Where Can I Use Anti Fatigue Floor Mats?
Industrial, Manufacturing, or Factory Areas
The yellow safety border on the Safety Soft Foot With Dura Shield product alerts other workers about the trip hazard at the edge of the mat. It has a urethane coating that enhances its durability in an industrial setting.
A diamond tread pattern in the surface makes the Supreme Diamond mat a great choice for workers standing at a bench or workstation all day. It encourages subtle movements, which combats lower leg fatigue.
Our Diamond Foot Ergonomic mats offer diamond plate patterns, which maximizes both worker traction and softness underfoot. They have colored border edging for enhanced visibility. Additionally, these are non-flammable.
The ArmorStep mats offer durability intended for extreme applications. They're resistant to chemicals. They can withstand manufacturing environments that would degrade or damage average units.
The Safety Matta Perforated Tile is ideal for wet environments because the perforations maximize liquid drainage. If liquids are spilled, they will drain down through the raised tiles, meaning the workers' feet along the assembly line stay dry.
Garage, Laundry Room, and Workshop at Home or at a Business
In areas where damp conditions may be present, an anti-slip diamond pattern, such as is found on the Ergo Matta product line, is a key for safety. When the moisture is excessive, perforated Ergo Matta products allow the water to drain away to the subfloor, instead of sitting on top.
The Supreme Sliptech mat is a good choice in garages, where oils and grease are problematic. It also has an anti-slip texture. The closed cell memory foam maximizes comfort, and the wear layer is resistant to the majority of chemicals.
The Herongripa Matting Roll is ideal for areas where the floor can become slick, such as kitchens or other spaces that tend to contain wetness. These have an open grid construction that allows water and debris to fall through. Plus, they are grease resistant as well.
Safety Fatigue VIP mats are a popular choice for both restaurants and commercial settings, thanks to how they resist slips. They have perforations to allow liquids to drain away. They resist grease, too, which is an important feature for busy kitchens.
For areas behind a retail counter or at a cash register, a cushioned product protects the employee who must stand constantly. The Safety Soft Foot product is especially good for this purpose, as it has a yellow border edge that alerts the employee who must move on and off the mat regularly, helping to avoid a trip hazard.
For thicker mats that maximize comfort, consider the Supreme Diamond Tread Cushion product. Its ErgoFlex foam creates enhanced standing comfort.
When you want a high-quality design for your customer-facing retail area, the Marble Sof-Tyle mat has a distinctive and interesting marbleized appearance. These are incredibly easy to clean. The K-Marble Foot Fatigue product is similar, offering some different color designs.
Our BubbleFlex fatigue mat is ideal for those in an office at a standing desk, as the air pockets in the bubbled surface deliver excellent comfort.
The Ultimate Diamond Thick Cushion model has 3/4 inch thick ErgoFlex foam, offering the ultimate comfort when workers need to be able to stand for long periods of time.
