Good for weight room
Self-installed in Home gym
from St. louis wrote...
It depends what you want to use the product for. If you want a floor for a weight room its a 5 star. If you do the p90x standing kick boxing, then it will work fine. If you do any floor work, yoga, etc, it will tear you up because its rough. You will need a yoga mat on top of it. It was hard to put down, you will have raw hands afterwards. You have to push hard to drop the holes over the plug to get it to hook. The smell will go away in a couple of months. Mopping between the cracks is a pain in the rear. Water gets down between the cracks and will not give you a fresh clean look. If I could find something without the cracks and a little softer I would buy that product. So this could rate between a 3 or 5 star, its really depends on what you need if for.
Extremely difficult to install

The tiles themselves are great as they are strong but have a lot of flex to them. Very easy on the knees during workouts. However, these tiles are next to impossible to "snap" together. The rubber male and female pieces do not snap together easily, nor do they always line up correctly. I had to stretch the material a lot to get every little "nub" to snap into place. I have a 385 square foot room, which called for 48 tiles, and it took approximately 50 hours to get the tiles down, and it's still not perfect. I have lots of lumps due to the little nubs not lining up or snapping down correctly. I am considering scrapping the tiles and ordering rolls as i think the look will be better.
Very Happy

Excellent product, but difficult to put together

I was looking for a clean, quality, commercial-grade type of floor for my workout room in the basement of my home and these rubber tiles are absolutely perfect. The quality is outstanding...the tiles give you plenty of grip for various exercises while having just enough "give" to them so as to not cause foot or joint fatigue. (BTW, I placed my tiles directly onto the concrete floor in my basement.) Because of the shape of my room, I had to cut several of them in order to fit tightly and cleanly against the walls, but with a sharp carpet knife, it was easy to do. My only gripe about these tiles is that they were VERY difficult to "snap" together. As you know, these tiles have a male and a female edge to them, and I couldn't believe how hard it was to get the rubber male knobs to fit into the female openings. I thought they would just snap together and all would be good, but since you are dealing with rubber, things didn't line up perfectly every time so it took a lot of pushing, pulling, and prying in order to get each knob to connect to its corresponding opening in the other tile. Ended up with a couple of blisters on my thumbs from pushing down. I also used a rubber mallet which helped at times. You see, if you don't get every knob snapped in its place, then you will not end up with a nice smooth/flat transition from one tile to the next. Since I do a lot of lunges, steps, and jumps in my workouts, I wanted to have a smooth floor with no chances of tripping or catching my shoe on the lip of one tile that might be a bit higher than the other one. But eventually I got them all put together and it looks great. (Plus, as a guy, I actually like the rubber smell that these new tiles give off, but I'm guessing that will fade away over time.) So...all that to say that while I am extremely pleased with the way my floor turned out, I was just frustrated by how difficult it was to fit or "snap" all the tiles together. Overall, I would still highly recommend these tiles if you have a workout room that needs an awesome floor; these are high-quality, heavy-duty, commercial-grade tiles.

These tiles are excellent for p90x or insanity training. Very good construction. Easy to put together. Does not slide around.

Great product bad smell

Very happy with product not as difficult as many said in write ups to install. I allowed to vent in garage before installing in an upstairs very well ventilated room with numerous windows. It has been 3 weeks and the smell is very bad and not getting better.
not so easy

the product is not so easy to install as seen on the you tube video. Everything has to be perfectly lined up and has the potential to be a bad zipper. The finished product turned out ok however.
Good product, expensive shipping

So far all is good with the rubber tiles. We really struggled going back and forth with the tiles or a rubber mat. I think we made the right choice but the cost of shipping these is ridiculous! These better last forever otherwise we made the wrong choice. Rubber smell is not that bad and does slowly go away over time. Not to hard to install but our area is only roughly 6'x9'
beautiful gym floor

We bought the evolution rubber floor for our gym house and it looks amazing. Love the design and how easy was to install. First two couple of weeks smelled like rubber alot, but in least than 3 weeks it was gone. Great quality and service.
Excellent product!!!

We love the way this product provides a cushion-feel yet is strong enough to lift weights on and doesn't feel "spongy". We hired a wood floor guy to do the install, and edged our floor in quarter-round as we went right to the edge of each wall. We transition to tile at the door threshold, and the height was perfect. No sloped transition piece needed. Was not expensive to have it installed and well worth it, although we feel like we could have done it ourselves.
great flooring

We put this in our home gym and it went together in an afternoon with a little water on the nubbins and a deadblow hammer. The rubber smell is quite strong at first, but quickly subsides in a month or so... if you could air it out for a while in the garage that might help. Otherwise we are very happy with it.

I purchased a few pieces of your rubber flooring and had a wonderful conversation with the customer service lady who was extremely helpful with my order. I explained to her my plans for your materials and she asked me to send some photos of the final project once everything was setup. Thank you for your help, your great customer service and creating such a nice quality.

Weight Lifting Flooring
Self-installed in Home Gym (Basement)
from Columbus, OH wrote...
I used these tiles for gym flooring. This area is primarily used for weight lifting. The product has excellent impact resistance. It takes the impact of 80lb dumbbells without damaging the subfloor. The surface has good traction and is cosmetically equivalent to commercial gym floors. The installation was simple. Per the other reviews, I did lubricate the joints with water during installation. I have no ripples or raised sections. I did have one tile with a cosmetic imperfection. Their customer service was excellent and it was replaced immediately (via FedEx). The tiles are made from recycled tires. As you would expect, the area is going to smell like a tire store for a week or two. There is no smell after that timeframe. The only reason I did not give the product 5 stars was the pricing for the perimeter sections. Not worth the investment in my opinion. I trimmed off the connecting pieces at the edge lines to get the same look. It did take longer to do that, but it looks good at the floor/wall interface.

The floor was easy to install and looks great. My only complaint would be that it is hard to clean and keep clean.

So I was the 1-star review that had a really hard time installing the tiles. The soap and water trick is a miracle. I wish I thought of that earlier!!! I relaid all of the tiles using this method and was able to install 48 tiles in about 2 hours. Thanks for the tip. Rubber flooring Inc should include that in their installation instructions. Thanks again!

I have been impressed by your service as well as the product and pricing. The evolution tile is a quality product. Install was made easier with a soapy water solution to apply to the interlocking joints.
Installation trick

from Columbus Ohio wrote...
As in some of the other reviews, at first, installation by a paid contractor was going terribly. Then he had an idea to get a spray bottle of water and spray the pieces that snap together. After that installation was much much much better. Our 20 x 13 room went from probably a 2 day install to half a day.

Since starting P90X, my knees have been becoming sore. Not any more! These tiles work great. My knees and joints in general don't ache at all. I looked into foam, but realized that foam wouldn't work for my type of workout. Thank you.
