Rubber flooring has become popular for various settings, including sports flooring in gyms and playgrounds. Nowadays, it is being used more widely in homes and commercial buildings. 

Rubber floors are resilient, durable, and easy to maintain. Moreover, they come in many different colours and designs to match the decor of any space. While rubber flooring can be more expensive than other options, its durability makes it an excellent long-term investment. 

The following are the main advantages of installing rubber flooring in your home or commercial space.

Rubber’s natural elasticity makes it durable and resilient. Rubber floors can absorb impacts, making them popular in gyms and martial arts schools

Absorbs Impact

Working out, weightlifting, and doing sports can put the joints under a lot of stress. However, rubber flooring can significantly reduce the impact on the joints, especially in the knees, hips, and back areas.

Rubber flooring can absorb heavy impacts, making it an excellent choice for sports facilities and gyms. This reduces the risk of injuries and ensures users can safely enjoy their activities.

Easy to Maintain

Despite common misconceptions, rubber flooring is easy to maintain. To keep it clean, vacuum the floor regularly to remove dirt and debris and mop the floor with a mixture of mild detergent and water at least once weekly. 

It’s important to avoid using harsh chemicals when cleaning rubber floors, as they can cause damage. Additionally, it’s essential to clean up any spills quickly to prevent damage to the rubber.

Slip Resistant

Rubber flooring is known for its exceptional slip resistance, which usually exceeds the required standard of the “coefficient of friction.” Due to this feature, rubber floors are frequently used in gyms, and the high level of slip resistance also makes them a popular choice in playgrounds, healthcare facilities and nursing homes.

Rubber becomes more slip-resistant when it’s wet. This means that water from spills, sweat, or condensation won’t increase the risk of injuries. Due to this property, rubber flooring is also an excellent choice for outdoor workout spaces.

Water Resistant

Rubber is water resistant. When adequately sealed, water will not be able to reach the subfloor.

Eco-Friendly and Recyclable

Rubber is a material derived from the sap of rubber trees. The sap is extracted in a manner that does not harm the tree’s growth, making it a highly renewable resource. Additionally, rubber is recyclable and can be reused for various purposes.

Recycled rubber flooring can be repurposed as mulch, playground surfaces, and other products.

Quick and Easy to Install

A significant benefit of rubber flooring is that it is quick and easy to install.

Rubber floor tiles can be easily installed by piecing them together like a puzzle. Heavy enough to prevent slipping, there is no need for adhesive. Rubber flooring rolls can be installed by simply rolling them out.

Our team usually installs rubber floor tiles and rubber rolls for a home gym setup within a single day. 


Rubber flooring is a popular choice for gyms and weight rooms, although it can be on the expensive side. However, the benefits of having a durable and long-lasting flooring option with features such as shock absorbency and a non-slip surface make it a worthwhile investment in the long run. Despite the initial cost, the positive characteristics of rubber flooring can provide a safer and more comfortable workout environment for gym-goers.

Non-Toxic and Odourless

Many rubber floors have a noticeable smell from the rubber material and the release of fumes from the adhesive that holds the floor together. 

However, not all rubber flooring products have a strong odour, and Titan Rubber Gym Flooring products are non-toxic and almost completely odour-free. 


It’s a common misconception that rubber flooring may not be the most stylish option because it tends to be black, the natural colour of rubber. 

However, these days, various rubber flooring options, such as jigsaw mats and EPDM color flecks, are available to fit your style and budget.
