These interlocking patio tiles are versatile and durable, making them a great choice for many outdoor projects:


Patios and Outdoor Lounge Spaces
These patio floor tiles are a great choice for a patio, outdoor lounge, or other outdoor entertainment space. Flexible and comfortable, Patio Outdoor Tiles create a great space for guests to congregate. Though the tiles are flexible, they are strong enough to withstand the weight of patio and deck furniture without being damaged.

Slip resistance and safety is an important factor in any outdoor area, and these patio floor tiles are an excellent way to prioritize safety in your patio or lounge. With a slip-resistant texture and a water drain-through system, Patio Outdoor Tiles offer a safe surface in all sorts of weather. Because water drains through the tiles, you won’t be left with the hazard of standing water. The tops of the tiles stay dry, meaning you can enjoy the patio again soon after the rain has let up.

If you’re looking for a low-maintenance flooring option for your outdoor areas, Patio Outdoor Tiles are the perfect solution. They are UV stable, so they’ll continue to look great even if they’re in direct sunlight. Plus, the tiles are easy to clean – just damp mop them with a common household cleaner.


Wet Areas Around Showers, Pools and Hot Tubs
These outdoor patio tiles are an excellent flooring choice for wet areas around showers, pools, and hot tubs. Their slip-resistant texture provides an important safety measure in naturally slick wet areas. Additionally, the 265 pegs adorning the bottom of each tile ensure that the footing stays in place, even when the ground is saturated. Consider using these tiles as your main flooring around your pool or sauna, or adding them to places where you need extra slip-resistance, such as around diving boards or pool slides.

These patio tiles are designed with a unique perforated structure which allows water to freely flow through them. The generously-sized perforations are capable of quickly draining away even large amounts of water, such as what would result from splashing in a pool or when someone gets out of a hot tub. The design means that you will never have to deal with dangerous standing water on top of your flooring.

Additionally, these tiles are elevated, so water can flow out of them for improved drainage. Such drain-through technology keeps the tops of the tiles consistently dry, while also helping to avoid the growth of mold and mildew because of standing water beneath the tiles.

The tiles themselves are non-absorbent, meaning that they provide a durable surface even in wet areas surrounding pools and other water.


Basketball and Tennis Court Flooring
These versatile interlocking patio tiles create great flooring for basketball and tennis courts, too. The tiles are easy to install and feature a unique interlocking connecting system. Once connected, the tiles are securely locked together, so the flooring won’t shift or separate no matter how intense your basketball game or tennis match gets.

Available in three eye-catching colors, these tiles create a professional looking court. The PVC material provides just enough cushioning to be comfortable to stand on, but is not so soft that it would impede your game.

With the tiles’ drain-through technology, even the weather won’t keep you down. Water quickly flows through the tiles so that the tops of the tiles dry out quickly, meaning you can get right back to your game instead of having to wait for puddles to dry.


Boat Flooring
Many of our customers have used these interlocking outdoor tiles as flooring for their boat decks. It makes perfect sense, since these tiles allow water to drain right through them and provide a waterproof, slip-resistant surface.

These tiles can be cut to fit a wall-to-wall installation, so they’re easy to install in the unusually shaped boat decks. They’ll add an eye-catching yet professional finish to any boat, and are a great way to provide yourself with some extra traction while preserving your boat’s original flooring. Because the tiles are UV stable, you don’t have to worry about exposing them to the intense sun rays while out on the ocean, lake or river. When you’re done with your trip, you can damp mop the tiles with a common household cleaner to keep them looking great.

Installation
Installing these tiles is easy, thanks to their unique hook and loop connection system. Simply line up the tiles so that the hooks on one tile are aligned over the loops on the other and push down.

When installing the tiles in an enclosed area, start in one corner and work your way out. You can cut the tiles with a utility knife for any wall-to-wall installation.

These tiles should not be installed on top of a membrane roof, as the underside of the tiles could damage the membrane.

Greatmats Sterling Rooftop Deck Rubber Tile

Customer Profile: Jews For Jesus Rooftop Deck Tile

Greatmats’ Sterling Rubber Rooftop Tile

By Brett Hart

Greatmats Sterling Rooftop Deck Rubber TileWhen Melanie Rose was tasked with finding a replacement for curled and tattered 3/8 inch thick EPDM roof protection mats at Jews for Jesus in Skokie, Ill., protecting the roofing membrane under their rooftop deck/patio was her primary concern. She researched nearly a dozen different kinds of roof mats and tiles before deciding on Sterling Roof Top Tiles from Greatmats.

After experiencing severe curling with the previous mats, the Chicago-area non-profit facility was looking for a material that would first and foremost protect the roofing membrane. As the thickest and longest lasting option, Sterling Roof Top Tiles were a clear favorite for Melanie and her Chief Administrative Officer at the San Francisco headquarters.

Among the factors that came into play were customer service, price and durability against foot traffic, furniture and weather conditions.

The eight-year-old roof protection mats to be replaced not only failed to protect the roof membrane after they began curling, but also became hazardous to walk on and left black carbon on the feet and clothing of children playing on its surface.

Greatmats Sterling Rooftop Tile Before and After Installation

All 11 of the mats considered for the new surface were interlocking mats, but the 2” Sterling Roof Top Tiles were the only ones with more than a 1” thickness. Melanie spoke at length with sales representatives from each company and was impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of her Greatmats representative who confidently pointed her in the right direction and sent her a free sample. She eventually narrowed her field of options to the Sterling Roof Top Tiles, Jamboree Playground Tiles and Puzzle-Lock Rubber Interlocking Mats, which she presented to her CAO to make the final decision.

While the Sterling Roof Top Tiles were more expensive than the rest of the options, she and her CAO felt the benefits outweighed the difference in price. What most impressed Melanie was the fact that the tiles were well made, dense, thick and had excellent drainage. They also wouldn’t fade, freeze or curl under the stresses of full sun exposure, extreme temperatures or snow that is so common in the area. To top it off, the tile comes with a 10 year limited warranty.

Once the tiles were ordered, Jews for Jesus, hired a local handyman and his partner to install the flooring, which took them two days to complete the project. Melanie’s opinion of the product after installation only got better.

Greatmats Sterling Rubber Rooftop Tile Terra Cotta Color”I was surprised at how beautiful it looked!” Melanie said. ”Even though the pictures on the website are nice, the real thing was more beautiful. … To see and walk on the entire deck of them was impressive.”

The newly resurfaced space is used as a deck/patio for a pair of apartments above an office.

”People are always coming and going and we have events on the deck,” Melanie added. ”The seams fit tightly together. It’s very, very durable. It’s comfortable to walk on. And we have the confidence that the roofing membrane underneath is fully protected.”

K-9 Academy beats Mother Nature with patio tiles and foam mats

By Brett Hart

Fighting the elements isn’t always the easiest thing to do in Minnesota. That’s why Josiah Neuman, owner and training director of the nation’s leading dog boot camp, designed a premiere 3,600 square foot climate-controlled all-weather training area when he moved his 20-acre St. Peter training facility, Neuman K-9 Academy, onto 10 acres of pristine wilderness in Hugo, Minn., in late 2011.

“I’ve been training dogs professionally since 2007 (when he became a Certified Master Trainer),” Josiah said. “We’ve had about 1,000 dogs go through the course. Dogs come from all over. This year, we’ve had dogs return to their owners in Switzerland, Brazil and Canada (as well as all over the U.S.). We get them from all over the place specifically for the boot camp.”

At the time of the move, the new property had a pole shed in disrepair, which Josiah and his staff envisioned as the location of the indoor training area.

“Clients want their dogs to have first class accommodations,” Josiah said. “We do train outside as well, but it’s nice to have an atmosphere like this where you can walk in and focus on the dog and training and not the elements.”

After several months of intense restoration and remodeling work, the final hurdle of the project was selecting a durable floor that would stay dry while also providing a safe and comfortable surface for dogs.

“We were really going back and forth on how to treat the concrete floors previous to installing any sort of flooring, because we knew it (the concrete) would sweat,” Josiah said. “We put a lot of time and effort into researching different flooring options. It was import to us to have space that is climate controlled.”

Neuman K-9 Academy uses Greatmats patio outdoor tile as subfloor underneath its foam dog agility mats to ensure no moisture will get trapped under its soft and safe training flooring.

Neuman K-9 Academy uses Greatmats patio outdoor tile as subfloor underneath its foam dog agility mats to ensure no moisture will get trapped under its soft and safe training flooring.

In July of 2012, the staff at Neuman K-9 Academy decided blaze a new trail in K-9 flooring with an alternative use for Patio Outdoor Tiles they found on a website called Greatmats.com. The Patio Outdoor Tiles, designed for use in wet areas, would serve as a subfloor underneath waterproof interlocking dog agility mats also found at Greatmats.com. Waterproof and slip resistant, the patio tiles are designed to allow water to drain through them and are elevated, permitting air to flow underneath the flooring.

“We put down the PVC as a subfloor because… we didn’t want the moisture to be trapped underneath,” Josiah said. “It just made more sense to use a product like the PVC floor that would be designed for getting wet, airflow, things like that.”

Summer Duggan, the assistant training director at Neuman K-9 Academy, added, “It’s a firm material, but I think it even adds an extra layer of support and cushioning – as opposed to just having the mats flat on concrete.”

The idea for interlocking dog agility mats as the top surface of the floating floor came upon recommendation of other friends in the professional dog training industry. One training facility in western Wisconsin used these same kind of interlocking dog agility mats, and Josiah was particularly impressed by their performance.

“They’ve had them for a long time,” Josiah said, noting that they’ve beaten up the mats and they’re still holding up really well.

“We do sport dogs,” Josiah said. “We do bite work. So we’ll literally have a dog back tied – agitation; they’re gripping; they’re clawing; they’re pulling. These go through a lot of abuse. One of the biggest considerations with the type of flooring we were going to go with was not only… Is it comfortable for the dogs? Is it safe for them? And then very importantly, what’s the longevity of the product going to be like.”

Durability

The K-9 Academy uses the facility 3-4 times per week, specifically for off-leash behavior and training with up to 15 dogs at a time. After nearly 3 years, the flooring has suffered some expected cosmetic blemishes that come along with hard use and abuse. But the mats continue to perform as well as the day they were installed.

Summer said, “We work with different working breeds in different venues in addition to the obedience and the agility, and I’m very impressed with the durability of the product. It gets a lot of mileage. There are lots of dogs running around in here – lots of toenails, and its held up phenomenally well, even in the really high traffic areas.”

“So far, we haven’t replaced a single tile,” Josiah added.

Comfort and Safety

The new flooring system hasn’t disappointed in comfort or safety either.

“When we are doing jumps, we’re having dogs clear things and land hard,” Josiah said. “When you are training a sport dog to jump, typically you won’t start until they’re 12 months of age or older – sometimes even 2 years of age or older – because of their bones developing. With how soft these (tiles) are to land on, we can actually start dogs at a younger age, because it’s low impact.”

To get out of the elements at its previous location, Neuman K-9 Academy need to rent space, and the flooring systems varied greatly.

“One place had concrete pavers, which was not good,” Summer said. “There were situations sometimes where dogs would get scraped pads. Other places had a pebbly/rubbery floor – decent traction, but no shock absorption. This is the best!”

As for the water problem from sweaty concrete and foot traffic… There isn’t one.

“When people are coming in and out… if there’s snow, if it’s a rainy day… things dry up really nice,” Josiah said. “We’ve never had a problem with them.”

With this innovative flooring system, Neuman K-9 Academy is truly top dog.
