Choosing the Best and Affordable Anti Fatigue Floor Mats
Just like entrance floor mats, which type of mats are the best anti fatigue mats for one application may not be the best for another. The fatigue mats manufactured today are as diverse as they are plentiful. This could pose a challenge to the ill informed.
All anti fatigue mats are not equal. Each manufacturer of anti fatigue mats attempts to equip his product with features and benefits that provide an edge over a competitor's product. The key to choosing an affordable fatigue mat is in matching the features of the mat with the desired benefit for the end user.
For instance, choosing anti fatigue floor mats that are designed for dry areas and then using them in areas where oils, animal fats or liquids are present will result in a mess. Anti fatigue mats utilized incorrectly may result in safety hazards to the end user, degradation of the anti fatigue mat and/or a maintenance nightmare. Choosing the right types of fatigue matting will result in an increase in productivity, a safer work environment, the fatigue mats will be much easier to keep clean and finally, your anti fatigue mats will have a much longer usable lifespan.
If the wrong anti fatigue mats are chosen, the resulting situation almost always ends up costing more money. If the wrong fatigue mats degrade sooner, there is a replacement cost factor. If the wrong anti fatigue mat presents a safety issue, there are the costs attributed to slip and falls (not uncommon for medical/legal claims to be in excess of $10,000). Fatigue mats that are difficult to keep clean can promote hazardous germ growth and require increased maintenance expenditures to keep the mats clean.
Affordable anti fatigue mats don't just happen. Most end users ultimately find a product that may be deemed as an affordable anti fatigue mat, but this situation usually occurs as a result of trial and error. Consider how expensive it could be should you choose the wrong fatigue matting.

Anti fatigue mats vary in price as well as functionality. It is a given that fatigue mats help to prevent muscle aches in the feet, legs and back. They do this by forcing the leg and feet muscles to continually constrict and relax thus facilitating the venous blood flow back toward the heart. If blood is permitted to pool in the legs, there is a loss of efficiency of bringing oxygen to muscles and in lowering the toxicity levels of lactic acid build-up in working muscles. Lactic acid build-up leads to fatigue and can also lead to cramping. The pooling of blood in the legs results in sore muscles and higher levels of lactic acid build-up.
It follows then that using the proper anti fatigue flooring can reduce aches and reduce muscle fatigue which lowers the risk of slip/fall injuries related to fatigue. Furthermore, anti fatigue mats can lead to increased productivity and morale. But, what is an acceptable cost to achieve these objective? What constitutes a selection of affordable anti fatigue mats for your purposes?
