Tips to Proper Mat Installation and Placement

Many people think about installing floor mats only at the front door. Mats are traditionally installed at key entries at both commercial and industrial facilities. However, there are actually different mats designed specifically for use in scores of different areas of a facility for different reasons.Andersen Mats offers the following suggestions for where mats can and most likely should be placed in a typical office building or industrial facility:

Commercial Office Building

  • Welcome facility visitors with a reception mat such as a logo mat or a molded rubber mat specifically designed to scrape and capture soil off of shoes like our Waterhog logo mats and Superscrape as well.
  • Copy machine areas are terrific for our Hog Heaven anti fatigue matting which is also anti-static.
  • Transitional areas, for instance from a warehouse into the main office area, call for transitional mats such as Waterhog or Enviro Plus.
  • Installed under water fountains to absorb spills again the Waterhog is a terrific choice as well as Enviro Plus or Tri Grip.
  • In food service areas, drainage mats allow spills and debris to settle below the mat surface to promote safety and keep moisture and soils from spreading and our Comfort Flow is a perfect choice for this area.

Industrial Facility

Along with all the mats listed previously, the two types of mats most often needed in an industrial location are anti-slip mats and anti-fatigue mats.   A number of the Andersen mats can combine both features of anti-fatigue and anti-slip all in one mat. Anti-fatigue mats are necessary wherever workers must stand for long periods of time.
