It is actually double backed sticky taped to an existing sumo ring.  A
wooden ring with a steel surface will work.

Japanese class specification is 3.2 mm thick material or 1/8 inch, ASM 366.
Same material used to make the sides of you appliances.

But weight is an issue.  My wooden sumo rings weigh a little over 100
pounds.  A hundred pounds really isn't that big of a deal, the real problem
is the physical size.  So I just roll it around or move it on a hand truck.
I always rent a UHaul truck to take it to events.  It is too big to fit in
the back of my 15 year old Subaru that the Insurance company has decided to
total because the front head light broke in a minor fender bender, that
wasn't event my fault.
