Designer Scott Key has developed a line of emergency floor mats that address the issue of flooring in post-disaster areas. In the aftermath of natural disasters, many individuals are forced to sleep on the ground in overcrowded shelters. Unfortunately these sleeping conditions can expose people to vermin, hypothermia and infectious diseases.

To combat the problem, Key developed a product called 'Emergency Floor.' The flooring is made from repurposed materials and is designed to offer a low-cost flooring solution for post-disaster zones. The emergency floor mats are both durable and comfortable, making them ideal for lining temporary shelters and camps.

For many disaster relief companies, food and medical care take precedence over the issue of flooring. Emergency Floor helps to address this critical gap by using its own product to make refugee-filled areas a safer place to sleep.
