Purchased this magazine rack for a busy medical office. Well built and looks great. You should consider how you will hang the unit and if necessary purchase additional, more secure hardware to mount the rack.
This shelf on top does not fit as they would like you to believe. I had to ream out the holes in the top plastic tee to make this work. We have purchased many 'assemble at home' furniture pieces and this is the first one that did not have good form and fit. I wanted to return the product, but my wife insisted I tweak it to make it work.
I have this mat in front of a door where my 3 dogs are constantly going in and out.
I've had it for over a year and it shows no wear or curling of edges.
Great protection for carpet. Vacuums easily. If it EVER wears out, I'll definitely get another.
