Great for basements, these light weight foam rubber tiles are mold and mildew resistant.
Material – Recycled rubber top layer bonded to a closed cell EVA foam rubber base.
Size – 2' x 2' (Note: Tiles do overlap 1.875” where they lock together)
Thickness – 3/8" nominal (~9mm)
Weight – Each 3/8" tile weighs approximately 3.00 Lbs.
Recommended Uses – Our 3/8” Soft Rubber Tiles combine the best of both foam and rubber and can be found as flooring for basements, home gyms, family rooms, as trade show flooring, in light duty commercial gyms, as flooring mats, as equipment mats, in dens, as patio flooring, as workshop flooring and anywhere a comfortable, slip resistant floor is desired. Note: These mats are not normally recommended for use in commercial gyms or areas where heavy weight equipment will be used since the foam backing will compress a fair amount under heavy weight.
Installation of interlocking tiles is very simple and typically done by the consumer. Typical installation of these tiles is as follows:
- First, clean your sub floor so it is free of all dirt, grease or debris.
- Start in one corner of the room with a corner tile and add border tiles outward along the adjacent walls. Add center, corner, and border tiles where you see fit.
- When coming up to an opposite wall, make sure you cut the tiles to fit the area leaving a gap that’s roughly the thickness of the tiles being used to account for expansion and contraction of the floor tiles in varied temperature ranges.
Note: When piecing interlocking tiles together, adhesives are usually not used since the weight of the locked together product is usually enough to keep the floor tiles from moving. However, if you do experience movement and would like to ensure that the tiles do not slide at all, some double-sided tape or mat tape can be used around the perimeter of the installation to prevent any movement.
