Rubber Tiles for your playgroundWhen safety and resiliency are a must, rubber tiles are a superior choice for indoor and outdoor flooring. These customizable tiles come in an incredible range of designs and are perfect for high-traffic areas. Between these tiles protecting children from falls, looking good and making maintenance worry-free, you will wonder why you ever considered another surfacing option.


Rubber tiles are one of the most safe, durable flooring options on the market. Despite its toughness, rubber tiles provide cushioning from falls and prevent fatigue from extended periods of walking or standing. You can even get added cushioning by opting for a cork, fabric or foam backing. Textured tiles are also slip-resistant in wet or dry conditions. As a non-porous material, rubber is impervious to liquids and are surprisingly difficult to damage.

Rubber tiles are:

  • Fade-resistant
  • Water-resistant
  • Burn-resistant
  • Scuff- and scratch-resistant
  • Noise-reducing
  • Easy to replace
  • Long-lasting, with a lifespan of up to twenty years

Low-Maintenance and Eco-Friendly

Your rubber flooring may be the easiest surface you have to take care of. Because it is water-resistant, a simple mop and bucket will take care of most dirt. A mild detergent can be used if needed, and in high-traffic areas, you can use a water-soluble wax solution to add durability and stain-resistance. Be sure to avoid harsh detergents and solvents to keep your tile looking its best.

Installation of rubber tiles is quick and simple, if an individual tile is damaged, it can easily be replaced. Best of all, rubber tiles are eco-friendly. They are made from recycled materials and do not release toxic fumes even when burned. This is an excellent benefit when air quality is a concern and is recommended for areas where pets, children or the elderly will be.

Designs Galore!

There are an incalculable number of color, texture, pattern and finish combinations available with rubber tiles. From stone look-alikes to brilliant neons, there is a tile design to match every need. Textured tiles can be provided for added traction, and most colors can be made with either a glossy or matte finish. Tiles are lending themselves to creative installation. If the pattern can be made with regular tiling, it can also be done with rubber. These designs choices are not limited to commercial applications. In fact, rubber tile is considered a chic choice in contemporary home design.

These are only a few of the myriad places rubber tiles are an excellent choice:

  • Playgrounds and play areas
  • Gyms
  • Garages
  • Common areas
  • Pet parks, doggie daycares and kennels

Rubber flooring is strong, safe and surprisingly versatile. It is an eco-friendly option that will give your space a sleek, contemporary appeal. You will be amazed how fast installation is and how stylish your completed floor looks. For commercial and even residential applications, rubber tile could be the perfect flooring for your space.
