FloorGuardian is the best and most sustainable way to protect your hardwood gym floors against shoes, heels, chairs, and other damage allowing use of the facility for non-athletic events. You can use our gym floor cover for convention flooring, event flooring, and lots more! Most gyms are only used for athletic events, but with our product you can use your gym all year around! Gyms are the perfect facility to increase revenue by hosting events. There is generally parking, concessions, and restrooms conveniently located near the gym.

FloorGuardian comes in any width up to 12 FT. And as long as required, but typically most installs use rolls that are 6 feet wide. We developed the product to be light weight and easy to handle. The rolls are rolled out next to each other and held together by 4-inch-wide reusable nylon Velcro. This allows for ease of handling and storage. All FloorGuardian products include a full 3-year warranty for manufacturing defects. Our product protects your floors unlike other options that only cover it. Our material is 1/4 inch thick and is a very effective accoustic barrier.

In 2014, we developed a roll-up machines for the material making it easier to store. We also have a smaller roller for the velcro bands. Ask about these when ordering your Floor Guardian System.

FloorGuardian uses FossShield, an ion-based patented antimicrobial additive. Unlike other antimicrobial agents that are applied topically, FossShield is blended directly into the fibers and is a permanent non-leaching addition. FossShield is used in surgical masks and gowns and meets the SpectraScield 9500 N95 standard.

Anti-microbial & stays strong

Floor guardian is a carpet-like material that lays flat on the floor eliminating the trip hazard associated with plastic and vinyl tarps. It is 1/4” thick providing a cushion against chair, staging, and high heel damage. It is also an excellent acoustical barrier for large, open areas.

The pieces are easy to clean and maintain by the customer or it can be professionally mantained by Chem-Dry. Floor Guardian rolls are laid out side by side. The seams are tightly held together using reusable 4” wide Velcro strips which make the floor monolithic.

Ordering Floor Guardian

The first step to ordering our floor protection is to determine the size of the area you would like to cover. For example: a typical gym would be 72 ft wide by 102 ft long. FloorGuardian is made in 6 feet-wide strips for portability and easy storage.

Once you have provided the size of your area and delivery location, we will determine the size of your FloorGuardian system. We will then provide you with a cost per sq ft. including freight and shipping to your facility.

Once a 50% deposit is made, we will set a delivery date for your rolls – usually 4 to 6 weeks if we do not have inventory. A FloorGuardian representative will meet the material at your facility to do a final trimming and set up. The material is always shipped with a little extra length, and we will do a final cut to make sure everything fits your gym.

Our representative will show your staff the best way to set up, take down, and maintain the system. They will also be available to answer any questions you may have.


100% GREEN. Transformed from recycled soda and water bottles into a soft, carpet-like material that wears like iron. Made from 100% recycled products and is 100% recyclable when its life is over.

In 2016 we completely redesigned FloorGuardian using a yarn system made from 100% recycled plastic drink bottles. This new generation Floor Guardian was designed as a 100% sustainable product and can be recycled

Most gym covers are made from Polyethylene which is banned in some states. These competing tarps use costly gaffers tape to seam the pieces which can cost of hundreds of dollars per event and must be tossed in the trash/landfill after every use. FloorGuardian avoids this cost and waste with reusable Velcro seams.

How Plastic Bottles Are Recycled Into FloorGuardian

Step 1: Plastic PET containers are picked up at community recycling centers and sorted by type and color.

Step 2: The labels and caps are removed, then the bottles are washed, crushed and chopped into small pieces called, “flake”.

Step 3: The flake is melted down and processed into fiber.

Step 4: The fiber is made into FloorGuardian.
