How to Interpret This Chart

Traffic. Traffic refers to the number of people who will regularly walk on the mat or the kind of equipment that will be used on the mat. A light-duty traffic mat has an intended application for restaurant kitchens, food prep, food processing environments; whereas a heavy-duty mat has an intended application for manufacturing plants or assembly lines.

Mat Type. Mat type refers to the size or configuration of a mat. Most mats are available in stock sizes that are intended for general application. For unique layouts, some mats have custom sizing available. Interlocking tile mats are configurable and are a great way to cover a unique area.

Material. Most anti-fatigue mats intended for use in wet areas have a rubber or vinyl construction that offers maximum traction to reduce slips, trips and falls.

Pattern. The pattern refers to the texture or design of the surface of the mat. Anti-fatigue mats with a no-slip design often feature drainage holes that allow water or other liquids to pass through in order to provide traction.
