Austin, TX (May 1, 2012) – GelPro®, the world’s leader in comfort flooring solutions, and Emeril Lagasse, an award-winning chef, restaurateur and television personality, today announced the launch of Emeril™ Chef’s Mat by GelPro®, a novel line of anti-fatigue mats for use on hard floors found in the home kitchen. The Emeril™ Chef’s Mat joins GelPro’s extensive collection of floor mats designed for cooking enthusiasts looking for a more comfortable and enjoyable experience while standing on tough surfaces for long periods of time.

“Recognized for his culinary excellence and innovation in the kitchen, Emeril has become a household name through his popular television shows, original recipes and branded merchandise,” said Robb McMahan, Founder and CEO of GelPro. “Just as Emeril has grown his own brand into a trusted source of helpful kitchen products, GelPro has taken a similar approach to its development of reliable flooring solutions. Given these obvious parallels, Emeril is the perfect partner for our latest comfort mat.”

“I’ve used GelPro mats in my kitchen for a long time and am thrilled to have my own line of this incredible product,” said Emeril Lagasse. “GelPro’s design of this mat is in a league of its own. Speaking from experience of being on my feet in many kitchens all day, the comfort they provide is incomparable to anything else on the market.”

Ergonomically engineered with dual-density technology, the Emeril™ Chef’s Mat by GelPro® features a patented gel core over a base layer of supportive foam. Incorporating a combination of ¼ inch gel that conforms to the shape of your feet and ¼ inch premium foam for proper firmness, the Emeril™ Chef’s Mat by GelPro® absorbs shock and greatly reduces pressure on your feet and back while standing for long periods of time on hard surfaces.

The Emeril™ Chef’s Mat by GelPro is available in the popular Cordoba pattern, a high-end synthetic leather with an intricate variant of an interwoven basket weave pattern, which adds depth and texture to the kitchen floor. Mat sizes are 20’’x32’’ and 20’’x48’’, and colors include Truffle and Sable. Rich and alluring, Truffle infuses hints of red with a warm dark coffee brown, while Sable complements warm wood tones and light flooring with its medium brown color. The 20”x32” Emeril™ Chef’s Mat by GelPro® is priced at $79.95 and the 20”x48 mat is available for $119.95.

The Emeril Chef’s Mat by GelPro may be purchased at and the complete GelPro mat collection can be purchased directly at or by calling 1 (866) GEL MATS (435-6287).
