Benefits of Anti fatigue matting

By introducing carefully selected anti fatigue mats, they can help to combat Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs). These are injuries or conditions that affect movement. Parts of the body most commonly affected include muscles, tendons, ligaments, vascular systems, nerves, soft tissues, bones, and joints.

Our anti fatigue matting works by providing comfort underfoot, with cushioning which promotes subtle foot movement. This movement minimises the body from being in a static position and prevents the restriction of blood flow around the body, to help improve circulation. Effective matting can help to reduce fatigue, muscular pain and circulation problems.

Choosing the right mats for your environment can reduce absenteeism, increase productivity, increase workplace safety and improve overall employee wellbeing. Anti fatigue mats should be installed in any workplace where workers stand for extensive time periods, this could include industrial work stations to hotel reception desks.

It can be a bit overwhelming deciding which type of anti fatigue matting to select for yours or your customer’s workplace. Some of your first considerations should include: Will the matting be used in a wet or dry area? Does the matting need to cover a large working environment or fixed workstations? Is the environment exposed to any liquids, such as chemicals/oils/grease? Are ramped edges are required?

Anti fatigue Matting FAQs

We’ve compiled answers to frequently asked questions about anti-fatigue mats:

What is anti fatigue?

Anti fatigue means that the product material is designed to prevent or reduce fatigue for people spending a large amount of the day on their feet. Anti-fatigue matting is a simple solution for employees that work on their feet.


What are the advantages of anti-fatigue mats?

Anti-fatigue mats stimulate the calf muscles to move more and improve overall standing health. Standing for long periods of time at work without appropriate flooring like anti fatigue mats, can lead to health problems such as back pain and poor circulation.

When ant-fatigue matting is not used, muscles can harden quickly and lead to poor posture, especially on hard and cold industrial floors. Standing for long periods of time at work can adversely affect employee health, cause MSDs (musculoskeletal disorders) and affect productivity.

Fatigue matting helps to stimulate blood circulation and thus prevent signs of fatigue in standing activities. Well selected anti-fatigue matting relieves the pressure on the feet, joints and spine and make an important contribution to the overall health of employees.


How much do anti-fatigue mats cost?

The cost depends on the type of environment that requires the mats and the quality selected. Investment in anti-fatigue matting is worthwhile, due to the reduction in absenteeism, sick leave and the increase in employee wellbeing and productivity.


How to choose anti-fatigue matting?

In general, it can be said that a closed industrial mat is suitable for dry workplaces, while an “open” workstation mat provides the necessary drainage for workplaces where oils, water or other liquids are used. We offer a wide range of different anti-fatigue mats, so that the right mat can be found for every work environment.

Things to consider when selecting antifatigue matting:

  • Will trucks and trolleys be used on or around the matting?
  • Do you require matting on a roll, individual mats or interlocking tiles?
  • Will the matting come into contact with chemicals or other liquids?

Is anti-fatigue matting available by the meter?
