Vinyl backed carpet runners are usually available in a 3', 4', or 6' width up to 60' in length. Vinyl backed carpet mats can have an olefin or nylon fiber for use as indoor floor mats or with a polypropylene fiber for use as outdoor floor mats. Vinyl backed carpet runners are generally less expensive than rubber backed carpet mats but may not perform as well. Use rubber backed carpet mat runners to reduce the possibility of "edge curl" from occuring. Carpet mat runners with a rubber backing can have nylon fibers for use as indoor floor matting or polypropylene fibers for use as outdoor floor matting.
