I was wondering how your product would hold up to being put in a horse trailer. Our horses weigh an average of 1000 lbs and of course would have horse shoes on. The price of rubber stall mats is through the roof and we really like the price of your flooring. Thank you in advance for any help in this matter.

Need new flooring for a bar. Lots of spills. Mopped almost daily. Was thinking rubber as less glass breakage and not slippery when wet. But will it hold up to bar stools and booze spills??
Mark
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls are very durable and would be able to handle stools on them and beer being spilled on them. Rubber is more slip resistant when wet, so it will work perfect for your application. We would recommend using furniture sliders under the stools so they can be moved easier.
Can water based adhesives be easily removed from the surface of this flooring?
Anonymous
Water-based adhesives can be easily removed from our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls. We recommend not using any acetone or other harsh chemicals as they will destroy the rubber. With some soap, water, and elbow grease, you should be able to remove most water-based adhesives with ease.
What is the best solution to giving the black with red specks a wet look?
GG
To add a shine or sheen to our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls, we recommend applying our Rubber Floor Finish and Sealer to your floor. This will give you that 'wet look' or shine that some people are looking for. For proper care and application of our Rubber Floor Finish and Sealer, please follow the instructions on the bottle.
I have a new concrete floor in the gym area we are building. Do we need to put a vapor barrier under the tiles?
Rick Meade
You would not need to put a vapor barrier under our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls. If you do have a moisture issue, you can either seal your concrete or place a vapor barrier under the flooring. But it is not required. Our rubber rolls are mold and mildew resistant making them great for any area that may have moisture issues.
What about a food truck? Would this product be a good (sanitary) flooring option for easy cleaning, non-absorbant surface?
JD
You can use our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls in a food truck. These rubber rolls are very easy to clean and maintain and are mold and mildew resistant. To keep these rolls truly sanitary at all times, we recommend using our Rubber Floor Finish and Sealer to seal the floor. This will seal the pores in the floor and prevent any dirt and debris from getting caught in the rubber.
Will this mat hold up on the bottom of floor in boat. Is it slippery when wet.
boat floor
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls can be installed as flooring in a boat. A great property of rubber flooring is that it is more slip resistant when wet. So you will be in a safer situation with these rolls as your flooring vs. other flooring types. The only things you may notice is that the rolls may fade in the direct sunlight and that there may be some salts that embed themselves in the pores of the floor depending on what type of water this boat is going.
Could you please recommend which your rubber rolls can be use in direct sunlight for many years. I am planning to use it as roof shringles in my house. Thanks
Anonymous
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls can be laid in direct sunlight for many years. The only thing you will see, as with anything, there will be some fading. Other than that, these rolls will be able to withstand the daily onslaught presented in an outdoor environment.
How do you advise adhering the rubber mat down to the floor?
Shari Goldberg
For most home gym installations, you can use double sided tape to adhere our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls to the subfloor. For commercial installations, we recommend using glue to install the rubber to the subfloor.
I am looking for flooring for our dog daycare. Have you had anyone use the 8mm for this type of application?
Matt Dinwiddie
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls have been used in doggy daycares. We recommend sealing the flooring with our Rubber Floor Finish and Sealer and using our Seam Sealer glue at the seams. This will help to protect the floor and keep any urine from getting into the small pores in the floor and under.
Is there anyway to get the 8mm products in 1 seamless 7 foot wide by 16 foot long piece? I have an enclosed trailer and would like to cover the entire floor area.
Tim

I would like to lay down 2 strips of 15' next to each other for a work area within a room. They would not be laid wall to wall however. It would be over concrete. Will these mats slide around if they were used for plyometric type workouts not being wall to wall?
Sara Esser
In most cases, our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls would be heavy enough to not move while doing your Plyometric exercises. In the rare chance that there were to be some movement, you can use some double sided tape underneath the rolls to keep them in place.
Can I lay your rubber flooring on top of finished hardwood floors without ruining the finish?
Stafford
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls can be installed over hardwood flooring without ruining the finish in most instances. If you are concerned about the rubber ruining the hardwood flooring underneath, we recommend placing a plastic sheet underneath the rubber flooring.
If you put a weight stack on this, is anything needed so as to not leave a permanent compression in this flooring?
Bryan
Depending on the weight and how long the weight stack is on the floor determines if a permanent indentation will occur. For most home gym installations, a weight stack on our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls won't have a permanent indentation. For commercial installations, it is very likely there will be an indentation. There really isn't a great way to prevent a weight stack from leaving indentations. You could use furniture sliders, but you run the risk of the weight stack being unstable.
Would this type of rolled flooring work in a residential kitchen?
Anonymous
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls would work perfectly in a home kitchen. These rolls are very durable and slip resistant when wet and are easy to clean and maintain. All you would need to do to keep them clean is vacuum any large dirt and debris and mop the floor with a mild soap and water solution. We recommend using a synthetic mop when doing so.

Do you recommend putting the mat over granite tiles?

Would a chair with rollers be able to roll around easily?

Are these mats "no smell"?
George
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls do have a smell to them. Since they are made from rubber, it does smell like rubber. This smell will dissipate on its own over a few weeks. To help dissipate the rubber smell faster, we would recommend mopping the floor with a mild soap and water solution and then letting it air dry. You may have to repeat this process a few times. Ventilation is key, so if you can put fans in the area where the flooring will be installed and open some window, it will speed up the process as well.
Hi, I was wondering if this product can be used outside for kids to play and so they don't get hurt if they fall. Would it work for that?
james
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls can be used as flooring for play areas outdoors. These rolls are very easy to clean and maintain and also very slip resistant even when wet. They are mold and mildew resistant and will provide your play area with added bounce and comfort. These rolls are not fall-height rated, so they will not prevent major injury if a child were to fall from any height. These rolls are also not UV stable, so they will fade a bit in direct sunlight.
Any reason NOT to use rubber on a residential kitchen floor?
Victoria C. KOPPEL
You can use our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls as a kitchen floor. Our rubber flooring is very slip resistant and more slip resistant when wet, so you won't have to worry about slipping if some water were to get on the floor unlike when you have a tile or vinyl floor. Rubber is also shock absorbent, so if you were to drop something, it is more than likely to bounce rather than shatter into a million pieces. Now, rubber flooring is somewhat porous, so if you were to spill something and let it dry out, some of the dried up material might get in the floor, but not through. To prevent this, we recommend sealing the rubber flooring with our Rubber Floor Finish and Sealer. This will keep all the great benefits of having a rubber floor while making your rubber floor easier to clean and maintain.
I am building a couple of Rolle Bolle courts in the basement of my establishment. The existing floor is concrete. Rolle Bolle is a Belgian game that is usually played on a hard clay type surface. I am looking for something that can be replicated that as close as possible short of filling my basement with dirt. You can google Rolle Bolle and see what I am talking about. Can rubber flooring be used for this?
DARRELL RAKESTRAW
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls would be a great alternative to clay for a Rolle Bolle court. These rubber rolls are dense enough to allow the Bolle to roll properly.
Can this be rolled out and up easily? If it's installed on a garage floor, can it withstand the weight of the vehicle without deforming? Can it be washed easily?
Peter O'Karma
Depending on the size of roll you purchase rolling and putting away our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls can be pretty easy. You can park a car over our rubber rolls. The car would not indent the rubber rolls. These rolls are used in commercial gyms that have heavy equipment on them and are not deformed typically by this equipment. You can wash our rubber flooring very easily with a damp synthetic mop and a mild soap and water solution. Also, in a garage, you can hose our rubber flooring down without destroying it. You would then just let the floor air dry.

Can this floor be installed directly over an existing vinyl floor? The floor is going to be used for a pediatric physical therapy clinic.
santiago restrepo
You can install our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls over an existing vinyl floor if you don't care about using the vinyl flooring as the main flooring surface going forward. Vinyl and rubber typically don't mix. Vinyl won't cause any issues to the rubber flooring, but the rubber flooring can potentially stain the vinyl. This process happens over a period of time and would make the vinyl unusable.

Would this flooring be useable as a handicap shower floor (wheelchair accessible)?
Bill
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls could be used as flooring in a shower. These rubber rolls are very slip resistant and are more slip-resistant when wet.

You can seal the floor with our Rubber Floor Finish and Sealer, or you can leave the flooring unsealed and just disinfect the flooring from time to time with our Gym Floor Disinfectant. Cleaning of our rubber flooring is very easy with the use of a mild soap and water solution.
Can vinyl cutouts be applied and sealed to this to create sensory mats for children?

How do you join two rolls on the long edges, so you don't get 'gaposis' along the seam?
callmeBob
So our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls and all of our rolled rubber flooring is approximately 4' wide, but are not exactly that. So to create a seam that won't have gaps here and there what we recommend is to place one roll on top of the other to get the seam as straight as possible. The overlap on this doesn't have to be very large, a few inches at best. Once the seam is straight, you can use some double-sided tape under the rolls or place some seam sealer glue between the seam. Both methods will ensure that the rolls will not gap. You can also just use our seam sealer in conjunction with the double-sided tape without cutting the seams straight to keep them from gapping. The tape will keep the rolls in place and the seam sealer glue will lock and fill in the flooring.
Can the rubber rolls be placed directly on porcelain ceramic tiles without staining them?
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls can be installed over any hard, flat surface. So these rubber rolls can be installed over porcelain and ceramic tiles, concrete, plywood, asphalt, and the like with ease. These rolls would not stain tile flooring.
Can your product be placed over an uneven basement floor (previously some type of vinyl, now removed), without damaging the rubber? Which thickness would you recommend? Subfloor variance is about 1/2". Thanks!
David
If the peaks and the valleys in your subfloor are a 1/2" in height, then depending on where the tiles interlock, they may not interlock properly. Also, there is potential that if a peak if super sharp, it could puncture the tile if enough pressure is applied. We would recommend if you have major peaks and valleys in your subfloor that you fill in any valleys with a leveling compound. For any peaks, we would suggest grinding or sanding them down.
What is the STC rating for sound transmission of this product? I'm considering using it for a soundproofing element in a wall.

I want to get a floor for my basketball gym. I want to not slip as much as concrete, and I want it to not hurt my knees and shins so much running and jumping on concrete. Is this what I want?
andy swanson
We don't typically recommend our rubber flooring as flooring for a basketball court as the coefficient of friction is really high. This can cause more injuries due to the high level of traction. We do offer a wide range of court floors that are perfect for both indoor and outdoor use that can be paired with a rubber underlay that will help you get all of the things you desire from your new floor. You can find the products on our Court Flooring page and the rubber underlay can be found on the accessories section for the different products.

I need to cover a floor in my house that is set with handmade Saltillo clay tiles. The tiles have a slightly domed surface and wide grout lines that make the surface somewhat irregular. It’s for our home gym, but we won’t have machines or heavy weights. What do you recommend- tiles or rolled flooring? What thickness?

I have recently purchased 2 rubber rolls for my garage floor. Will the Rubber roll stay in place on an epoxy floor without any tape? And if tape is recommended, any brand suggestions on double-sided carpet tape I should look for?
Kelly
Our 8mm Strong Rubber Rolls can be installed over an epoxy floor. When installing over epoxy, the rubber rolls will not typically move. Rubber is very slip-resistant and has a high coefficient of friction, so it is typically pretty difficult to move these rolls. If certain lateral movements do cause movement for some reason, then we would suggest using our Double Sided Carpet Tape. You would just apply this tape under the rolls around the edges and down the seam.
Do you think this can work for a dance floor? (jazz, salsa, ballroom, HipHop, etc.?)
LD Dance Company

We do offer a wide range of dance floors that are great for all types of dance. These floors can be found on our dance flooring page.
