Flooring Rolls

What Are Rubber Flooring Rolls?

It can be difficult to find quality floor protection that fits most budgets. No two flooring renovation projects are exactly the same, but most flooring companies tend to treat them that way. Luckily, there are some affordable and protective flooring options that perform well in a variety of applications, like roll rubber flooring. Rubber flooring rolls are long, pliable sheets of elastomer that are easy to install and offer a seamless wall-to-wall finish. Our rubber flooring rolls make for great underfoot options because of their versatility. With other flooring firms you are often offered all-or-nothing deals that involve covering a larger area than you need – a source of irritation to many consumers, because it makes them feel that they have no control over their project. Even more irritating is the fact that people can be left with excess unwanted material that they have no use for. In contrast, rubber flooring rolls are available in pre-cut and custom-cut lengths to match any application. Our rolls of rubber flooring usually come in stocked widths of either 3 feet or 4 feet, and can be ordered in lengths of up to 50 continuous feet. This means you can buy the rolls in any length up to 50ft. This fact reduces the need for fabrication at the installation site and reduces the associated costs. These dimensional options ensure that our rolls of rubber can adapt to a very wide range of different floor layouts. Whether it’s made from recycled rubber tires or natural rubber sap, roll rubber flooring is a premium rubber product that is durable, easy to install, and cost effective.

How Do You Stick Down Rubber Flooring Rolls?

When you buy rolls of rubber flooring in custom-cut lengths, you do not have to spend any of your money on installation professionals or messy adhesives. With roll rubber flooring, you can Do-It-Yourself with the simple installation process. When you buy a custom-cut roll you are not wasting money on excess material that you don’t need, because you’re getting just the right quantity. To install or “stick down” rubber flooring rolls, simply unroll the flooring and trim the edges with a sharp utility knife as needed. Then, secure the roll rubber flooring with a double-sided tape. The tape will help to keep the matting down flat and firm against the surface of the floor. It is always recommended to use double-sided tape during the installation process to keep your rolls of rubber in place. This can prevent your roll rubber flooring from slipping out of place over time and make sure that it stays flat.

Can Rubber Flooring Rolls Protect Existing Floors?

Once installed, rubber flooring rolls act as a protective cover for the surface beneath it, as well as representing a quality flooring type in its own right. These rolls of rubber are naturally abrasion resistant, flexible and elastic, which means that it can survive plenty of rough treatment. This makes rubber flooring rolls the ideal choice when it comes to protecting existing floors. In contrast, most traditional floors are not ideal for abrasion resistance. Surfaces like hardwood, tile, and concrete may appear to be tough and durable at first glance, but they can be damaged quite easily. Heavy objects and high volumes of foot traffic can cause chips and cracks in such surfaces, and this type of damage is very expensive to repair. That is not the case with rubber flooring rolls in place. The material used in these rolls of rubber is very durable and can absorb impact and shock, thereby preventing any damage from reaching the sensitive surfacing below. Roll rubber flooring is also easier to maintain than ordinary surfaces, because it is tough and easy to clean. Rubber flooring rolls can be hosed down with water and cleaned with household soaps for fast and easy maintenance. This means that it will last longer, and you can reduce the replacement frequency when compared with other types of flooring. Rubber flooring rolls will help to protect hardwood, concrete, vinyl, linoleum and other similar surfaces from wear or damage, decreasing your overall replacement and cleaning costs.

Is Rubber Flooring Slip-Resistant?

If you have slip-resistant rubber flooring rolls in place on your surfaces, the entire area will also be much safer than before. Slip-and-fall accidents are one of the leading causes of unintentional injury. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), floors and flooring materials contribute to more than 2 million fall injuries each year. This is likely due to traditional surfaces like hardwood and tile, which become quite slippery when wet. A roll of rubber flooring, on the other hand, will not suffer from that problem. In fact, rubber has a high coefficient of friction and is one of the few materials that can shrug off the slip-inducing effects of moisture. Roll rubber flooring has a natural traction-gain, allowing it to provide excellent grip for feet, shoes, and even furniture. This makes rubber flooring rolls the ideal slip-resistant surfacing, regardless of whether your worried about slip-and-fall accidents or abrasive furniture.

Is Roll Rubber Flooring Expensive?

Rubber flooring rolls present a very cost-effective flooring solution. Part of the reason behind this is due to the type of material used in a roll of rubber flooring. Many rubber flooring rolls are made from natural, recycled, and reclaimed rubber materials to offer a product that is both durable and affordable. Recycled rubber is a durable type of elastomer that is made from old vehicle tires. Just as tires are designed to be very strong and durable products that can stand up to life on the road, the resulting rubber flooring rolls inherit that physical resilience. Repurposed rubber materials demonstrate enhances durability and outdoor resilience, in addition to the positive impact they have on the environment. But the real value to consumers lies within the material’s affordable price point. Thanks to low production costs, recycled roll rubber flooring products are especially inexpensive compared to more traditional flooring options.

Is Rubber Flooring Eco-Friendly?

Though rubber doesn’t immediately come to mind when you consider eco-friendly flooring products, “green” flooring can be found in the form of recycled and reclaimed rubber products. When rubber flooring rolls are created using recycled rubber, it brings the added benefit of providing environmentally friendly products. This is because the tires used in the production of the rolls of rubber are taken out of landfill sites – where they would be left to decompose very slowly – and put back into use. Not only does this reduce the amount of non-biodegradable waste in the environment, but it offers sustainable products that can recycled an endless number of times. This helps to free up space in the ecosystem for waste of a biodegradable nature, and it helps us reduce the overall carbon footprint.
