I have been doing some home renovations today, and I often thought about how I would have LOVED to have a kneeling pad to preserve my knees! I’ve been kneeling on hard, half-inch thick, cement board used as underlayment beneath ceramic tiles, and my knees are rather sore now. I also think just one of these mini jumbo, EVA foam floor tiles would work well as a kneeling pad, as they are 2’ x 2’ square; the jumbo, 4’ x 4’, interlocking gym flooring tiles would be much too large for just kneeling on.
I know…these foam flooring tiles are not really intended to be used as kneeling pads, and are classified as exercise flooring, but let me tell you, when you’ve been on your hands and knees, on concrete sub-flooring [tile backer], for several hours, you begin dreaming about something—ANYTHING—softer to kneel, sit, crouch, and maybe even take a nap on!

I’ve been considering all the many uses for traditional, trade show flooring, and other durable, rubber flooring, and the other day, while writing about sports logo rugs and how good looking those professional logo rugs are for NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, and other such sports logo rugs would look in a home or sports bar, and I thought, “Why not install a highly durable gym flooring in a sports bar, for effect, even if not just in front of the serving or bar area, to keep that “gym feel” beneath the feet of patrons?”
Am I crazy for such an idea? I don’t think so. Interlocking gym flooring tiles are extremely durable, easy on the feet, legs, back and joints, provide anti-fatigue qualities, help prevent slippage, and are impervious to liquids; especially the corrosive qualities sweat can have over a period of time. I think it’s a pretty cool idea. If you own your own sports bar, what do you think of the idea?

Do you have an NHL fanatic in your family? NHL logo rugs always make great gifts for birthdays, holidays, or even when a favorite team wins big. These authentic looking logo sports rugs aren’t like your ordinary children’s play mats, in that the depth of quality is much more professional, with the colors running through the depth of the fabric, not just on the top of it!
They’re 100% colorfast, and are perfect for bedrooms, family or game rooms, entry ways to homes or just about anywhere…or even for sports bars, if you own one or need to add some pizzazz to your establishment. They also resist mold, mildew, fungi, and bacteria, while resisting fading from sunlight, due to UV stabilization manufactured into the fibers. And if you do happen to own a sports or workout facility, or are at least responsible for outfitting one, you might want to look into interlocking gym flooring tiles, which come in a wide variety of colors, styles, and applications.
