Looks like the same stuff that I got from screw fix last year.
If it is it does make a cracking addition to an aluminium floored sib.
My aluminium floored Honwave was like kneeling on a cheese grater and as slippery as an eel hen wet - before I fitted the matting to it.
One of the best additions I have made to my Sib - and cheapest too.
It's still like new one year on and if cut and fitted properly it doesn't move around.
Easy to remove for washing out the Sib etc.
Here the link to the thread I posted last year.
Get your skates on and get down to Aldi!

I bought a couple of packs last year, good value and at 2' x 2' each tile soon cover the most vunerable areas of the floor although I did buy a second pack to completely cover the floor.
Well worth doing particularly on a flat air floor.

That looks like a good deal!

Disappointingly my nearest store is apparently about 20 miles away.

Can't say I've had any issues with it sliding around.
Mines cut to fit tight against the stringers.
My petrol tank sits on to of the matting - anchoring it down.
I have a heavy duty fishing box with an air flow cushion on top next to the tiller which I sit on 90% of the time - again this helps keeping it anchored down.
Can't praise it enough.

Isn't this sort of matting a PITA to have to fit together each time (like Lego), much easier to roll out a customer fitted HD rubber mat (+ cheaper/harder wearing) maybe?:

My mate uses the same matting under his kids play swings and chute.
It's out all year and has had loads of foot fall on top of it and still going strong it's 2 years old now.
No issues with it coming apart etc.
As for fitting it back together after washing out the Sib - I've never had any probs.
