Floor Matting - Q&A

Any author writing content in the modern era will start with a few searches. Naturally, searching for “Floor Matting” will get you some ideas. I was curious to find the most commonly asked questions about floor matting. Some, understandably, were about car mats but many applied to commercial and industrial applications. Here are the top 5 “non car” questions about floor matting answered by us.

How can floor matting improve productivity?

This is actually the most important question asked, but was not the first question we came across. It really should be.

The obvious win has to be in accident reduction. Looking at the UK statistics for accident related absenteeism shows that every year the UK loses 9.1 days per worker. Naturally, any solution which reduces this absenteeism sees a higher return on investment on your business’ key resource.

A University of Michigan study showed that the correct floor matting solution can reduce workplace absenteeism because of injury and fatigue by up to 23% over 2 years. If that isn’t a sufficient reason to get you to the bottom of the page and contacting us, then read on.


What size floor mats do I need?

This might seem a little silly as a question, but you can start by studying your workers’ standing habits. Do they stand in a single location for a long time? Are they very mobile? Naturally, we recommend fitting your matting to the entire working area, however you can, with tight budgetary constraints, implement matting in the key areas and work out from there.


What floor mats are best for my application?

There are clearly different needs within matting applications, but we need to start with the simplest question. Wet or dry application. From there, we can work out to find your needs directly. Truthfully, the simplest method is to contact our team and arrange for a free consultation to find the best solution for your business.


How thick should a floor mat be?

I include this question because people asked this a lot. The answer, as always, depends on application. For me, the simplest answer would be how long will somebody stand still in this area? If this is for a working area, then some give will provide comfort to the user. However, as with the previous question, you are best to consult for your exact needs.


Are floor mats worth it?

Yes, people asked this question. The interesting thing is that there is a direct and useful answer. How much will it cost to repair/replace your existing flooring? Matting allows you to quickly and simply replace flooring in high footfall/usage environments, reducing the cost in labour, materials and time lost in that environment. In short, this much ignored solution might well be the shrewdest investment in your human resource yet.


So throughout this, we have asked you to put one foot in front of the other and walk to this conclusion. If you have questions about how floor matting will help your business, then now is the time to fill in a form and let our people arrange a mutually agreeable time to discuss your needs and outline your options.
