For years, stylists and barbers alike have struggled with the appeal of a soft mat to stand on during long work shifts versus the aversion to a hair-filled monstrosity underfoot. Rhino salon mats' new breakthrough design utilizes a polyurethane inner cushion that is entirely protected from outside elements by what they call an “Integral Skin”.
The sponge cushion of this mat has been carefully engineered to strike the best balance between compression and resistance for the user. This is important in order to foster improved circulation and blood flow to the feet, legs and back. Other manufacturers offer soft cushions for salon staff that have not been rigorously tested and developed to the exacting standards that Rhino salon mats have been. Their new anti fatigue Comfort Craft salon mat engages the user’s muscles ever so slightly as they stand on and move around the mat. These micro-movements in muscle groups get blood flow going so the user feels less fatigued from standing. In addition, the polyurethane sponge absorbs and disperses shock easing stress to the user’s joints. Rhino believes in a simple philosophy: increased productivity comes from the salon professional’s comfort. All anti fatigue mats offered by Rhino are proudly made in the USA.
Hair stylist Jenn Janor tested the new mat out for us and after using it for one day said, “I am loving this mat; I’m not going to lie! I am not even thinking about my feet and legs for once!” She was also impressed by, “…how easily hair is swept off the mat. My boss insists on a clean floor in our stations at all times. I have no complaints on how this mat cleans up.”
Currently there are three sizes available in the new material: 4’ x 5’ Hexagon, 3’ x 5’ Hexagon and 2’ x 3’ Rectangle (this size is typically used by the shampoo bowls but certainly would be beneficial behind the receptionist desk). According to Rhino, more sizes are in the research and development phase and will soon be available for purchase.
