Anti Fatigue Mats are everywhere.Â You pass by them each and every day without even knowing it.Â Â Almost every profession that requires a large amount of standing will have some type of anti fatigue mat.Â Everyone from your neighborhood grocery market cashier to the teller at your local bank use Anti Fatigue Mats.Â Â As you get your hair cut, your beloved barber is standing on our Marble Anti Fatigue Mats.Â If you have ever worked in a restaurant you would have been standing frequently on our Non-Slip and Drainage Anti Fatigue Mats.Â The people creating our processors in our home computers use the Anti Static Fatigue mats. Â
Â They serve so many purposes and are not just for work.Â They are used in the home as well.Â When cooking those Thanksgiving Dinners and of course, cleaning up afterwards.Â You may find, or need a â€œGel-Likeâ€ Comfort Chef KitchenÂ Mat.Â For any purpose, home or work; if you need it weâ€™ve got it.Â
So the next time youâ€™re out and about, take a glance behind the counter, and look around.Â I guarantee you will find one of many of our Antifatigue Floor Mats.Â As always, have a great weekend and if you need to work on your feet, donâ€™t wear yourself out, get an Anti Fatigue Mat.

Anti-fatigue mats like the one pictured hereâ€”The Invigoratorâ€”arenâ€™t your ordinary door mats just made longer. If youâ€™re new to the concept of anti-fatigue mats, youâ€™re in for a nice surprise; especially if you work a job that requires you to be on your feet for hours on end, and you often [always] end up with sore, tired feet, joints, and back.
Unlike regular rubber mats, floor mats, or welcome mats, anti-fatigue matsâ€”made in varying designs and alternate functions, such as non-slip or anti-static matsâ€”are manufactured with the effects of gravity on the human body in mind. When you stand in one place, or work within a confined space, with hard floors, especially concrete, the stress and strain of your body weight begins to take its toll on your lower back, knees, ankles, and of course your feet.
Anti-fatigue mats are made to absorb body weight into the foam, thus providing a buffer against the hardness of the floor; less pain, reduced fatigue, and improved performance are the result.

Not all anti-fatigue mats are created equal. Â You certainly wouldnâ€™t purchase anti-static mats for use in an industrial or commercial environment where thereâ€™s an inherently wet characteristic, now would you?Â Well, of course not. Â But isnâ€™t it great there are anti-fatigue mats that are also anti-static for when you work in an environment with sensitive, electronic equipment or highly combustible chemicals?
We humans are electric by nature.Â Our bodies produce static currents easily just by walking about, or even rolling across the floor on caster wheels in a chair.Â If we were to touch sensitive equipment such as computers with microchips, or materials or chemicals easily ignited by the tiniest of sparks, it could result in catastrophe.Â Conductive anti-static mats that use a grounding cord are just the thing for such environments.

Most of the time when we think of anti-fatigue mats, we normally picture heavy-duty, thick, non-slip rubberized mats with either holes to capture moisture, or some sort of foam variation designed to reduce pain and fatigue in the feet, ankles, legs and backs of employees in an either industrial setting (like a postal worker at a station for hours on end) or perhaps in a commercial environment.Â But did you know there are grounded, electro-static discharge anti-fatigue mats for use around computers or other sensitive electronics that can be damaged by static discharge by a workers touch?
These mats are called anti-static mats, and can protect expensive computer equipment from being damaged by static electricity; these mats, similar to more common anti-fatigue mats, should not be used beneath machinery or computer equipment, but immediately in front so as to absorb the static discharge when the individual steps onto the mat, just before touching the [sensitive] equipment.
