Rubber Gym Flooring - Red Fleck - 15mm Gym Mats
Ordered on the 21st at night & received 26th July midday in Sydney location. Set them up almost instantly within the garage on concrete floor. All mats were exactly as listed & described. They arrived on a single pallet wrapped in black vinyl and had no damage. They each weighed 13KG, were red fleck & easy to place on the floor.
As my garage isn't exact meters in width I had to cut two of them with a Stanley knife which took about 15 minutes each as you're cutting through 15mm thick rubber. My biggest issue with these mats is they had an odour. This odour stays a while depending on which measures you take to air them or clean them out. Some suggest airing them in direct sunlight for a few days, some say clean them with neutral pH cleaner or just letting them air in the environment they're in. I aired them in the garage by leaving a window, side door and front garage door open for 12 hours a day for around 10 days.
Over night the rubber smell would build up, however correct ventilation CAN remove the odour. If you're putting these in a basement with no windows, sun dry air them first. Garage, just ensure good ventilation. I've currently got a 143kg power cage and 150kg of weights with multiple light dumbbells laying around and these function perfectly.
Another small issue I found was 2 of the mats had weird clear sticky tape what felt like machine pressed onto the mats that were easily removable. One mat actually had clear tape embedded in the mat what after carefully removing did cause a small laceration in the mat. This mat sits on the edge in the corner of the entire fit out (No real issue).
Even though decent foot traffic daily does cause a build up of dust, dirt and other random things they're easy to clean. Whether it'd be by sweeping or vacuum. Honestly no real issues or complaints. Well worth the price paid for quality mats from a quality company.
My order arrived and mats where damaged during transit, I contacted verve and they quickly sent additional mats free of charge.
Great quality product and great service.
