How to Interpret This Chart

Traffic. Traffic refers to the number of people who will regularly walk on the mat or the kind of equipment that will be used on the mat. Light traffic mats for oily areas are best suited for individual workstations and custom work platforms, whereas mats designed for heavy traffic are fit for manufacturing plants, production lines or other areas with heavy equipment or machinery.

Mat Type. Most mats are available in stock sizes that are intended for general application. For unique layouts, some mats have custom sizing available. Interlocking tile mats are configurable and are a great way to cover a unique area.

Material. Anti-fatigue mats designed for oily areas are manufactured to provide maximum oil resistance and traction to reduce slips, trips and falls. Rubber nitrile mats are popular options for areas like machine shops or automotive facilities since they provide the highest level of oil and grease resistance.

Pattern. Anti-fatigue mats for oily areas often feature a diamond or pebble surface pattern that offers maximum traction to reduce slips, trips and falls.
