When it comes to choosing flooring, whether it’s for your home, office, or even trade shows, comfort and safety are two common considerations. One type of flooring that is becoming increasingly popular because of the comfort and safety it offers is anti-fatigue carpet tiles. Anti-fatigue flooring has numerous benefits to offer and this article is going to explore a few of them.
Provides traction: When safety is a concern, it’s important to choose flooring that won’t result in accidents like slips and falls. Compared to other floorings, like concrete, anti-fatigue carpet can help prevent accidents. It doesn’t move around once it’s in place and it can provide traction when people are walking or standing on it. This makes this flooring ideal for large areas, like convention centers for trade shows.
Easy to install: It’s no secret that flooring can be difficult to install. And once it’s installed, it typically can’t be moved around. Fortunately, that’s not the case for anti-fatigue carpet tiles. This flooring, along with other flooring options like multi-purpose EVA and wood grain foam floor tiles, is easy to install and can be moved from room to room, or even to a different building, as needed. With that in mind, you can change the flooring as your needs change. So if you decide it would be better in a room with more foot traffic, it can simply be re-installed in another area.
Reduces pain: If you have to stand for a long time, standing on hard flooring can lead to back pain, foot pain, and even poor blood circulation. Anti-fatigue flooring can reduce the stress on joints and muscles, therefore lessening pain. The flexibility offered from these carpet tiles can make standing for a long time easy and pain-free. You’ll feel less pressure in your feet, back, and joints — this flooring can even help improve posture by allowing for a comfortable standing position instead of making you feel uncomfortable or creating a tendency to slouch.
With the carpet industry accounting for 51% of the U.S. flooring market, many people are investing in anti-fatigue and foam carpet tiles. This type of flooring has multiple benefits to offer and can be used in several environments.
Cheerleading is a popular sport among a variety of age groups — from toddlers to college students, there are several people who participate in cheerleading all around the world. And because cheerleading involves so many intricate moves and stunts, it’s important for cheerleading studios to have the right equipment. So let’s take a look at a few things to keep in mind when looking for the right flooring for a cheerleading studio.
Level of shock absorption: When it comes to choosing tumbling mats for cheerleading, it’s essential to choose a flooring that is not rigid — surfaces like tile or concrete offer a minimal amount of shock absorption. This means that when cheerleaders land on an unyielding floor, they’re going to have a high risk of injury. Fortunately, softer surfaces like foam floor mats can offer the level of shock absorption needed when doing cheerleading stunts. Cheerleading can involve a lot of dangerous stunts and activities that require flooring with cushion and shock absorption, so it’s best to avoid inflexible surfaces.
Amount of traffic: Floor surfaces can have varying levels of traffic depending on how many people use the surface regularly. Most likely, flooring in cheerleading studios is going to get a lot of traffic between practices and competitions. This means the flooring has to be durable enough to withstand high traffic. Gymnastics tumbling mats are designed to keep their form and remain sturdy even when they’re used frequently. Surfaces options like wood grain floor mats can even be great for hallways or changing rooms where the floor should still be padded but doesn’t need to look like a mat.
Budget boundaries: Of course, cost is always a concern. This is especially true for studios just starting out or companies looking to redo the flooring in large areas. Fortunately, surface options like wood grain floor mats and foam floor mats are very cost-effective. Not only is the upfront price reasonable, but they are easy to clean and easy to install, meaning they’re worth the cost in the long run. Furthermore, this type of flooring can be moved as needed, allowing it to serve multiple purposes if necessary.
With the CDC showing that only 23% of U.S. adults did enough exercise in 2018, it’s more important than ever to encourage people to be active. And with the right flooring, whether it’s wood grain floor mats or crash mats, those interested in cheerleading can participate safely.
