Are Indoor Mats a Good Investment?
As an office worker or business owner, you might be starting to wonder if investing in indoor matting is a good idea. Well, we can tell you it is! There are many uses for indoor mats and there is a wide variety that you can choose from.
Here at Commercial Matting, we stock five kinds of indoor matting including, anti-fatigue, commercial coir, synthetic, runners and throwdown entrance mats, all of which serve their own purpose so you can find the right one for you. Below, we discuss the main benefits of indoor mats to hopefully help you with your decision.
The Types of Indoor Mats We Offer and Their Benefits
Coir matting is a traditional type of indoor mat that is made from natural coconut fibres, a sustainable material taken from the outer shell of a coconut, called the mesocarp. Coir matting is a popular entrance mat for many reasons:
Environmentally friendly – coir mats are made from 100% natural coconut fibres which are sustainably sourced and biodegradable.
Durable – the bristles contain a high level of lignin which is an organic polymer found in many plants to enhance their strength and lifespan. This quality makes coir matting water-resistant and very strong, making them a perfect addition to high foot traffic areas.
Safe – coir matting has excellent scraping qualities due to the fibres having a rough and wiry texture, efficiently removing excess water and dirt from footwear. By removing these elements there is a reduced chance of slip and trip hazards occurring in the workplace. All of our coir mats are backed with PVC for extra protection against slipping hazards.
Versatile – coir matting can be used in several indoor settings such as schools, public buildings, and offices, and can be purchased in a variety of colours. We also offer a made to measure service, where you can purchase your mat in any size you need.
Synthetic matting (also known as brush matting) is an ideal indoor mat for your entranceways, designed to keep your indoor spaces clean and safe. The benefits of synthetic matting are:
Durable – these mats are made from 100% synthetic fibres which do not shed or fray, providing you with longevity.
Safe – the ribbed texture creates a surface which scrapes the soles of shoes efficiently, removing dirt and water before it transfers onto the bare floor. They are also made with a latex waffle backing which acts as a good moisture trap and adds a non-slip quality.
Versatile – all of our synthetic matting can be made to measure and is available in a wide variety of colours such as blue, red, black, green, and more.
We have two types of indoor throwdown entrance mats; heavy-duty throw down entrance matting, and luxury throw down entrance matting. Both of which prevent dirt and moisture from entering your building. The benefits of these throwdown entrance mats is:
Stylish – our luxury throw down mats can brighten up any area, available in an array of colours and made from a luxurious high-twist nylon pile.
Safe – all of our throw down mats have a rubber border which reduces trip hazards.
Versatile – these indoor mats can be placed in any entranceway, whether that is in an office, reception, or public building.
For those who are looking to cover a long entranceway or office corridor, runner mats will be your best fit. The advantages of runner mats are:
Safe – they offer a sufficient length of non-slip floor coverage, collecting and controlling the amount of moisture and dirt in high traffic areas.
Floor protection – runner mats are excellent for keeping your floors intact, especially in places such as hotel corridors where there are lots of people and wheeled apparatus passing through.
Durable – our runners are made of 100% synthetics that will not fray and will not need to be replaced for a long time.
Stylish – our runners are available in different colours, patterns, and lengths, that can transform the interior of a space.
If you’re looking for an indoor mat to make your staff more comfortable, anti-fatigue mats are perfect for supporting your staff who stand for long periods. They are designed to increase the blood circulation in your legs, encouraging the natural movement of the lower body so the blood flow doesn’t stagnate in the veins which would usually cause us to feel fatigued. The key benefits are:
Fewer injuries – the cushioned design helps provide comfort underfoot, which minimises the chances of back pain and stiff joints, as well as severe injuries such as muscle tension and lower limb disorders.
Increases productivity – anti-fatigue mats lead to a happier and more productive workplace as fewer people will be in discomfort.
Safe – our anti-fatigue mats are backed with non-slip rubber to reduce slip and trip hazards.
Versatile – we have 4 variations of anti-fatigue matting, made for both light, medium, and heavy-duty work settings.
