More on Dalsouple…
Dalsouple® Australasia was one of the few suppliers of sustainable rubber flooring in Australia and New Zealand. The French company is currently (as of Nov 2019) re-tooling, and at this stage is no longer producing DalNaturel.
Effective as of 2017 Dalsouple DalNaturel is no longer manufactured due to prohibitive costs and the threat of raw material supply issues. Also of concern has been clear felling of forests and deforestation in areas most suited to rubber tree growth coupled with sociology-economic reasons.
Although our biggest seller was Dalsouple® DalNaturel rubber new age flooring, it has now been replaced by SBR manufacture (Synthetic Butadiene Rubber).
We also sell recycled, synthetic, and ESD varieties for indoor and outdoor uses. No matter what the application, no job is too big or too small… as long as it is above 25m2 😉
2020 heralds in new production capabilities from the newly re-located factory in Bouchemaine, 300km from Paris.
The importance of sustainability of this product and letting designers and architects know about the product is crucial. Please spread the word!
Again, the minimum order quantity for Dalsouple is 25m2.
For most large orders allow 12 weeks to arrive, and for small orders allow 5 as we express air freight.
Basic Facts about Rubber Flooring
Typically rubber is considered an organic material as it comes from the sap of the rubber tree. However – the main type of “rubber” flooring is synthetic or SBR grade. It is cheaper, more scratch resistant, anti- allergenic and hardens over time while being simpler to clean than other conventional rubber floors. Yet for flooring purposes in the United States, manufacturers will recycle items, such as rubber tyres, into this versatile flooring. This manufacturing process is ideal for homeowners who are considering eco-friendly flooring alternatives.
Rubber is water resistant and can handle harsh chemicals (one of the reasons why it can often be found in commercial or industrial settings), and offers a soft, cushioned feeling underfoot. With the development of flooring technology, manufacturers can offer a wide range of patterns, colours and designs to make this material desirable in residential spaces.
You may find rubber floor tiles with rounded spot or coin patterns or have the same ridge patterns that you would find on textured stone tiles. The colour scheme for rubber tile is enormous, as you can find solid colours and mottled colours. Some homeowners will create patterns, motifs and murals on their floor by using different coloured rubber tiles.
Rubber has a well-earned reputation for being able to endure almost any abuse without getting scraped, marked or dented. Imagine if you took that same rubber, made a thick, super-strong version of it in attractive patterns and colours, and manufactured flooring tiles out of it. That is exactly what rubber floor tiles are. Many rubber tiles are even made from recycled materials, making an already green product even greener.
There are several benefits to rubber floor tiles over conventional flooring methods like wood, regular tile, or vinyl. Rubber tiles are one of the sturdiest flooring materials on the market.
They are effectively impervious to water, naturally resist stains, and are resilient to scuffing. Rubber flooring was originally engineered for extremely high-traffic public areas that thousands of people walk on daily. It is designed to stand up to the harshest abuse you can give it.

No one makes rubber flooring in Australia any more, with all of it now being imported.
The majority of other rubber on the market today is either recycled (from car or truck tyres) or synthetic (SBR, from the by-product of crude oil).
