Sound dampening and shockproof
Granuflex’s recycled, or circular rubber floor and wall coverings are used in a diverse variety of sports facilities all over the world. Users love them because they help them avoid injuries and they increase comfort during sports.
Granuflex rubber products are beautifully finished and are made entirely from recycled rubber. They absorb sound and vibrations; they are anti-slip and they boast a particularly long life. And because rubber is insusceptible to the effects of moisture, sunlight and frost, it can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Europe’s biggest fitness chains invariably opt for Granuflex floors. We offer an extensive range, because different floors have different requirements. For example, the cushioning in a crossfit area calls for a different floor than the stable base needed in weightlifting. At Granuflex we have developed a complete range of tiles with a large variation in sizes, level of cushioning and finish. It means the most suitable floor can be selected for any and every application.
It hardly needs saying that all Granuflex circular rubber tiles excel in wear- and shock-resistance and their sound-absorbing properties are second to none. They are also easy to maintain, regardless of whether the floor is indoors or outdoors, and they come with a Gold Status for air quality.
Horse lovers set great store by the well-being of their animals. The risk of leg injuries must be minimised as must the likelihood of moisture under their hooves.
Available in a variety of different thicknesses and colours, Granuflex’s robust and moisture-permeable mats have been specially designed for stables, horseboxes and, of course, walkways.
A bespoke tile has been specially developed for paddocks, with maximum damping and, importantly, dowel/hole alignment. All this ensures the paddock floor remains perfectly in place, under all circumstances.
Safety requirements don’t get more stringent than they are in shooting ranges. Irrespective of whether they are used by amateurs or professionals, bullets must be absorbed with zero risk and must never ricochet. Granuflex’s specially developed shooting plates offer several advantages. They are suitable for walls and floors and they absorb noise.
The recycled, or circular rubber from which the shooting plates are made has a minimal environmental impact. And because this rubber is insusceptible to weather influences, they are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The shooting plates are available in different thicknesses so that a selection can be made according to the applicable bullet calibre.
Artificial turf on football pitches is only usable if an infill material is applied. Granuflex’s Sportsfill Eco+ granulate is completely circular because it is derived from recycled automotive tyres.
Sportsfill Eco+ gives an artificial grass pitch optimum sport-technical properties. The ball doesn’t roll too fast, for example, and it bounces to a normal height. And, not unimportantly: sliding tackles can be made on it safely.
Drainage and stabilisation are crucial factors in synthetic turf pitches. The easy-to-install underlay of Optidrain drainage rolls improves the damping effect of the artificial grass. Moreover, it ensures that water is evenly distributed across the substrate, so that it is quickly absorbed or drained away in the desired direction.
Athletes perform better on a stable, resilient surface. To keep loading on their joints to an absolute minimum, the correct amount of damping is crucial. Anti-slip properties speak for themselves, of course, as does effective drainage.
Athletics tracks are often laid seamlessly. A tried-and-tested method is to mix Granuflex circular SBR granulate with polyurethane, which acts as a binding agent. It creates a durable underlay on which sport really becomes a pleasure.
