Home gyms, workshops, makeshift laundry rooms…there are lots of ways to use your garage. Regardless of how it’s used, it is very important to make sure that the garage area is in good working order. One way to ensure that your garage is safe is by making sure that it has the right type of flooring. You can be forgiven for thinking that the usual concrete in your garage is a safe and comfortable flooring material. Concrete may look durable, but it is far from a suitable flooring option. No other type of flooring in a garage beats the strength, comfort, and easy installation process of rubber garage flooring. If you’re looking for multi-purpose floor protection, the Rubber Flooring Experts offer rubber flooring rolls, mats, and tiles for a wide variety of applications perfect for use in garages.
Most of our rubber garage floor products are made from natural, recycled, or reclaimed rubber. This makes them sustainable and “Green” flooring products. Designed for rough and abrasive applications, rubber flooring for garage floors will survive through the rigors of excessive moisture, heavy equipment, and all foot-traffic conditions. Rubber floors made from recycled tires are especially UV and ozone resistant, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. One thing that is especially useful in regards to rubber is its ability to resist moisture. While excessive levels of moisture can cause mold and mildew to develop, a rubber garage floor will prevent that from happening. Rubber prohibits the presence of microbial agents. In this way, rubber garage flooring will help to keep the area safer and healthier.
The great thing about rubber is that it is a very durable material. Recycled tire rubber is a particularly tough kind of material. It is made mostly from vehicle tires. Tire rubber is made to be physically durable for all different kinds of conditions. Continue Reading Below
This trait is passed on to the rubber garage flooring products that they go into making. In a garage, you will want an increased level of longevity against physical harm because such areas tend to see heavy objects and lots of activity. Rubber flooring for garage floors acts as a rugged shield for the existing floors against objects that may cause damage. Cracks in concrete can be very expensive to repair, so having rubber on top of it will help to save you any future repair costs. You can even protect heavy storage equipment from hard concrete surfaces with the help of a flexible protective rubber surface.
Rubber garage flooring also offers comfort and anti-fatigue cushioning which can alter the profile of concrete to a warm and hospitable floor. Rubber is a naturally elastic material, so that a rubber garage floor can easily absorb shock and vibration. Anti-fatigue comfort is a very important quality to have in any floor. The garage is a portion of the house that can see a lot of physical activity. When people stand or walk around for extended periods of time, they tend to suffer from fatigue in their feet and lower back. Rubber garage flooring can help prevent that due to it’s inherent elasticity. The material helps to relieve pressure and fatigue that builds up in the sensitive joints in your body. Place rubber flooring in your garage to prevent physical strain while you stand in your workshop or exercise in your home gym.
Our rubber flooring for garage floors can be installed by almost anyone. Purchase flooring according to the dimensions of your garage to make installation easier and more cost effective! Instead of hiring professional installers or dealing with excess material, buy rubber floors in custom-cut rolls or interlocking tiles for an easy “Do-It-yourself” project. Interlocking tiles have become a very popular flooring choice lately. When it comes to installing rubber garage flooring, it does not get any more DIY than interlocking tiles. They lock into each other thanks to either connector pins or border designs. The benefit of interlock matting is that they are very portable and can be moved from one area to another as you see fit.
