Description - Our 1/2” Rubber Gym Tiles are ideal for use in heavy-duty commercial applications. These rubber floor tiles are available in border, corner, and center cut tiles to help fit a variety of room sizes. The Rubber Gym Tiles also have an anti-skid diamond pattern surface for added safety and are non-porous and non-absorbent. This means that the tiles are slip-resistant in wet environments and easy to clean up since none of the moisture is absorbed. These tiles are also safe to use outdoors and are resistant to bacterial growth.
Note: - Due to the manufacturing process and nature of recycled rubber, some surface variations such as color distribution or shadowing may exist and tile thickness may vary. Shims may be provided free of charge to assist with any tile thickness issues.
Material – Rubber Gym Tiles are constructed of recycled rubber buffings and virgin colored rubber flecks at a 25% and 75% color density. These recycled interlocking gym tiles are also vulcanized, which means they are formed using heat and pressure to form a solid non-porous and non-absorbent mat surface. This allows for the gym tiles to have the highest tensile, tear, and abrasion resistance on the market for a rubber tile. This means unmatched durability and longevity.

Recommended Uses – The 1/2” Rubber Gym Tiles have been used successfully in a variety of commercial applications. Some common areas where these tiles have been used include in powerlifting gyms, commercial weight rooms and physical fitness facilities, in physical rehabilitation centers and performance training facilities, in lockers rooms, around ice skating rinks as a blade resistant flooring, in baseball dugouts as a spike resistant flooring option, as doggy daycare flooring, as cow mats in barns, outdoors on decks and patios as slip protection, in garages and storage sheds, in children’s playrooms, as a utility room flooring, in basement home gyms, as general anti-fatigue flooring and sound insulating flooring, as a “green” flooring option, and in any other location where a low-cost yet highly durable rubber tile option would be beneficial.
Rubber Gym Tiles are easy to clean and maintain. Maintenance of these rubber tiles typically includes:
- Vacuuming any loose crumbs, dust, or debris from the floor surface when necessary.
- Occasional damp mopping of the interlocking mat with a mild soap and water solution. A few recommended soaps are Dawn dish detergent or Tide laundry detergent.
Note: Do not use any solvent or oil style cleaners such as Pinesol, Lysol, Murphy’s Oil Soap, WD40, paint thinner, etc. since these types of cleaners will break down the flooring over time.

Installation of these interlocking tiles is very simple and usually done by the consumer. Typical installation of these tiles is as follows:
- First, clean your subfloor, so it is free of all dirt, grease, or debris.
- Start in one corner of the room with a corner tile and add border tiles outward along the adjacent walls.
- Leave the other two edges of the room open and fill in the rest of the room, adding center, corner, and border tiles where you see fit.
- After the open floor is covered, go back and cut in tiles along the opposite walls in the room. We recommend leaving a gap along the walls roughly the tiles' thickness being used to account for expansion and contraction of the floor in varied temperature ranges.
Note: When piecing interlocking tiles together, adhesives aren’t usually needed since the weight of the product is usually enough to keep the floor tiles from moving. However, if you do experience movement and would like to ensure that the tiles do not slide at all, you can use some double-sided tape or mat tape around the perimeter of the installation to prevent any movement.
