Most Common Product Questions For ground protection mat at Greatmats:
Will installation of rubber mat over wood deck cause wood to rot?
Good question, the rolled rubber should only be installed outdoors with a full glue down installation over a flat surface, not sure about the wood deck. I would consider a modular perforated tile to cover a wood deck.
Would this product work as flooring around a jacuzzi? It's an indoors jacuzzi sitting on a cement slab.
This would be fine, the rubber is not very absorbent.
Could the rubber matting be used outside around a poll, instead of say rock or mulch?
This product in the rolled rubber is for indoor use. We can recommend an outdoor patio rubber tile for outdoors.
Will this work well under an exercise bike and on carpet? What thickness should I get?
Yes this product can be install under an exercise bike or similar exercise equipment and is generally recommended to be installed over a hard flat surface. 1/4 inch thickness would be very good. If installing over carpeting use a rubber sheeting below the rubber to protect the carpet.
I have a squash court inside my home and want to protect the unvarnished wood floor from damage if I were to put tables, chairs, people in that space. Which of your products would you recommend?
We have gym flooring protection sheet vinyl material from 10 oz. up to 27 oz. weight that is designed for large scale gym floor protection for such uses as you describe.
Would it be appropriate to use this product as a portable cusion option? I realize there are portable tiles, but I want to cover ~750 square feet for a few hours, then pick it up, a couple time s a week. Rolls seem more efficient for this application.
I would not call our rolled rubber a cushioned product in general, its hard like a car tire. Please contact our customer service to discuss your application and the best product options. The rolled rubber is portable, as you could roll it up and put it down as needed.
Will this work as stall mats?
Generally stall mats should be 3/4 inch thickness, rolled rubber is not generally used for stall mats. Rolled rubber can be used for installation on the walls in the horse stalls.
will the rubber ''wick'' gradually and cause the top of the mat to get wet, if basement floor gets occasional dampness?
The rubber will not wick like concrete.
Would this Rubber Rolls be advisable and durable for Concrete Steps with more than 100 people using them everyday?
Yes only if the material is glued down.
My stalls r matted but I would like to cover them again with the rolled rubber mat for fewer cracks would this work .
Not so sure, if you glued the rolled rubber down to the existing rubber it would be best, but the rubber is only 1/2 inch thickness max and the horses really need 3/4 inch rubber.
How quickly can 1 roll ship?
This product features all of our thickness and color options, in the description we have several options listed with typical shipping out times.
is this mat good to apply on a bus floor
This could be glued down to the floor of a bus, but other products like a coin top PVC tile might be more durable over time.
I want to use this material as a mechanics floor mat, that is to lay on my back when working on the car and rolling it up when not in use. What type and thickness would you recommend?
This product is hard like a car tile, I think a foam tile would be better and more comfortable.
Would it work for a indoor dog room? They pee and pooh alot so it would have to tollerate that and cleaning of it all day.
Yes this product is used in dog facilities.
I would like to use this to put in the bottom of my dog crates . They come with plastic trays that crack and break to pieces in no time plus I think it would be more comfortable for my dogs . Would this work or what would you suggest . I will need it cut to size of my crates they are all large and xtra large.
Yes this would work, you can order a 4x10 ft roll with free shipping online and then cut the material as you need to fit.
can rubber flooring be installed over tile
Yes, in this case because of grout line, go with 3/8 inch thickness.
Would this work under restaurant equipment in a concession trailer
Perhaps, but its not rated for kitchen grease.
Would this flooring be recommended for a preschool indoor playground measuring 1872 sq ft in size?
Perhaps for a play zone type environment, where no fall height is needed. For fall height rated material please see our indoor playground category page.
I live in a condo. How well would this work for sound dampening under carpet and tile? I live in an older building and looking for options to make the folks below less likely to here me banging around. Glen
Hi Glen- Rolled rubber is a great sound dampener. Please contact a sales rep for the best product to fit your specific needs.

Rolled rubber is four feet wide by custom lengths of 15 feet and longer. It is not recommended for bathroom areas.
would this material @ 1/4'' thick be ok do use to cover a basement that has a concrete floor already?
That would depend on what the area will be used for. If you are covering a large area, we suggest a full glue down installation for the 1/4'' rolled rubber.
Would this provide proper cushioning for Zumba/Jazzercise-type classes?
This rolled rubber is designed to protect the sub floor from equipment and weights. It is hard, like a car tire. It does not offer cushion for your aerobic work outs. Contact us for recommendations.
Can this be used on walls and ceiling? Can you order thinner lighter mats?
We have customers that have used these on walls in horse stall applications or axe throwing businesses. We do not recommended applying them to a ceiling. The rolled rubber is made in 1/8'', 1/4'', 8 mm, 3/8'' and 1/2''.
Does this product need seam sealer for long lengths like 100 Lf. or more in a commercial application?
Seam sealing is not necessary and even discouraged.
Could this product be used as a mat for the back storage compartment of an SUV? Does it have a strong rubber odor? Can it be ordered as small as 4x4 sf?
