SUPPLY & INSTALLATION
TILES & ROLLS AVAILABLE
We are a leading supplier of home gym flooring systems, including rubber floor gym tiles and rubber flooring gym rolls. We only supply leading brands like SPORTEC® and our close links in the trade ensure we get the best possible prices. Whether you’re converting a garage or a room in your house, your gym needs a robust floor to protect the subfloor and provide a safe workout.
For home gyms with free weights and benches, we recommend using SPORTEC® rubber floor tiles that are 30mm to 40mm thick. These are available in a variety of colours and they are the same products used by commercial gyms. Rubber gym flooring rolls are another option, although these are best suited to large spaces and they are not as suited to free weight areas.
Your floor should be thick enough to protect the subfloor while also being low-maintenance and easy to clean. EPDM rubber is the best material – it matches all these characteristics and it’s relatively affordable per square metre.
Our experience in the gym flooring industry enables us to source the best-quality flooring at the best prices. Also, we specialise in building home gyms and can transform any floor into a surface that’s capable of taking any punishment.
Whether your floor is made from concrete or floorboards, we will design a floor that meets your workout requirements. This may involve reinforcing the floor with boarding so that the subfloor is adequately protected.
We supply rubber floor tiles, interlocking floor tiles, rubber roll flooring and specialised underlay for home gyms. Most home gyms will need a 2-layer system comprised of a performance underlay and rubberised top surface. 2-layer flooring systems provide more protection to the subfloor and are safer to use.

There are two main types of home gym flooring: rubber rolls and rubber tiles. Both are made from EPDM rubber. The key difference between them is thickness: rubber tiles are up to 40mm thick while rubber rolls are up to 15mm thick.
If you have a concrete subfloor, you can use rubber rolls or tiles over the top. We recommend a 10mm minimum thickness for rolls. If you have a timber or ply subfloor, you should use rubber tiles. Subfloors made from plyboard / timber require extra protection. Tiles provide this. You can get tiles 30mm thick or 40mm thick to suit the types of activity you do.
In any case, the subfloor needs to be level. Your home gym might also benefit from a mid-layer consisting of underlay to protect the subfloor. Also consider that board subfloors have a lower load threshold than concrete. You should make sure a board subfloor is load rated before building a home gym.
The heavier your workouts, the thicker your floor should be. For example, if you have a bench and heavy weights, you will need to use 30mm or 40mm floor tiles. If you only have a treadmill and light weights, you can use rubber rolls.
For most home gyms, rubber rolls will be the best solution. You can get rubber rolls up to 25mm thick if you need it. Most home gym floors are only 15mm thick. This thickness will be sufficient so long as you don’t throw dumbbells around.
Rubber rolls are the cheapest home gym flooring solution. They are ordinarily supplied in 10m lengths, but smaller lengths are available. The widths range from 1200mm to 2000mm so you can create a seamless, gapless gym floor.
Rubber tiles are more expensive to buy and install than rolls. The premium is typically 15% for materials. However, they have the advantage of being replaceable one tile at a time. This will come in handy if you accidentally damage the floor.
When it comes to home gym flooring, rubber rolls and rubber tiles have their place. Most home gyms will benefit from rubber rolls the most. Rolls are more affordable, and they offer sufficient protection from everything but extreme workouts.
If both floor materials are an option, your preference may come down to which you prefer the look of. Tiles have gaps but are available in a wider range of colours. Rolls are seamless. Which do you prefer – seamless or colourful? The choice is yours.
