Where Should You Use Interlocking Anti Fatigue Mats?

By Paige Cerulli Created: August, 2021 - Modified: October, 2023

When you’re spending long periods of time on your feet, your flooring choice can make a difference in your comfort. Interlocking anti fatigue mats are versatile flooring choices that you can use in many different ways.

What Are Interlocking Anti Fatigue Mats?

Interlocking anti fatigue mats are modular flooring systems that offer a cushioned, softer surface that helps to relieve muscle fatigue and strain. They’re often used in locations where people spend long periods of time standing.

Because these mats connect together, they’re highly versatile and easy to install. Rather than dealing with cutting flooring rolls to fit, these tiles can be easily fit into smaller areas. Most can also be cut with a sharp utility knife if needed.

The interlocking design also means that these mats can be removed if needed. They can be moved to a new location and reinstalled, ensuring you’ll get plenty of use out of them.

The ability to replace just one or two mats is a major advantage if some mats become worn or damaged. Thanks to their interlocking design, you can replace just one or two mats, keeping the flooring in good condition while saving money over the cost of replacing the entire floor.

Ways to Best Use Interlocking Anti Fatigue Mats

Interlocking anti fatigue mats can serve many purposes, and depending on the mats’ qualities, you can install them in different environments.

These mats are popular for:
  • Chef stations and restaurant flooring
  • Laboratory stations
  • Workshop areas
  • Machining stations
  • Distribution centers
  • Assembly lines
  • Cashier checkout lanes
  • Basements
  • Kids’ play spaces
  • Gyms and athletic spaces
  • Trade show booths

As you shop for anti fatigue mats, think about the types of challenges that are present in the area where you’ll be using them. If moisture is present, then you’ll need to look for mats that are waterproof.

If you’re expecting significant water in an area, then consider looking for mats that are perforated or raised. These designs let water flow beneath the mats, helping to keep workers up and out of the water and contributing to overall safety.

Industrial and utility areas often expose the mats to oils and even chemicals. It’s important to buy mats that are resistant to these substances.

If you’ll be using the mats in a commercial application, then be sure to look for a heavy duty option that’s designed to withstand the traffic and significant use these areas often see.
