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. We offer 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 our 2-by-2-foot interlocking rubber floor tiles.
1. Easy DIY Installation Interlocking Rubber Mats
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 our interlocking rubber floor tiles directly over the current flooring. There is no need waste time tearing out existing flooring.
Installing our 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 our interactive Floor Plan Designer or give one of our helpful representatives a call.
For larger commercial rubber gym floors where an interlocking rubber floor tile is needed, our 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 all that are needed to cut the interlocking rubber mats at the edges or to go around obstacles to fit properly.
Many 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 Floors
Those seeking a durable residential flooring for home gyms, basements and garages will appreciate our 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 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.

The interlocking rubber mats offer the color combinations of 100 percent black, as well as 10 percent color fleck in 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. These tiles are also available in Black with 10% Tan/Brown color flec. Contact our customer service team with any questions.

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.

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.
