The Lowdown on Our 3 Bestselling Gym Tiles

Selecting the correct Gym flooring for your own specific requirements can be challenging.  There are a plethora of products on the market and it can be difficult to choose which product matches your needs as they come in various materials, sizes and thicknesses and at varying price margins.

 

 

In this article we look at the key benefits of using rubber flooring as a fitness floor solution and discuss our 3 Bestselling Gym tile products which accommodate multi-functional fitness spaces at all levels of fitness.

What are the benefits of Rubber Flooring in a Gym space?

Rubber flooring is well known for it's shock absorption properties as well as being easy to maintain, is compatible with all temperatures and weather conditions and does not absorb moisture.  This makes it the perfect material for gym equipment, fitness clothing and footwear and as a floor solution.  Let's look at these benefits for rubber flooring in closer detail.

Highly Protective

Shock absorbency is essential for protecting ligaments and preventing injury while working out.  Rubber has excellent anti-shock values and has a naturally non-slip surface making this the perfect material for fitness use.

 

Reduces Sound

Rubber is an insulator and reduces sound made from repeated weight dropping and noisy equipment.  This is especially important in spaces such as Garages where you want to insulate the area and prevent noise from disturbing neighbours and other family members.

 

Easy to Maintain 

In a fitness environment you require surfaces which can easily be sanitised from perspiration after use.  Rubber tiles are moisture resistant and can simply be wiped or lightly mopped down without concern about water ingress or damage. 

 

Simple to Install

Rubber tiles are very easy to fit without a specialist installer.  The recommended method is using compression which means you do not require adhesive.  This is carried out by slightly overlapping the heavy tiles together then knocking them into place.  The tiles retain their position and do not move around.  Similarly, there are interlocking options which use hidden inserts. Watch a quick Tutorial below.
