Rubber Backed Vinyl Rolls and Turf Tiles

Rubber backed flooring from Greatmats provides a little bit of cushioning for athletic workouts. But it also delivers some noise reduction, as the rubber helps to absorb noise, rather than allowing it to echo.


The rubber backing on the floor works nicely for ensuring that the flooring remains in place without the need for glue. The rubber material provides some grip against the subfloor, meaning that it shouldn’t slide around, even without using adhesive.

Size and Shape Options


With our rubber backed flooring, a number of product formats are available.

To cover a large space, consider selecting rolls of flooring. The flexibility of a rubber backing layer ensures that the flooring works nicely in a roll format. Rolls often measure 6 feet in width and between 25 and 35 feet in length.

Full-size mats with straight edges are also available with this style of flooring. Coverage sizes for the rectangular mats typically range from 2 to 3 feet in width and 3 to 20 feet in length. You may even be able to order custom sizes of mats.

Finally, rubber backed tiles are available. The tiles may have a straight edge or a puzzle-style edge. A common size for square-shaped tiles is 2 by 2 feet, while rectangular-shaped tiles may have sizes of about 2 by 4 feet.

Material Options


Although the back layer on all these types of flooring will be rubber, we offer a variety of options for the top visible layer of the flooring.

In a workout facility or gym, a top layer of artificial turf is a common use case for rubber backed flooring. The turf is available in tiles and rolls, depending on the coverage area requirements.

For athletic facilities that want to simulate a wood floor with the cushioning, we offer vinyl rolls with a rubber backing that look like planks of hardwood.

Another top layer material that is popular involves carpeting. The carpet mats with rubber backing work nicely on a laminate or concrete floor, ensuring the mats will not slide around, thanks to the grippy rubber.

Pattern and Texture Options


When selecting rubber backed flooring with a carpet top mat, you will have a range of options to pick from in textures and patterns.

Most of the carpet mat surfaces will have a rough texture, making them ideal to use at an entrance to a building. People can scrape moisture and dirt onto the carpet, rather than tracking it into the building. Waffle pattern textures are common in this use case.

Most of the carpet top colors will be neutral and dark, allowing them to hide soils that come off the shoes. However, you can find a few models with other colors, such as blue, gray, tan, and red.

When selecting a turf top flooring with the rubber back, the turf typically will have a small pile height. The turf yields good traction for athletes who are exercising.

Common Use Options


Our rubber backed flooring will work for multiple use cases, but it’s especially useful where it is important to create a sure footing for people.

With our carpet mats that have rubber backing, they work well when installed at the entrance to a building. The carpet layer on the mats will pull soils and moisture off the shoes of people as they walk across the carpet.

The rubber backing catches the moisture and prevents it from leaking onto the floor underneath. The rubber also holds the mat in place, so it won’t slide around and cause people to lose their balance when they step on it.

Rubber backed turf and vinyl will work nicely for athletic workouts. The rubber delivers a bit of cushioning, while the top layer has the traction required for safe workouts.

Installation Options


One of the best things about our rubber backed flooring options is that installation is extremely easy. There is no requirement to use adhesive or glue on the back of the tiles, rolls, or mats, as the rubber backing should give them the necessary level of grip to keep them in place.

By not using glue, you can pick up this flooring and move it to a new location or take it away for cleaning. It’s easy to expose the subfloor again whenever desired as well. (For a permanent installation, you may use glue.)

Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements


Cleaning these rubber backed tiles, rolls, and mats does not require any special techniques. When preparing to clean these types of flooring, focus on the material across the top layer of the flooring.

With the turf and carpet products, run a vacuum cleaner over the top to remove dry debris. For the roll with a vinyl top layer, you can sweep it with a broom and mop it as needed.

The rubber layer backing does not need special cleaning. If it becomes soiled or dusty, causing it to slide around on the subfloor, you can rinse the rubber layer with a garden hose or run a mop across it to remove debris. Then allow it to air dry.
