Choosing the Best Mats for Standing
All floor mats are not equal. Each manufacturer attempts to equip his product with specific features and benefits that are designed to provide an edge over a competitor’s product. The key to choosing the best type of mat is in matching the features of the mat itself to your specific need. One type of fatigue mat that may be the best for one user, in turn may not offer the best form of fatigue relief for another. There are a variety of different comfort mats available on the market today. The reason there are so many different varieties is because of the diversity of environments in which they are utilized. Unfortunately, the wide array of standing mats available may pose somewhat of a challenge to the ill-informed. Look below to find a few popular selections of these types of mats below. You’ll find that each mat has advantages in certain industries, whereas others may not perform quite as well. It’s important that you choose a mat that suits your needs, or else you could be facing more problems than solutions.
For instance, choosing fatigue mats designed for dry areas and using them in areas where oils, animal fats or liquids are present will generally result in a mess. When mats are utilized incorrectly it may result in safety hazards to the end user. Problems include mat degradation, a need for total mat replacement, and/or just presenting a maintenance nightmare. Choosing the right type of floor mat will result in an increase in productivity, a safer work environment, easier clean up, and finally a much longer usable lifespan of the mat itself.
If the wrong fatigue matting is chosen, the resulting situation almost always ends up costing more money. The expense may be in hard dollars for replacement or increased maintenance expenditures to keep the mats clean. If the wrong floor mats are used that present a safety issue, then there may be the costs attributed to slip, trip and falls (It is not uncommon for medical/legal claims to be in excess of $10,000).
Choosing the best fatigue mat doesn’t just happen. Most end users ultimately find products that may be deemed as acceptable fatigue matting, but this situation usually occurs as a result of trial and error. Consider how expensive it could be should you choose the wrong mat for the job.
If the right questions are posed, the answers can be quite helpful to you in making an informed decision. The information gathered will allow you to select the specific attributes that your mat needs to possess in order for it to pass muster. You can then quickly weed out the fatigue mats that do not meet your criteria. This will save you both time and money, not to mention frustration.
Some questions you may wish to take into consideration to identify the best fatigue matting for you might be:
Are the mats going to be subjected to any oils, greases, chemicals or liquids of any kind?
Are there any static issues that need to be considered?
How will you clean and maintain your new anti-fatigue mats?
Will your floor mats be utilized in any food preparation areas?
Will these mats be subjected to any wheeled carts?
Are the workers utilizing the mats considered “high dollar” employees that are difficult to find, attract and retain?
What type of usable lifespan are you looking for from your fatigue matting?
What type of work will be performed in the area where the mats will be located?
Will the use of these mats hinder or enhance the overall work area?
These are but a few of the questions we consider when arriving at which fatigue mat types are the most affordable for our customers. We would love the opportunity to assist you in finding which mat will fit your needs best.
Once you compile a list of the mats for standing that initially meets your performance criteria, you will no doubt notice that these floor mats also have a wide variance in price. This price variance is usually due to any additional features that the individual mats may possess. Floor mats that have good anti fatigue qualities, have grease resistant qualities and can be used in a kitchen environment may cost more than good anti-fatigue floor mat that is designed for use in only dry work areas. Anti-fatigue floor mats with grease proof features generally cost more. Your mission should be to identify the MUST HAVE FEATURES and de-emphasize the features that any mats may have that do not offer an appreciable benefit for your particular application.
Anti-fatigue mats vary in price as well as functionality. It is a given that these mats help to prevent muscle aches in the feet, legs and back. They do this by forcing the leg and feet muscles to continually constrict and relax thus facilitating the venous blood flow back toward the heart. If blood is permitted to pool in the legs, there is a loss of efficiency of bringing oxygen to muscles and in lowering the toxicity levels of lactic acid build-up in working muscles. Lactic acid build-up leads to fatigue and can also lead to pain and cramping. The pooling of blood in the legs results in sore muscles and higher levels of lactic acid build-up.
It follows then that using the proper fatigue matting can reduce aches and reduce muscle fatigue which lowers the risk of slip/fall injuries related to fatigue. Furthermore, fatigue mats can lead to increased productivity and morale. But, what is an acceptable cost to achieve these objective? What constitutes an affordable fatigue mat for your purposes?
