Can it be used over a wooden outdoor deck to prevent rain seeping through?
Aytekin Ozdemir
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series can be installed over an outdoor wooden deck. They are semi-porous, so some water may seep through, but this will help to diminish the amount of water seeping through greatly. To truly make this a water-resistant flooring surface, we recommend using our floor finish and sealer and using seam sealer glue at the seams of the rolls. This will ensure no water flows through.
We coated our garage floor and I know it will still be slippery this winter when snow falls off our cars. Can this rubber roll be put down without adhesive just for winter?

How do wheelchairs work on rubber flooring? How do electric scooters operate? Since there is nothing to adhere the rubber together, do electric scooters or wheelchairs catch or turn up the edges when turning around?

Wheelchair and Electric Scooters roll over our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series with ease. The rubber rolls are heavy and dense, so the wheelchairs and scooters will not catch on the edge of the floor and pull it up when not adhered.
Is this flooring a synthetic rubber or from the tree itself? Is there off gassing associated with the product?
Paul
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series rolls are made with SBR rubber which is synthetic rubber. We can't guarantee that these rolls are latex free, but they would have very little to no latex in most orders. The product does have some smell to it which can be mitigated by mopping the flooring with a mild soap and water solution and letting it air dry. You may have to repeat this step a few times to get your desired result.
I am looking to find out if this rubber flooring could be used in horse stalls for a barn im building. Is this material Porous?
Anonymous
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Roll - Designer Series can be used as flooring in horse stalls. This product is somewhat porous, but will not allow liquids to go through the floor. If urine were to sit on the floor and dry, what will be left are the salt crystals. These crystals can get stuck in the pores creating a look that may not be desirable. Other than that, these rolls are very slip resistant when wet, will give the horse plenty of comfort and are very easy to clean and maintain.

Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series is very easy to clean and maintain. These rubber rolls are somewhat porous, but if a liquid is spilled on the floor, it will not go through the floor.

You can use our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series as flooring in a bathroom. These rolls are very slip resistant and are more slip resistant when wet.

If 8mm is somewhat porous if used in a kitchen will it absorb fluids/spills or if you clean the spill up quickly will it still leave stain spots. Like a glass of red wine, spaghetti sauce, mustard spot, etc. You know those very stainable type things you find in any kitchen.
If you spill any liquids on our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series the liquid would sit on top of the flooring for a period. If you were to spill say red wine or spaghetti sauce, they would not stain the flooring. One thing you may notice with more solid substances, like spaghetti sauce, is that as you clean them up, there is potential for the sauce to get caught in the pores. When using our rubber flooring in a kitchen environment, we would recommend sealing the floor with our Rubber Floor Finish and Sealer to truly prevent any foreign substances getting in the pores of the floor. Also, sealing the flooring would make it much easier to clean.

You can install our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series over a luxury vinyl floor. The reason that you can install it over a luxury vinyl floor, waterproof, or rigid core floor is due to these products having a wear layer that protects the actual vinyl. If you were to install this over a standard vinyl floor, we would recommend placing a plastic sheet between the vinyl and rubber. This will help to prevent any reaction from happening between the rubber and vinyl.

The higher the color percentage, the more seamless the floor will appear. Our rubber flooring is semi-porous and will dry fairly quickly after being wet.

Are these suitable for an indoor playground for children? With slides etc.

I am considering combining a couple of rolls to make an area rug/mat (approx 8' x 14') to place over medium-pile carpet. This would be used to place exercise equipment and for low impact exercise. Would the mats stay together and in place over the carpet or does it need to be installed wall to wall? Anything else I should be considering for this purpose?
Danielle
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series can be installed over medium-pile carpet. The rubber flooring doesn't need to be installed wall-to-wall. Typically you don't have to place anything under the rolls to keep them in place as they are pretty heavy and will stay in place on their own. If for some reason, the rolls were to move while performing certain exercises, we recommend placing some double-sided tape under the rolls. This should be enough to keep the flooring in place.
If I didn’t want to install this product from wall to wall, will it lay down flat and not create a tripping issue where the flooring terminates?
LORI
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series rolls will lay flat when installed. They will not curl up, creating a tripping hazard. If you would like to eliminate a tripping hazard altogether, you can purchase one of our Rubber Floor Ramps.

The only issue you may run into is that the rolls may fade in direct sunlight. You won't have to remove the paint before you glue the flooring down. You will just need to make sure that the surface is clean of any dirt and debris.
I would like a bevel piece for the room opening. Is this possibe?

I am considering the 8mm flooring for an elevated outdoor covered deck. It would be laid over 3/4" plywood. I have been told that it wasn't a good idea. The claims are that such flooring absorbs heat, becoming very hot, off-gases and smells like old tires, cracks and breaks apart making it difficult to clean. To what degree are any of these claims accurate? If such flooring isn't appropriate can you recommend a better choice?
Roger Wright
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series can be installed outdoors. These rolls will get warm in direct sunlight but will be cooler than concrete in direct sunlight. Our rubber flooring does have a slight rubber smell, which outdoors, will dissipate very quickly. As the rubber warms up, it will not have any more of a rubber smell than when first installed. Some cheaper rubber flooring will have a lot of the issues that you describe here, but our Strong Rubber Rolls are a premium product and have been used in many outdoor applications all over the country with great success for years. So you will not have to look any further than this for your flooring needs.
I’d like to place over tile permanently, is this a good idea? What glue shed I use?
Richie
You can install our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series permanently over tile. You don't have to glue it down, but if you do want to glue our rubber to the tile, then we would recommend using our polyurethane adhesive.
Is this rubber flooring uv resistant such as an outdoor deck?
John Kaasa
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series are not fully UV resistant. The 95% colors are more UV resistant and typically don't fade in direct sunlight, but the colors with less color typically will fade a bit.
Could I use this outdoors under a swing set?

I have a concrete garage floor and wondering if the 8mm rubber rolls would be a good choice and adhere well as I’m converting my garage into a gym.
Amy brody
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series are a great flooring option for any home garage gym. These rolls can be installed over any hard, flat surface and don't have to be adhered. You can park a car on these rubber rolls, but if your car does drip any oil, we recommend placing one of our Nitro Rolls or AutoFloorGuard's containment mats where you park your vehicle. The oil from your car can breakdown the flooring over time causing it to flake. If you did want to adhere the flooring in place, we recommend using double-sided tape or a polyurethane adhesive.
Can the designer series be doubled to increase the height?
Kathy
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series can be doubled to increase the thickness. But you don't have to do that. If you love the look of the rolls but want them thicker, then we would suggest ordering our 15mm Impact Rubber Rolls - Designer Series.
How are the seams treated? Are they glued?
RICARDO PEREZ
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series can be loose laid without having to glue the seams at all. If you are looking to make the seams watertight, we do recommend using our Seam Sealer glue. Since there can be some variance in the width of our rubber rolls, if you have any gapping, our Seam Sealer glue can be used as well to fill in any gapping. The typical preferred method is to just cut the rolls so that the seams but up nice and tight appearing virtually seamless.
How wide are these rolls? Are they a 4', 6', or 12' wide?
Jennifer Nealon
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls - Designer Series rolls are 4' wide.
