3x3 Rubber Mat Options

When looking for a type of flooring that provides equal parts of durability, anti fatigue properties, and a sure footing in damp conditions, trust the 3x3 rubber floor tiles from Greatmats.

We offer a wide variety of these 36x36 inch mats, allowing customers to create a custom installation that will fit a multitude of potential use cases. Customers can use these mats in a gym, an industrial location, a restaurant kitchen, a horse barn, and many other areas.

Size and Shape Options

These 3x3 rubber floor tiles all will have a squarish shape. Some of the mats will make use of flat edges or beveled edges, creating a mat designed for a standalone installation. This is a common use case when the customer desires the anti fatigue benefits of rubber while standing and working.

Other designs of these mats will involve an interlocking edge. Installers can connect adjacent mats by lining up the edges of two mats and then pressing them together.

When selecting a mat with an interlocking, puzzle style edge, you may not receive the full 9 square feet of coverage space that you would expect from the 3x3 rubber floor tiles. You may need some help from our customer service team to figure out the actual coverage space you are receiving from the interlocked tiles.

To avoid having to deal with an excessive amount of weight in these tiles, many of them will have a thin design. Thickness measurements of 1/4 inches, 8mm (about 5/16 inches), 3/8 inches, 1/2 inches, and 5/8 inches are common.

Material Options

Our 3x3 foot rubber floor tiles often consist of recycled rubber. Some models of tiles for sale will have 100% recycled rubber, while others will be about 50% recycled rubber.

These mats frequently will consist of recycled tires, although some tiles use leftover rubber materials from the manufacturing of rolls of rubber flooring.

Some of the tiles that carry a higher cost may make use of virgin EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber, along with recycled rubber tires.

By using recycled tires in this rubber flooring, the manufacturer helps to keep these materials out of the landfill and to give them a new life.

Pattern and Texture Options

These 3x3 rubber floor tiles have a naturally grippy surface, which allows them to create a sure footing for people walking across them in wet conditions. For additional texture and traction, some manufacturers will use a raised pattern or a gritty material on the surface.

A common pattern in these tiles will involve using a perforated design. With holes that extend through the entire thickness of the rubber material, spilled liquids and powders in a shop or kitchen will drain through to the subfloor, keeping the top of the mats safer and cleaner.

The majority of these mats will use a black base color. Some manufacturers add random colored flecks to the black to create a more interesting design. A few models will use greens, tans, blues, grays, and other colors as the base. They also may have color flecks added to them for a luxury design.

Common Use Options

Thicker 3x3 rubber floor tiles will frequently appear in a gym or in another location where heavy items may fall to the floor. The rubber protects the subfloor from damage, while also cutting down on noise generation in a weightlifting area.

Gyms that are offering spin classes or treadmills can use these rubber tiles underneath the machines. The workout machines will not slip around on the grippy rubber, and they will create less noise versus using them over a tile floor.

The perforated mats are popular in areas where liquid spills are common, such as in a commercial kitchen, on a factory line, or at a dishwashing station. Some people may install the perforated tiles in a wash bay in a horse barn, creating a safe place for handlers and animals to walk, even when the tiles are wet.

Installation Options

Customers do not need any specific experience with installing rubber flooring to make use of these 3-by-3-foot tiles. The interlocked tiles will simply pop together with a little pressure. They should not need glue added to the interlocking edges the majority of the time.

Some installers choose to dry lay these tiles, rather than gluing them to the subfloor. This makes it easier to pick up the tiles and to return to the subfloor in the future. The weight of rubber tiling often will hold it in place without adhesive.

Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements

Many of these tiles will carry a warranty of at least 5 years, as the material is highly durable. Customers do not need to perform any special maintenance techniques to keep the tiles in prime condition.

To clean the tiles, remove dry debris with a push broom, a vacuum, or a leaf blower. For a wet cleaning, rinse the tiles with a garden hose and sprayer or use a power washer. You also can add a neutral pH cleaner to a bucket of warm water and then apply it with a mop for a more thorough cleaning than water alone.
