Pros: solid sturdy practical.
Cons: only available in packs of 3.
" Given the limited size of a loft hatch, my limited skills at DIY and the cramped confines of a loft for working, these boards were a perfect, practical solution to my requirements.
The boards are very sturdy and interlock quite easily as long as you put the first board down the right way!!
The size of the boards makes them easy to handle in a small space like a loft.
I used loft legs to mount the boards and the two products work perfectly together to give a solid platform for loft storage. "

" great price, delivered when they said and now affixed in the loft.
marked down to good only since the board seems a smidgen less dense [and strong] than previous versions.
fine for 99% of loft storage ...

" Loft had been started by the last home owner & I thought it would be a good idea to do the rest it's easy to use and it looks very tidy . Easy guide on product to show you how to fit it together . It is a little expensive if you had a large area to do however it is very easy to lay and you can get the job done quickly and let's face it there are nicer places to be than
being in a loft

Pros: fit together well
Cons: board length vs modern joist spacing
" Just finished the straightforward job of laying 5 packs over some of the top-up insulation using the loft legs and the result looks very neat. Only downside was that the boards are 1220 length and so had to be trimmed to match the 600 spacing of the joists. "

" Purchased to floor a loft eave area. Red pencil price (as bought 5 packs) and good value when purchased. Sturdy and does what it says on the packaging. Possibly a better lip / toungue and grove than some competitors products, which makes for sturdy interlock between boards. Overall, very happy with the product and will help add some storage area in our house. "

Pros: in and out of store in next to no time
Cons: remember to check before loading!
" I recently used the new 'Click and Collect' facility at the newly opened Loughton Store to purchase some flooring for my loft. Everything worked well but when I opened the packs to start laying that evening, I found one of them so severely damaged on the tongue and groove edges I had to work out the best way of laying them to minimise the effect of the damage. Unfortunately I needed to complete the job that evening so not worth taking back. The purpose of this review is to warn others that with Click and Collect you tend to omit the quality checks imposed when selecting from a display or rack.
Otherwise, everything up to normal standard.

Wrong size for a modern house,

Cons: wrong size for a modern loft
" Modern houses have, now I have found out, 600mm joist centres. So what size do they make these boards ? 1200mm you would think. Oh no they don't, they make them 1220mm, i.e. 20mm too long. So after you put the second one down, it's end hangs over the next joist, and the further you go, the more they miss the centre of the joists. So if you want them to fit your loft joists you will have to lop off 20mm off each one. What a stupid idea it is to have them the wrong size for modern houses. "

" Slot together easily and the tongue and groove helps give a bit more strength. If mounting on loft legs Would recommend staggering as otherwise overall flatness of surface might be tricky as one board sticks up compared to another "
