That foam matting is pretty rubbish for anything other than hot fiat is using it for or perhaps a gym room
I used it in part of my garage but even a bike workstand loaded with a bike cuts through it in a couple of weeks plus it gets really dirty and you can’t clean it, and any solvents just eat it away
There is a reason its cheapPosted 4 years ago
granny_ring – yeah it’t the costco stuff.
Am having 2nd thoughts about it today though.
I’ve bought 4 packs as I will have some racking and benches that won’t be able to go on it and I figured when I bring in other heavy kit I can lift up the odd tile as they just interlock but I am wondering if it is too squishy and is going to be too fragile. Possibly okay as a strip infront of my work bench but wondering if I should have gone for something tougher like you put in cow sheds or even just some lino.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve got rough sawn timber planks on the floor I need to cover so it’s easier to clean and so no small parts get lost.
BigDug has some much tougher interlocking flooring that can be used under a car, trolley jack etc which is £4.45 per 0.5×0.5m tile which is pretty good but still more than some cheap vinyl which I suspect will be easier to clean.
The benefit of the foam was it would even out any ridges in the floor better than a thin vinyl or rigid tiles.Posted 4 years ago
