We put new laminate flooring in my home office. I have a five caster roll around desk chair that was in need of a chair mat to protect the new flooring. After much research on the internet I decided to try this brand new product. The older version was famous for slipping on the laminates but this new version is a MUST for today's flooring. There is absolutely no mat slippage on the flooring and the textured surface that the chair rides on gives an excellent base for the casters with no slippage. All in all, this product is definately worth the extra purchase price. I am extremely happy with this product and give it a high five!!
These mats are great. They arrived in a timely manner and were flat.I mention this because one of the reviews I read had said they came folded, which I couldn't imagine. They also had no odor, which I mention because a couple of the reviews mentioned a skunk smell. They stay where you put them and don't slide around, even on our tile floor. Both my husband and I got one of these mats to use for our computer chairs and he is really pleased with them too. A good product for a good price.
This mat is a great value and gives you the extra room needed for rolling your chair that foot or two over to the printer. It is a hard plastic so you don't get that out-gassing smell you can have with the softer type. I plan on purchasing another one for my husband's desk, definately a winner.
This product was exactly as I expected and delivered on time! I am using this to protect my carpet from pet stains under a table. The thickness holds up and supports the weight of a solid cherry table.
The 53x48 polycarbonate Cleartex UltiMat is by far the best chair mat I have ever purchased. After quite a few of the $50-$70 PVC mats from *********, ****** and others that badly off-gassed, cracked and lasted at best 6 months, this one is a breath of fresh air (literally). The mat is thinner than PVC, but it holds up extremely well under my 6-2 275 lb body. Compare the properties of polycarbonate and PVC and there is no comparison. After about a month, it has been a great value for the price.
I went to ****** and bought their best heavy weight vinyl chair mat , my carpet is plush with memory foam padding. Two things, the mat stank like chemicals ( that's the PVC ) and after 20 minutes in my chair the wheels made little craters in the mat so no more rolling. After much research I found that EVERY vinyl mat will have the harsh smell and no matter the thickness of the mat it will stretch and not be flat. The POLYCARBONATE mat is lightweight has no discernable odor and doesn't cause lil craters to form around my chairs wheels. In other words worth, every penny of the extra cost. The vinyl mat went back. The Cleartex Ultimat is just that ...the ultimate chair mat.
It took me four tries, but I finally found a mat that does the job.I'll start by confessing to be a little on the hefty side. I tip the scales at 210 pounds. Er . . . I mean 215 pounds. Or so. So I need a mat that can take some weight without the chair casters sinking into the mat. With the first three I bought, if I stayed in one place for more than a few minutes, the casters would do just that, sink. This mat, not at all. I notice one reviewer pointed out the corners "curl up." Mine did do that a bit. I believe it is a consequence of the hardness of the polycarbonate- the downward pressure of the weight of the chair and person in the center naturally causes this. But a couple small squares of double-sticky carpet tape takes care of the problem. After three mats that didn't do the job for me, and almost a year of use of this mat, I am very pleased and recommend it, especially if you are a bit on the heavy side.
I would definitely agree with the previous reviews - watch out when cutting that strap! Really sturdy, even for being so thin. I have not experienced any cupping or wheel marking in the almost month that I have been using it. I sit at this desk 40 hours a week, often for several hours without moving my chair with no problems whatsoever. I have an average-weight office chair, and I am about 140 lbs. My previous mat was awful! Constant cupping so you would get "stuck" in one place all the time. Great product!
This is easily the best chair mat I have ever had. About 4 of us in my small office have the same mat. Some of them have had theirs for about a year, and they all look brand-new. The mat doesn't crack or slide and the surface is nice and smooth. My favorite quality is that there isn't that weird plastic odor. It is made of a more durable, odor-free plastic. I would highly recommend this chair mat to anyone who is tired of the traditional mat that cracks in about 4-6 months after the date of purchase. It is worth every penny.
I am beyond pleased with this chair mat so far. Typically, I like to wait in order test out anything I buy prior to writing a review, but this time I couldn't wait.I work from home, so I am in my office all day. My previous chair mat was purchased from ****** for something like $30-$40, and within a couple days after bringing it home, the cracking started. After about 5-6 months, there had been so much cracking and buckling that my feet were starting to sometimes get scraped when attempting to move the chair. And moving the chair was almost impossible as it would get stuck in all the cracks. This does not work well when you are working between two different computers. Needless to say, I looked to ****** to get a replacement instead of going to an ****** ****** store. My new Cleartex chair mat was received a couple days ago, and there is a complete difference. Instantly, I could tell the quality is much better. The mat is very thick and not too pliable. Now my chair can actually move freely without much effort. For the last two days, I have smiled after sitting down in my office chair when I used to curse and grumble every morning. What a difference! It's weird to say, but I love, love, love my new chair mat!
