Scraper, brush, logo, anti-fatigue – what does it all mean? There are many different kinds of floor mats created for different purposes, and it can be difficult to figure out exactly what your facility needs. Choosing the right floor mats for the right areas of your facility is critical. 

So, let’s break down the different types of commercial floor mats to help you find the right ones for your business!

1. Classic Floor Mats

Classic floor mats are indoor mats that protect your floor while accenting the ambience of your space. These versatile floor mats will keep dirt, dust and moisture from permeating your floors while providing beauty and comfort for your clients and employees. 

Where to use classic floor mats: Pretty much any area of an indoor business space, especially high-traffic zones and slip-and-fall risk zones.

2. Brush and Scraper Mats

Brush and scraper mats are a necessity for almost every business with a door. It’s the easiest and most cost-effective way to prevent long-term floor damage and reduce the amount of dirt, dust and bacteria that builds up inside your facility. These mats are equipped with bristles to scrape away dirt, snow, and other undesirable substances before they reach your floors.

Where to use brush and scraper mats: Just outside of your entrances, or any areas where customers and employees are transitioning between indoor and outdoor spaces or dirty and clean spaces. 

3. Logo and Message Mats

Floor space is just one more area where you can be promoting your brand. Logo and message mats are a great way to reinforce your company culture and message throughout your facility. These mats are great at entrances, adding a sense of class and aiding in your marketing efforts while also keeping your business space clean. 

Where to use logo and message mats: At your business entrance or other areas where you want to reinforce your branding.

4. Comfort Mats

Comfort mats are durable, with anti-slip and anti-fungal properties. They are durable and safe while providing extra comfort and protection.

Where to use comfort mats: These mats are great for areas like changing rooms, food preparation areas, and other places that need a little extra cushioning.

5. Anti-Fatigue Mats

We offer airflex mats, which are specially designed to contour to the foot for maximum comfort. These mats reduce the negative effects from standing for long periods of time, helping your employees to stay healthier and happier throughout the workday and increasing overall productivity. 

Where to use anti-fatigue mats: Workstations or areas where employees or customers are required to stand.
