Are Recycled Tire Mats Good For Outdoor Use?

By Paige Cerulli Created: March, 2022

Recycled tire mats are an eco-friendly, highly durable and versatile product. They’re an excellent choice for many different applications, but if you’re planning to put them outside, it’s important to make sure you choose a mat that’s right for that use.

Can You Use Recycled Tire Mats Outside?

The short answer is, it depends. Some recycled tire mats are ideal for outdoor use, while others should really only be used indoors.

The material that’s gathered from recycled automotive tires is resistant to nearly all weather conditions. There are many recycled tire mats and tiles that are designed for outdoor use as door mats or on playgrounds or rooftops.



But there are also some recycled tire mats that are designed for indoor use. If you put these mats outdoors, you may find that their color fades and water may permeate into the material. If the water then freezes, you could damage the mat.

As a result, it’s best to look for recycled tire mats designed specifically for outdoor use.
