Options for Weight Room Flooring

When your favorite workout at home or at a fitness center involves weightlifting with free weights, you need the right weight room flooring. Proper weightlifting mats protect the subfloor while also cutting down on noise from the clanging of barbells and dumbbells.

Types of Weightlifting Mats

We have multiple formats for weight mats, simplifying the process of finding the right type for your particular needs.
  • Tiles: Tiles are extremely popular as weight room mats, as they allow you to create the precise coverage size that you want to use with an easy-to-install connection system.
  • Mats: Use weight room floor mats to create slightly thicker padding in certain areas of the room, such as underneath a weight bench.
  • Rolls: Weight lifting flooring consisting of rolls is perfect for creating an area for lifting temporarily, and you then can roll it back up for storage after the workout session.

Benefits of Weightlifting Mats

Weight lifting mats deliver multiple benefits for use at home or in a commercial facility.
  • Durability: Many of our products are made in the United States and offer multi-year warranties.
  • Eco-friendly: Many of our rubber weight room flooring products consist of recycled materials, keeping old tires out of the landfill.
  • Protective: Rubber padding for weightlifting protects the subfloor from damage when athletes drop their barbells or dumbbells.
  • Shock-absorbing: The force of dropping a barbell can create significant vibrations against a hard floor. Our mats absorb the shock and resist vibration.
  • Noise-absorbing: Cut down on the noise from clanging free weights with rubber barbell mats, avoiding disruptions to nearby locations.
  • Colors: Although most rubber flooring is black, we do offer many additional design options that are more pleasing to use, including multi-color flecks against a black background.

Where to Use Weightlifting Mats

You can use our weight room flooring in a wide range of locations, thanks to the large number of products we offer and thanks to the versatility that’s available.
  • Home gym: Create a workout space in a garage or basement with our tiles that can go directly over concrete.
  • Shared space gym: Holding weightlifting workouts inside a building where you are sharing space with other businesses can be disruptive to the entire building, but our rubber weight mats cut down on noise.
  • School gym: Because our mats are economical, it’s easy for schools to stay on budget when creating a weightlifting area.
  • Significant weight: If you are focusing on bodybuilding and competitive lifting with massive amounts of weight, our drop weight lifting mats can protect the subfloor with extra padding.
  • Temporary locations: If creating a weight training area in a temporary location, you don’t want to damage the subfloor. Thick mats deliver the desired protection.
  • Traction: Having a sure footing is key to weight workouts, providing the leverage you need to support the barbells. Our rubber weight training mats deliver all the traction you need.

Guidelines for Selecting Weight Room Flooring

When working with free weights that you will be dropping to the floor as part of the workouts, you need to match the thickness of the rubber weight lifting mats to the amount of weight they need to absorb.

  • Up to 120 pounds: Minimum 3/8 inch thick flooring
  • More than 120 pounds: Minimum 1/2 inch thick flooring
  • Intentionally dropped weights: Minimum 3/4 inch or 1 inch thick flooring
  • Maximum vibration and noise reduction: Minimum 2 inch thick flooring
