Interlocking rubber floor tiles add instant cushioning to hard surface floors. Transforming floors into comfortable, shock-absorbent surfaces provides comfortable floor space in physically active environments, such as gyms, playrooms,day care centres and in commercial professions that demand long work hours on your feet. Several options for interlocking rubber floor tiles exist on the market.

Eco-Friendly Floor Tiles

Eco-friendly floor tiles are constructed of recycled materials, such as plastic bottles and rubber, lessening the demand for raw materials from the natural environment. The manufacture of these eco-friendly floor tiles is performed with minimal material waste and they are produced in varying thicknesses and durability. Use eco-friendly floor tiles in exercise rooms, work spaces and play areas.

Comfort Floor Tiles

Interlocking floor tiles with extra soft cushioning provide comfortable floor tile solutions for the shoeless play areas of small children. These tiles are constructed of foam, which is softer than rubber, and come in varying thicknesses. Children can play, crawl, lie down and tumble on these mats without the worry of bumps and bruises.

Playground Tiles

Safe-Play Tiles produced by Rubber Flooring Inc. are made of recycled crumb rubber materials that are constructed into tiles and painted with brilliant colours that children enjoy. The tiles are interlocked to seamlessly cover the outdoor play surfaces of playgrounds, play areas, walking paths and roller-skating parks.

Tough Rubber Tiles

Skid-resistant and shock-absorbent, these interlocking tiles are designed to cover the floors of gym spaces that house heavy exercise equipment. Also known as athletic rubber flooring, they are durable for exterior use on hard surfaces and can be used in play areas.

Drainage Floor Tiles

One of the disadvantages of using rubber floor tiles in a workspace prone to a wet or messy floor is that they lose their nonskid quality once they become wet. The honeycombed design of Rubber-Cal's Dura-Chef interlocking drainage rubber floor tiles channels away liquids from the surface, acts as a shock-absorbent surface that prevents breakage and cushions workers during long hours on their feet.

Foot-Support Tiles

While standard rubber floor tiles absorb shock and provide a comfortable surface to work on, foot-support tiles have pebble and bubble surfaces that enhance the cushioning comfort underfoot and provide a slip-resistant surface under wet conditions. Assemble these mats in high-volume and high-traffic commercial work areas to reduce workplace hazards and increase productivity.
