Columbus Man Protects Home Gym Floor With UltraTile Rubber Tiles

Durable Rubber Weight Room Floor Tiles Protect Concrete From Accidents

By Brett Hart

When it comes to protecting his basement floor, Fred of Columbus, Ohio, isn’t about to take any chances.

fred-gym-1426After purchasing an extensive set of weightlifting equipment, previously used for bodybuilding, from neighbors, this 65-year-old recreational weightlifter has friends over to lift with him weekly and wanted to be sure his 8-inch thick solid concrete basement floor was protected against any accidents.

”Usually, I over engineer things,” he said. ”I wanted something that was real heavyweight so that if there was an accident, the concrete wouldn’t get damaged.”

Having seen some heavy duty rubber flooring tiles in a weight room at a nearby apartment complex, Fred inquired about the tiles and was referred to Greatmats.com to take a look at its UltraTile Rubber Weight Floors.

The 1 inch thick, 2×2 foot tiles were just what he was looking for. The tiles were thick enough to make Fred comfortable that his floor would not be damaged by falling weights, and connect firmly together with pin connectors that ensure the 20×40 foot section of flooring will stay in place in his home gym.

fred-gym-1425Although the flooring is designed to handle the impact of fall weights, in the spirit of over engineering, Fred decided to put a double layer in his 10×12 foot powerlifting area.

The rubber tiles were also easy enough to install himself, and with 220 tiles at 16 pounds per tile, he said, ”It’s a workout putting them together. It took me about 24 hours over six days.”

”If you’re doing it yourself, it takes a while,” Fred said. ”I would pound for a little while and carry after I finished putting dowels in. That would give me a little rest in between.”

Home Weight Room Gym Greatmats UltraTile Weight Room Rubber TileA resourceful installer, Fred decided to forgo the 2-3 pound sledge hammer and 2×4 tapping block to put the connector pins in place and put on a pair of heavy steel toe work boots to kick set the dowels.

”There’s always one side (where) you have to get down and match the holes,” Fred said. ”I was kicking them together instead of pounding. It kind of jars your body a little bit, but it was easier for me than pounding with a 2 pound hammer. I’m not a youngster, but I still was able to do it. I figured I saved a couple thousand dollars installing myself. It just took me a little time.”

Weight Room Greatmats UltraTile Weight Room Rubber TileHe was also able to cut the tiles successfully to go around the four brace poles in his basement.

Now that the flooring is in place, Fred is happy with how it’s worked out for him.

”I use it once or twice a week,” he said. ”Whenever other guys come over to work out, it reminds me to get out of the office and get down there. … Everybody likes the floor. It’s a nice product. … We’ve only had one accident. The weights hit the floor and rolled off onto the concrete, and that seemed to make it so it didn’t hurt anything.”

Dunamis Therapy and Fitness – Weight Training Area

Rubber Gym Floor, Rolled Rubber Weight Room Floor

By Brett Hart
When Dunamis Therapy and Fitness to opened its fourth facility in Augusta, Wisconsin, in December of 2014, the unique 24/7 fitness center with a connected outpatient physical therapy clinic wanted to make sure it had all its bases covered.

‘Most physical therapy clinics don’t have the option of having a 24/7 fitness center,’ said Office Manager Trina Lindner. ‘We can work on patients and then they can continue their therapy (including aquatic therapy) on their own outside of their therapy visits.’

With concrete flooring throughout the building, sound travel was an area of concern – especially in the free weight area where the noise of clanging steel can aggravate even the most seasoned fitness veterans.

To solve this problem, Dunamis Therapy and Fitness opted to install 3/8 inch thick Greatmats rubber flooring rolls in its 24 x 25 foot free weight area.
‘We have a long narrow building, so the noise travels far and fast,’ Trina said. ‘It takes away some of that noise.’

Trina pointed out that Greatmats’ rubber matting also protects the concrete floors from dropped weights. An added benefit of the rubber floor covering is its ease of cleaning, especially during the vacuuming process. Mopping can be a little more difficult due to its non-slip surface.

Dunamis Therapy and Fitness, founded in 2003, has three other locations in western Wisconsin, including Chetek, Thorp and Eau Claire, and an Altoona facility is in the works. Greatmats rubber flooring was also installed in the Thorp facility around the same time as the Augusta center and has had the same result.

‘It doesn’t move, and it’s comfortable,’ Trina said.

Geneva Rubber Floor Tiles

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.

Greatmats Geneva Rubber Tile 8mm Color FlecksIn 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..  

Greatmats Rubber Tile 3/8 Inch Color FlecksThe 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. 

Greatmats Rubber Tile 1/2 Inch BlackTo 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.
