This is a great price for a tempered glass chair mat - even cheaper than most hard plastic plastic chair mats of the same size.

I am kind of pissed, I bought this for $60 three weeks ago and thought that was an awesome price. Amazon won't adjust my price so I'm tempted to return and re-buy but I was so happy to get this for $60 that I don't want to take advantage of Amazon, I'm sure the shipping for this is more than $15 due to the size and weight. Especially since before finding this glass mat I bought a hard plastic one for $50 (which was the best deal I could find for plastic) and I am returning that one which is now selling for $60 [amazon.com].

As for the quality, unlike plastic mats, glass is glass so all tempered glass mats should be of comparable quality. I'm happy with mine and have no complaints.

Edit: Just noticed this was a few bucks cheaper last February and that was a popular FP deal.

Quote from donnieSoprano :
Lots of people concerned about stubbing toes...it's a 1/4" thick.

Overall, I feel it's akin to discovering the advantages to high quality cookware, knives, computer mouse/keyboard, luggage, vehicles, tools, watch, furniture, etc. The lower quality has it's place and will get the job done, but when you find one of those exceptional products, you vow to never get anything less.

You won't know until you do. Glass chair mats (if you're on carpet of any type) are a life changer, imo.

Truth .

Quote from sdpi1ot :
Yes but at the same time, look at the reviews. I have a dining table and two coffee tables made with tempered glass and they've been hit with all kinds of things, and so far so good. I also thought this was a crazy idea, but it seems to work and people love it. The company selling these would go broke with returns if they shattered that easily.
Exactly. My dining tabletop is all tempered glass. If it was so easy to break it would be really dangerous. Not so much from being cut by shards of glass but from steaming hot food & drinks spilling on to you. Or a heavy pot full of food landing on you. These chair mats are rated to handle hundreds of pounds of pressure (I think someone said it was 1000lb) so I think the risk of breakage has been overdone here. I think people just can't wrap their heads around putting all their weight on glass.

Think about all those glass observation decks that hang over cliffs and stick out of sky scrappers. Each thing is manufactured to withstand the stress for which it was produced. You can't just discount this type of product by saying "glass bad".

Quote from michaelts :
Agreed on the inline skate / rollerblade wheels. 5 minute job to swap the poor wheels that chairs often shit with to a set. Huge improvement!

I have used the glass and bamboo 'mats' in the past and while and improvement over the plastic versions, the mich larger diameter wheels of the inline skate replacement reduces the need - plus no marks, quieter, etc on hard surfaces!

Edit:typo
Any info on how to swap or where to buy the Rollerblade wheels?

Swapping wheels takes 30-45 seconds. Buy any high-rated ones on Amazon

Decent price. I bought 2 in March 2020 for $52 each. Replaced the cracked plastic mats and happy with it. I don't see too much for a problem with rolling off the mat since you can roll back on. The mat does slip on the carpet more so I have to adjust it every so often. I like these and would recommend them. I work from home pre-covid so use these daily.

Quote from RedNProud :
Just an FYI, if you were to place a layer of automotive tint (the glue on, not the static cling) or security film to one side of the glass it would prevent the pieces from going everywhere in the event of a break. Just put the tint side down to the carpet and you will still have the smooth rolling of glass.

If you've ever had a side window or sunroof break in a car, you know what I'm talking about with the little pieces. Any sort of laminate glued to it will stick the pieces in place.
AUtomotive glass is laminated on the front (and sides if you have a higher grade). That is different because its 2 sheets of tempered glass 'laminated' together with glue. Its going to be way stronger than a sheet of security film on an exposed side. That said, a film is better than nothing but dont expect it to be basically inpenetrable like automative laminated glass.

I ended up getting rollerblade wheels instead. IMO much better than a plastic or glass mat.
This. Slap on some $25 rollerblade style wheels on your office chair and you can take that bish off-roading.

These are great for any carpet. The only issue is you need a very large slab of glass. Because unlike plastic once your tire falls from the side of the glass, you have to get off the seat and move the seat back up. It acts like a step.

Quote from Slee_Stack :
I have a wooden chair mat that's going on 10 years. The most annoying thing about it is that it will shift over time on the carpet. i have to recenter it about once a month.

Other than that, my chair rolls great on it and I suspect it will last another 10 years.
I second the wooden chair mat. I'm using it on hardwood flooring and it matches so closely that it looks like I don't have a mat at all. Perfect friction. Not too slippery and not too much resistance.

I've only used mines for 2 years. I think people can make their own buying extra wood flooring planks and felt underneath.

I agree with the folks who say that the moment you drop a small, hard object on it, it will crack. It will sustain the weight of 5 casters evenly distributed. But not a quick blow from say a dropped mug or stress ball.

Tempered glass is funny. You can take a hammer to it and it won't break. You can take a piece that's 10' long and let it bend in the middle by 1'. Tap the edge with something metallic/solid though? Yeah you're going to randomly be finding glass for the next 2 years. I grew up in the glass industry and came back to it 15 years ago or so. No way in hell I'd have a glass mat in my home/office.
