Discovering The Key Elements Of The Perfect Commercial Gym Flooring

Making sure you have the best commercial gym flooring is more important than it might seem at first glance, and there are a range of factors to consider when it comes to which you should choose. To get the best for your gym, read on to find out what you need to consider when choosing your commercial gym flooring.


A gym can be a very busy place and is likely to see a lot of movement and footfall. To withstand this, you need a durable flooring that can withstand all of this traffic.


When you go to the gym, it is common to see free weights dropped on the floor or simply tossed back into their designated area once they are done with. This sort of heavy use can easily cause problems over time for your floor. If it is not shock-absorbent, you may start to see cracks, dents and holes fairly quickly. To avoid this, you need to make sure you choose a floor that is built to last.


Commercial gym flooring is also likely to need to contend with machinery. Traditional gym equipment like treadmills, rowing machines, shoulder presses and cable machines can be extremely heavy and will likely put a lot of strain on the flooring. To ensure that the floor can cope, you need to factor in not only the weight of the equipment but also the additional weight of the people using the area.


Another factor to consider is moisture. It could be spills or sweat as a result of the exercise, or leftover droplets as a result of swimming pools or changing rooms. To ensure safety despite this moisture, you need to ensure that your flooring is both slip resistant and waterproof. This way you can lower the risk of accidents.


Finally, it is worth considering how easy the floor is to clean. In a busy area, it is important to clean regularly. For this reason, making sure the flooring you choose can withstand this regular cleaning regime is key. As well as this, you want your flooring to remain easy to clean over time despite the use of cleaning products.
