RUBBER FLOOR MAT SIZE & THICKNESS OPTIONS


Flooring for Rubber Mats

Rubber Mats by Size

  • • 3 x 6 (in select products)
  • • 4 x 6
  • • 4 x 8
  • • 4 x 10

Rubber mats come in many different sizes to fit all spaces and needs. These sizes vary between products, but include 3’x6’ (just larger than a traditional yoga mat), 4’x6’, 4’x8’, and 4’x10’ (large enough for workouts with plenty of movement).





Rubber Mats by Thickness

It is even more important to consider the mat’s thickness. Rubber mats can range anywhere from ¼” to 1” in thickness, including 3/8”, 1/2”, 3/4” and more.

Thinner mats are great for light, at home workouts, while ⅜” mats are the standard for commercial gyms. Thicker mats typically include a higher price point, but also (usually) offer more durability and shock absorbency, making them the #1 choice for high impact workouts and Olympic lifting.





WHERE TO USE RUBBER FLOOR MATS


Rubber

**Note: With running or horizontal movement, high impact rolls can break down and flake over time. If you are doing a lot of horizontal movement, we recommend going with our standard rubber rolls.



RUBBER MAT INSTALLATION


Installing our rubber floor mats couldn't be easier. In fact, we're not even sure you'd call it an "installation". You can either lay the mat on top of your existing floor and leave it to do its thing, or you can secure it down with double sided carpet tape to keep it a little more secure during your crazy aerobic sessions.





THE BEST SUB-FLOOR FOR RUBBER MATS

Any concrete, low pile carpet, hardwood, ceramic or porcelain tiles, or even on top of compacted dirt. It is important that any subfloor is leveled to ensure safety and a flat surface for workouts.

**Note: Dark rubber can stain light carpets, vinyl and some hardwood. Easy fix! → If you are laying the products on top of an existing floor, we recommend getting a plastic sheet to place in between the rubber and your current floor.
