Rubber stair treads and risers can be installed to provide non–skid surfaces while specialized rubber reduced can be used to avoid tripping hazards from high profile rubber flooring. Installing trim helps put the finishing touches on your room.

Install on Stairs

Manufactured rubber stair treads and risers are available from a variety of retailers. For more detailed information about installing rubber stair treads and risers, see the full Installing Rubber Flooring guide on®.

Install Transitions

There are a limited amount of rubber transitions available. For low profile rubber flooring, use the same type of transitions as are used for vinyl or linoleum.

  • Rubber Reducer – Used to transition between high profile rubber floors (such as 3/8") and lower profile flooring surfaces such as vinyl or linoleum. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions regarding approved adhesives.

Install Trim

Install all wall base, shoe base and quarter round trim around the perimeter of the room, if desired. Do NOT glue the trim to the rubber flooring. Always glue to the wall and nail at an angle every 16". Caulk significant gaps between the trim and the wall.
