Rubber flooring is the ideal flooring option for non-slip safety and floor protection. Rubber is naturally a traction-enhancing material that can provide excellent floor protection and create a safe anti-slip surface. Oftentimes, rubberized floor mats are available with added surface patterns that are designed to offer extra grip. In addition, they are versatile indoor/outdoor products that can provide long-lasting protection in the face of damaging environmental factors. Here are 3 commonly asked questions about rubber flooring:
1. What are the Best Floor Mats?
The best floor mats are rubber floor mats due to rubber’s superior protective, comfort, and anti-slip properties. There is a wide variety of rubber floor mats to choose from, such as kitchen, entrance, comfort, and gym, each with a different function. The post-consumer and synthetic rubber variations used to create rubberized floor mats are highly resistant to weathering and the damaging effects of environmental factors.
Rubber floor mats are used for numerous purposes, including surface protection and creating an anti-slip surface. Rubber floor mats are available in different materials that are best suited for certain purposes. For example, kitchen mats are available in grease/oil resistant nitrile rubber material. While, other times, rubberized gel foam is used to create excellent comfort mats, or anti-fatigue mats.
Rubber is the ideal protective material that will absorb the force of impact and resist abrasions. Its flexibility and pliability allow rubber to efficiently absorb damaging energy produced by shock and vibrations. Overall, rubber is the best material for creating floor mats because they can create an anti-slip surface and promote non-slip safety in any setting, whether it be commercial, industrial, or residential.
2. What is Rubber Tile Flooring?
Rubber tile flooring is a mobile and customizable flooring option that is available in the form of interlocking rubber puzzle mats. Interlocking rubber tile flooring is a customizable and easy-to-install temporary flooring option that is used in industrial, commercial, and residential settings. These floor tiles are often used both indoors and outdoors and is easily customized to fit spaces of various sizes.
Interlocking rubber tiles are also a protective flooring option that can protect subflooring from damage caused by abrasions and impacts. In addition, due to their interlocking mechanism, rubber interlock flooring does not require any adhesives or extra materials to install. To install interlocking rubber tile flooring, simply connect the tiles together by their puzzle-like edges and keep adding on more tiles until you have reached your desired size.
Another form of rubber tile flooring come with small plastic connector pins that are placed in the holes the line the sides of the tiles and connected through these pins. Due to its two adhesive-free installation methods, rubber tile flooring is a mobile flooring option that is designed to move with whatever is on its surface which reduces the rate of wear giving rubber tile flooring longer life compared to rubber flooring rolls.
3. What is a Rubber Flooring Roll?
A rubber flooring roll is a long sheet of rubber used to create protective and non-slip rubber flooring. Rubber is a very durable and reliable material that can provide long-lasting floor protection and non-slip safety. Rubber floor rolls are available in custom cut lengths of up to 50 consecutive feet. Due to their length, rubber floor rolls are ideal for covering larger wall to wall spaces due to the sizes they are available.
In general, people install resilient rubber flooring to increase non-slip safety and provide surface protection for sensitive floors. Rubber naturally retains a grippy surface that can increase traction even in the presence of moisture. This means rubber flooring will not become slick even when moisture is present on its surface. Additionally, rubber floor rolls are used to provide surface protection to whatever surface it is installed.
Rubber’s natural elasticity and flexibility allows it to efficiently absorb the force of impact and spread the energy of an impact evenly across the surface of the rubber’s surface to reduce the amount of damaging energy that reaches the subfloor. Rubber floor rolls can provide durable surface protection and non-slip safety in any setting whether it be residential.
