  4. 18 oz. Vinyl Gym Floor Cover

Gym Floor Covering Carpet Tile offers a durable and attractive temporary flooring protection option. Add comfort and style to any gym, hardwood floor, or other area for a special event. These carpet tiles are fast and easy to install without adhesive. They feature a non-slip backing and lay flat over a subfloor without unattractive wrinkles or ripples.






Vinyl Runner Gym Floor Cover is a waterproof, rot and mildew resistant product that has antifungal and anti-bacterial features. With ultra-durable, 3-ply fabrics and PVC coating with polyester mesh, this product exceeds ADA and OSHA requirements for slip-resistant surfaces. This 50-foot roll is available in 4 feet and 5 feet widths, and it is easy to handle with strong seams. The runners lay smooth and flat, and they are available in a wide variety of colors.





Woven Poly Gym Floor Cover is another temporary flooring protection product that is waterproof, rot and mildew resistant, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. Available in 5 different weights and custom cut for your facility, this product is fire retardant to all standard fire codes. It exceeds ADA and OSHA requirements for slip-resistant surfaces, and it features 3-ply fabrics with PVC coating and polyester mesh. This ultra-durable product is heavy-duty and versatile and anything but a flimsy film floor cover.




The 18 oz. Vinyl Gym Floor Cover and vinyl sheets shield your flooring surface from damage caused by dances, registrations, banquets, plays, and commencements. These are products that are easy to handle with strong seams that lay smooth and flat. They’re waterproof, rot and mildew resistant, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. The floor covers exceed ADA and OSHA requirements for slip resistant surfaces.





AlturnaMats Ground Protection Mats are known as the original temporary roadway mat, but they can also be used to protect concrete floors if you put the smooth side down. These mats have a diamond plate tread design for great traction, but they will leave subsurfaces smooth and undamaged, even in soft conditions. The mats are ideal for applications over concrete, and can replace a large board or slabs of wood that would perhaps otherwise be used for flooring protection.
