How Do You Connect Turf To Gym Flooring?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: July, 2021 - Modified: August, 2021

Connecting gym turf to existing gym flooring doesn’t have to be a strenuous job, especially when you purchase one of the turf products from Greatmats.

The key to a successful gym turf installation is preparation. It’s a good idea to allow for a 24 hour relaxation period before gluing down turf, just to prevent any shrinkage or expansion after it’s installed. Check the turf over to make sure the color, texture, and style are consistent throughout. Then, make sure the subsurface is clean, free of cracks and holes, dry, and level.

When it comes to laying the actual turf, it’s often recommended to start in the middle of the room using a chalk line. Butt turf together square at the center line. Then, place some weight starting 7 feet off of the center line in both directions. Use glue or adhesive as approved by the manufacturer of the product, and follow instructions for seams, line painting, and edging.

If only part of your gym uses turf and you want to transition from turf to rubber flooring in an adjacent area. It’s as simple as butting the rubber rolls, tiles or mats up to the turf. There is no need to adhere the rubber to the turf.

Now that you know how easy it is to connect turf to gym flooring, you may be wondering which turf products are the best. When you purchase gym turf from Greatmats, not only will you find it to be relatively easy to connect to gym flooring, but once in place, it will also look fabulous and perform extremely well.
