Having recently installed sports flooring in the University of Phoenix (Arizona Cardinals) stadium, I thought it would be appropriate to explain some of the various options for your rubber commercial flooring.
First is the standard sports floor. They are 80%black with 20% color flecks and are made from 65% to 80% recycled rubber. These are the least expensive and softest of rubber floors. Great for exercise rooms or as we have done at the stadium, a non-slip soft walkway from the field to the locker rooms.
They come in various thicknesses and are LEED certified. Here is a link with shapes, sizes and available colors.
Next are solid rubber floors as you see on stairways and landings. Denser, they are for extremely high traffic areas and are resistant to most chemicals. Used primarily in areas that require either high traffic or people standing they come in a variety of colors and textures.
There are many manufacturers for limitless colors and purposes. Here are links to the Johnsonite line. They include rolled flooring and 12 inch squares.
As you can see they come in beautiful colors and textures including flowers! How can you resist?
Rubber flooring is the ultimate in recycling. It is functional, attractive and resists wear. They are low static and chemically resistant. Did I mention flowers? Here are some specialty links for more rubber floors.
Circulinity can be used for patterns for that less commercial look –http://www.johnsonite.com/FlooringProducts/RubberFlooring/CirculinityComponentRubberTile/tabid/758/Default.aspx
Building a sports arena or chapel? Maybe your school needs a new cafeteria floor? Wreck room for the kids? ( I know it’s supposed to be rec, but you haven’t seen my grandkids).
