Clear Car Mats
March 1, 2006
Car mats are a part of car furnishings that are used to protect the carpet flooring from getting dirty. Slush, mud and dirt can spoil the floor interior of your car to a point of no return – even if it’s serviced inside out. Car mats are an easy way to protect your car, as they are removable and can be cleaned easily.
Materials such as leather, sheepskin, aluminum and polyester have long been used to make car mats; other materials such as vinyl are gaining a steady popularity though. Individuals who do not wish to cover the beautiful carpet coloring in the car usually chose to get the car fitted with transparent car mats.
Vinyl car mats allow the carpet coloring to be visible unless the mat is extremely dirty. Clear car mats are fitted with anti-skid nibs at the back to ensure that the car mat does not skid during travel.
Although clear car mats come in a thinner form compared to those made of other materials, they are just as durable. Also, they are wrinkle-free and fit perfectly into the car to avoid displacement of the mat. A rinse of water can make the clear car mat look good as new. They are easy to clean and maintain.
Even with the clear color and smooth texture, the top is not slippery due to the anti-slip technology used. These can be used in both the front and back of the car to ensure the carpet flooring is neat and does not need frequent cleaning.
One important thing to consider while choosing a clear car mat is the price. These vinyl mats come in the same price bracket as custom-designed and fitted car mats. Because they are durable and long wearing, these are comparatively costlier than the regular rubberized car mats. Also, the vinyl mats are a little less durable compared to the heavy-duty rubber car mats. However, maintenance of vinyl mats is just as easy as that of rubberized ones, and the stylish look of vinyl is infinitely superior.
If an individual can afford it, a clear vinyl car mat would be the best option to bring out the best in the car, as they are practical, well-designed and to bring out the existing beauty of your car.
