Although rubber flooring is widely used in commercial settings such as cafeterias, hospitals and gym weight rooms, it’s gaining traction as a viable flooring for homes, too.

One big reason is style — rubber flooring is available in a huge array of colors and textures that make it an appealing designer’s choice. A skilled installer can even cut rubber into patterns and mosaics that make eye-catching, one-of-a-kind floors.

 

Plus, it’s sound-absorbent, impervious to moisture and it’s cushiony comfortable underfoot. It comes in sheets for nearly seamless installations and DIY-friendly tiles that fit together with interlocking edges. Rubber flooring can be glued down, but many products are so heavy that glue is unnecessary — the flooring simply lays flat and stays put on its own.

 

The choice of sports flooring depends on a number of factors:

1. Area shape

Simply, this is the design of the space where the gym will occupy.

Many customers prefer an interlocking rubber flooring tile; thereby avoiding the need to glue or adhere the rubber tiles to the ground.  Interlocking rubber floors are loose laid on the concrete; and do not require glue or adhesives.

Other customers prefer rolled rubber flooring; due to the seamless appearance and easy cleaning methods.  Rolled rubber flooring is very popular in commercial gyms, weight rooms, locker rooms and more.  Rolled rubber can also be a great choice for your home basement gym.

2. Use of space

Different mat thicknesses demand different use. Aerobics and low impact use generally can do with ≤4mm thick while high impact sports and heavy weight areas demand extra padding.

Gym flooring must be Durable
