Glass Chair Mat Edge - How Thick Of A Glass Chair Mat Do You Need?

When choosing a Glass Office Chair Mat for your office space, you might be concerned about how thick the mat needs to be. After all, it needs to be able to support you without breaking, even on a thick, high-pile carpet, and it needs to be possible for you to roll on and off of so that you can smoothly move throughout your workday and workspace. This post covers everything you need to know about Glass Chair Mat thicknesses so that you can make the best choice for your office space.

How Thick Should My Chair Mat Be?

Any chair mat for your office, especially a Glass Chair Mat needs to be thick enough to support you and your chair, while you’re moving around your office during the day. It should be thick enough to support the movement, both slow and quick so that you don’t have to worry about breaking your mat throughout the day. Luckily, all Vitrazza® Glass Chair Mats come with a Transferable Lifetime Warranty that ensures that you’ll always get the value you need out of any chair mat. 

You also need to make sure that your Glass Chair Mat is easy to roll on and off of throughout your day so that you can have a seamless workday. All of our Glass Chair Mats are ¼” thick, making them just strong enough to support you, and thin enough for you to have maximum mobility while you are at your desk. The answers to this and other helpful frequently asked questions can be found on our FAQ page

How Do You Measure For An Office Chair Mat? 

When figuring out what size Glass Chair Mat you need for your space, make sure you measure the entire space that you want to be accessible by the chair, without covering up your beautiful floor. This is important when figuring out exactly which mat you need for your space. The shape is also important and can affect how big of a mat you end up ordering for your office. We provide easy chair mat measuring tips to find out the best size for your office space.

What Is A Bevel On A Chair Mat & How Does It Help? 

All of our Glass Chair Mats come with a mini-bevel, to help you glide on and off of your Glass Chair Mat smoothly. This is a smooth angle on the edge of your Glass Chair Mat that allows for a softened roll on and off the mat, making it easy to access all parts of your office. This means that our Glass Chair Mats can be thick enough to be sturdy, without sacrificing maneuverability.

Does The Type Of Flooring I Have Make A Difference? 

When it comes to figuring out the ideal thickness of a Glass Chair Mat, the type of flooring you have does not make a difference. Carpet doesn’t make your Glass Chair Mat any weaker, nor does wood or tile flooring. Our Glass Chair Mats can be used universally, and they all come in a sturdy ¼” thick safety glass that’s perfect for any space.

Will A Glass Chair Mat Break? 

Ideally, any Glass Chair Mat shouldn’t break, but on the off chance that it does, remember that all Vitrazza Glass Chair Mats are made from Super-Strong Turfer Glass and they come with a Transferrable Lifetime Warranty. You can refer to our warranty page for more details. However, all of our Glass Chair Mats are made with safety glass, which means they shouldn’t break, even in transport to your home or office building.
