Q&A: A Look at Hog Heaven Mats w/Mike Andersen of The Andersen Company

We recently asked Mike Andersen of The Andersen Company to tell us about his company's high-performance mat products. Here's a quick Q&A with Mike about Andersen's popular Hog Heaven series of mats.

Q Source: Hi Mike. We're excited to have the Andersen Company line on QSource.com. Can you tell our readers a little about your company?
Mike Andersen: Hi. Sure. The Andersen Company has a 40-year history of bringing innovative products to the market that solve problems and provide years of service. We have more than 70 products and a number of popular lines such as Waterhog, Comfort Flow, Cushion Max, Happy Feet, and the line we're looking at today, Hog Heaven.

Q Source: Okay, great. Please tell us about your line of Hog Heaven Mats.
Mike Andersen: American made Hog Heaven anti-fatigue mats, like all of our products, were created to address a particular issue. Studies have shown that standing on a hard surface for hours at a time lowers worker productivity and comfort. Hog Heaven mats solve this problem.

Q Source: How do Hog Heaven mats address this problem? What makes them different from other mats?
Mike Andersen: These mats are made with a 100% nitrile rubber top and a closed-cell nitrile/PVC-blended cushion, which sets them apart from other anti-fatigue mats. Nitrile rubber is grease- and oil-proof and will not crack, curl, or break like other PVC products often do. In addition, the foam cushion is molded, not glued, to the rubber top, which eliminates the possibility of delamination.

Q Source: For what applications are these mats recommended?
Mike Andersen: Hog Heaven mats are electrically conductive, welding proof, and certified slip-resistant by the National Floor Safety Institute. These properties make the Hog Heaven line very versatile and perfect for assembly, warehouse, workstation, and industrial applications to name a few.

Q Source: Are they available in different styles?
Mike Andersen: They're available with beveled borders that provide safe transitions. Yellow-, red-, orange-, and green-striped borders are also available, as well as the black borders.

Q Source: What available sizes do you offer?
Mike Andersen: Hog Heaven is available in two thicknesses: 5/8" and 7/8". So you can choose your thickness depending on the level of comfort desired. Sizes include 33", 46", and 58" widths, and lengths up to 60' in one-foot increments.

Q Source: Thanks for the helpful information about Andersen's Hog Heaven mats. We're sure it will help our customers make an informed purchase when selecting the mats they need. Is there anything else you'd like to say about Hog Heaven?
Mike Andersen: Yes, thank you. If you need a benefit-loaded anti-fatigue mat that will last for years, Hog Heaven is the right choice for you.
