ShokLok Tiles are a revolutionary new rubber flooring solution for home gyms, basement floors and weight rooms.
Made in the USA of recycled rubber material, the heavy-duty tiles reduce noise and vibration while providing excellent thermal insulation and impact absorption.
Installation of the interlocking gym floor tiles is easy.
If you’ve got corner tiles, start with one of those. Work your way out evenly from the corner aligning border tiles on the outside edges and center tiles in the middle.
The tiles push together like heavy duty puzzle pieces.
Should you need to trim a tile for a wall-to-wall installation, you’ll need a sharp utility knife, straight edge, tape measure, pen and a 2x4 board.
Measure the distance between the already laid floor and the wall. Mark that distance - minus a ⅛ to ¼ inch gap for expansion - on your tile.
Slide your 2x4 under the tile running parallel with the direct you’ll be cutting. Using your sharp utility knife, make a series of shallow scores until you’ve cut completely through the tile.
The 2x4 combined with the weight of the rubber will open the score, reducing friction with your blade.
Push the cut tiles into place and you’re finished. Clean the tiles using a damp mop and neutral pH cleaner.
Enjoy your new ShokLok Tile Rubber Gym Floor!
