Are chair mats suitable for underfloor heating?

Not all chair mats are suitable for underfloor heating. Suitability depends on the plastic compound that is used when producing the chair mat.

We recommend not to use PVC chair mats on underfloor heating or in direct sunlight. PVC chair mats contain phthalate plasticizers. These outgas from PVC over time, particularly when the material is heated. Health risks include asthma, breathing problems and unpleasent smells.

All of our chair mats are 100% PVC free and they can all be used on underfloor heating.
