Rubber Flooring Best Thickness

Rubber Flooring Thickness Guide

There are a number of different thicknesses of rubber flooring. If you aren’t sure what thickness would work best for your setting our guide may be of some help.
1/4” (6.35mm)
1/4” rolled rubber is great for most home gyms or for walkways that see more foot traffic than weight lifting. It can withstand exercise equipment and light weight lifting. This thickness is not recommended for heavy weight dropping. A wide variety of colors are available in this thickness.
5/16” (8mm)
5/16” rolled rubber is our most popular thickness of rubber flooring. It is perfect for home or professional use and can withstand exercise equipment and medium weight lifting. Another reason this thickness is our most popular is that it offers almost the exact performance of the thicker 3/8”, but weighs less which saves money on shipping. We offer a wide variety of color options in this thickness as well.
3/8” (9.5mm)
3/8” is our second most popular thickness. It can easily withstand exercise equipment and weight lifting up to approximately 100 lbs. This makes it suitable for use almost anywhere in your facility, with the exception of heavy and dead lift areas. A wide variety of colors are available in this thickness.
1/2” (12.7mm)
1/2” rubber rolls and tiles are suitable for use with exercise equipment and in areas where heavy weight lifting takes place. Once you get to this thickness you are most likely better served going with our athletic mats, as rolls in this thickness are extremely heavy. Our mats come standard in 4’ x 6’ but are available in larger custom sizes. There are a wide variety of colors available for our 1/2” rolls and mats.
3/4” – 1” (19mm – 25.4mm)
We offer ¾” & 1” in mats and tiles only. Rolls in this thickness would be too heavy for anyone to handle and too expensive to ship. Our mats and tiles in these thicknesses are great for heavy weight lifting including dead lift drops and can easily withstand heavy exercise equipment. A wide variety of colors are available.
2” – 4.5” (Playground Surfacing)
We offer a line of tiles from 2” to 4.5” thick which are used for playground surfacing. This flooring is excellent for this use because it is durable, attractive and fall height rated. This product is perfect for use on playgrounds, daycares or anywhere you want a safe comfortable floor system for children. Our playground surfacing is made in the USA out of almost 100% recycled rubber flooring products. Many custom colors are available.
