Most rubber products are not vulcanized, which means you can see the individual particles of rubber. Vulcanized rubber usually comes in mat form, and is completely waterproof.
Where can you install rubber flooring?

What is vulcanized rubber flooring?
Rubber is available in vulcanized and non-vulcanized types. Because vulcanized rubber is stronger and more durable, it doesn't need to be as thick as non-vulcanized rubber in order to offer the same protection.
Where is rubber flooring used?

- Weight rooms
- Gym floors
- Playground surfaces
- Dog play areas
- Equine or horse stalls and barns
- Basement floors
- Areas around ice rinks
- Decks and patios
High quality rubber floors are popular for indoor and outdoor installations. Indoor rubber options are available in mats, rolls, and interlocking tiles. Most outdoor rubber floors come in the form of interlocking tiles or pavers.
Using rubber flooring matting can also help to reduce your carbon footprint, since most of the rubber used in flooring is made from recycled content. The rubber is most often from recycled automobile tires, and the new rubber rubber products are highly durable and last for decades.
Rubber: An Environmentally Friendly Option
With almost 260 million tires being discarded each year, recycled rubber floor products make an important contribution by helping to keep many of these tires from ever entering landfills. Most rubber floor products are made of recycled car or truck tires. Rubber is a green flooring option and can help to keep your project environmentally friendly.
Keep in mind, too, that rubber's long lifespan contributes to its designation as a green flooring product. Rubber flooring products can last for decades, and many products come with 10 or even 15-year warranties. This extreme durability means there's less wasted product in the long run. You can even recycle many rubber products once again once your flooring has reached the end of its lifespan. This means less rubber waste going back into the landfill, and an additional recycling opportunity.
If you want to keep your project earth-friendly, or are working on a project where going green is important, choosing rubber products for your flooring is an excellent way to ensure that you're making a smart environmental choice.
Rubber may be the perfect flooring solution for your project. Below are the various types of rubber matting and flooring options that Greatmats offers.
Rubber Floor Tiles
Rubber floor tiles are one of the most popular flooring options, thanks to their convenient size and design. Rubber floor tiles are ideal for use with smaller projects. These tiles are sized so that they're convenient to transport, and you can even navigate a narrow hallway or staircase with the tiles. They're also easy to install, and are available in both interlocking and glue-down forms. These tiles are frequently installed in home gyms, horse stalls, playgrounds, and exercise areas.
Rubber flooring tiles are usually available as 2x2 or 3x3 foot squares, and most tiles have puzzle-style interlocking edges for easy installation. Tiles for indoor are usually between 2 mm and 3/4 inch thick.
Tile made of rubber for outdoor use are usually thicker, and can be as thick as 5 inches. These tiles are popular for playgrounds, patios and decks. Many of the thicker tiles offer fall height protection of between 8 and 10 feet. Most interlocking tiles don't require adhesives, though some gluing may be recommended for rubber playground flooring tiles.
Glue-down rubber squares with straight edges are often used in commercial and retail environments. They are about 1.5 feet wide and are non-absorbent.
Rubber tiles offer the following benefits:
- Easy installation, especially with interlocking tiles
- Smaller size is easier to move, allowing for one-person installation
- A variety of thicknesses provide increased durability and even fall height protection.
Interlocking Rubber Floor Tile Kits
The Rubberlock line of gym rubber floors offers an incredibly simple and easy flooring option. These affordable kits are pre-determined in size, so there's no more guesswork involved in ordering products and cutting them to fit. Easy to install, the kits help ensure your project goes smoothly, with minimal frustration.
These Rubberlock tile kits are Greatmats' first rubber tile product to be offered in a kit designed for easy island installations. Included in the kit you will find beveled edge pieces for all of the mats. There are also two side beveled edges as well as non-beveled edges. This carefully thought-out kit can be installed in the corner of a room while still having two finished edges, or you can opt to create a true island installation with finished edges all around. The beveled edges allow for an easy transition from a hard, flat surface to your home or gym floor, minimizing the chance of tripling and making for a natural transition.
These Rubberlock interlocking rubber squares are easy to install and move. The tiles measure 2x2 feet and feature a tight-fitting interlocking design. There's no need to use adhesive for the installation, meaning you can even relocate or remove the tiles in the future if you need.
These floor tile kits offer the following benefits:
- Create a home gym or workout area in any part of a room - including the corners, or as an island installation
- Take the guesswork out of ordering; the kit includes everything that you need
- Installs in minutes with no adhesive necessary
Rubber Floor Mats
Rubber mats are versatile options suitable for use on playgrounds, in gyms, in horse stalls, and even in industrial areas.
Our most common size of rubber matting measures 4x6 feet. You can choose from a variety of thicknesses for a rubber mat, ranging between 3/8 inch and 3/4 inch. For a secure installation over a larger area, we offer rubber mats with interlocking edges that ensure a secure fit.
Our Playground Swingset mats range from 2x4 feet to 3x5 feet in size and are between 1 and 2.25 inches thick. Other rubber playground mats are offered in 2.6x4.5 foot and 3x3 foot sizes. These mats are frequently used underneath equipment, such as slides, to provide additional durability and protection.
If you're looking for additional sizes and thicknesses, we have plenty of other products to fit your project. Some rubber mats intended for use in horse stalls are available in sizes large as 14x14 feet.
Many rubber floor mats are intended to be used independently, but in some circumstances, they are installed butted up next to each other to cover larger surfaces. A rubber mat can help to add protection and durability to an underlying surface, and their potential uses are endless.
Consider using rubber matting for the following:
- Additional protection and durability under swings, slides, and other playground equipment
- Coverage for gym areas that require additional protection, such as in weight areas
- Durable surfaces for work spaces, barn aisles, or other heavily trafficked areas
For installations covering larger areas, rolled rubber floors are an ideal - and often the most economical - solution. Rubber rolls create fewer seams than using interlocking rubber tiles, and they add a certain degree of warmth and comfort to cold concrete floors, making for a more enjoyable environment. They are usually a more economical choice when you're working with a large area, but keep in mind that rubber rolls are large and heavy, so you will need multiple people to assist with the installation.
Rubber rolls are most frequently used in large industrial or workout areas, such as gyms, but they are also a popular option for canine and equine facilities as well as liquor stores, event centers and more. Rubber is easy to disinfect and clean, making it a convenient flooring option.
Rubber rolls are made from virgin, synthetic, or recycled rubber. Sometimes multiple rubbers are used. Greatmats carries rubber from many national manufacturers, which allows us to find a factory closest to you, saving you money on freight delivery.
Consider the following benefits of rolled rubber floors:
- Minimizes seams in large installations for a more professional look.
- More economical option for large applications.
- Easy to disinfect and clean for minimal maintenance.
Rubber Playground Flooring
Playground flooring must meet specific requirements in terms of traction, durability, and safety. Many of our rubber products come with fall-height ratings, meaning they have been tested to help keep children safe from falls of particular heights. These products include the Blue Sky Rubber Playground Tiles, Max Playground Rubber flooring, and Bounce Back Rubber Playground Mats. These tiles and mats are easier to transport than rolled rubber, and are all designed for outdoor use in playgrounds.
Rubber playground tiles have been proven to be one of the safest forms of playground flooring, since they are not displaced by children swinging, dragging their feet or falling. They also do not hide any hazards such as broken glass, nails or other sharp objects.
Rubber floor tiles for playground surfaces are an increasingly popular choice, since they provide fall height ratings and are easy to install, repair and maintain. Outdoor rubber tiles create a clean and safe surface which is guaranteed to last for years, even when subjected to elements such as the sun, rain and snow.
Another benefit of rubber tiles is that, if a tile becomes damaged or worn, you can replace that one tile, rather than having to replace the entire section of flooring. This design can save you both time and money.
Most rubber floor tiles carry a 10 to 15 year warranty. If a section of the flooring needs to be replaced, you can remove only those particular tiles without needing to resurface the entire area.
How to Best Find the Top 5 Types of Playground Tiles
- Choose rubber playground tiles with ASTM fall height ratings
- Learn the difference between EPDM color flecks and pigmented rubber
- Choose tiles that offer interlocking edges for easy installation
- Choose the correct base for installation and proper drainage.
- Work with a professional landscape installer for a long lasting installation
Rubber Gym Flooring
Highly durable and offering a tremendously long lifespan, it's no wonder that rubber continues to be one of the most popular options for both home and commercial gyms, as well as for weight rooms. Rubber can be laid directly over flat surfaces such as concrete or wood, making for a simplified installation.
Rubber gym flooring offers both shock absorption and significant strength. Rubber floors in weight rooms can help to absorb the impact of a dropped weight, which also helps to protect a subfloor from damage and wear and tear. Rubber also offers some sound and thermal insulation, which can make a big difference in the atmosphere of weight rooms and gym spaces.
Rolled rubber, sold in 4-foot-wide rolls, is typically the most economical rubber floor option. Rolled rubber also results in fewer seams than working with interlocking tiles. However, rolled rubber is heavy and its installation requires multiple people.
Interlocking rubber tiles guarantee easy installation, as the tiles are relatively lightweight, conveniently sized and designed for wall-to-wall application. Cut tiles or rolls to fit with a sharp utility knife. Some of the most popular gym flooring options are our Geneva Interlocking Rubber Tiles, Gym Rubber Floor Mats and Rubber Confetti Rolls. And don't forget about our revolutionary sound and vibration reducing ShokLok tiles!
The Top 5 Best Uses of Rubber Flooring for Gym Floors
- Rolled rubber flooring for large gym or athletic areas
- interlocking rubber tiles for a home gym and workout space in your basement or garage
- 3/4 Inch 4x6 ft or interlocking mats for weight lifting rooms
- High color rubber tiles for custom gym flooring
- 2.5 inch thick rubber tiles for sound reduction in cross fitness gyms
Rubber Mats for Horse Stalls
Many stable owners opt to use rubber stall mats in their horse stalls, since the mats are highly durable and incredibly strong. A stall that is matted is easier to clean, and the mats help to keep the horses safer and more comfortable. Matted stalls lead to reduced labor costs, since staff can clean the stalls more quickly, and you don't have to pay for as much bedding, because less bedding is needed and thrown out. Rubber mats for stables are available as interlocking kits, as well as rubber rolls for larger installations.
Rubber stall mats are sold in high quality 3/4 inch thick interlocking tiles, as well as in the common straight edge 4x6 foot mats. Interlocking stall kits are available in 10x10 foot areas and larger, so you don't have to worry about cutting pieces to fit your stall. Interlocking stall mats can be custom made to fit any space, including aisle ways, storage areas, wash bays and outdoor paths.
The Sundance 4x6 foot stall mat is an economical option for stables. This tile, available in a 3/4 inch thickness, can be purchased as both a straight-edge and interlocking tile. This is our most economical 3/4 inch interlocking rubber tile.
The Top 6 Best Uses of Rubber for Horse Stalls and Barns
- 4x6 Ft straight edges mats in horse stalls
- Interlocking custom horse stall kits
- Barn aisle flooring
- Wash bay mats with bump top surface
- Horse trailer mats
- Rolled rubber for the walls in horse stalls
Rubber Floors for Dog Training and Daycare
Rubber products have quickly become a go-to solution for the growing dog daycare industry. Rubber rolls are ideal for dog play areas, since the surface is gentle on the dogs' feet but is also resistant to damage from dogs' toenails or fluids. The rubber is easy to clean and is highly durable, so your investment will go far.
Some of the nation's leading dog daycare facilities have installed rolled rubber in their play areas for a safe, attractive, and economical surface.
Rubber Anti Fatigue Mats
If you spend long periods of time on your feet, then rubber industrial anti-fatigue mats can reduce the stress that standing exerts on your body. These mats offer a non-slip, forgiving surface that is safe to work on. For mats to be used in kitchens and under bar stools, grease resistant options are available. Ring mats also have perforated holes to keep workers up off slippery, wet floors, such as those that occur in commercial kitchens and in dish washing stations.
Anti-fatigue mats and their safe surfaces contribute to a safe and productive work environment. They are essential for any business where workers are on their feet for long periods of time, and are useful in kitchens, factories and other work places.
There's another advantage to anti-fatigue mats, though: They can reduce the risk of worker injury and maximize worker productivity. This simple flooring upgrade can increase your business' bottom line.
Rubber Roof and Deck Flooring
Rubber is a common flooring type for rooftop patios and decks. Rubber is heavy enough to resist strong winds and weathering, and it won't freeze or be damaged by extreme temperature fluctuations.
Additionally, rubber provides excellent slip resistance and offers some fall height protection for an overall safe flooring surface.
Rubber Commercial Flooring and Accessories
Greatmats provides flooring tiles, stair treads, and wall-to-wall bases for commercial installations. We offer the Burke Flooring line of Burke Endura specifically for commercial spaces such as schools, libraries, airports and offices. This flooring line features tiles in multiple colors, and you can choose from three surface textures: square, sculpted and coin.
Stair treads are available in all widths and nose styles, and you can purchase them with or without risers or safety edging. Rubber and vinyl wall bases are designed to match the rubber tiles and stair treads for a finished, uniform look.
The Burke Endura line offers everything you need for your commercial flooring project.
Rubber Flooring Product Pricing
Generally speaking, rubber tends to be an affordable flooring option, though several factors will determine the price that you'll pay for rubber products. A floor's thickness, size, and convenience of installation will all contribute to the overall price, and whether that flooring fits into your budget.
Rolled rubber is usually the least expensive flooring option, and it starts at just over $1 per square foot. While rolled rubber is thin, the large rolls can be inconvenient to transport and install because of their size and weight. This can also affect the cost of shipping. When you order, make sure that you speak with a Greatmats sales representative who can find the best shipping option to save you money.
Floor mats, which are thicker than rolled rubber, are available in 4x6 foot sizes for just under $2 a square foot. They can be an economical option for outfitting horse stalls, olympic weight lifting areas or other smaller projects.
In the mid-range price scale ($4-$5 per square foot) you'll find a lot of our interlocking rubber puzzle tiles and Equine Paver Tiles. These rubber floor products are conveniently sized for easy transportation and installation. Most of the interlocking tiles and equine paver tiles fall in the thickness range between 3/8 and 3/4 inch thick and are 2x2 feet in size.
At the upper end of the price spectrum ($7 per square foot or more) are many of the more colorful and finished varieties of rubber, as well as those of significant thickness. This includes our Endura line of Commercial flooring tiles, most of our rooftop and playground tiles and Dog Bone Outdoor Paver Tiles.
Cleaning Rubber Floors and Products
We recommend using a neutral pH floor cleaner for indoor rubber matting and floors. Use a damp mop or rag with hot water and the cleaner. You can also sweep and vacuum your indoor flooring. For larger areas, you can use an automated walk-behind or riding floor cleaning device as long as you have appropriate brushes or pads.
Most often, rubber floors are not sealed, but interlocking and rolled rubber tiles can be sealed using a recommended sealer. Sealers provide a clean and more durable wear surface in extremely high traffic areas. Sealing does not, however, require continual cleaning and resealing.
Top 5 Tips How Best To Clean Rubber Floor Mats
- Vacuum with a beater brush for routine cleanings.
- For more stubborn grime, a nylon mop with warm water and a mild neutral pH cleaner works best.
- To reduce the rubber floor odor, try Pinesol or Simple Green.
- Be sure to mop up all residue.
- Do not use petroleum-based cleaners or those containing a wax agent.
Rubber Floor Installation
Your technique for installing rubber mats will vary depending on the room size, the rubber type, and the space's intended use. For larger commercial installations, we recommend using a glue-down method, especially when installing rolled rubber.
A simple cut-to-fit and dry lay installation can be used with interlocking tiles, making them ideal for home installations and smaller projects. Some playground tiles feature an interlocking installation method.
