TVS Gym Flooring specialises in providing high quality rubber gym flooring for use in commercial health clubs, weightlifting gyms, strength and conditioning facilities, public leisure centres, boutique fitness studios and multi-use games areas in schools and colleges as well as solutions for your garage or home. Materials are highly resilient, durable and simple to maintain.
TVS also helps health club operators to overcome unwanted noise and vibration issues in gym environments by providing highly specialised acoustic solutions. Examples include: anti-vibration pads for treadmills; impact absorbing isolation rings for gym equipment; and spring jack- up floating floors for free weight areas. Acoustically-engineered elastic layers or shock pads can also be combined with performance surfaces, providing additional protection to the structural slab while further reducing the transmission of impact forces into the building structure.
Floor finishes need to be practical and fit for purpose. However, aesthetics also play an important part in the member experience at fitness clubs and are therefore a crucial element in gym design. That’s why TVS offers a broad range of rubber gym tiles and gym rolls in a range of colours and in a variety of thicknesses. By varying the concentration and colour of EPDM granules contained within each product, designers can create floor schemes to complement the interior of any gym. Optimising the use of space is also important and a prowler lane is easily integrated into the floor plan.

Not only do we have access to the latest product releases, but we keep in stock most styles, allowing us to take on projects at short notice while offering a truly extensive collection.

When surfacing a commercial gym, rubber rolls and rubber tiles set the standard for protection, safety and longevity. But which is best? That depends on the intended use case, application and the cost of the product.
Rubber floor tiles are the best option for free weight zones and other high wear zones because they enable you to replace single tiles when needed. They are also thicker than rubber rolls, so provide greater protection to the subfloor.
Rubber rolls are the best option for functional fitness zones. Examples include zones with treadmills, cable machines and yoga areas. Rubber rolls are thinner than tiles and they are great for covering large surface areas quicky.
In most cases, rubber floor tiles are more expensive than rubber rolls. This is because they have a more intensive manufacturing process. For this reason, it’s a good idea to use tiles in areas that need them and rolls elsewhere.
You might, however, like to use tiled rubber gym flooring throughout your gym, if you cannot trust people to use the surface correctly. For example, if people tend to use weights in zones where they shouldn’t, a thicker floor may be better.
It’s also important to consider your members. One of the main reasons why people hop between gyms is because of the floor. Floors that aren’t nice to work out on turn people away, so it is a good idea to play to the crowd.
Rubber floor tiles are the standard in free weight and powerlifting zones while rubber rolls are the standard in other areas of a gym. If you play to the crowd and follow best practice, a lot of members will appreciate your gym more.
Both rubber tiles and rubber rolls are made from EPDM rubber. There is often no difference in the density of the materials, so their durability is largely the same. The key difference is thickness. Tiles are thicker, so they are a more durable product for free weight zones. Rolls are thinner, lighter and better for covering large areas.
Appearances matter in gyms. Rubber tiles have gaps where the tiles join, but the gap is so small that there’s no tripping hazard. Some gym owners prefer the seamlessness of rubber rolls, which have no joints or breaks.
Colour wise, both rubber tiles and rubber rolls are available in different colours. Most gyms choose black flooring with a coloured fleck, but you can get SPORTEC flooring that’s coloured throughout to match your gym’s branding.
Ultimately, you should choose rubber tiles for free weight areas and rubber rolls for functional zones and around machines, HOWEVER, you can use rubber tiles across your gym, so in terms of potential use cases, rubber tiles reign supreme.
Both types of rubber gym flooring can have seamless transitions between gym zones using edge profiles. These have bevelled edges. We can also use coloured borders to make a clear visual distinction between different gym zones and boundaries.
In addition, we can install markings on rubber rolls and rubber tiles, although rubber rolls are a better choice for markings because they are seamless (no gaps). Markings are a great way to create workout boxes and drill zones on your gym floor. They can also separate gym zones and provide visual warnings like ‘keep clear’.
