The Greatmats Interlocking Rubber Tile, 2x2 Ft x 8 mm Black, is one of the most popular designs of interlocking rubber floor tiles that we offer. This works well for a variety of installations around the home, including for exercise rooms and basements.


Our black gym flooring tiles are made from recycled rubber material, which means this product is beneficial for the environment. Whether you need to install it in a large or small space, this black rubber flooring is up to the challenge.

Our interlocking 2x2 rubber tiles require no adhesive and are easy to handle and carry. The puzzle edge tiles work well for either a wall-to-wall installation in a room or for an island installation.

Tough Materials

For personal workouts, it is essential that the black rubber tile can withstand the rigors of machines and weights. Our black rubber tiles are an extremely popular flooring option for home gyms and residential weight rooms. Because of the durable, resilient surface and easy installation, this interlocking black rubber flooring is one of the best-selling rubber products at Greatmats.

Customers really love this type of black rubber flooring for a home weight room, especially when using free weights. If you drop a free weight on a wood floor, you could damage the floor. Or if you have a heavy weight machine on top of a carpeted floor, you could create indentations that will never go away. By placing this black rubber tile product in the area where you'll be storing and using the free weights or weight machine, you'll protect the flooring underneath.

Another benefit to using our tough rubber tiles in a home weight room or gym is that it absorbs noise. If you drop free weights on the flooring, you won't hear the loud noises such workouts can cause. This can be an especially nice feature if your home gym is on an upper floor of the home, so people underneath it don't have to hear the clanging of weights.

It's also a Made-in-the-USA product, which ensures its durability. It carries a 5-year manufacturer's warranty, so you can trust this product to last a long time.

High Quality Tiles

This durable, thick, and portable black rubber tile works great for areas where it will be subjected to rough conditions. This makes it perfect for home gyms, basement floors, and garages. The 8 mm thickness of these tiles will stand up to all kinds of machines and heavy items. However, if you would like a different thickness in your rubber flooring product, just contact Greatmats to learn about our other options.

These rubber tiles feature a beautiful, smooth surface. They're water-jet cut from a 4-foot wide rolled rubber material that is skived from a cylinder core to ensure tight specifications in terms of the tile size from piece to piece and from batch to batch.

This cutting method means that some tiles may have a slight curve to them. So during installation, all of the rubber tiles in the 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. You also can wait for several days to allow the tiles to relax to a flat shape.

Good Fit and Odor

The interlocking black rubber tiles design makes it easier to install than other rubber flooring options, including rolled rubber flooring. Unlike those other styles, interlocking rubber flooring tiles are made with a urethane binding agent, which almost completely eliminates the rubber odor that's common with most rubber flooring options. This displeasing odor is one reason why some people will avoid rubber flooring, so having the ability to avoid the odor makes our Greatmats Interlocking Rubber Tile 2x2 Ft x 8 mm Black tiles very popular.

Additionally, the black rubber flooring tiles feature tight fitting seams. The tight fit ensures that you won't have to worry about the seams popping loose whenever you drop free weights on them or when using heavy exercise equipment.

Coverage Size

The interlocking black rubber tile pieces each measure roughly 2 by 2 feet in size and 8 mm thick. Because of the way the puzzle style edges of each piece interlock together, you will lose a bit of coverage area during the installation process. When calculating how many black rubber flooring tiles you need for your installation, use 3.67 square feet of coverage per tile to compensate for the puzzle style edge.

Should you need to cut an individual black rubber tile to make it fit in a tight spot in a wall-to-wall installation, you can easily do this. Just measure the space in which you need to place a partial tile. Then cut the tile with a sharp utility knife and a straight edge, using a series of shallow scores until you make it all of the way through the tile.

We do not have any border pieces or corner pieces for this particular type of tile, so you'll have to cut the tiles to remove the puzzle edges if you want to create a flat edge for either a wall-to-wall or island installation. If you would prefer a border type of tile, just contact the Greatmats customer service team for some help in selecting a different type of tile.

Simple Installation

The 8 mm thickness (or 0.31 inches) provides a strong durability to the Greatmats Interlocking Rubber Tile 2x2 Ft x 8 mm Black tiles, while allowing the product to continue to be easy to install. At this thickness, each tile will have a some give to it, which allows you to manipulate it easily.

To lay out the tiles, just line up the edges as you would any adjacent puzzle pieces. You can press the edges together with your hands or you can step on them to pop them into place.

Each piece of these black rubber tiles weighs 7.4 pounds, so one person can carry a tile. However, some people may find installing and moving these tiles is easier with two people because of their size.

The ability to move these individual pieces of black rubber tiles is one reason why some people choose this style of rubber flooring over rolls of rubber flooring. The rolls are more economical than individual tiles, but the rolls carry a lot of weight, making it difficult to move the rolls without several people or equipment. The ease of carrying, moving, and installing these tiles makes them a popular choice for the homeowner looking for a type of rubber flooring.

Another great reason for using our interlocking black rubber flooring is because you don't need any adhesive to install the tile. The pieces fit together tightly enough and they have enough weight to them that they will not slide around on the floor, even when used under heavy traffic. This means you can avoid the mess of glue and the smell of adhesives when installing our black rubber tile.

Disassemble and Store

Additionally, the interlocking black rubber tiles are easy to disassemble and move should you need to relocate them and return to the original sub-floor. A lot of our customers like to have this product on hand to create temporary flooring for special needs or events.

Once the event is completed, you can disassemble our tiles and store them until the next time they're needed. Disassembling the tiles is an easy process, but the best method for most people is to step on one tile and pull up on the adjacent tile to pop them apart.

Flooring Maintenance

The material works well in a home gym because it will not absorb odors from sweat as long as you keep it clean. It also will not absorb moisture under normal use, but may allow for some permeation if soaked or pressure washed. For this reason we recommend damp mopping when cleaning.

Cleaning our black rubber flooring is a simple process. You can sweep the floor as needed to remove loose debris and dust, thanks to the smooth surface on the top of the tiles.

Should you choose to use a mop on the black rubber tiles to perform a more thorough cleaning, use a neutral pH cleaner, diluted with hot water as instructed by the cleaner's manufacturer. We suggest using two buckets, one with rinse water and one with the cleaning solution, just to make sure the mop remains as clean as possible.

Ordering Options

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

Product Questions:

Do you recommend this product be installed over/on top of carpet? If not, do you have a product you would recommend to put on top of carpet?
All of our rubber flooring tiles and rolls are best installed over a hard flat surface. We can also recommend our EZ Floor underlayment, to go down first to create a more stable base for the interlocking tiles to be installed over. http://www.greatmats.com/floor-underlayment/lvt-floor-underlayment.php
Can you put this over carpet?
Yes, but only if the carpet is very flat with no padding, we can also recommend our EZ Floor underlayment, to go down first to create a more stable base for the interlocking tiles to be installed over. http://www.greatmats.com/floor-underlayment/lvt-floor-underlayment.php
Can these tiles be placed safely over a bamboo wood floor (i.e. without damaging the bamboo flooring)? It has been suggested to us that there may be moisture problems with placing rubber gym flooring over our bamboo floors in our home gym.
The rubber can act as a vapor barrier, so if moisture wants to come out of the wood you might see a moisture issue. We always recommend a plastic sheeting between all wood floors and all rubber flooring material, to avoid any leaching.
Are these tiles also available in edge and corner pieces?
This particular 2x2 ft rubber interlocking tile is not available in corner and border pieces, we do have other interlocking tiles have have corners and borders, see the product called 'Puzzle Tile' interlocking rubber tile.
Do apply an adhesive to the bottom of the tiles or is it just laid on top of the floor?
Generally you would not need adhesive for an interlocking tile, that I the benefit of an interlocking tile. No adhesive required. If you did choose to glue down, I would trowel down on the floor with a 1/16th inch vnotch.
If I place these tiles directly on my basement floor, will mold grow under the tiles because they are directly laying on top of the porous concrete surface?
Mold will grow anywhere moisture is present. The mold growth would not be dependent upon the tiles, so the answer is very likely yes. You may consider a raised modular floor tile like our Staylock floor tile for a moist basement floor.
Could these mats be used in a horse stable isle way only? Looking for something durable but could be less durable than an actual stall mat.
Most rubber tiles can be used with horses - for isle ways we recommend at least 1/2 inch thickness and the rubber tiles with more of a pattern top will be less porous.
Should you offset the rubber tiles or does it matter?
These tiles can not be off set during installation.

Customer Rating:


Very satisfied - installed easily over carpeting; much higher quality than the foam mats that are available from discount stores.

Customer Rating:


The tiles were heavy but easy to install. Interlocking feature really makes it great for installing and moving tiles around. This flooring was installed wall to wall in a small personal service Spin Studio and works great for cushioning under the Spin bikes as well as for overall flooring. The only con to the product is the strong rubber smell that takes a while to dissipate.
