Need help choosing the right mat?

Choosing the right mat can be a bit of a minefield with many companies offering similar products, and a range of surface and backing options designed for various needs like light or heavy foot traffic.

In our opinion, the simplest way to choose the right mat is to ask yourself four questions:

1. What is the intended purpose of the mat? (e.g., Anti-Slip, Anti-Fatigue)

2. What is the environment? (e.g., dry/wet, capturing dust and swarf, protecting against oil or coolant)

3. What size is needed? (e.g., individual workstation, walkway, entrance mat)

4. What is the expected level of use? (e.g., single user, or high foot traffic)

Once you have the above information, this immediately streamlines the options available for you and makes your search more focussed and less overwhelming.

Additional factors to consider:

Maintenance: Some mats may require more upkeep than others, so think about how much time and effort you're willing to invest in cleaning and maintenance.

Aesthetics: We recommend choosing a mat that complements the decor and ambiance of your space, whether it's a workplace, retail store, or residential area.

Budget: While it's tempting to opt for the most affordable option, sometimes investing in a slightly more expensive mat can save you money in the long run. Higher-quality mats are often more durable and resistant to wear and tear, meaning they'll last longer and require less frequent replacement.
