Buyer's Guide for Selecting the Right Mat
How to Select the Best Floor Mat for the Job
There are a wide variety of workplace floor mats. Whether it’s hallway runners or mats for cleanrooms, there’s a mat for almost any need. When looking for a mat for your business, however, the variety can be a little daunting. How should you go about choosing the mat that’s just right for you?
The first thing to do is to determine the need. What’s the purpose of the mat you’re looking for? Is it to provide cushion and support for an employee who will be standing for long periods of time in the same spot? Or do you need a mat to prevent slips and falls?
Determining the need will narrow down your search to a type of mat, making the process much easier. Whatever your workplace needs, NoTrax™ has just the right mat for you. Our mats are made with the highest quality materials and are subject to thorough product testing.

NoTrax Product Testing
Once you’ve selected a mat that’s right for you, the next factor to consider is durability. All NoTrax products are subjected to a number of performance tests by independent laboratories before they are sent to market.
Some of these tests include depression which ensures the mats will retain their integrity over time, tensile and tear tests to predict a product’s durability in a workplace environment, and anti-microbial testing for cleanroom mats to evaluate the mat’s ability to reduce workplace contamination.
No matter what product you decide is right for your business, you can make your decision with the confidence that your mat has been manufactured to withstand the wear and tear of the workplace.
Not only are all NoTrax products tested to ensure their workplace performance, but they are also guaranteed and backed by a full warranty under normal conditions of use. NoTrax mats incorporate Uni-Fusion™ technology which means that they are virtually one single piece of material. The bonding and lamination formats with Uni-Fusion™ come with a lifetime guarantee.
If your mat doesn’t perform the way it’s supposed to, then we’ll replace it or issue you a refund. For a comprehensive outline of our warranty and for more information regarding ordering, pricing and customer service, visit our website or contact us directly.
