I bought this floor mat for my carpeted home office and it is perfect. It stays in place, and is made of a strong material that does not dent or change with usage. It looks good, lays flat, and cleans easily.
One caution: It came wrapped in a roll, with a belt keeping it under control. When I cut the belt, it EXPOLODED open. The material is rigid enough to hurt someone who is standing in its path. So be careful, there's a lot of tension in that box.
this mat has a great thickness and does not deflect under the weight of an occupied office chair. its grip is very good, but you can expect it to walk unless you fence it with the side supports of a desk or take other measures to hold it in place. that is the way with chair mats, it seems.
The size is just enough for a normal desk . If you have a larger space you will want a larger mat. The plastic is hard, not soft and floppy. We are using on low pile (business) carpet and are optimistic this mat will hold up well.
Bought this chair mat to sit on a fairly plush carpet... Some of the cheaper products seemed razor thin and i could imagine them cracking the first time i rolled my desk chair. Excellent quality here... spikes that grip the carpet, sturdy enough to sink into the carpet without cracking... and nice and large at 4x4 feet. RECOMMENDED.
This mat is wonderful. Besides looking slick it meets my needs completely. I work from home and have my work computer about 6 feet from my personal pc. I had been using two smaller mats but had to contend with the 'bump' between them because they constantly moved. This mat allows me to slide from one computer to the other with a push of my foot. I love it. I don't know if it would move under my wood floor because I have one part secure under a file cabinet. But d/t the length I don't think it would be a problem.
Polycarbonate chairmats are more expensive, but they're worth it. Vinyl chairmats dry, crack, split, develop holes within a year, esp. on plush carpets. Be careful, though, to match your carpet to a chairmat's specs: if carpet is plush/medium/low-pile, buy accordingly. In any case, buy polycarbonate. Vinyl is a throwaway, so often you'd have to buy several at a time.
Overstock.com delivers fast and accurately (I previously ordered this exact same chairmat from another online company, and had to send it back, wrong model).
Simply outstanding. No smell and perfectly flat when taken out of box. Mat is rolled up in box but lays flat with no curl when put on floor. Put the smooth side on a hard wood floor and it does not move. Very strong and very thin. Perfect transition from floor to mat on corners because it is so thin. I have had the horrible vinyl for years with the curing and cracking. Will never get any other mat unless it is polycarbonate from now on. Not sure how it would work on carpet but on hard wood or vinyl floor it is perfect. Extremely happy. It does not move at all on hard wood floor with smooth side down. It has a anti skid coating on the smooth side.Plastic came flawless with no cosmetic issues.Overstock also had great price.
I was pleased that my order was delivered much quicker than anticipated. The chair mat appears to be durable, and my chair rolls across it very smoothly. It is too early to give a 5 star rating as I have only had the mat for a short time, but I am very happy with my decision to purchase this chair mat.
The floortex polycarbonate chair mat shipped immediately after my order. This is my 2nd purchase of this particular mat in several years, and the mat does a terrific job of staying in place and no wear.
This is a great floor mat to put over carpeting. I was always struggling when I had to move my office chair, until I purchased and placed this mat underneath it. What a major difference. The mat doesn't move, but the chair moves easily. I'm so happy with this purchase.
Love this! I liked it so much I bought 2! It looks great in my office on the carpet. So much better than the plain ones with the teeth. Have been using it now for over 6 months and no divots from my chair wheels or getting stuck in the depressions from sitting in the same place for too long (my carpet is thick and medium deep). I still can roll around really easy. If you are looking for a stylish way to keep from getting stuck in the carpet while you work this is IT! (and its a great price, too!)
I bought this mat with the new chair I got, expecting it to be the normal floor mat, but boy was I surprised, It was purchased to go over a wood parquet oak floor that was starting to dent and splinter from rolling office chairs years of use.
I tell you, my chairs roll over it like a breeze, and no more dents or splinters in the floor, it really is the exceptional mat for a wood floor, and there is not pokey things on the floor either, it is just smooth, I would buy it again in a heartbeat.
I purchased 2 different sizes for my desk area and my husband's office. Both came packaged flat so there was no concern about edges lying flat. Very nice quality, worth the little extra money. As always, thank-you overstock. Anna W.
