Thanks, those floors are those 6"x24" porcelain wood style tiles laid on a 45 degree angle. That hallway takes a 90 degree and I didn't think having the floors laid at a 90 degree would look good (one part of the hallway I ti thought would look weird). The guy who laid it did a pretty good job (I'm still having them come out and fix small issues), but they laid it like a real wood floor. That is to day that the grout lines aren't in a specific pattern. A lot of times the tile guys lay them in a brick pattern so that the grout lines line up every other row. I didn't want that, and they didn't want to do it that way (Which was great). They were also one of the few companies willing to jack up the air handler and lay the tile under it (as the tile continues into that equipment room).
And the tape was just one of those inspired moments you get when trying to solve a problem. If you're gonna try it, realize that I used electrical tape in the center of the blue tape (sticky sides together) so that you wouldn't see blue between the gaps. Since people go into that room to get stuff out of the printer, I'm trying my best to close up those gaps to prevent light bleed. It won't matter much once I get the hinged panel over the rack.
Thanks again for the kind comments
I spent many an hour going through this thread for ideas
