Thanks for your question about the thickness of a chair mat. I understand your concern about dimpling and I will be able to provide you with the correct advice on this issue. When dimpling occurs it is because the surface, in this case carpet, has pile (thickness of carpet) and carpet padding that is too high for the mat. There is an easy way to test this and I am attaching a link to our "chair mat guide"
This will walk you though the best way to measure, shape, and choose the best mat for your floors. I would recommend looking at this article. Second thing I would tell someone is that the chair mats that you will find at the box stores (Office Depot, Staples, Office Max) are going to be for low pile carpet, they can be rolled up and are not going to be as thick. Chair mats are like other things in life, the more they cost the thicker, more durable, and better the product. Cheap = flimsy.
Hope this helps and good luck to you, please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you!
Thank you very much for your note and here are all the chair matts with "beveled edges" that we stock. Just click on this link for the full list of beveled edge chair matts. There are a lot of little things to consider when purchasing a chairmat and questions that you should think about. I am attaching an article that was written a while back on "How to choose a chair mat?"
It is a step by step guild on the questions to ask when you are looking to purchase a chair mat for your home or office. I always tell people the old saying "you get what you pay for", which is very true for choosing a chair mat. We see this every day that a customer will buy a cheap chair mat from a box store like Office Depot, etc. and not be happy because it is too thin for the surface they are using the chair mat on. The cheaper the chair mat the easier it can travel, because it is so thin you can roll it up. The thicker/more durable the mat, the more expensive and the longer it will last.
Hope this helps. Good luck with your selection and we really do appreciate your question. Come back again and we look forward to serving you in the future.
Scroll down to where you see product specs, and here is an example on the UNV56806: Length 48 in Width 36 in Lip Size (W x L) 20 x 12 So on this example the the 48" x 36" is the total size of the chair mat. The lip of the chair mat starts after 36", so that would mean that lip would be the next 12" (that would go under the desk.). The 20" wide part of the lip would go under your desk. Hope this helps!
