Some of our chair mats are packed in a rolled format. We do this
for fast, efficient delivery as wells as easy handling. When our PVC
mats are rolled they take on a "memory” characteristic. PVC mats may be difficult to unroll back into its flat form if the material is cold.
Unpack your mat and leave for a minimum of 72 hours at room
temperature. Depending on environmental temperature, it may take 72
hours for the mat to regain its natural flat format. The warmer the
environment the quicker the mat will revert to its flat format and be
ready for use.
Once the mat has reached normal room temperature carefully unroll
the mat and place on a flat surface with the "bow” facing upward. Add
weights to corners of the mat if necessary (such as a small pile of
books). A PDF instruction sheet is available to download at the bottom
of this page.
As with most household or office product, handle your new chair
mat with care at all times to maintain quality and durability. Mats for
carpet application have grippers on the underside; take care when
handling a gripper mat.
We always advise you use extreme caution when using any of the
suggested methods for unrolling your new chair mat. We are not
responsible for damage or injury caused from the use of any of these
methods. If you require any further advice or assistance, please do not
hesitate to contact us.
