So I'm not sure who's writing these reviews but I don't recommend this product at all. Its cheap, super cheap in fact, it came with damage to a lot of the actual mats and there are way too few end pieces to round off the set. I really wanted these to be nice but they are not. So don't get caught up in the reviews because who knows who posted all of those. Not worth the investment here!
Did the product fit true to size? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Poor
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No
I agree with other postings that this has too many corner pieces and not enough straight ones for the edging. It doesn't really matter unless you have to have it looking "perfect." It does smell a bit. It's in my garage and I unpacked and put together yesterday. By this morning, the smell was already better and I was working out in a closed garage. It does slip a tiny bit but it was only when one foot was off the mat and one foot was on and I was doing plyometrics. I may put some rubber carpet pad underneath. It has helped complete my gym makeover for my garage and I think it is a great product for the price. I purchased the 96 pack and may purchase more to expand my area and have extras in case of damage. I would definitely buy this again!
How accurate was the sizing? Very Accurate

I bought these mats to cover my hardwood floors while my baby was crawling and learning how to walk. They smell so much that I just left them in the open box to air out for a few weeks. That didn't do the trick though. I had to wipe them all down with soap and water since my baby would be all over them and that did get rid of the smell. These mats do not take their shape back after something has made a dent or mark in them. The alphabet playmat that I have takes back their shape, so I guess the material of these mats aren't as good in quality.
If you are looking for basic inexpensive floor mat tiles these will probably work. They do not come with enough edge pieces so you will not have a finished look. I bought enough to make an 8 x 10 area and had 16 corner pieces and only enough edges for one side.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality seems good.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? A couple of pieces were not correctly formed.
The tiles are nice and thick and very easy to wipe down. The surface is slightly slippery which I did not expect. There are not enough boarders to go around the entire surface and some boarders are larger than the squares allow, so if you need wall to wall you will have to do some cutting even if the sizing is correct.

We have a finished basement and have had it flood 3 times through 3 different leaks with up to an inch of water. So after tearing out subfloor the first two times, we decided to pursue an alternate route. We purchased these interlocking tiles for 2 rooms in our basement. In one room, we used these under wall to wall carpet in place of padding. Since these are waterproof, if our basement floods again, all we have to do is roll up the carpet and pick up the tiles, clean them and carpet, and put it all back down. No padding to replace. The cushioning and height of these tiles is fairly equivalent to what we had with the carpet padding so it works well for us. We did not tack the carpet down since it has already been installed and stretched previously it was already laying flat. It just tucked under the baseboards and looks professionally installed.
The other room we used these in is our home gym. In that room, we had very large rolls of 1/4in rubber gym floor installed with a subfloor underneath. After tearing out the subfloor, we put these tiles again directly on the concrete since they are waterproof, then put our gym floor back on top. The cushioning in our gym is even better than before. These tiles as subfloor/carpet padding are a great alternative in basements. I wish we would have done this sooner.
To address other reviewers comments, we noticed no smell with these and they are easy and fast to install. Since we put flooring on top of them, we did not care about having nice clean edges. All we did was install the flooring on to bleached and sanitized concrete, then mopped the the tiles, and put our nice flooring on top. If you were to use this as a stand-alone product in a gym, I can see these being problematic with possibly wanting to pull apart during plyometric moves.
Overall, we are very pleased with the purchase for our use.
I am using it on my garage floor...the write up said this was feasible. It is OK, but should not be used for parking a car on, the mats will separate. Thankfully, we always have a rug down in the garage, so the car is still on the rug on the mat and does not separate that way. I did the whole garage, and everywhere else it is great. It looks nice, feels nice to walk on and is easy to clean...just mop. Easy to put together, easy to cut it to piece, and you get plenty of end pieces...I did my garage in a few hrs. Overall...good product.
Installed in a gym and is supporting a heavy weight set and treadmill. Great for assembling furniture on to avoid floor damage and will drag across hardwood floor smootly to avoid damage. Great multi purpose flooring, is really surprisingly strong! Would recommend for a gym or garage, just great all around flooring.....
These mats work well. They're easy to install. I agree with everybody else that they could use more side pieces and less corner pieces.
One word of caution, they are pretty slippery, so I wouldn't recommend them for power cleans or any type of exercise where there is a lot of movement such as aerobics.

I was expecting flooring a little less squishy. It got crushed under the treadmill. Also it only came with a few edge pieces so if I want the floor to look finished I have to order more edges. It came together very easily and looks very nice, but shows dirt VERY easily. For the price it is very good though.

Twice people asked how many square feet this comes with, and it was never clearly answered. One said 96 square feet which would mean a case contains 96 12peanut198510 on Sep 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

How do we install the mats? We want to put them over carpet with pad under the carpet. Will the interlock come loose because of the give of the carpet?jbickmore on Dec 3, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The mats just interlock on the floor. The higher your carpet pile, the more likely the interlock will come apart.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 3, 2012
