Greatmats rubber flooring rolls TRX trainingUsage Ideas

  • Partial Floor Covering: Rubber roll per square foot can be used for island installations, meaning you’ll just place the 1/4 inch rubber in a portion of the room, rather than filling the entire room. This is a smart installation idea if you’re placing the product in a large rec room in a basement, where one part of the rec room has a seating area and another part has exercise equipment.
  • Wall-to-Wall Installation: You also could create a wall-to-wall installation in a basement area, covering the cement flooring with a durable type of flooring that will slow the cold temperatures from the cement floor from reaching your feet. And even though the rubber flooring is firm and tough, it will feel better to walk on than the cement floor. You can cut these rubber rolls to fit any installation area you need. We manufacture the 1/4 inch rubber flooring to within a width tolerance of 1/4 of an inch for the 4-foot width of the roll.
  • Exercise in the Garage: Another usage idea for this rubber mat is to roll out the mat on one side of your garage, while leaving the other side for storing your vehicle. You can then place exercise equipment over the rubber flooring on that side of the garage.
  • Create a Man Cave: Although the rubber material works especially well for exercise areas, you have a few other usage options too. You could lay out this 1/4 inch rubber mat in a basement or garage to create flooring for a man cave. Perhaps the cement flooring in the area is discolored or has cracks. The rubber flooring will cover those, helping you create a seating area that looks nice and will hold up to heavy Greatmats rubber flooring dog agility trainingusage.
  • Dog Training: Rubber flooring is a popular option for dog training and doggy daycares because it provides traction but is gentle on the paws when compared to cement. Any accidents from pets will not damage the floor, but messes should be cleaned up in a timely manner.

Regardless of how you will make use of the Rubber Flooring Rolls 1/4 Inch Black material from Greatmats, you can count on the high quality manufacturing and toughness of this flooring. Our 1/4 inch thick rubber is manufactured within a thickness tolerance of plus or minus 0.02 inches, which ensures you won’t have weak spots. Any weak or thin spots in the flooring – as you sometimes see with poorly-made rubber flooring – could lead to buckling or folding of the 1/4 inch rubber when it’s placed under pressure, leading to a failure of the product. That is not a concern with Greatmats products.

This rubber flooring offers a material hardness rating of Shore A 60, which ensures a firm and durable surface. Additionally, you can count on the quality of this Made in the USA flooring material, as it carries a 5-year limited manufacturer’s warranty.

Installation Options

Greatmats rolled rubber flooringRubber rolls are relatively easy to install. Lay the rubber rolls directly over concrete, ceramic tile, or any smooth, hard, flat surface. For a wall to wall installation, simply unroll the rubber roll and cut the lengths to fit using a straightedge and a utility knife as needed. Rubber rolls are factory cut with precision so they will lay side-by-side with no gaps between rolls. The ends of the rolls are not cut square and will require trimming during installation.

For installation, use double sided floor tape or adhesive to attach the rubber rolls to a clean, hard floor surface. When using a tape down method the rolls should be taped around the perimeter and at the seams. Rubber rolls can be dry laid in small installations under 400 SF. For large installations, a glue down installation may be required.

Cleaning Options

For a basic cleaning of these Rubber Flooring Rolls 1/4 Inch, you can sweep or vacuum it to remove dry debris. Some customers choose to sweep the flooring on a daily basis because of heavy usage, while others only need to sweep or vacuum once or twice a week.

For a more thorough cleaning of the 1/4 inch rubber mat, you can use a damp mop and a neutral pH floor cleaner. Don’t oversaturate the flooring. It can be allowed to air dry, although running a basic household fan in the area after the mopping will ensure the material to dries more quickly.

If you end up with excess water on the floor, either from using too much water while mopping or because of a spill, we suggest you remove the excess water with a wet/dry vacuum or with an absorbent towel.

Like all rubber flooring, this product does have a noticeable rubber smell that may last for several days after installation. Some people are more sensitive to this odor than others. If you’re installing the flooring in a room with limited air movement, you will probably notice the smell for a longer period of time after installation. A greater level of air movement over time will minimize the odor faster. You sometimes can minimize the odor by thoroughly cleaning the flooring with a mop and neutral pH floor cleaner immediately after installation. Read our blog about removing rubber odor for more ideas.

Please Note: Cut lengths for rolled rubber products are provided as a courtesy at no additional cost to customers. In some cases, the manufacturer may provide a cut length within two pieces of material. In other cases, the manufacturer may send material that is over or under the specified linear footage. In all cases, the manufacturer is required to supply the overall amount of material per order. It is common for rolled rubber jobs to have butt seams or cut end seams within one roll or run.

Neuman K-9 Academy – Dog Boot Camp

Outdoor Patio Tile and Interlocking Dog Agility Mats for moisture control

Neuman K-9 Academy in Hugo, Minnesota

By Brett Hart

Neuman K9 Academy Dog Training School with Greatmats Dog Agility FloorFighting the elements isn’t always the easiest thing to do in Minnesota. That’s why Josiah Neuman, owner and training director of the nation’s leading dog boot camp, designed a premiere 3,600 square foot climate-controlled all-weather training area when he moved his 20-acre St. Peter training facility, Neuman K-9 Academy, onto 10 acres of pristine wilderness in Hugo, Minn., in late 2011.

”I’ve been training dogs professionally since 2007 (when he became a Certified Master Trainer),” Josiah said. ”We’ve had about 1,000 dogs go through the course. Dogs come from all over. This year, we’ve had dogs return to their owners in Switzerland, Brazil and Canada (as well as all over the U.S.). We get them from all over the place specifically for the boot camp.”

At the time of the move, the new property had a pole shed in disrepair, which Josiah and his staff envisioned as the location of the indoor training area.

Greatmats Dog Agility Mats Dog Training Floor”Clients want their dogs to have first class accommodations,” Josiah said. ”We do train outside as well, but it’s nice to have an atmosphere like this where you can walk in and focus on the dog and training and not the elements.”

After several months of intense restoration and remodeling work, the final hurdle of the project was selecting a durable floor that would stay dry while also providing a safe and comfortable surface for dogs.

”We were really going back and forth on how to treat the concrete floors previous to installing any sort of flooring, because we knew it (the concrete) would sweat,” Josiah said. ”We put a lot of time and effort into researching different flooring options. It was import to us to have space that is climate controlled.”

In July of 2012, the staff at Neuman K-9 Academy decided blaze a new trail in K-9 flooring with an alternative use for Patio Outdoor Tiles they found on a website called Greatmats.com. The Patio Outdoor Tiles, designed for use in wet areas, would serve as a subfloor underneath waterproof interlocking Dog Agility Mats also found at Greatmats.com. Waterproof and slip resistant, the patio tiles are designed to allow water to drain through them and are elevated, permitting air to flow underneath the flooring.

Neuman K9 Academy Dog Training School with Greatmats Dog Agility Floor and Patio Outdoor Tile”We put down the PVC as a subfloor because… we didn’t want the moisture to be trapped underneath,” Josiah said. ”It just made more sense to use a product like the PVC floor that would be designed for getting wet, airflow, things like that.”

Summer Duggan, the assistant training director at Neuman K-9 Academy, added, ”It’s a firm material, but I think it even adds an extra layer of support and cushioning – as opposed to just having the mats flat on concrete.”

The idea for interlocking dog agility mats as the top surface of the floating floor came upon recommendation of other friends in the professional dog training industry. One training facility in western Wisconsin used these same kind of interlocking dog agility mats, and Josiah was particularly impressed by their performance.

Greatmats Patio Outdoor Tiles Underlayment for Dog Training Floor”They’ve had them for a long time,” Josiah said, noting that they’ve beaten up the mats and they’re still holding up really well.

”We do sport dogs,” Josiah said. ”We do bite work. So we’ll literally have a dog back tied – agitation; they’re gripping; they’re clawing; they’re pulling. These go through a lot of abuse. One of the biggest considerations with the type of flooring we were going to go with was not only… Is it comfortable for the dogs? Is it safe for them? And then very importantly, what’s the longevity of the product going to be like.”

Durability
The K-9 Academy uses the facility 3-4 times per week, specifically for off-leash behavior and training with up to 15 dogs at a time. After nearly 3 years, the flooring has suffered some expected cosmetic blemishes that come along with hard use and abuse. But the mats continue to perform as well as the day they were installed.

Summer said, ”We work with different working breeds in different venues in addition to the obedience and the agility, and I’m very impressed with the durability of the product. It gets a lot of mileage. There are lots of dogs running around in here – lots of toenails, and its held up phenomenally well, even in the really high traffic areas.”

”So far, we haven’t replaced a single tile,” Josiah added.

Comfort and Safety
The new flooring system hasn’t disappointed in comfort or safety either.

Neuman K9 Academy Dog Jumping Greatmats Dog Agility Floor”When we are doing jumps, we’re having dogs clear things and land hard,” Josiah said. ”When you are training a sport dog to jump, typically you won’t start until they’re 12 months of age or older – sometimes even 2 years of age or older – because of their bones developing. With how soft these (tiles) are to land on, we can actually start dogs at a younger age, because it’s low impact.”

To get out of the elements at its previous location, Neuman K-9 Academy needed to rent space, and the flooring systems varied greatly.

”One place had concrete pavers, which was not good,” Summer said. ”There were situations sometimes where dogs would get scraped pads. Other places had a pebbly/rubbery floor – decent traction, but no shock absorption. This is the best!”

As for the water problem from sweaty concrete and foot traffic… There isn’t one.

”When people are coming in and out… if there’s snow, if it’s a rainy day… things dry up really nice,” Josiah said. ”We’ve never had a problem with them.”

With this innovative flooring system, Neuman K-9 Academy is truly top dog.
