Anti-Rat Flooring From Hammer Technologies

Every year an incredible amount of damage is done to humans property by rats and at the moment there is very little we can do to prevent it. A paper from 2009 demonstrated a fascinating fact. Even though we have been trapping and repelling rats for many years there is still in the region of $9 billion worth of damage to property every year. This figure applies to North America alone and so the current figure for the whole world will be dramatically higher than this.

Anti-Rat Flooring From Hammer Technologies

Hammer Technologies have taken this problem seriously. They have developed a new anti-rat flooring device. It is capable of creating a perimeter around your property which the rats will not pass.

This new product is patented and is totally unique.  The rats may be trying to get to food, or shelter which is the reason they may be passing through your garage or outbuildings. They often do plenty of damage along the way, chomping on fabrics, plastics and consumables. If they damage your production machinery or your car you may be out of pocket for some time as a result. Insurance may not cover you and so you may need to cover the costs of damage yourself. Don't forget you may also need to hire a car or find another way of meeting your deadlines.

Alternatively you could try to rat-proof your garage or factory but this could take a very long time and cost a lot of money. Even having put in so much time and effort you can be sure that if you miss just one hole, the rats will find it. Don't waste your money trying; invest in Hammer Technologies' new device instead.

RatMat Launched At PestTech 2018

Hammer Technologies were excited to launch the RatMat with Killgerm at PestTech on the 7th of November 2018. We were proud to be invited to be part of Killgerm’s awesome stand at the exhibition and were overwhelmed by the positive response we received. The footfall at the stand was probably the highest at the show and interest in the RatMat was high. Many people were excited that the product would be able to solve problems which were proving difficult. Damage to combine harvesters and ingress of rodents through factory and commercial unit doors were issues which came up several times. RatMat is an ideal solution to these problems.

It was mentioned several times that it has been decades since a true innovation has come to pest control and that many new products were just rehashes of old products. A significant number of the pest controllers we spoke to were optimistic that the RatMat could revolutionise pest management in several areas, particularly agriculture and food manufacture. Recent legislation is limiting the use of rodenticides which is reducing the options for pest control experts. RatMat gives them another solution which is humane, effective and cost-effective.
