Our 8 mm rubber flooring tiles are among the most popular models we offer, as they work well for a variety of installations at a pro facility or around the house, including for exercise rooms and basements.
Interlocking Rubber Floor Tiles Installation
Our rubber flooring tiles require no adhesive and are a piece of cake to handle and carry. These work well for either an island or a layout against the walls in rooms.
These are extremely popular in home gym flooring and residential weight rooms. Thanks to the durable, resilient surface and easy installation, our rubber flooring tiles are commonly found in houses as well as pro fitness studios. For personal workouts, it is essential that the interlocking rubber floor tiles can withstand the rigors of machines and weights.
Customers really love this for a home weight room, especially when using free weights. If dropping a free weight on hardwood, it could damage it. Or with a hefty machine on top of carpeting, it could create indentations that will never go away. Ours will protect the subflooring underneath.
Another benefit to employing these is that they absorb noise. If barbells are dropped on them, family members will not hear the loud noises such workouts can cause. This can be an especially nice feature if the gymnasium is upstairs, so people downstairs don't have to hear the clanging of weights.
These interlocking rubber floor tiles represent Made in America products, which ensures their durability. It carries a 5-year manufacturer's warranty, so trust this product to last an extensive amount of time.
Tough Rubber Flooring Tiles for Basement
These are durable, thick, and portable and will work great for areas where they will be subjected to rough conditions, making them perfect for homeowner gyms, basements, and garage floors. These will stand up to all kinds of machines and heavy items.
These feature a beautiful, smooth surface. They're water jet cut from 4-foot wide rolled rubber mats that are skived from a cylinder core to ensure the tightest specifications in terms of the configuration from piece to piece and from batch to batch.
This cutting method means that some may have a slight curve to them. So all of them should be installed with the same side down.
If they do not want to lay perfectly flat for installing, an option is to use an indoor carpet tape in order to hold them flat. Or wait for several days to allow them to relax to a flattened shape.
The interlocking gym floor tiles design makes it easier to lay down than others, including rubber roll configurations. Unlike those other styles, rubber flooring tiles we offer are made with a urethane binding agent, which almost completely eliminates the rubberized odor that's common with most rubberized options.
This displeasing odor is one reason why some will avoid it, so having the ability to prevent the odor makes these highly popular.
Additionally, these have tightly fitting seams. The tight fit ensures that seams won’t pull loose with heavy exercise equipment atop it.

Coverage Size for Rubber Gym Flooring Tiles
Each measures roughly 2x2. Because of the way the puzzle style edges of the pieces interlock together, a bit of coverage area will be lost.
If calculating the exact number needed for the job, use 3.67 square feet of coverage space per unit to compensate for the loss from puzzled tabs and slots.
To cut to fit in a tight spot in a full room installation, just measure the space for the partial tile. Then cut it with a sharp utility knife and a straightedge, using a series of shallow scores until going all the way through it.
We do not have any borders or corners for this model, so remove the puzzled edging by cutting it off to create a flat side. For those who prefer models with a border, contact our customer service team for help in selecting a different item.
The 8 mm level of thickness provides strong durability, while allowing the product to continue to be easy to install. At this measurement, it will have a bit of give to it, which allows for simple manipulation.
To lay them out, just line up the edges on adjacent puzzle pieces. Press the seams together with hands or step on them to pop them into place. Each weighs 7.4 pounds, so a single person can carry them. However, installing and moving these is simpler with two people on hand because of their size.
The ability to move these easily is a common reason to choose tiling. Purchasing a roll is extremely economical, but the rolls carry a lot of heft, making it difficult to move them without several volunteers and the right equipment. The ease of carrying, moving, and installing these makes them a smart choice for the homeowner seeking rubberized floorings.
Another great feature is that there’s no requirement to use adhesive. The pieces pop together tightly enough and they have enough sturdiness to them that they will not slide around, even if used under heavy traffic. This means avoiding the mess of glue and the smell of adhesives.
Additionally, these are easily moved and disassembled when relocating them or returning to the original subfloor. A lot of our customers like to have these products on hand to create temporary floorings for special events or needs.
Once the event is completed, disassemble and store them until the next time they're needed. Disassembling them is an easy process, but the best method is to step on one and pull up on the adjacent unit to pop them apart.
The material works nicely at the house, at commercial gyms, or in a locker room because it will not absorb odors from sweat as long as it’s cleaned regularly. It also will not absorb moisture under normal use, but may allow for a bit of permeation if soaked or pressure washed. For this reason we recommend damp mopping when cleaning.
Cleaning these is a simple process. Easily sweep as needed to remove loose debris and dust, thanks to the smoothness on the top.
If choosing to use a mop for more thorough cleanings, use a neutral pH cleaner, diluted with hot water as instructed by the cleaner's manufacturer. We suggest having two separate buckets on hand with rinse water and cleaning solution, just to make sure the mop remains as clean as possible.
Ours is in stock and ready to ship the next day. We also occasionally have various color fleck options and color mixes beyond the standard black.
We are offering these interlocking rubber flooring tiles outdoor uses at the most competitive prices available. To find out more about any colors we may have available or if desiring to see a sample, please call us.
FAQ Rubber Flooring Tiles Q&A
Are rubber flooring tiles waterproof?
Yes, and this is one of their biggest advantages. They will resist spilled liquids, causing them to pool on the surface, leaving plenty of time to clean them up. They do not allow the formation of mold and mildew, resisting odors. Even if they’re in wet areas, they have a grippy feel for those walking across them, making them safer in areas where slips could occur.
How long do interlocking rubber floor tiles last?
It’s common for them to last 20 years or more, as long as they receive the proper care. Rubber flooring tiles that look like wood or that are completely black are extremely durable, giving the customer an outstanding value. Additionally, these have a relatively low cost per square foot versus some others, which means the low initial investment stretches out over multiple years, further adding value.
How much does it cost to install rubber tile flooring?
Our products are comparable in price to interlocking rubber floor tiles offer by discount stores, yet ours rely on the highest quality ingredients and manufacturing tolerances, ensuring ours have the perfect mix of longevity and value. For the tiling, expect to pay $2 to $5 per sq ft, while a roll potentially will run $1.50 to $4. As an added benefit, our American floor mats are made for DIY installs, which saves money versus a professional job.
How thick should interlocking rubber tiles for gym be?
For an area where large dumbbells or hefty workout machines will be in use, thicker gym floor mats of 1/2 to 3/4 inches will be the best solution. For regular workouts in the house, those measuring 1/4 to 1/2 inches are a smart selection. The thinner rubber gym floor tiles are easier to maneuver than thicker models and have a lower price. Our 8 mm model of interlocking floor tiles (about 0.31”) is a thick rubber floor tile that will fit nicely into a variety of planned use cases.
Are black rubber flooring rolls safe?
They are, but always stick with a manufacturer and distributor that guarantee using only the best materials and manufacturing processes in these. Sometimes, weak spots will be noticeable with cheap rubber flooring tiles others offer for sale, but ours stick to a tight thickness tolerance that ensures a well built unit that will stand up to anything customers can throw at it in a pro or residential gymnasium. Whether athletes are laying down to perform certain types of exercises or kids and pets will be crawling on these rubber interlocking tiles, they’ll deliver a maximum level of safety.
