New Workshop Floor
Here's a shot of my workshop floor, uneven concrete and last painted 12 years ago. The sponge tiles around my workbench were getting really tatty and didn't give the coverage I wanted so I replaced them with some heavy duty interlocking tiles from Paf Systems www.pafsystem.com The cost is £32 per square metre inc vat.
They are 7 mm thick and click together with a bit of gentle persuasion!
After doing the work bench area, I was so pleased with them that I did the whole main workshop.
The tiles laid very quickly but moving the machinery around slowed things down somewhat. The planer and table saw weigh nearly 400 kg each!
The smooth surface is easy to sweep clean and the uneven surface has disappeared. They are much nicer to walk on and if I drop stuff anywhere in the workshop it should survive unscathed and if I ever move workshop they come apart really easily so I can take them with me.
