When the 4 x 10 mat arrived, we opened it up and put it in the workout room; then left for a while. When we came home, the whole house stunk of rubber. We put the mat outside for a week; but unfortunately the smell did not get any better. The mat is also harder then I would have thought. Tried to return it, but the cost to ship it was $70+. Might try to sell on Craigslist. Sorry to say the purchase did not work out and was a big disappointment.
I purchased this mat to use as a non-slip surface on a ramp for my pet pig. It could not be a more perfect. I have tried numerous other rugs, mats, etc. and they all failed or ripped under his hooves. The tough mat was easy enough to cut to the right size and provides the perfect surface. He is so sure-footed on the ramp now, I cannot keep him off of it. Before this, he had to be coaxed with treats to use it. Now I have to coax him with treats to get him off of it.
I have been scouring the Internet for years looking for a decent tough rubber material to use on workbench tops - can't believe that nobody sells a high-quality material pre-cut for that purpose. They installed this for flooring at my Gym, so I figured if it could stand up to that torture it could certainly protect my nice butcher-block workbenches from some hammer blows!
Easy to lay, edge to edge joint very smooth and clean with no adhesive or tape, slight curl in the ends lays flat after a few days. The pieces are not exactly the same length, and not cut exactly square. So you will have some trimming if you are butting pieces end to end.
Looks and feels very good. I saw the same material used in high traffic area at Taos Ski Valley, tramped on by ski boots, with no sign of wear.
You need a softer mat on top to do crunches and the like!
Super-helpful rep handled my order! Mat was recevied on-time and was well-packaged. Price was good and the mat has worked out perfectly for the use I bought it (exercise equipment).
Purchased this rubber flooring to try and match existing rubber flooring. The color I selected was not an exact match, but still looks nice. The product arrived in a reasonable amount of time and was very easy to install. It makes a huge difference from bare concrete!
love it. works great, quality product.
The carpet on the floor of my boat was bad. I covered it with this matting. it looks great! It is also easier to clean than the old carpet!
I bought this mat for my rabbit's habitat. I needed something that provided cushion, but that was also sturdy enough that he couldn't dig or chew through. I was able to (with a leather punching tool) poke small holes along the perimeter so I could zip tie his cage to the mat. It is easy to clean and wipe up and he can't destroy it. I have gone through several different types of flooring in his habitat, and though this is the most expensive single purchase, it has saved me money in the long run because I can tell I won't need to replace it for a long while. I wish I would have just started with this in the first place!
I needed a rubber floor to go over the 7.5R structural foam I placed between the ribs on my 16' Jon boat. I wanted to keep the floor light but have it be non-slip and comfortable to stand on for the many hours of casting I do for pike on the rivers here in North West Montana. It also needed to be sturdy enough that it would make the floor be smooth across the top of the ribs and structural foam and I didn't want to have to drill any holes in the boat to secure it down. This 4' x 10' x 1/4" mat worked perfectly. It absorbs vibrations from the engine and when I walk, it lays perfectly flat once I cut it into place. It is a dream to stand on vs aluminum or wood flooring in a boat and doesn't get slippery under my shoes even when there is water on it. Delivery was fast and cutting it to fit the contours of the boat with a sharp utility knife was super easy. I am 100% pleased with everything about this purchase.
Used this for flooring in my flat bottom fishin boat and it works out perfect. Light weight, and easy to hose off and keep clean.
Love it perfect for my home gym
I am happy with the mat I purchased to cover the floor of my 30 yo VW bus. As an architect, I had used similar products and found them to be amazingly durable, good-looking and affordable. It's a perfect surface for my needs - with time at the beach and an active dog. My only disappointment was the unexpected lag in shipping time - it took three weeks to receive my order. Granted this was over the holidays, but the website indicated that the order would be shipped in "2 to 7 days" and that they were closed only Christmas and New Years.
I bought the mat to put under my washing machine because my laundry room is on the second floor and the whole house vibrated when the washing machine was on. Works like a charm. I can barely feel it now when is on!
This particular product, "Elephant Bark" style rubber matting is exactly what I was hoping it would be for my flooring project. We used it to create a replacement driver area floor covering in a vintage vehicle. The color choices worked well with the vintage theme and the mat itself lays well, conforming to the basic angles in the floor without the need for additional fastening. The material itself has a high friction coefficient naturally, so it does not slide around once in place. Noise and heat levels were reduced immediately upon installation. Very satisfied with the product and service from the company.
I will start with saying overall we are pleased with the mats for the price. We converted a room in our home to a gym and after removing the carpet these work great to have a better surface for working out.
There are only 2 complaints: The mats were not the exact specified length which meant we had to cut length off and the ends were not completely straight in the cut so both ends had to be cut to some extent. The other complaint is that we ordered the mats on 2 different occasions and the mats are off in thickness by fractions but you can tell a difference if you step in the right spot.
For our home gym it's working well, but I would advise making sure you buy all you need in one purchase if you are filling in a complete area and be sure to have a proper tool to cut it down and even out the edges. I would purchase again and would suggest it to anyone who wants something more durable than carpet or bare floors.
Worked out great.
Great product, just wish the 4 I purchased were all the same length.. as now I have to cut 3 of them . Otherwise very happy with product.
I put four red specked mats down side by side on a concrete floor. The long edges are all straight and they fit together perfectly. As pointed out by others, the end edges were more random. two of the rolls were a little longer than the others, but were all 10' or longer. I cut a couple of the mats accommodate existing fixtures (this was easy to do). I did not use tape for the installation and haven't had any issues with the mats moving. The space they went into is open, but I noticed very little rubber odor.
There were no surprises. They look great and work great. The FREE shipping was key to me making the purchase.
