What Are Some of the Best Options for Rubber Fitness Floor Mats?
The Pacific Rolled Rubber is one of the most cost effective options when creating a workout space at home, delivering a price of a little more than $1 per square foot. This roll has a black base color. Some rolls contain color fleck options, giving customers an option for changing up the look of the flooring.
Installers appreciate the 1/8 inches of thickness (about 3 mm) in this rubber roll, as the thin design reduces the weight of the roll. At 4 feet in width, the roll weighs 0.75 pounds per linear foot. This product has a custom cut length option, so customers can order the perfect length to match the requirements for the workout space.
For a little more thickness that works for plyometric workouts, such as lateral box jumping and other jumps on the floor, consider the 8 mm Plyometric Rubber Roll Sport Natural (about 5/16 inch of thickness). This product costs about $1.50 per square foot of coverage.
For those who need more thickness, yielding a heavy duty, yet forgiving type of rubber flooring roll, the 10 mm Plyometric Rubber Roll Sport Natural delivers an economical flooring, measuring about 13/32 inches in thickness for less than $2 per square foot of coverage.
Each of these rolls consists of recycled rubber, which makes them ideal for customers looking for a green product. This rubber has just the right amount of cushioning for a workout space at the house or at a studio, while keeping the overall weight of the product at a minimum, which simplifies installation.
Customers can order these products by a custom linear foot, and each roll of these fitness floor mats measures 4 feet in width (regardless of the thickness). Customers must make a minimum order of 15 linear feet.
Does Foam Work as Inexpensive Fitness Floor Mats?Foam is another excellent choice for fitness floor mats at a low price. It has a lightweight design in tiles that interlock, which greatly simplifies the installation process. Foam has a high level of cushioning, which means the workout is easy on the lower joints of the athlete.
Some installers prefer foam when performing a wall-to-wall installation in a room, as foam is extremely easy to cut with a straight edge, allowing installers to create the perfect fit in the flooring.
The Pebble Foam Tile includes a slight texture in the top layer in a round pebble shape, which gives athletes a sure footing as they perform the workout. This model costs less than $2 per square foot.
These tiles measure 1/2 inch in thickness, so they provide quite a bit more cushioning versus thinner foam tiles. They use a non-slip thatch texture surface to provide the ideal level of footing for athletes.
