Rubber Flooring

Red industrial rubber flooring

Rubber flooring has been widely used for many years in industrial and commercial settings such as factories and gymnasiums; nowadays, its advantages are being increasingly recognised in homes, hotels and restaurants.

The Advantages of Rubber Flooring
Rubber flooring is amazingly versatile. It can be used wherever a protective or cushioned surface is required, in settings such as play areas and gyms. In shops and factories, it is used to protect fragile materials and provide electrical insulation. In hospitals and clinics, rubber flooring can reduce noise and increase comfort for patients travelling in wheelchairs and trolleys. Hotels and restaurants value rubber flooring because of the way it controls noise levels in busy areas. All of these benefits, and more, can also apply to a rubber surface used at home.
An Eco-Friendly and Resilient Material
Natural rubber flooring is made from latex, the sap of a tree, which is grown commercially in tropical countries. The sap is harvested without harming the tree, and more trees can be planted as required; rubber is therefore a completely renewable resource, and one of the most eco-friendly flooring materials you can choose. Another reason for choosing rubber flooring, which will also appeal to the environmentally-conscious, is that it is strong and durable, so will last for many years before needing replacement.
Types of Rubber Flooring
We can supply a wide range of rubber flooring in Swindon and the surrounding area. There are various types to suit the different settings in which it is to be used:

  • Tiles – Rectangular or Interlocking
    Rubber tiles come in a variety of forms, and can be used both indoors and outdoors. Interlocking cushioned tiles are particularly suitable for gyms and sports areas. Studded tiles come in wide range of colours and are a fashionable choice for kitchens and bathrooms. Tiles can also be textured and patterned.
  • Sheeting on a Roll
    Rubber flooring in sheet form comes on a roll and is laid just like carpet. This versatile material is available in a range of colours and thicknesses, and can also have an embossed design which further enhances its non-slip properties. It can be cut to fit round corners and obstacles.
  • Rubber mats
    In high-traffic areas, rubber mats are an excellent choice of flooring. Very durable, they are easy to clean and provide sound insulation as well as protection from damage for equipment and other surfaces. In some industrial and commercial locations, their electrical insulation properties can also be useful.
  • Recycled
    An especially environmentally-friendly solution, recycled rubber flooring is often used in settings such as outdoor play areas. Because it is manufactured using a low-energy process and from materials such as used car tyres, it makes very little demand on the earth’s resources. It has other advantages too, such as being very hard-wearing.
