Chair Mats - Office Chair Mat, Desk Chair Mat & Computer Chair Mats for Carpets
If your office features traditional workspaces with desks and office chairs, you could benefit from our chair mats and office chair mats. Designed to protect wooden, tiled, carpeted flooring from the use of office chairs, our office chair mats and computer chair mats for carpets minimise the damage caused by the legs and castor wheels of desk and computer chairs. If you have a carpeted working environment or office, heavy desk chairs can cause unsightly indentations and can wear away the carpet more quickly, which is why our computer chair mats for carpets are the perfect solution. Our innovative chair mats from Mats4U will help to protect your carpet, as they feature a strong gripper back to ensure the mat stays in place and doesn’t move around freely as you move the office chair. A chair mat or desk chair mat puts a layer between the legs of the office chair and the carpet. If your office has wooden or tiled flooring, chair mats can also help to prevent your floors from being scratched. Available in several shapes and sizes, a desk chair mat fits perfectly under your desk for maximum floor protection. Anti-static chair mats are also available, which are ideally placed near printers and photocopiers, or as computer chair mats.
Don’t worry about the chair mat looking too intrusive or affecting your décor as the transparent design allows your floorings to show through. Plus, our chair mats are either made from Phthalate-Free PVC or Polycarbonate, which makes them durable and long-lasting, withstanding even the busiest of office environments. The robust material also delivers ergonomic benefits as your office chair wheels are able to glide over the surface, minimising leg fatigue.

Why buy our Office Chair Mats?
The issue with office chair wheels and legs is that over time, they can cause damage to your floors, regardless of whether they are carpeted, laminated, or tiled. This damage occurs when you repeatedly move back and forth in your chair, and it can eventually lead to the need for expensive floor replacement.
Another common problem with desk chairs is leg fatigue, especially when placed on carpeted or textured floors. The traction provided by these types of floors can make it difficult to move around freely, restricting your mobility.
So here is why you might consider buying office chair mats.
Our office mats provide floor protection, and enhanced mobility, offer ergonomic support, reduce noise, increase efficiency, and add aesthetic appeal to your workspace. They are cost-effective solutions to prevent floor damage and leg fatigue while allowing for smooth and easy chair movement.
Different Material Chair Mats
Chair mats are available in various materials, each offering different characteristics and benefits.
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride): PVC chair mats are a popular choice due to their affordability and durability. They provide a smooth surface for easy chair movement and are suitable for both carpeted and hard floors. PCV mats are resistant to wear, tear, and staining making them a practical option for everyday use.
Polycarbonate: Polycarbonate chair mats are known for their exceptional strength and transparency. They are highly durable and can withstand heavy use without cracking or breaking. Polycarbonate mats are suitable for all floor types, including carpets, and offer excellent floor protection. They are also free of harmful chemicals like phthalates, making them the more environmentally friendly option
Glass: Glass chair mats are sleek, stylish, and highly durable. They provide a smooth surface for easy chair movement and are suitable for all types of flooring. Glass chair mats can complement modern office designs and offer superior protection against wear and tear.
Anti-Static: Anti-static chair mats are specially designed to dissipate static electricity, helping to prevent damage to sensitive electronic equipment and reduce the risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD) incidents. These mats are commonly used in environments where static electricity can be a concern, such as computer labs, server rooms, electronics manufacturing facilities, or areas with flammable material.
Different Shapes of Office Chair Mats - Lip, Rectangular or Contoured?
We provide a range of chair mat styles that adds to suit your office environment. Choose between a standard rectangular chair mat, a chair mat with a lip or a sleek contoured shape design.
Rectangular: Rectangular chair mats are the most traditional and widely used shape. They are designed to cover a rectangular area on the floor, providing a smooth surface for chair movement and floor protection. Rectangular mats are versatile and suitable for most desk setups.
Lip: Lip-shaped chair mats have an extension or "lip" at one end that slides under the desk. This design covers the area in front of the desk and extends underneath it, protecting the floor where the chair is typically positioned. Lip-shaped mats are ideal for desks with limited clearance or defined workspace areas.
Contoured: Contoured chair mats are tailored to follow the shape of an L-shaped or corner desk. They have a curved or cutout section that fits around the desk, creating a visually appealing look. These mats provide floor protection while maintaining a cohesive appearance.
Chair Mats for Carpeted Floors and Hard Floors
Our chair mats are designed to cater to both carpeted floors and hard floors with different backing options. For hard floors like laminate, wood, or tiles, we offer chair mats with a flat backing. This packing provides stability and ensures that the mat stays in place without any movement or slipping.
On the other hand, for carpeted floors, we have chair mats with a gripper back. The gripper backing is specifically designed to grip onto the carpeted fibres, preventing the mat from shifting or sliding as you move in your chair. This feature ensures that the chair mat stays securely in place on the carpeted surface.
By offering these different backing options, we ensure that our chair mats provide the best performance and functionality for your specific floor type. You can choose the appropriate backing option based on your flooring needs, ensuring a secure and stable chair mat placement without any unwanted movement.

How to Clean a Chair Mat?
Cleaning a chair mat is a simple process. Follow these steps to keep your chair mat in great condition:
Remove debris: Get rid of any loose dirt or debris by using a broom, or vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment, or gently shaking the mat.
Prepare a cleaning solution: Mix mild soap or dish detergent with warm water. This solution works well for PVC or vinyl mats. For sensitive materials like polycarbonate, refer to the manufacturer's instructions for recommended cleaning solutions
Scrub the mat: Use a soft cloth or sponge dipped in the cleaning solution to gently scrub the chair mat. Pay extra attention to stained or soiled areas. Avoid abrasive brushes or harsh chemicals that may damage the surface.
Rinse or wipe down: Rinse the chair mat thoroughly with clean water to remove any soap residue. Alternatively, wipe it down with a damp cloth or sponge.
Dry the mat: Allow the chair mat to air dry completely before placing it back on the floor. Avoid direct sunlight or excessive heat sources, as they can wrap or damage the mat.
