet System for stability and security. It is stitched with a high tensile thread around the circumference of the product. Each end has straps that are used for handles, tie-down spots, and/or anchor points.
