Rubber Floor Systems

Rubber flooring is a unique and versatile approach to commercial flooring. It offers a safe, washable, long-lasting flooring solution that meets the high demands of many different types of projects including hospitals, schools, gyms and commercial kitchens.

Rubber can be the ideal solution for areas with heavy foot traffic. It can also be a cushioning agent that reduces fatigue and foot injury.

Commercial Rubber Flooring Options

There are many benefits to rubber flooring, so how do you know which type is best for your project? Depending on your project, you’ll likely end up with one of these three rubber floor systems:

Rubber Floor Tiles
Rubber floor tiles are best suited for commercial facilities that would like to implement a floating floor. These tiles are designed to be loose laid, and without the need of adhesives or double-sided tape – making them the perfect option for floating floors.

Rubber Floor Rolls
The installation of rubber floor rolls is similar to traditional rolls of broadloom carpeting. Both can be installed directly over an existing subfloor using either tape or glue adhesives.

Rubber Floor Mats
If you’re looking to cover a large space but you don’t want to install a permanent solution, rubber floor mats might be the answer. These mats can be used at entrances to prevent slips and falls, as well as help to preserve the longevity of your flooring.

Each market and each project is unique and therefore there is no single flooring solution. To learn more about rubber floor systems or to request a quote, contact us here.
