I purchased a product used for ceiling applications from Home Depot. On sale for 21 bucks, took a box plus 2 panel from another box. Will use the rest up front.The pieces come in panels about 18" X 36"....10 to a box and have closed cell 1" squares with pretty stiff wire forming the web. I had to use wire cutters to shape the corner radius in the rear. I was surprised at how noisy they were walking over them, but with the carpet padding down it went away. I'm going to continue in the hallway switching from carpet to a solid product...just haven't made up my mind as to which. Then back to carpet in the salon area. Why the carpet? Cause I already own it.
So far the floor is in pretty good shape....happy days!
