Easy to Assemble Tiles
This tile has a six loop-to-peg interlocking system, which is slightly different from the polypropylene tiles. However, the installation method is nearly the same and allows for a straight-edge look once installed. The tiles attach like a puzzle; two sides of the tile have loops, and the other two sides have pegs. Since a simple downward push is all that’s required to snap the tiles together, the interlocking system makes installation almost effortless. A plastic mallet and kneepads may be used during installation to facilitate locking the pegs and loops together. Please note that epoxy painted concrete has less surface friction; therefore, the tile may potentially shift if installed directly on an epoxy painted subfloor. Double-sided tape or rubber underlayment is recommended to help prevent shifting.
When installing the Flexible PVC floor tiles over the carpet, you will need to use a hard surface such as a 6” x 20” piece of plywood to lock the loops in place over the carpet. You would slide the plywood out as you progress with the installation.
TIP: Please note, although the tile will hide subfloor imperfections, a rigid, strong base floor is required. This product should not be used over grass, compacted ground, or non-rigid surfaces.
Slip Resistant Flooring
The roughly textured surface reduces the probability of slipping on the Flexible PVC floor tile and provides an additional level of safety as you walk on top of the tile. However, the tile does not prevent slipping caused by liquid spilled on the surface. Using a degreaser may make the tiles slippery. Make sure to take proper precautions when cleaning and that the tiles are fully dry before walking on top of them.
Stain Resistant Floor
PVC is a hard-to-stain, plastic material and is also resistant to liquid spills and other debris. Dirt and other debris can just simply be swept away; while oil, grease, and other liquids can be wiped or dried off.
TIP: For harder-to-remove stains, using a degreaser is ideal. If the tiles are to be used in an area susceptible to acidic liquid spills such as battery acid, it is suggested that you place a protective mat over the floor as such substances are likely to damage the tiles.
Just as these tiles are easily installed, they are also easily removed. They will remain locked together until intentionally unlocked. However, when detaching the tiles, be sure to remove them all from the same side. Made to be portable, these tiles can be taken with you wherever you go. They are lightweight for your convenience. Whether you are moving residences or traveling for a trade show, you can easily take your floor tiles with you.
Lightweight and Durable
The Flexible PVC floor tile weighs only a few pounds, so the assembly of your floor is a simple experience. Although the tile is very light, it can sustain significantly heavy loads. Flexible PVC Interlocking Tiles are perfect for residential garages, workshops, warehouses, etc. From pool tables to RVs, this tile is strong enough to hold a tremendous amount of weight.
Garage Floor Use
Whether your garage is designed to be a game room or for storage, the tiles are perfect for bearing the weight of large motor vehicles, tool chests, refrigerators, pool tables, and other items you may keep in a garage. These tiles are constructed with a commercial grade flexible PVC that makes them very quiet when walked on. The drawback of the material is that a grid for air flow is not possible when used for vehicular traffic. If you drive into your garage when raining or snowing, the tiles will need to be removed, cleaned and dried several times annually. If the Flexible PVC floor tiles are installed in a converted garage in which vehicles are not routinely entering, then they do not require the additional maintenance of regularly removing the tiles to clean them.
TIP: Plywood or another protective flat rigid surface should be used when using jacks or other sharp, heavy objects. Please note, pinpoint weights may cause discoloration and potentially damage the tile. Please consider tiling around a permanent vehicle lift. Although the polymer plastic is UV protected, the Flexible PVC is not intended for outdoor use.
Other Floor Uses
One of the many distinctive characteristics of this tile is its appearance. The Flexible PVC Interlocking Tile has such a tasteful, neutral aspect to it that it can be used in many different ways. You may use them as a flooring solution for your home gym, storage room, home office or a trade show.
