Q: What are the benefits of using anti-fatigue flooring?
A: Anti-fatigue flooring is designed to offer a wide range of benefits to employees and employers. Anti-Fatigue flooring can increase worker productivity, reduce slips, trips and falls and improve the overall health of your employees.
Q: How does anti-fatigue flooring improve overall health of my employees?
A: Standing long-term, especially on hard, unforgiving concrete leads to lower back pain, swelling of joints and poor circulation that can lead to varicose veins. Standing on anti-fatigue flooring allows for continuous muscle movement which leads to increased blood flow to the legs, feet and back. Continuous blood circulation reduces fatigue, alleviates back pain and reduces swelling.
Q: How does anti-fatigue flooring increase employee productivity?
A: Fatigue eventually leads to lack of focus and concentration on the task at hand. Anti-fatigue flooring reduces worker fatigue allowing them to remain focused on the job at hand.
Q: What if one tile gets damaged?
A: Simply remove it and replace with a new tile.
Q: How do you connect a ramp to the side of the tile that has connectors?
A: Simply cut off the interlocks on the ramp.
Q: What is meant by "customizable in 3" increments"?
A: Unlike other modular tiles available in the market, our patented LockSafe connection can be cut every 3" without losing the ability to connect to adjoining tiles.
Q: How do I cut ErgoDeck tiles?
A: ErgoDeck is a robust product. While it can be cut with a utility knife, we suggest a band saw or similar cutting equipment for larger installations.
Q: Do I need to use adhesives or special tools?
A: One of the biggest benefits of the LockSafe system is a secure, dependable connection that snaps together and holds tight in-use, but zips apart for reconfiguration or replacement! No tools are necessary for the assembly or disassembly, however, a rubber mallet is sometimes used in installation to quickly "lock" the connectors. Alternatively, they can be "locked" by walking along the edges of each tile.
Q: What does “general purpose” mean?
A: General Purpose is intended to be used in areas with heavy foot traffic. We manufacture ErgoDeck General Purpose using the same mold as that of our Heavy Duty product but with a softer, lower durometer material for greater anti-fatigue benefit.
Q: Can I use it over grating or catwalks?
A: General purpose is a softer compound intended for ergonomics over solid surfaces. For grating, we suggest using our ErgoDeck Heavy-Duty or Cleated products.
Q: What is GRITSHIELD?
A: GRITSHIELD is our own formulation of dependable traction using clear, recycled silica for sure-footedness in slippery areas. The clear property allows GRITSHIELD to be used over any color product, including yellow ramps!
Q: Can it be power washed?
A: We don't suggest power washing any gritted product. If your cleaning protocol requires pressure washing we suggest using our Cleated ErgoDeck products.

Q: Are the colors shown on your website the exact color I should expect to receive?
A: No, because monitors vary so there may be a slight variance in the color. If color choice is critical, we suggest that you order a sample. Due to manufacturing processes and material dye lots, color can vary, but our products fall within an industry-standard acceptable variation.
