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.

Learn how to clean rubber floor mats and also how to install rubber floor mats.

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.

The solid design of these playground surface tiles makes it impossible for foreign objects to hide. This provides a safer environment for children. Also, unlike poured-in-place rubber surfacing, you don’t have to replace your entire surface if some areas begin to wear down. You can simply replace that tile or group of tiles.

Safety

Greatmats Bounce Back Rubber Playground Tiles red and greenNo other playground surfacing material offers the degree of safety assurance that rubber tiles can provide. Wood and rubber mulch products are easily displaced, resulting in inadequate thickness/protection in large areas of the playground. They also present an undesirable and dangerous material that children can swallow, throw or kick. Poured-in-place products are subject to climatic variation during installation, which makes the durability and lifespan of the material unpredictable. Bounce Back Tiles eliminate these problems and offer the assurance of safe surfacing for children’s play areas.

Greatmats 2.5 Inch Bounce Back Playground Rubber TileBounce Back Playground Tiles are designed to meet federally-mandated Critical Fall Height requirements for playground equipment up to 10-feet tall. These rubber playground tiles have been certified to comply with these requirements by IPEMA through TUV/SUD, which is a third-party, independent testing/certification laboratory. Additionally, the manufacturer conducts regular, in-house Critical Fall Height testing as part of their Quality Control plan.

The fall height protection for each thickness measurement of bounce back rubber playground mats is:

  • 6 feet rating for 2.5-inch thickness
  • 8 feet rating for 3.5-inch thickness
  • 10 feet rating for 4-inch thickness

Color Options

Bounce Back tiles are available in two color options: EPDM and Color Topped. The first is a surface wear layer of colored EPDM rubber granules. With this option, you can choose from green, tan or blue colors.

A second color option is a surface layer of colored tire crumb rubber. This economical option includes Black, Red, Blue, Green and Brown. Tiles with these colors can used in combination to create very appealing playground designs.

Installation Ease

Greatmats Bounce Back Playground Rubber Tile installedBounce Back tiles can be easily and economically installed over a variety sub-surfaces. Once an installation sub-surface has been properly prepared, the tiles can usually be installed by the customer’s maintenance crew. This cannot be said of poured-in-place surfacing, which requires expensive contractors and specialized equipment to effectively install.

Maintenance Ease

Bounce Back Tiles are virtually maintenance free. Most cleaning simply involves a broom, garden hose or leaf blower. Replacing damaged tiles is as easy as removing the tile and installing a new one. This is not the case with other playground options which require costly and unattractive poured-in-place surface repairs.

Moisture Permeability

Greatmats Bounce Back Playground Rubber MatsBounce Back tiles are designed to allow rainwater to flow through the tile surface and away from the playground, as opposed to forming puddles on the surface. This allows children to resume play after bad weather sooner than they could on other surfaces such as poured-in-place.

    • Non-slip: Our flooring rolls contain a non-slip surface that works great for athletics, preventing slippage from users.
    • Durability: The surface of the Greatmats rubber flooring offers durability, resisting scuffs and dents from heavy objects.
    • Water resistant: The rolled flooring resists spills from water and other liquids. However, if exposed to water consistently, over time, the floor will absorb water.
    • Odor resistant: Because of its water resistance, the rubber mat rolls won’t absorb sweat, allowing it to remain resistant to odors. The construction process we use generates a limited amount of rubber odor when the product is new too.
    • Long lasting color: Should you choose to add flecks of color in your rubber flooring, it lasts through years of usage, as the flecks are incorporated throughout the thickness of the floor. This means the color won’t wear away as it would if it were just on the surface.
    • Made in America: We’re proud of the fact that all of our Greatmats rubber rolls are made in the USA.

Rolled mat roll specified cut lengths are available upon request. In some cases, some manufacturers may provide the length within two rolls. For example, a 45 linear foot run lay consist on two pieces, one at 20 and one at 25 linear feet. Butt seams are common in a rolled rubber flooring layout.

Use Cases for Rubber Rolled Flooring

Greatmats rubber gym flooring rolls

Greatmats rubber gym flooring rolls

If you are looking to install flooring in an area used for athletics and training, rolled rubber is a great product. It protects floors from dents from free weights and exercise equipment, such as treadmills, offering strong durability.

It’s important to note that our rubber mat roll consists of a hard rubber that’s similar in consistency and feel to a car tire. This provides the durability levels found in our products. However, most of this type of flooring offers very little cushioning and isn’t considered a fatigue relief flooring product.

Our flooring fits well for a variety of use cases because of the numerous sizes we offer. When ordering from Greatmats, our rubber rolls appears in 4 foot widths with standard cut lengths of 10, 25 and 50 linear feet. We also provide custom cut lengths. Thickness options include 1/4 inch, 3/8 inch, 1/2 inch and 8 mm (approximately 5/16 inch).

Our thickness measurements on the rubber gym flooring rolls have a tolerance of plus or minus 0.02 inches. The width measurements on each roll have a tolerance of plus or minus 1/4 inch.

Color Options for Rolled Rubber Flooring

Greatmats rubber flooring rolls color percentage

Greatmats rubber flooring rolls color percentage chart

To provide different color styles in our rubber gym flooring rolls, we add color flecks to the rubber flooring’s black base. Because the flecks are inserted throughout the thickness of the flooring, you won’t see the color flecks wear away over time. The flooring maintains its color as it ages.

The Greatmats rubber flooring rolls are available in standard 100 percent black or a base black with color fleck options at 10 or 20 percent saturation. For custom options, you can pick color flecks up to 90 percent saturation. You can see examples of the various color flecks on our website. If you choose a custom color flooring, minimum orders are required, depending on the thickness of the flooring.

Natural rolled rubber contain whitewalls from recycled tires in the rubber mix. The confetti color option includes colored materials of varying types of rubber from previous runs. These color mixes vary slightly among each of the rubber mat rolls.

Installation of Rubber Rolls

Greatmats Rubber Flooring Rolls Rubber Mats with blue

Greatmats Rubber Flooring Roll

As long as you’re installing our rubber flooring rolls over a hard floor, these rolls are relatively easy to install, although having at least two people available to help with installation works better than one person working alone.

You’ll lay the rubber mat roll directly over concrete, ceramic tile, a low pile carpet or any smooth, hard, flat surface. For a wall to wall installation, simply unroll the rubber mat and cut to fit with a straightedge and a utility knife. Our rolled rubber products are factory cut with precision at the widths of the rolls, meaning they will lay side by side with no gaps between rolls. However, the ends of the rolls are not cut square and will require trimming during installation.

To adhere the rubber mat roll to the floor, you may use either double sided tape or adhesive. You also may dry lay rubber rolls, but they should be taped at the perimeter and seams to keep them from overlapping or sliding.

Here are some tips for installation, depending on the size of the room.

Small areas: For installations of rubber mat rolls in small homes or small rooms, you may not need to adhere the rubber flooring rolls to the floor, especially if furniture or exercise machines are atop the rolls, holding them in place. Still, we’d recommend using two-sided tape at the edges of each roll.

Greatmats rubber mat rolls

Greatmats rubber mat rolls

Medium sized areas: For medium-sized areas of less than 1,000 square feet, a double-sided carpet tape often provides enough adhesive to keep the rolls in place. However, some people prefer to use glue in this type of installation for a more permanent installation.

Large areas: For installations over 1,000 square feet, we always recommend a full glue down installation, especially where climate conditions may change. When gluing down the material, use a full spread glue method, covering the entire floor surface with glue where rubber will be laid.

During installation, pick an area where these rubber mat rolls will not be subject to constant dampness. Although non-porous, this rubber material will absorb water over time when submerged repeatedly or when power washed on a regular basis.

Should this rubber material become excessively wet, it is best to elevate the material off the ground for air drying or hand drying.

Please Note: Cut lengths for rubber mat rolls are provided as a courtesy at no additional cost to customers. In come 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.

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.

Sundance Mat 4×6 Ft x 3/4 Inch Straight Edge Standard

The Greatmats¬†4×6 Ft x 3/4 Inch Straight Edge Standard Sundance¬†horse stall product is the straight edge version of our very popular¬†Interlocking Sundance Stall Mat. These incredibly durable and affordable 4×6 rubber stall mats work perfectly in horse stalls, weight rooms, and Cross Fit gyms, or wherever the smell of rubber is not a concern indoors.

Sundance Mat 4x6 Straight Edge Standard wp1

 

horse stall mat weight greatmats

The 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. Straight Edge Standard Sundance Tile features a pebble like top surface for added traction to your floor. The stall mat weight of 100 pounds per tile means these tiles are not designed to be portable, but they’ll work great as a permanent type of surface installation in a horse stall.

Features of Sundance 4×6 Tiles

Here are some of the key features of our Straight Edge Standard Sundance thick rubber stall mat tiles.

Materials: The primary material used in making these tiles is recycled rubber.

Water resistance: Water or other liquids will not penetrate these horse stall mats.

stall mats gym greatmats

 

horse stall mats for home gym 4x6
No-slip surface: Each tile offers a slightly rough, pebble like surface that prevents slippage. The surface is called a punter surface.

Designed to Stay Put: The stall mat weight per tile measures about 100 pounds each, meaning the tiles are not easily portable. And the 3/4 inch thickness of these 4×6 stall mats means they cannot be rolled up easily for carrying.

Easy installation: As long as you have a flat surface over which to lay the mats, you can install them relatively easily. Place the rubber mats over the top of concrete, dirt or gravel. Because the horse stall mat weight is 100 pounds per tile, at least two people should work together on installation.

horse stall mats 4x6 greatmats
Cutting: Even though these 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. thick rubber stall mat tiles are heavy and have a sturdy construction, you can cut them to fit around the edges of the stall with a sharp utility knife and a straight edge. You then can bend the mat across a 2×4 and snap it before cutting the other side, just like a piece of drywall. Another option is to cut the rubber mat with a jigsaw or with an electric circular handsaw, but you’ll want some help to complete this process safely. Using a saw will also cause the blade to dull.

Benefits of Sundance Horse Mats

Although the traditional surface for a horse stall is firmly packed dirt, sprinkled with hay or straw as bedding, thick rubber mats, such as our Straight Edge Sundance mats, have quite a few advantages over using dirt in the horse stalls.

Lower costs: With heavy rubber mats installed, you’ll use less hay and bedding in the stalls. The horse won’t grind the bedding into the dirt, meaning less is needed.

No More Muddy Floor: A dirt floor will soak up water and urine, eventually turning into a muddy mess. Our Sundance mats do not soak up water, meaning the floor of the stall remains easy to clean. Additionally, the sturdy rubber stall mat weight means it resists curling or buckling, so water cannot seep underneath.

No More Rutted Floor: Horses may cause ruts in a dirt floor, leaving it uneven for walking and unsafe. The horse stall mat weight allows it to remain in place, providing a smooth surface for the horse and for the owner.

Sundance Mat 4x6 Straight Edge Standard wp8
Mucking: Cleaning up after the horse becomes much easier with thick rubber mats installed. With mats, you don’t have to deal with muddy or uneven ground inside the stall that makes shoveling and sweeping difficult. You also won’t lose your gravel or other fill during the mucking process.

Cushioning: Although our rubber horse mats are sturdy and provide a hard surface, they do have a little bit of give to them. This means they’re softer on the horse’s joints than concrete or hard-packed dirt or gravel. These rubber mats provide shock absorption and anti-fatigue benefits for large animals.

Warming layer: Having a layer of stall mat weight in the tiles provides a bit of insulation for the horse versus standing and laying on a cold dirt floor. A heavy horse stall mat weight works especially well for a horse with joint or arthritis problems.

Selecting the Right Horse Stall Mat

Each horse stall mat can support the weight of the horse as it moves around, as long as you select a high quality of mat. Some key features to consider include the following.

Thickness: Our 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. Straight Edge Sundance mat tiles provide a desirable thickness level. The 3/4 of an inch of thickness supports the weight of the horse extremely well, although thicker pads are available (usually up to 2 inches in thickness). However, installing mats thicker than 3/4 of an inch can be difficult because of the added weight they have. A 4×6 rubber mat that’s 2 inches thick will weigh more than 250 pounds.

4x6 stall mats

 

rubber mats for horse stalls greatmats
Straight edges: It’s extremely important to have mats that either lock together or that have straight edges that tightly fit together. Should gaps develop between the tiles, you may find water and urine leaking into the gaps and muddying the ground beneath. This may compromise the ground beneath the mats.

Interlocking mats: Although our 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. Straight Edge Sundance mats do not interlock at the edges, Greatmats does offer interlocking mats. An interlocking mat option represents a smarter idea for your horse stall mat choices if your horse likes to dig or paw at things in its stall. The seams of interlocking mats fit together tighter than straight edge mats, preventing damage from pawing.

Weight: Even though thicker and larger stall mat weight makes the tiles more difficult to install, heavier mats are more desirable. Heavier mats have less of a chance of slipping out of place or buckling under the weight of the horse moving around. Because of the weight of these rubber tiles, you’ll definitely want some help with the installation process.

Sundance Mat 4x6 Straight Edge Standard wp12
Construction quality: Selecting a horse stall mat weight of a high quality, such as our Greatmats Sundance 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. mats, is a must, which ensures the mat won’t shift around or curl at the edges. Lesser quality rubber mats may include non-uniform thickness or a thickness level that’s less than stated in the specifications, both of which could causes a failure of the mat through buckling. Cheaper mats won’t have perfectly straight edges either, meaning they won’t fit together.

Should you need a different size or thickness of horse stall mats than our 4×6 rubber stall mats, Greatmats carries several options. Just contact our helpful customer service center or look through the links on our site to see what’s available.

Before ordering the thick rubber stall mat tiles, you will want to closely measure the area of the stall. Mats should go to the edges of the stall, just to ensure that there’s no chance of tripping over the edges for you or the horse. Figure out how many square feet you need.

The standard size of one mat measures 48 inches wide by 72 inches in length, resulting in 24 square feet per tile. Here are the number of tiles you’ll need for some standard horse stall layouts.

10 by 12 feet: 5 tiles
10 by 14 feet: 6 tiles
12 by 12 feet: 6 tiles
12 by 14 feet: 7 tiles
12 by 16 feet: 8 tiles

Before your 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. tiles from Greatmats arrive, you’ll want to prepare the stall area. Clean up the area, removing any manure, stray bedding and straw.

Make sure the area is level. The area doesn’t have to be perfectly level to the point that you use a bubble level to measure it, but it should be flat enough that the thick rubber stall mat tiles will lay flat.

Although you may install the 4×6 stall mats directly over a dirt floor, you may want to lay down a bed of a couple of inches of pea gravel. This provides a good base to ensure a flat area over which to place the rubber mat tiles.

Other Uses

Beyond using the Straight Edge Sundance tile mats inside a horse stall, you could use them for an installation in a weight room. The thick mats will protect the floor underneath from any dropping of heavy free weights on the floor. Additionally, these rubber tiles will stand up to heavy exercise equipment without suffering damage.

However, these tiles do yield a rubbery smell, greater than that of other types of Greatmats flooring options. If you choose to use these thick rubber stall mat tiles indoors, you may experience some odor, especially in a room with little ventilation.
