Choosing the Right Gymnasium Floor for Your Needs
Greatmats offers a wide variety of flooring products suitable for any gym. Consider the following when choosing the best product for your facility:
- What activities will your gym be used for?
- How much traffic will your gym see?
- How large of a space will you need flooring for?
- Which qualities in a floor are the most important to you, such as shock absorption, durability, cost, and appearance?
- What installation method do you prefer to use? Will this be a professional installation, or are you looking for a DIY project?
We offer athletic flooring in plastic, vinyl, rubber, carpet, foam and artificial turf materials. Our gymnasium flooring products allow you to easily convert your gymnasium from a basketball court to a dance floor, indoor soccer field, or event venue in a snap without the need for professional flooring installers. These products are also as easy to remove and store as they are to install. Some options, including gym wall pads, are also great for permanent installations in multipurpose athletic facilities.
We've highlighted some of our most popular gymnasium floor options below to help you get started.
Modular Gymnasium Flooring
Our interlocking, modular tiles will provide cushion, comfort, and style. These products are lightweight and easy to install and transport.
One of the major benefits of modular gymnasium flooring is its ease of installation. Interlocking tiles are conveniently sized so that they are easy to transport and install. They fit together like puzzle pieces, locking together securely so that they won't separate unless you want to remove the tiles. There is no adhesive required for installation, and installing these modular tiles can even be a great do-it-yourself project. You can save money on installation costs by opting for versatile modular court flooring.
Modular gymnasium flooring also gives you the benefit of being able to create patterned floor designs through the use of manageable-sized plastic, vinyl, or carpet tiles. Create a solid look with matching tile, a checkerboard look by alternating two different colors or patterns, or even use multiple tiles to create a logo or other recognizable design. The possibilities are endless, and you can easily create a customized appearance for your gym.
Many of our plastic modular gymnasium flooring tiles feature a raised base and all are nonabsorbent. This means that they can be used in areas where moisture may be an issue, since air and water can freely circulate and dry within the tiles' base. These tiles offer excellent options for dance floors and multipurpose event areas, as well as colorful athletic flooring.
Artificial Athletic Turf
Turn any gymnasium into an indoor soccer practice area with rolls or interlocking tiles of padded athletic artificial turf. Artificial turf is an excellent way to get the look and feel of real grass without any of the mess, cost, or maintenance.
Artificial athletic turf is available for permanent installation, but we also have portable, temporary installation products available, too. For instance, our Gym Turf 365 Portable Indoor Sports Turf requires no adhesive for installation, can be installed in minutes, and can be easily rolled up again until you next need the flooring.
These athletic turf options also work well for indoor track and field shot put areas or football sled work.
Rolled Gymnasium Flooring
Rolled gymnasium flooring is a popular choice for larger installations, since it covers large areas with fewer seams than modular tiles. It is usually a more economical choice than tiles, though rolled flooring can be heavier and may require multiple people to lift and install it.
Vinyl gym flooring rolls are commonly used for basketball, volleyball, dance or recreational purposes. They provide smooth, durable surfaces, but generally do not offer much cushion.
Gymnasium floor rolls most commonly come in foam, vinyl, or rubber. Foam gymnasium rolls are most often used for cheerleading, wrestling, or gymnastic type activities, thanks to their excellent shock absorption properties. They can quickly soften large areas of harder gym flooring, making them suitable for sports where falls and ground work is common and extra padding is needed.
Rubber rolls are significantly heavier than the other options and are intended for more permanent style installations where non-slip surfaces are desired. They are not recommended for temporary installations. This flooring provides excellent sound and thermal insulation while also offering excellent impact absorption. Rubber is also one of the most durable flooring options available, making it a favorite option for commercial gyms or gymnasiums which see high traffic and use.
Protective Gym Floors
Purchasing a gym floor is a big investment, so it's important to protect your floor whenever possible. If your gymnasium will be used for non-athletic activities, like dances, banquets, meetings, graduation ceremonies, or other events, protective gym floors can help to keep the gym looking great.
Greatmats offers protective gym floor coverings in the form of gymnasium carpet tiles and vinyl sheeting. These floor covers are excellent for protecting your gym floor from the wear and tear of non-athletic events, including traffic from high heeled shoes and the potential for spilled drinks.
For fast and easy coverage of large gymnasium floors, our 10-foot-wide vinyl floor covers are the way to go. Two people can easily deploy a floor cover system over your entire gym floor within 30 minutes. Due to the size of these covers, we highly recommend our Premier Safety Storage Racks which come with two hand cranks for easy winding.
Your next fastest option for covering your gymnasium floor are our gymnasium carpet floor tiles. The tiles measure 6.5 by 3.3 feet in size and feature a non-slip backing. These giant protective gymnasium carpet tiles provide additional comfort and style for your gymnasium floor and can be installed by a single person. Rolling carts are available for easy tile mobility and storage.
Vertical Gymnasium Padding
No gym is complete without adequate wall, pole, and door padding. That's why Greatmats carries a variety of products for gyms including wall pads, folding mats, pole pads, gymnastics mats, and more.
Many of our products are available in custom colors, sizes, designs, and more. You can even have your logo or mascot printed directly on the vinyl surfaces to add some school spirit to your school gymnasium. These one-of-a-kind products are excellent for gyms that host sports teams, or consider using them to incorporate branding into your commercial gym.
Care and cleaning of our gymnasium flooring is best accomplished with an automated, commercial, walk-behind floor cleaning device. Please refer to the information provided for each specific product for more details on care and maintenance.
Greatmats offers many flooring products which can be easily installed by local maintenance personnel. Our snap-together tiles and screw-on wall padding products make for a simple, efficient installation, saving you time and money over professional installation options.
Gymnasium floors ship via freight delivery in most cases. Please call our Flooring Experts for more detailed information and shipping quotes.
