The Greatmats Rubber Tile Diamond 2x2 Ft 1/2 Inch Black product is an excellent option for creating a durable home gym floor that's also easy to install. You can use our rubber home gym flooring tile in any area where you want a finished look to your gym floor or where you need to protect the sub-floor from any potential damage.
Our 2x2 black rubber tile is an extremely tough product, offering the highest possible quality for rubber flooring on the market. Because of the puzzle edges on this 1/2 inch home rubber tile, it's easy to install. And should you ever need to disassemble the tile and return to the original flooring, that's also an easy process, as you do not need any adhesive to put together these tiles.
People love using our rubber home gym flooring tile product because of its sturdy build quality. Rubber flooring will stand up to all kinds of different uses, making it a versatile selection too.
Our 2x2 black rubber tile is an excellent option for using in a home, in a professional athletic studio, or in a school. Essentially, anywhere you need a tough style of flooring that will stand up to having a lot of weight placed on top of it is a good option for this 1/2 inch home rubber tile.
Rubber tile is a perfect solution for weight room settings. Dropping heavy weights on a typical floor can cause damage to the floor in a hurry. Even hand weights can damage a typical floor.
However, a thick rubber flooring will absorb the impact of the weight without concern for the integrity of the sub-floor. Our 0.5-inch thick rubber flooring will be able to stand up to a lot of different styles and capacities of weights, making it versatile. For those who are powerlifters with exceptionally heavy weights though, you may want to look into using one of the thicker rubber flooring options from Greatmats, such as a 0.75-inch thick product.
You also can use rubber tile to create a durable rubber black 2x2ft 1/2 inch tile flooring in a workshop. This rubber flooring will stand up to having wood dropped on it or to having extremely heavy power tools stored on top of the flooring.
Rubber flooring provides a nice uniform look to your floor too, which can be important in a gym studio or in a school setting, where visitors or potential gym members will see the floor.
You can purchase our Rubber Tile Diamond 2x2 Ft 1/2 Inch Black product in pre-sized kits for a simple installation in a particular room size. With a kit, you also have the option of having beveled edges on two sides of your kit, which means an installation with no cutting, while maintaining a finished look in this tile.
The beveled edges represent a handy feature when you're building a rubber floor that is not the entire size of the room, and when you want to push the installation of the interlocking home rubber floor tiles into a corner of your room. The outer edges of the tiles would then be beveled.
Please note that with kits or with multiple component piece installations, the grain of the surface pattern will not all run in the same direction. If you'd like more information about the ordering options for our 2x2 black rubber tile kits, please contact the Greatmats customer service team.
The installation of the Greatmats rubber home gym flooring tile isn't a challenging process like you'll find with some other flooring options. You'll just line up the tabs on the edge of one tile with the slots on the edge of an adjacent tile. Then use your feet, hands, or a rubber mallet to press the tiles together. No adhesive is required.
When trying to calculate the coverage size you'll receive with our 1/2 inch home rubber tile, understand that the puzzle edges on each piece will cause some interlocking coverage area loss. Each of these 2x2 black rubber tile pieces has a coverage area of 3.5 square feet, meaning you'lllose about 0.5 square feet to the interlocking design. Just call with your flooring measurements, and the Greatmats customer service team can help you calculate how many rubber home gym flooring tile pieces you'll need to complete your installation.
Each individual tile measures 2 by 2 feet and weighs 15 pounds, which will be difficult for some people to handle on their own. The installation process probably will go smoother if you have more than one person involved, as it will be easier to line up the interlocking edges of the adjacent tiles when more than one person is involved. Should you need a similar form of rubber tile that weighs less to allow for an easier installation, we offer 3/8-inch thick tiles too.
If you need to cut these 2x2 black rubber tile pieces to make them fit in a certain size of room, you'll need a utility knife and a straight edge. The easiest cutting process involves deeply scoring the tile and then laying it over the top of a 2x4 piece of wood. This should cause the tile to pull open along the score line, allowing you to finish cutting through the rubber.
High Quality Material
Our 2x2 black rubber tile is non-absorbent, meaning you can use it in areas where it could become wet. You also can use a mop to wipe down the rubber flooring when you need a thorough cleaning option. The diamond surface texture on the top of this rubber flooring tile is very easy to clean. Always use a neutral pH cleaner on rubber flooring material. Soap is usually not the best product to use when cleaning the mats as it can leave behind a residue on the black surface.
The 1/2 inch home rubber tile is a Made in the USA product that carries a 5-year limited manufacturer's warranty, meaning you can count on its long lasting properties. It also has a Shore A 62 material density rating, yielding an extremely tough and firm product.
The surface of this rubber flooring has a diamond pattern, which is extremely subtle to the eye. However, it does provide a nice level of traction for those using the tiles, ensuring that the surface won't become slippery if the rubber tile becomes wet.
The interlocking rubber home gym flooring tile pieces are individually water jet cut, which yields an exact and very tight fitting installation. These 1/2 inch home rubber tile pieces have a thickness tolerance of plus or minus 0.040 inches.
This is important, as rubber home gym flooring tile that has thin or thick spots could lead to a failure of the tile when it's placed under stress. Without a tight tolerance in the thickness measurement of the 2x2 black rubber tile, it could break or fold when placed under a lot of weight, which could happen regularly when using this flooring in a home weight room. Cheaper types of rubber flooring are more likely to have thin spots, but this is not a problem with the Greatmats Rubber Tile Diamond 2x2 Ft 1/2 Inch Black product.
Should any portion of the sub-floor beneath the rubber home gym flooring tile installation have a significant indention, specifically designed plastic shims that fit into the interlocking design of this tile are provided with these rubber tiles to ensure a level flooring.
Things to Remember
We do not recommend using this 1/2 inch home rubber tile for an installation outdoors. These tiles are not UV treated, meaning they will not stand up well to direct sunlight. These tiles also are not reversible. Should the surface of a single tile become damaged, you should just pull that tile out of the flooring and replace it with a new tile.
This product does have a rubber smell that is a bit stronger than other rubber gym flooring products. We do not recommend this 1/2 inch home rubber tile product to customers with a high sensitivity to smell. Additionally, do not install this product in a room that is small with very little air movement. Some of our customers suggest that the rubber smell of these tiles is somewhat like a new car smell.
In most instances, the smell will dissipate over several weeks. You sometimes can speed up the fading of the rubber smell by introducing additional air flow into the area with electric fans and by mopping the floor multiple times with a neutral pH cleaner.
You may notice in the product photos above some slight color variations in this all black rubber home gym flooring tile. This is what we refer to as shading or shadowing. It is a common issue found in recycled rubber products. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to solve this problem with this particular type of product. You can try cleaning the tiles with a solution called Simple Green and a rotary brush to see if it eliminates some of the sheen.
Understand that these imperfections usually are not as noticeable once the customer places all of the equipment and weights in the room.
Always use a neutral Ph cleaner on rubber flooring material.Shipping

Q & A⌃ Back to top
It is as good as I expected. It does not cut easily. a reciprocating saw does not cut straight and a circular saw will melt the rubber filling your house with smoke and a burnt rubber smell.
