We're very happy with the purchase of this bamboo chair mat. Much sturdier than the plastic floor mats we had ordered in past and we are confident it will last much longer. One of our branch offices has had this bamboo mat for 2 years and it still looks like new! We ordered them on that recommendation.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
According to the specs this should have worked on the office carpet but it does not. My chair does slide on the mat whereas it did not roll on the carpet at all, but the mat is squishy over the carpet. Think a plastic floor mat would have been a much better choice for my office.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
