Ask a Question
I have newly installed carpet and am looking to protect it from indentations from a stationary bike and treadmill? Any experience on this and will it be stable?
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designers Series have been used as a custom mats under treadmills and stationary bikes and will keep them from indenting your carpet. If the carpet is a low pile or medium pile carpet, stability will not be an issue.
Can these tiles be placed over vinyl plank flooring without the problem of discoloring the vinyl underneath?
Like oil and water, rubber and vinyl do not mix. We do not recommend placing rubber flooring over any vinyl due to the fact that discoloring of the vinyl can occur over time. But one way to get around this is by placing a plastic sheet between the rubber flooring and the vinyl. This will help to prevent staining of the vinyl underneath.
Can I use it in a residential garage that will double as a workout room. We will be parking a car on it also.
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designer Series can be installed in a garage. If a car is parked over them, you would have to make sure no oil from the car gets on the flooring surface. Oil from the car can cause the floor to break down. Our rubber tiles are not the best product for this application due to separation that can occur when a car turns it wheels on the floor, but can still be used for this dual purpose. We do have these same colors in a roll format that will work better and we do also offer softer PVC tiles that will better handle the oils from the car and tires. Those tiles are part of our Flex Tile series.
Can I put this over rental carpet?
You can place our 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designer Series over rental carpet.
What specs do you have on the chemical makeup of the materials and processes in these tiles to take into account with small children playing around them indoors?
Spec sheets and MSDS sheets can be obtained for the 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designer Series from our customer service reps via email. All of our rubber flooring is thoroughly tested and is safe for kids and adults alike.
We want to place rubber tiles/mats on a hardwood floor, because we will be using half of our bonus room for exercise. We may want to remove the tiles later. Will they damage the hardwood? Should we use double stick tape for stability, even if we place the tiles wall-to-wall?
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designer Series tiles can be placed over hardwood. These tiles do not need any tape for stability when placed wall-to-wall. When interlocked they hold each other down. The tiles typically do not stain hardwood, but there can be a possibility of staining over time. If staining is a concern, you can place a plastic sheet underneath the flooring.
Will a concrete floor sweat under the rubber tiles or do you have to paint the concrete first?
Concrete is a porous surface and can sweat if there is a water issue. If you do have water coming up from the concrete, you can either seal the floor or place a plastic sheet between the flooring and the concrete.
These will be installed in a computer room. What is the ESD rating of these mats? Is there any issue with installing the tiles over low-pile commercial carpeting? Also, on the outer edge pieces, are there separate pieces available to square the mats interlocking sides off or do i just cut them off? Can I roll chairs on this mat?
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designer Series tiles are not tested for ESD. So no rating can be given. These tiles can be installed over a low pile commercial carpet. To create a smooth edge, you would have to cut the tiles with a straight edge and a utility knife. Since these rubber tiles are dense and and smooth, a chair can be easily rolled over them.
We have a basement that sometimes leaks in water when it rains heavily--usually when our gutters are full of leaves and debris. We've had to rip up our carpet down there and I'm looking for a convenient solution other than replacing the carpet. Would these tiles be able to withstand some water and are they easily removed to dry out and put back down?
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designer Series are a great solution for your basement issues. Since these tiles are interlocking, if your basement were to flood you can easily remove the tiles and let them dry. Once dried and cleaned, you can then easily place them back in the basement. Also, if you start to see the basement flood, you can start to move the tiles before they all get wet saving you some time cleaning.
I don't need 50 tiles. Why can't I just get 25 tiles of the 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designer Series?
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designer Series are custom made in batches. The minimum batch amount that can be made is 50 tiles. This helps to keep the color of the floor consistent.
What do the percentages stand for next to color names - e.g., Coffee Creek is 95% and Terracotta is 10%?
The numbers next to the colors stand for the amount of color that is present in the tiles. So the amount of color that is in our Terracotta tile is 10%, whereas in our Coffee Creek tile it is 95%. So the higher the percentage, the less black you will see.
Can your 8mm rubber tile design series be used behind a bar or restaurant? Spills will happen and the floor is mopped every day .

I sell Headstone monuments and I'm looking to replace the current tile floor (over concrete). What product do you sell that would hold up to our moving heavy monuments across the floor without causing any damage to the floor. Monuments are then place on boards while on display in showroom.
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designer Series would hold up to heavy monuments being moved over them.

We do recommend when moving anything over any flooring type that one uses furniture sliders or something similar as to not cause unintended damage to the floor.
Which of the rubber tiles has the least rubber smell after installation?
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designer Series have the least rubber smell of all of our recycled rubber products. The more color our rubber has, the less odor it will have.

Can the 8mm Coffee Creek color tile hold up in my home gym with a Parabody universal machine on it, and when I drop a maximum of 150-pound barbell free weights on it? My wall-to-wall carpet is getting chewed up from me dropping barbells on it.
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles - Designer Series would hold up well in your home gym with equipment on it and also with barbells being dropped on them. These tiles are the same as the flooring that is used in commercial gyms. In the area where you drop the 150 lb dumbbell, we would recommend adding a little extra padding. If you add our Premium mat in that area, it will not only protect the tiles long term but will also protect your subfloor long term. This type of setup is the same that you see in a commercial gym for those very reasons.
