The Rubber Flooring Experts’ line of commercial rubber flooring products are designed to fit a number of high-traffic applications and commercial settings. From public entryways and gym floors to restaurant kitchens, our long-lasting rubber floor coverings offer durable floor protection, anti-slip safety, and soft comfortable floors for a variety of businesses—all at affordable prices!
When foodservice kitchens, public bathrooms, and outdoor entrance areas are rife with moisture and slick spots, the results can be disastrous! Employees and customers can slip or fall on wet floors, seriously injuring themselves. Luckily, our commercial matting is made from natural, recycled, and reclaimed rubber materials. These water-resistant floor mats provide drainage and slip resistance qualities that will help to prevent accidents and injuries. Rubber is the ideal material to use for anti-slip flooring simply due to its physical composition. It is one of the few materials that comes with a naturally high coefficient of friction. This means that there is a certain level of resistance that feet and footwear encounter when moving across a rubber surface, such as the surfaces of our commercial rubber mats. This resistance prevents people's feet from moving unintentionally when standing on our commercial rubber flooring—or in other words, prevents people's feet from slipping and causing them to fall. Rubber's high friction makes our rubber matting products capable of providing the kind of anti-slip safety that is so beneficial to have in any type of setting. Anti-slip safety is highly important in commercial settings, where both employees and customers need to be safe from slips and falls while in the area. With slip related falls being one of the leading causes of injury—and in some cases, even death—in the country, rubber commercial matting is an easy to install and affordable way of ensuring the safety of everyone in the area.

In addition to protecting people from accidents, commercial rubber flooring acts as a durable and protective surface for existing floors in high-traffic areas. Made with resilient raw materials, our rubber commercial mats are tough enough to survive heavy foot traffic or similarly abusive conditions, such as in cross-fit gyms, and are a great cost-effective form of floor protection for any type of business. Many indoor floors are made of sensitive, rigid materials such as wood, laminate, or tile. While these materials may be visually pleasing, they can be brittle and do not make for the sturdiest types of floors. These floor types are often susceptible to physical damage like chips and cracks over time, as well as mold damage from excess levels of moisture. A damaged floor can negatively impact the impression that a business leaves on its customers. Damaged floors are very costly to repair and/or replace, sometimes prohibitively so. Having a protective layer of commercial rubber mats placed over an existing floor can safeguard the subsurface from potential harm.
Commercial rubber flooring can also bring anti-fatigue cushioning and comfort to an otherwise cold and hard floor area. In retail stores and commercial kitchens, employees are always on their feet. Usually, they are standing on uncovered floors like concrete or wood. These hard floors are bound to cause physical stress and fatigue on their feet and legs because they distinctly lack the kind of elasticity that comes with rubber. While the elasticity of our rubber matting products varies based on the specific product's thickness levels, they are still far more comfortable alternatives to stand on than hard flooring. Cushioned commercial matting made from rubber provides a soft surface to stand on and supports employees while they work. The soft nature of rubber can help to relieve built-up pressure in the soles, ankles, and lower back. This kind of anti-fatigue relief will lead to healthier, happier, and more productive work environments.
Rubber floors are especially ideal for outdoor pathways or playgrounds when made from recycled tire crumb. Commercial rubber flooring made from recycled tire rubber is especially weather resistant because of the nature of tires themselves. Tires are only made from the most durable types of rubber and are designed to operate in harsh, abrasive outdoor environments, from gritty asphalt to dirt-paved roads. This physical durability and abrasion resistance is transferred over to our commercial rubber mats, which can withstand outdoor conditions such as excess moisture from rain and other weather conditions, or high levels of UV and ozone. Thanks to these properties inherited from tire rubber, our commercial matting products can last a long time when used outdoors.
One very important feature about commercial rubber flooring made from recycled tire crumb is that it is eco-friendly! This is due to the nature of the recycled rubber itself. Recycled tire crumb is harvested from old vehicle tires that are no longer in use. Otherwise, these tires would be rapidly filling valuable space in landfills. Since tires are made to be durable, they take a long time to break down, and are ultimately nonbiodegradable. Luckily, we are beginning to reuse old tires for new purposes, such as in commercial rubber mats and flooring products. This allows us to take advantage of tire rubber's durability while reducing the volume of tires sent to landfills. You can take comfort in the fact that our commercial matting made from recycled rubber is environmentally conscious. By investing in our recycled commercial rubber flooring, you are supporting an industry that benefits the environment.
