Trade Show Flooring

Trade Show Flooring

industrial matsI haven’t been to a lot of expos or trade shows to say I’m an expert on trade show flooring, or even other types of either rolled rubber flooring, or rubber foam interlocking floor tiles like those pictured here, but I have worked and walked on enough of these types of flooring to appreciate their tremendous value.

Usually, when we think of trade show flooring, or even commercial and industrial mats, we picture in our minds glass booths assembled on perhaps carpet top or faux wood finish mats that either assemble in tile form or those that roll out. When I think of installing some of these amazing trade show flooring tiles in my own home, I think of doing so in our family game room, where my son and his buddies and can lift—and sometimes drop—their weights, without damaging our floor, or without making a lot of racket!

Camouflage Rubber Flooring

trade show flooringNow you might think me a goofball for saying this, but I sort of wish I had a place to put down some camouflage trade show flooring, in my home or office space, like what’s picture here.  Seriously!  There is a reason why I say this, so give me a chance!  I have a bad back, and standing or walking on hard floors doesn’t help.  So I do wear expensive shoes to help, but having a more yielding floor would be helpful, too.

Maybe you know someone who could benefit from some of these tiles put down just in their immediate workspace to help reduce fatigue, particularly if they’re on their feet all day.  And if they—or you—are on their/your feet all day, you might want to look into using some anti-fatigue mats, which are specifically designed to reduce stress on body joints…like…bad backs!

Recycled Rubber Flooring

trade show flooringI’ve been considering all the many uses for traditional, trade show flooring, and other durable, rubber flooring, and the other day, while writing about sports logo rugs and how good looking those professional logo rugs are for NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, and other such sports logo rugs would look in a home or sports bar, and I thought, “Why not install a highly durable gym flooring in a sports bar, for effect, even if not just in front of the serving or bar area, to keep that “gym feel” beneath the feet of patrons?”

Am I crazy for such an idea?  I don’t think so.  Interlocking gym flooring tiles are extremely durable, easy on the feet, legs, back and joints, provide anti-fatigue qualities, help prevent slippage, and are impervious to liquids; especially the corrosive qualities sweat can have over a period of time.  I think it’s a pretty cool idea.   If you own your own sports bar, what do you think of the idea?

Safety Playground Flooring

trade show flooringKids play areas have become much safer over recent years, to where special safety playground flooring, like what you see here, is fast becoming the norm. This specialized flooring is made to resist the elements such as sun, rain, cold, etc, unlike traditional trade show flooring, which is made exclusively for indoor use.

For many years, children’s playgrounds have been buffered with sand or wood chips, which are messy and—although safer and softer than concrete—aren’t anywhere nearly as pleasant as the bouncy, foam tiles of playground flooring. Playground flooring has a higher impact rating than rolled gym flooring, can help to reduce insurance premiums, as well as liability potential, but (more importantly) greatly reduce injuries even from falls as high has 6 feet.

Trade Show Booth Flooring

trade show booth flooringSoftCarpetTM trade show flooring actually energizes staff members with its superb, soft, cushioned, underfoot experience. These carpet top, interlocking foam tiles are easily put together, look fantastic, come in a nice variety of colors, and even provides great, anti-fatigue support so as to prevent personnel from getting so easily wearied while being on foot all day. There’s hardly a better looking trade show flooring available on the market, while providing excellence in comfort to feet, back and other body joints.

If you would like something equally as comfortable, but with a wood floor appearance [brighter and generates more contrast], then you will simply love SoftWood trade show booth flooring, which gives the appearance of a wood laminate floor, but is not as hard on the feet, of course, as a hard, wood floor.

Trade Show Flooring

trade show flooringWhen you’re looking for trade show flooring, your options are so numerous, it’s easy to get a bit overwhelmed at times; but it’s really about needs and taste combined. If you do a lot of expos, then you might be looking at some nice trade show booth flooring, such as the SoftCarpet top, which is elegant, durable, and practical. Trade show flooring comes in roll up versions as well as foam interlocking tiles so as to piece together just the right size to suit your needs.

And, of course, when you’re traveling, you should not neglect appropriate storage and transport units to haul your flooring. That’s why everything has been thought of for you!
Trade show shipping cases are great for putting in the belly of a plane, or even in a moving van or underneath a large touring bus; just choose whether or not you want wheels.

Industrial Mats

trade show flooringIndustrial mats and trade show flooring are typically manufactured at endurance standards not called for in residential door or floor mats—many of which are, in actuality, anti-fatigue mats by nature.  With industrial mats, such as non-conductive mats that “grab” static electricity built up on human feet or caster wheels, anti-fatigue characteristics are and added plus.

Performa anti-fatigue mats [pictured] designed for wet areas such as restaurant kitchens and other environs prone to water or grease, channel away substances that would otherwise pool underfoot.  Both types are not really what you’d look for if you were looking for trade show flooring, but need anti-fatigue flooring for an exhibit.  The more fitting choice in the case of anti-fatigue trade show flooring for an expo would be something wood finish flooring like SoftWoodTM.

Anti-Fatigue Flooring

trade show flooringWhile shopping for the perfect trade show flooring, with ant-fatigue qualities, how does one go about prioritizing which characteristics to consider first? Well, the great thing about the availability of anti-fatigue trade show flooring or rubber flooring with anti-fatigue traits, is there really is so much variety to choose from; you really shouldn’t be faced with a too tough of a choice.

If you need a carpet top flooring, that’s no problem; there are numerous colors suitable to every environment. If you’re exhibiting at a trade show expo and want the look of wood flooring, then SoftWoodTM trade show booth flooring is superb—looks fantastic, absorbs body weight, like you’d expect from anti-fatigue mats, as well as sound and vibrations…it even will protect any breakable items, should they be dropped, where concrete would be the landing spot, otherwise.

Most of this flooring comes in either foam, interlocking tiles, or in rolled segments. The important thing is they relieve fatigue on joints such as lower back, ankles, and knees, while sparing feet as well.

Industrial Mats

industrial anti-fatigue matsThere are, perhaps, too many classifications of commercial and/or industrial mats to discuss here, but suffice it to say the manufacturers of anti-fatigue, non-slip, conductive, non-conductive, and about a dozen other such mats for every conceivable circumstance have really done the leg work for the rest of us, putting the best of technology and quality together—no…they don’t fool around when it comes to safety and improving worker performance!

Take, for instance, Stand-N-Weld industrial anti-fatigue mats [pictured here]; the Nitrile rubber surface fends off sparks from welding, grinding, or cutting, resists most chemicals, and provides stress relief to feet and body joints, as well as protecting against slipping. What more could you want from industrial mats?

Radiant Heaters

energy efficient heatersNow that the winter months are over, this might be a good time to shop for radiant heaters and other energy efficient space heaters, which are often priced for off-season purchases.  Or, if you work in an establishment that’s kept especially cold and your legs get cold, while seated, you would probably enjoy the comfort a safe, flat panel heater like the one shown here.

People who suffer from diabetes often suffer from pain in their feet while rested on cold, hard floors; that’s when an ergonomic, heated footrest would make a fantastic gift for a boss, coworker, spouse, or even to yourself.  Then, every time that person rests his or her feet on that cozy, heated footrest, or under his or her desk, and feels the radiant warmth, your thoughtfulness will come to mind.
