Anti-fatigue welding mats are the floor covering of choice for industrial environments where welding, cutting, brazing, or grinding is performed. In these work areas, workers are often standing for long periods, leading to fatigue which can negatively impact worker productivity. Improving worker comfort through the use of a quality anti-fatigue welding mat can pay big dividends in increased output, higher quality, improved ergonomics and safety, and lower costs.
Choosing an Anti-Fatigue Welding Mat
Work areas where welding, cutting, brazing and grinding are carried out are notoriously harsh environments. Choosing a quality mat for these work environments involves a consideration of the following:
Resistance to sparks and hot metal shards. Good quality welding mats are capable of resisting high temperature sparks and material that may fall onto the mat.
Resistance to sharp metal debris. Sharp metal debris which deposits onto a welding mat can be ground into the mat surface by foot traffic, causing degradation and wear. Good quality mats are constructed of rubber compounds which resist the cutting and grinding effect of foot traffic on sharp metal debris.
High comfort, good traction. A good anti-fatigue welding mat will provide a durable yet comfortable standing surface. In addition, good mats offer superior traction in the presence of cleaning fluids and anti-splatter welding greases which may fall onto the map.
