The treadmill is America’s go-to piece of cardio fitness equipment. Treadmills, stationary bicycles, and stepper machines are often found in abundance in home gyms and local health clubs. Treadmills are one of the more effective pieces of exercise equipment available. These machines are great for exercising your cardiovascular system, ensuring that your heart and lungs are functioning at full capacity. However, there is no denying that treadmills are heavy pieces of equipment. Without heavy-duty treadmill mats in place, all of this equipment can be difficult to keep in working order, especially when they are used on hardwood, vinyl, or concrete floor surfaces. The Rubber Flooring Experts offer a solution to this problem with rubber mats for treadmills. Our treadmill mats are impact resistant, shock absorbent, and affordable.
Rubber treadmill mats will absorb shock and vibration, a feature that your neighbors are sure to appreciate! If you imagine a functioning treadmill, you will more than likely be able to envision the fast humming of the treadmill belt accompanied by the steady pounding of active running feet. This is the classic image of a treadmill. However, a treadmill also emits vibrations while in use. If the treadmill is in direct contact with an unprotected surface, these vibrations pose a very real risk of cracking damage to the floor. Heavy-duty treadmill mats provide a layer of separation between the underside of the treadmill and the floor. Rubber happens to be a perfect material for absorbing shocks from the kinds of repeated physical impacts and vibrations that are typical of treadmills. This shock absorbency makes rubber an excellent choice of material for treadmill mats.

By dampening vibrations and absorbing heavy impact, heavy-duty treadmill mats can protect both the treadmill and the floors from wear and damage. Flooring surfaces such as wood or tile are particularly fragile, and can easily get cracked from the heavy weight of the machine without protective treadmill mats in place. Damage from the machine's weight can be aggravated even further if the treadmill is running with a person on top of it.
The repeated impacts and vibrations gradually cause chips and cracks to widen, making the floor more expensive to repair with time. Of course, the floors of an exercise area are not the only things that run the risk of getting damaged. The treadmill's impacts and abrasions can cause the machine itself to suffer from harm as well. Fitness equipment is very expensive, and the cost of repairing or replacing a treadmill is enough to ruin any gym owner's day. Our mats for treadmills provide the perfect buffer zone between the machine and the floor, as the rubber material dispels any shocks or vibrations to ensure that the treadmill and the floor do not harm each other. Your treadmill will last longer and require fewer repairs when placed on top of treadmill mats made with a naturally elastic, flexible, and supportive material like rubber.
Rubber mats for treadmills can also help reduce the overall noise of the workout area. It is normal for treadmills to emit a lot of noise simply due to their very nature. Because a treadmill tends to vibrate and shake while in use, the constant vibrations produce constant sound. Unfortunately, this noise can end up irritating your neighbors. Since rubber excels at absorbing vibrations, including sound, heavy-duty treadmill mats made from rubber are very effective at reducing noise from exercise equipment in use. Additionally, rubber treadmill mats provide a much softer surface for the treadmill to be on. Rubber's ability to absorb vibrations is partly due to its soft texture. A treadmill makes more noise when placed directly on a hard surface, but tends to make less noise overall when on a softer surface like rubber. Our rubber treadmill mats reduce the amount of sound that gym goers produce during a workout, allowing them to exercise on treadmills and other equipment without disturbing others.
Heavy-duty treadmill mats are made extra thick to offer additional impact absorption where needed! When it comes to treadmill mats, you want them to be as thick as possible. A lot of the matting’s protective qualities are related to how thick the individual mat is. The more thickness there is, the more material there will be for the best floor protection. With thick treadmill mats, there is simply more rubber material to absorb the physical impact and vibrations that come from treadmill machines. As a result, this makes rubber mats suitable for use in those 2nd or 3rd story installations. Keep your neighbors happy and keep on running with one of our extra thick rubber mats that will help you stay fit and keep the conveyor belt turning!
Our line of treadmill mats is durable and abrasion resistant, allowing them to last longer. Even though rubber is a softer surface when compared to concrete or tile, it still possesses enough durability to endure physically abrasive conditions. Some of the mats for treadmills offered by us contain recycled tire crumb rubber. This is a great rubber material when it comes to durability. Vehicle tires are designed to operate in hard and unforgiving conditions, and this durability is passed on to the products that are made from recycled tire crumb, such as our treadmill mats. Due to their longevity, recycled rubber treadmill mats do not need to be replaced as frequently, making them a worthwhile investment for any gym or fitness center.
