High-quality anti-fatigue mats do so much more than pad the ground and provide some extra grip. At Allway Matting, we have created a range of mats which will reduce muscle soreness, prevent excessive tiredness, and massively increase the productivity of your standing workforce.
To help you figure out which mat is perfect for your business (and your exhausted employees) we’ve put together a short guide,with 3 essential tips for choosing the right anti-fatigue mat. It’s totally free, and should answer all your main questions about anti-fatigue mats and how they can impact your business.
For physically demanding industries such as manufacturing plants and factories, anti-fatigue mats are an essential pillar of employee health and safety. Our heavy-duty safety mats provide a firm layer of cushioning between the soles of your shoes and the cold, hard floor.
Since staff are often manipulating heavy and complex equipment, it’s vital to reduce tiredness at all costs. By taking some of the pressure off your employees’ muscles and joints, our anti-fatigue mats do exactly that.
One major cause of injury in these workplaces is slipping and falling. Our extremely durable mats provide firm grip with both the floor and your employees’ shoes, substantially reducing this risk. Not only that, our safety mats are built with a non-slip surface which is resistant to chemicals and greasy oils, meaning we can substantially limit the number of nasty falls at work.
In a retail or office environment, it’s less about anti-slip and more about soft cushioning and balanced support. Working long hours on your feet is known to stifle blood flow and induce muscle ache. Not only does this distract employees from their work, but it can cause uncomfortable and even chronic pain. In the long term, staff may require sick leave or physiotherapy to reduce the ache and pain in their muscles.
Thankfully, comfort mats combat this problem. The surface of our comfort mats will induce subtle movement in the legs, stimulating blood flow. Not only that, we also offer a range of thicknesses and material softness to provide the optimum solution for your working environment. If you’re not sure which mat would best suit your business, get in touch and we’ll walk you through the options.
Our light and medium-duty safety mats are functionally resistant to water and drinks spillages, too, so you don’t have to worry if someone drops their coffee at work!
Even with a soft, comfortable anti-fatigue mat beneath their feet, many workers struggle to find relief. The problem is worst for staff who are standing up all day without moving. Thankfully, we’ve designed unique comfort mats with a special marbled surface to combat the problem.
Essentially, those using standing desks or working on a static assembly line have no chance to move their legs, activate their muscles, and stimulate blood flow. They can develop muscle and joint pain, lower back problems, and become excessively tired over the course of the day.
Our movement-based mats have a marbled surface which encourages subtle movements in the legs and feet of staff. This activates the muscles and promotes faster blood flow through the body. The result is a significant reduction in pain, discomfort, and tiredness.
Safety mats are proven to lessen fatigue and boost productivity in your workforce. If your staff are spending long hours on their feet, contact our support team today and we’ll see what we can do to help.
