Customer Review - Rolled Rubber

Glenn from Austin, TX used rolled rubber to floor his home gym.  Here's what he had to say:

"Looks even better than we thought it would. The grey flake makes the room look brighter and spacious. I did the install myself without help. I thought it would take about 4 or 5 hours but it took close to 8 hours to put down.  If you have an empty room that would been about right the right amount of time.

Rubber flooring makes a home gym look professional.
I had two pieces of equipment that it was just easier to leave in the room and move around. The rest I moved to another room. The carpet and tack board had already been removed other than in a closet.This material is heavy so it was hard work moving it around and getting it lined up for one person. I used 3m outdoor mounting tape to secure to the floor.The finished product looks amazing and the install looks professional. You have to look closely to see any seam.

Everyone that has seen it is impressed even my toughest critic the wife. She owns her own business and helps build large commercial buildings for a living."

Thanks, Glenn.  We're glad you're enjoying your purchase.

Rolled rubber is the top selling product for home gym flooring.  It protects your floors and equipment while reducing vibrations from equipment.  The thickness you decide on should depend on a variety of factors:  Are you using free weights?  If so, how heavy?  Aerobic/cardio activity?  Do you battle moisture in your gym area?  What's the surface you'd like to cover?  Is it hard or soft?

How you answer these questions will help us to determine the right product to fit your needs.  Although Glenn opted to attach his flooring with tape, a dry-lay is also an acceptable way to go.  The rubber is heavy enough that tape or glue is really just a precaution rather than a necessity.
