Rubber Weight Room Flooring: Why we love it (and you should too!)

In every gym there’s that one guy who is constantly straining to lift heavy weights just to drop them from high up, causing thunderous noise every time he does.

And the disturbance these dropped weights cause can be likened to “earthquakes” that ripple through the floor.

With the current trend of CrossFitters and powerlifters still on the rise, so is the popularity of rubber weight room flooring in the fitness industry. Given that it can enhance individual performance as well as absorb high impacts from falling weights, it’s impressive in the eyes of many.

Not only do the thunderous impacts caused by dropped weights disrupt other users; they can also severely damage the gym floor, leaving bumps and scratches and ruining aesthetics.

To prevent this, you need heavy duty gym flooring that doesn’t rip up and leave marks. Rubber gym flooring such as Extreme and Endurance are the optimal floors for weights, offering high resistance to medium-sized weights up to 25kg. So there’s no need to worry about anyone dropping their barbell after deadlifts!

As if they didn’t offer enough advantages, these types of flooring also offer excellent hygiene, ensuring workouts in your gym are never affected by sweat. Both rubber floors are highly impermeable and won’t absorb sweat after a heavy workout, preventing that horrible odour that you get in other gyms!

And because the interlocking tiles are so easy to clean, warped boards become a thing of the past, helping you to keep costs down in the long term; a win-win!


Not only does PAVIGYM rubber weight room flooring offer high-quality resistance and impact absorption, but it also gives your gym flooring the edge in aesthetics too!
