Dance Equipment To Get This Party Started!

Posted on: August 16th, 2013 by

Dance Equipment Is All This Party Needs!Another month is upon us and another third Thursday of the month for that matter. Yesterday was our Canoga Park Art Walk (or Third Thursdays as we hold it in the summers on the third Thursday of every month) and it was my distinct honor and pleasure to shed my sales hat and put on the sound guy hat. Since this event is completely organized by volunteers, there were little options more fitting than I due to owning and operating all my own gear AND because my day job is about 5 minutes away from the event. As a result, my trustee partner in crime, Mr. Stag and I quickly left the comfortable zen of selling gymnastics, commercial , and dance accessories for the brutal assault that is stage management and audio engineering.

Something that would’ve been handy (besides a better power amp as the one I brought blew out two songs into our last artist) would be some anti-fatigue mats. After carefully crafting a well balance sonic presentation for our audience, I still had to stay put (as any good engineer would) and monitor levels, check for noise (there was plenty) and enjoy the fumes right next to the generator. All the while managing the set times, kicking overzealous bands off stage, and partying it up with the resident DJ Phitoe. If anyone is local to the San Fernando Valley, Third Thursdays happens next on Aug 5th. Come by and pay me a visit. I won’t bite… hard. And I’ll be sure to bring me my marble fatigue mat this time.


Mats Mats and More Mats!

Posted on: July 27th, 2012 by

loga mats, exercise mats, play mats, gymnastics mats... I see mats everywhere I go.“Thank you for calling MatsMatsMats.com! This is Chris, how can I help you?” 

Say that 10 times fast.  My whole life is mats.  I know we all take work home with us, but that usually applies to actual work or problems from work.  I find myself noticing our products (or similar) all over the place.  From the Marble Fatigue Mat at Costco to the Jumbo martial arts tiles at the DoJo by my movie theater and the carpet logo mats I see everywhere.  

I find myself inspecting various products to see if they are ours or if they compare.  Often, they are our products and unfortunately for the various businesses, many other times they are not our products and look pretty “cheap”.   One of these days I need give those business owners my business card and the opportunity to get a product that will last, and is most likely less expensive.  All I need is a little courage, because I’m not a very pushy person- It’s easier when I get to talk to you guys because I’m really just giving you more information on something you already want or need.

Am I the only one that finds themselves being an employee outside of work? I think it’s probably that it’s just become second nature- and maybe a little pride?  Every once and a while a friend or family member will say something about needing kneeling pads, or a yoga mat or something we carry and I find myself very eager to just start spewing all the information I know about those products and why ours are better than anybody else’s. What is that?!?!  Let’s be honest, mats aren’t the most fascinating thing to talk about but for some reason I’m progressively more aware of their existence.  Please tell me I’m not alone!  I know you can’t comment below…but feel free to call me (877.777.6287)! I’d love to hear your stories.


Which Anti-Fatigue Mat Is Right For Me?

Posted on: July 19th, 2012 by
I got a very interesting telephone call from a customer regarding a high-end lenses repair operation he just started. These are repairs for lenses from microscopes to telescopes… out of his detached garage! Shocked and alarmed, (I’ve tried disassembling a camera lenses before in less than perfect conditions and ended up with A LOT of dust caught in the camera, which resulted in a useless camera) the first borderline-annoyed question on my mind was “how can you work on, let alone repair, lenses in a garage?? Is it a finished garage? Is it a workshop? Really, that’s three questions, but you see, lenses require manufacture and service in fairly clean, sterile, dust free environments.  Any particle of dust that gets caught in the chambers of a telescope, microscope, or camera lenses can cause some serious headaches for the observer using it.  A trip to the Griffith Park Observatory (or any observatory really) would serve everyone well to understand just how precise, delicate, and magnificent these instruments are.
 
Our customer is a professional, however, and was calling us to see if we could provide a foam material with anti-fatigue qualities for himself and his staff that does not shed any of it’s particles from use.  When working they tend to stand for long periods of time and they wanted to be more comfortable.  With ease, we decided on any of the hard-topped anti-fatigue mats as opposed to the ones that are just pure foam. These being (to name a few) our Diamond anti-fatigue mat, Invigorator, and the K-marble anti-fatigue mat.  I strayed away from the Marble fatigue mat since I understand to be more prone to chemical wear than our vinyl.
