Top Gym Matting Q&A FAQ

How thick should rubber gym flooring be?

The thickness really becomes a concern when using the flooring in areas where barbells will be dropped, such as in Olympic free weight lifting facilities. When working with heavy weights, choose rubber mats that are at least 3/4 inches thick. The thicker the flooring, the more shock absorption and protection it can offer to the subfloor.

How do you cut rubber gym floor?

To make a cut in a thin rubber, use a series of shallow scores until cutting through the material. When working with thick quality rubber, place a 2x4 board underneath the mat. Position the board so that it's lined up with the edge of the cut. As the rubber hangs over the board, it will open up the gap, allowing an easier full cut.
