Many people purchase desk mats for the workplace as a ‘snazzy’ looking accompaniment to their rather sophisticated desk. Management and higher management personal like to ‘mark’ their success and their years of effort by rewarding themselves with expensive and quite lavish desks when they reach management level; having made their purchase they tend to want to look after it! A desk mat will protect your desk from scratches and scrapes and from impressions when writing or drawing. However they are also used to provide a comfortable surface on which to write with ease or to move your mouse. A desk mat prevents that ‘scratchy’ feel when writing as it provides padding which all leads to a more comfortable writing experience and frankly neater handwriting!
You’ll find a large selection available here at Office 365 with features such as work pads, indexes, anti-glare covers, non-slip backing, calendars and even USB hubs; my how the desk mat has evolved!

DURABLE products are particularly eco-friendly thanks to their durability. The plastic materials they use are robust, have excellent recycling properties and can be disposed of together with normal refuse with no problem at all.
In accordance with its guiding principles, Durable continuously aim to further optimise their ecology-oriented management. Their aim is to develop products that are largely recyclable (of course they should also be produced at low cost and yield a reasonable profit!). To meet this ideal as closely as possible, Durable continuously carry out critical analyses of the environmental impact of their products and production processes. Thus the material thicknesses of their products and above all, their packaging are constantly reviewed for possible enhancements. Through packaging modifications developed in-house, Durable have been able to achieve significant material savings and reductions in volume. Durable also demonstrate their responsibility towards the environment through their purchasing policies. Important decisions in favour of ecologically sustainable production are being made in regular project meetings between their purchasing department and suppliers. Careful selection of optimal materials is one way to protect the environment. The right choice of suppliers is also as important to Durable. They never fail to check whether the manufacturers and their suppliers are certified, and how they are being regulated. These questions must always be answered before they decide on any purchase.
