Is your carpet looking worn, dirty or discolored? Chair mats extend the life of your carpet by spreading out the pressure from the chair casters; in fact, many carpet manufacturers void their warranty when a chair with casters is used without a chair mat. Chair mats provide a smooth, even surface to roll across.
Using a chair mat can reduce the risk of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). In an eight hour workday, the average worker moves his or her chair more than 250 times per day. These movements require up to twice as much effort without a chair mat. Use of a chair mat reduces fatigue by allowing for easier rolling across your workspace with less back and leg strain.
