Rubber is a highly durable material that’s PVC free. When compared to other types of flooring, rubber tiles provide an unmatched level of cost-to-life-cycle benefit. Roppe are one of the largest rubber flooring manufacturers in the USA, supplying the world with a range of options that feature different colours and textures, all made with 10% natural rubber.
While iRubber do not keep stock of Roppe rubber flooring in Australia, this is due to all orders being made to order. Roppe can sometimes get stock to Australia in about a week, but usually manufacturing takes about two weeks, plus another week to air freight to anywhere in Australia or New Zealand.
Roppe Corporation is a member of the US Green Building Council. Visit the US Roppe website for more information – but don’t forget to come back to iRubber to order samples!
