My old floor, shown here in this post, was really getting a bit beat up. It lasted close to 15 years taking quite a bit of abuse so I can’t complain. When I put that floor in way back when, I had it in mind to face it with cork and I still hope to do a cork floor someday, but I found something at work that tempted me.
The stuff came to us protecting some stainless steel weather bouys. Approximately 3/4″ thick, the material is closed cell foam and quite stiff. I’m thinking its polyethylene, but it sure isn’t soft. It is very tough, the surface seems resistant to catching sharp edges. It also has strands of some sort of fibre embedded, to reduce tearing I guess.
I cut it up into strips and installed between the seat rails.
Pretty bright eh? But most of the time I have some of those interlocking foam pads on the floor.
And all covered by an inexpensive bit of carpet from Canadian Tire.
Here is a close up of a scrap of the foam.
You know, having that bright colour on the floor makes me want to have a brighter coloured throw rug.
