Carpet mat ad misleading

Filed under: Chair Mats, Chairmats, Door Mats, Floor Mats, Floor Protection, Floormats, Mats, Uncategorized 
A carpet mat company has run into problems with the Advertising Standards Authority with a television advertisement for its mats.
Floor Mat advert found to be misleading by ASAThe ad compared walking on a normal floor mat, which left a muddy footprint on the floor, with walking on the Magic Carpet, which left no such print behind.
A viewer who had bought the product challenged whether the ad was misleading because he found that the mat did not reduce footprints to the extent shown.

The water was mixed with mud to make the contrast clearer to viewers, but that did not suggest that the mat would retain more mud than a conventional doormat.

However, the ASA decided the ad gave the impression that the Magic Carpet would remove all mud and dirt from shoes, but noted that its ability to soak up mud and dirt had not been tested.

The voice-over claim, “What a mess! Muddy foot and paw prints trampled all through the house. What you need is the Magic Carpet”, reinforced the impression that the mat would soak up mud.

JML was told that the ad must not be broadcast again in its current form.

Choosing your chair mat

HOW TO PICK THE RIGHT MAT FOR YOUR NEEDS
Floortex mats are highly cost-effective solutions for the protection of expensive floor coverings such as carpets, real wood and laminated floors. They will save floors from loss of appearance, wear and damage. Floortex offers a wide selection of shapes and sizes to suit your requirements.

Our mats have an embossed upper surface and are usually clear (unless stated) so that the appearance of the underlying floor covering remains visible.

BEFORE WE START …
A quick look at the typical home or office below shows the many potential applications of Floortex products, each one perfectly preserving the condition of the surface it covers.

Floortex Applications


FIRST, CHECK YOUR SURFACE
You will need either gripper backed mats for carpet or smooth back mats for hard floor and very low pile carpets-

PICK THE RIGHT BACKING …
Gripper backed Mats GRIPPER BACKED MATS
Use these spiked mats on carpets only. Spiked mats will damage wooden floors and will be damaged by castor chairs if used on hard floors.
Smooth backed mats SMOOTH BACKED MATS
For use on hard floors and very low pile carpets.
Anti slip mats ANTI SLIP BACKING
Use on high-gloss floors, eg polished wood, to prevent slippage. Floortex has launched a new range of polycarbonate anti-slip mats in our Cleartex brand category
… FOR THE RIGHT FLOORING
LOW PILE CARPET
Less than 6mm pile.
STANDARD PILE CARPET
Less than 9mm pile.
MEDIUM PILE CARPET
Less than 12mm pile.
DEEP PILE CARPET
More than 12mm pile.
HARD FLOOR
Concrete, tile, wood, laminate, vinyl, carpet tiles etc.

THEN PICK A SHAPE
There’s a huge range to suit any space, from the basic to the aesthetic…

Rectangular RECTANGULAR
For use with modern desks and workstations and many other applications in the home and office.
With Lip RECTANGULAR WITH LIP
For use with double ped desks.
Square SQUARE
For use with modern desks and workstations and many other applications in the home and office.
Contoured
CONTOURED
For use with modern desks and workstations.
Triangular
TRIANGULAR
For use in modern offices and corner workstations.
Round
ROUND
For general office, commercial and home applications..
half Moon
HALF MOON
For general office, commercial and home applications.

THIRDLY, MEASURE UP
Our mats come in a range of sizes. Combine the right size with the right shape and there’s always a solution to fit.


STEP FOUR – CHOOSE A SUITABLE MATERIAL
Floortex manufacture mats in durable, clear polycarbonate and cost-effective PVC. For more information about the materials we use please click here.

ORIGINAL FLOORTEX POLYCARBONATE
Durable, clear, odourless – this material is used in the manufacture of bullet-proof glass and will give longlife protection for your flooring. Original Floortex Polycarbonate is used to produce the Ultimat range.
PVC
The new Floortex formulation for PVC means that our vinyl mats are now clearer than ever. They share the same design, structure and finish as our polycarbonate range and is used in the production of our Valuemat and Advantagemant ranges.

STEP FIVE – CHOOSE HOW YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR MATS PACKAGED
We can package your mat(s) in cartons, polybags or bulk depending on your individual requirements … eg if you are an end user ordering from our retail site you will probably want a single mat shipped in a cardboard carton. If you are a wholesaler or dealer then a bulk packed pallet will be more appropriate.
