Benefits of Eco Friendly Flooring

Why go green? There are countless reasons. Here are just a few of the advantages of eco friendly flooring:
  1. Know that eco friendly tiles are helping to protect our environment for future generations.
  2. Get Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points for projects.
  3. Eco friendly flooring often is ready for recycling in the future, so it will never go to waste.
  4. Increase the appeal of a project or business by highlighting a dedication to going with environmentally friendly flooring options.


At Greatmats, we believe we have an environmental responsibility to provide sustainable flooring product options to our consumers. Having an old tire used for recycled flooring and an old plastics bottle used in our recycled floor mats keep these from being wasted.

Our units are as good as or better choices than the Forest Stewardship Council engineered hardwood flooring for a green building or fiber carpets from sustainable sources.

We source all of our electricity from solar panels located at our Wisconsin facility. For more information on our commitment to the environment, please see our page footer.


Rubberized Recycled Floor Tiles


We offer a variety of selections for commercial or eco friendly home gym flooring. It provides the perfect blend of durability, sustainability and insulation against thermal, noise, and impact conditions. Recycled rubber floor mats are a fire resistant pick, including for:
  1. Residential gymnasiums
  2. Professional environmentally friendly gym
  3. Equestrian facility
  4. Playgrounds
  5. Building entrances


Eco rubber flooring is an excellent choice for home and pro gyms, thanks to its durability and its thermal insulation properties. Some natural rubber flooring is thick and dense enough to protect subfloors from dropped weights, and it is frequently used in homes and health clubs.

Eco friendly gym flooring is easy to clean. Using this is a smart way to guard subfloorings, while being socially responsible. This is more forgiving than concrete or wood flooring, making for more enjoyable workout environments. 

Interlocking rubberized tiling and rolls are great for both residential and commercial use, because they protect floors as well as keeping dirt and debris from getting into equipment.

A tile is often preferred for smaller installations because it is easier to handle, and rolls are practical for larger installations, as they leave fewer seams. Regardless of which option is chosen, this eco friendly flooring is a sound investment. 

There are potentially endless applications for these in equestrian facilities. Our stall matting makes cleaning of stalls easier and gives horses extra comfort in their stalls.

This is available in various thicknesses and sizes and helps avoid placing the tire in the landfill. In addition, a recycled rubber mat is perfect for use in wash and grooming stalls, as well as stall aisles and trailers, thanks to the traction and shock absorption that it has.



For recreational areas, unlike rubbery crumbs or wood chips which can be piled up and kicked around, our playground surfacing tile gives a consistent protection against falling from heights for children on slides, monkey bars, and other kids play equipment.

These are rugged enough to survive outdoors in any climate and are available in varying thicknesses. Like all of our rubberized models, these are manufactured in America. We can help to select the right sustainable playground product based on the requirement for fall heights.
