Rubber Flooring

Becoming more and more popular, both in homes and in commercial settings, and there is a good reason for it. More people are discovering the unique benefits that rubber flooring offers, and how they are especially valuable in a setting that is prone to spills, heavy usage and wear and tear. A few clear benefits of rubber flooring are:

 

  • Water resistant

  • Excellent slip resistance

  • PVC Free

  • Resistance to heavy impact

  • Sound absorbent

 

 

Rubber flooring is a very versatile floor covering option however; it is often over looked by floor covering professionals. There is a misconception surrounding rubber flooring that it is very expensive and hard to maintain. Although it is not the cheapest option, rubber flooring does provide very good long-term value.

The absence of PVCs provides other advantages as well, including the guarantee that no hydrochloric gas is produced in the event of fire and no corrosive hydrochloric acid results from contact with the water used to extinguish the fire. In addition, no toxic halogenated dioxins and furans are produced. Many of the environmental features that make rubber flooring an attractive choice also contribute to LEED points.

Considering the environmental benefits, along with rubber flooring’s durability, Indoor Air Quality friendliness, and other characteristics, rubber becomes an attractive floor covering solution.

 

Following the manufacturers’ maintenance schedule will alleviate the myth about difficult cleaning. If you want a floor covering option that is unique, rubber flooring is worth a look.

These features have allowed rubber flooring to become an ideal choice for a great many applications.
