All our rubber gym flooring are commercial quality and impact/shock absorbant. The differences lie in the color and thicknesses options.
Quick-Ship Rubber Roll Flooring are heavy-duty rubber flooring rolls that protect floors from heavy weights and constant impact of machinery and exercise equipment and ship within 48 hours!
Our rubber rolls are manufactured here in the US from US-sourced components. They meet the strictest safety regulations on raw components, indoor air quality (IAQ) and are non-poisonous and thus safe to use around young children and pets.
Floorscore is made up of a product's VOC certification as well as the recycled content. We have those in two separate certifications from 3rd parties (GreenCircle for recycled content and Berkeley Analytical for VOC). We are happy to provide this documentation. A good article to find out more about these certifications is here: https://www.mychemicalfreehouse.net/2018/12/what-green-certifications-mean-for.html
Rubber Roll Matting is a dense rubber flooring, but can still be cut down with little effort - essentially, the rubber rolls can be cut using a utility knife with a fresh, sharp blade and a straight edge or T-square. (For larger, commercial jobs, some parts may even be cut down with a flooring tile cutter.) If using a utility knife, it will take several strokes of the knife. Mark the line to be cut and then score it with the blade before doing a deeper cut. Don't press too hard but just put some pressure on as you cut and, after a few strokes, you'll get a clean cut right through the rubber. A good trick to help make the cutting a little easier is to dip the blade into soapy water to help it glide with less friction. A hand saw (and especially a power saw) would be too fast and dangerous for cutting down the rubber flooring and could even prevent a straight cut edge.
Vacuuming will help remove finer particles of dust, debris, dirt, etc. from the rubber flooring. (Although not necessary but for a deeper cleaning, you can easily mop the all-rubber rolls with a mild detergent or a little soap and warm water. Simply let the rubber air dry and they'll be good to go.) However. sweeping and/or vacuuming should take care of virtually all of your day-to-day dirt and debris.
Rubber Roll Matting is manufactured here in the US from American-sourced raw materials. This rubber flooring meets the strictest safety regulations on both the finished product and the raw components as well as Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) ratings. Rubber rolls are not poisonous and non-toxic and therefore safe to use in both commercial environments as well as around kids and pets in the home.
Rubber Flooring Rolls can simply be loose laid over the existing flooring (as long as it's not a thick, plush carpet) without securing them with glue or tape if being used in a residential setting (regardless of the intensity of the workouts). For commercial facilities and spaces where heavy equipment may be dragged on the floor it would be most prudent to glue the rubber rolls to the floor.
Rubber Roll Matting can be used over compacted gravel without issue. The rubber will still hold up well and provide impact resistance and energy restitution. The rubber itself is slip-resistant, even when wet, and will provide for many years of use. Any snow, rain or salts dripping from a car or truck will not negatively impact the rubber rolls.
Certainly - desk chairs with wheels can easily roll across the surface of this rubber matting without difficulty and the wheels won't harm the rubber rolls.
1/4" thick rubber rolls weigh right around 1.3 Lbs per square foot; 3/8" thick jumps to about 2 Lbs per square foot and 1/2" thick rubber roll matting weighs in at approximately 3 Lbs per square foot. (The percentage of color, if present, can have a slight effect on the actual weight.)
Rubber Roll Matting is typically a little less expensive compared to interlocking rubber tiles like Fit-Lock Tiles, and allows you to cover large areas with less installation effort. For smaller/tighter spaces and areas that are not rectangular in shape, interlocking tiles make the process easier and quicker. The actual material and warranty are the exact same. Please note that these tiles are 2' x 2' in size whereas rubber roll matting is always 4' wide (and is cut down to whatever length is needed).
Certainly - Rubber Roll Matting can be implemented both indoors and outside and not be harmed by the rain, snow, wind or sun. Please note, however, that the rubber can expand and contract slightly in areas with more widely-ranging temperatures. Thus, if multiple rolls are being butted up again each other (and especially if not being placed under heavy equipment), it could be helpful to glue them down to prevent the expansion/contraction.
Yes! The rubber flooring is engineered to be mold and mildew resistant (due to the warm, sweaty environments they're often used in) and can safely be placed in basements, garages and other areas that might have exposure to moisture.
Rubber Roll Matting is safe to install over epoxy (as well as LVT, ceramic, concrete, marble, tile, terrazzo, laminate and many other surfaces) without it getting damaged or damaging the floor below.
These heavy-duty rubber rolls work great in a dogcare facility! The premium rubber is slip-resistant (even when wet) and easy to clean. Paws and fur won't get black from any rubber rubbing off regardless of how rough they play. For best results in this type of environment, we recommend using our Rubber Flooring Finish / Sealer to seal the rubber and make it completely non-porous for any accidents that may occur. Our Seam Sealer will make the small space between the rolls completely impervious to urine and any other liquids working their way below.
Yes, Rubber Roll Matting is heat-resistant and not negatively affected in any way by heated floors or if used in a very warm environment (including in a garage or outdoors on a hot day). (Please note, however, that if the matting is exposed to extreme temperature changes, it is possible that the rubber can expand slightly in very warm environments and contract just a little bit in colder settings.)
