StayLock Tile Perforated Colors

StayLock Perforated outdoor decking tiles offer exterior patio and deck flooring for homes and light residential condos that are easily installed, easy to maintain, and is exterior 5-year UV-rated. StayLock Perforated tiles feature a non-slip perforated top surface, and they are offered in many popular colors. These PVC outdoor flooring tiles feature an ASTM fall height rating of 20 inches. This perforated flooring tile is also very good for pool surrounds and shower floors.

These outdoor rated PVC flooring tiles are 1 x1 feet, and made in the USA of durable plastic material. Our StayLock tiles provide foot traction and comfort to bare feet on exterior surfaces, such as patios, spas, pool surrounds, and rooftop decks. They also work as an indoor floor tiling option for shower floors, greenhouses, kids play areas and indoor industrial applications. This tile is rated for residential installations when used outdoors for example on flat rooftops.

Pool and Spa Applications

When you’re looking for outdoor flooring installation options, the StayLock tile offer the durability you need. These PVC deck tiles have a 7-year UV stable colorant and anti-fungal additive, ensuring that these tiles work especially well for outdoor installations where they need to stand up to tough weather and varying temperatures. Additionally, the tiles have a 5-year manufacturer warranty with them.

StayLock Perforated tiles will provide safety flooring for residential outdoor swimming pools, patios, rooftops, and decks. These PVC decking tiles are durable enough to hold tables, lawn furniture, and lawn chairs with feet larger than about 1.5 inches in diameter.

Installations around outdoor pools are among the most popular reasons to use these perforated tiles. These plastic PVC tiles will allow rainwater and water that splashes out of the pool to drain through them without absorbing any of the water, preventing moisture buildup. And even when the surface of the tiles is wet, it remains slip-resistant, unlike cement. The tiles yield a safer area for your children to walk or run around the pool.

Should you have French drains around your pool, or areas where the cement surface slopes slightly to allow for drainage, you can install the StayLock Perforated tiles directly over these areas, and their shape will slowly conform to the slopes. This product also works great for areas around hot tubs and spas, because the tiles are non-absorbent.

StayLock perforated non-slip floor tile is easy to install with our tab locking system, which ensures the tiles won’t separate over time.


Other Outdoor Applications

If you have a deck that looks worn out from splinters and old wood, the StayLock Perforated tiles can give the deck a fresh and new look that’s safe to use. Simply installing the new tiles directly over the old wood will provide a fast means of fixing the problem of a worn out deck with far less effort and cost versus sanding and staining.

You could install the PVC deck tiles anywhere outdoors that you want to provide traction. Some people have reported success installing these tiles around a children’s swing set or around other areas where children play. The PVC plastic tiles yield a softer landing if a child falls, and because the tiles can be installed over dirt or grass, they can prevent running children from slipping on wet grass or in mud. When installing the tiles over sand or dirt, we recommend placing a landscape fabric mesh material over the ground before placing the PVC decking tiles.

Don’t worry about leaving these StayLock perforated tiles in place during the winter, as you can shovel snow off the tiles, just as you would any other hard surface. However, if you plan to install these PVC plastic tiles over grass, it’s recommended that you don’t leave them in place permanently if you plan to save the grass. The perforated tiles will not allow enough sunlight from to reach the grass to keep it healthy over the long term.

Portable Applications

Another potential application use is for camping areas. You can take a few dozen of these tiles with you to a campsite and create a makeshift patio right outside your camper door. Using these tiles in this manner means people will track less dirt and grass into the camper, as the tile surface will provide a place to clean your feet. Should it rain while you’re camping, the makeshift tile patio is perfect for keeping mud out of the camper and giving people a dry place to stand or sit. The perforated design of the tiles allows rainwater to drain through the tiles, keeping the top free from mud.

Because these 1-by-1-foot tiles are lightweight and easy to disassemble and reassemble, they represent a great option for taking with you on a camping trip. You can create a makeshift patio or sidewalk in a short amount of time. With the durable construction design, they’ll stand up to any rocks or sharp objects that might be in your camping site too.

In fact, the tiles will work to create a portable narrow walkway anywhere you need one. If you’re camping at the lake and would like to give people an ability to walk to the lake with bare feet without having to walk on hot sand or across sharp gravel, these tiles work perfectly. If the ground is slightly uneven, the tiles will conform to the ground as you create the pathway.

Indoor Industrial Applications

StayLock Perforated tiles provide a sturdy flooring solution for indoor industrial applications, especially those locations where workers may be exposed to a wet floor. The PVC deck tiles provide a great grip for workers who need a steady surface to be able to perform their jobs safely without the worry of slipping. The tiles are naturally resistant to oils, acids, and toxic chemicals because of the PVC based material.

Another benefit for using StayLock Perforated tiles in indoor industrial installations is because of the anti-fatigue benefit they provide. In jobs where people must stand for long periods of time, these flexible PVC decking tiles provide a softer, cushioned surface over concrete, reducing leg fatigue.


Installation Tips

StayLock Perforated tile options have rounded edges on the underside, which makes it a smart solution for placing directly on top of rubber roofing membranes. This reduces the chance the edges of the tiles will puncture the roofing membrane. This tile provides great drainage on any flat surface as well.

When you’re ready to install these tiles, you will not require glue or adhesives. Each tile easily connects to other tiles for a long lasting, durable floor.

If installing these tiles against a wall or another large object, we recommend leaving a 1/2-inch gap between the PVC deck tiles and the object to allow for expansion of the tiles in the heat. Expansion of tiles, whether they’re rubber or plastic, is normal when the tiles are installed outdoors and exposed to widely varying temperatures. Heavy furniture, table and chairs are not recommended to be permanently placed on top of these tiles. The tiles need to be able to shift as they expand and contract in changing temperatures.

Should you need to fit the PVC deck tiles around poles, doorways, or other obstacles, you can cut them with a utility knife and a straight edge.

Due to the method of interlocking these PVC decking tiles, you can easily separate, remove, or relocate them, if needed. By not using adhesives when assembling these tiles, disassembling them doesn’t take a lot of effort.

If installing the tiles on a deck, you can just place them directly over the wood with no barrier layer between. As long as the deck’s wood is not rotted and can support the weight of people walking on it, you can install the PVC deck tiles and then use the deck as you normally would.

Should you attempt to install the tiles over a slightly uneven surface, you’ll have success, as the PVC plastic tiles will conform over time to match the contours of the surface. A hard, flat surface is recommended for installation, but the tiles will have success with slight differences in grade along the surface.

When doing a wall-to-wall installation of the PVC decking tiles, you will start in one corner of the area, leaving the slight gap for expansion, and work your way across the deck. To finish the edges of the tiles, you can use the border pieces. As you move the installation across the deck, you may need to cut tiles to fit against walls and other objects. Just use a sharp utility knife and a straight edge to size the tiles properly.


Ordering Options

The flexible PVC plastic StayLock Perforated tiles each measure 9/16-inch in thickness and are 12-by-12 inches in size. Each tile weighs 1.25 pounds, giving these PVC decking tiles a size and weight that’s extremely easy to handle.

What are all these letters in my floor tiles?

Plastics used in flooring and matting go by several different acronyms – PE, PP, PVC, LDPE, MDPE, HDPE, PEX. What does it all mean? And why should I care?

There are three commonly-used thermoplastics in the flooring industry. (Thermoplastics become soft and moldable upon heating and solidify again when cooled.) The three most commonly produced thermoplastics are polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Each of those thermoplastics also have variations that affect their intended use. Here’s how it works.

PVC Outdoor Patio Tiles are waterproof and slip resistant

Waterproof qualities of PVC make it a popular material for outdoor flooring tiles.

Polyvinyl Chloride

PVC can be rigid (RPVC) or flexible. RPVC is usually used for piping, doors, windows, bank cards and non-food packaging, but it can be brittle. With the addition of phthalates (chemicals used to soften plastics), RPVC becomes softer and more flexible, making it suitable to replace rubber in many instances which is where it becomes useful in flooring. PVC flooring is inexpensive and versatile. Chlorinated PVC is resistant to fire, oils and many chemicals. It can also withstand extreme environmental conditions. In the flooring industry, PVC is popular due to its ability to prevent dirt buildup and fend off breeding of microbes in areas that need to be kept sterile. Its waterproof properties make it a popular material for outdoor patio tiles and sports courts.

Note: There is some concern over phthalates’ health effects on humans as some studies have shown certain phthalate exposures to coincide with changes in hormone levels and increased birth defects in rodents. Phthalates typically do not persist in outdoor environments due to biodegradation, photodegradation and anaerobic degradation.

polypropylene garage floor tiles are resistant to high heat and chemicals

Durability and load rating properties make polypropylene an ideal plastic for garage flooring.

Polypropylene

PP is free of bisphenol A (BPA), a common chemical in use for making plastics since the 1960s that has been found to seep into food or beverages, causing concern over possible health effects on the brain and prostate glands. PP is lightweight, strong and flexible and resistant to high heat – up to 200 degrees Celsius. It is also resistant to corrosion, chemicals and moisture. Polypropylene has a wide variety of uses, including packaging, thermal underwear, carpeting, laboratory equipment and automotive components. In the flooring industry, PP is often used for garage floor tiles, due to durability and load rating properties.

Polyethylene

PE is the most common plastic and comes in several different densities. Medium and high density polyethylene (MDPE and HDPE) have a melting point range of between 120 and 180 degrees Celsius. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) melts between 105 and 115 degrees Celsius. LDPE, MDPE and HDPE are all resistant to strong acids and bases as

cross linked polyethylene foam combines durability and shock absorption

Cross linked polyethylene foam is commonly used in gymnastics mats.

well as gentle oxidants and reducing agents.

One third of all toys are manufactured from HDPE which has high tensile strength. Cross-linked Polyethylene (PEX) foam used in gymnastics mats generally uses HDPE and provides a firm and strong closed-cell material. This material does well rebounding to its original shape, providing bounce, cushion and/or shock absorption.

MDPE has good shock absorption and is more resistant to notching and stress cracking than HDPE. MDPE is often used for gas pipes, bags and packaging film.
LDPE is more likely to deform under tensile stress. It is commonly used for both rigid containers and plastic films.

As you can see, there are both good and bad sides to each kind of plastic, making it important to think carefully about how and where these materials should and will be used.
