Home Gym Floors, Basement Floors, Garage Floors, Exercise Room Flooring, Weight Rooms, Commercial Gym Flooring


represent an extremely popular flooring option for home gyms and weight rooms. These types of floors also work well for weightlifting rooms in schools or small athletic studios.


For any type of weight room workout, the flooring must withstand the rigors of machines and weights. Greatmats offers just the right product with its interlocking square rubber tiles that measure almost 2-by-2 feet individually.

These easy-to-install tiles offer a smooth, no-slip surface with long-term durability, meaning they'll provide a great value over the long term, which explains why they're some of our best-selling rubber products.

Here are the top five reasons to install our 2-by-2-foot interlocking rubber floor tiles.

1. Ease of Installation

The individual tiles weigh a little more than seven pounds, meaning they're easy to handle and install. The design of square mats is easier to install than other rubber flooring options, including rolled rubber flooring.

Additionally, because the tiles fit together tightly with our interlocking system, you'll need no adhesive to install this floor. The dry lay installation of the tiles is an easy process. If you're seeking a wall-to-wall installation, you can use a common utility knife and a sturdy straight edge to cut the interlocking rubber mats at the edges of the walls to fit properly.

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 a type of flooring used for indoor athletics. The 8 mm of thickness equals a durable floor that's beneficial in athletics, providing a bit of forgiveness versus a traditional hard floor. The nearly 2-by-2-foot tile size means one person can carry, place and install the individual tiles relatively easily.

Many of our customers tell us they install this flooring with no help or with help from one person in a short amount of time. Once you gain a feel for the installation process, you can install tile after tile relatively quickly.

We've further simplified installation of these tiles through the design of the interlocking system. Because each tile contains the same interlocking pattern on all four sides, this universal interlocking design means the rubber tiles will lock together, no matter which sides align. This allows the installer to work more quickly versus having to line up each tile in a certain orientation.

Additionally, as long as the subflooring or current floor is hard and even, you can install the Greatmats interlocking tiles directly over your current flooring. This simplifies installation, because you don't have to spend time tearing out current flooring.

Installation of this type of floor requires no adhesive, although you can use it to permanently adhere the rubber mats. You also could use double-sided carpet tape 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 you're going to be placing furniture or heavy exercise equipment on top of the island installation, you won't need adhesive, as the floor won't slip with the equipment on it.

Installation of these tiles works best when performed over a flat floor. An uneven base floor could cause a raising of the seams between the tiles. 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.

2. No-Slip and No-Trip Surface

The individual mats in our system feature tight-fitting seams. This feature works perfectly for a floor designed for athletic use, because those participating in the class or game won't trip over any exposed seams or uneven areas of the floor. Additionally, because the tight seams fit together perfectly, you don't have to worry about debris collecting in the seams.

These tiles offer a commercial grade construction quality, and they feature a no-slip surface. The surface of these tiles has just the right tackiness, meaning you won't have to worry about slipping. These smooth surface of these tiles looks great.

3. Durability of Floor

Those seeking a durable flooring for use with home gyms, basement floors and garages will appreciate the Greatmats interlocking rubber mats. As you can see in the customer reviews at the bottom of the page, many of our customers love having this type of floor in their home workout areas.

For example, if you're installing these interlocking rubber floor tiles for a home gym with free weights, these Greatmats tiles work great because of their 8 mm thickness. Tiles with lesser thickness won't be able to protect the subfloor as well should you drop a small free weight on the floor. If you're using free weights of more than 100 pounds, we'd recommend at least a one-half inch thick floor, though.

These interlocking tiles provide some resistance to various types of chemicals, including alcohol, ammonia, bleach, disinfectant and human sweat. Should any of these substances end up contacting the rubber tiles, clean it up as quickly as possible, and you shouldn't see any physical damage. Additionally, our tough tiles shouldn't experience any color change if they come in contact with any of these chemicals or substances. Be sure not to use them in automotive areas, however, as automotive fluids can break down rubber materials. These Greatmats tiles are partially non-absorbent, which helps them resist odors.

Greatmats is proud that our interlocking rubber mats are made completely in the United States. We offer a five-year limited warranty with our tiles.

4. Versatility in Use Cases

Should you be installing these interlocking rubber mats in a building that you're leasing, your building's owners may not allow you to make permanent changes to the floor. Installing our rubber floor tiles works well as a temporary type of floor.

Or if you will be using heavy equipment in the building that could damage the original floor, our durable rubber mats will protect the original floor. For example, you could install a temporary island floor using the rubber interlocking tiles around an area containing free weights and heavy exercise equipment. The rubber mats when would protect the original floor from small dropped weights or the heavy machinery.

Should you need a type of flooring that helps to dampen noise, our rubber interlocking mats do that as well. 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.

Our Greatmats interlocking rubber floor tiles fit well into multiple types of room designs. You'll find five different colors of tiles available for sale. Our 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. We construct our rubber tiles with a urethane binding agent that limits the odor produced. This makes them an ideal choice in a home basement or garage, which may have limited air flow.

5. Ease of Maintenance

Daily cleaning of the interlocking tiles of the floor works by simply sweeping or vacuuming it. Should you need a more extensive cleaning, you can apply a neutral pH cleaner with hot water on the tiles using a mop.

Additionally, should a tile on the floor become damaged, you can simply swap it out. Interlocking rubber floor tiles are easy to disassemble and move, should they need to relocate.

Our rubber interlocking floor tiles consist of recycled rubber material. This means use of these rubber tiles qualifies for LEED points and reduces environmental concerns.

NOTE: Understand that these rubber mats will expand and contract slightly, depending on whether the tiles receive exposure to varying temperatures, sunlight or humidity. Because of the changes in size of these tiles when exposed to sunlight, it's not recommended to install these tiles outdoors.

Whether you need to install our flooring in a large or small space, these interlocking mats are up to the challenge. All colors are stocked and black is ready to ship the next day via ground service to your door from the Greatmats warehouse in Wisconsin. This product features a minimum order of 30 tiles.

Our 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, you can use our interactive Floor Plan Designer.

For larger commercial rubber gym floors where an interlocking rubber floor tile is needed, we recommend our larger Geneva line of 3-by-3-foot rubber tiles. Additionally, if you need help with calculating the number of tiles required or with making choices on colors, give Greatmats a call!

Greatmats offers these interlocking rubber mats at the most competitive prices available. Please speak with customer service about quantity availability for large installations.

Contests and Promotions

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, one option is to use an Indoor Doubled Sided Carpet Tape in order to hold the tiles flat. Often waiting some time to allow the tiles to relax flat will also work.

Maintenance

Always use Neutral Ph cleaner on rubber flooring. Damp mop with hot water, use two bucks to keep mop clean.

Q & A⌃ Back to top
Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

Are there seams that will collect debris? And what about edging?
The seams are very tight as the tiles are cut using a waterjet cutting machine. The seams will not collect debris. You can use commonly found floor transition strips for the edges where needed.
can it be used outdoors?
No this is for indoor use only, rubber will expand with sunlight and heat.
Can I install this on top of existing carpet?
The 3/8 inch or 1/2 inch thickness is best over carpeting and only if the carpeting is fairly flat already, such as a commercial grade.
Is there a strong odor with this product?
All rubber has some odor level, how strong of a smell is individual. This tile has a lower smell than some rubber tiles as these tiles are not made with sulfur, which tends to produce a higher smell. We suggest requesting a free sample.

Customer Rating:


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.


Seattle, WA

Customer Rating:


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.


Dover, NH

Customer Rating:


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.

ST THOMAS, AE

Customer Rating:


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.


Louisville, KY

Customer Rating:


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.

Spring Branch, TX

Customer Rating:


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.
