The owner of CrossFit Beorn in Bury St Edmunds contacted us recently about supplying a rubber gym floor cleaning machine. As it turns out he had already been browsing our website and spotted we had a reconditioned Karcher BD40/25C scrubber dryer available which he felt would be suitable for the job.
Here at A3 Machines we get asked to supply equipment for all sorts of environments and from experience I can tell you that when it comes to floor cleaning you really need to try before you buy. With this in mind we offered to come across to the Gym in Suffolk and demonstrate the machine on-site cleaning the rubber flooring.
CrossFit Beorn specialise in running cross fit classes led by a specialist coach who focuses on keeping you on track to reach your fitness goals using a variety of exercises and equipment. The idea is you get the best of personal training and group training at a fraction of the cost, plus training in a group really helps push you and gives you an extra incentive to work harder.

Due to the nature of the business the floor was fitted out with large sections of rubber matting to prevent slipping and provide an impact absorbing surface more suitable to high intensity workout activities. The flooring works well for their needs however they want to present a clean environment for their customers but have had trouble removing dirty footprints and heavy chalk marks, especially around the area where the pull up rings are situated. Textured surfaces are well known for being difficult to clean as they can become easily ingrained with dirt.
Demonstrating Rubber Gym Floor Cleaning with a Karcher BD40/25C
The Karcher BD40/25C was setup on site and the clean water tank filled with water and a mild detergent. The machine was the run over the rubber flooring to see how it would cope. The machine works by releasing the diluted detergent onto the flooring and then immediately scrubbing it into the surface using a polypropylene brush. This action released the dirt from the floor whilst a suction vacuum and hose extract the now soiled detergent into a separate tank on the machine. Below are some photos of the demonstration
Here you can see how the Karcher has cut through the dirt on the rubber matting
The chalk marks are the biggest issue
This photo shows a section where the chalk marks have been removed.
The machine worked well on the rubber flooring and the owner of the gym was very impressed, especially when he saw how thick and dirty the water was inside the recovery tank. Convinced this was the machine for the job he decided to buy the machine which we left with him, hence saving a delivery charge.
Reconditioned Floor Cleaning Machines
Reconditioned floor cleaning machines offer excellent value and A3 Machines often have stock however you really do need to call us for the latest equipment list as they are popular with customers and stock is changing frequently.
Karcher themselves no longer stock the BD40/25 having replaced it with the BR40/25, earlier this year wep ublished an overview of the Karcher BR40/25 which you will find at: http://sales.a3machines.info/karcher-br40-25-review/
