Any ideas on refurbished metal for new flooring?

I want something different. I have dogs, live in an older mobile home in the country with lots of dirt, and thought it might be interesting to use metal as flooring. Any ideas? Corrugated wouldn't work exactly but anything else that comes to mind?

    Sheets of 1/8 thick steel would work, but wuld be slipperier than greased owl poop.

    Metal is going to be extremely slippery, and cold or hot. I would try stick on vinyl tiles (they're pretty inexpensive, easy to clean and easy to install). If possible, be proactive and use a number of good quality door mats OUTSIDE to keep most of the dirt/mud from coming in, in the first place. There are also dirt catching mats you can place inside the door to help keep the floor clean.

    Metal flooring is a hazard by the fact you and you pets would be slipping and sliding all over the place. It sets in motion the chance you will collide with something that never was an obstacle before.
    Have you considered putting in an industrial non slip floor that are often used in factories or businesses where there is exposure to the outside? That might be something to look into...durable and does not show the dirt much, easy to sweep up and clean, plus resistant to wearing down in heavy traffic areas.
