What Are the Best Interlocking Rubber Floor Tiles?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: April, 2020

When beginning a construction or remodel project, flooring most certainly tops the list of considerations. In terms of quality, durability, and versatility, one of the best flooring material options suitable for many applications is rubber.

Often popular choices for gym, basement, or garage floors, rubber provides excellent impact absorption while also being water resistant. Once rubber flooring is installed, it requires little maintenance, with a sweeping, vacuuming, or damp mop cleaning process, as needed. Rubber floors are stain, mold, and mildew resistant.

If the desirable characteristics of rubber interest you, you may consider interlocking rubber floor tiles for your home or commercial project. Greatmats offers an excellent variety, including the best interlocking rubber floor tiles for patio tiles, weight room tiles, and numerous options in between.

Interlocking Rubber Floor Tiles

For an interlocking rubber floor tile option for a home gym, basement, or garage, the 2x2 by 8mm tiles made in the USA are an excellent choice. These tiles are very easy to install and are designed to withstand the heavy weight of exercise equipment and constant foot traffic, and they also dampen noise.

The 8mm thickness provides for durable, long lasting surfacing, and they are simply to keep clean by sweeping and vacuuming. They offer a smooth but non-slip surface that will provide years of quality flooring.

Geneva Rubber Floor Tiles

Another interlocking rubber floor tile suitable for a home gym, basement, or garage, is the ⅜ inch Geneva tile with 10 percent color. These tiles present many of the same qualities of others, but may be a better choice for a basement setting with the lower rubber odor. Manufactured in the USA from recycled rubber content, these 3 x 3 tiles are 18 pounds so you can easily cover a large surface area in limited time.

They are waterjet cut and designed to stay put without curling or moving, and they also feature tighter fitting seams. Finally, with the colored flecks distributed throughout the tile, the unique look of this product presents a classy finish. If 10 percent color isn’t quite enough for your desired look, consider the Geneva tile with 20 percent color.

Interlocking rubber floor tiles designed for weight rooms are very heavy duty and tough. The floating floor tiles (not attached to the subfloor) are made to last and stand up to use and abuse of dropped weights and heavy equipment. These tiles are made in the USA of recycled rubber green products, and they are easy to install and maintain.
