TILES & ROLLS AVAILABLE
Gym tiles are the most versatile gym flooring solution. With the right underlay to control elasticity and acoustics, tiles can be used in free weight and functional fitness zones and as a single flooring solution throughout a gym.
Another benefit to gym tiles is they are available in a variety of colours. We are a leading supplier of SPORTEC® gym tiles which are available in over 12 different colours, including black with coloured flecks and coloured with black flecks. This allows us to design floors that match the branding and colours of your gym.
Tiles are available in thicknesses of 30mm or 40mm and the addition of high-performance underlay allows us to change how the tiles perform. We can design floors that absorb heavy impacts in free weight zones and floors that provide cushioning underfoot for fitness zones.
Gym tiles are simple to install, although some prep may be needed for the subfloor. We offer a complete design, supply and installation service.
Gym tiles are one of our areas of expertise. Tiles are a versatile flooring solution because they can be used in any area of a gym. The key is to choose the right thickness and underlay so that the flooring system provides adequate performance.
Tiles also have the benefit of being replaceable one tile at a time. This means if one tile gets damaged, the whole floor doesn’t have to come up. This will save you money in the long run and make maintenance much easier.
We are a leading supplier of SPORTEC® gym tiles which are available in black with coloured flecks, or grey, blue and red with black blecks. We also supply Uni-Versa tiles, which are the best choice for multipurpose sports areas.
We can recommend the right gym tiles for your gym with a phone consultation. Feel free to reach out to us for free advice.

SPORTEC® Style Edge and Corner Profiles are the perfect complement to our SPORTEC® Style Tiles. With its beveled edges, they provide a smooth and safe transition zone, reducing the risk of tripping when entering or leaving heavy weight areas.
Gym tiles come in two kinds: interlocking and non-interlocking. Interlocking floor tiles connect to each other while non-interlocking tiles are freestanding.
The preferred option in large commercial gyms is non-interlocking tiles. Simple square rubber tiles are cheaper and functionally they perform the same. There’s a small gap where the tiles meet each other. This is the only downside.
Interlocking tiles have no visible gaps between the tiles. They interlock with a snug, perfect fit. Some gym owners prefer this seamless look. Interlocking gym tiles also have the benefit of not trapping dirt so are easier to keep clean.
Gym tiles are always made from EPDM rubber, a resilient material used in industrial applications as a shock absorber. The floor tiles themselves are 30mm to 40mm thick with thicker impact protection slabs (70mm to 80mm) available for deadlift zones.
Most commercial gyms use rubber floor tiles in free weight areas with a harder surface like vinyl for cable machine and rowing zones. However, rubber tiles can be used universally across a gym in all zones due to their thickness. This makes them the most versatile flooring solution for gyms, and especially those that go heavy.
Gym tiles serve a single purpose: they protect the subfloor. This means they must be thick enough to compress under load without putting stress on the subfloor. This is achieved with a dual-layer system consisting of an underlay and tile top.
Commercial gym tiles are 30mm or 40mm thick. The specified thickness normally depends on what can be installed at the time. A thicker tile is not always better, since they are more expensive and may be overkill for some gym zones.
Free weight areas are best-served by thicker floor tiles. Powerlifting zones will need thicker impact protection slabs. These are also made from EPDM rubber. They are 70mm to 80mm thick and are installed over the existing gym floor.
With regards to underlay, this serves to protect the tile top which is more expensive. Under load, the tiles will compress into the underlay rather than the subfloor. This significantly improves sound and vibration absorption. If you want good acoustics in your gym, then we recommend a dual-layer flooring system for your gym.
