It should come as no surprise that the Rubber Flooring Experts specialize in one thing: durable rubber floors. Our flooring products are manufactured with natural or recycled and reclaimed rubbers, adopting the materials’ incredible durability and protective qualities. However, rubber’s versatility is the characteristic that makes our flooring products so incredibly useful for a variety of needs. Our natural rubber flooring products are available in vibrant light colors as well as earth tones, a break from the black color restriction that is commonly expected of rubber!
First of all, why do people choose to install rubber floors over their existing surfaces? Usually people think that hardwood, tile, and concrete floors will suffice for their area. Despite their apparent durability, these surfaces can be quite susceptible to damage. The cost to repair damage to materials like wood and tile can be very high. In many cases, the flooring may need to be replaced entirely. Not only does a damaged floor look ugly aesthetically, it can also be a safety hazard. Rubber floors, whether they are laid in the form of rolled rubber mats or rubberized floor tiles, are the perfect solution when it comes to protecting your existing surfaces.

Rubber’s physical durability makes it ideal for flooring-related applications. This is especially true if the rubber floors are made from recycled rubber, though natural rubber flooring is also a strong option. Recycled rubber is a remarkably durable kind of elastomer which is often created from old, worn-out vehicle tires. Rubber floors made from this cost-effective material demonstrate an impressive ability to shield your existing flooring from physical shock and harsh impacts, while also being durable enough to maintain their form.
Whether it is made from recycled or natural rubber, flooring that is made from either one is very comfortable to walk on. Rubber floors bring with them a superior level of anti-fatigue comfort that is hard to find in other types of flooring. The rubber material provides a softer and more forgiving surface to stand on than wood or concrete, thanks to its natural elasticity. After extended periods of standing or walking around, it is only natural for a person’s feet and lower back to get very sore and tired. Hard surfaces offer no relief from the built-up pressure in these areas of the body. Rubber floors, on the other hand, can help to alleviate that pressure. By using rubber flooring, you are ultimately ensuring a greater level of comfort for your whole body, not just your feet.
In addition to comfort, rubber floors can help keep you and your guests safe. This is thanks to the high coefficient of friction that is inherent in rubber. This friction provides the feet with a better level of grip. Anyone walking on either recycled or natural rubber flooring will experience more traction and stability, as their chances of falling are greatly reduced. The grip offered by rubber floors is useful no matter where you put them. If you have recycled or natural rubber flooring in your home, it will minimize the risks of slipping and falling. This is especially important in high-moisture areas, like bathrooms and kitchens. But rubber floors can be just as important in commercial of industrial environments, where a great emphasis is placed on safety.
Keep in mind that recycled rubber is an eco-friendly product. This is because recycled rubber is made from old vehicle tires. If the rubber tires were not repurposed in new products like rubberized floor tiles, rolls and mats, they would be rotting away extremely slowly in a landfill. By removing these tires from landfills, the environment can accommodate biodegradable waste instead of being littered with waste that will not break down naturally. This helps to make recycled rubber floors far more affordable options when compared to their synthetic counterparts.
Rubber flooring comes in many forms and our rubberized floor tiles are one of the most popular. These “Do-It-Yourself” puzzle-style tiles are designed for the average homeowner as well as for commercial gyms, retail buildings, and factories. The best aspect of rubberized floor tiles is that they are very simple to put into place, turning anyone into an installation expert! The rubberized floor tiles are much smaller than rolls, making them much easier to position without help. Different products carry different interlocking methods, but in most places, they can be locked together without messy adhesives. Rubberized floor tiles are also easily moved and extremely modular. This makes them very versatile, and perfect for use on a patio or in a garage, as well as indoors.
Our rubber floors also come in rolls, which is an extremely popular option. Rolls also provide a durable and protective flooring. In fact, rubber floors can hugely increase the life expectancy of your original surfacing by protecting them from damage and harm. Available in pre-cut and custom-cut lengths of up to 50 feet, rolled rubber floors are customizable products with a DIY design. Whether they are made with recycled tires, tough reclaimed rubber, or natural rubber flooring rolls, our products cover interior and exterior surfaces with a seamless rubber barrier to prevent weathering, water damage, dents, and other common problems that can affect your flooring surfaces.
The eco-friendly materials found in our rubberized floor tiles and rolled rubber floors are produced for a world of applications. Despite the wide range of uses, all recycled and natural rubber flooring will bring a superior level of safety, protection, and comfort to any underfoot surface of your choice.
