By Lisa Hobbie Created: March, 2021 - Modified: February, 2024

If you are shopping for protective flooring, rubber mats are among the best in terms of quality, durability, and versatility. Expect to pay roughly $2 to $4 per square foot for rubber mats, depending on thickness and construction quality. For 4x6 rubber mats, which are the most common size, expect to pay roughly $50 to $100 per mat.

Barn 4x6 rubber stall mats, 4x6 rubber gym mats, and other 4x6 rubber mats provide excellent impact absorption while also being water resistant. Once rubber flooring is installed, it requires little-to-no maintenance, only requiring a sweeping, vacuuming, or damp mop cleaning process, as needed. Rubber mats are also insect, stain, mold, and mildew resistant.

There are many different types of 4x6 rubber mats for sale, and knowing which type of mat you need and how many mats you need depends on the purpose they will serve. Understanding how much mats cost will also depend on those factors.

Greatmats offers a wide variety of 4x6 rubber stall mats and 4x6 rubber gym mats of varying thicknesses and styles. Here is a snapshot of some of the most popular choices, including their cost, warranty information, and suitable uses and applications for each:

How Many 4x6 Rubber Stall Mats Do You Need For A 10x10 Space?

Most horses will be comfortable in a 10x10 horse stall. This size of stall provides a safe, controlled space that can keep a horse out of the weather elements, and it can also keep the animal’s movement limited to allow it to heal from an injury. If outfitted with 4x6 rubber stall mats, it can even keep your horse cleaner and more comfortable.

In thinking about a 10x10 foot horse show or stall space, you may be wondering how many 4x6 rubber stall mats you should supply for the floor. To cover a 100-square-foot space, you would need four full mats and another partial mat that will need to be custom-cut. So plan on purchasing five pieces to cover a 10x10 space.

Use in a Gymnasium: How Much Do 4x6 Rubber Gym Mats Weigh?

Most 4x6 rubber gym mats are relatively heavy, especially in comparison to foam and most thin flooring materials. Typically, if rubber mats made for gymnasiums are 1/2 inch thick, they weigh roughly 3 pounds per square foot. If they are 3/4 inch thick, they typically weigh about 4 pounds per square foot. The weight of a rubber mat is an attractive feature, as once installed or put in place, it doesn’t move around easily. This is key in a gymnasium, where the flooring may be placed under stress. Our 4x6 rubber gym mats are also durable and robust, and their weight helps them to endure heavy use and abuse.
