How do Anti Fatigue Mats Work?

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 affects 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 range of anti-fatigue mats has been developed to help fight the effects of fatigue, which results in multiple benefits for the user and for the employees.

How to Choose Your Anti Fatigue Mat

The 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 environment involving liquids including Water, Chemicals, Oils, Grease, etc. If so, then be aware that Anti-Fatigue Mats made with foam 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 anti fatigue mats made with Foam will be suitable for you. 

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.
