Rubber flooring for a gym room can prevent potentially injurious slips and falls in your home or fitness center. When you consider the activities of gym goers, sports and fitness centers are stages set for mishaps and injuries. With people physically exerting themselves via cardio workouts and weightlifting, the possibility of an unfortunate incident is ever-present. Of course, this is something you can’t control; people go to gyms to push their bodies to get stronger. What you can control is the possibility of slips and falls as a result of your gym flooring.

Gyms and fitness centers are prone to the build-up of moisture from a multitude of sources: sweat dripping from exhausted gym goers, spilled water from water bottles and water fountains and moisture tracked from locker rooms and bathrooms. If a gym is equipped with a pool or sauna, moisture can be tracked onto the gym floor. Then, of course, there is the regular dirt, dust and debris that are transported into the gym via the soles of gym goers’ shoes. Let’s face reality, most people do not get prettied up to go to work-out.

Interlocking gym mats are made of rubber and provide a non-slip surface to passer-bys. The inherent friction coefficient of rubber gives rubber its excellent grip qualities that are retained despite moisture, dirt or dust. What’s more, rubber is inhibits the growth of bacteria and other contaminants. This trait ensures that mold or mildew will not spring up on your gym flooring.
