Matting Solutions for Standing Airline Employees

Case Study


From security officers to gate agents, maintaining professionalism and providing active service is a high priority in the airline industry. In order to provide strong customer service and efficiency, most airline companies prefer that their employees stand while they work. Many workers are turning to thin rubber or foam mats to reduce strain they may feel from standing all day. In many cases, workers are layering mats on top of one another with the hopes they feel additional relief.

“I understand the importance of good customer service in airline industry and why our employers require us to stand. After they installed these new mats, I have been noticing a significant difference in my posture and fatigue after a long day of work”
