The UNDERSIDE is 100% nitrile rubber which means that it is grease and microbe resistant (ideal for all situations, including bathrooms and kitchens) and is machine washable. The little nubs on the bottom help grip to most floor surfaces, hard or carpet (loop pile but not cut pile).
The SURFACE is a solution dyed nylon carpet top mat. The fibres are durable non-crush polyamide (high-twist nylon) and give a plush appearance. The logo will last as long as the mat does.
DURABILITY: These mats are made to last and with the right environment, care etc. then they can last up to 10 years before looking thread bare*.

They won’t move or create a tripping hazard
They look good
They are anti-static
They are grease resistant
They are hard wearing
They won’t smell
n.b. This is the same mat – of a higher quality – that is used by rental and laundry companies all over the world
* The average company is getting 5 years wear – domestic certainly 10 years
