Rubber Sheet Flooring Installation

Installation is relatively quick and easy. If performing the installation yourself, keep in mind that rubber rolls can be very heavy depending on the thickness and length of the rolls. Make sure to lay the sheets over a clean, hard surface such as concrete or ceramic tile. For standard wall-to-wall installation, simply roll out the rubber and cut to fit the size of the room with a utility knife. The ends of the rolls are not cut square and will require trimming during the installation process. Our rubber sheets are precision cut on their sides at the factory to ensure that they fit seamlessly next to one another. The rolls can be installed using either double-sided tape or adhesive to attach to a clean, hard flooring surface.

Rubber rolls can also be installed without an adhesive or tape, but should be taped at the perimeters and seams to prevent overlapping or sliding of the rolled rubber. For small home installations with less anticipated traffic, tape down installation may not be necessary for the sheet rubber. For installations of more than 1,000 square feet, a full glue down installation is strongly recommended. This is particularly important when climate conditions may fluctuate, as this can lead to slight movement of the rubber. When gluing down the rolls, make sure to use a full spread glue application method, which covers the entire floor surface on which the flooring be laid.

When deciding where to place your flooring, choose an area where it is not subject to continual moisture or dampness, for non-vulcanized rubber is a material that will allow water to permeate it over time. If continually submerged in water or frequently power washed, the small amounts of water will start to works its way into the tiny pores of the surface over time.

Greatmats offers sheet rubber surfaces in a variety of options, available in standard black or color options, ranging from 10% to 20% color and up to 90% color on custom orders.
