Chair Mats Made of Glass
Protecting high-traffic areas with chair mats made of glass is the most excellent solution since they are long-lasting, transparent, and cost-effective. Because of the thickness of the material, it will not sink into any carpet pile, making it an excellent choice for deep pile carpets in particular.
Glass chair mats, which often have a flat, even back, are excellent on hard surfaces.
Glass floor mats are manufactured using tempered glass, five times the strength of standard glass. Because of this, they can handle weights of up to 450 kilogrammes, making them the ideal chair mat for large and tall users and workplaces that are open 24/7/365.
Glass mats are highly durable and provide protection for the floor for a long time; they never need to be changed.
Plastic chair mats are often more affordable than glass mats due to their more affordable material. On the other hand, glass mats are far more long-lasting than plastic equivalents. Because of how quickly they wear out, it is necessary to replace them significantly more frequently. Glass mats, on the other hand, are designed to last theoretically forever and to keep their like-new appearance even after years of use.
When seen from this angle, a glass chair mat is an investment that is considerably more prudent over the long run.
Comparing the Appearance of Glass Mats with Plastic Mats
For visual appeal, glass mats come out on top every time. Their streamlined and elegant appearance gives the impression that the workplace has been elevated. Even though the glass may become soiled occasionally, it is not difficult to clean and keep using even the most fundamental glass cleaner.
On the other hand, the more frequently plastic chair mats are used, the more likely they will become scratched and dirty. Even if they can be cleaned and do not need to be replaced, it takes more effort to clean them.
Customisation Options for Glass Mats and Plastic Chair Mats
In contrast to their less refined plastic counterparts, Glass mats may be fully tailored to match the interior style of any workplace space, which makes glass chair mats a superior choice for high-end interior design projects. The most basic customisation is a solid back painting done in any colour. Glass may be digitally printed with any pattern, making it possible to create a unique workstation. The print can resemble wood or stone and grass or a sports surface. There is no limit to the possibilities.
The Functionality of a Glass Mat Compared to a Plastic Mat
Plastic chair mats risk being damaged over time, making them significantly less pleasing to the eye. Rolling an office chair over a damaged plastic mat generates friction, which can move and sit uncomfortably.
Plastic chair mats are not a one-size-fits-all answer when placing a chair mat on different surfaces, such as carpet and wood. Plastic chair mats come in a variety of sizes. Consequently, you can find that it is necessary to acquire mats with varying thicknesses to guarantee that the material below is adequately protected.
Glass chair mats, on the other hand, can support a far greater load without becoming damaged. The glass desk mats can support weights of up to one thousand pounds without impairing their effectiveness. They can also be applied in any thickness and on any surface without causing any damage to either one.
