Description - Finding the right flooring for a multi-use fitness room just got a lot easier with PAVIGYM'S Motion virgin rubber tiles. The activity in multi-use fitness rooms is more diverse than any other flooring space and requires a floor that can not only handle the traffic but also help give proper traction and impact resistance. PAVIGYM'S Motion Series handles impacts and vibrations with a property called “Point Elasticity.” This helps to minimize impacts and vibrations from being transferred away from the point of impact, resulting in fewer injuries and damage from dropping dumbbells. Slip resistance is achieved with the way these tiles are constructed. The textured rubber flooring top helps to provide the proper amount of slip resistance whether wet or dry. A 5-year warranty backs PAVIGYM'S Motion Series Rubber Tiles.

Virgin rubber flooring is easy to clean. Maintenance of these interlocking rubber gym mats typically includes:
- Vacuuming any loose crumbs, dust, or debris from the rubber floor tile covering when necessary.
- Occasional damp mopping of the virgin rubber tile surface with a mild soap and water solution. A few recommended soaps are Dawn dish detergent or Tide laundry detergent.
Note: We recommend that all of our virgin rubber floor tiles are damp mopped immediately following installation to remove any residual waxiness on the tile that may still be present from manufacturing residue.
Optional: Virgin rubber tiles may be sealed with a common flooring sealer to help provide a high gloss finish and to further protect your floor from wear.

Installation of interlocking tiles is very simple and typically done by the consumer. Typical installation of these tiles is as follows:
- First, clean your sub floor so it is free of all dirt, grease or debris.
- Snap a chalk line on the sub floor 24” from one wall in your room. Snap another chalk line on the subfloor 24” from an adjacent wall. You should now have a pair of perpendicular lines making an approximate 90-degree angle.
- Begin laying the interlocking tiles along the chalk lines, snapping the locks together as you go.
- Leave the perimeter of the room open until the field is installed.
- After the field is covered, go back and cut in lines along the walls in the room. Leaving a gap at the wall roughly the thickness of tiles being used is recommended to account for expansion and contraction of the floor tiles in varied temperature ranges.
Note: When piecing interlocking tiles together, adhesives are usually not used since the weight of the locked together 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, some double-sided tape or mat tape can be used around the perimeter of the installation to prevent any movement.
