When thinking about what type of flooring to install in your gymnasium, there is a lot to consider. You want the area to have a surface that incorporates the following:
• Cushioning for safety
• Absorbs sounds well
• Quality so it lasts a long time
Rubber flooring is ideal for your space as it offers all of the above. So, what are some great rubber flooring styles for your home or public gym?
• Rubber Rolls (usually 4ft. wide x 25 ft. or 50 ft. long)
• Rubber Mats (typically 6 ft. x 4 ft.)
• Rubber Tiles (usually 1 m. x 1m.)
• Interlocking Rubber Tiles (typically 2 ft. x 2 ft. with an interlocking component)
Are you looking for a smooth clean look? You should try GatorPRO rubber rolls which have fewer seams than most rubber flooring. The rolls cover larger areas making it the most economically friendly flooring on the market. Rolls are extremely versatile as they can be cut to the exact size you need. You won’t have to search around for months on end trying to find the perfect rubber flooring to fit the size of your gymnasium.
Guess what else? Rubber rolls come in commercial-grade quality so are ideal for a large gym with tons of heavy equipment. Protecting your floors from destruction due to the constant pressure is a key reason you need this durable rubber flooring product.
Another environmentally friendly flooring option is rubber mats. Rubber mats are used and then re-purposed when they are no longer required. They are made into new products whether they are chopped into mulch or used as rubber crumb for outdoor fields. There is no need to worry about rubber mats as a single-use product that leaves a negative impact on the environment. You can always find a way to re-use them in some shape or form.
Gator mats are terrific rubber mat options for your gym but you might even consider using Longhorn Classic, Longhorn Dome or Longhorn Max for a completely different area such as an agricultural surface.
Another main feature of this type of rubber flooring is its grip. The slip-resistant surface makes it a safe flooring for even the most uncoordinated people.
What is so great about rubber tiles? They can help prevent you from getting injured in an accident while saving you money on flooring. Rubber tiles are super soft making them perfect for gyms and other areas where you might fall. If you do take a tumble, the cushioning underneath you can limit the level of injury. Phew! As for saving money, specific zones that get worn out quickly can be taken out without having to replace the whole floor. You can simply replace a specific tile or several tiles which saves you dollars. GatorELITE or GatorFLEX are dually layered, offering even further protection against an impact with the floor.
Are you looking for a different type of rubber tile? Try interlocking ones.
Interlocking Rubber Tiles
Have you thought about installing your flooring by yourself? Interlocking rubber tiles are the perfect choice for you as they allow for the easiest installation. All you need to do is lay down the rubber tiles and click them together to provide you with a virtually seamless interlocking floor. Installation is easier than doing a jigsaw puzzle.
These kinds of interlocking tiles are even easy to store when not in use. They take up little space since they can be piled up and moved whenever you need them.
Now, let’s talk colour! What are your decorative choices when considering rubber flooring?
The most economical option as rubber flooring is primarily made from recycled rubber tires.
