Gym interlocking rubber flooring tiles, Outdoor interlocking rubber tiles and mats
Interlocking rubber floor tiles represent an extremely popular flooring option for home gyms and weight rooms. These types of floors also work well for weightlifting rooms in schools, small athletic studios or residential multipurpose spaces.
Interlocking Rubber Floor Tiles
Weight rooms require flooring that will withstand the rigors of machines and free weights. Greatmats offers just the right product with its interlocking rubber floor tiles that measure almost 2-by-2 feet individually.
These easy-to-install DIY interlocking rubber floor tiles offer a smooth, non-slip surface with long-term durability. They'll provide a great value over the long term, which explains why they're some of the best-selling interlock rubber flooring products.
Here are the top five reasons to install Greatmats 2-by-2-foot interlocking rubber floor tiles.
1. Easy DIY Installation Interlocking Rubber Floor Tiles
Size and Weight: The interlocking rubber floor mats weigh a little more than seven pounds each, making them easy to handle and install. The square rubber interlocking tiles are easier to install than other rubber flooring options, including rolled rubber flooring.
The interlocking rubber floor tiles measure exactly 23-by-23 inches in size and offer 8 mm of thickness (roughly 0.31 inches). This size works well for indoor athletic flooring. The 8 mm rubber is durable and provides a bit of forgiveness over a traditional hard floor. The nearly 2-by-2-foot tile size means one person can carry and place the individual tiles with relative ease.
Subfloor requirements: Installation of these rubber tiles works best when performed over a flat floor. An uneven base floor could cause a raising of the seams between the tiles.
As long as the subflooring or current floor is hard and even, you can install the Greatmats interlocking rubber floor tiles directly over the current flooring. There is no need waste time tearing out existing flooring.
Installing the Greatmats interlocking rubber floor tiles over carpeting is possible, but the carpet needs to be flat with a low pile, similar to a commercial grade carpeting.
Determining Number of Tiles Needed: These interlocking rubber flooring tiles feature a tile coverage of 3.67 square feet after interlocking the tiles together. To help calculate the tile count for your room, try Greatmats interactive Floor Plan Designer or give one of Greatmats helpful representatives a call.
For larger commercial rubber gym floors where an interlocking rubber floor tile is needed, Greatmats larger Geneva line of 3-by-3-foot rubber tiles should be considered.
Laying rubber flooring tiles Because the dry lay interlocking rubber tiles fit together tightly, no adhesive is required to install this floor. Each tile contains the same interlocking pattern on all four sides - called a universal interlocking system. This allows rubber tiles will lock together, no matter which sides align, and allows the installer to work more quickly without having to line up each tile in a certain orientation.
Although installation of this type of floor requires no adhesive, it can still be used to permanently adhere the rubber mats. Double-sided carpet tape is a popular choice to adhere the tiles to the subfloor. When creating an island installation of the tiles, for example, adhering them to the subfloor works well to prevent movement of the island. However, if furniture or heavy exercise equipment will be placed on top of the island installation, there's no need for the adhesive, as the floor will be weighted down and won't slip.
These tiles are waterjet cut from a 4 ft wide rolled rubber material that is skived from a cylinder core, which means that some tiles may have a slight curve to the tiles. All of the rubber tiles in a job should be installed with the same side down. If the tiles do not want to lay perfectly flat during initial installation, try using indoor double sided carpet tape in order to hold the tiles flat. Often waiting some time to allow the tiles to relax flat will also work.
Cutting rubber tilesFor a wall-to-wall installation, a common utility knife with a fresh blade and a sturdy straight edge are al that are needed to cut the interlocking rubber mats at the edges or to go around obstacles to fit properly.
Many Greatmats customers install this flooring with no help or with help from one person in a short amount of time - especially once they've gotten a feel for the installation process and have gotten into a rhythm.
2. No Slip, No Trip Interlocking Rubber Floor Tiles
The individual mats in our system feature tight-fitting seams. This feature of interlocking rubber floor tiles for home gym use works perfectly as those participating in the class or game won't trip over any exposed seams or uneven areas of the floor. And since the tight seams fit together perfectly, it eliminates concerns about debris collecting in the seams.
These tiles offer commercial grade construction quality, and they feature a non slip surface with just the right tackiness. Plus, the smooth rubber surface looks great.
3. Durable Rubber Interlocking Floor
Those seeking a durable residential flooring for home gyms, basements and garages will appreciate the Greatmats interlocking rubber tiles. Be sure to read the customer reviews at the bottom of the page to learn why customers love having interlocking rubber floor tiles for home gyms.
When installing these interlocking rubber tiles in a home gym with free weights, 8 mm rubber tiles work great to protect the subfloor should a small free weight be dropped on the floor. For free weights of more than 100 pounds, at least a one-half inch thick rubber floor is recommended.
These rubber tiles provide some resistance to various types of chemicals, including alcohol, ammonia, bleach, disinfectant and human sweat. Should any of these substances end up in the flooring, it's still recommended to clean it up as quickly as possible to prevent damage. These Greatmats tiles are partially non-absorbent, which also helps them resist odors.
Additionally, the tough rubber flooring shouldn't experience any color change if it comes in contact with any of these chemicals or substances. Be sure, however, not to use them in automotive areas, as automotive fluids are known to break down rubber materials.
These interlocking rubber mats are made completely in the United States and carry a five-year limited warranty.
4. Versatility of Interlocking Rubber Floor Tiles
Should the interlocking rubber mats be installed in a building that is being leased, the building's owners may not allow permanent changes to the floor. Installing interlocking rubber tiles works well as a temporary floor.
If heavy equipment is being used in the building that could damage the original floor, the durable rubber floor tiles will also protect the original floor.
Rubber interlocking mats also help to dampen noise. The flooring will absorb noise from materials dropped onto it, as well as absorbing noise from workout machines. This helps prevent the nasty echo of hard open rooms.
Greatmats interlocking rubber floor tiles fit well into multiple types of room designs with five different colors of tiles available for sale. The interlocking rubber mats offer the color combinations of 100 percent black, as well as 10 percent color fleck in tan/brown, blue/light gray, blue, and light gray. For the two-color combined options, each color in the combination makes up 5 percent of the blend. These interlocking tiles are not reversible.
Unlike other types of rubber flooring, Greatmats interlocking rubber tiles produce almost no rubber odor. The interlocking rubber tiles are constructed with a urethane binding agent that limits the odor produced. This makes them an ideal choice in a residential spaces such as home basements or garages, which may have limited air flow.
5. Rubber Interlocking Floor Ease of Maintenance
Daily cleaning of the interlocking tiles works by simply sweeping or vacuuming it. Should a more extensive cleaning be needed, apply a neutral pH cleaner with hot water using a damp mop.
If the floor should become damaged, you can simply swap out the damaged tiles without having to replace the entire floor. Interlocking rubber floor tiles are easy to disassemble and move, should they need to relocate.
These rubber interlocking floor tiles consist of recycled rubber material, qualifying them for LEED points and reducing environmental concerns.

Morton Grove, IL
High quality, but very smelly. We like the look of the mats and how easy they were to install. However, we were completely unaware of the awful smell. The smell permeated our entire house and was pretty unbearable. We've had all our bathroom and kitchen fans running for almost two weeks to get rid of the smell. It is still present and I can't workout in the room yet with this smell. Hoping it will end soon as I didn't see any mention of this by other buyers.
We love our new gym floor. It was very easy to install and it's the perfect floor for our home gym. Looks great, no rubber smell and was just what we were looking for. It is great for typical weight training and aerobic exercises. Perfect cushioning for the feet. We did buy the 8 mil blue and grey speckled on black. We've belonged to gyms and health clubs all our lives and now have set up our home gym to accommodate our needs without leaving home. Should have done this a long time ago. Thank you Eric at Great Mats - It was just a phone call order but I only had four pieces left - we nailed the correct square footage! The delivery was also simple - everything went smoothly. If we ever moved and had to build another home gym we would definitely go with this product again without hesitation.
Great floor. Very nice quality. Easy to install almost all in one day one person. Ordered 130 tiles. Cut some pieces to fit but left any I could un cut so that It is easier to fit in a different space if I move and take it with me. Basement is unfinished so I think the uncut tile look works. The pieces I did cut were fairly easy, just ran box cutter knife over multiple times. Used piece of wood to cut on and a drywall T square ruler. Did extensive research for quality USA made product at good price, Greatmats had the best price for that thickness/quality and best shipping cost. Very nice helpful customer service, I actually called about a different floor lesser quality and was recommended this better quality floor at same cost (or lower I can't remember). Also very helpful regarding shipping options. Would use this company again.
Our Customer very satisfied with delivery and quality.
Fits together nicely!
Excellent quality, heavy mat. Not soft, but perfect to workout on. Easy to install but requires very sharp knife and frequent blade changes.
The tiles are well made, durable, easy to install. They do not move, stay well in place.
I am very happy with them.

easy to install - but you will need a sharp knife.
ST THOMAS, AE
We are using this product to instal in our home gym, in the basement of our house. We did a partial "test installation" of the product, to see what it would look like and how easy it would be to assemble. (We still have to do the full installation.) So far, we are extremely impressed. The tiles look absolutely amazing--we purchased the ones with tan / brown flecks. Previously, we had solid black rubber mats which showed every single foot print, water spot, etc. These markings do not show up as easily on this product. The tiles fit into place together perfectly, and so far, there has been so sign of any "slipping apart" which was a problem I had with my previous gym mats when doing my kettlebell, skipping and leg workouts. Also, there is a pretty good degree of cushioning for my aging knees, and I feel safe working out on these as there is no skidding or slipping.
Once I get the full installation complete, I will upload the pictures--I am confident it will look amazing!
Great product, good value, easy installation.
I had been looking around for some good flooring for a home gym and I came across great mats. the extra $150 to have it shipped to beat the quality you can get at any Lowe's type of store seems well worth it to me now. When I called they were very helpful and it shipped out within a couple of days. The install was very easy and I was able to cut the pieces and lay it within a few hours.
I even mis-measured and was 2 inches off so I had to get an extra 10 pieces shipped which they went ahead and did a special order for me and got them out the next day.

great product. easy to install. can barely see the seams.
Spring Branch, TX
We purchased this for our basement gym. We installed Barricade over the concrete (insulated underlayment) and put the rubber tiles on top. It turned out great. The product is better than expected. There's some slight odor, but it's dissipating nicely. We would use this again. Also, we found Great Mats really nice to work with - very helpful on the phone; fast shipping.
