Our gym tiles have been tested against;
- SGS fire rate certificate: ISO 9239.1: 2010 Reaction to fire tests for flooring determining the burning behaviors using a radiant heat source. This is a safety test to evaluate the combustion and smoke emissions when the tile is exposed to a radiant heat source.
** It is a very important safety feature and also a safety requirement from some councils and land lords if leasing a building.
- SGS VOC test: Volatile organic compounds (VOC) testing services from SGS can help you ensure that our rubber mats comply with international VOC requirements that safeguard the environment and human health.
- TUV Rheinland Product and environmental analyses test.
Rubber Gym Flooring Mats:
The best way to lay the mats is in a stretcher bond (brick pattern).
Lay the first row of mats against the longest straight wall compressing each new mat into the previous mat. When you start the 2nd row start with ½ width mat and compress all the mats towards the corner as you go. This will create a pattern the same as a typical brick wall appears. Continue to compress all mats towards the corner you started from during the entire laying process.
This laying method will remove any minor size tolerances and gaps between each mat and they will all lock together much better than if you were to use a stack bond pattern where all 4 corners of the mats meet at one point.
The best way to cut the mats is with a sharp Stanley knife and a flat straight edge. You will have to make a few passes with the knife to cut through the 15mm depth of the mat. You can also cut shapes by making several passes with the cut and always take extra care by cutting away from yourself and not towards yourself in case the knife slips.
As these mats are a natural rubber product they will slightly expand in the hot summer and contract in cold winter. So it is important to compress the mats tightly together during the initial installation to prevent any small gaps opening up later especially if laying in the warmer months.
If you have mats ending which are not enclosed by walls or physical objects you can either glue the last row of mats down or use a fixed down finishing strip like those used for carpet or floating timber flooring to restrict the mats from moving.
How to clean Recycled Rubber Flooring
On occasion fine dust or dirt may become embedded in the tiles making them more difficult to clean. When that occurs vacuum the tiles thoroughly with a heavy duty vacuum preferably with a beater brush to remove as much dirt as possible to clean the mats.
A mild solution of dishwashing liquid or similar detergent and water work well to clean recycled rubber. Be certain that you do not use too strong a solution as you do not want it to be sudsy or leave any residue when it dries. Whatever cleaner is used we recommend a Nylon mop not a cotton mop as cotton will leave particles behind. Do not use petroleum based cleaners as these can cause deterioration of the tiles. Do not use cleaners containing a wax agent as the wax can cause a build-up on the tiles.
