Outdoor Matting Solutions: Polypropylene Mats VS Carpet

14 Nov

What makes an ‘outdoor mat’ different from an ‘indoor mat’? In general, the difference between these two commercial safety products is material. Indoor mats are typically made of high-twist, heat resistant olefin yarn (carpet mats). Such material is often too fragile to withstand harsh weather, leading matting manufacturers to use special types of materials for outdoor / weatherproof mats. One such material is polypropylene, a thermoplastic polymer that is used to make a variety of tough and resilient products. Polypropylene is among the most common outdoor matting material, a trend made popular by the widely-known Waterhog line of commercial floor mats.
