Typically tiles function to increase the visual appearance of a room or space. While not as visually appealing as other types of tiles, rubber tiles can do things no other tiles can. Read on and you’ll find the top three reasons why they are amazing!
1) They can make a great sound barrier. Not something that usually comes to mind when thinking about tiles. Yet, rubber tiles are actually very efficient sound barriers. The reason for this is twofold. First of all, they block sounds from coming in. That means less distraction for you when used in a home office, workroom, or gym. And second of all, they are great at absorbing sounds. That means less distraction and noise for everyone else in the house whether you’re dropping your barbells or tuning your engine. They are used by parents all over the world, not only to give their children a soft surface to play on, but to give them some peace and quiet while the kids are playing. These tiles also work especially well when used to block sound in condos, and apartments where there is noise coming from a lower floor. Let’s put it this way, you won’t lose any sleep over your decision to put down rubber tiles.
2) Rubber tiles are also burn and fire resistant. Unlike wood flooring, they will actually protect your home in the event of a fire. Having a layer of fire resistant rubber can stop a fire from spreading, or more importantly prevent it from starting in the first place. A further plus is that unlike other materials, if they were to burn, they would not release any toxic or noxious fumes. Not only are they fire resistant, but burn resistant as well, so not only will a dropped cigarette not start a fire but there shouldn’t be any cosmetic damage to the tile either!
3) They can actually make you more productive, feel great, and be less fatigued. Working and standing on a hard surface all day is known to contribute to foot, leg, knee, and back pain. As anyone who already has a problem or pre-existing condition knows, a hard surfaced floor can actually aggravate it or make it worse. Rubber tiles are actually often advertised as “anti-fatigue tiles”. With their soft texture and elasticity, rubber tiles will keep help keep the stress and fatigue at bay giving you more energy to finish your work. Therefore helping you to be more productive, less fatigued and feeling great at the same time.
There you have it, the top three reasons why rubber tiles are amazing. There just aren’t any other tiles which can block sound, help prevent fires, and prevent fatigue. All of these combined with their low cost and extremely high durability make rubber tiles a truly amazing product!
