We replaced carpet with your Eco-Lock Rubber Tile in our fitness room.
Prior to moving into my new home, I spent a couple months researching for flooring for a home gym. I wanted to convert one of the extra bedrooms into a workout room. I was hoping to find durable mats that I could place on top of my laminate floor to protect them. I knew I wanted interlocking tiles for easy installment and removal for the future. I came across this website and found exactly what I was looking for. I ordered a sample to figure out the thickness and color I wanted. I ordered the Eco-Lock Rubber tiles (1/4”) with blue and eggshell flecks. The fact that all the tiles came with edges sold me on these. I ordered the thinner ones mainly due to shipping cost. With all the costs of moving to a new home I didn't want to break the budget with the home gym.
Installation: I took about 5 hours to install in a 11x14 bedroom by myself. I started on one corner and worked my way down. The hardest and most time-consuming part was cutting the edges to fit. I triple measured and used a razor blade (5-10 passes per cut). I probably had to change the blade 3-4 times. The actual laying of tiles that didn't need cuts only took 30-45 minutes.
I have had this product installed for 7 months and it is amazing. It looks amazing and feels great. I have received a countless number of compliments from my family and friends. The floors make my small home gym look professional and more expensive than what it really cost. The tiles did make my closed room smell like rubber for 2 months. But it wasn’t very strong and didn’t bother me at all. I recommend these tiles to anyone looking to make a home gym at their house.
Once in place and interlocked, the tile joints are practically invisible. Only complaint is the lingering aroma of fresh rubber, more appropriate for an automobile showroom than a residential living/working space. Hoping the the volatiles will soon be done out-gassing, leaving the room odor-free.
Used in the basement. No smell, easy to cut, easy to install. The cement floor is quite uneven, but the tile lays flat with no buckling or wrinkles. Product was delivered well packed and wrapped.
Great price and quick turn around.
Once the flooring was placed on a solid surface (and not laid directly over carpet), it worked great.
We will be buying more for sure.
I purchased these tiles based upon the reviews that I read about the durability and the ease of install. I found the product to be surprisingly heavy and quite durable. The design makes it simple to install. I would highly recommend this product to anyone and would definitely purchase them again.
I ordered the rubber tiles and found them very easy to install myself. The rubber cut easily with a vinyl utility knife from the local hardware store. I completed a 1,500 square foot installation in one day. The folks on the phone at rubberflooringinc were very helpful in giving me installation tips. The product is really nice and we have had many compliments on the finished product! Thanks!
Our basement had flooded for the third time in 2 years, and I vowed to not go through the "restoring" process again - So, in looking for alternatives we found soft carpet tiles and are extremely pleased with the look, feel, and wear of them thus far! If we flood again, we'll simply pull up the tiles and replace them - far less expensive than carpet/padding replacement. Until we can afford to fix the bigger issue, we'll be comfortable and thrilled with our flooring choice!
My wife and I each workout at least 5 days each week on it, so we wanted to buy a good quality floor. I am thrilled with how the floor feels underfoot. This was definitely the right choice and I am very pleased with this purchase. I was able to install this floor in under two hours, and that included cutting one edge to fit the room. I was a little concerned about how difficult the cuts would be, but with a sharp knife, it was very quick. I've already recommended Rubber Flooring to two friends who are looking to upgrade their workout rooms, and would recommend them to anyone else.
Our old dog has a spinal condition so has trouble walking on surfaces like linoleum. We put down the rubber flooring over the linoleum in the mud room that leads to the backyard for him. He loves it and no longer slips! Plus, the interlocking tiles were very easy to install.
I installed this throughout my living room and dining room over our hardwood floor because we have an elderly dog who can no long walk on the hardwood. This has helped tremendously...AND it actually looks GREAT.
I got the black with red specks....and I was thinking I would just have to deal with horrible rubber flooring in my home to help my dog, but I actually am SUPER PLEASED, not only with the appearance (which it looks great, and you cannot see the seams) but it has helped my dog from slipping on the hardwood, and she has built up more strength because she can now walk so much better.
I am really surprised how much I like this in my living room!
Bought this for a cold home entry way. It looks excellent there and really warms up the space. I've gotten so many compliments on it. Very easy to install. Quality supperb. No rubber smell.
Awesome! Easy to install and looks great.
I purchased another set of 30 Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles in order to extend the flooring in the basement a year after the first installation into two more basement utility rooms. The tiles arrived promptly and it's great that they match perfectly with those I purchased earlier. The Eco-Lock Tiles provide a very satisfactory solution for the basement, which had a moisture problem prior to the installation. A layer of 5 mil plastic sheeting was first laid to cover the raw concrete floor. Now, the basement is warmer, humidity is normal, and it feels very comfortable. I strongly recommend this product.
Company went above and beyond. My son was moving and wanted just 8 pieces to put under smith machine. Shipping says 10 to 14 days. That would have been too late so I called to cancel. They were responsive and got my shipment to me within a couple days. It's just what was needed to put on cement floor before reassembling the machine
I put these tiles over my hardwood floors in my home gym. They work great and were easy to install. It took me about 1.5 hours to do a 12x12 room. I ordered samples before and like the eco flooring the best with red and white flakes.
Here's my floor.
I recently decided to upgrade my home work gym. As i researched multiple options which included trips to Home Depot and Loews, I found this company on line. The square footage estimator was the first thing that caught my attention. It immediately helped me put an accurate cost on the project. The multiple tile options that they offer sealed the deal for me. The product arrived promptly and was very easy to install, with no wasted product which I appreciated. I was concerned that the tiles might not stay together with traffic. They not only stay together well, but it is almost impossible to see where the tiles are joined. It looks like a solid mat. Very happy with this purchase and this company.
I bought the Eco-lock tiles for a fairly large home gym that we recently put in while finishing our basement, about 550sf. I decided to do the install myself even though I wouldn't consider myself very handy. It was actually quite easy to do this, overall. Between my wife and I, I'd say we spent about a combined 10 hours completing the flooring; much better than paying the $1600 my basement finishing company wanted to install it. The finished product looks fantastic and you'd never know it wasn't professionally installed. That's not bragging on my part, it's really just that easy to do yourself.
Just a few of notes to assist with your install: 1) I was just using a box cutter and swapping out the blades every 20 tiles or so, but still found it pretty difficult to cut tiles. 2) While the tiles are legitimately 24"x24", if you're doing a large space like I was, you really have to account to lose about 10% of your tile space when you tear off the side/corner pieces since most of the tiles are going to be center tiles. Even though I used the calculator on the site, I ended up short and had to order another 20 tiles. 3) Maybe this is common knowledge if you're not a novice, but you want to minimize the number of cuts you're doing. Once again, if you're doing a large space, start laying tile from the corner of your longest straight walls and build out from there.
Very pleased with product and ease of installation. Used in entryway and work/tool room to provide a weather-resistant area. Separate tiles allowed us to move a washer/dryer enough to install the tiles in a small area then reconnect quickly. We used a sharp utility knife to cut as well as a "Fien" (operator preference). No odor (except when using the Fien to cut :-))
We got the beige-brown speckle and it looks pretty good next to the wood floor we also installed.
Shipping and customer service was good and timely. Would recommend this product and company.
