Thank you for your question about the Universal Chair Mat for Low Pile Carpets.
All Universal Chair Mats are made to last a lifetime. Universal backs this up with a lifetime warranty on defects. If your mat cracks, for example, ten years from now, Universal will replace it. You just need to hold on to your order number and return the mat for a new one.
To save yourself frustration, make sure you get the right mat for your floor. The Universal Chair Mats are designed for use on carpets of 3/8" or less, including padding.
|How to measure carpet thickness:|
|Straighten the end of a paper clip, then sink it into the carpet, through the backing, until it reaches the floor.|
|Grab the paper clip at the point where it's flush with the carpet. (Be sure you're not matting down the carpet with your hand.) Measure the distance between your fingers and the end of the paper clip. That's the carpet's thickness.|
Hope this answers your question!
The UNV56807 Studded Chair Mat for Low Pile Carpet is a mat with some flexibility - as you can see from the photos, you can bend this mat somewhat. If you're looking for a more rigid mat, please consult our How To Choose a Chair Mat Guide. Much of choosing the right mat depends on the type of flooring, the size of your work area, and the configuration of your furniture. As a general rule, the thicker the mat, the less rigid.
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!
