Considering how versatile, durable, easy-to-maintain and environmentally friendly it is, rubber flooring has become an increasingly popular choice for gyms of all types.

When choosing rubber flooring for your gym its important to consider the following questions :

  • What activities will users use it for?
  • Will it be indoors or outdoors?
  • How many years do you want the flooring to last?
  • How many people will be using the facility?
  • How will you maintain the flooring?
  • Do you have unusual needs for sound absorption, shock absorption, traction or slip resistance?

Once you have established these answers, its then important to consider all types of rubber flooring available for your facility. The three most common rubber flooring types are:

– Mats: Mats come in various sizes, starting as small as 3-feet by 6-feet, so they’re versatile and easy to install. They also come in a range of thicknesses, from 0.25 inches to 2 inches for gyms and professional sports facilities.

– Tiles: Tiles typically come in 12, 18 or 36-inch squares and can be trimmed to fit any room or create custom patterns. They are often manufactured with interlocking edges for easy installation without adhesives. Tiles for high-traffic areas or outdoor use are also available in glue-down forms and typically range in thickness from 2 millimeters to 5 inches. One of their advantages is you can easily replace individual pieces.

– Rolls: Rolls provide flooring sheets 4-feet wide or wider and up to 50-feet long. Rolls have fewer seams, but installation is a little more involved. As such, they’re often used in larger workout areas, event centers and common areas.

There are also options for textures and finishes. Rubber flooring can be textured during manufacturing, creating depth and character in the venue where it’s installed.

The standard finish for rubber flooring is a subtle matte, suitable for most athletic installations. For a higher-impact impression, venues can also choose brighter colors, which are attained by polishing the rubber floor with a water-soluble wax emulsion. This gives the surface a great shine and makes the floor more durable and stain resistant.
