Rubber Gym Mats

Rubber mats are an incredibly durable athletic flooring solution. They provide superior impact absorption, whilst also being durable and preventing damage to floors underneath. Rubber floors are suitable inside home gyms, commercial gyms, fitness centres, and martial arts training centres, and have found an almost universal appeal by the fitness community. Let’s talk about the best reasons to invest in rubber flooring for your own gym. Below you’ll find the three main reasons to purchase rubber flooring:

  1. Rubber mats absorb impacts

Unlike any other athletic flooring, rubber mats can handle impacts from heavy weights, dispersing the weight throughout the entire surface. In fact, even thin rubber mats can provide a significant layer of protection for the subfloors and floors in your home. With rubber flooring, you’ll enjoy an increased level of safety, as the weights that you use are prevented from bouncing out of control.

The impact absorption qualities of rubber mats have to do with how rubber mats are created. Formed in a crucible of heat and pressure, both virgin rubber and vulcanised rubber are compressed under extreme pressure, which creates a durable compound. Also, vulcanised rubber is treated with a special chemical compound and heated to create a nonporous workout mat. These mats are waterproof, and dirt and debris cannot seep into the mats.

Rubber mats are useful for athletes when training using heavy weights. Like no other mat available, rubber mats prevent against dents, scuffs, or rips in the barbells, weights, and workout equipment that you regularly use. In fact, you’ll notice that if you drop a barbell loaded with weight on your rubber mats after performing a dead lift, the barbell will have some spring to it, and may even bounce up. Rubber mats come in handy for places in the gym where athletes train heavyweights (75kgs and up), and they provide a layer of cushioning underneath their feet.

  1. They provide traction

Rubber mats provide a great deal of friction, allowing you to have the best footing when performing complex Olympic lifts. This makes them incredibly useful to farmers, who use the mats in horse and cow stalls for nonslip flooring that provides traction for their animals. Even when covered with water, rubber mats are easy to walk on, and prevent against slips, trips, and falls. Some rubber mats even have stud dot or amoebic surface textures which add to the grip on the surface of the mats.

You may notice when you use rubber mats that you’re able to “dig in” before a big lift, setting your feet on the mats firmly as you grasp the bar and pull out the slack. From my personal experience, there is nothing that boosts your confidence more than knowing that you are protected when you step onto rubber mats. Rubber mats allow you to put yourself in the right headspace, knowing that what’s underneath your feet is providing you with a solid foundation to destroy your last personal record.

  1. They are also incredibly durable

Rubber mats are also one of the most resilient flooring solutions available on the market. The best anti-slip rubber mats can handle chemicals and corrosive materials, and that’s why you may see rubber flooring at job sites, manufacturing centres, and factories throughout the UK. Simply wipe the surface of the mat off, spray it with a little bit of water from a pressure washer, and the mat should be good to go. Rubber mats are also great outdoors, and you can use them for dog runs, anti-fatigue flooring in a shop or garage, and even for walkways.

You can find rubber mats available in both slab and jigsaw types, and this variety allows you to find the perfect rubber mat for whatever purposes you have. If you’re interested in learning more about how to install rubber mats, check out this article: Installing Rubber Mats.
