Basement Gym Flooring
Many of our home gym flooring solutions are conveniently sized in the form of interlocking tiles or mats. They are designed for easy transportation and installation. This interlocking home gym tiles and mats cut down on the weight and awkwardness commonly associated with flooring installation by giving you modular sections of manageable size and often eliminated the need for adhesives and professional installers. Interlocking Home Gym Floors Installing home gym floors can be easy with our interlocking rubber tiles, foam tiles, gym floor carpets and plastic gym floor tiles. Interlocking home gym flooring options can be dry laid and cut to fit for any sized home gym floor space. They can be installed wall-to-wall or as island installations. They can be custom cut to go around pillars or other room obstacles. Interlocking home gym floors can also be removed as easily as they are installed. Folding and Roll Out Gym Floors Even easier are rollout or folding mats. They cover much larger areas, leave fewer seams and some can be laid down in a matter of seconds. Connect multiple mats together using tape or hook and loop connectors to cover large areas. Most of these gym mats come in 4-6 foot widths and lengths of 8 feet and longer. Rollout and folding home gym mats, however, may be harder to customize to your space depending on the construction method and material. Folding Mats are made of a vinyl wrapped foam core which should not be cut. Roll out mats and flooring can be made of foam or rubber. Foam versions feature either a carpeted or vinyl surface. Rubber rolls are significantly, thinner, heavier and much harder. Choose a rubber home gym floor for heavyweight equipment. Soft and durable foam floors are better for aerobic, less weight bearing home gym exercises and exercises where body-to-floor impact is common, including jumping, throwing, tumbling, falling, etc. In weight rooms where heavy weights will be used, rubber flooring is a better choice for both impact absorption and durability. Rubber Home Gym Flooring Rubber tiles, mats and rolls of rubber for home gym floors are popular for customers who need a durable floor to use under heavy weight equipment and free weights. This gym flooring will last for years and is backed by 1-10 year warranties. This form of flooring provides excellent impact absorption, protecting your subfloor from dropped weights and easing some impact on bones and joints from unforgiving concrete surfaces. Rubber flooring tiles are available in all black, black with color fleck, and in full-color rubber flooring tiles. Black rubber is made from recycled rubber and is environmentally friendly. Color fleck options in 10 or 20 percent colors consist of ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) colored rubber material and are available in 2×2-, 3×3- and 4×4-foot squares as well as other interlocking tile sizes. Greatmats carries nearly all of the interlocking rubber tiles available on the market. Custom rubber flooring tiles are available for people looking to create a unique color design or a mix of more than one color. Interlocking tiles provide numerous options for custom colors. Tiles have a lower minimum order quantity than rolled rubber flooring materials. Custom color designs are a great way to achieve a unique color scheme in gym floors for home use. Rubber also provides excellent sound and thermal buffers, adding comfort to any otherwise cold, noisy or echoey space. Rubber rolls will cover larger areas with fewer seams. However, they do not offer as many thickness options and may require multiple layers if used under Olympic lifts where heavy weights will be dropped. Large rubber mats are a common solution for Olympic lifting areas. These mats are often about 4×6 feet in size and are available in various thickness. The thicker the mat, the more protection it provides against dropped weights. For most Olympic lifts, it is recommended that the rubber mats be at least 3/4 inch thick. (These mats are quite heavy and are more commonly used in commercial gyms.) Aerobic Home Gym Flooring For people who would like to do aerobic exercise on their floor, we recommend our high-density foam floor tiles or plyometric rubber rolls. These versatile aerobic flooring products work great for a home gym floor because they provide more cushion and fatigue relief than standard rubber can provide. Use plyometric rubber rolls for P90X (Power 90 Extreme) and free weight style exercise for more durability than foam tiles can offer. Our pebble top foam gym floor tiles are one of the highest density and most durable foam flooring options available. Great for aerobic exercises the tiles feature a non-slip surface and is one of the rare foam flooring options that can withstand the weight of exercise equipment. They are also double sided and reversible. Economical and Cushioned Foam Home Gym Flooring With endless design options and multiple surface texture options for each tile, foam home gym flooring is truly customizable. You can use our Floor Plan Designer online app to create an interesting and pleasing color design for a home gym floor. Two of our most popular products is our Premium 5/8-inch foam tile and 7/8-inch thick Home Sport and Play Mats. Priced at an excellent value, the 5/8-inch foam mats are great for kids’ playrooms, exercise rooms and home aerobic or floor exercise activities. Kids will love the bright color options and comfort level, while adults will be ecstatic with the ease of installation and cleaning. Home Sport and Play mats offer more impact absorption for home combat sport training and can be used for training while wearing shoes or boots. If your gym will be used for wrestling, martial arts, boxing or something similar, we also offer a large variety of cushioning foam home gym flooring customized to work best with your sport of choice. Some feature a no-burn tatami surface that is easy on skin. Others are scuff resistant and can accommodate shoes and boots. For extra cushion consider folding home gym mats, which can be connected together and/or folded in panels for a truly versatile temporary gym flooring option. Plastic Home Gym Flooring New to our home gym flooring tile in our lineup is the StayLock modular floor tile. This soft PVC tile is designed to offer a durable, yet cushioned, floor in designer colors. StayLock tiles are available in bump top or orange peel surface texture. The bump top surface texture will provide more fatigue and cushion relief for aerobic activities while the orange peel surface features a smoother look and feel. Because of the plastic material, this home gym flooring tile is non-absorbent and features an elevated sub-structure, making it a great fit for damp basements or other areas where moisture can be a challenge. Our modular StayLock Tile provides cushion and durability in home gym floors that is also great for a multipurpose area. The variety of colors offered for these gym floor tiles ensure they will fit your design needs. Installation Interlocking floor tiles do not require glue or tape for installation and can be picked up to be moved or cleaned. Once dry, quickly reinstall interlocking tiles in the same or new space. Cut the rubber, foam or plastic interlocking tiles for wall-to-wall installation of home gym floors using nothing more than a utility knife and a straight edge. Remember to always measure twice and cut once. Need Assistance? Our professional customer service team can help you develop home gym floor ideas and plans for your installation.
