4×6 Ft x 3/4 Inch Fitness Rubber Floor Mat Diamond Black

The 4×6 Ft x 3/4 Inch Fitness Rubber Floor Mat in Diamond Black from Greatmats is one of the most durable, reliable, and longest-lasting floor mats you can find. This4×6 ft black fitness rubber matcovers a large area, gives you outstanding durability, and can be used for a seemingly-limitless variety of spaces.

Thanks to outstanding service from the Greatmats team, you can use these 4×6 gym floor mats for your home, fitness center, horse barn or commercial area.

But first, let’s learn more about these amazing 3/4 rubber mats.

Built for Durability, Quality, and Consistency
You can find 4×6 rubber mats in 3/8 inch and 1/2 inch thickness, but if you want outstanding strength and durability, you should choose 3/4 rubber mats. At 3/4 inches of thickness, you get the best possible protection for flooring. Of course, the added thickness also means added weight, as these 4×6 rubber mats weigh 105 pounds each. You’ll want to keep that in mind when moving and installing the 4×6 gym mat; you may need help safely moving them.

These 4×6 rubber gym mats come in solid black and with 25% color fleck. All the black rubber material in the mix is made from a recycled rubber source. Rubber mats made from recycled material are extremely durable, and they are often less expensive than mats and rolls made from new rubber. In some cases, recycled rubber can be better for certain applications.

These 4×6 gym floor mats cover a total of 23 square feet. (The measurements are actually just under 4 feet and 6 feet, reducing the square footage.) This allows you to cover a wide area with very few mats. It also makes transportation easier, as you won’t need hundreds of mats to cover a large area. (Remember that they are heavy.)

These revulcanized rubber mats are non-absorbent, which helps protect against water damage, as well as mold growth.

The top of this 3/4 rubber mat uses a diamond pattern, which helps increase traction and reduce the chances of slipping. With this non-slip surface, you’ll have great reliability and safety. This can be especially important if using the mats in a work space, but it’s also important for workout areas, horse barns and more.

Because these mats are not UV treated and only they are not recommended for outdoor use. If you need an outdoor surface material, we have many other outdoor mats and tiles for you to choose from.

The edges on this rubber mat are trued, which means the tile has very straight edges that are precision cut on a water jet cutting table. They do not have an interlocking connection, but there is no special adhesive required for installation, as the mats generally lay flat, especially when fitted properly.

Uses for These Outstanding 4×6 Rubber Mats
Choose this type of 4×6 rubber mat when you need a single product for use under exercise and weight lifting equipment. This rubber mat is very durable and long lasting, and will stand up to exercise equipment, free weights and large animals.


Gym Flooring
You can place everything from weight benches to powerlifting stations over the mats with little concern of damage to the surface. They can withstand the impact of dropped metal weights, as well as the constant pressure from treadmills. With these 4×6 gym floor mats in your facility, you’ll have a durable, slip-resistant surface that holds up to constant pounding.

These 4×6 rubber floor mats offer our customers an economical rubber mat option for use under heavy workout equipment, treadmills, stationary bikes and steppers.

Because recycled rubber can have a strong smell, this mat is not recommended for individuals with a high sensitivity to smell. This is because the material is made with sulfur-based adhesives. Smells will fade over time.

They are great for commercial weight rooms and athletic fitness centers on military bases and more with large spaces.

These rubber floor mats are one of the most affordable and economical options when a durable and large single piece of rubber material is needed in weight rooms, workout rooms and gyms.

Equine Flooring
This rubber mat is excellent for equine applications in horse stalls and aisle ways. Whether a horse is shod or bare hoofed, these mats give superior traction, helping reduce the chances of slipping and injuries to your prized animals. While they do not display a particularly cushiony or springy nature, they are easy horse’s joints, giving them relief from hard concrete and making stall mucking much easier than dirt or gravel floors. Because they are 3/4 inch thick, the mats will hold up against the weight of even the heaviest horses.

Other Uses
Use this product on commercial walkways or any commercial location where a durable rubber flooring is required. They will lay flat when placed over a hard, flat surface while giving that surface superior traction. They can also hold up against heavy equipment while giving workers a slip-resistant work space.

Because they are easy to clean, you’ll have a material that enhances the quality of your facility. From homes to commercial centers, these rubber mats will give you years of quality and reliability.

Simple to Install in Any Location
At Greatmats, we believe that specialty flooring should be easy to install when at all possible. You should not have to deal with unique tools, special adhesives, or advanced connectors, and you certainly shouldn’t need an engineering education to place the mats together.

Fortunately, these 3/4 inch rubber mats are simple to install, and nearly anyone can figure out the installation process, which requires no special adhesives or tools. The mats press up against each other tightly, forming a virtually seamless connection thanks to the trued edges.

Cutting the Mats
Cutting could be required if you need to fit the mats to specific areas. While they are made from a strong, resilient material, the mats are actually easy to cut. A sharp utility blade will be able to cut the mats quickly, but be sure to use extreme caution to avoid injury. (Tip: Placing a 2×4 board under the mat will help separate the cut, reducing friction with your blade and making cutting easier.)

Another option to make cutting with a utility blade easier, you can spray a small amount of WD-40 on the knife edge. This helps lubricate the blade and makes for smoother cutting. (Once again, use extreme caution, as the blade will cut with minimal resistance, increasing the chances of slipping.)

Jigsaws and reciprocating saws can also cut the material.

The mats are a loose-lay product, and no adhesives are needed to place the mats.

When the mats are in place and you move the first equipment over the flooring, you may notice some slight movement. While movement may be more noticeable with thinner mats, the 3/4 rubber mats may still move slightly. Don’t worry about shifting. Once the equipment is in place, the mats will lay flat and there should be no further movements.

Easy Cleaning and Maintenance
When you install these 4×6 rubber mats, you’ll have a product that is easy to clean. In almost all cases, sweeping and vacuuming is all that’s required to keep the mats clean. A beater brush vacuum works best for lifting dirt, dust and debris from the surface of the mats. If you have stubborn dirt and grime, you can remove it with warm liquid and a mild cleaner.

In some cases, you may notice an odor after initial installation. However, this odor can usually be reduced by cleaning the mats after installation. Pine-Sol, Simple Green or even highly diluted bleach (about 1 cap per gallon of water) will help eliminate the smell.

In all cases, be sure to test your cleaning method in a small corner before applying it to the entire mat. This is especially important when using cleaning chemicals and powerful vacuums. Never use petroleum-based cleaners.

5 Years of Reassurance
Because they are made from high-quality recycled rubber, these are some of the most durable and long-lasting mats you can find. To give you even more confidence in your purchase, the 4×6 rubber mats come with a five-year warranty.

This warranty ensures the mat is free of defects in both the material and workmanship. The limited warranty runs from the date of the original purchase. If a defect is found, the customer has 15 days to contact us. If applicable, we’ll help you repair or replace the material as soon as possible.

Rubber Mats for a Wide Range of Purposes
Greatmats has a wide selection of top-quality mats that you can use for nearly any space. From workout facilities to commercial applications, you can find the right surface for your unique needs.

Rolled Rubber

Whether you’re looking for a floor covering for a home gym, commercial facility, industrial building, or even an ammunition room, rolled rubber is a great choice.  Excellent for protecting your floor, rolled rubber is tough and relatively inexpensive compared to many other options on the market today.

Rolls of rubber can be used in a variety of different places.  For workout areas where gym equipment or weights are used, rolled rubber protects the floor from damage while also keeping equipment safe from dust and debris.  For most of these situations, we recommend 3/8″.  It is thick enough to protect the floors from day-to-day abuse without being too thick, therefore, and cost prohibitive.  If you are using heavy weights and dropping them to the floor repeatedly (100 lbs or more) we recommend at least a half-inch thickness.  Otherwise, 3/8″ should be more than sufficient to meet your needs.

3/8″ is also the standard thickness for most industrial applications.  Rolled rubber in 3/8″ can be used in high traffic areas, mutions areas, and high traffic walkways in industrial applications.  For everyday walkways, the user can usually go with a 1/4″ rubber product.  

Rubber Flooring Rolls can be installed with either a tape-down or glue-down method. Rolled Rubber Flooring can add comfort and durability to an otherwise hard surface. However, it is worth noting that for situations where you will be doing aerobic activity, foam is usually the better product.  It is lighter and less expensive to ship.  It also provides varying degrees of cushion.  (For more information on our foam products, please click here.  
Rubber provides more cushion than concrete but it is still hard.  Rubber Flooring Roll material is most commonly ordered in 100 percent black or with a 10 or 20 percent color in the mix. 
Rolls of Rubber are the most common types rubber flooring available.  The rolls are heavy and will almost always ship via freight truck but the product itself is generally less expensive than other options such as interlocking tiles.  
Each roll of rubber will lay flat when unrolled for installation. Rolled Rubber can be cut with a utility knife for a wall to wall installation. Rubber Roll Floor will withstand high impacts in weight rooms. Rubber Flooring Rolls are all 4 ft wide per roll.  The rolls can easily be cut to fit in a wall-to-wall situation with a sharp utility knife and a straightedge.  Rubber Flooring Roll material is made with recycled rubber content and is considered a green product by EPA standards.  They are manufactured in the USA.

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.

Geneva Rubber Tiles-3×3′

Designed for larger, commercial applications, the Geneva interlocking rubber flooring tile series is our stocked line of 3×3 ft interlocking rubber floor tiles.  These rubber tiles are available in standard colors and thicknesses from 1/4 to 1/2 inch in a 3×3 ft tile size. 

Great for commercial gym areas, these tiles are designed to protect the floor from the wear and tear of everyday weight lifting and exercise machinery.  In most situations, an 8mm or 3/8” thickness is best for weight areas.  1/4” is sufficient for walkways and other traffic areas.  For places where heavy weights (100 lbs or more) are consistently dropped to the floor, you may want to go with a 1/2” rubber for extra protection.
Standard colors for this rubber flooring product are as follows:
1/4” tiles are available in 20% colors.  8mm and 3/8” product comes in black as well as a 10% color fleck.  1/2” tiles are available in black.
The best value we offer is our 8mm thickness.  This is (roughly) 1mm thinner than our 3/8” product and you won’t notice the difference in performance between these two tile thicknesses.
The connection edges for these rubber floor tiles is a universal interlock design.  This means that the interlocking system is not dependent on which way the tile is oriented for the sides to connect to another tile.  This handy feature will maximize tile usage yielding the least amount of material waste.  Easily cut these rubber tiles for a custom wall-to-wall installation in your home gym or in large scale commercial installations with a sharp utility knife and a straightedge.
Interlocking rubber floor tiles are nice because, unlike some other flooring options, they require no adhesive for installation.  Simply piece the tiles together like a giant puzzle and you’re done.  If you decide to relocate, you can simply pack them up and take them with you.
To clean your rubber flooring, simply sweep and mop with a damp mop.

Customer Review-1/4" Rolled Rubber

“Everyone seems very happy with the product and, if needed, we would buy again.”  -Bob J.


At the Azalea Dog Training Club, in Wilmington, NC  www.adtc.us volunteers have been teaching  people how to train their dogs since 1972.   A community-focused organization, they help their neighbors with an entirely volunteer staff. 
They deal with puppies as well as adult dogs.  Depending on customer needs, these animals are taught good manners and can even be prepared for competition and obedience trials.  They also do Therapy dog evaluations and certifications and give safety demos to schools and scout troops.  Demos are also given at rest homes or wherever else is needed.
The Azalea center used our 1/4” rolled rubber flooring for their facility.  Not only does the rubber protect the floors below, it offers great traction for the animals as well as the trainers.  At Greatmats, we supply rolled rubber for a wide variety of applications including commercial and home gyms, ammunition rooms, industrial applications, and others.  It is an economical and solution for many situations.
“The installation took approximately six or seven hours, “ Bob says.  “We worked on it for three nights but the third night was strictly putting equipment back in place.  We had about seven or eight people each night…all in all, we are very pleased with the installation.  Our installation was on top of an existing concrete floor.”
Installing rolled rubber can be challenging due to the sheer weight of the product.  However, the rolls are precision cut so they are square against one another.  This provides a tight seam every time.  Interlocking rubber tiles are another option for installing rubber floors in your facility.  Tiles simply piece together like a giant puzzle.  The edges can be cut to fit for a wall-to-wall installation.
Bob says, “I would definitely recommend Greatmats.  I have been told another training facility wants to see our mats.  Paul (a Greatmats sales rep) was an enormous help to us and was very patient with me as I went from him to our club board and membership.  He always had the answers we needed to make our decision.”

Rolled rubber, while heavy is a great and inexpensive way to protect your floors.  We offer a number of different thicknesses and types of rubber.  Natural rubber is made from recycled tires and is the least expensive option.  Black rubber is the most popular rolled rubber we sell.  Color mix rubber is also available in a variety of colors and with varying percentages.  Because the colors mixed in are virgin EPDM rubber fleck, this is the nicest option we carry.

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.

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.
