With all the manufacturers, styles, sizes, and colors of mats, it can be a challenge to choose the right one for your needs. We’ll make that process easier by providing you with some questions you need to consider as well as information required to make a smart decision.
Questions to consider:
- Is this mat for outdoor or indoor use?
- In what area of the facility will this mat be used?
- Will this mat be in a wet or dry area?
After you’ve answered these questions, you’ll be able to narrow down what type of mat would best suit the needs of your facility.
When selecting mats for outdoor use, it’s important to consider the material of the mat for safety and usage concerns. Since outdoor mats are subject to weather elements, non-slip outdoor mats made of rubber or polypropylene are commonly used.
Mats for indoor use have other considerations. Depending on what area the mat is to be used, whether the mat is to be used in a wet or dry area, and traffic levels the style and material of the mat can vary greatly. For example, an anti fatigue such as this Rejuvenator Mat would be perfect for a dry work area that a worker would be standing at all day. The Rejuvenator mat however, would not work for the entrance to a facility where there is more of a concern for wet and heavier traffic. Instead, you might select something like this Cavalier Ribbed Carpet Mat.
While choosing the correct mat for your needs may seem like a daunting task, asking the above questions will really make the selection process easier. Once you have clearly defined needs, selecting the right mat is as simple as finding the mat attributes that align with your needs.
