Is it better to rent or buy mats?
Renting a mat may seem cost effective in the beginning but over time it will make a large dent in your budget. When purchasing a mat you know the price upfront and you are not bound to a contract. Rental mats tend to be of lower quality and may not fit your needs. Rentals only come in standard sizes which may not work for your space. If you buy a mat you are able to have it made to a size that will fit your space perfectly. Overall, it is important to think about where your mat will be used and how much traffic will go across it.
How much does a custom mat cost?
The price of a custom depends on the amount of square feet. A good rule of thumb is $13.00 per square foot. Adding options such as yellow border, non-slip coating, cable covers, drainage holes all impact the overall price. AcroMat does not charge a customizing fee for custom mats.
How can you stop mats from slipping on the floor?
The most common methods are applying non-slip coating (GCX), using floor tape around the edges (MLS) or a double sided carpet tape underneath to secure the mat to the floor. Custom mats that are designed to fit perfectly usually can’t slip around.
What is the biggest mat you can make? Limit on dimensions?
There is no limit to the overall dimension for a custom mat. The limitation is usually transportation or handling. This can be overcome by having the mat shipped in sections then completing the final bonding onsite.
Do I have to have yellow borders?

How well do they hold up to oil/coolant fluid?
All the AcroMat 100-1 series mats are impervious to moisture as well as chemical and oil resistant. Even in oily environments the mats retain their anti-slip properties.
