Vinyl and Carpet Protective Gym Floor Covering
Displaying 1-42 of 42 Products

Protective are available in two different designs: roll out sheet vinyl and large carpet tiles. Both options are simple to use and install, and either type of protective gym floor covering will do a great job of preventing damage or wear and tear to your hardwood gym floor. School gym floor covers are designed for use in high schools, universities, and institutional applications. Vinyl covers are typically much faster to install, while carpet tiles will offer more comfort for your gymnasium event.

The Benefits of Gym Floor Covers

Why use gym floor covers? In short, because you can't afford not to.
- Hardwood gym floors are expensive. Gym floor coverings can help to prolong the life of your hardwood floor.
- Gym floor covers increase the versatility of your gym, allowing you to use the space for awards ceremonies, graduations, parties, and more - without risking the damage of hard heels, black soled shoes, or spilled drinks.
- Covers help to keep your gym looking great, ensuring a professional appearance for the games and rehearsals that matter the most.
- Covers create a buffer between shoe traffic and your floor, preserving the floor's integrity and lifespan, even during multiple heavy traffic events.

Gym floor covers pay for themselves in terms of the protection they offer your hardwood floor, and the number of gym floor resurface treatments that they can help you avoid.

The Basics About Gym Floor Protection

Hardwood gymnasium floors cost tens of thousands of dollars, and we ask a lot of them. Not only do gyms serve for practices, games, and pep rallies, but in most schools, they also serve as multi-purpose spaces. Gyms may used for ceremonies, graduations, fundraising events, parties, proms, and more - but they weren't designed for such events. Shoe scuffs, scratches, and damage from spilled drinks are a few of the hazards that we expose gyms to.

A gym floor cover protects the important flooring investment, while increasing the versatility of any gym. It's an essential investment for a school, university, or public gym which must serve double-duty. Most of our school gym floor coverings are available for under $1 per square foot, making them a worthwhile and relatively inexpensive investment that will save your facility money in the end.

Investing in a floor cover can bring in extra money to a school, too. With a more versatile gym space, you can safely rent it out for community events without worrying about the wear and tear on your sports flooring. Additionally, by being able to hold your own events in the gym, you can save on rental fees for outside venues. Floor covers keep your gym floors looking great, longer, meaning you'll have to resurface them less often, and you'll save money on their upkeep.

Gym floor covering is available in both vinyl sheets and carpet tiles. We'll explore the both options below to help you decide on the product that is right for your gym.

Vinyl Gym Floor Covers

Benefits of vinyl gym floor covers:
- Large sheets are easy to roll out and install
- Installation across an entire gym takes 2 people about 30 minutes
- Vinyl covers are available in various thicknesses and widths
- Cleaning is easy; a quick mopping will have the cover looking great
- Multiple colors are available, so you can easily coordinate with your school's or team's colors
- Cover floor runners provide coverage for smaller high-traffic areas without the necessity of a full gym cover installation

Vinyl gym floor covers are available in several thicknesses and in various color options. A convenient protective vinyl roll out application makes covering your large gym floor a simple process. Vinyl floor covers can be stored on convenient hanging racks, making rolling out and installing the covers easy. Our Self Cleaning Brush Attachment is another practical investment that sweeps each floor cover section as it is rolled up, saving you valuable time and keeping your covers looking great.

We offer 10- and 12-foot wide vinyl sheet rolled flooring covers that quickly and easily roll out to protect your floor. For an average gym size, two people should easily be able to install this cover in 30 minutes. For larger areas, rolls of gym floor covering can be as long as 100 feet. Cleaning vinyl covers requires only a quick mopping.

Various vinyl thicknesses are available, ranging from 10 to 32 ounces. The thickness you choose for your installation should depend on the number of times you will be using your cover. (See product page for more information.) Fifteen different colors are available, so you should have no trouble finding the color that reflects your school spirit. Racks can be easily closeted or tucked away, making them convenient and unobtrusive.

Vinyl floor covers should be taped down.

You may also want to consider our floor cover runners. These smaller runners are available in 4- or 5-foot widths, and in 50-foot lengths. Made of 32 ounce vinyl, these runners are ideal for use along the sidelines, or other areas that receive heavy traffic. You can roll them out for use with reception lines or banquet halls to give your floor that extra protection without taking the time required to completely cover your gym floor.

Carpet Tile Covers

Benefits of Carpet Tile Covers:
- Tiles are easy to handle and can be stored on carts for simplified installation and removal
- Non-slip backing eliminates the need for adhesives, saving you time
- Tiles provide excellent traction, contributing to the safety of every event
- SoftTuff Gym Floor Protect is high-heel proof, offering additional protection for formal events

Protective carpet tiles measure 1x2 meters across and 6mm thick. These tiles can be stored on carts to help simplify installation and transportation. Carpet tiles feature a non-slip backing that eliminates the need for adhesives for installation, saving you time on installation.

Unlike vinyl, carpet will not tear or bunch even under strenuous situations. Carpet top gym floor tiles provide excellent traction, ensuring safety during every event. These large carpet tiles are available in blue or gray colors and carry a three-year limited warranty.

The American-made 1x2 meter carpet tiles are easily installed and stored as well. Carts are available for tile storage so you can wheel them where you need them rather than having to carry them from one end of the gym to the other for installation and/or breakdown of your protective floor cover. To clean the carpet tiles, just vacuum the tiles and you're done. It's that simple.

We also offer a product called SoftTuff Gym Floor Protect which is a 3 1/3-foot square high density fiber interlocking floor tile that is high heel-proof. The tiles are reversible with black on one side and gray on the other. Each tile is 3/16-inch thick and weighs 3.3 pounds. These tiles may be a sound investment if you plan on hosting multiple formal events in your gym space.


Gym floor covers ship via freight delivery for commercial locations. Installation of gym floor protection is most often handled by on-staff personnel.
