What Way Do the Ribs Run on BLT Ribbed Garage Mats?
The ribs on a G-Floor garage floor mat always run the length of the mat. This is true on garage floor mats but is not true for motorcycle mats and kennel liners. The reason for this is the ribs are designed to help channel water and debris.

When you consider the purpose of the ribs and the ability to clean the product, the directionality of the ribs becomes common sense.Â When you pull a vehicle into the garage, water and debris fall off the vehicle.
The water is contained by the ribs and channeled towards the garage door. It is easily removed using a push broom or squeegee.Â If the ribs were to run left to right, they would channel moisture into the sidewalls and that would create an issue.
The direction of the seams is just as important as the direction of the ribs. With all of our garage floor mats, you always want the seams to run perpendicular to the garage door and never parallel to it. If you are unable to run the mats effectively this way, you either need to consider a custom order or a different type of garage flooring.
