Having a carpet is a lot like being in a relationship. It’s positively swoon-worthy when it’s nice and new, but if you don’t give it a lot of serious TLC, things can quickly go awry.
Luckily, there’s a way to beautify your floors without all the hassles: rubber flooring! The past few years have introduced rubber flooring as an alternative flooring for businesses and offices all over the world, especially in Europe. Find out why they have ditched carpets in favor of this flooring solution.
Rubber flooring retains its resiliency and durability for years. This means that a rubber floor preserves its original shape and appearance even under heavy weight and foot traffic, making it ideal for businesses like car dealerships.
Rubber floors are easier to clean and maintain because, unlike carpets, they don’t have fibers that trap dirt, dust and stains. They also have a longer lifespan, so you don’t have to change them as often.
Given their durability and lower maintenance requirements, a rubber floor is a more cost-efficient option than traditional carpeting. Over the course of its lifetime, it will more than pay for itself in savings.
Non-Slip Features for Better Movement
Rubber flooring offers excellent slip resistance, making high-foot-traffic areas such as playgrounds or gyms safer, and allowing for greater freedom of movement. Rephouse’s Neoflex™ rubber flooring, for instance, complies with international anti-slip standards, giving facility owners more peace of mind.
Rubber floors naturally absorb footfall and other sounds, making them ideal for facilities that require a quiet environment, such as libraries and hospitals.
Some rubber floors are made from environment-friendly materials. Rephouse’s Neoflex™, for one, is made from a high percentage of recycled rubber, and can even be re-recycled for greater sustainability.
Variety of Colors and Styles
Rubber flooring can also be customized to suit specific design needs. For the Manansala Gym in Rockwell Club, E-Sports installed a tailor-made Neoflex™ floor that matched the facility’s original carpet design.
