Mats of all shapes and sizes are quite literally, right under your feet. At all times, in all manners or places and purposes you will find an entire army of mats at work. These silent partners go mostly unnoticed by most. Having emerged myself completely into the secret world of these mats I now see and find them everywhere I roam. For example last night I was out with a few friends; catching up and having a few drinks at our old watering hole. On the way out we all walked over, yet I was seemingly the only one that noticed the Crosshatch Entry Mats at the back door.
Each time I enter a retail location there is always some type of commercial entrance mats. These mats simply sit there, ever hard at work. They are the gate keepers of the corporate and retail empires. Commercial mats and rubber tiles line the production floors of the factories the produce some of your favorite technological items. From Televisions to Cars; their corridors are lined with Anti-Fatigue Mats and rolls or rubber. Their front offices guarded by office mats.
Mats are the silent partners of industry and if you look closely you will find them in all their various incarnations. The next time you’re out and visiting your favorite stores or haunts, turn your eyes to the ground and take a moment to notice the nameless workers beneath your feet. The mats are everywhere!

In the news this week: “A group of American tourists have been rescued from a drifting Icelandic iceberg that broke off from land as they were trying to picnic upon it, complete with folding chairs and table. The five imperiled picnickers are safe, plucked by a small rescue boat from the ice slab floating atop deathly frigid waters of the Fjallsárlón glacial lagoon in Iceland, five-and-a-half hours east of Reykhavik.” The naïve little adventurers practically froze to death on this giant block of ice all to have a little scenic picnic.
One thing that would have helped them in this little escapade would have been some rubber mats. Rubber pads would have been a good insulator from the wild icy tundra that they all ended floating away on. They all made it back just fine, no need to worry there. But perhaps in the future they will all think ahead a bit and find a rubber mat of some kind to lay down between them and the freezing ice. Let this be a lesson to us all; if you are going to have a nice picnic on a floating landmass of ice, you may want to plan ahead slightly and pack some rolled rubber or rubber tiles instead of your favorite picnic blanket. I am sure that you be thankful you did.

I received an email from one of my many happy customers and wanted to share it.
I have bought many of your Shiatsu Thai Massage Mats.Â We have a series of colleges that are the largest post-secondary education companies in the U.S.Â One of our popular courses is to become a Massage therapy Instructor.Â
Not only does your shiatsuÂ massage mat hold up to course after course of heavy usage, we have recently bought another product that has helped the students from getting too worn out by the long days of learning and practicing the career.Â They’re your interlocking Soft Rubber tiles.Â Â There are so many benefits of this product.Â It makes the floor look great, holds up the weight of the tables while also providing some comfort for our students who are standing for hours at a time.
I just wonder what the next product I’m going to find from your company that will help our colleges really stand out.Â Thanks so much for all your help and quality products.
- A Very Happy Customer

Cousin to exercise mats are rubber playground surfaces.Â It used to be the playground, in elementary school or even daycare facilities was a place children could injured fairly easily; imagine having to tell kids to â€œslow downâ€ or â€œnot runâ€ on a playground! Â The dangers of kids climbing on the â€œmonkey barsâ€ held potential for youngsters to fall and get seriously hurt.Â The fleeting thrill does not justify the potential hazards.
Fortunately, playgrounds of today are mostly rubberized.Â Rubber playground surfaces are similar in concept to many adult exercise facilities, which have installed rubber tiles for weight room flooring to absorb shock and reduce pain as well as fatigue on joints while exercising; so why should children, who are far more likely to be careless and have lesser developed balance, be any less deserving of what is not a luxury but a necessity? Â The truth is: â€œsafety firstâ€ should have been the catch phrase it is today forty years ago.
