Default Isolating floorstanders - Canadians! Canadian Tire mats

Alrighty,

I heard, on my way own the stairs, that my floorstanders are coupling into the floor too much and probably p-ing off the neighbors. Just so you know, chaps in Canada, that CT are selling these :

Grid Iron Step Floor Tiles, 24 x 24-in | Canadian Tire

Chop some to fit under, off I go (hopefully!).

OK, try:
Home | Canadian Tire

And then search for:
"Grid Iron Step Floor Tiles"

I think that their web site does dynamic changes with searches.

I wish we had a store like Canadian Tire down here.

I believe that the same thing (BTW, the 1st link works for mr), is available in more colourful tiles as a childrens floor mat product. I picked up a tile of yellow and red for $2 at a garage sale, and am using them as protective surfaces for my driver production. I have a friend that has even more colours as he has a ~14x14' room tiled with them.

Here, also at the Flat Tire store Kids Reversible Tiles, 24-in. | Canadian Tire

Pictures not good, but i believe is similar -- 2x the price thou Stats 4 Pack Colour Foam Mats - Yellow - Stats - Toys"R"Us
