For years your only choice for a chair mat was an acrylic material that had no warranty and would easily scratch, slide, crack and break. Then came the invention of the vinyl chair mat with Cleats. These cleats are sharp pointed pin cleats that stick into the carpet and also into your hand.
Now E S Robbins, an innovator in chair mat materials, has invented the AnchorBar. No more sharp cleats! The AnchorBar is made up of small blunt bars facing opposite directions as shown in the picture below. These bars hold the mat in place with no danger of harming your hands or carpet. Testing has shown the AnchorBar lasting longer than traditional cleat style mats. For more information on chair mat material please see our Materials page. For a better mat choose AnchorBar!!!!
