If your chessboard doesn't butt up against a wall, we recommend the optional edge ramps with the corner pieces that slope gently up from the floor to meet the top of the chess board, and thus reduce the trip hazard. A set comes with enough to go all the way around this MegaChess board (32 edge pieces + 4 corner pieces).
The Rubberized Vinyl Chess board is a commercial grade chess board used in some of the finest resorts and residences in the world. This chess board has 12" squares and is indestructible. The main features of this board are portability, beauty, durability and safety. Rubberized vinyl is the heavy-duty flooring at public gyms. This can stand up to any abuse your chess players can dish out. Anti-skid surface. The tiles clip together easily, and because it is flexible without being flimsy you can roll it up for quick storage.
We highly recommend finishing the chess board with the optional Safety Edge Ramps. The Safety Edge Ramps not only provide a finished edge to the chess board, but they are a major safety feature. The Edge Ramps angle down from the edge of the chess board to the surface of the ground, eliminating a potential trip and fall incident. For commercial installations this is a must.
