Rubber Tile Use Is On The Rise- Here’s Why!

Rubber Tile Use Is On The Rise- Here’s Why!

This just in: rubber tiles are the next best thing! Flooring options have certainly expanded in recent years, and now with a variety of rubber tiles to choose from, the choices can only get better from here! Follow along as we reveal the positives of rubber flooring and take a look at where it’s best used! 

Pros Of Using Rubber Tiling

  • Strong and durable: These tiles can withstand anything from foot traffic to equipment and vehicles, meaning they are long-lasting and ideal for use within busy areas. 
  • Easy to install: Installation is made an absolute dream thanks to no adhesives being used during the process. Tiles fit seamlessly together and can be customised to suit the space they are intended to be used. 
  • Cost-effective: Rubber tiles are certainly an affordable flooring choice. Price is determined by the thickness of the chosen tile and the area of space needing to be covered.
  • Easy upkeep: Who doesn’t love something easy to maintain? Rubber tiles have antimicrobial properties and can be cleaned quickly and effectively by simply using warm soapy water.
  • Sound absorbent: Rubber absorbs sound quickly and helps to muffle it upon impact. Due to its sound-absorbent properties, this is an ideal flooring choice for upstairs living areas. 

Where To Use Rubber Tiles 

  • Heavy Foot Traffic Areas

  • Rubber tiles come with many options to choose from. They are no longer just the tiles seen frequently in gyms and other fitness centres. Rubber tiles are perfect for offices, industrial kitchens and schools due to the material being able to withstand heavy foot traffic.

  • The Bathroom

  • Using anti-slip waterproof rubber tiles in the bathroom can help prevent you from slipping when it gets steamy after a shower or bath. Furthermore, they’re ideal for use within a bathroom because of their anti-fungal and easy-to-clean properties. In a bedroom or living room, they’re the perfect flooring choice if you’re looking to keep the cold from seeping through underfoot whilst still enjoying comfortable footing. 

  • The Basement

  • Keep the cool within your basement away when opting for rubber flooring to help insulate the space. Consider rubber tiling an option if you’re looking to maintain a hygienic animal care facility or even a child’s playground space. Finally, we’d recommend these tiles for use within a garage if you intend to use the area as a workspace and you want to enjoy comfortable footing.

    4 Things To Consider In Waterproofing Products

    There are many contractors who are opting for spray-applied waterproofing from a reliable supplier in Sydney. While that is one option, newer waterproofing solution spray-ons can be applied in one coat with no reinforcements required. This works because waterproofing installers spray the waterproofing solution in a prepared and primed substrate instead of traditionally cutting and placing sheet membranes or embedding reinforced fleeces in the liquid waterproofing membrane system. What's great about different waterproofing supplies and the range provided by waterproofing suppliers in Sydney is that their products can save you time and a range of other benefits.
