High-intensity, heavy lifting exercises lead to weights being constantly dropped onto the floor. Not only will these impacts deteriorate the training equipment, but they will also potentially damage the original flooring and structure of the building. Also, serious problems may arise with neighbours due to noise transfer and vibrations.
Rubber Alpha Tiles, have a high level of acoustic insulation and absorption of impacts and vibrations. They provide added protection for the venue and will increase the durability of the facility and the equipment.
During sports practice, the risk of injury is something we should always be aware of. Injuries can occur suddenly, simply by slipping, or over the long term through constant impacts that gradually affect the most sensitive zones of our body, such as the knees or ankles. In order to minimise this risk, it is essential to guarantee the sport’s person’s physical integrity.
The rubber tiles are compact and have a non-slip surface and as such provide the necessary stability for safe and high-level performance. With excellent shock absorption, this flooring offers greater comfort to sport’s people from the constant impact that the body and joints are subjected to.
The floor surface should cater for the needs of both the venue and the activities performed. If for example, through intensive use, the floor does not have the appropriate density and thickness, it will quickly show signs of wear and tear. This will require you to replace the flooring quickly and consequently you will have to make a greater investment.
The higher density of the rubber Alpha Tiles ensure more resistance to wear and tear and consequently greater durability. In addition, the various thicknesses available ensure that the option you choose can be adapted to the protection needs required by the sport and its environment.

Gluing is recommended only if installed outdoors. The thinner the tiles, the greater the need to be stuck down with bicomponent glue.
If necessary, elastic adhesive should be applied, such as bicomponent polyurethane glue.
The cuts should be carried out using a X-Acto knife or a jigsaw. Make sure you measure the cutting area well before proceeding. The material takes approximately 24 hours to reach room temperature. Therefore, leave the material to rest during this time, and only then measure and cut it.
Alpha Tiles can be installed on any type of base, as long as it is sturdy, level, clean and dry.
Use a vacuum cleaner to start cleaning the entire surface to remove any dust. Next, clean it with a mop or scrubber with soft brushes, using a PH neutral detergent, so as not to damage the structure of the flooring.
For outdoor application, a suitable drainage system for rainwater should be in place.
You should also take into account that the temperature will fluctuate more, which will cause the tiles to contract and expand more. To minimise this effect, we recommend gluing the entire surface.
In relation to cleaning in general, if possible, wash the tiles outdoors using lots of water to remove all the dirt, and then disinfect the flooring with a PH neutral detergent.
