Interlocking Anti Fatigue Mats
Fatigue Relieving Floor Tiles - Foam, Rubber, & PVC
When seeking to create a type of flooring that delivers cushioning for people who are standing and doing a repetitive task or for people doing athletic workouts, interlocking anti fatigue mats from Greatmats are a great selection.
These tiles connect together without the need for glue or adhesive, which greatly simplifies installation. They deliver the best mixture of firmness to provide support to the lower body while also delivering cushioning that protects the knee, hip, and ankle joints.
Size and Shape Options
The majority of our interlocking anti fatigue mats consist of squares, which greatly simplifies the installation process. Calculating the number of tiles required to do the job is an easy process.
Our square tiles will range in size between 1x1 foot and 2x2 feet. A few other sizes are available as well, such as 18x18 inches. When covering a large space, making use of larger individual tiles will make the installation go faster.
We also offer a few rectangular-shaped tiles that provide a slightly different look.
If you’d prefer a kit that gives you a specific amount of overall coverage space, we offer this option as well. Some of our kits of interlocking anti fatigue mats can cover spaces as small as 3x3 feet or as large as 20x30 feet, as well as coverage spaces in between.
Multiple types of materials will deliver the benefits of anti fatigue flooring for almost any use case.
PVC plastic is a popular selection, as it delivers a combination of firmness and cushioning for athletic or step workouts. It is highly durable, giving customers a good value.
Rubber is another popular selection for anti fatigue flooring tiles. It doesn’t offer a lot of color options, but it is very durable and creates a sure footing for anyone using it. Rubber is waterproof, making it a smart choice in areas where water may appear, such as in a laundry room.
EVA foam tiles work well as interlocking anti fatigue mats. For a change of pace, some people prefer the warmth and cushioning found with foam tiles that have a nice-looking carpet layer bonded to the top.
Pattern and Texture Options
In addition to offering numerous material choices, our interlocking anti fatigue mats deliver many options for textures and patterns.
With PVC plastic tiles, customers can select from a wide range of neutral and bright colors. Other options, such as carpet and rubber, will only be available in neutral colors, such as gray and black.
With foam tiles, the manufacturer can give them a variety of looks through a printed layer on top, including simulated wood grain patterns.
Regarding textures and designs, some PVC plastic and rubber tiles will contain perforations that extend through the entire thickness of the tile, allowing water to drain away.
Wearwell rubber tiles that we offer sometimes include a gritty texture attached to the top that delivers extra traction in wet conditions.
Common Use Options
Customers can deploy our interlocking anti fatigue mats in a wide variety of locations. They perform especially well in any area where someone must stand and work for long periods of time or where athletic workouts will be occurring.
In an area with a floor drain where liquid spills may be common, such as along an assembly line, perforated tiles are a good choice.
In a family room that doubles as a workout space, having carpeted tiles with a foam backing may be a desirable selection. The carpet will look great, and the foam backing gives those doing a workout the cushioning they want.
Some people will install these tiles in a basement over the top of cement, creating a safer, softer space for workouts versus a concrete floor.
Installing these tiles is an easy process. The majority of them make use of interlocking edges that allow the installer to pop the mats together securely without the need to add glue to the edges or underneath the tiles.
When creating a wall-to-wall installation, the installer can cut the tiles with a utility knife to create a straight edge that will fit against the wall.
We also offer kits that cover a certain amount of square footage. When ordering a kit, there’s no need to cut any of the tiles to fit, as they are pre-sized.
Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements
The specific cleaning process required for these tiles will depend on the material used.
For general, daily cleaning, just sweep the mats with a broom or run a vacuum cleaner over the top. (The carpet tiles will require vacuuming.) Removing dry debris frequently will prevent any soils from grinding into the material as people walk across the mats.
For a more thorough cleaning, mop the surface of the tiles with a neutral-pH cleaning solution. If you are using perforated tiles in an area that has a floor drain, you can wash the tiles with a gentle power washer or with a garden hose and sprayer.
For the carpet tiles, use a carpet cleaning machine to remove stubborn soils.
