Ramsey County Family Service Center – Entrance Linear Tiles

Minimum maintence entrance tiles a welcome addition to family service center

Appearance, ease of installation and ease of repair are all important aspects when deciding on flooring for high traffic areas – especially to someone in charge of installation and maintenance. Those factors, as well as price and performance specs, guided Ramsey County (Minn.) Building Services Manager Bruce Christofferson to Greatmats Entrance Linear Tiles when deciding on flooring for the entryway of the Ramsey County Family Service Center, located in Maplewood, Minn., back in December of 2013.

Greatmats modular entrance tiles are made from 100 percent recycled materials and come with a three-year limited warranty. The interlocking tile design allows them to easily snap together without any need for adhesives. They are waterproof, UV resistant and feature a non-slip ribbed carpet top surface. It was the modular design of the American-made 1×1 foot by 1/2 inch tiles, and the ease of installation, that piqued Christofferson’s interest.

Operating as a homeless shelter, the Ramsey County Family Service Center is operated 24/7 and temporarily houses as many as 65 adults and children at one time. After a year and a half of heavy use at the facility, the tiles have more than lived up to expectations.

”Many of the building’s users use strollers and other carts,” Christofferson said. ”The mats have withstood the cart traffic without movement or separation. The carpet has not separated from the backing, even with daily cart traffic. … The tiles continue to look new.”

With less time spent on maintenance, the staff at the family service center is able to focus better on helping Ramsey County families find employment and transition into stable housing.

Sundance Mat 4×6 Ft x 3/4 Inch Straight Edge Standard

The Greatmats 4×6 Ft x 3/4 Inch Straight Edge Standard Sundance horse stall product is the straight edge version of our very popular Interlocking Sundance Stall Mat. These incredibly durable and affordable 4×6 rubber stall mats work perfectly in horse stalls, weight rooms, and Cross Fit gyms, or wherever the smell of rubber is not a concern indoors.

horse stall mat weight greatmats

The 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. Straight Edge Standard Sundance Tile features a pebble like top surface for added traction to your floor. The stall mat weight of 100 pounds per tile means these tiles are not designed to be portable, but they’ll work great as a permanent type of surface installation in a horse stall.

Features of Sundance 4×6 Tiles

Here are some of the key features of our Straight Edge Standard Sundance thick rubber stall mat tiles.

Materials: The primary material used in making these tiles is recycled rubber.

Water resistance: Water or other liquids will not penetrate these horse stall mats.

stall mats gym greatmats

 

horse stall mats for home gym 4x6
No-slip surface: Each tile offers a slightly rough, pebble like surface that prevents slippage. The surface is called a punter surface.

Designed to Stay Put: The stall mat weight per tile measures about 100 pounds each, meaning the tiles are not easily portable. And the 3/4 inch thickness of these 4×6 stall mats means they cannot be rolled up easily for carrying.

Easy installation: As long as you have a flat surface over which to lay the mats, you can install them relatively easily. Place the rubber mats over the top of concrete, dirt or gravel. Because the horse stall mat weight is 100 pounds per tile, at least two people should work together on installation.

Cutting: Even though these 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. thick rubber stall mat tiles are heavy and have a sturdy construction, you can cut them to fit around the edges of the stall with a sharp utility knife and a straight edge. You then can bend the mat across a 2×4 and snap it before cutting the other side, just like a piece of drywall. Another option is to cut the rubber mat with a jigsaw or with an electric circular handsaw, but you’ll want some help to complete this process safely. Using a saw will also cause the blade to dull.

Benefits of Sundance Horse Mats

Although the traditional surface for a horse stall is firmly packed dirt, sprinkled with hay or straw as bedding, thick rubber mats, such as our Straight Edge Sundance mats, have quite a few advantages over using dirt in the horse stalls.

Lower costs: With heavy rubber mats installed, you’ll use less hay and bedding in the stalls. The horse won’t grind the bedding into the dirt, meaning less is needed.

No More Muddy Floor: A dirt floor will soak up water and urine, eventually turning into a muddy mess. Our Sundance mats do not soak up water, meaning the floor of the stall remains easy to clean. Additionally, the sturdy rubber stall mat weight means it resists curling or buckling, so water cannot seep underneath.

No More Rutted Floor: Horses may cause ruts in a dirt floor, leaving it uneven for walking and unsafe. The horse stall mat weight allows it to remain in place, providing a smooth surface for the horse and for the owner.

Mucking: Cleaning up after the horse becomes much easier with thick rubber mats installed. With mats, you don’t have to deal with muddy or uneven ground inside the stall that makes shoveling and sweeping difficult. You also won’t lose your gravel or other fill during the mucking process.

Cushioning: Although our rubber horse mats are sturdy and provide a hard surface, they do have a little bit of give to them. This means they’re softer on the horse’s joints than concrete or hard-packed dirt or gravel. These rubber mats provide shock absorption and anti-fatigue benefits for large animals.

Warming layer: Having a layer of stall mat weight in the tiles provides a bit of insulation for the horse versus standing and laying on a cold dirt floor. A heavy horse stall mat weight works especially well for a horse with joint or arthritis problems.

Selecting the Right Horse Stall Mat

Each horse stall mat can support the weight of the horse as it moves around, as long as you select a high quality of mat. Some key features to consider include the following.

Thickness: Our 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. Straight Edge Sundance mat tiles provide a desirable thickness level. The 3/4 of an inch of thickness supports the weight of the horse extremely well, although thicker pads are available (usually up to 2 inches in thickness). However, installing mats thicker than 3/4 of an inch can be difficult because of the added weight they have. A 4×6 rubber mat that’s 2 inches thick will weigh more than 250 pounds.

4x6 stall mats

 

rubber mats for horse stalls greatmats
Straight edges: It’s extremely important to have mats that either lock together or that have straight edges that tightly fit together. Should gaps develop between the tiles, you may find water and urine leaking into the gaps and muddying the ground beneath. This may compromise the ground beneath the mats.

Interlocking mats: Although our 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. Straight Edge Sundance mats do not interlock at the edges, Greatmats does offer interlocking mats. An interlocking mat option represents a smarter idea for your horse stall mat choices if your horse likes to dig or paw at things in its stall. The seams of interlocking mats fit together tighter than straight edge mats, preventing damage from pawing.

Weight: Even though thicker and larger stall mat weight makes the tiles more difficult to install, heavier mats are more desirable. Heavier mats have less of a chance of slipping out of place or buckling under the weight of the horse moving around. Because of the weight of these rubber tiles, you’ll definitely want some help with the installation process.

Sundance Mat 4x6 Straight Edge Standard wp12
Construction quality: Selecting a horse stall mat weight of a high quality, such as our Greatmats Sundance 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. mats, is a must, which ensures the mat won’t shift around or curl at the edges. Lesser quality rubber mats may include non-uniform thickness or a thickness level that’s less than stated in the specifications, both of which could causes a failure of the mat through buckling. Cheaper mats won’t have perfectly straight edges either, meaning they won’t fit together.

Should you need a different size or thickness of horse stall mats than our 4×6 rubber stall mats, Greatmats carries several options. Just contact our helpful customer service center or look through the links on our site to see what’s available.

Preparation for Installation

Before ordering the thick rubber stall mat tiles, you will want to closely measure the area of the stall. Mats should go to the edges of the stall, just to ensure that there’s no chance of tripping over the edges for you or the horse. Figure out how many square feet you need.

The standard size of one mat measures 48 inches wide by 72 inches in length, resulting in 24 square feet per tile. Here are the number of tiles you’ll need for some standard horse stall layouts.

10 by 12 feet: 5 tiles
10 by 14 feet: 6 tiles
12 by 12 feet: 6 tiles
12 by 14 feet: 7 tiles
12 by 16 feet: 8 tiles

Before your 4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. tiles from Greatmats arrive, you’ll want to prepare the stall area. Clean up the area, removing any manure, stray bedding and straw.

Make sure the area is level. The area doesn’t have to be perfectly level to the point that you use a bubble level to measure it, but it should be flat enough that the thick rubber stall mat tiles will lay flat.

Although you may install the 4×6 stall mats directly over a dirt floor, you may want to lay down a bed of a couple of inches of pea gravel. This provides a good base to ensure a flat area over which to place the rubber mat tiles.

Other Uses

Beyond using the Straight Edge Sundance tile mats inside a horse stall, you could use them for an installation in a weight room. The thick mats will protect the floor underneath from any dropping of heavy free weights on the floor. Additionally, these rubber tiles will stand up to heavy exercise equipment without suffering damage.

However, these tiles do yield a rubbery smell, greater than that of other types of Greatmats flooring options. If you choose to use these thick rubber stall mat tiles indoors, you may experience some odor, especially in a room with little ventilation.

AcoustiCork RCLT500 5 mm Underlayment

Greatmats’ new AcoustiCork RCLT500 5 mm 30 Ft Roll is a pairing of renewable cork and recycled rubber that results in a flooring solution with unmatched sound control properties. The harmony of both of these materials results in the AcoustiCork RCLT500 having both the low frequency acoustic performance that rubber is known for, as well as the adhesion and working properties that makes cork such a popular product. This combination results in an optimal sound control underlayment that is suitable for a wide range of hard surface flooring applications, while also being 20 percent lighter than comparable products. A roll is 5 mm thick, 4 ft wide, and 30 ft long.

Ceramic Underlayments greatmatsLaminate Floor Underlayment greatmats

AcoustiCork RCLT500 is made possible through the use of several materials coming together in a multi-material composite which creates a product with several resonance frequencies, thus resulting in exceptional IIC (Impact Isolation Class) performance. The AcoustiCork RCLT500 has improved adhesion properties with thin-set mortars and other traditional flooring due to the cork granules in the composite material. The AcoustiCork RCLT500 is available in two different thicknesses in order to meet or exceed performance needs of the building code, and/or the condominium application requirements, all while not leading to an excessively thick mat. The material is designed to be naturally resistant to mold and mildew, while also reducing the in room step sound and providing greater comfort for standing. AcoustiCork RCLT500 does all this while still being 20 percent lighter than similar products and can be used under almost any type of hard surface finished floor material.

Portable Dance Floor Tile 1×1 Ft

Portable dance floor tiles are durable, created to withstand repeated assemblies, and interlock to form a professional looking dance floor. This portable dance floor can go with you anywhere, and is the perfect solution for event venues, traveling dance troupes and more.

portable dance floor greatmats

These interlocking dance floor tiles ensure that you have a dance floor where and when you need one. Designed to withstand multiple assemblies, these tiles are durable, professional looking, and create an eye-catching dance floor perfect for banquet centers, performances, weddings, practice and more. Suitable for both indoor and temporary outdoor installations, this dance floor is ready to go wherever you do.

The Details About the Portable Dance Floor Tiles
These dance floor tiles are designed with the needs of a professional performer or business in mind. This floor holds up to the rigorous use expected of a heavy-duty dance floor, and it will look great during event after event. You can choose from many luxurious wood grain finishes, or opt for a slate finish for a more modern touch. With a secure, locking fit, these tiles create a stunning dance floor that doesn’t look temporary at all.


The portable dance floor is suitable for use with many different types of dance shoe types, including high heels.

When choosing the appropriate sized dance floor, we recommend 9 square feet of space per person. Each tile is 1 square foot, so you can order as many tiles as necessary to get the dance floor size that you desire. Expecting a larger crowd for a future event? You can simply order more tiles to create a larger dance floor.

portable dance floors greatmats
We also offer transport carts that can be used to stack and store the tiles, which can be particularly helpful when you’re working with larger portable dance floors.

These dance floor tiles can be installed over any flat surface, including concrete and carpeting. If you are assembling a dance floor on top of concrete, we recommend that you use a 3mm rubber underlayment to provide some cushion and sound dampening.

The tiles feature a durable tab assembly so that these tiles will withstand countless assemblies. The dance floor will not start to separate and wear out as some other products will. These tiles are easy to assemble and easy to break down, so you don’t waste time on setup and can instead focus more time and energy on your performance.

And if you only use the tiles periodically, it’s no problem. The tiles measure 12 inches x 12 inches, so they’re easy to store in a closet, storage area, or basement until you need them again.

Why These Dance Floor Tiles Are the Right Choice for Your Next Event
Why choose these dance floor tiles? There are plenty of reasons why these tiles are better than the other products out there.

Portability
Max Tile portable dance floor tiles are designed with easy transportation, storage and assembly in mind. These tiles can be installed over any hard surface, giving you plenty of options no matter what venue you’ll be traveling to. Additionally, these tiles are built to last, meaning that through performance after performance, they’ll hold together as tightly as they did the first time you assembled the dance floor.

modular dance floor tiles greatmats

Though the 12×12-inch tiles are easy to store just about anywhere, consider keeping them assembled in larger squares of 9 tiles so that you can quickly and easily assemble a dance floor. It will mean less prep work for you and more time for you to focus on the event itself.

Quality
These portable dance floor tiles are made in the USA. With a 5-year warranty against manufacturer defects, you know that you’re investing in a quality product that a manufacturer is proud to stand behind.

These dance floor tiles are waterproof for use in any weather. They are made from a commercial-grade vinyl top, and feature durable interlocking tabs. These tiles are made to hold up under repeated uses and are ready to withstand the traffic of commercial use.


Versatility
Not only are these tiles versatile in terms of their ability to go nearly anywhere with you, but you can also customize the dance floor size to your particular needs. If you’re expecting a larger event, order some extra tiles and create a large floor with plenty of dance space. For a smaller event, you can set up just some of the tiles, so you don’t have the awkward appearance of a partially full dance floor. The ability to customize the dance floor’s size can be a major money saver, as you won’t need separate floors for different types of events. And if you’re not sure just how many tiles to order, don’t worry – if your dance floor turns out to be too small, you can always add on more tiles later.

Fast Installation
Your time is precious, and these dance floor tiles are the perfect solution when you’re on the go. You can assemble a 10 x 20 foot portable dance floor in minutes when you use these tiles. It’s even faster to disassemble the floor.

When time is of the essence, you’ll be glad that you’ve opted for these portable dance floor tiles. There are no large, heavy pieces to lug around, and no extra tools required for assembly. Plus, with no special tools required for installation, you won’t have to worry about arriving at an event only to discover that you’ve left an important tool back at home.


Professional Appearance
When you’re traveling to a performance or are providing entertainment at a wedding, you want a dance floor that is eye-catching and professional looking. These dance tiles create a floor that will not disappoint. Choose from a variety of attractive finishes for the exact aesthetic that you want. Easy snap-on border ramps and corners create the perfect event floor package. Your dance floor will look clean and complete.

Potential Uses for Portable Dance Floor Tiles
These versatile portable dance floor tiles are ideal for countless situations. Some of their most popular uses include:
– Temporary dance floors for dance troupes on tour who never know just where they’ll be performing.
– Backup dance floor solutions for professionals hosting dance workshops or competitions who need a little extra space just for a few days.
– Removable dance floors for venues, like hotels, which host banquets and weddings.
– Traveling DJs or entertainment professionals who need a dance floor that can go with them.
– Temporary dance floors for venues, such as recreation centers, hosting dance classes or events.

When you invest in these portable dance floors, you’re investing in your business and your future. A portable dance floor allows you to:
– Travel anywhere without worry about the facilities at the next venue
– Perform confidently, knowing that you will always have a safe, quality dance surface (even if it’s only a backup to a venue’s stage)
– Travel to or perform at venues which couldn’t otherwise accommodate a dance performance
– Perform both indoors and out without worry of damaging your dance floor
– Expand your studio capacity, yet save space by simply packing up your dance floor when you’re done
