axminster had this matting on offer some months ago at half price
http://www.axminster.co.uk/axminster-an ... t-4-100222
done an internet search as you do and ordered this matting
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/112150390269
i ordered 144sq foot or 36 matts for £50
now the matting looks the same so suspect similar so even iff you select the 18matt selection at £27 as near the same price you get 18 for the price off 4 or £1.50 per matt as opposed to £6.60 or indeed £1.39 nearing 5 times the price how can they justify that :scratch:

Just a thought on this - in counry aeas you can often get compressed recycled foam or rubber "cow matresses" (actually floor covering) which work well as resillient, grippy floor covering. Generally fairly cheap, too

Hmmm - the Axminster stuff says 'rubberised' but the eBay one says 'foam'

I suspect there's a significant difference in lifespan/robustness if this is the case.

to be anti fatique they must have a fair bit off "GIVE "
the ones i have are quite firm so expect a similar spec
they are waterproof and wipe clean
