 Stanley Interlocking Utility Mats

The Stanley Interlocking Utility Mats are made of 100% high density polyurethane foam, this durable, tear-resistant material, and has top and bottom surfaces that provide traction to help prevent slipping.  These mats are designed to be customizable to your work environment.

The black colored mats are 0.6 in. thick, come in a 2-pack of 24 in. x 24 in. squares and have three configurations to work with:

  1. Interlocking edge      [one side beveled edge]
  2. Interlocking corner  [two-sides beveled edge]
  3. Interlocking center  [all interlocking sides]

These three configurations allow you to make any configuration in segments of 24-inches.  The mats can also be cut with a sharp utility knife to fit against a wall, machinery, outside corners, or work stations.

Each interlocking mat provides 4 sq. ft. of coverage.  We found that the pieces interlock together easily and and with no effort.   The mats lay flat and secure and did not slide around on the our concrete workshop floor, even when we tried to get them to slide.  This means that these mats would be very effective and safe at table saw and router stations where the user need to push material through a machine and relies on shore footing.

The mats feature an anti-skid bottom and diamond plate textured surface for traction to prevent injuries caused by slipping. Lab tests confirm common fluids and chemicals such as motor oil, grease, antifreeze, WD-40 and gasoline do not affect the mat’s integrity.

Using the Stanley Interlocking Utility Mats

We did not have a large enough sample to customize these mats to our shop,  so instead we constructed a 48-inch by 96-inch 8 floor mat and designated it our table-saw and router station.

We put our 4×8 ,at section together and in place in a matter of a few minutes, fast, easy and effective.   The mats cushioning are super comfortable and secure to stand on.   The diamond pattern gives you traction and completely eliminates the slip and fall hazard of saw dust.    We also noticed that the beveled edge allows for a seamless transition onto the mat and avoids trips hazards that must be avoided around moving machinery.

Lastly, we found the mats comfortable to work on and they do significantly reduce fatigue and stress from standing on a solid floor.  We found the interlocking mats comfortable to stand on, they are slightly harder than the “stand alone,  Stanley Utility Mats, that we  reviewed last year.

The big take away here is that these floor mats are customizable to your work environment.  That means that you can make your floor mats the size and shape that best suits your workspace.  You could even cover your whole shop.  Its completely up to you!


We were impressed with the Stanley Interlocking Utility Mats but you need to know that these mats do not move easily.  We feel that they are designed to be assembled and left in place, not moved around.  When we tried to slide them around the shop to different work stations the interlocking came apart – annoying!

Its clear that these mats are designed to customize to one spot and stay put if you must move them you may need to use a 3M tape on the bottom to keep the mat together or better yet, take a look closer at the “stand alone,” Stanley Utility Mats [link above].  The stand alone mats come in two sizes:

  • 24 ” x 36″ Foam rubber anti-fatigue mat
  • 36″ x 60″ Foam rubber anti-fatigue mat

Overall Impression:

We feel that these mats are a must at any workstation and the motto work smarter not harder applies here.
