Customer Questions

Ask a Question
I am looking for a rubber mat for inside snowmobile trailer. Will this work? Thanks.
Our 1/2" Mega Mats would work for this application. These tiles are very durable and are typically used for ice skating rinks and horse stables. These mats do have an unfinished bottom, which gives the mats extra slip resistance. Because of this unfinished bottom, there could be a variance in height between the mats. To alleviate this, we recommend shaving down the bottoms of the mats with a cheese grater to even the floor out.
I don't have a gym area, and I would like to put and remove mats whenever and wherever I pleased. Is this mat suitable for this task? If not what would you recommend?
Our 1/2" Mega Mats are meant to be used as a permanent or temporary gym floor in both commercial and residential spaces. To use as a temporary floor, you can place the mats where needed and then when finished, roll them back up and place in any area desired for storage.
I have a ?sensitivity to rubber smells. Are your mats rubber smelly?
Our 1/2" Mega Mats do have a slight odor to them, and if you are sensitive you will definitely notice it. The best way to mitigate the smell is to clean the rubber mats with a mild soap and water solution and allow the mats to dry outside so they can air properly.
I am looking for a temp floor to go outside my racing trailer 10x30 (motorcycles). how heavy are they? can they be layed over dirt?
Henry Ford
Our 1/2" Mega Mats are 72 lbs. and can be laid over dirt.
I am getting a commercial grade Elliptical machine for our basement currently with a low pile Berber carpeting. I am planning on putting a mat beneath the machine for hygienic purposes, which should I get and what thickness? Thanks.
Our 1/2" Mega Mats would work perfectly under a commercial grade elliptical. It will help to reduce vibration and noise transfer between floors.
Looking for something to put on stairs from house to basement. May you cut these mats to fit with razor knife? Looking for suggestions.
These mats can be cut with a fresh utility knife, changing the blades and using several passes each time.
I need a mat that is partly 1/2" and partly 1". I was thinking of gluing part of one mat to another. What glue would you recommend?
Charlie Mitchell
If you are going to glue our Mega Mats together, we recommend using our 5900 Series adhesive or our Polyurethane adhesive. Our Polyurethane Adhesive will give you the strongest bond.
I have an aluminum trailer enclosed 24x8.5 with aluminum ribbed flooring. Wanted an insulator and noise control type flooring but wanted a coin roll type. My thought would be to use the mats as an underlayer with the vinyl coined commercial grade you offer over the top of an underlayer. Is this possible or any other suggestions to this?
You can use our Mega Mats as an insulator with our Coin Nitro Rolls on top. The only thing that we would suggest is that you place a piece of plastic between the tiles and the mats. Rubber and vinyl don't mix very well, so, as to not have a nasty stain in your floor years later, we recommend just putting a plastic sheet between the two materials to prevent this.
Are these mats precision cut so they will fit together without any gapping?
Our Mega Mats are not trued / precision cut. When placing several mats together, there is potential for there to be gapping. We recommend when installing these mats for a full room that you install them in a brick pattern. This will minimize the gapping visual.
I want a mat for a work out room for aerobics. What should I get to absorb the shock of cardio workouts, but be strong enough to put a smith machine, treadmill and spinning bike?
Erin Monahan
Our Mega Mats would are perfect as a shock absorbent mat for cardio workouts and are durable enough for a smith machine to be placed on them or any other fitness equipment. These mats were originally designed to be used in barns and stables as flooring for horses which can be quite heavy and large. Since these mats were designed with durability and shock absorption in mind, these mats have been the perfect flooring option for any home or commercial gym.
Would rubber mats be appropriate to cover a space (20 by 40 ft) suitable to drive a vehicle on it occasionally?
Don Whyde
We don't recommend driving over our Mega Mats, but you can drive over them with a vehicle. These mats are made of rubber and would be able to handle the weight of a car. There are a couple of issues that could arise if you were to drive over them. If you don't glue them down, there is potential for the mats to move when turning your wheel. The other issue that you may run into is that any oils that fall on the mats will over time break down the mats.
I am installing a home basement gym over a highly finished porcelain tile floor. Will these mats protect the floor for hand weights up to 50 lbs and a weight rack and benches and for a treadmill and an elliptical trainer?
You can use our Mega Mats as protectant flooring over a tile floor. These mats are very thick and are shock absorbent, allowing you to drop weights on them without breaking the tile underneath. You can also place any fitness equipment on the mats that you like. The equipment will not affect the tiles under the mats.
How flexible are the 1/2" mats? What is the tightest radius they can be bent without breaking?
Our Mega Mats are flexible enough to be rolled up. We do not have any testing around how tight the mats can be rolled, but they can be rolled fairly tight.
Putting a gym in our garage (concrete). Which is best and safest for weight training 1/2" or 3/4"?
Both our 1/2" 4' x 6' Mega Mats and our 3/4" 4' x 6' Extreme Mats are great for weight training. The reason one goes with one over the other is more do to preference than to the actual performance of the two. They both are great for dropping heavy weights on and will help to deaden the impact of the falling weight. The 3/4" mat does deaden the impact more as it is thicker, but the difference is not substantially different.
