Training Ground Tiles with Nike Grind

Training Ground Tiles with Nike Grind

We are pretty pumped up to introduce a new product that we have been working on for years.  We now carry a product that contains Nike Grind.  What is Nike Grind?  Well basically Nike collects old Nike shoes through their reuse a shoe program and they then grind up the different parts of the shoe and reuse the materials in other products.  So rather than your old shoes ending up in landfills, they end up being recycled.  To date, Nike has recycled over 28 million pair of shoes due to their reuse a shoe program.

The Nike Grind product we now carry is called Training Ground Tile.  This tile is made up of recycled rubber and recycled Nike shoe outsoles (the rubber on the bottom of a shoe) and in total is made of roughly 95% recycled goods.  We strive to offer a lot of “green” flooring  options here at RubberFlooringInc.com but this product might be our “greenest” yet.  To learrn more about Nike’s Reuse-a-ashoe program, please visit here.

If you are interested in ordering our training ground tile or ordering samples of the product, please visit our product page at the following link:

Rubber Flooring

Designer Series Rubber Rolls

Designer Series Rubber Rolls

Rubber flooring is the most common gym flooring solution installed in new commercial gyms today.  The most common form of rubber flooring installed in commercial gyms is rolled recycled rubber flooring.  Recycled rubber floors are often low in cost, extremely durable, easy to clean, and easy to install.  Many times, rolled rubber is even installed by the gym owner or gym staff due to its extremely easy installation process which only requires some double sided carpet tape and a utility knife.  This helps to save the cost of hiring a professional installation team.  One of the most famous gyms in the world, “The Biggest Loser” gym, for example currently uses 8mm thick recycled rolled rubber flooring.  The Biggest Loser staff is extremely demanding of their flooring since weights are often dropped on the product and sleds are often pushed across the surface of the flooring.

The only downside’s to using recycled rubber flooring is that the flooring is very Read more…

Folding Mats – They’re Back!!!

August 2, 2012 Leave a comment

We have finally relaunched our collection of folding mats today.  When we say finally, it is because it felt like forever since we last had some in stock.  The reason for this was that we were on the hunt for a new supplier who could guarantee us a lower price while still maintaining a very high level of quality.  As a company, our goal is to offer the best deals out there for our line of products and with our old supplier, we eventually realized we just were not doing that.  So we went on the hunt and low and behold, 4-5 months later, here we are.  So what are the differences between our old mats and the new ones you may ask?
