The roll product is ideal for areas that need to cover large areas, such as gyms, commercial premises or other large training areas. It enables easy installation and adaptation to different room sizes and requirements.

What material are fitness floor protection mats made of?

The material composition of floor protection mats for fitness surfaces plays a decisive role in terms of their durability, impact resistance and functionality. Choosing the right materials has a significant impact on the performance of the flooring in different training environments. We will now take a closer look at the SBR and EPDM materials used to make floor protection mats for fitness surfaces.

SBR rubber granules (EFL-S1 - normally flammable)

SBR (styrene butadiene rubber) rubber granules are a frequently used material for floor protection mats in fitness areas. It is made from recycled rubber and is characterized by its durability, impact resistance and elasticity. The EFL-S1 classification means that it is a normally flammable floor covering that fulfills a certain fire protection class.

This type of rubber granulate provides excellent shock absorption, protects the floor from damage caused by weights or fitness equipment and reduces the noise level in the training area. It is resistant to abrasion while providing a non-slip surface, making it ideal for fitness rooms. The use of recycled rubber as a material also makes it an environmentally friendly choice for floor protection mats.

SBR rubber granules with EPDM top layer (CFL-S1 flame retardant)

SBR rubber granules with an EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) top layer is an advanced variant of floor protection mats for fitness areas. This combination unites the properties of SBR and EPDM, with the EPDM layer forming an additional protective layer.

The EPDM top layer gives the floor protection mats additional benefits such as improved resistance to UV rays, better color stability and increased tear resistance compared to pure SBR rubber granules. The CFL-S1 classification means that it is a flame-retardant material that meets higher fire safety standards.

The combination of SBR and EPDM ensures optimum shock absorption, protects the floor from damage and at the same time provides a durable and color-stable surface. This type of floor protection mat is ideal for fitness rooms where a higher level of fire protection and improved color stability is required. CFL-S1 flame-retardant floor protection mats are mainly used in fitness rooms in public institutions and authorities such as police stations, fire stations, schools and universities.

Important note: Not every floor protection mat with an EPDM top layer is also flame-retardant. Flame retardancy is determined in a complex test procedure.

A flame-retardant floor protection mat with CFL-S1 certification is the X2.CRF-Q1/CFL floor protection mat in our online store.

What are the best floor protection mats for sports and fitness areas?

The best floor protection mats as sports surfaces depend heavily on individual requirements and the context of use. However, there are some key factors that determine quality and performance

  • Shock and impact absorption criterion
    Effective floor protection mats must provide excellent shock absorption to protect the floor and the exerciser from injury. They should absorb energy while providing a stable base.
  • Criterion Robust and durable (abrasion-resistant)
    High-quality floor protection mats are durable and resistant to intensive use, wear and tear and the weight of fitness equipment. They should also be resistant to tears, abrasion and pressure loads.
  • Material criterion (REACH certification)
    The best floor protection mats are made from high-quality, environmentally friendly materials. Certifications such as REACH confirm that no harmful chemicals have been used and that strict environmental standards are adhered to.
  • Non-slip criterion
    A non-slip surface is crucial to prevent accidents. The mats should also provide good traction during strenuous exercises.
  • Density criterion
    An appropriate density ensures the right balance between shock absorption and stability. Mats that are too dense may offer too little cushioning, while mats that are too loose may lose stability.

Floor protection mat test - How can you test floor protection mats?

The quality of floor protection mats plays a crucial role in the safety, durability and functionality of fitness and training environments. To ensure that the chosen floor protection mats meet the requirements, it is important to test them thoroughly.

This guide focuses on how we effectively test our floor protection mats to ensure they meet shock absorption, slip resistance and durability standards.

Dive in to find out which tests and criteria are crucial for assessing the quality and reliability of floor protection mats.

Test: Bounce effect (barbell with weight)

The bounce effect test is an important test to evaluate the shock absorption capabilities of floor protection mats, especially in areas where weights or heavy fitness equipment are used. To perform this rubber mat test, a barbell with weights is placed on the floor protection mat and dropped from a certain height.

The purpose of this test is to assess how well the mat absorbs impact energy and reduces the bounce effect.

A high-quality floor protection mat should be able to absorb the kinetic energy generated by the impact to protect the floor underneath while minimizing vibrations to prevent injury and damage.

The fitness floor should have an adequate bounce effect that supports shock absorption but does not allow excessive bounce or uncontrolled movement of the weights. Too much bounce could indicate that the fitness mat is not absorbing enough shock, while too little could indicate that it is too rigid and not absorbing enough energy.

This test provides information on how effectively the floor covering distributes the impact energy and thus contributes to the safety and durability of the floor.

Test: Abrasion test - surface resistance

The abrasion test is an essential floor protection mat test to evaluate the resistance of the surface to abrasion and wear. This test simulates the wear and tear that can result from frequent use, movement of sports equipment and other strenuous activities.

For this test, special equipment is used that generates a standardized friction to rub the surface of the floor protection mats. The number of friction cycles required is measured until the first signs of material abrasion or wear become visible.

High-quality floor protection mats, especially those with a hard-wearing top layer and high density, should withstand an abrasion test and show minimal signs of wear. Resistance to abrasion is crucial to the lifespan of the mats and their ability to maintain their functionality and protective effect even with intensive use.

This test provides information on how resistant the surface of the floor protection mats is and how well they can withstand daily wear and tear. Manufacturers of inexpensive floor protection mats save on materials, not only on the granules, but also on the PU binder content. Only a strong, high-quality adhesive can give the granules a durable shape.

Test: UV resistance

The UV resistance test of floor protection mats is important to evaluate the reaction of the material to UV radiation. This floor protection mat test simulates the exposure of the mats to sunlight and evaluates how well the material withstands this exposure.

In this test, the material of the floor protection mats is exposed to a controlled amount of UV radiation that is similar to natural sunlight. This makes it possible to evaluate the reaction of the material to long-term exposure to sunlight. The aim is to determine whether the material fades, changes or loses structure and durability when exposed to UV radiation.

High-quality floor protection mats should have good UV resistance and retain their color, structure and durability even after prolonged exposure to sunlight.

This test is important to ensure that the floor protection mats can maintain their quality and functionality even when used outdoors or in rooms with strong sunlight.

Test: Sound and impact reduction

Sound and impact reduction tests evaluate the ability of floor protection mats to reduce sound and vibration caused by activities in the gym, such as dropping weights or exercising with fitness equipment.

For the sound test, sound and pressure measurements are typically carried out to determine how well the floor protection mats absorb sound and reduce sound transmission to the floor below. This involves measuring how much sound is absorbed by the mat and how much is reflected.

The impact reduction test assesses the ability of the mats to absorb the energy generated by impact or vibration. Special measurements are carried out to determine how well the mats absorb shocks and minimize the transfer of energy to the ground.

High-quality floor protection mats are able to effectively reduce both sound and impact. They help to reduce noise pollution in fitness rooms and protect the subfloor from damage caused by repeated impacts or vibrations.

These tests are crucial to ensure that the floor protection mats improve user safety and at the same time make the room acoustically more pleasant.

Test: Slip resistance

The slip resistance test is crucial to evaluate the safety of floor protection mats, especially in environments where there is a risk of slipping, such as fitness rooms where sweat or moisture may occur.

There are various methods of testing slip resistance, including the use of special testing equipment that measures the coefficient of friction between the surface of the mat and a standardized material. These tests simulate typical conditions under which slip accidents could occur, such as sweat or moisture on the surface.

A high-quality floor protection mat should have a high slip resistance (guideline value: dry condition ≤105 PTV (PN-EN 13036-4:2004) to minimize the risk of falls or injuries. The floor protection mat should also provide good traction in damp or sweaty conditions. Slip resistance tests help to ensure that the mats meet safety standards and provide users with a safe training environment.

Test: Tolerances (dimensional and thermal tolerance)

Tolerance tests on floor protection mats evaluate the accuracy of the dimensions and their response to temperature changes to ensure that the mats remain stable and do not exhibit undesirable deformations.

Dimensional tolerance test
The actual dimensions of the floor protection mats are compared with the specified or expected dimensions. This test ensures that the mats are the correct size and shape and meet the stated specifications.

Heat tolerance test
This test evaluates how floor protection mats react to temperature fluctuations. This is important to ensure that the floor coverings retain their structure and properties at different temperatures without deforming or warping.

High-quality floor protection mats show minimal dimensional deviations and are tolerant of temperature fluctuations. They remain stable and retain their shape under different environmental conditions.

Tolerance tests ensure that the mats are reliable and consistent in terms of their dimensions and resistance to temperature changes.

Test: Price/performance ratio

The price-performance ratio for floor protection mats refers to the appropriate balance between the benefits or quality of the mats and the price at which they are offered.

The test for evaluating the price-performance ratio takes various criteria into account:

Quality and durability:
It is examined whether the floor protection mats are of high quality and fulfill their functions (shock absorption, slip resistance, durability, etc.) to ensure adequate durability and effectiveness.

Comparison with similar products:
Value for money is assessed in comparison to similar products on the market. This includes a comparison of features, materials and costs to see if the features offered justify the price.

Customer ratings and experience as a test factor

We constantly incorporate customer experiences and evaluations into our test matrix. This test factor helps us to get a balanced understanding of whether the floor protection mats can withstand the constantly changing training situations.
