Most Frequently Asked Questions About Rubber Flooring
What is Rubber Flooring?
Rubber Flooring is a form of specialty flooring generally made from recycled tires. Rubber flooring can come in roll, mat or tile form. Most versions are not vulcanized, meaning you can see the individual particles. Vulcanized rubber flooring usually comes in mat form and is completely waterproof.
Where can you install rubber flooring?
Over virtually any hard, flat surface. Special precautions may need to be taken in some instances. For more info, on this read our Surfaces for Installing Rolled Rubber Flooring blog.
Is rubber flooring safe for kids?
Yes. For more info on this, read our is Recycled Rubber Playground Flooring Safe for Kids? blog.
What is the best thickness for rubber flooring?
This very much depends on your intended usage. The more traffic and especially the more impact the flooring will endure the thicker your rubber flooring should be, assuming the type of rubber is apples to apples. Keep in mind that vulcanized rubber will not need to be as thick as non-vulcanized rubber.
Where is rubber flooring used?
Weight Rooms, Ice Arenas, Event Centers, Pet Areas, Fencing Areas, Liquor Stores, Underlayments and more. For more info on this, visit our Endless Uses for Rolled Rubber Flooring page.
What is rubber tile flooring?
Modular rubber flooring squares that can be connected together to cover spaces of varying sizes. Most rubber tiles can connect together, but the style of interlock can vary significantly.
Consider the following potential uses for rubber flooring:
- Weight rooms
- Gym floors
- Playground surfaces
- Dog play areas
- Equine or horse stalls and barns
- Basement floors
- Areas around ice rinks
- Decks and patios
High quality rubber floors are popular for indoor and outdoor installations. Indoor rubber flooring is available in mats, rolls, and interlocking tiles. Most outdoor rubber floor comes in the form of interlocking tiles or pavers.
Using rubber floor materials can also help to reduce your carbon footprint, since most of the rubber used in flooring is made from recycled materials. The rubber is most often from recycled automobile tires, and the new rubber flooring is durable and lasts for decades.
Rubber: An Environmentally Friendly Option
With almost 260 million tires discarded each year, recycled rubber products have been a part of one of the biggest efforts made to limit how much of this waste ends up in landfills each year. Rubber flooring is frequently made from recycled rubber, much of which consists of used car or truck tires. When you consider how many tires can end up in a landfill each year, it's no wonder that rubber flooring is such a popular way to go green.
It's also important to consider how long rubber lasts. When used as flooring, you can expect the rubber to last for decades. It's extremely durable and many of our flooring products come with 10 or even 15-year warranties. This means less wasted product in the long run, reducing waste a second time.
If you want to keep your project earth-friendly, or are working on a project where going green is important, choosing rubber flooring is an excellent way to ensure that you're making a smart environmental choice.
Rubber may be the perfect flooring solution for your project. Below are the various types of rubber flooring that Greatmats offers.
Rubber Floor Tiles
Rubber floor tiles tend to be one of the most popular rubber flooring options, especially for use in smaller projects. Our indoor rubber floor tiles are available in various interlocking and glue-down forms. These tiles are often used for home gyms, horse stalls, exercise areas and playgrounds.
Rubber floor tiles are usually available as 2x2 or 3x3 foot squares, and most tiles have puzzle-style interlocking edges for easy installation. Tiles for indoor are usually between 2 mm and 3/4 inch thick.
Rubber tiles for outdoor use are usually thicker, and can be as thick as 5 inches. These tiles are popular for playgrounds, patios and decks. Many of the thicker tiles offer fall height protection of between 8 and 10 feet. Most interlocking tiles don't require adhesives, though some gluing may be recommended for rubber playground flooring tiles.
Glue-down rubber tiles with straight edges are often used in commercial and retail environments. They are about 1.5 feet wide and are non-absorbent.
Rubber flooring tiles offer the following benefits:
- Easy installation, especially with interlocking tiles
- Smaller size is easier to move, allowing for one-person installation
- A variety of thicknesses provide increased durability and even fall height protection.
Interlocking Rubber Floor Tile Kits
To simplify your flooring project, consider the Rubberlock line of gym rubber floors, which are available in kits. These kits are affordable, easy to install, and pre-determined in size, so they take the guesswork out of ordering the right products for your project.
This is Greatmats' first rubber floor covering to be offered in a kit designed for easy island installations in room corners. The kit includes beveled edge pieces for all sides of the mats, creating a true island. Two side beveled edges and non-beveled edges are also included so that you can install the tiles in the corner of a room while having two finished edges. Beveled edges allow for an easy transition from a hard, flat surface to your home or gym floor area.
These Rubberlock interlocking rubber tiles are easy to install and move. The tiles measure 2x2 feet and feature a tight-fitting interlocking design. There's no need to use adhesive for the installation.
These floor tile kits offer the following benefits:
- Create a home gym or workout area in any part of a room - including the corners, or as an island installation
- Take the guesswork out of ordering; the kit includes everything that you need
- Installs in minutes with no adhesive necessary
Rubber Floor Mats
Rubber floor mats are versatile options suitable for use on playgrounds, in gyms, in horse stalls, and even in industrial areas.
Our most common size rubber floor mat measures 4x6 feet. You can choose from a variety of thicknesses for a rubber mat, ranging between 3/8 inch and 3/4 inch. For a secure installation over a larger area, we offer rubber mats with interlocking edges that ensure a secure fit.
Our Playground Swing mats range from 2x4 feet to 3x5 feet in size and are between 1 and 2.25 inches thick. Other rubber playground mats are offered in 2.6x4.5 foot and 3x3 foot sizes. These mats are frequently used underneath equipment, such as slides, to provide additional durability and protection.
If you're looking for additional sizes and thicknesses, we have plenty of other products to fit your project. Some rubber mats intended for use in horse stalls are available in sizes large as 14x14 feet.
Many rubber floor mats are intended to be used independently, but in some circumstances, they are installed butted up next to each other to cover larger surfaces. A rubber floor mat can help to add protection and durability to an underlying surface, and their potential uses are endless.
Consider using rubber floor mats for the following:
- Additional protection and durability under swings, slides, and other playground equipment
- Coverage for gym areas that require additional protection, such as in weight areas
- Durable surfaces for work spaces, barn aisles, or other heavily trafficked areas
Rolled Rubber Flooring
Rolled rubber flooring is an ideal solution when you need installation over a large area while minimizing the number of seams present. Rubber rolls can add a certain degree warmth and comfort to cold concrete floors. They create less seams than using interlocking rubber tiles, but rubber rolls are large and heavy and require multiple people for installation. Rubber rolls are generally a more economical choice than tiles when you're working with a large area.
Rubber rolls are most frequently used in large industrial or workout areas, such as gyms, but they are also a popular option for canine and equine facilities as well as liquor stores, event centers and more. Rubber is easy to disinfect and clean, making it a convenient flooring option.
Rubber rolls are made from virgin, synthetic, or recycled rubber materials. Sometimes multiple materials are used. Greatmats carries rubber from many national manufacturers, which allows us to find a factory closest to you, saving you money on freight delivery.
Consider the following benefits of rolled rubber flooring:
- Minimizes seams in large installations for a more professional look.
- More economical option for large applications.
- Easy to disinfect and clean for minimal maintenance.
Rubber Playground Flooring
Playgrounds require specific flooring designed with traction, durability and safety in mind. For these reasons, we suggest our fall-height-rated outdoor tiles such as the Blue Sky Rubber Playground Tiles, Max Playground Rubber Tiles, or Bounce Back Rubber Playground Mats. These tiles and mats are easier to handle than rolled rubber, and they are all designed for outdoor use.
Rubber playground tiles have been proven to be one of the safest forms of playground flooring, since they are not displaced by children swinging, dragging their feet or falling. They also do not hide any hazards such as broken glass, nails or other sharp objects.
Rubber tiles for playground surfaces are an increasingly popular choice, since they provide fall height ratings and are easy to install, repair and maintain. Outdoor rubber tiles create a clean and safe surface which is guaranteed to last for years, even when subjected to elements such as the sun, rain and snow.
Most rubber floor tiles carry a 10 to 15 year warranty. If a section of the flooring needs to be replaced, you can remove only those particular tiles without needing to resurface the entire area.
Rubber tiles offer the following benefits for playground settings:
- Fall height ratings help you meet safety requirements.
- Excellent durability ensures the tiles last despite UV rays, rain, and snow.
- Easy installation creates a smooth, professional looking surface.
- The surface doesn't hide objects like broken glass, as loose materials like sand can do.
- If areas are damaged, you can remove and repair just those sections.
Rubber Gym Flooring
Rubber flooring is a popular option for home and commercial gyms, as well as for weight rooms. Because rubber can be set directly over concrete, wood, or any other flat, hard surface, installation is simple.
Rubber floors can help to protect the subfloors, but it also provides sound and some thermal insulation.
Rolled rubber, sold in 4-foot-wide rolls, is typically the most economical rubber floor option. Rolled rubber also results in fewer seams than working with interlocking tiles. However, rolled rubber is heavy and its installation requires multiple people.
Interlocking rubber tiles guarantee easy installation, as the tiles are relatively lightweight, conveniently sized and designed for wall-to-wall application. Cut tiles or rolls to fit with a sharp utility knife. Some of the most popular gym flooring options are our Geneva Interlocking Rubber Tiles, Gym Rubber Floor Mats and Rubber Floor Rolls. And don't forget about our revolutionary sound and vibration reducing ShokLok tiles!
Consider rubber matting, rubber tiles, or rubber rolls for the following gym applications:
- Flooring for large gym or athletic areas (rolled rubber is the most economical option)
- Creating a home gym or converting a basement or garage into a workout space
- Providing additional protection in a weight room or other heavily trafficked workout space
Rubber Flooring for Horse Stables
Rubber mats have long been used in equine environments for horse stalls, because of their safety, durability and easy maintenance. However, rubber mats for use in stables are also available in interlocking kits and rubber rolls. When used in stalls, mats can make stall cleaning easier, provide additional cushion over a concrete base, and help to reduce labor and bedding costs.
Rubber stall mats are sold in high quality 3/4 inch thick interlocking tiles, as well as in the common straight edge 4x6 foot mats. Interlocking stall kits are available in 10x10 foot areas and larger, so you don't have to worry about cutting pieces to fit your stall. Interlocking stall mats can be custom made to fit any space, including aisle ways, storage areas, wash bays and outdoor paths.
The Sundance 4x6 foot stall mat is an economical option for stables. This tile, available in a 3/4 inch thickness, can be purchased as both a straight-edge and interlocking tile. This is our most economical 3/4 inch interlocking rubber tile. Supplied in many locations nationwide, the tile is ready for quick and affordable freight shipping.
Rubber mats aren't only for horse stalls, though. Consider the following potential uses for rubber mats in barns:
- Barn aisle flooring
- Grooming stall and wash stall flooring
- Horse trailer mats
- Kick mats for horse stalls
There are potentially endless uses for rubber mats in stables.
Rubber Flooring for Dog Facilities
Rubber flooring has quickly become a go-to solution for the growing dog daycare industry. Rubber rolls are ideal for dog play areas, since the surface is gentle on the dogs' feet but is also resistant to damage from dogs' toenails or fluids. The rubber is easy to clean and is highly durable, so your investment will go far.
Some of the nation's leading dog daycare facilities have installed rolled rubber in their play areas for a safe, attractive, and economical surface.
Rubber Anti Fatigue Flooring
If you spend long periods of time on your feet, then rubber industrial anti-fatigue mats can reduce the stress that standing exerts on your body. These mats offer a non-slip, forgiving surface that is safe to work on. For mats to be used in kitchens and under bar stools, grease resistant options are available. Ring mats also have perforated holes to keep workers up off slippery, wet floors, such as those that occur in commercial kitchens and in dish washing stations.
Anti-fatigue mats and their safe surfaces contribute to a safe and productive work environment. They are essential for any business where workers are on their feet for long periods of time, and are useful in kitchens, factories and other work places.
Rubber Roof and Deck Flooring
Rubber is a common flooring material for rooftop patios and decks. Rubber is heavy enough to resist strong winds and weathering, and it won't freeze or be damaged by extreme temperature fluctuations.
Additionally, rubber provides excellent slip resistance and offers some fall height protection for an overall safe flooring surface.
Commercial Rubber Flooring and Accessories
Greatmats provides flooring tiles, stair treads, and wall-to-wall bases for commercial installations. We offer the Burke Flooring line of Burke Endura specifically for commercial spaces such as schools, libraries, airports and offices.
This flooring line features tiles in multiple colors, and you can choose from three surface textures: square, sculpted and coin.
Stair treads are available in all widths and nose styles, and you can purchase them with or without risers or safety edging.
Rubber and vinyl wall bases are designed to match the rubber tiles and stair treads for a finished, uniform look.
The Burke Endura line offers everything you need for your commercial flooring project.
Rubber Flooring Pricing
Rubber flooring is generally an affordable option, though there are several factors that play a role in the price you will pay for your rubber floors. Take into consideration the flooring's thickness, size and convenience when choosing an option that fits within your budget.
Rolled rubber is usually the least expensive flooring option, and it starts at just over $1 per square foot. While rolled rubber is thin, the large rolls can be inconvenient to transport and install because of their size and weight. This can also affect the cost of shipping. When you order, make sure that you speak with a Greatmats sales representative who can find the best shipping option to save you money.
Floor mats, which are thicker than rolled rubber, are available in 4x6 foot sizes for just under $2 a square foot. They can be an economical option for outfitting horse stalls, olympic weight lifting areas or other smaller projects.
In the mid-range price scale ($4-$5 per square foot) you'll find a lot of our interlocking rubber puzzle tiles and Equine Paver Tiles. These rubber floor products are conveniently sized for easy transportation and installation. Most of the interlocking tiles and equine paver tiles fall in the thickness range between 3/8 and 3/4 inch thick and are 2x2 feet in size.
At the upper end of the price spectrum ($7 per square foot or more) are many of the more colorful and finished varieties of rubber, as well as those of significant thickness. This includes our Endura line of Commercial flooring tiles, most of our rooftop and playground tiles and Dog Bone Outdoor Paver Tiles.
Cleaning Rubber Flooring
We recommend using a neutral pH floor cleaner for indoor rubber flooring. Use a damp rag or cloth with hot water and the cleaner. You can also sweep and vacuum your indoor flooring. For larger areas, you can use an automated walk-behind or riding floor cleaning device as long as you have appropriate brushes or pads.
Most often, rubber floors are not sealed, but interlocking and rolled rubber tiles can be sealed using a recommended sealer. Sealers provide a clean and more durable wear surface in extremely high traffic areas. Sealing does not, however, require continual cleaning and resealing.
Rubber Floor Installation
Your technique for installing rubber mats will vary depending on the room size, the material, and the space's intended use. For larger commercial installations, we recommend using a glue-down method, especially when installing rolled rubber.
A simple cut-to-fit and dry lay installation can be used with interlocking tiles, making them ideal for home installations and smaller projects. Some playground tiles feature an interlocking installation method.
