Chair Mats Buyers Guide
• When buying an office chair a lot of users don’t consider the impact that a chair might have on the flooring on which it is operating at. Since almost every chair that is used beside a desk uses plastic castors which allow moving the chair around the room, the floor(both hard floors like tiles or wood and carpet floors) might become damaged because of the constant movement of the chair. This is why it is worth investing in a chair mat.
• Chair mats are very affordable and they are definitely worth spending money on especially when you have new floor or carpet fitted and you want to keep it in the best shape for as long as possible. Placing a chair mat under a chair protects the area of the floor which is the most subject to wearing caused by the chair moving. It also protects the floor from accidental spillages of coffee or tea which are quite common when working at a desk.
• Chair mats are made of durable and easy to clean materials such as PVC or Polycarbonate, these materials also provide a smooth surface on which you can easily move around in your chair. As chair mats are used across various industries and environments they are manufactured in neutral colours which fit into any style of interior – most of mats are clear or semi-transparent with frost effect.
• There are two types of floor mats – hard floor chair mats and carpet chair mats. The main difference between these two types is the backing they come with. Hard floor mats require backing which will keep the mat securely in place but won’t affect the surface in any way and there are two solutions commonly found in hard floor mats backing – for matt floors that have porous surface you can use smooth back chair mats; for high polish hard floors it might be more convenient to use chair mats with some form of non-residue adhesive. Carpet chair mats usually have their backing fitted with plastic spikes which melt into carpet surface providing a very stable and sturdy surface for the chair. Because of the spikes on their back, carpet chair mats should not be used on hard floors as they could easily scratch the surface and also they wouldn’t be able to stay in place.
• Chair mats come in a limited choice of shapes – the most common ones are rectangular chair mats which easily fit under most types of desks; users who have pedestals incorporated in their desks often decide to get a rectangular chair mat with a lip that extends the mat surface which can slide in between the pedestals. There is also a limited choice of oval and curved chair mats if you want to get a mat bit different than the standard shapes.
