Anyone from the UK of a certain vintage would know what they are! The trays used by the big bakers to transport bread to the shops:



Like milk crates they seem to be commonly 'redeployed' for other purposes.

Cow or horse matting like these works well - Light Weight Rubber Stable Mat 6ft x 4ft x 12mm

Thanks for the bread tray explanation. Should have known I suppose (I'm old enough to still miss rotary dial phones.)

All the mats I've seen are similar to the bar mats I referenced, in different sorts of end uses.

One other thing to look for are the gel mats (usually sold for foot comfort) but they tend to be expensive. Lot lighter than the rubber mats though.

I'll check out the horse/cow matting and report back. The non slip floor as made by ribcraft is excellent for just feet or boots but is getting a bit of kicking from dive weights and cylinder being dragged about etc.
