Gym Floor Buyers Guide

Whether you're starting a new gym, renovating an existing facility, or setting up a home gym, prioritising gym flooring is essential. Just as a well-designed Cardio area, HIIT Zone, or Strength section can set your gym apart, so can your flooring. Create captivating segments with contrasting styles.

The Importance of Gym Flooring

It's not all about aesthetics. In a commercial setting, your facility's surface will endure a pounding. Your gym floor must be strong, safe, and durable to withstand heavy equipment, foot traffic, and intense workouts. With this in mind, it's no surprise that gym flooring is one of the most sought-after fitness products worldwide.

Key Considerations

Quality: Ensuring your flooring is even is critical for a gym layout. Each rubber tile must be consistently the same thickness, finish, and properly sealed for hygiene. We recommend using 1m x 1m tiles with a 15mm thickness.

Safety: Rubber tiles and astro turf help protect your clients' bodies with their shock-absorbing characteristics and will also help protect the life of your equipment.

Smell: The right type of rubber flooring will have little to no smell. Overpowering rubber smells indicate poor manufacturing with cheap materials.

Density and Durability: Gym equipment is heavy, and gym floors receive high foot traffic. Your surfaces need to be durable and designed to outlast the life cycle of your equipment.

Appeal: While function is important, so is appeal. Bevelled edges on rubber floor tiles elevate the surface appeal of rubber tiles, enhancing the overall look of your facility.

Function: In commercial settings and home gyms, it's important to have rubber tiles underneath pin-loaded machines, racks, cages, cardio equipment, HIIT zones, and boxing sections to prevent injury and minimize equipment slippage.

Creating a Comfortable Environment: Astro turf and rubber tiles help create comfort within your facility by absorbing sound and muffling overall noise. Thickness options include 15mm, 25mm, and 50mm.

Cost Efficiency: Compared to the cost of carpet or concrete, rubber tiles are more cost-effective. They last longer, protect your clients and equipment, and are easier to maintain.

Maintaining Hygiene: Properly sealed rubber flooring is easy to clean, resistant to mould and mildew, and more hygienic for your clients.


Investing in quality gym flooring may seem costly initially, but it pays off in the long run by enhancing the longevity of your equipment, ensuring safety, and elevating the overall success of your facility.
