Talk about Smart Step Therapeutic
Shari Stephens: Smart Step
Therapeutic Flooring has been a
leader in the premium anti-fatigue mat
business since 2000. The benefits
of our premium standing solutions
have combined unmatched comfort
and durability to create healthier work
environments for more than 20 major
industries. This includes successfully

restaurants and hospitality chains.
Smart Step is also seeing success
with an expansion into the health care
and pharmaceutical arenas.
Smart Step anti-fatigue mats are
custom designed to provide maximum
safety, comfort and durability. Our
products are made with Smart Tech
Polyurethane (STP). Features include
trip resistant beveled edges, nonslip travel prevention, easy-to-clean
properties, a 10-year warranty and
are proudly made in the U.S.
Why is the topic of anti-fatigue
The grocery industry, like many other
industries, requires employees to
stand for long periods of time. This
can contribute to foot, leg, knee and
back-related injuries. For years, the
grocery industry has used traditional,
perforated or rubber mats. We have
found that employees who stand all
day need more support.
Our mats help reduce stress
on the lower back, legs and feet.
Having an anti-fatigue mat that offers
a therapeutic solution can reduce
worker’s comp claims, time off from
work and improve employee morale.
We believe a comfortable employee
is a happy employee.
How do Smart Step products meet
Our versatile product line allows us
to meet the needs of retail personnel no matter where they work in the
store. Smart Step Mats are made of
100 percent polyurethane. All of our
products are made in molds, which
creates a solid, one-piece product.
Our mats are anti-microbial, will
always lie flat, and never delaminate,
compress or wear through.
We offer a Performance and
Designer Series. Our Performance
Series includes: Supreme, Supreme
Pro, Maxum, Tough Guy and Mobile
Mats. Our Supreme Mats are 3/4-
inch thick. They are fully customizable
and are offered in PuzzlePiece runners. Our runners can be made in any
length desired. This accommodates
meat counters, deli counters and
pharmacies. Our slotted Supreme
Pro Mats offer a solution for moderately wet applications while never
compromising comfort and durability.
Our Maxum Mat is slightly firmer at
5/8-inch thick and offers a textured
surface for additional traction. Our
Tough Guy is also 5/8-inch thick
with a smooth surface. Our Mobile
Performance Mats are designed
for employees on-the-go and have
a handle for ease of portability and
We also have the Smart Step
Designer Series, which combines the
best of performance with exciting colors and bold patterns. This series will
complement a business décor while
never compromising performance.
