Training with dumbbells and barbells will strengthen and tone your muscles. Weight training is also effective for losing fat, keeping healthy, and strengthening your nervous system. Every commercial gym and sports facility has a separate weight room that you can use for strength training. But without the proper safety equipment, these weight rooms can be hazardous. Rubber floors for weight rooms are appropriate for both strength training and safety.
Why is rubber flooring the recommended flooring solution for weight rooms? It’s a cost-effective option that’s quick to install and easy to maintain. It protects your users, equipment, and the floor from a variety of potential problems and damages.
At J&J Gym Floors, we can efficiently and quickly install weight room rubber flooring that will prevent long-term injuries and offer your users a floor they’ll enjoy using during exercise. We install high-quality rubber flooring by Encore.
Durable and Comfortable
Because heavy fitness gear has become such an integral part of almost every workout regimen, weight rooms need added floor protection. That’s why it’s important to use thicker and more durable rubber flooring that’s sturdy enough to support abuse, but still comfortable to prevent excess user fatigue and discomfort.
This especially applies to certain gym areas that regularly experience heavy use, such as the deadlift and squat areas. For other places in the gym, you can use softer mats. Softer mats help relieve pressure on the feet, joints, and lower back, allowing users to workout comfortably for more extended periods.
Suppose a lifter accidentally drops a weighted barbell directly on the concrete floor. In that case, it will damage both the equipment and the floor. When you have rubber flooring, it absorbs harmful impacts and acts as a protective layer for the floor.
Aside from this, since rubber is naturally a flexible and elastic material, it also keeps the users safe and protected from various injuries. Due to its adaptable nature, rubber can conform to your weight and provide you with the cushioning needed to ensure comfort and stability.
Best Rubber Floors for Weight Rooms
With an understanding of the essential characteristics, you can select the best type of rubber floor for your weight room. As we’ve mentioned above, it’s crucial to use a thick enough floor material that can endure heavy weights and wear and tear. With that in mind, here are the best rubber flooring solutions you can install in your weight room:
Rubber Rolls and Tiles
Basic rubber rolls and tiles from ½’’ and ¼’’ or thicker are an excellent choice for weight rooms. They are resilient, shock-absorbent, and very affordable. In addition, both rolls and tiles are highly customizable and come in a variety of thicknesses.
Interlocking rubber tiles are a simple, practical weight room flooring solution. This option is more suitable for smaller areas, as you can install them by yourself without much effort.
Conversely, rubber rolls are a better choice if you have a large-scale weight room and want to create a seamless, durable, easy maintenance surface.
Heavy Duty Rubber Tiles
Heavy rubber tiles are designed to withstand tremendous impact and provide excellent shock absorption. They’re incredibly durable, moisture-resistant, and slip-resistant. Moreover, they’re sound absorbent; minimizing the volume and vibrations if you drop a heavy weight.
At J&J Gym Floors, we offer 1’’ thick square weight room tiles. They are sturdy and robust enough to support even the heaviest weightlifting conditions. Performance characteristics aside, our hardy rubber tiles come in a few different colors which allows you to customize the look of your floor and make your weight room unique.
