Home Gym: Should I Install Rubber Flooring Over My Carpet?

The most common type of gym flooring is rubber flooring. It’s a safe, non-slip surface that withstands heavy weights and equipment. But most rubber home gym flooring requires a hard, level subfloor to be placed on top. 

Because carpet is soft and lacks the support needed for a home gym floor, it doesn’t always provide an ideal subsurface for rubber flooring to lay on. However, if removing your carpet is not an option, some products are still suitable for this application.

Several of our products are eco-friendly and made in Canada. Save time and money with quick and easy installation!

The Best Type of Rubber Flooring for Carpet

The top rubber flooring for a home gym to safely use over carpet are VersaRUBBER™ mats or GatorSHOCK tiles. Both are designed to work well over the top of carpet flooring, and both flooring options provide support during workouts while protecting the subfloor from weights and equipment. 

If you have a low-pile carpet, it is vital to use a high-quality rubber sheet, mat or tile that will be heavy enough to sit flat. Our VersaRUBBER™ sheets are a good option because they are vulcanized and can be installed without glue or tape.

If you have a plush, higher-pile carpet, there are fewer options, but there are still options. Our GatorSHOCK tiles are ultra-thick and can be installed on most plush carpets. 

GatorSHOCK tiles and VersaRUBBER™ sheets are simple to install and offer impact-absorbing properties for your rubber flooring. Among their many benefits, GatorSHOCK tiles and VersaRUBBER™ mats are:

  • Resistant to impact and damage
  • Easy to install
  • Water-resistant and easy to clean
  • Durable and functional
  • Versatile with speckled or full-colour options

Rubber floor tiles can also be purchased in small quantities, so expanding your home gym flooring area is easy.

Additionally, rubber flooring is resistant to stains, and spills can be easily wiped away. Regular maintenance involves checking for any signs of wear or damage and addressing them promptly. Moreover, rubber flooring is slip-resistant, offering stability and reducing the chances of accidental falls.
