Foam Tiles For Outdoor Use

Outdoor Foam Playground Padding

2 inch thick Foam Padded outdoor tiles make a great underlayment if you’re considering flooring for a playground environment. It is a large, 4×5 foot pad that is 2 inches thick. Under the synthetic turf, this impact-absorbing padding creates a soft, secure area. Since it is anti-microbial, it lasts for years without deterioration, deformation, mold, or fungus growth. This product is made from cross-linked closed-cell polyethylene foam that is 100 percent recycled, non-contaminated, and post-industrial. When combined with playground turf, it creates a very safe and durable playground that combines quality and value, has a 9 foot fall rating, and is a Next Generation Playground Product.

A 1 inch version of the foam padding for playgrounds is also offered. This underlayment provides a high level of softness to the synthetic playground turf, similar to the 2 inch. This product is approved to a 5-foot fall height rating when used with turf, making it a great choice for areas around playground equipment.
This playground foam pad is incredibly reliable and extremely affordable, costing under $2 per square foot.

Foam Backed Carpet Tiles

Last but not least, the Royal Interlocking Carpet Tile is a top-notch product if you’re looking for carpeted foam tiles. This carpet tile is a popular product for boats, porches, and other applications because it is simple to remove and reinstall, and because of its interlocking design, it can be installed directly over almost any solid surface. They are waterproof and odor-proof, offering anti-fatigue and insulative benefits comparable to those of traditional carpet. These foam-backed carpet tiles can be easily cleaned with a simple vacuum, and should they get wet, they can simply be stood on end to dry since they won’t absorb any water. Aside from the standard black, this product comes in a variety of colors.

Can Carpet Be Covered With Foam Tiles?

For most gym flooring, you need a hard, level, flat subsurface to lay it on. If you try laying rubber or foam over carpeting, it will sink at the seams. This can cause your tiles or rolls to come apart. This is also dangerous because it makes it very easy to twist an ankle.

What Are The Top Outdoor Foam Tiles?

The 3/8 inch thick Life Floor Slate Tile is a good option if you want outdoor foam tiles. This product’s construction uses PE/EVA foam and rubber components to create a floor that is visually appealing, UV stable, slip-resistant, strong, long-lasting, and offered in a variety of colors.
