9. Should I buy commercial gym flooring tiles or mats? 

If you own a distribution center, you should buy both varieties to satisfy the needs of all types of clients.

On the other hand, if you own a commercial gym, things might be different for you. We recommend you buy flooring rolls for large areas of your gym. Meanwhile, the small areas and the edges can be covered using flooring tiles. 

This choice also differs according to the area of the gym. For heavy-weight exercises such as deadlifts and for stressful exercises such as running, use tiles. And for simple walkways, use mats. 

Yanre Fitness offers all types of commercial gym flooring tiles and mats. We assure you that you will find something to fulfill your requirements. 

10. Should I buy water-proof commercial gym flooring tiles?

Yes, we 100% recommend you buy water-proof commercial gym flooring tiles. 

This is because the flooring can be damaged if it absorbs water. Moreover, it can cause infections due to mold. Lastly, water-proof flooring can help in the reduction of the smell caused by sweating. 

11. Does commercial gym flooring tiles installation require professionals?

It depends on the material of gym flooring tiles and your preferences. 

Rubber tiles can be easily installed without much help. While the installation of turf tiles or vinyl tiles requires professionals. Commercial gym flooring tiles always come with a user manual that gives step-by-step instructions about how to install the flooring. 

Moreover, if you have a small space to cover, you can surely do it yourself. However, covering a large space with tiles can be a tiresome job. Therefore, some extra help is always recommended. 

12. Do I need adhesives to install the commercial gym flooring tiles?

Using adhesives is not necessary but highly recommended. 

Commercial gym flooring tiles come with interlocking edges that keep them in place. However, after some usage, they might get disconnected and cause slippage. Therefore, it is recommended to use glue to keep them in place. 

13. Should I use underlay below the commercial gym flooring tiles?

Yes, using underlays below the commercial gym flooring tiles is always beneficial. Following are the few benefits of using them:

  1. Increases shock absorption.
  2. Reduces noise.
  3. Stabilizes floor.
  4. Sub-floor protection.
  5. Increases the life of gym flooring.

Before buying an underlay, make sure that it is compatible with your commercial gym flooring tiles.

14. Do commercial gym flooring tiles help in noise reduction?

This property differs according to the type of commercial gym flooring tiles. 

Rubber tiles are best for noise reduction. If you want to estimate the noise reduction capacity of your flooring, refer to its shock absorption capacity. The higher the shock absorbance, the higher will be its noise reduction capacity. 

Moreover, using an underlay can also help in noise reduction. 

15. Does temperature affect commercial gym flooring tiles?

Yes, the temperature can cause flooring tiles to contract or expand. This phenomenon is usually observed in rubber tiles. 

To avoid this issue, you may leave the tiles unglued for a few days. It will help the tiles in getting adjusted to space. Moreover, removable joints can also be installed that may be removed when expansion occurs. 

16. Should I completely cover the floor with commercial gym flooring tiles?

Yes, we recommend you completely cover the floor with gym tiles. Although it is not necessary, it has multiple benefits. Such as, 

  1. It prevents trainers from tripping over the edges.
  2. It prevents dirt accumulation at the corners. 
  3. It prevents moisture from sweeping below the tiles.

Never use any harsh chemicals as they might damage the quality of tiles. You can find detailed cleaning instructions and suitable chemicals in the user manual. 

21. How long do commercial gym flooring tiles last?

Commercial gym flooring tiles are durable for 8 to 10 years if they are properly maintained. 

This is because commercial gym flooring tiles undergo daily wear and tear. By the time, they get thinner and the friction and shock absorbance is reduced. 

Therefore, we recommend changing the gym flooring after every 8 to 10 years to ensure that your gym looks attractive and offers comfort to its users.
