Greatmats' Beliefs About Environmental Responsibility
At Greatmats, we believe we have an environmental responsibility to provide sustainable product options to our consumers. Old tires used for recycled rubber flooring and bottles used in our recycled plastic floor tiles keep these materials from being wasted. Our eco-friendly gym flooring keeps rubber tires out of the landfills, while ensuring that the flooring itself is also recyclable at the end of its lifespan. Recycling products to make flooring also limits the amount of virgin materials consumed, while helping to cut down on the valuable natural resources that are unnecessarily used up.
An environmentally conscious company, Greatmats gets all of its electricity from solar panels located at our Wisconsin facility. For more information on our commitment to the environment, please see our page footer.
The green floor mat products listed here are made from recycled materials or renewable resources such as tires, plastic bottles, or bottle stoppers.
Recycled Rubber Flooring
We offer a variety of green rubber flooring products for home or commercial gym use. Recycled rubber provides the perfect blend of durability, sustainability and insulation against thermal, noise, and impact conditions. Recycled rubber flooring is also a great fire resistant green floor mat option.
Below you will find recycled rubber products for:
- Home gyms
- Professional gyms
- Horse stalls and equestrian facilities
- Building entrances
Green rubber flooring is an excellent choice for professional and home gyms, thanks to its durability and its thermal insulation properties. Some rubber products are thick and dense enough to protect subfloors from dropped weights, and rubber flooring is frequently used in homes and health clubs around the world. Eco-friendly gym flooring is easy to clean, and using this sustainable flooring is a great way to protect your floors while also being environmentally responsible. Rubber is more forgiving than concrete floors, making for a more enjoyable workout environment.
Interlocking tiles and rolls of rubber are great for both home and commercial use, because they protect your flooring as well as keeping dirt and debris from getting into equipment. Tiles are often preferred for smaller installations because they are easier to handle, while rolled rubber is more practical for larger installations, because it leaves fewer seams in the floor. Regardless of which option you choose, this eco-friendly gym flooring is a sound investment.
There are potentially endless applications for green floor mats in equestrian facilities. Our recycled rubber stall mats are an eco-friendly way to make stall cleaning easier, and to make horses more comfortable in their stalls. Made from previously used rubber products such as vehicle tires, these mats are incredibly durable and will last for years in almost any situation.
This green flooring is available in various thicknesses and sizes and rescues countless tires from landfills every year. In addition to making great stall mats, recycled rubber mats are also excellent for use in wash stalls, grooming stalls, stall aisles, and trailers, thanks to the traction and shock absorption that they provide.
Unlike rubber crumbs or wood chips which can be piled up and kicked around, our green playground surfacing tiles provide a consistent fall-height protection for children on slides, monkey bars, and other playground equipment. These environmentally friendly green floor mats are rugged enough to last for years outdoors in any climate, and are available in varying thicknesses. These tiles are also built from recycled rubber products. Like all of our rubber products, our playground surfacing tiles are made in America. We can help you to select the right sustainable playground product based on the fall-height requirement your playground requires.
Entrance tiles made from recycled tires are also available. These green floor mats can take a beating and can sustain the abuse that comes in high traffic entrance areas. They can be found in businesses around the world, and are an excellent investment for any company which prioritizes going green.
Recycled Plastic Flooring
We also offer recycled plastic flooring for playground surfacing as well as industrial use. Extremely durable, these recycled plastic products are designed to take years of abuse.
Consider recycled plastic flooring products for:
- Playground flooring
- Pool surrounds
- Industrial use
- Residential areas, such as basement floors
- Special outdoor event flooring
Our outdoor plastic playground tiles are perforated to allow excellent drainage for rain and snow. They make for a forgiving surface which provides excellent traction, and many tiles are also suitable for use around the home, or in wet areas such as pool surrounds.
Our Staylock Perforated Tiles offer an ASTM fall height rating of 20 inches. They are non-slip, and the perforated tile allows drainage, which is ideal for use around pools, spas, on deck tops, and on patios. Designed specifically for outdoor installations, the tiles are waterproof and resistant to many oils and acids. They are durable and installation is easy, thanks to an active locking connector system.
Our green floor mats for industrial areas are built to endure heavy traffic and heavy equipment. They also work great in residential areas such as basement floors or in garages. Our Warehouse Floor Coin PVC Tile is made of 100% recycled PVC material, and is resistant to oil, gasoline, most solvents, and caustics. Its color and tensile strength are not affected by heat, cold, or humidity, making this tile an ideal option for use in industrial environments.
We also offer a green tent flooring for special events. This simply clicks together and can be used and re-used multiple times. Made from recycled plastic, these green floor mats are very tough and will last for years. They are easy to install, lightweight, and an essential item for outdoor event venues.
Recycled or Renewable Cork Flooring
Cork flooring delivers a one-two punch against environmental concerns. The raw material comes from the bark of cork oak trees, which can grow back their bark. In recycled form, cork flooring is often made of waste cork from bottle stopper manufacturing. Like recycled rubber, green flooring made of cork also provides thermal and acoustic insulation. It is also naturally elastic and antimicrobial, and repels insects.
Consider cork flooring for:
- Building underlayments
- Artificial turf fill
- Laminate flooring for homes
Cork laminate flooring is affordable, durable, and all natural. It also looks great while preventing sore legs, feet, joints, and back. This flooring option offers more shock absorption than traditional laminate, while adding a stylish touch to kitchens, living rooms, or other floor spaces.
Cork also makes a popular underlayment, thanks to its excellent noise reduction properties. Our AcoustiCork Plus 250 underlayment is manufactured with 85% recycled materials. It provides sound reduction for resilient flooring products, like solid tile or linoleum, and is non-absorbent.
