For commercial gyms and health clubs, our Geneva Rubber Tiles are an excellent flooring option. This durable, commercial grade, interlocking rubber floor tile is available in thicknesses from 1/4 to 1/2 inch in a 3×3 ft tile size. All the tiles in this series are center tiles with interlocking tabs on all four sides.
Typically used to protect the floor from exercise equipment such as treadmills or stationary bikes, rubber flooring is also the top choice for most facilities for keeping the floor safe from free weights. Rubber is a hard surface that can take a beating. However, please note that if you’re looking for a soft surface for aerobic activities, you would probably be happier with a softer product such as foam or one of our modular tiles.
In most scenarios, a rubber tile thickness of 8mm is sufficient protection for your floors. For walkways and areas where there won’t be weights dropped, you can usually get by with 1/4″ rubber. However, if you are looking at an area where heavy weights (100 lbs or more) are going to be dropped repeatedly, you will want to go with a thicker option. 1/2″ rubber is usually the choice for those situations.
This interlocking rubber flooring tile option is an excellent choice for large scale commercial projects for a couple reasons. It is easier to install rubber tiles than rubber rolls. They aren’t as heavy and do not require a glue or tape-down application because the interlocking edges will keep the floor solidly together. Over time, the seams between tiles will actually begin to fade to the point where they become very hard to see. These tiles are better than our smaller 2×2 tiles for larger installations because fewer tiles means less installation time and fewer seams..
The Geneva rubber floor tile series is our stocked line of 3×3 ft interlocking rubber floor tiles in standard colors and thicknesses, choose 8 mm for the best value. It is only one millimeter thinner than 3/8″ tiles but is less expensive and you will not notice a difference in the performance of the product.
Because the interlocking design for the Geneva series of rubber floor tiles is a universal interlock design, you can spin the tiles in any direction and attach them to another tile. This is particularly helpful when trying to piece the final few tiles in on a wall-to-wall installation. Universal interlock tiles usually yield the least amount of material waste. You can easily cut these rubber tiles for a custom wall-to-wall installation in your home gym or in large scale commercial installations.
To determine how many tiles you need, measure the walls in your room. Enter those dimensions in our convenient online floor planner and it will calculate the tile count for you. If you’d rather, give one our representatives a call and we can help you to decide how many rubber floor tiles to buy.
Geneva floor tiles are available in six colors. They are made in the USA of recycled content.
