The Top 4 Reasons to Use Interlocked Rubber Flooring

Looking to install a new set of floors in your home or business? Nowadays, increasingly more businesses and homeowners are exploring the benefits of interlocked rubber flooring as a modern flooring solution. If you are on the fence about whether or not this is the right flooring option for your business or home needs, then here are the top 4 reasons why you should consider using interlocked rubber flooring.

  • Floor Protection and Safety – manufactured from recycled rubber tyres, rubber floors are designed to be a durable and long lasting flooring solution. It does not matter whether it is meant to cover an old concrete floor, a beautiful set of hardwood floors, or a set of expensive marble or ceramic tiles, interlocked rubber flooring offers unbeatable floor protection. Additionally, if you are running a business such as a gym, school or factory, you need floor coverings that are 100% safe and that can only be found with slip-resistant rubber flooring.
  • Durable and Long Lasting – rubber floors are ideal for high traffic areas that are used and abused on a daily basis. Able to withstand heavy machinery, trucks, heavy weights and more, interlocked rubber floors are able to withstand years of wear and tear, and can easily last up to 20 years if cared for properly.
  • Versatile and Ergonomic – you can use interlocked rubber flooring anywhere you require – from entrances, home and commercial gyms, horse trailers, kids playrooms, hospitals and clinics, school facilities, kitchens and basements, garages, nurseries, factories, restaurants, elevators, and ramps to just as a sub-floor protection. Versatile and trendy, rubber floors can be purchased in various patterns and textures. Additionally, they offer superior comfort and excellent anti-fatigue properties for workers who are on their feet all day.
  • Easy Installation – perhaps the best feature of rubber floors is that they are super easy to install and can be fitted by any DIY enthusiast. With no special tools necessary, the floors can be cut to size, aligned and pressed together using your fingers or a mallet. Additionally, interlocked rubber flooring can also be installed over damaged floors such as asphalt, concrete, tile or wood, which means that you do not have to repair the substrate before laying down the rubber. Another great feature of this floor covering is that it does not have to be permanently installed, and can be dissembled and reassembled over and over again.
