Floor comfort is often overlooked in commercial business settings. For most businesses, the floor is simply a given part of the area that people stand on and don’t give much attention to. This should not be the case, as the condition of the flooring in an area can have significant consequences for the well-being of your business. The Rubber Flooring Experts can provide a simple, cost-effective flooring solution in the form of soft rubber matting to improve the quality and comfort of the floors of your business. Soft mats made with rubber provide fantastic floor comfort and fall protection in public playgrounds, commercial gyms, and restaurants. Squishy and supple rubber surfaces can provide safety on playgrounds, comfort in work-areas, and floor protection for fitness rooms. At the same time, it serves to lessen the effects of discomfort that results from the prolonged standing on employees working in kitchens, workstations, or assembly lines. Now is the time to invest in soft rubber flooring that is affordable, has all-weather durability, and offers easy installation for all of your flooring needs.
The most common types of flooring are wood, concrete, tile, or asphalt. These are all very hard surfaces that provide zero comfort for people standing on them. Worse yet, they can be very unsafe because they do not offer any traction to prevent fall-related accidents, nor do they provide any cushioning to minimize injuries from such accidents. Ultimately, this means that areas with such types of flooring are unsafe. No business should have unsafe conditions for either its employees or its customers. The rubber material used to make our soft mats can help to either greatly reduce or outright eliminate the hazards of these flooring types. Rubber is a far safer material to walk on than wood or concrete could ever hope to be. This is due in large part to the nature of the rubber, which possesses a very high level of friction on its surface. This friction reduces the chance of people from slipping and falling, preventing fall-related accidents rom occurring. Whether it is used as soft playground flooring or gym flooring, our rubber flooring products provide the kind of anti-slip traction that is vital for keeping people safe on their feet.

Our soft rubber flooring brings another very important benefit to the area: anti-fatigue comfort. Soft mats are meant to be comfortable to stand on. As previously mentioned, if someone is standing for prolonged periods of time on a hard surface like concrete or asphalt, that person is bound to become uncomfortable. Tension and pressure eventually build up in the feet, ankles, legs, and lower back, developing into fatigue. Joints and ankles in the feet can be especially vulnerable to discomfort and can lead to serious health problems. For a business whose employees become less productive due to discomfort and fatigue through their shift, a hard and uncomfortable floor can prove to be a significant liability. Soft rubber flooring can help relieve the physical pressure that hard floors exert on people's feet, reducing the amount of fatigue that they develop. By itself, rubber is an elastic and forgiving material that places little to no strain on people's feet. When produced into the form of soft and cushioned floor matting, rubber comfort mats often contain air pockets that provide further cushioning, resulting in a very comfortable surface to stand on. These rubber soft mats allow for an enhanced level of foot comfort that is great for keeping people happy, comfortable, and productive.
Consider some common examples of how our soft rubber flooring products are used, specifically playgrounds and gyms. Soft playground flooring is made from a flexible and elastic rubber material, as is rubber gym flooring. By forming a protective layer of rubber between unforgiving floors and the human body, soft mats are able to offer premium protection for bodily joints. In the case of gym flooring, the cushioning from soft rubber flooring also minimizes the strain of heavy equipment on the floor. Just as gravity causes the floor to place great strain on people's feet, it also causes gym equipment to place great strain on the floor, potentially marring it. But likewise, just as the softness of rubber flooring provides a layer of cushioning that protects people's feet from the floor, soft rubber flooring also provides cushioning that minimizes the impact of gym equipment on the hard floor. By preventing long-term physical fatigue, possible injuries, and damage to flooring from heavy equipment, rubber mats provide the best floor covering available.
Rubber flooring is also extremely durable and weather resistant. Our soft playground flooring is made of recycled rubber tire crumb. As this is an inherently durable outdoor material these rubber mats are UV ray, ozone, and water-resistant. They can be installed outside, or in harsh indoor environments, without a problem and will far outlast any other flooring option.
Some soft mats are made using eco-friendly recycled rubber. This type of rubber is harvested from vehicle tires. It is considered an environmentally conscious material because it helps to reduce non-biodegradable waste in the ecosystem. Recycled rubber, especially the type made from tire rubber, is very durable. Better yet for your wallet, the products that use eco-friendly recycled rubber are always more affordable than their synthetic rubber counterparts!
Our soft rubber flooring is also easy to install and is available in custom-cut flooring rolls and interlocking tiles. Both forms of soft rubber matting can be easily customized to fit the dimensions of any specific floor area. With a little trimming and a simple adhesive, soft rubber floors save you the cost of excess material and professional installation. This makes our rubber surfacing ideal for home gym floors and “do-it-yourself” craftsmen! Find a cost-effective flooring solution that suits applications of all types.
