Top 10 Glass Floor Mats 2020 Reviews

If you work in an office environment, you’re going to want to have a good glass floormat laying down on your carpet or hardwood floor. Otherwise, you most likely will scratch the heck out of your floor, or ruin the carpet where the chair slides back and forth. You’d think any old floormat would do, but the plain truth is, many of them crack or wrinkle up on the edges, just making them outright unsatisfactory. Here are 10 glass floor mats that will work when others don’t.

10. Kuyal Office Chair Mats

Kuyal Office Chair Mats

The Kuyal Office Chair Mat is a great choice for protecting your floors. Made of PVC plastic they are tough and won’t crack. The mats have a strong, studded grip to keep them in place, and they are Eco-friendly. No toxic gasses escape from them to make you sick. They are also super easy to clean. Drop a coke on yourself and it spills to the ground? No problem. With a simple sponge and water, it’s as good as new.

Features:

  • Reasonably priced
  • At $39.99 you can’t go wrong
  • Seem to last
  • A little small
  • At 30 x 48 we find the mats a little small. Perfect for a call center perhaps, but bad for an office that encourages inter-desk collaboration.
  • The devil to roll unroll
  • They come rolled up and it practically takes two sumo wrestlers to unroll them and get them to initially lay flat.

9. Floortex Chair Mat for Low/Medium Pile Carpets


Made of polycarbonate, a very strong material, you can just see the quality in these floormats. These floormats are virtually transparent, so you can still see the carpeting underneath and the wheels will not sink into the material, which lies virtually flat, and is crack-proof, and won’t yellow with age.

Features:

  • The recycled polycarbonate is very strong
  • These floormates will lay flat the first time and every time.
  • These floormates are very popular as they are larger than many
  • Somewhat pricey

8. Polycarbonate Office Chair Mat for Hardwood Floors


Designed for hardwood floors only, these polycarbonates floor mats are crystal clear so the beauty of your hardwood floors shines through, yet are protected. They are never rolled and stay flat and straight right out of the box. They are also a decent size, so you don’t feel cramped, and they are odor and toxin-free.

Features:

  • Very strong and durable
  • Always stay flat
  • Never crack or yellow
  • Decently priced
  • This model can only be used with hardwood floors

7. Floortex Chair Mat for Low/Medium Pile Carpets up to 1/2

Floortex Cleartex UltiMat Polycarbonate Chair Mat for Low/Medium Pile Carpets up to 1/2

This is a decent-sized polycarbonate floor mat designed for use with carpet. It has all the standard qualities of a good floormat: Decent Size. Made of polycarbonate that stays straight. No toxins or odors
Easy to clean. Our only problem is that some customers, albeit customers that purchased several years ago, claimed to experience cracking.

Features:

  • Decent price
  • A little larger – 48 x 53
  • Some evidence of cracking with customers

6. Floortex Glaciermat, Reinforced Glass Executive Chair Mat

Floortex Glaciermat, Reinforced Glass Executive Chair Mat

Call us elite snobs if you wish, but we much prefer reinforced glass over PVC or polycarbonate. The rolling action is so much smoother than either, and they are strong. Rated at 1,000 pounds, unless you hire gorillas to work in the office, these will never crack or break under stress. And the best thing is these glass mats work equally well on both carpet or wood floors.

Features:

  • Decent price
  • Multiple Sizes
  • You can get two sizes, 36 x 48 and 40 x 53, and buy in a 6-pack.
  • Very smooth rolling
  • Nearly indestructible
  • Expensive. You probably only want to buy for execs or home office

5. Deflecto Premium Clear Glass Chairmat, Multi-Surface Use

Deflecto Premium Clear Glass Chairmat, Multi-Surface Use

We also like the Deflecto for the same reason we like the previously mentioned glass mat, they are strong, easy to roll, and can be used on multiple surfaces. What sets this one apart is that it comes in 3 sizes, 36x 46, 44 x 50, and 48×60, so you can always get the right size for your needs. Just be sure to have rubber rollers at the bottom of your chair so you don’t slide off the mat.

Features:

  • Very smooth rolling
  • Nearly indestructible
  • Can be used on both carpet and hardwood
  • Somewhat expensive. You probably only want to buy for execs or home office

4. Office Chair Mat for Carpeted Floors

Office Chair Mat for Carpeted Floors

A PVC mat for carpeted floors, the only thing unique about this style of mat is that it comes in three different sizes, 30x 48, 36 x 48, and 48x.

Features:

  • Decent price
  • Multiple Sizes
  • You can get two sizes to fit your needs
  • Comes rolled
  • Made of PVC, which is not super durable
  • Doesn’t work particularly well on deep carpet

3. AmazonBasics Polycarbonate Heavy Duty Chair Mat for Carpets & Hard Floors

AmazonBasics Polycarbonate Heavy Duty Chair Mat for Carpets & Hard Floors

A polycarbonate floor mat that will work on both hardwood and carpeted floors. Never the less, we wonder why they are so expensive, at around $110. True, they do come in multiple sizes and work for any kind of floor, but you might be better off buying a mat designed for your specific type of floor and save $50.

Features:

  • Works for all kinds of floors
  • Multiple Sizes
  • You can get two sizes to fit your needs
  • They tend to slip
  • You may have to reposition them frequently. There are multiple complaints about this issue.
  • Seem to hold up well on carpeting and avoids dents and dimples
  • Relatively expensive

2. Crystal Clear 1/5″ Heavy Duty Hard Chair Mat

Crystal Clear 1/5

Another glass floor mat that comes in two sizes, 30 x 47 and 35 x 47, these mats are super strong and can be used for both hardwood and carpeted floors.

Features:

  • Works for all kinds of floors
  • Multiple sizes
  • A great bargain for a glass-like mat at this price poiny.
  • We’d like to see larger sized mats offered

1. Dimex 46″x 60″ Clear Rectangle Office Chair Mat For Low Pile Carpet

Dimex 46

A PVC mat protector, it is designed for low carpet piles only. It’s decent, but not spectacular. We prefer glass.

Features:

  • Decent price
  • Multiple sizes
  • People say it leaves depressions in their carpet
  • Evidence of cracking
  • Rolling action is not smooth
