The complete guide to choosing anti-fatigue mats
06/06/2018

Today’s anti-fatigue mats use innovative material and construction to solve a wide range of problems in the workplace and suit a variety of environments, but the vast selection available can make it difficult when choosing anti-fatigue mats. Fortunately, all the Notrax mats we stock have handy icons to tell you everything you need to know about the mat at a glance. Along with this handy guide to help you figure out exactly what it is you need from your anti-fatigue mat, it’s easier than ever to make sure you get the perfect fatigue mat.

How to choose your anti-fatigue mat To be able to choose the perfect anti-fatigue mat you’ll need a clear idea of what is you need your anti-fatigue to do. Once you know exactly what you want from your anti-fatigue solution, you can narrow down your search by picking the perfect mat for your specific environment.

The purpose of your mat What is the primary purpose of your anti-fatigue mat? This will be the number one problem you want your mat to solve. Unsurprisingly, the anti-fatigue benefits of the mat are often the most important to many people. If you have employees that spend extended periods standing to do their jobs and have even noticed absences or health concerns due to these positions, then you’ll want a mat with anti-fatigue properties.

Alternatively, you may simply want to make the work environment safer with anti-slip or protective properties. These are especially important for more specialised work environments that may be dealing with dangerous liquids or materials. In such areas, you’re at a higher risk of accidents including slipping. For these environments, look out for anti-slip and protective properties such as shatter protection or cold floor protection.

The work environment To make sure you choose an anti-fatigue mat that is up the job, you’ll need to match it carefully to your environment. A mat made from the wrong materials or not suited to handling your environment can be even more dangerous than having no mat at all. You’ll need to consider whether the work environment regularly handles liquids, oils, grease or chemicals. If not, look out for anti-fatigue mats that are designed for dry areas. If the environment does handle these materials, make sure you choose a mat that is designed for wet environments or specially designed to be resistant to oils, grease and chemicals.
