Why choose rubber flooring for your gym?

Safety and comfort first

Safety and comfort are essential elements for any gymnasium. A rubber floor recycled offers exceptional shock absorption, reducing the risk of injury to both users and equipment. This type of flooring is ideal for environments where falls and impacts are frequent, such as heavy lifting areas. In addition, the non-slip rubber surface ensures a secure grip even when the floor is wet, further reducing the risk of accidents.

Noise reduction is another significant benefit, as it dampens the noise of falling equipment and footsteps, creating a quieter and more comfortable training environment.

Durability and maintenance

Recycled rubber flooring is extremely wear-resistant, making it perfect for heavily trafficked areas such as gyms. They last considerably longer than other materials, ensuring a long-term investment. These floors are also easy to clean and maintain, requiring simple daily cleaning operations.

Stain and water resistance means that the floor will remain in excellent condition even after years of heavy use. In addition, recycled rubber flooring is eco-friendly, made from recycled materials from discarded tires, helping to reduce environmental impact.

What floor to use in the gym?

When it comes to choosing the right floor for your gym, there are several options available on the market. It is important to consider factors such as safety, comfort, durability, and maintenance. The main types of flooring include:

Types of gym flooring

Rubber flooring

Recycled rubber flooring is an excellent choice for those seeking an environmentally friendly solution without sacrificing quality. Their features include significant shock-absorbing capacity, which is ideal for weightlifting areas and other high-intensity training areas. Weather resistance also makes these floors suitable for use in outdoor areas (best to choose medium-grain models such as ECO-GYM), ensuring that they remain in good condition regardless of weather conditions. Design versatility is another advantage, with a wide range of patterns and thicknesses available to meet any aesthetic or functional need.

EVA Foam Flooring

EVA foam flooring is soft and cushioning, often used in stretching or martial arts areas. This material offers excellent cushioning, but not the same durability as recycled rubber, making it less suitable for high-intensity areas. EVA foam is easy to install and extremely lightweight, but may require more frequent replacement than recycled rubber flooring. However, it remains a good option for specific areas where comfort and cushioning are priorities.

PVC Flooring

PVC flooring is easy to install and offers good wear resistance, but can be less effective in terms of shock absorption than recycled rubber. PVC is water and stain resistant, but it may not offer the same level of comfort and safety as rubber flooring. The surface may also be slippery on wet floors. This type of flooring is often used in areas where ease of installation and stain resistance are priorities, but for a safer and more comfortable training environment, recycled rubber remains the best choice.

How to clean rubber gym floor?

Cleaning and maintenance of rubber gym flooring is essential to ensure its durability and safety. Here are some practical tips on how to keep rubber flooring in top condition:

1. Daily Cleaning: Use a vacuum cleaner or broom to remove dust and surface debris. This helps prevent the accumulation of dirt that could damage the floor over time.

2. Weekly Cleaning: Wash the floor with water and a mild detergent. Avoid harsh chemicals that could damage the rubber surface. Use a mop or floor cleaning machine for deeper cleaning.

3. Stain Removal: For difficult stains, use a specific cleaner for rubber floors. Apply the solution to the stain and scrub it with a soft brush.

4. Periodic Maintenance: Check the floor regularly for damage or wear and tear. Replace damaged sections to maintain the safety and aesthetics of your gymnasium.
