What is a glass chair mat?
An extra little floor for your office chair to protect the actual floor from their plastic wheels. They are unique to other material chair mats in at least two ways.
- The rigidness of tempered glass makes rolling on soft floors like rugs easier.
- Since these chair mats are clear, it makes them very adaptable for any professional office space setting.
Glass Chair Mats Limit Mobility
The area of a chair mat is usually between 2 to 5 square feet. This may seem like enough space for your workstation, but think about rolling over across the room to grab a printed piece of paper, or to shred it.
Longer & Delicate, Installation Process
The is process is still simple, but translucent glass makes it easy for any dirt underneath them. Be sure to that installation space is clean and on even ground.
Dirt Gets Under The Glass Chair Mat
These types of floor protection require daily maintenance because dirt gets under the few centimetres between the chair mat and ground.
Glass Chair Mats Chip From Wear & Tear
Your enormous glass sheet will be shipped out hopefully with no damages.
Even if your package comes in one piece, the sides may chip from getting rolled over daily.
More Expensive Than Alternatives
Compared to alternative materials, Glass is by far the most expensive type of chair mat. They are double the price of transparent synthetic chair mats.
There are other ways of protecting your floor from chair scratching like equipping soft wheels casters.
