My samples from robinsons and easimat have arrived!
They look very similar, the easimat is slightly thicker, and looks a little bit more sturdy. The robinsons sample has warped, so that it curls up slightly at the corners and is bowed in the middle section. The robinsons mats are about £10 cheaper /mat, and other than bowing appear the virtually the same, although there's a difference of 5 years warranty between the mats.
It is only a really small piece of sample about 20 cm x 10cm. Have any of you that have had robinsons mats found them to warp, or go up in the corners? I'm not sure if it's done this due to it being a small sample. I thought of ringing them to check that this won't happen but figured they would tell me that they don't warp, even if they do, just to sell the things.
I could see it being a problem if they do warp, as knowing how lazy Ted is with his feet he would trip over.Ted also shoes on, and when he eats his dinner he occasionally paws the ground but fairly gently, would this destroy the mats?
