I recently purchased this rubber flooring to match the existing flooring in a fitness gym. It wasn't as easy to abut the center pieces as I thought it would be. I did have to do some trimming because the existing flooring stretched a little over time. Next gym I will definitely purchase a thicker floor. 1/4 inch is not recommended for commercial application but I wasn't going to pull it all up and start over. Large machines move, and when they do, they cut through these. For a home application I would highly recommend this thickness. Always purchase the edge sealer. It is well worth the few extra dollars.
