What Is The Difference Between Home & Commercial Gym Flooring?
The biggest difference between home gym flooring and commercial gym flooring is that while home gyms typically use tiles that are 15mm to 20mm thick, commercial gyms use rubber flooring that is 30mm to 40mm thick.
It is normal for commercial gym floor tiles to be double the thickness of home gym floor tiles. That’s not to say you couldn’t use thicker rubber tiles in a home gym, but unless you’re powerlifting or lifting very heavy, 30mm to 40mm is overkill.
In terms of material used, a lot of home gyms utilise high-density foam floor tiles over concrete or carpet. Foam is adequate for a home gym but not suitable for a commercial gym because it is not durable enough to cope with heavy-duty wear.
Commercial gyms always use rubber flooring in free weight zones, or a hard rubber floor finished with a polyurethane top layer in functional fitness zones.
