UK: Rubber Flooring: Manufacturers & Suppliers
ABOUT RUBBER FLOORING
Rubber flooring provides an easily cleaned and hygienic surface which is
comfortable to the foot. Rubber flooring is used in institutions and also in
contemporary interiors. Most rubber flooring is made from synthetic SBR, known
as 'industrial rubber'. This is a synthetic
product made from petrochemicals. Some firms do supply natural rubber flooring;
this is more environmentally friendly than synthetic rubber, because the rubber
trees extract CO2 from the atmosphere. Natural rubber flooring is usually
reinforced with carbon and treated with antioxidants to give longer life.

Dalsouple rubber is free from PVC, cfcs, asbestos, halogens, formaldehyde and plasticisers. Dalsouple's DalNatural range is made from natural rubber, and is 90% natural in its materials. It provides the same quality and performance as synthetic rubber, but with substantial environmental advantages.

The first three of these are available in twenty colours, including Charcoal, Dark Grey, Sage, Navy, Teal, Rope, and Khaki. Three thicknesses are available: 2mm, 3mm, 4mm and 6mm. Rubber flooring is exceptionally durable, with exceptional wear resistance, resistance to cigarette burns, and resistance to dents from impacts. The natural elasticity of rubber means that most scratches and abrasions are self-healing. The rubber flooring will not crack on bending, and can be applied on curved and angled surfaces. VIP-Polymers argues that other benefits of rubber flooring include anti-slip, fire safety, sound proofing, and ease of installation and maintenance.
