Re: [Histonet] Floor in a pathology laboratory

From:Gayle Callis

Our chairs roll over the commercial low nap (sp) area rugs without any 
problems.  Maybe it was the chair wheels and not the area rug causing the 
problem.  It pays to make sure the rugs are located in such a way that 
wheels stay on the rug surface at all times.  These area rugs are very 
heavy duty designed for entryway use, not very pretty or glamorous, but 
they work fine for any work area involved with paraffin.  We have never had 
these rugs "rise up" on us due to the weight of the rug itself.  They have 
heavy black rubber backing and do not slip nor bunch up. We also use them 
in front of sinks.
