Gym Tiles Or Rolls For Commercial Gym?

What Are The Different Types Of Rubber Sports Flooring

Investing in flooring for your commercial gym is very important. Rubber tiles and rolls provide a durable surface that protect against impacts, while absorbing noise from weights being lifted overhead or other activities taking place nearby.

Besides being extremely resilient and durable, both gym tiles and rolls are non-slip and available in a wide variety of different colours. Your choice of one over the other will come down to the shape of your space and what kinds of activity you intend to perform.

Gym Rubber Tiles

Gym Tiles are great for fast installations, tiles click together and thicknesses can go up to 70mm.

Rubber tiles are interlocking tiles that you click together to form a floor. They are exceptionally easy to install and provide instant substrate protection. As with rolls, you cut the rubber tiles to fit the shape of the room.

A key advantage to floor tiles is they tend to be available in greater thicknesses than rubber rolls. Rolls are ordinarily used for light gyms. Floor tiles can be very heavy-duty, allowing you to powerlift and bounce weights off the floor. For example, we can supply tiles from 15mm to 70mm for general use.

Gym Rubber Rolls

Gym Rolls and great for large installations with very little waste with thickness from 4mm to 10mm.

As the name suggests, rubber rolls are sold in rolls and cut to length. This means there’s little waste on installation. The roll is fitted like carpet to the edges of a room, creating the look of a professional gym at home.

Since rolls are rolled out, they are quicker to install than tiles in larger spaces and you can cut the material to suit odd shapes like curves and corners. The downside to rubber rolls is they are heavy and require professional installation. They are also less suited to free weights because the thickness typically only goes up to 10mm.

Which one is right for you?

For free weight areas, we recommend rubber tiles since they are available in greater thicknesses (up to 40mm for regular tiles and 70mm for impact protection). Rubber rolls are a good choice for light gyms and machine areas. You can also use both types of gym flooring in your commercial gym to create a safe and functional floor.
