Floor mats are very important to both industrial and commercial settings and keen consideration needs to be taken when you are making your purchase. Here is how to select the right floor mat for your business.
First of all, you need to determine your company needs to help you narrow down your selection. This is important because commercial floor mats are available in varying styles, shapes, color and sizes.
The floor mats may come in styles including anti-fatigue, scraper, and wiper as well as custom logo mats. Floor mats such as anti-fatigue are designed to protect employees and customers by giving them comfort when they stand for long periods. Customizable mats are great for entryways and they give you the opportunity to market further your already established brand. Also, for entrance mats, you might to consider scraper and wiper which are tough enough to absorb moisture and pick up any dirt from the shoes of visitors coming into your business. Apart from water-resistant floor mats, there are also those that are made to resist grease which may lead to an inadequate performance by your employees.
Location and placement of the floor mat are other considerations that you need to contemplate. Most floor mats are designed to be placed indoors, outdoors or at the entry depending on its use. For instance, a custom mat should be placed at the entryway where customers will easily see the logo on the mat.
Before you purchase a floor mat for your facility, it is important to consider its size. Therefore, before you go shopping, make sure you get the accurate measurement of the space where you are going to place the mat in order to make your selection easier. If you are expecting high traffic, do for a larger size mat so that it can hold up more moisture and debris. If you are not assured that you will find a mat that fits your space, you can customize it your requirements.
Look for a floor carpet that not only looks good but one that is also durable. A good mat will be useful for years even in conditions of high foot traffic. Also ensure that the mats can be easily cleaned so as to increase its longevity.
Finally, compare the prices of different floor mat brands and choose the one that meets your budgetary needs. However, it should not be your only determining factor as it will have an impact on the style, size and material of the floor mat you choose.
