Why Is A Chair mat Necessary?
Typical commercial grade carpet is thinner today than in the past and
available "carpet casters" enable easier movement on carpet. Though it is
possible to move around without a chair mat, there are two reasons that make it
Chair mats protect your carpet.
Although newer carpet is dense enough to allow a chair to
roll, carpet fibers and backing are not designed to handle the extreme pressure
generated by casters. The down force of a chair is nearly <I>100 times greater
than a footstep!</I> Under this stress, unprotected carpet will lose fibers and
backing will break down, shortening the life of the carpet. A chair mat spreads
this down force and prevents damage to carpeting.
Chair mats reduce injury and fatigue.
Use of a chair mat can significantly reduce lower back and
joint strain because casters move more easily across a hard surface. In an
eight hour workday, an office worker moves his or her chair more than 250 times
per day. Some of these movements may be just inches, but they require up to
twice as much effort without a chair mat. Given the frequency of these
movements, a work space without a chair mat is more susceptible to Repetitive
Strain Injury (RSI).
