Perfect For Garage Or Home Projects
TVS Exibits at Elevate London 2022, UK’s largest fitness, physical activity and sports therapy trade show.
ELEVATE 22, staged in June, provided TVS Group with an opportunity to showcase some of its latest performance surfaces for sports, fitness and physical activities. Held this year at the ExCeL London exhibition centre, the event attracted a wide range of exhibitors and visitors from across the health, fitness and sporting sectors.
Andy Roberts, Sa.es Director of TVS Group says the event was a huge success and a unique opportunity. “Exhibiting at ELEVATE this year was an easy decision for us to make, particularly because this is the first time, in a long time in the UK, that potential buyers, designers and suppliers operating within this sector were able to meet face to face at a trade show of this magnitude.”
What Our Customers Say
Matt Parsons, Norfolk
“It’s perfect for our home gym and probably most gyms. Just the right thickness to give a little bounce underfoot and also at 15mm it was easy to cut with a Stanley blade – the installation was easy”.
Matt Jordan, Southamton
“I purchased your 20mm 1m x1m tiles as flooring for my garage which I turned in to a home gym. I have been delighted with the quality of the tiles. They are a really robust gym flooring solution yet were very easy to install. I was really impressed with the speed of dispatch of the tiles and the overall service that I received.”
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.
