I recently renovated my studio, which has a concrete floor. When I
am working I can become preoccupied and accidently knock things on

product that is used in such places as exercise weight rooms, day
cares, and behind bars. The fire rating describes its ability to
withstand the complete burn of a cigarette without marring it
(whatever that means). In any case, I felt is would be safe enough,
simple to sweep, easy on the body, virtually indestructible, and I
don't have to worry about denting my work if I accidently drop it.
Also, it's easy to move my roller chair from one work area to
