Rubber flooring offers quietness, resilience, and comfort. It’s ideal for healthcare, hospitality, heavy commercial and sports environments.
With an extensive choice of colours, textures and patterns, rubber flooring is the earliest used resilient flooring (1880). During the 1960’s, however, rubber was displaced by PVC in the 60’s with it’s more modern looks, weld ability, and lower price.
However, now 40 years on, disposal of plastic is proving a problem. The environmental impact of PVC is making rubber now the natural choice for environmental and forward-thinking designers and facility owners. The use of rubber in commercial areas has extensively increased.
WHY RUBBER OVER OTHER RESILIENT FINISHES?
Rubber has excellent sound absorption properties. The sound insulation of 2mm rubber is 2.5 times that of 2mm homogenous vinyl.
ANTI BACTERIAL AND HYGIENIC
Rubber is impermeable, and because of the sulphur in the vulcanizing process and zinc, prohibits bacterial growth. (Sulphur and zinc, both known as antibacterial for 2000 years)
Rubber is considered naturally anti-static unlike plastic.
Rubber flooring is resistant to all substances commonly handled using rubber gloves, even iodine stains can be removed from the floor.
Rubber flooring, like vinyl, is available in rolls, fully weldable (but not generally required), thick and superior value, requiring no coating, sealing or other expensive maintenance.
