Greatmats offers customized rubber to fit any need with its extensive variety of installation types, sizes, thicknesses and color choices. Rubber is one of the most popular gym flooring materials, as it is relatively inexpensive and extremely durable. Strong enough to support heavy traffic and exercise equipment, such as treadmills and weight training equipment, rubber gym flooring's versatility is perfect for multipurpose athletic floors. To top it off, most of our rubber gym flooring is made from recycled rubber, making it an environmentally-friendly and renewable gym flooring option.

Cross fitness gym flooring
Many commercial gyms that focus on the rapidly-growing CrossFit training methods are requiring rubber gym flooring due to its ability to withstand repeated dropping of heavy weights such as dumbbells, barbells or kettle bells. The flooring also provides excellent slip resistance and thermal insulation.

While usually not noticeably cushioning, the rubber material also serves to lessen the stresses and impact on the human body during intense workouts, especially during jumps. As a firm material, cross fitness athletes and competitors will not lose output during heavy lifts due to cushioning.

Our rubber gym flooring mats are ideal for cross fitness training as they are extremely durable and will absorb the shock of dropped weights without damaging the floor beneath. This is especially true of our 1/2 inch and thicker mats. With interlocking versions of rubber gym flooring, you can be sure the mats will not shift, no matter how intense the action is on top of them.

For burpees, push-ups, handstands and any other exercise where your skin may come in contact with the flooring, you'll want to try out one of our many smooth surfaced rolled rubber gym flooring options. Many of our rubber gym flooring rolls also have less rubber odor than traditional 4x6 horse stall mats. Rolled rubber floors can also be installed in layers if greater thickness is desired. This will help protect your concrete subfloor from becoming damaged during olympic lifts where heavy weights are being dropped from waist height and above.

Composition of rubber flooring
The black portion of rubber gym flooring is made from recycled rubber, most often ground truck tires. The color flecks in rubber tiles and rolls are ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) -- a synthetic rubber. Natural rubber gym mats include white flecks randomly appearing throughout the material.

Rolled rubber is offered in standard black, natural, various color flecked and confetti options. Confetti is created when the scraps from colored rolls are reground into the material creating a random mix of colors that can appear anywhere in the product.

Rubber Floor Tiles are available in the full range of color percentages, but are most often black or mostly black. Rubber Mats are generally just black.

Rubber Gym Flooring Thickness
The most popular thickness of rubber flooring for gyms is 3/8 inch. However, the slightly thinner 8 mm (approximately .32 inch) option is gaining in popularity. These choices are the ideal size for home gym floors and commercial facilities where heavy weights are not dropped. The 8 mm option is thick enough to accommodate heavy static equipment and is less expensive than thicker rubber flooring options.

For free weight areas and on heavily-used high school gym floors, 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch thick material provides better protection for the flooring underneath the rubber gym floor mats. This rubber thickness provides the best shock absorption to protect both the weights and the floor beneath the rubber surface. Keep in mind that the more often and more weight that is dropped, the greater rubber thickness you'll need to ensure proper protection. This form of usage is also much harder on the rubber than other exercise and may shorten its lifespan. Most rubber gym flooring is guaranteed for at least 5 years but has an expected lifespan of more than a decade and can last multiple decades.

Rubber Gym Flooring Types
Whether a mat, roll or tile, each type brings unique benefits. Rubber mats, most commonly 4 feet by 6 feet in size, are typically more affordable than interlocking tiles of the same material. Interlocking tiles are easy to install, reduce open seams and also come in foam material. Rubber floor tiles come with either interlocking or straight edges. Rubber is the primary material for rolls, however, foam underlay rolls are also available. Modular floor tiles are offered in vinyl top and PVC.

Gym Flooring Tiles
Interlocking rubber tiles are available from 1/4 inch to 3/4 inch thickness in all black and color fleck options up to 90 percent color. Non-interlocking rubber floor tiles are available in 1 inch and 1.25 inch thickness in all black and full color options.

Popular and affordable, the 4 feet by 6 feet by 3/4 inch Punter Top rubber tiles are designed for installations that need a durable interlocking system with good ventilation for larger installations. These interlocking tiles insulate against cold and damp conditions. They also serve as a noise buffer. Made from 100% recycled rubber, this flooring option is a great fit for crossfit gym floors.

Greatmats' 1 inch thick DuraMax gym floor tiles are available in all black. These 2 feet by 2 feet rubber floor tiles simply push together for easy and effective home or professional flooring installations. They are durable and provide the cushion and protection needed for all free weights. The DuraMax gym floor tiles stand up to any type of exercise equipment and are affordable at less than $4 per square foot. Heavy weights can be dropped on this rubber flooring without deterioration of the tile.

Interlocking gym flooring tiles provide the easiest installation of all rubber flooring. With conviently sized square tiles, this drastically limits the weight factor of the installation process. The tiles push together easily and hold tightly together to ensure a safe and easy to clean flooring surface. The also offer the opportunity for greater thickness than rolled rubber, if that is your desire.

Rubber roll gym flooring
Rubber rolls are 4 feet wide and are available in nearly any length of at least 10 feet. They are less expensive than interlocking rubber tiles. Rolls of rubber are available in 1/4 inch, 8 mm, 3/8 inch and 1/2 inch thicknesses. For small workout areas, we offer our 4 feet by 10 feet gym floor mats, available in 1/4 inch thick rubber for treadmills and other equipment as well as 8 mm-thick plyometric rubber. Both 4 feet by 10 feet rubber flooring options are available with free shipping directly to your door via ground shipping.
Plyometric rubber gym floor mats are soft and provides greater cushion than standard rolled rubber flooring while providing proper support for aerobic floor exercises and repetitive movements. Plyometric rubber rolls are offered in any length needed to accommodate larger fitness rooms.

One major advantage to rolled rubber gym flooring is the fact that it drastically limits the number of seams in your gym. This is especially helpful in large areas.

Rubber Gym Mats
Greatmats offers 4x6 foot rubber gym mats in 3/8 inch, 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch thicknesses. These gym floor mats are economical and easy to install. Color options are primarily black and are offered in natural color as well. Some of these gym mats may have more of a rubber smell than others, depending on the manufacturing process.

Straight edged rubber mats are great for small, isolated areas where extra floor protection is needed. These mats provide a great way to reinforce areas when weights may be dropped. Should you need to cover a larger area, the mats can be butted next to each other, but they will not lock together and may separate if not properly installed.

Alternatives to rubber gym floors
With flooring material options that include dense rubber, soft foam, durable polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and multifunctional carpet tiles, Greatmats has you covered in all flooring environments. Rubber is the heaviest choice while foam tiles are lightweight and ideal for multipurpose floors. In addition to durability, PVC provides strong cushioning. Carpet tiles should be limited to use with stationary exercise equipment in gym flooring environments.

PVC StayLock tiles are a great gym alternative to rubber flooring, providing excellent cushioning and versatility for a variety of activities, such as aerobics and weight training. Available in bump top and orange peel designs, StayLock floor tiles are waterproof, making them a solid option for damp basements that may have occasional water problems. These tiles offer the benefits of high end ergonomic flooring and give you more options for colors and pattern designs in your gym floor.

PVC floor tiles provide ideal durability and cushioning for aerobic activities and can be installed over carpeting. Both vinyl tiles and modular PVC floor tiles are made from waterproof material and feature a raised-base structure that will allow moisture to flow under the tiles. Greatmats' modular vinyl-topped snap-together tiles offer a sleek wood grain or stone look and make for a long-lasting, finished flooring surface.

Pebble Gym Floor Mats for home gyms are lightweight, very durable and easy to install. They are designed for home use under exercise equipment and can be easily moved and re-installed as needed. These high density ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam floor mats can support heavy equipment such as weight benches or elliptical machines, but the equipment may leave indentations in the foam. Lead and latex free, pebble gym mats are also waterproof and easy to clean.

A great fit for basement floors, kids rooms, martial arts, home exercise rooms and floor exercises, foam tiles offer a softer surface than rubber flooring. Foam tiles range from 1/2 inch to 1-5/8 inch thick and are offered in a variety of colors and styles. Foam gym tiles are affordable, easy to install and can ship via ground service.

Greatmats' gym flooring can be purchased in a array of color choices which vary by product. Rubber products for gyms can be all black or black with color flecks. Interlocking tiles are available in standard black and, depending on tile size, a variety of color fleck options. Foam tiles and PVC modular tiles are available in a assortment of solid colors that can be mixed and matched to create a unique, creative design. Carpet tiles are offered in a wide range of colors as well to ensure you one that fits your room.

Installation and Care
Installation of our flooring can be accomplished by the home or commercial end user in most cases. Interlocking tiles do not require any glue. Rolled rubber can be dry laid, however, a glue- or tape-down installation is recommended -- especially for installations covering more than 400 square feet and in commercial settings where the gym floor will be used with more frequency. Modular and snap-together plastic gym floor tiles will sometimes need an underlayment as an added cushion from hard, concrete floors. Flooring material of all types for gyms can be cut to fit using a sharp utility knife.

Cleaning of gym floors is similar to other types of flooring. Always use a neutral pH floor cleaner for rubber surfaces. Foam gym floor mats can be cleaned using common household floor cleaners. Whether you have foam or rubber flooring, it is important to keep the floors clean and free of dirt and soil to ensure a long life span of your gym floor.
