Gym flooring has to be thick enough to protect the subfloor, which will be made from concrete or screw-fixed plywood.
It’s also good practice to install a layer of insulating rubber ‘underlay’ between the topper and subfloor for extra protection, although some gyms skip this step to save money (in our opinion, underlay is worth it in the long run). The thickness of gym flooring depends on the topper. For instance, you can get rubber matting that is 12mm thick and rubber tiles that are 40mm thick. The correct thickness is a matter of intended use and application.
Flooring for free weights
Free weight zones should have a flooring system consisting of 30mm or 40mm rubber interlocking floor tiles and a high-performance underlay, which is normally 5mm to 10mm thick. You use interlocking tiles so you can replace them when needed.
Flooring for treadmill zones
Treadmill zones can make use of standard rubber matting or polyurethane flooring that is 10mm thick so long as weights are not allowed in the area. These zones have a harder floor to support machines. We also recommend treadmill isolation pads.
Flooring for HIIT and pilates
HIIT and pilates zones should make use of either rubber matting that is 20mm thick or rubber tiles that are 30mm thick. Alternatively, you can carry over the flooring system from the free weight zone because this works fine.
Flooring for deadlift zones
Deadlift zones need the thickest gym flooring. You’re looking at 80mm thick impact protection slabs in addition to the normal flooring system. These slabs are designed to offer fall-impact protection with the heaviest weights.
Flooring to dampen sound
There’s nothing more annoying than a noisy gym. You can dampen sound from dropped weights with an insulating underlay so the topper can compress into it. Underlays can be as thick as 10mm and work great for dampening sound.
Flooring for running tracks
Running tracks can be made from rubber, polyurethane or hardwood. Thickness is not so much a consideration here but rather the quality of the topping. The surface has to provide fantastic grip while absorbing impact to reduce fatigue.
Gym flooring can be as thick as 80mm in deadlift zones and as thin as 10mm in sled and track zones. When considering thickness, think about the intended use case of the surface and the potential for surfaces to be used incorrectly.
