Default Where to get ozite?

Could someone tell me where to get carpet other then CRC? I know it has been discussed on here before I just can't find any info on it in the search. Also any experiences would be great.

The other type of ozite is made by DuPont. I think you can get it at Home Depot or a carpet store.

This came off of Calandra's website.

In general, rolls are 125' x 12'. A roll that size is 166.666 square yards and the price of the carpet ranges from $3.99 - $4.25 per square yard depending on quantity and ordering situation. Call for more details....

In my experience, ozite has more grip than Dupont. I know a lot of people would say otherwise, but i think if car counts are low, the Dupont has less grip. On the other hand, dupont builds traction quickly if there are many cars running for a while. As in a big event.

I think you can get the DuPont from Home Depot but don't quote me on that. Otherwise try a carpet store.

The good Ozite other than the Clandra stuff is from DuPont but its not the stuff you get at home depot. It is sourced direct from a carpet mill in Dalton, Ga. This is the stuff that the 1999 and 2000 carpet nats were run on at Minnreg in Clearwater, Fl. This carpet has quite a bit more traction than CRC Ozite. It sells for around $2.99 per square yard. I will get details on its source posted here tomorrow.
