I built a 4-layer sandwich: 3/4 Plywood, 3/4 EVA Foam (tatami mat), 3/4 Plywood, 3/4 Hard rubber mat. All this is so as to drop olympic barbell weights. Works Great! Used urethane mastic to glue layers together.

Was delivered in a reasonable timeframe, about a week if I recall correctly. It does not come in a box or any protective covering, so if it is left outside from delivery you do have the potential of getting it ruined. The unwrapping was a little messy with all the rubber particles, but comes right up with a vacuum. The mat is thick and durable, and is cheaper than their competitors. Highly satisfied with my purchase and would definitely recommend and purchase from them again.
My Police K-9 Dog kept destroying that mat for his cage in the rear of my patrol car. I purchased this product as a replacement because it was thicker than the old mat. It was easy to cut using a utility blade and is definitely serving its purchase. The best part is this flooring is less expensive and better quality than the standard mat that comes with the cage. Highly recommended for an K-9 handlers having a similar issue.
I usually don't write reviews but this mat is amazing! Having spent time trying to do intense cardio activities on everything from yoga mats that tear, to mats designed for equipment that wont stay in place, I was at my wits end. Then I found the mega mat. Its durable enough to stand up to my repeated burpees and floor sprints while being heavy enough to stay in place. Perfect for my medium sized carpeted man room. The only draw back I've seen is that my mat came with quite a few tiny black particles that seemed to shed off the mat in the first few weeks. I chalked this up to the manufacturing process and they are easily vacuumed up. Great job on this one, well worth the money!
Spoke with the representative and she recommended exactly what I needed. Customer service skills were top notched and would recommend them to all my colleague's!
Shipped quickly, had them in less than a week. Ordered to put over/protect carpet while working out doing T25. Does not slip and is sturdy enough to give support as well. Some reviews complained of the odor, but it is minor, smells as you would expect rubber to, and goes away after about a week. I needed to vacuum up small rubber particles after each use for about a week then only about once a week since. I ordered 2 to give my wife and I a total area of 6' by 8' to workout together in, If working out alone, only one is needed. We roll them up and put them away when done. They do take up a bit of room even when rolled and are fairly heavy. Good product.
I ordered 2 of these for my wife's workout area. They're 3/4" thick. The mats lined up perfectly in the space. The mats are strong and durable. Dealing with the customer service was a pleasant experience. Courteous, and friendly. We received the mats in the timeframe mentioned. We will deal with Rubber Flooring again.
Telephone service was excellent in providing advice on the product. It took a week longer than promised to arrive. The mats seem to lose rubber granules; is this a quality control issue in manufacturing? It's not the end of the world, but requires sweeping around the mats weekly.
I ordered this mat for a bedroom that we use as an exercise room. First of all, I didn't think the mat would be so dense! I was looking for something with more give like a yoga mat. I should have know it was bit the mat for me but hoped it would work! The return process is not user friendly at all and shipping charges and re- sticking fees made it prohibitable to do! I luckily found a friend that wanted a mat like this for their garage!
I did a ton of research for the right exercise mat at the right price for my basement exercise room which has the basic cement floor. I checked Amazon and the web and found this company on web. My first mat arrived which I loved so much that I ordered a 2nd to complete the room. Warning: this mat is heavy to move! My husband had to bring inside and downstairs for me. The 1/2 in is thick enough for me to do some cardio workouts (protecting knees and hands) or drop a 5 dumbbell which just bounced. When the floor gets a little damp from sweat it's not too slippery. The mat doesn't move during workouts. It's a small room but it only had a very mild new mat odor. Only downside is the mat is shedding still. It's not a lot but enough to be annoying on my hands during workout. This is why I have 4 stars. Overall I'm very happy with my mat...can't wait for 2nd mat...Buy American!
The mats are beautiful. Came on time,, no problem with delivery .. Called customer service just to check on status and they were really informative and professional... The guy who installed them for me was so impressed with the mats he is gonna order for other projects he's working on... I totally recommend Rubber Floor Inc for your Gym/Studio needs... and NO horrible rubber smell????
I purchased the Mega Mat to place on top of carpet in order to keep from wear and dripping sweat all over it down in my basement when I work out. I couldn't be happier! It's heavy enough it doesn't move when I do side to side movements and cushions my landing very well. The only thing that would be better would be if it could have been manufactured in a 6x6ft square, however I would buy this again if I needed to and I could always buy another and tape it to the other one...
I bought these mats for a very small workout room. They arrrived in a very timely manner and got them with free shipping so I couldn't have been happier with that. The only reason they got 4/5 was me just being very picky. They lost a lot of their rubber granules and made a mess wherever they were transferred prior to being laid. They were also not very rectangular with up to 2 inches of difference on certain pieces. However, they were very easy to cut with an exacto knife and they could not look any better as I got the white and blue speckled. The blue specks are hardly noticeable but add a little to the white room as a whole. I am very happy with the purchase and would highly recommend this product.
These 1/2" mats are perfect. Rubber Flooring Inc. provides the best products, best price and best service.
The entire process was well planned and executed from start to delivery. I am very satisfied with the whole Rubber Flooring experience.

These mats are perfect for our home gym flooring. We converted a 1st-floor bedroom, with a concrete slab and hardwood flooring into our home gym. The room is 11 ft x 14.5 ft and we were able to cover the entire floor with 7 of these mats. It did require cutting 3 of the mats to make the fit seamless from wall-to-wall. I used a T-square, box cutter, leather gloves, and a folded up wardrobe box to cut on. It takes about 5 good cuts through with the box cutter to complete the cut, but its nothing you can't handle. I highly recommend these mats for anyone who is into heavy lifting and wants to make themselves a solid foundation for their home gym!
Perfect size and material for our service shop.
The mats arrived in perfect condition and are as I expected them to be with one important exception--they tear very easily. We unloaded the first 7 mats without incident but on the 8th one of the guys let his corner go (one person in each corner)for about 5 seconds and when the corner folded downward (due to its own weight) the crease turned into a tear before he could grab it again. As long as they stay flat there is no problem but if they aren't picked up and moved very carefully the weight of the mats can cause them to tear if they fold over at all. Be careful!
I got the 4ft by 6 ft 3/4 inch mat, to replace my plain home depot mat. The Rubber flooring mat is very strong and sturdy. It is great for jumping rope in the garage. It does a nice job with absorbing sound and is so much more comfortable on the joints than a flat mat or concrete. The mat is also excellent for lifting a heavy barbell on as it again absorbs sound and protects the floor when putting the weights down. Awesome for not disturbing the wife who sleeps in the bedroom above the garage. They delivered the mat near my garage door so I only had to roll it in and tear off the plastic wrap. You will have to do a lot of cleaning up of the small chards of rubbery debris from the factory cuts. You will have to weigh down the edges for a few hours as it has a tendency to want to curl back into it's delivered rolled up shape. This mat is fantastic.
My girlfriend has these mats in her gym and I have always found them practical. So when remodeling my little 550 square foot ski condo I decided to put them in as the flooring and I am not disappointed! Ski boots? No problem! Dogs? No worries! Someone spilled the spiced wine? Just wipe it up. Customer service was amazing and the mats came much quicker than stated. *This is not a recommendation!! But when installing I used a jig saw and cut the mats 1/8- 1/4" bigger than the space needed and it turned out beautifully. Was so very easy. Thank you Rubber Flooring!
