Surface Preparation.

Gym Rubber is easily laid over a variety of subfloor with very little preparation. The Nature of the desired activity on the floor, after completion, will dictate the strength of the subfloor requirements.

Levelled, conceret floors are always the preferred subfloor. It is essential to have a relatively flat and damage free subfloor without holes.

Normal expansion joints, concrete seams, or board joints will be no problem for the Gym Rubber tiles.

However, If there are significant imperfections in the subfloor we recommend filling them and levelling them with a levelling compound.

Whatever the surface you are laying on, all traces of old carpet, carpet gripping, nails or screws, old glue, dirt and grime must be removed completely The floor surface should then be swept, mopped then vacuumed.

Just like painting, time spent on initially preparing the surface that will be under your Gym Rubber tiles will ensure your end result. Take the extra time at this stage to ensure that your installation comes up to the best possible

Fill any holes and nail in protruding nails in your floor. This should be completed at this stage so you end up with the optimal fresh clean flat surface to begin your job.
