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.

Rio Gran – Indoor Doggy Daycare Play Area

Rubber Flooring at Dog Daycare and Training Facility Rio Gran

By Brett Hart

A love for dogs and an eye for opportunity led Jeff Peters to an exciting journey into the world of canine daycare, boarding and training. A former product and sales manager and director of business development, Peters surprisingly stumbled into the world of doggy daycare a couple of years ago when he and his wife updated their long-term family dog pack with a two much larger, and rowdier, companions.

”As puppies, they were absolute terrors,” Peters said. ”We have a sizable house, but it didn’t matter. It was shoes. It was recliner handles. Everything was getting chewed.”

At their wit’s end, the couple turned to a local doggy daycare facility for help, which Jeff admittedly thought was a bit ”Foo Foo.”

”Doggy daycare?” he said. ”Who would spend money on that?”

Much to his surprise and delight, these two menaces came home well behaved each time they went to daycare. They became much more social with other dogs and humans.

”I saw how happy the dogs were, how happy the clients were, and said, ‘This is a business I want to be in,”’ Jeff said.

So when Rio Gran, a reputable multipurpose dog service facility in Hastings, Minn., came up for sale, Jeff jumped on the opportunity to get on board, and ramped things up a notch with a number of upgrades. Jeff purchased the 15-year-old business in September of 2014 and quickly went to work redesigning some of the indoor and outdoor areas of the 3 1/2-acre property for training and play while maintaining the stylish flair of the popular boarding facility.

”It’s all about the creature comfort,” Jeff said. ”We really strive to be doggy heaven.”

Part of the indoor remodeling project involved converting a rundown kennel building into an additional indoor play area. A stickler for safety and cleanliness, Jeff began researching different flooring surfaces to put in the newly-remodeled building.

”We were seriously considering using an epoxy-coated concrete floor,” Jeff said. But after observing the daycare dogs running on different surfaces, he decided that concrete just wasn’t going to cut it.

”We do see quite a few dogs here that have hip issues or even torn ACLs,” Jeff said. ”They have to be very carefully looked after. My fear with concrete was that even if you put a grid in it, it gets slick. If their nails are a little bit long, when they go to make a turn or cut, they can lose their legs out from underneath them.”

Another indoor play area at his facility had a rolled rubber flooring that was about 10 years old and, after some thorough cleaning, still looked like new. Watching the dogs on that surface, he noticed the floor was tacky enough to allow the dogs’ paw pads to grip and keep them from slipping while also being gentle on the pads.

”They will run like crazy on that stuff,” Jeff said. ”If they’re on a hard concrete surface, they run the possibility of tearing up their pads.”

He began researching rubber flooring and found it was even better than he had hoped.

”We were concerned initially about the porosity of the material when dogs have accidents,” Jeff said. ”We get puppies in here a lot at the daycare.”

With a little online research, Jeff found just what he was looking for at Greatmats.com – low odor 3/8-inch thick Greatmats Rubber Flooring Rolls, which are made in the USA from recycled tires.

”It’s a recycled product, but it’s not porous,” Jeff said. ”With… the proper cleaning procedure, you can keep any urine, feces, that sort of thing from getting into the material and staying in the material. I think it’s actually easier to keep clean than concrete.”As for durability, the previously-installed rubber flooring (along with Greatmats’ 5-year limited warranty) gave Jeff the peace of mind he needed to know it is made to last – even with a facility like his that often reaches its 100-dog limit during the summer and holidays.

With the new indoor play area, Rio Gran now offers a little more than 6,000 square feet of indoor roaming area that is covered with this rubber flooring. ”It’s fantastic and it’s easy to keep clean,” Jeff said.

Jeff is also working on upgrading his 16,000 square foot area of off-leash outdoor roaming space.

”Part of what we do is we make sure they get exercise and played with to the point where they want to come back here,” Jeff said. ”Even in the best homes, the dogs aren’t getting necessarily exercised to the point of exhaustion every day. But when they come here, they do. And so they’re very content and always anxious to come back and play.”
