By Lisa Hobbie Created: April, 2020 - Modified: November, 2023

Finding slip resistant flooring for a locker room setting is likely one of the most important aspects in planning for a safe and effective space. Any time you have an environment where high traffic and water mix, the potential of a fall and/or injury almost always exists.

Greatmats provides a number of locker room flooring solutions that can minimize the risk, however. Each of these solutions are among the best on the market, as they combine unmatched quality and value and provide a level of protection and safety for the area used frequently after football, hockey and baseball practices and games as well as before and after using swimming pools. These products will not only serve well in the locker area, but also for shower and bathroom floors in the locker room.

Best Options for Shower Room Areas

These are the best floor tile and mat options for shower room areas and other areas where the floor can be wet and slippery such as a locker room at a pool or aquatic center.

Interlocking Patio Tile

Slip Resistant Slate Locker Room Flooring
Patio Outdoor Tiles make for an excellent locker room flooring option. Their non slip surface texture is comfortable on the feet and the tile design allows water to free flow through them and quickly drain away from them, which means there will never be standing water on top of them. Not only does this provide a safe surface, but it helps prevent the growth of mold and mildew. They are non-absorbent, providing a durable surface even when wet. These square PVC tiles are fast and easy to install on any flat surface without need for special adhesives. They come with a 1-year limited warranty.

StayLock Tile

When thinking about locker room flooring, options that allow for premium drainage are important. One option that really performs well is the StayLock Perforated Tiles. They are made from super durable PVC material, which provides anti-fatigue benefits and provides for traction and comfort - even when barefoot or when the surface is wet. The tiles are connected with a loop-and-tab system that will not loosen or separate. They are made in the USA, come in a variety of colors, and are waterproof. If you want high quality at an affordable price, this is it!

Ergo Matta Tile

Slip Resistant Slate Locker Room Flooring
The Ergo Matta PVC Plastic Tile is another great locker room flooring option as it helps to protect against falls, thanks to the 20-inch fall height rating. This flooring is made from recycled materials and can be installed on any hard surface. It’s perfect for areas like locker rooms where traffic volume is relatively high and stability under foot is a necessity. The tile is available in numerous brilliant colors and easy to assemble with its interlocking design. It’s super easy to clean with a damp mop and common household cleaner, and it comes with a 5-year, limited warranty.

Heronrib Wet Area Safety Matting

Slip Resistant Slate Locker Room Flooring
If you are looking for mats instead of tiles, consider the Heronrib Wet Area Safety Matting. The mat is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal to improve hygiene in the locker room. The open grid design allows water to drain through to provide a safer surface in wet areas. Plus, it is slip resistant but comfortable to walk on in bare feet. It is available in a variety of colors to match your aesthetic.

Changing Room Flooring Options

For sports changing rooms and locker room areas where a wet floor isn't the primary concern, rubber flooring is a popular choice as it provides traction and absorbs noise. Other flooring options can also work well.

Spectation Gym Floor Tiles

For a rubber tile option, consider our Spectation Gym Floor Tiles. This floor combines classic design with high quality and dependability. This locker room flooring tile is spike-resistant making it an excellent choice for changing rooms at ice arenas. The surface is non-porous making it easy to clean. It also features shock absorption properties.

When considering all of the aspects needed for a locker room, it can be overwhelming and distracting to think of all of the options. It’s imperative to focus on the necessities, however. A locker room needs to be safe, clean, and comfortable. The flooring must also fit the building’s aesthetics while combining slip resistance with ease of maintenance. People are most comfortable in areas that appear to be maintained and kept clean.
