Anti-fatigue mats are widely used in the workplace to offer more comfort and safety to employees who must stand for long periods of time. It's been scientifically proven that workers who must stand for any length of time as part of their job develop lower limb disorders, including Plantar Fasciitis. Anti-fatigue mats offer users a cushioning effect resulting in less discomfort and better circulation to the lower limbs, thereby reducing leg and foot tiredness. They also feature a thermal insulating effect which works to combat the cold air that rises from concrete floors.

The anti-slip surfaces offer better stability and grip to the user and are suitable for all types of movement.
