Chair mats often bring up the concern for personal safety, for example, many people often do not look where they are walking and may be worried about tripping over their chair mat. The same can be said for walking in the dark at night in your home office and risking falling over from catching an edge on your mat. While cheaper mats do come with straight edges that can be a safety concern, there are plenty of higher quality mats available that come standard with rounded protective edges designed specifically so people do not trip over them. Rounded or beveled edges are also helpful for a smooth transition to the carpet or floor when rolling off the mat.
The primary purpose of owning a chair mat is to protect the surface that you roll on with your office chair. No matter what surface your office chair currently sits on, such as hardwood floors, carpet, or linoleum, there are mats designed specifically for each of the aforementioned. Office chair casters can easily scratch hardwood floors, leave imprint marks in carpet, and also damage the quality of your carpet from the consistent rolling. In fact, many carpet manufacturers will void their warranty if an office chair will be used on it without the use of a chair mat. Carpet mats typically come with a set of cleats located underneath the chair mat that allow the mat to stay firm and in place when rolling across. Mats for hardwood floors or linoleum do not have the cleats underneath the mat, however their weight allows for the mat to stay in one place rather than sliding around as one might fear.
After considering your office decor, the next step is to assess the profile of the average person that will be sitting in your chairs. If you are a doctor’s office that caters to children you will want to make sure you have guest chairs that are small enough for a child combined with enough standard sized chairs to accommodate their parents as well. If you work at a hospital or environment where your guest chairs will be sat in continuously for multiple hours a day it would be worth your investment to find a heavy-duty guest chair that has a higher weight capacity for larger patients or customers. No matter what application your chairs are going to be used in it is important that they are built to last and will not break when a client or customer is sitting in it. It is best to avoid big box retailers that sell cheap guest chairs with flimsy construction and instead direct your search efforts to the internet where you can get an unbiased assessment of a guest chair complete with the product specifications and weight limit.
