Rubber Mat Flooring For Gym Floors

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

Whether you are planning on setting up a home gym in that spare room in your house or you are looking at building a commercial gym, the time will come where you will have to decide on the right type of flooring. This is where a good solid rubber gym flooring can be just the thing you need.

Why should you choose rubber flooring for your gym?

Durability.

Think about what is going to be happening in your gym. Heavy weights can get dropped accidentally, the large and heavy equipment sitting on your floors, a fair amount of traffic and people doing their exercises. All of this can take a tool on a regular floor. Think about how a wood floor would hold up….not very well in these conditions. Rubber makes an excellent durable floor that will take the abuse any gym application will serve.

Safety.

When you are working out on a piece of equipment, the last thing you need is for the weight bench or treadmill to be slipping around on the floor. Rubber flooring will keep everything in it’s place.

Exercise causes sweat which can make a floor weight in places. The last thing that you want to do is slip and fall while lifting 100 pounds of free weights. Luckily, a rubber floor will help your feet keep their grip on the floor either wet or dry.

Cost efficient.

Comparing with the cost of other types of floor that are actually quite inferior to this application, rubber gym flooring is easier on the pocket book in the long run since it is going to last for as long as your gym lasts.
