Color Plus Tiles



Home gyms are enjoying a boon of popularity.  This can be attributed to a number of different factors: 
The cost of equipment is coming down while its quality is increasing.  More and more people are deciding to take the money they would spend on a commercial gym membership and investing it in their homes.  The membership, along with commuting costs, can be easily transferred into their own basements. 
Also, the distractions that come with working out in a public place are eliminated. 
Combine all these reasons with the fact that many people are embarrassed to start training in front of strangers and you have a recipe for a large home gym groundswell.
Along with this surge of home gym usage, more people are concluding they need rubber flooring to protect the surfaces of their floors.  All it takes is a dumbbell dropped on a few ceramic tiles and you have a problem on your hands.
An excellent product for home and commercial gym flooring, our Rubber Tile Color Plus will make your space look great.  This product is truly state-of-the-art.  Its tensile strength is four times stronger than most gym flooring products on the market today.
The unique color options and top texture design are not found in any other products.  Molded from SBR rubber, this tile is constructed to present a seamless look when installed.
Great for weight rooms and home gyms, this product is also great for walk areas in ice arenas, golf pro shops, locker rooms, animal care facilities, trade show booths, and batting cages.
Corners and borders are beveled or ramped down.  For a wall to wall installation, you will want to order center tiles.  The sizes of these tiles vary:  center tiles are 2 ft x 2 ft.  Borders measure 1 ft x 2 ft.   Corners cover three square feet each.  All tiles are 3/8” (9mm) thick. 
These gym floor tiles feature a non-slip surface.  They are available in nine dynamic colors sure to match your décor.  Color Plus Tiles are made in the USA.
To install this gym floor requires no adhesive.  Simply interlock the edges together like a giant puzzle and you’re done.  For wall-to-wall installations, you can simply cut the tiles as necessary with a sharp utility knife.

To clean your gym flooring, use a neutral PH cleaner – such as Taski Profi.
This product is shipped via freight delivery.

Gym Floor Covers

Gymnasium flooring is an expensive investment.   Most floors cost tens of thousands of dollars.  To protect your investment, gym floors should be cleaned and resurfaced on a regular basis.  However, many schools simply don’t have the budget to maintain their floors and the wood is neglected and abused for years.  The effects of this begin to manifest themselves in a faded gym floor with dull lines and scratched, rough looking surface.  Left long enough, a hardwood floor will begin to warp and buckle rendering it ineffective and unattractive.

Here’s something else you probably already know: Because so many activities take place in gymnasiums, chances are yours isn’t used only for sporting events.  Homecoming dances, proms, pep rallies, and other school functions often take place in the gym.  Not to mention all the outside events that are not sponsored by the school like local church services or bake sales.  These events place different, often more damaging, stresses on your floor.    People wear different shoes.  There are more people on the floor.  Oftentimes, there is food and drink spilled on the gym floor.  None of these things are particularly good for your hardwood finish and all of them contribute to decreasing the life of your flooring.
Gym floor covers from Greatmats are an excellent solution for this issue.  They available in two different styles.


We offer ten-foot, vinyl, sheet-rolled gym flooring that quickly and easily rolls out to protect your floor.  For an average gym size, two people should easily be able to install this cover in thirty minutes.  Various vinyl thicknesses are available and the thickness you choose for your particular installation should depend on the number of times you will be using your cover.  (See product page for more information.)   Fifteen different colors are available so you should have no trouble finding the color that reflects your school spirit.  Racks can be easily closeted or tucked away making them convenient and not intrusive.   Cleaning them requires only a quick mopping.

Carpet tile gym floor covering is also available.  These American-made1x2 meter tiles are easy to install and store as well.   Unlike vinyl, the carpet will not tear or bunch even under the most strenuous situations.  Carpet top gym floor tiles are non-slip and provide excellent traction.  Carts are available for tile storage so you can wheel them where you need them rather than carrying them from one end of the gym to the other to install and break down your protective floor cover.  To clean them, just vacuum the tiles and you’re done.  It’s that simple.

Home Gym Flooring

When it comes to choosing the best flooring for your home gym, you have a few options.   Selecting the right type of flooring for your particular application is going to be critical.  Choose the wrong home gym flooring and you can have a real problem on your hands and one that’s not easily (or cheaply) replaced.  But how can you know that the flooring type you select is the right one?

The most important thing you can do is talk to flooring professionals.  At Greatmats, our customer service people have a solid handle on which products work best for which applications.   We strongly recommend you discuss your options with us prior to placing an order, especially if the room you’re looking to cover is large.   However, here are some basic pointers to get you started in the right direction.

The most popular product for most home gyms is rubber.  At Greatmats we offer both interlocking rubber tiles and rolled rubber in a variety of sizes, colors, and thicknesses.  Rubber is very effective for protecting both your equipment and your floors.  It offers sound dampening qualities and is rugged enough to withstand the abuse that comes from dropping heavy weights provided you purchase a thick enough product.  It is an excellent surface to use under equipment and weight benches/racks.

However, a common misconception about rubber flooring is that it’s soft and will provide fatigue relief for the athlete.  People also tend to assume rubber is waterproof and will hold up well in wet areas.  This is NOT the case.  If you’re looking for a soft, waterproof surface, you’re looking for foam.

Like our rubber tiles, foam mats are also available in various thicknesses, colors, and sizes.  Interlocking mats are easy to install, require no adhesive, and can be easily transported from room to room or house to house.  They are excellent for aerobic exercise and will give you a soft workout area for aerobic exercises like P90x, Jazzercise, or Zumba.  Foam is waterproof and also provides some sound dampening properties.

There are exceptions to these basic rules.  We do offer Plyometric rubber flooring that is soft and great for aerobic exercise.  It is less dense than standard rubber and specifically designed for running, jumping, bounding, etc.  We also provide Pebble Foam Mats that are tough enough to be used in weight rooms.  However, as a general rule, rubber is best for weight areas.  Foam mats are best for aerobic areas.

A final option is the modular floor tile.  This product is nice for areas where you’d like to create a multipurpose area that won’t be specifically used as a workout area all the time.  We have modular floor tiles that create a great looking room that can double as your aerobics area.  Tiles provide some fatigue relief though not as much as foam and also look fantastic when you’re using the room for other purposes.  Modular tiles are a great selection for aerobic activities but, like foam, aren’t great for weight room areas.

Hopefully, this provides you with some clarification and helps you when trying to decide what product to use for your home gym floor.  Again, we strongly recommend that you discuss your particular situation and needs with a customer service rep prior to buying product if you’re not sure what you need.  We are always happy to help you find the floor that you’ll be happy with for years to come.
