Once again, the 479 Cushion Trax ® has been rated Bfl-S1 according to the European Standards EN-13501-1 as tested by TUV Laboratories.
To obtain a fire rating, products are tested for fire behavior in independent laboratories for flammability and reaction to fire. The first letter B (fl) indicates fire behavior and S1, meaning smoke, indicates a small amount of smoke. The product is re-tested every five years to extend certification.

Employee feedback was also used to support the study, using observations of workers comparing working on anti-fatigue mats to working on a hard floor and recording their comfort and fatigue levels every hour during eight-hour shifts.
One employee commented on using the ergonomic cushion trax anti-fatigue mat: "Less leg fatigue at the end of the day and less muscle and joint problems, better weight absorption."
