Rubber flooring

Hey guys, I am trying to kit out my own box and was wondering if anyone had any experience with Rouges (Regupol Aktiv Flooring) I just have a concrete slab at the moment is it sufficient just to put this rubber flooring over the top? Not sure weather the concrete would break up with repeated impact?

Steve

Re: Rubber flooring

You won't break up the concrete if it's your typical slab base unless you are throwing metal plates down on it, or kettlebells. And I'm actually willing to bet the plates would break before the concrete does.

And odds are the Rogue flooring is probably really expensive, I see you have to get a quote for it. It's probably good quality stuff, but if you want to save some money just go with horse stall mats or something of the like. If you ask me, I'd rather use money on good equipment than on flooring.

Re: Rubber flooring

I have to second that response. Rogue equipment is worth it's weight in gold but rubber flooring is not something you should need to do through them. 3/4" stall mats for a local feed store should do more than fine and will be half the cost. Think of it as a chance to build community by helping a local business. Just did it myself and gained three members. They seem to know their way around a tractor tire already.
