Rubber Matting for Floors - Soft, Comfortable, and Safe
Updated: Santa Ana, Calif., July 9, 2013
Rubber matting for floors in your home creates a softer, more comfortable surface wherever employed. Rubber matting for floors in residential applications is a great choice for families with young children, since it is commonplace for kids to be running about and often falling. A residential rubber floor offers much better protection from injury than other common household flooring options such as hardwood or tile. Rubber safety tiles, such as the Terra-Flex seen in the accompanying video, function well in multiple settings and are available in a number of earth tones to add some style to any room. Terra-Flex tiles are tough, durable tiles that will last for years to come, which makes it no surprise that ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” chose these tiles for the flooring of the Lutz’ new home.
ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” is a reality television program in which one lucky family in need of a home transformation is granted a top to bottom renovation. For this particular episode, the family chosen is the Lutz family. The current living conditions for the Lutz family are tough as they have eight people crammed into a house made for about four people. The house is in dire need of a renovation as the roofs and walls are literally tearing at the seams. For this particular makeover, as evidenced by the video, a simple remodeling will not suffice as there is not much too work with in the current home. So as is sometimes the case, host Ty Pennington and his crew of building experts completely tear down the existing structure and start from scratch.
The Lutz family is a unique situation in that there are eight people living in one house, with six of them having down syndrome. Keeping this is mind, home makeover wanted to make the house a fun and as safe as possible environment for the family. So, when it came time to chose the flooring option for the Lutz’ house, the crew made the perfect choice and installed a Terra-Flex rubber safety floor. Installing light tan rubber matting for floors throughout the entire house gave the house a fun feel while also providing protection for potential falls.
A residential rubber floor is extremely easy to install, and the Terra-Flex tiles are simply put together like the pieces of a puzzle. Made from synthetic and natural rubber, this rubber matting is tough and durable enough to last for a long time, and in the rare case a tile becomes damaged or worn, simply replacing that one tile is all that is necessary. The Terra-Flex is also infused with a vanilla scent to mask the common smell of rubber that may not be wanted for a residential floor, making these tiles the premium choice for homeowners. A Terra-Flex residential rubber floor can be selected in the pantone colors of Blue, Caramel, Light Tan, Green, or Gray to give your rubber matting unique character. Installing these rubber safety interlocking tiles and transforming your flooring is an easy cost-effective project, if safety is a concern for your family, considering rubber matting for floors is a must.
