How To Choose Your Anti Fatigue Mat
The Industrial Anti Fatigue Mats available in our range each offer their own benefits, ensuring that you can find matting that works in every environment. Below are some of the features to look out for when purchasing your mat.
Anti Fatigue Mats for Wet Floors
Is the mat to be used in a Wet Area? i.e. the mat is to be used in an industrial environment involving liquids including Water, Chemicals, Oils, Grease, etc. If so, then be aware that Foam Anti Fatigue Mats or may not be suitable for these types of liquids. Where the mat is to come into contact with oils & grease then we would recommend a rubber mat with a higher Nitrile content to increase its lifespan.
If your mat will be used in a dry area, with no standing water on the floors, then foam anti fatigue mats will be your best choice.
Anti Fatigue Mats with Wheeled Traffic
If trolleys and pallet trucks are likely to roll over the mat, we recommend avoiding foam but using solid rubber or vinyl topped mats instead.
Anti Fatigue Matting Material
As a simple rule of thumb, PVC foam and Vinyl anti fatigue mats tend to be at the more lighter usage end of the market and therefore the more punishment that the mat will take will require it to have more and more rubber content.
Many of our mats come with the option of having plain yellow or black and yellow edging in order to further enhance their visibility and health and safety qualities.

Anti Fatigue Mats & Matting
When standing still for long periods of time, we begin to feel extremely uncomfortable and physically tired. This is due to increased pressure on joints and blood pooling in the lower limbs.
When using anti fatigue mats, your legs muscles are activated by small movements you make unconsciously to keep you standing upright. This helps to encourage better blood circulation which reduces the effects of fatigue. The softer surfaces created by the mat also increases comfort, leading to better morale and productivity.
In an independent study carried out in 2015, 75% of businesses who used Anti Fatigue matting said they found an overall improvement in staff well-being, along with 44% of respondents who considered the matting to have a positive effect on productivity. 23% of users also confirmed that absenteeism had reduced as a result of using anti fatigue mats.
Our anti fatigue matting has been developed to help fight the effects of fatigue, which results in multiple benefits for the user and for the employees.
Custom Anti Fatigue Mats Work As Hard As You
Anti fatigue mats work by providing a cushioned surface for your muscles to make the tiny movements that stop your legs from seizing up. These are micro-movements we make every day, but they arent possible on concrete and other hard surfaces. By allowing the muscles to flex, anti fatigue mats protect people from leg and lower back pain, muscle fatigue and stiffness.

What Are Anti
Anti-fatigue mats are an ergonomic product that allows you to eliminate the negative effects of standing work. They stimulate regular, small and imperceptible foot movements in static positions. Feet, due to the necessity to adjust to a properly designed mat, improve blood circulation in the body. This results in better work of the circulatory system, which in turn allows you to feel less tired after many hours of work in a static standing position. Thanks to this, you can avoid many diseases that are associated with working on cold or hard ground.
