Unknown Features Of Rubber Flooring

Rubber has been in high demand recently due to its versatility, durability, easy maintenance and environmentally friendly source. It also comes in an array of colours and styles that is spectacular.

The most common types are mats, tiles and rolls.

Mats come in different sizes and range of thickness and are versatile and easy to install.

Tiles typically come in 12, 18 or 36-inch squares, but can be trimmed and can fit any room or to create custom patterns. They are easily installed as are manufactured with interlocking edges. The best advantage is that individual pieces can be easily replaced.

Rolls sheets can be 4 feet or wider, and up to 50 feet long. Rolls have fewer seams, but the installation is a little more special, that is why they are often used in larger workout areas, event centers or common areas.

Options for textures and finishes.

During the manufacturing process, rubber flooring can be textured. This will help in creating depth and character wherever it is installed. The options include rivets, dimples or studs, intricate waffles and diamond-plate textures.

The standard finish is usually a subtle matte, which is suitable for most athletic installations. For a higher-impact impression, a brighter colour can be chosen. To achieve this the rubber floor is polished with a water-soluble wax emulsion. This provides the shine and makes the floor more durable and even stain resistant.
