I received the mats in good order. I then placed them in a spare bedroom that we made into a gym. The odor that these mats emit was overwhelming. I had hoped the odor would dissipate over time and much to my disappointment the odor does not go away. Consequently the mats have been removed from the room and are now stored in my garage.
I wanted flooring to cover the aerobic area in my home gym. These two combined, giving me an 8 X 12 working area fit perfectly. Yes there is a smell, yes it'll take a while to completely go away but, it is RUBBER right? Now we can run and jump and bounce all we want without undo jarring to our limbs. And, the golden flecks go perfectly with my carpet in there. Totally satisfied.
Using a recommendation from your company, I connected four of the 4x6 Premium Mats to have a 8x12 area. My location is in an enclosed garage with a concrete floor. Not having to work out on bare concrete has helped ease the stress on my knees. After my exercise session, the car is brought in with no impact to the mat.
Great product and great service!
It has this residue on the undersurface that will quickly stain your carpet permanently if you make the mistake of opening it over carpet. I had to take the mat outside and thoroughly clean it several times with a power wash to eliminate most of it and greatly reduce the rubber tire smell.
I ordered these mats for my son’s bedroom. He has horrible dust mite allergies and we cannot have carpet in his room. We installed it ourselves in a day and now Dean’s room is the envy of all his friends.
First the good... Simple install, feels great under the feet, extremely attractive and cleans very easily. Now the bad... the odor is so pungent that it is not unlike being in a room with a smoker. In other words, these will have you and your clothing reeking of rubber to the extent that you will have to take a shower EVEN IF YOU DID NOTHING BUT SPEND 5 MINUTES IN THE ROOM WITH THESE MATS. Having said that, I did just receive them and perhaps the smell will die down over time. I really hope so because I cannot imagine having to deal with this stench, which cannot possibly be healthy, over the winter when the windows need to be kept down because of the cold weather. If I had known about this prior to ordering, I absolutely would have gone with something else.
I just installed a new tile floor and dartboard. I didn't want ″missed″ darts to damage the floor, so I needed a rubber mat. Prior to ordering I ″chatted″ with customer service and they steered me towards this mat. I couldn't be happier! The Earth tone matches the decor, and the mat is impenetrable by the darts. It really didn't have any odor, but just to be safe, I opened it up and put it outside for a day. The size was to spec and the delivery time was as promised. Be sure to have someone help you install it. It's really heavy (which is GOOD!)and awkward to handle when trying to carry it alone. Try it - you'll like it!
Outstanding Mats. I ordered 4 for our new home gym, although the gym is carpeted we used the mats under equipment and it really looks good. The mats are heavy and so durable. Yes, they do have a strong rubber smell, but now about a month later most of the smell is gone. I highly recommend these mats.
I used these premium mats in the places that I would be setting weights down on the ground and soft rubber in the walkways and other areas for sit ups ect ... the products worked well together and I am happy with the project.
These mats are perfect for your home gym.
The rubber mats are just as described, were shipped quickly and have been installed in a new wellness center location under the free weights.
My customer was pleased with the quality of the mats.
Great customer service & experience. Product is strong.
We originally ordered mats with grey inserts. We were notified of late shipment (a month) due to high demand. We called in to customer service. They were one of the best to deal with. Sales and support are two different teams. They are really knowledgeable about the products and sounded honest! We changed the color to blue and received the mats in a week. Whole process was very smooth. Mats came flat and stacked up on a 4X6 pallet. Were really happy to see flat mats as we did not have deal with corners rolling up. However, the pallet itself was made out of iron instead of wood. Even delivery guy was surprised. This caused some headache as trash people would not pick it up. I had to take it to dump site somewhere far. Mats were perfectly cut. Mats have strong smell to them. I suggest placing them individually outside on a driveway or backyard for couple of weeks before installation. Mats are very tough looking and heavy. We installed them in the garage. After airing the garage for two weeks, smell reduced greatly. We also wiped the floor with vinegar water. That might have helped a little. Overall, if you are looking for a tough product for your workout space, I recommend premium mats.
I ordered two mats as a temporary workout space in our unfinished basement (just until my dream workout room is completed!) The concrete floors were killing me on jumps (I do a lot of HIIT training). These mats are incredibly sturdy. We unrolled them and they laid flat immediately. We placed them together on the floor and they've not moved an inch since they are so heavy and sturdy. I've had them about a month and done lots of workouts/weights on them. They seem extremely durable. I plan to order rolls of this flooring to do our workout room when it is ready. The customer service is superb. I did a live chat for some advice on flooring and they were very informative and helpful. The shipping was also extremely quick. I believe the mats arrived in 2-3 business days from order date. I will absolutely order in the future and would recommend this product to friends.
The mats are heavy and high quality.
Excellent product! Protects my new floor in our basement gym AND looks pretty classy as far as gym floor mats go. Definitely purchasing more for total gym floor coverage!
Well made, high quality material. Exactly what you want for a gym floor. There is a slight rubber odor, but not overwhelming. This is NOT a soft padded mat.
I used 2 of these in my home gym (cement floor) and they sit under my weight bench and rack. They are cut well, and fit together nicely. It will take a while for the rubber smell to dissipate, but that’s to be expected. Overall, with free shipping these mats are the best bang for my buck. Thanks to Trump’s tax cuts, we all can all afford nice mats now!! :-)
