EVAGYM – Technical flooring in EVA (thickness 1 cm)
The EvaGym flooring is a new product developed in 2021 from the successful EVA tatami and the need for a highly shock-absorbent but more practical technical flooring than the EcoGym, which is made of recycled rubber granules.
The differences between EvaGym and EcoGym
EcoGym, available in two different versions (1 cm thick code 9201 and 2 cm thick code 9202), is an extremely specific product, suitable for Crossfit ® and functional training activities which are characterized by the dropping of heavy tools, and the possible presence of sweat on the ground. The agglomerate of rubber granules is the best solution for contexts of this type. On the other hand, a granular flooring of recycled rubber is harder to clean, heavy to remove and replace, and not totally odourless.
EVA is a closed-cell polymer, easy to clean, light, with excellent absorption qualities and an excellent degree of lift and stability. For areas dedicated to training, especially if training on the ground, where there is no systematic falling of tools, but which are instead accompanied to the ground, EvaGym then is the right product for use.
The joints are precise, do not generate leaks and are designed in such a way as to make installation quick and practical, which is very useful in cases where the multi-functionality of the rooms requires frequent changing of the tiles. The weight of 2 kg per tile further facilitates moving operations.
The material: EVA
The EVA used is the same as the tatami tiles but EvaGym, has a greater density and hardness, so much so that the 10 mm thick tile weighs 2 kg, like 20 mm thick tatami tiles. On a practical level, this results in greater stability and a lower “gelatin” effect, notwithstanding the high absorption qualities. The tatami is a softer and more rubbery flooring, designed for martial arts, EvaGym is a soft flooring but designed for general training, even with weights, and therefore more compact and stable.
- As for tatami tiles, EvaGym tiles are produced by moulding. During production, a silicone-based protective is used which makes the new tile slightly slippery. Cleaning with a degreaser eliminates this initial slipperiness.
- EVA is an elastic and dense closed-cell polymer. For example, placing a weight on the floor can cause denting. Therefore, EvaGym tiles are not suitable for the reckless use of heavy and angular tools, such as clubs and hammers; objects that can mark and scratch the surface of the tiles.
