Choosing the right anti-fatigue matting for your workplace

At Blue Diamond, we understand the importance of creating a safe, comfortable and productive workplace. We believe that when your team feels good, they perform at their best. That’s why, when selecting the right anti-fatigue matting, several key factors need to be considered to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness.

First and foremost, think about where the mat will be used and the needs of your employees. Consider the specific conditions of the environment, whether it's an industrial setting with potential exposure to chemicals and oils or a commercial space with high foot traffic. Discomfort and stress on the body, legs and feet can arise both from short and long periods of standing, so also consider how long your employees will be standing on the mat, and what kind of tasks they will be performing.

The surface texture is especially important if slip resistance is needed. Look for mats with a textured surface to improve traction to prevent slips and falls. Bevelled edges can also contribute to safety by reducing the risk of tripping; they also help to facilitate the movement of equipment onto and off the mat.

Consider if drainage is required. Open top designed mats offer excellent anti-fatigue benefits whilst also providing drainage and swarf removal to ensure a dry, clean and safe surface. For areas exposed to welding or heat, using a mat made from nitrile rubber or PVC properties ensures durability and resistance to high temperatures.

And finally, for environments where static electricity is a concern, choose anti-fatigue mats with anti-static properties to ensure a safe working environment.

By fully understanding the environment and the needs of your employees will focus your choices on finding the right mat.
