Protective floor mat – adapt the model to your needs
Swivel chairs are an important part of any office. Ergonomic, solid and easily adjustable to the posture chairs will make sure a long-hour work does not burden your spine. Nevertheless wheeled chairs are not flawless. They may scratch your floor. How to avoid it? A suitable chair mat is the key. Transparent, made of thick plastic mat will prevent mechanical damage to your panels or tiles, and chair skidding.
Which chair mat is the best?
When you decide to buy a chair mat, take into account both its function and size. With respect to a small desk, the best decision will be to take an item about 90 x 120 cm. If you need more space because you slide on the chair from the desk to nearby open case – pick a larger unit.
Remember that a protective floor mat should also be adapted to the type of floor finish. The choice will be different if you have a carpet (anti-skidding) or smooth floor (panels, woodblock floor or tiles).
Would you like to raise ergonomics? If so, choose a special anti-fatigue mat which reduces the pressure of the floor on the body by as many as a few dozen percent. Connect it with the desk footrest and forget about blood circulation issues or backache.
