What kind of Carpet flooring to use for a Roller Skating rink?

I'm sure this isn't a daily question, but what are the best options for carpeting around a roller skating rink?

Well for starters, you need a short pile carpet so the skates will roll just fine on the floor. Any type of plush, shag etc, will not work. The shorter the carpet height and denser the carpet the better. What you really need is one of two options.

Option 1 is commercial carpet tile. Commercial carpet tiles are a form of modular carpeting that come in tiles or squares with the backing pre attached. These are usually 18 inches by 18 inches all the way up to 36 inches by 36 inches. These have a short, thick construction which works great for around the outside of the skating rink. Also, as they are modular, you can replace them easily if one or a few become torn or stained. The nice thing is you can find these at a heavy discount at Beckler's Carpet in Dalton, GA for as low as 89 cents per square foot (or sometimes even cheaper!).

Option 2 is to go with a short pile commercial carpet that is roll goods. These can come in 15 and 12 foot wide selections. You can also check out Joy Carpet, a manufacturer of unique glow in the dark carpeting for places like roller rinks, arcades, game rooms, card rooms, home theaters, etc. Beckler's in Dalton also sells many different types of inexpensive commercial carpet as well as all of the products made by Joy Carpet.
