A different kind of Matting Solution

I've discussed several times the advantages of matting to keep sand and salt out and how matting should be kept down all year round to protect your floors. But there is also another advantage to certain types of matting that we often over look.

Anti-Fatigue Matting - If you work on your feet all day or have employees who are on the feet all day have you seen or heard the advantages of anti-fatigue matting. Consider the following:
     Lengthy working hours in a standing, stationary position, slows the circulation of blood through the veins,      making the heart work harder, which equates to a prolonged physical effort. This is the main cause of fatigue.

What does this mean for you and your employees? Diminished Productivity, Increase risk of accident, and reduced motivation.

How can Anti Fatigue Matting work? Anti-Fatigue Matting creates micro movement under your feet which activates blood flow and keeps you activated. It is also designed to reduce slip and fall issues. When used workers feel 50% less tired and productivity is increased.

For more info or to see samples and how Anti-Fatigue matting can work in your facility feel free to contact me and I would be happy to show you. Also check out our March and April promotion on Anti-Fatigue matting.
