Rolled Rubber Flooring
Nov 12th 2012
We employ a somewhat unconventional use of your product. In early 2011 the Montgomery Fencing Club was moving into a new space which asked us to protect the wood floor from stray points which they were concerned might gouge it. Whatever we used also had to be movable as we were moving into a shared, community space. We decided that most standard floor protective systems would not hold up under the stresses of our sport, so we began to explore more heavy-duty products. Complicating our efforts further are the dimensions of our playing surface: A fencing strip is 1-2m wide and 14m long. While there are some products specifically manufactured for our purpose, they are prohibitively expensive for our club. We found your rolled rubber products which offered a continuous 4’x50’ surface which is nearly perfect for our needs, particularly when combined with your very reasonable price and in-stock availability. We ordered a roll of 3/8” black, rubber flooring to test. It did not take us long to order three more.
The strips have performed very well, and look good in the process. We used them for a tournament and received compliments from the visiting fencers. One even inquired about them as a possible portable strip for remote demonstrations. At 400 pounds per roll, I did not recommend it for that purpose, but I passed along your company’s contact information. However, if someone has easy, level access to on-site storage, they are manageable as temporary flooring and work well for fencing strips.
We worked with Paul Manzavrakos for the order. He was very helpful throughout the process, including follow-up questions after the sale. If we find ourselved in a position to expand the club, Greatmats will be the first place I look.
