Abstract

A mat includes a fabric body and an anti-slip member. The fabric body has top and bottom faces and a plurality of interwoven weft and warp strings. The anti-slip member has a plurality of spaced apart anti-slip string lines interlaced with the fabric body and lying over a bottom surface of the fabric body.

Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The invention relates to a mat, more particularly to a mat having an anti-slip effect.
  • 2. Description of the Related Art
  • A conventional mat put on a floor or on a tabletop includes a water-absorbent fabric, and an anti-slip layer adhered to a bottom side of the water-absorbent fabric via, for example, glue so as to provide an anti-slip effect to the mat.
  • However, since the anti-slip layer is impermeable to water and air, it will block water flowing from the water-absorbent fabric, which may cause the production of fungus and foul odor. Furthermore, moisture accumulated on the anti-slip layer will cause delamination of the water-absorbent fabric from the anti-slip layer. Therefore, the service life of the conventional mat is relatively short.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • Therefore, the object of the present invention is to provide a mat which has an anti-slip effect, and which is improved in terms of permeability and service life.
  • The mat according to this invention includes a fabric body and an anti-slip member. The fabric body has top and bottom surfaces and a plurality of interwoven weft and warp strings. The anti-slip member has a plurality of spaced apart anti-slip string lines interlaced with the fabric body and lying over the bottom surface of the fabric body.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • Other features and advantages of the present invention will become apparent in the following detailed description of the preferred embodiments with reference to the accompanying drawings, of which:
  • FIG. 1 is a fragmentary perspective view of the preferred embodiment of the mat according to this invention;
  • FIG. 2 is a fragmentary schematic bottom view of the preferred embodiment; and
  • FIG. 3 is a fragmentary sectional view of the preferred embodiment.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
  • Referring to FIGS. 1, 2 and 3, the mat of the preferred embodiment of this invention is shown to include a fabric body 2 and an anti-slip member 3. The fabric body 2 has top and bottom surfaces 25,26 and a plurality of interwoven weft and warp strings 22,21. Each of the weft and warp strings 22,21 includes a plurality of slightly twisted yarns 23, like a roving.
  • The anti-slip member 3 has a plurality of spaced apart anti-slip string lines 31 interlaced with the fabric body 2 and lying over the bottom surface 26 of the fabric body 2. Specifically, the weft and warp strings 22,21 form a plurality of intersection points 24, and each of the anti-slip string lines 31 extends into the fabric body 2 by passing between the weft and warp strings 22,21 at some of the intersection points 24 and without extending through the top surface 25 of the fabric body 2, thereby interlocking with the fabric body 2. It should be noted that the anti-slip string lines 31 can be formed by a single anti-slip string or by a plurality of anti-slip strings. In this embodiment, the anti-slip string lines 31 are made of polypropylene, and extend substantially in the same direction. Each of the weft and warp strings 22,21 has a width larger than that of each of the anti-slip string lines 31.
  • When the mat of this invention is put to use, since the anti-slip string lines 31 are exposed at a bottom side of the fabric body 2 to establish contact with a floor or a tabletop, a satisfactory anti-slip effect can be provided thereby. Furthermore, since the air and water permeability of the fabric body 2 is not blocked by the anti-slip member 3, the problem of the production of fungus and foul odor as encountered in the prior art can be avoided. Additionally, since the anti-slip string lines 31 interlock the fabric body 2 by interlacing, rather than by adhering, the delamination problem encountered in the prior art can be avoided, and the service life of the mat can be improved. Moreover, since the anti-slip member 3 is provided with the spaced apart anti-slip string lines 31, rather than by a whole anti-slip layer, the cost for making the mat can be reduced.
  • While the present invention has been described in connection with what is considered the most practical and preferred embodiment, it is understood that this invention is not limited to the disclosed embodiment but is intended to cover various arrangements included within the spirit and scope of the broadest interpretation so as to encompass all such modifications and equivalent arrangements.
