Why Choose Rubber Flooring?

A very popular alternative for flooring in commercial settings is rubber floors, but many might not know the benefits in installing this type of flooring. When people think of rubber, it might not be the first thing you think of when you consider installing new floors in your commercial space. However, Ozburn-Hessey uses rubber flooring in medical and educational buildings all over Nashville, most recently in the St. Thomas Midtown Hospital and in Middle Tennessee State University’s (MTSU) College of Education and Behavioral Science.

So why choose rubber floors anyway? Here are some things to consider for your floor installation:

  1. Easy maintenance -- This type of flooring is quick to clean and is long-lasting, making it great for hospitals and school buildings.

  2. Ergonomic for walking -- Built for comfort, rubber floors are much more comfortable to walk and to stand on, making for much more productive and healthy staff and/or students.

  3. Slip and stain resistance -- These floors are built for safety and to withstand heavy traffic, which makes it great for slips and stains.

  4. Sound absorbent -- Rubber flooring, such as the popular brand Nora, is impact resistant, which absorbs the noise of carts, patient beds, traffic and other noises that might come along, enhancing a positive work environment.
