Safety Anti-Fatigue Mats

Posted on: May 19th, 2010 by

anti-fatigue matsShouldn’t all anti-fatigue mats be safety anti-fatigue mats as well?  One would think so, but…alas…not all mats designated as anti-fatigue mats are also identified—necessarily—as safety anti fatigue mats.  But no matter with such technical definitions, most anti-fatigue mats, whether commercial or industrial, tend to be inherently safe, anyway.

How so?  You ask?  Just think about it.  Many anti-fatigue mats either channel away fluids or chemicals, prevent static discharges, won’t catch on fire, or have a slip-proof surface texture designed to add a measure of improved safety!   Just about the only anti-fatigue mats with a smooth surface are rubber, marbleized anti-fatigue mats, which have a smooth surface that would become slippery when wet, but these are atypical, compared to most other anti-fatigue mats.
