The thickness of a rubber mat will directly relate to its ability to absorb shock … and to protect the subfloor in the process. It offers extra protection with more support options and and shock absorption than thinner designs. Thick commercial-grade outdoor rubber mats are often used for in horse stalls, on deck and patios, underneath playground equipment and on rooftops.

But they can be found indoors too to protect subfloors in weightlifting areas or beneath heavier workout equipment. Anything over 3/4 inch thick for indoor use is designed for heavy weightlifting areas where free weights will be dropped frequently. Many of these also offer some of the best cushion for plyometric style exercises. 1 inch thick large rubber mats for gym are great for heavy weight support. A shock absorbent, sound reducing rubber mat for a weight room is available with proven results against dropped weights.

Vulcanized rubber matting will not require the same amount of thickness as non-vulcanized in order to yield the same durability, but it will have a stronger new smell and generally are much harder.

Rooftop patios generally have 2 inch thick slip-resistant outdoor rubber mats or deck tiles to ensure there is enough weight to keep them in place during strong winds.

Playgrounds should have a 2”-plus outdoor rubber mat designed specifically to provide optimum fall protection.

Athletic Matting

Rubber has extreme durability, and its strength makes it a popular choice for athletic applications. Most of our high quality gym floor mats range from 1/4'' to 1” thick. These are useful for athletic high traffic areas, as well as for any space that will see significant impacts, like weightlifting rooms.

Recycled rubber is strong, so it offers excellent subfloor protections. Many opt to install rubber mats as garage flooring for home gyms where free weights may be dropped. Customers also may set them underneath hefty equipment to offer additional protection to the home gym flooring. Because it is dense, it resists being indented - even by significant weight.

If looking for durability with more cushion, consider our plyometric units, which still have excellent of protection for the subfloor, but its composition is a bit less dense than what is found in traditional rubberized products. As a result, they have a little bit of give to them, making them comfortable for jumping. We do not recommend plyometric rubber flooring for areas where heavy weights will be dropped.

An industrial rubber mat roll or section can improve comfort and relieve tired legs for anyone who needs to spend long hours on their feet.

Industrial environments can have harsh elements, such as grease and oil, but many of our mats are made to withstand those very elements that would damage cheaper models. Many are resistant to grease and are designed to prevent slipping to improve safety for employees. Others are designed to withstand welding sparks or to control static electricity for high heat and electrically sensitive environments.

To cover wet areas, such as in basements, garages, kitchens or even a laundry room, perforations will keep employees' feet dry and out of the water. They let liquids run right through them, so the top stays dry. Some have designs that help to further maximize traction, like grit incorporated into the mat's top layer.

Look for a bright yellow edging (or other colors) to increase safety and visibility. Some have a beveled edge for easy accessibility with cart traffic and to reduce tripping hazards. In addition to smaller individual units, some runners measure as long as 60’ to quickly cover the cement base in a warehouse.

FAQ Rubber Mat Q&A

What are the best rubber floor mats?

For covering a larger space, multiple rubber mat pieces are the smartest option. Or consider a thinner roll of 3/8 inch or less for ease of movement.

Is a rubber mat worth it?

Large sections deliver very few seams at a lower price per square foot, ideal both for commercial and residential spaces. These are particularly beneficial for high traffic spaces like stair treads, since the rubbery material is firmer and more durable than plastic or foam cushioned products. When used at work, they can transform hard concrete subfloors into a softer, safer spot, reducing tripping hazards.

What is the best way to cut rubber gym mats?

They can be easily cut to fit tight to the edges or around obstacles. Lay out a ruler or guide and score the rubberized materials, including EPDM tiles, with a knife. Set a 2x4 piece of wood under the area to be sliced open, and gravity will allow the cutting to pull apart, simplifying the process.

How do you attach rubber mat tiling in a stall?

The heavy duty stall mats with holes, which come in both straight edging and interlocking modular tiles, do not require a glue down installation. Most can be connected via connector clips, so they are easy to clean and easy to install, making them suitable as a DIY project. In certain conditions, they’re heavy enough for animal stalls that no attachment is needed.

Are rubber floor tiles toxic?

No. They do have an odd odor, similar to a new car smell, that some people find off-putting, but it dissipates over time. There have been no studies that have discovered a link between using recycled tires and other types or rubberized components in floorings and toxicity exposure in humans, children, or animals.
