Whether taking on a major construction project, renovation, or addition, flooring is likely at the top of your list of considerations. Among these numerous options are a variety of composite flooring solutions. Composite flooring comes in many forms, from decking and various tiles to non-slip options and anti-fatigue mats. 

Composite flooring is simply flooring that features multiple different materials that have been blended together to result in a final product. These options are typically more economical and often easier to install than others, and they are also often durable, attractive, and eco-friendly. Greatmats features a number of composite flooring options that would be excellent flooring solution options. 

Flexecork Interlocking Rubber Tile

If you are in the market for one of the most durable composite flooring options available, the Flexecork Interlocking Cork Rubber Tile will meet your needs. This tile is made in the USA and is a mixed blend of recycled cork and rubber with a low rubber smell. 

With its interlocking design, manageable weight of 13 pounds, and large 3x3 foot tile size, assembly is a breeze - resulting in a designer look that will stand up to even the most aggressive use and abuse. 

This composite flooring would be appropriate for numerous settings and applications, from a home or commercial gym to a basement, retail, recreational or commercial setting. It provides excellent shock absorbency and anti fatigue properties, and it features non-skid properties in a variety of colors.
It is also a very environmentally friendly option, as cork is a natural and renewable flooring material, and the rubber compound comes from recycled truck tires and virgin rubber materials.

AcousiCORK Underlayment

For an underlayment providing extreme sound control, the AcoustiCORK flooring is what you’re searching for. 
Another composite flooring with a blend of rubber and cork, this underlayment delivers the low frequency acoustical performance of rubber and the improved adhesion and working characteristics of cork. 

This underlayment is designed to meet local building codes as a commercial quality option that will provide excellent noise reduction, and it is available in two different thicknesses to provide the required performance put in place by building developers or housing associations. This underlayment can be used with all types of hard surface flooring materials, and it is available in 5mm x 4 ft x 30 ft or 10mm x 4 ft x 15 ft rolls. 

Life Floor Slate Tiles

If you’re looking for a high performance and safe composite flooring option for a pool area, locker room, around a hot tub or sauna, or, any other area that tends to be wet and slippery, the Life Floor Slate Tiles will not disappoint. 

These tiles are crafted from PE/EVA foam and rubber materials, are UV-stable, non-toxic, anti-microbial, and they are designed to reduce slips and falls in wet areas with a 1 foot ASTM fall height rating at ⅜ inch of thickness. They also feature a Shore C 65 material hardness rating, so they can stand up to constant foot traffic and heavy patio furniture being placed on them. 
They are available in many beautiful colors, and they are suitable for hot or cold climates. They also come with a 5 year warranty, but their durable design will deliver long beyond that. 

Hog Heaven Anti-Fatigue Indoor Mat

Whether you’re on your feet for long hours at work, or, you’re looking for a good anti-fatigue mat to put in front of your kitchen sink, the Hog Heaven mat is among the best on the market. Not only is it extremely comfortable to stand on and slip resistant, but it is electrically conductive, chemical resistant, grease proof, and oil proof. It is also safe for welding areas.
