Rubber Tiles Rubber tiles are by far one of the most popular gym flooring options. You can choose between interlocking tiles, which look like puzzle pieces, or straight cut tiles, which look like squares in several thicknesses. You might be asking yourself, “How am I supposed to know what the thicknesses mean?” Great question! Let us break down each thickness to see what they are used for.
• 1/4” or 6mm – Made for basic home gyms and exercise rooms.
• 8mm – Very durable rubber for commercial and home gyms.
• 3/8” - Commonly found in commercial gyms
• 1/2” - Ultra durable rubber designed for extreme “use”.
• 1” - For Olympic lifts, dropping of heavy barbells and residential playgrounds.
Interlocking tiles are by far the easiest to install. Essentially, your floor becomes a giant puzzle and it’s your job to put the pieces together. Interlocking tiles are great over flat subfloors such as concrete or plywood. Straight cut tiles can be installed in various ways. Some straight cut tiles can be installed with dowels (little pegs used to connect them together). This is similar to Ikea furniture. Others may require glue or double sided tape. Straight cut tiles are great over plush carpet or uneven surfaces. Whatever way you choose, your floor will look virtually seamless and very professional.
Rubber rolls are great for easily covering large areas. Available in several thicknesses, all of our rubber rolls are 4' wide with many options that can be custom cut to your desired length. For lateral movement exercises such as P90X or Insanity, rubber rolls are preferred. Lateral movements can move interlocking tiles, which can create a trip hazard working out. And no one wants that. So now that you have chosen rolls for your gym, now you are wondering what thickness will work for you?
