Interlocking Rubber Gym Floor Tile Comparison - Non Slip Flooring

By Brett Hart Created: October, 2017 - Modified: September, 2023

Let's compare interlocking rubber gym floor tiles.

Interlocking rubber gym floor tiles are designed to provide a durable, non-slip gym floor surface that will protect concrete floors from exercise equipment and allow athletes to train with high intensity.

Today, we will compare three of Greatmats' most popular 2x2 foot interlocking rubber tiles - Interlocking Rubber Floor Tiles Color 8 mm x 2x2 Ft., Interlocking Rubber Tile Gmats Black 3/8 Inch, and Sundance Mats Interlocking Black 3/4 Inch. All three versions are made of recycled content and feature at least 5-year warranties.

As the thinnest option, the 8mm tiles also offer the lowest price per square foot. These tiles feature a slightly softer rubber material and weigh in at just under 7 1/2 pounds per tile.

8 mm interlocking rubber gym tile

The 3/8 inch thick version adds about 1/2 pound per tile.

3/8 Inch interlocking rubber gym tile

At double the thickness of the 3/8 inch tiles, Sundance tiles are also double the weight.

3/4 inch interlocking rubber gym tile

One of the most notable differences between the 8mm and 3/8 inch tiles compared to the 3/4 inch tile is the surface texture. The 8mm and 3/8 inch tiles feature a smooth, flat surface finish while the thicker 3/4 inch version offers a hexagon pattern texture.

Interlocking Rubber Tile Gmats Black 3/8 Inch are also the only tiles in this group that are reversible, but all offer a universal interlocking system.

Sundance tiles are the only fully waterproof tiles in this group. The 8mm and 3/8 inch tiles are partially non-absorbent.

The 3/4 inch Sundance tile offers the best shock absorption and is the one most recommended for areas in which heavy weights will be dropped. It also is designed to significantly reduce noise and vibration.

The 8mm thick tiles are offered in 3 different color fleck options. Interlocking 3/8 Inch Tiles and Sundance 3/4 Inch Tiles are only offered black.

Thanks for watching. Now go out and be great!
