Anti Fatigue Mats
Standing for long periods of time in the same place, often on a hard concrete floor, can have a number of negative effects, not only for the individual standing, but also for the employer. Lower back pain, muscle stiffness and poor blood circulation are just a few of the potential symptoms, which all lead to increased physical fatigue, reducing concentration levels and ultimately having a detrimental effect on productivity.
Fortunately, if you employ people in these type of roles, Cannon Hygiene has the solution: Anti-Fatigue Mats
How Do Anti-Fatigue Mats Work?
The main issue associated with standing in the same place for a long period of time is the impact it has on blood flow throughout the body. When your leg muscles are static they have to work hard to keep the body in an upright position. The result is that the body has to pump more blood to the legs and this means the heart must work harder. This whole process uses high amounts of energy and therefore leads to fatigue.
Estimates suggest that standing in the same place for an extended period of time uses 20% more energy. Our durable rubber Anti-Fatigue mats will make standing easier, saving workers energy and helping them to remain productive.
Benefits of Anti-Fatigue Matting
Our mats have patented rubber cushioning technology, which has been approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), so we can guarantee the quality and effectiveness of our anti-fatigue mats. In addition, all our mats come as part of our lift and lay floorcare solution, so you can be sure they remain effective, safe and hygienic.
When it comes to the process of installing anti fatigue matting at your location we will consult with you over every single detail of the project, ensuring that we choose the best mats for your requirements.
